History

The KOS was formed as a vassal of Secundomia on January 26th, 2010, because Parker I felt he was losing power of his republic, Secundomia. So he created an absolute monarchy. He did not want to leave Secundomia, however, so the KOS remained a vassal. It was originally founded only with the Territory of Iceia. Iceia consisted of all the ice in the Arctic ocean. Parker I soon expanded to Southern Pluto (Southern Plutopia), and Mercury. Soon Northland (A capital area consisting of the North pole and an area 40 feet radius around it), and Ida (243 Ida, an asteroid in the Kiuper belt) were claimed. Mercury was split into North Mercury and South Mercury. The Duchy of Charcot was formed out of Charcot Island, Antarctica. Sterling joined the AMU, and shortly after dissolved all Extraterrestrial and Antarctic claims, and moved the entire kingdom to Charcot. After the Kingdom of Sterling became inactive and unused, the King of Sterling abdicated, and formed the Colony of Sterling under the Republic of Secundomia. Parker I was assigned as protector of the colony. J became protector of the colony after him, as appointed by the President. Almost a year after J moved away from Secundomia, Parker I founded the Republic of Sterling on June 14, 2012.
