Wamong is a self-proclaimed sovereign state and independence movement located in North-Western Pennsylvania in the United States. It was proclaimed on 15 February 2018. It is an observer state of the Grand Unified Micronational and a member of the Micronational Assembly. It has since split into two separate governments due to a coup on 10 June 2021, which has led to a crisis.
Wamong's name comes from the fact that it's founder, Harold Duighan, was reading through an almanac, and noticed that none of the nations mentioned in it had a name that started with the letter "W". Thus, Harold wished to find a solution to this, and since he was extremely interested in politics and wished to create his own country so he could solve the world's problems, he chose to found the nation of Wamong.
Foundation and Republican Era (2018)
The nation of Wamong was declared on 15 February 2018 after Harold Duighan, the nation's founder, read an almanac, which included a section listing the names of the world's countries, which were included in alphabetical order. He noticed there were no nations that started with the letter "W", so he decided that he wished to change that. At the time, he also wished to solve the world's problems by creating his own government and instituting his own solutions, as well, so he wanted to create his own nation. Thus, Wamong was born. At the time, he was also interested in micronations such as Sealand and Molossia, and wanted to emulate what they did, as well. This all occurred when Harold was in the 6th grade when he was around 12 years old. Harold thus began designing his own flag while he was in class at school, and he began preparing for his new nation to become a real country that was recognized by the UN. He even held elections and declared himself the President of Wamong, and presented his declaration of independence to his mother. However, soon, the nation began to slow down in development and stagnate.
Stagnant Period (2018-2021)
The nation did not develop much besides a flag and his declaration of independence. He was soon laughed away by his parents, who saw his nation as just him being a little kid and using his imagination. The nation quickly disappeared into inactivity as the years went by, as he did not know what to do with it, and he had more pressing personal matters to attend to. However, he still wished for his nation to grow and develop, and eventually reach full independence.
At that time, Harold engaged in an aggressive foreign policy by invading several nations such as Mushroomia, (at the time known as Mossia), and the United States in a series of undeclared wars. He was successful in all of these attempts, and it helped keep his nation afloat for the time being throughout the so-called Stagnant Period. The invasion of Mushroomia was perhaps the largest of these wars, as it spanned several months where Harold slowly made incursions into the nation over the course of several months, especially during the so-called Backyard Campaign, which began on 30 July 2018.
Return from Inactivity
The nation quickly returned from inactivity after the Great States of O'Duighan collapsed on 2 March 2021. This left Wamong as the only remaining micronation that Harold ruled, save for the Holy Empire of Jesus, though that nation would be handed over to Vincent I of Arthuria later on. Wamong, which had been left mostly inactive, though still intact for all those years, was suddenly brought out of inactivity and was being developed for a new era of prosperity. The country then adopted Maoist Communism, and became a one-party state after the Working People's Duighanist Party seized power on 10 March 2021. This began the Communist Era.
Communist Era (2021)
Wamong became a Communist state on 10 March 2021, and began to modernize greatly. It adopted a new constitution, changed its name, changed its flag, and adopted an emblem. It began growing its culture and developing a language, and seemed to be growing immensely. It also set up an alliance of puppet states to control, so it could grow its influence. However, this growth lost steam. It soon began to stagnate once more, had an economic crisis, and even began hurting its own relations due to its association with Maoism. The nation went to war over the so called "Northwestern Region", though no fighting actually occurred, and even managed to join the GUM as an observer state. Eventually, on 21 May 2021, Communism ended after the WPDP dropped its support of Communism and the nation became a Socialist State. It then became a Crowned Republic, with Harold Duighan becoming the Doge of Wamong. However, the Communist constitution still remains in force, so Communism has not officially ended yet, thus the Communist Era continues.
Wamong gradually turned into a heavily religious project around the tail end of the Communist Era, when Harold began becoming increasingly religious and obsessed with God. He soon made it his goal to recreate Eden, the paradise made by God in the Bible. He felt that society had failed and had become infested what he believes to be the "Atheistic-Satanistic-Demonic Axis", which have aims to kill of Christianity and ensure the world is thrown into chaos. He then began attempting to increasingly enforce religious values into Wamong and turn it into a Christian Theocracy. Wamong itself was heavily based around Christian values even before this, however, though it was not enforced as much, due to it being mostly inactive for a long time.
Since then, Wamong has began to reform itself so it can modernize and remove itself from the days of authoritarian Communism and Maoism. It has since become a One-party Socialist Crowned Republic, though it has begun to become less authoritarian and has managed to please those who condemned it in the past. The constitution of Wamong is also being amended, though it has not been finished as of currently, thus the Communist constitution remains in force.

Law and Order
The nation has no police force, instead, the military serves as the main police force for the nation. The People's Tribunal is the main court in the nation. The People's Tribunal is tasked with trying and charging those who commit crimes. Such crimes consist of treason against the government, such as planning a coup, or committing murder and such. The nation does not have the death penalty, so those who are tried may either be deported and have their citizenship revoked, be imprisoned, or be refused certain benefits given by the government.
The nation has very few foreign relations with any nations. Currently, the nation recognizes all member states and observer states in the U.N., all members and observers in it's alliance called the People's Protection Pact, and the Arthurian Empire, it's closest ally. It has no diplomatic missions to any U.N.-recognized nations, however, there are plans to create an embassy to the United States of America. Its foreign relations began around 2 March 2021, when the government began building relations with nations that were associated with the former government of O'Duighan. However, most of the nations associated with O'Duighan collapsed, such as the Seabourgian Commonwealth, which fell apart on 8 April. Another nation, known as the Republic of Manitoba, collapsed in May due to the government being couped. The nation has mostly maintained relations with the Arthurian Empire and the Kingdom of Begon, as they are closely associated with Wamong due to the O'Duighan Civil War. Diplomatic missions are also being prepared with U.N.-recognized nations in preparation for the nation's eventual planned independence in 2029.

The military of Wamong consists of the Democratic Army of Wamong, though it is known by its unofficial name, the Wamong Military, which was used as the name of the Wamongian military, as it lacked an official name for most of its history. The DRW was formed on the country's founding on 15 February 2018, and consisted of 1 soldier. It has since grown to have around 5 soldiers, with 2 of those soldiers being in active duty, and the rest are in reserve. The military was briefly replaced by the People's Red Army of Wamong due to the Communists seeing the DRW as a disorganized, weak mess, so they decided to attempt to make their own military. However, the Communist regime fell on 3 June 2021, and the military took over and reestablished the DRW.

Currently, there is not much literature being written in Wamong. The only types of written media in Wamong consist of the nation's only newspaper, Wamong Communal News. However, there is the Principles of Duighanism, a small document that states the ideals of the Duighanist ideology. However, Wamong is a nation that promotes literature and reading. The most popular books in the nation as of now are War of the Worlds and Quotations from Chairman Mao Zedong, which is one of Harold Duighan's favorite books.
The nation lacks much in media, besides the nation's newspaper, Wamong Communal News. However, there are plans to grow the media output by branching out into radio broadcasts, and eventually television. The nation has a game development company that develops video games in the nation. It is the only company that does this.
Wamong's flag consists of a tricolor, which has a blue bar on the right, a white bar in the middle, and a purple bar on the left. The flag then has a red star in the center. The blue symbolizes intelligence, the white symbolizes purity and peace, and the purple symbolizes Christ and religion. These colors are meant to symbolize some of the basic values of Duighanism, the nation's ideology. The red star symbolizes Socialism.
The national emblem consists of a laurel with a red star in the center, and the red star is in the center of a sun. The laurels symbolize the people and the land of Wamong, the red star symbolizes Socialism, and the Sun symbolizes the Heavens, and God himself. Once again, the emblem was made symbolize the basic values of Duighanism. The ideology of Duighanism is a central part of Wamongian culture. Many of the national symbols and media distributed by Wamong are made to promote or symbolize the basic principles and values of Duighanist ideology as a whole.
The nation also promotes a sense of Nationalism as well, especially with propaganda. Nationalism was heavily pushed after the Communists took power and began instituting "De-Americanization" policies. The Duighanish language was promoted by using it in propaganda, the Duighan National Calendar was made the official calendar, and the nation even adopted Duighan National Time, the nation's own official time zone, which is set at UTC -3:50. The government wanted to create a separate identity for those who are citizens of Wamong, in order to prepare and create their own independence movement, so that the nation can finally separate from the United States fully.
Wamong is a country that consists of mostly Christians, which make up about 62.5% of the population. Christianity is also the state-sponsored religion in Wamong, as it is promoted heavily by the ruling party, the Working People's Duighanist Party. However, the Christian majority is divided up into three groups, the Methodists, the Roman Catholics, and Nondenominational Christians. There is also a large minority of Atheist/Unaffiliated citizens, which makes up 37.5% of the population. This minority began appearing around 2020, and has since been slowly growing, though it began to shrink around 2021. The Atheist minority has also clashed with majority Christians, though this has been only minor.

The dominant ethnic group in Wamong are White Americans. For most of Wamong's history between 2018-2020, the country was entirely homogenous, consisting of solely White Americans. It was not until 2020 that another ethnic group, which consisted of non-human animals, specifically Cats, that the country was no longer homogenous. Currently, Cats make up 37.5% of the population, whilst White Americans make up 62.5% of the population.
Wamong has no education system, or any schools whatsoever. However, most citizens are educated to some degree. Most citizens have either a high school education, or have been in college. Most citizens are literate, and can write. However, 37.5% of Wamongian citizens cannot read, write, and have never received any education. This is only contained in the Cat ethnic group in Wamong, however.
Most citizens speak English, as that is one of the official languages in the nation. However, Duighanish is also spoken by 12.5% of the population, and it is also an official language. However, 37.5% of citizens speak in only meows, which is also contained solely in the Cat ethnic group. This language has been named Meowspeak, however, it is not recognized by the government as a language, as it is spoken solely by the non-human Cats.
Wamong is one of the poorest nations in the world, with a Gross Domestic Product of only $209, and a GDP per capita of only $26. It's economic system for over 2 years was what has since been called a "Reliance Economy", which in simple terms is where a nation relies solely on foreign aid to supply the economy. From its foundation in February 2018 to July 2020, this was the economic system Wamong had in place, and helped to breed economic success into the country. However, after the government spent money attempting to acquire computers and other goods, all of their money was used up, and the economy collapsed. The GDP was $600 in June, and the nation also had a GDP per capita of $150 in June 2020, just above Somalia's GDP per capita, but then that all came crashing down in July 2020, where the economy went to $0. This led to economic collapse, which the nation has never recovered from.
Since then, the economy has made a small rebound, but the country still remains poorer than ever. There have also since been attempts to revitalize the economy by attempting to develop a booming consumer industry, which has led to minor progress, though no actual consumer products have been made, as the government still sits at the drawing board. The country still relies solely on foreign aid, though the government also wishes to free itself from relying on such things, so it can become economically independent.
The government has planned several projects and formed several companies that are tasked with developing and finishing several projects that are intended to boost economic activity. It is hoped that when these projects are finished that the economy will suddenly revive itself and get out of the slump it is in. These projects are currently still under wraps, and not much is known about them on the outside, as the government wishes to keep them secret.
Currently, the country has a few companies, though these are all state-owned:
Wamong State Media
Wamong Communal News (owned by Wamong State Media)
Wamong State Television
Wamong National Radio (owned by Wamong State Media)
Current Development Projects
Mongball - A comic series planned to be released later in July 2021.
MapWars - A show planned to be released in July 2021.
Game Project 1 - A planned video game intended to be released in late August 2021.
