Treaties

Treaty of Meteorology

The Treaty of Meteorology is a treaty between the Republic of Markland and Contendus Loci stating that the Republic of Markland is responcable for all Meteorological duties in Contendus Loci.

The Republic of Markland's Bureau of Meteorology hereby assumes all responsibility when it comes to predicting and reporting the weather in the Micronation of Contendus Loci until they have a person to take over the meteorological duties of Contendus Loci.

Signed: Mark Ingalls,President, Republic of Markland

I, Sir James, agree to this treaty and all its rules/duties

History

The President of Markland declared a small part of Dyess AFB, TX as his own sovereign nation. This was the President's first land claims. This attempt in 2008 ultimately failed when his friend claimed more than half the land. They then went too war and this ended both micronations.

In April of 2009 the President claimed portions of Kennewick, WA as his own sovereign nation called the Ingalls Empire. This attempt, like the one in 2008 also failed, only this time it was due to a lack of knowledge about establishing a micronation.

On 1 January 2010 President Mark Ingalls declared the Republic of Markland as its own sovereign nation.

On 4 January 2010 President Mark Ingalls created a Bureau of Defense (see Federal Act 1B) because he was worried that the Republic would be called in to help defend their 2 allies that are members of the GAMA during the ASEA Claiming Conflict. This conflict, however, was resolved the following day without a declaration of war.

On 2 September 2010 after several months of inactivity, President Mark Ingalls announced that there will come large changes in the lands claimed by the Republic. This is in an effort to better control the sovereign claims of the Republic. The President sees the task of attempting to gain control of large portions of Washington, Oregon, Texas, and Alaska as too big for the current condition of the Republic. The Republic will also establish embassies with its foreign allies.

On 5 September 2010 the Bureau of Meteorology issued their first weather alert, a Thunderstorm Watch for the Southland Province. The remnants Tropical Depression Ten were forecasted to affect the province.
