The Republic of New Elmhurst is a micronation located in North-Western Massachusetts. It is the successor state to the United Kingdom of New Elmhurst.

History

The Tsardom of New Elmhurst is considered to be the Successor state to the short lived "State of New Elmhurst". It remained an independent state for three years, before being annexed by the Sorrenian Federation.The Tsar abdicated, putting Eren Lewis in power. After a few months, Michael Thomas Brazeau left New Elmhurst. In early autumn, New Elmhurst became a Kingdom, with Joseph Kennedy as King, and Eren Lewis as Governor General.

Union with 9th Grade

On 11 December, Lewis, being leader of New Elmhurst and Absolute Ruler of the 9th Grade, decided to merge the two states, forming the United Kingdom of New Elmhurst and the 9th Grade, shortened to UKNE.

Occupation of Berghav

In late March, Sean, a student that went to the same school as Eren Lewis formed an independent Micronation, the Kingdom of Berghav. Noticing that most of its citizens were also citizens of New Elmhurst, Lewis decided that he would attempt to pull the new state into New Elmhurst. After S. refused unification, Lewis, with the permission of the King, declared war on Berghav. The war was fought completely with boffers, or foam weapons. The New Elmhurstian forces for a majority of the occupation were armed with swords, though spears and axes stolen from the Berghavian forces were used later. The Berghavian forces had swords, axes, and spears. The New Elmhurstian forces defeated and occupied the Berghavians.

Threat of Civil War

In June 2015, dissent against the Government and distaste for King Joseph was growing. With Revolutionary forces reforming in Berghav and a small group of Spiralists organising against the Government, the threat of civil war was close. With summer break, the Spiralists and other internal forces abandoned the idea of Revolution. The Berghavians, however, managed to occupy a large amount of their formal territory, declaring their independence.

Military takeover

In early August, the monarchy was dissolved in favor of a Military Government. The king stepped down and was made Vice President of a new military Junta, led by the President, Eren Scott..

Dissolution

On the 23rd of December, 2015, the Republic of New Elmhurst was dissolved.

Government

New Elmhurst is run by a military dictatorship. The President holds complete control over the entirety of the state, and has an advisory group known as the Junta Command Council. The Junta Command Council is consisted of generals and high ranking officers in the military, with the General of the Army (Currently Eren Scott) leading the Junta as President. The President then chooses a General in the Junta to serve as Vice President of the Junta. The President and Vice President then collaborate to form a cabinet, with different ministers being appointed. The ministers in the government work with the President on different affairs and issues, from the economy, to defense. The President is not an elected official. He is chosen by the Junta if the current President is to resign or step down from the position. While President Scott took power through a military coup, he set the system up afterwords. The Judicial Council is created by the President to handle the courts. The court system is split into different courts. The National Court is led by the President, who serves as Supreme Judge. The different territories then have Territorial Courts, and finally different cities and towns have city and town councils.
