The Kingdom of Abrus, commonly referred to as Abrus, is a self-declared sovereign state based in the continent of North America. Its claim as a sovereign state is disregarded by external observers and is commonly referred to as a micronation.
The Kingdom of Abrus is a Micronation which was officially founded in 2015 but to some people, have suffered a hardship of inactive government and dissolution attempts over the years.
The Kingdom of Abrus was established on November 11, 2015 as a monarchy by Sean Cavanaugh. On January 14 of the following year, Sean Cavanaugh decided to self-proclaim the nation as a commonwealth realm and gave up the position of Monarch to Queen Elizabeth II as the unofficial-official Monarch of the nation. At the time, the flag and coat of arms of Abrus were created. The flag represented a variation of the Union Flag, and presented the commonwealth's coat of arms. Sean Cavanaugh became the official Prime Minister of the nation. However, on March 3, 2016, parliament decided to revert the country back to a monarchy, with a new Monarch (Stacey Hitz) at the helm. Then on September 12, 2016, the Prime Minister called for a 'Government Reset' on the slow and non-functioning government. It is during this time, that the Kingdom was re-established as a republic. This new republican government has been said to resemble that of the United States government in certain areas. On January 7 through multiple debates between the legislature speaker and the President, the Council of Abrus decided it was best to dissolve Abrus. It wasn't until Jan. 14th that the vote in the council came to a conclusion, and after a few weeks of battle between the Council and the President, the nation was dissolved by a unanimous vote.
A New Nation
After the Kingdom of Abrus re-established in January 2017, the King established a new nation, that would serve as an active nation in the micronational community, and would no longer face an inactive government. The provisional government of Cavlan was the first to come out of the wreckage. With a Head of Operations in place, government types and how our government would be run was officially put into plan, and afterwards The Republic of Abrus was established 2/2/2018. Sean Cavanaugh, former King of Abrus, and Head of Operations of the Provisional Government of Cavlan, declared himself as ruling dictator of the Republic of Abrus, and has plans for the nation that will only make it succeed in the Micronational community.
The Republic of Abrus, since it's establishment has been working to gain back the title it once held as an active micronation that had active participation by the government.
