The Republic of Wendatia,(/, /) is a micronation located in Southeastern Michigan. It is completely surrounded by the United States. Its capital is Avienta. Wendatian territories date back to 2017-2018, however was never really active until mid-2020. It is currently one of the more well known micronations within the state of Michigan.
The official name comes from the Wendat people, a Native American people group that had settled in the area before European explorers, and with the suffix "-ia", it could translate to "Land of Wendat". Alternative spellings of Wendat include "Wyandot" and "Wyandotte".
Micronations Before Wendatia
In the 2017-2018 range, Jonas Rhymer created Acnaiva, sharing the same name as his former NationStates account. It was fairly inactive, without much effort put into it. It was silently dissolved around mid 2018.
Huronese Republic (Old)
During late 2019 and early 2020, Jonas Rhymer, TYWUURM, and a few other members of a discord server known as "The Chaos School" made an inside joke known as the "Huronese Republic". It was originally a political simulation, however it never really took off, and went defunct around April 2020.
After Jonas Rhymer watched a video about MicroCon 2019, Wendatia was founded on July 27, 2020, as the Huronese Republic, with the reason being “Cuz i have nothing to do at 5 am.” It was declared on a discord server known as the "Diarchy of Mapping", in their politics channel. The claims originally expanded the entire thumb of Michigan, however actual judicial control was limited to Jonas Rhymer’s backyard. The first president's name is unknown, but they are referred to as "TYWUURM", as it is their discord username. The presidents during the time it was called the Huronese Republic were TYWUURM, Andre Carnerio, Leon Montan, and Jonas Rhymer.
Transition to Wendatia
On 9 September 2020, the nation's name was changed to Wendat, and the disputed claims were receded. Eventually, a few days later, the country was renamed "Wendatia", due to confusion with Wegmat. Jonas Rhymer officially ratified the Constitution of Wendatia on September 30, 2020. Wendatia officially recognized Artsakh as independent on 28 September 2020. On 5 October 2020, James Bornstein became a supreme judge. On 10 October 2020, Wendatia became an observer state of the Cupertino Alliance, which was later revoked.
The state of Pradera (Now Mashkode) was admitted to the Republic on 21 October 2020. On the 1st of November, the government was reorganized. This replaced the role of Prime Minister with Deputy President, which had the role of assisting the president and running the Congressional House. (Now National Assembly) On 7 November 2020, the first congressional elections began. This period is notable for the government's relative inactivity.
Wendatia hosted their first elections in over 2 months on 28 November 2020, with the Wendatian Workers Party in the lead. This resulted in Hunt Powell and Sean Dunkerque being elected to the Congressional House. On 1 December 2020, the first deputy elections occurred, with Leah Cohen replacing TYWUURM as deputy president. This also saw a spike in activity in Wendatia. On 12 December 2020, the Ministry of Motorways (Now Ministry of Transportation) was established.
A new constitution was completed and voted in on 8 February 2021, renaming the country to the Co-operative Republic of Wendatia. As a result, new elections were hosted, with the Democratic Party of Wendatia winning the majority of seats within the National Assembly. North Pradera eventually became independent on 26 March 2021, as the Praderan Republic. Within Late May to Early June 2021, the first Presidential Election in Wendatia since September 2020, resulting in Jonas Rhymer being re-elected. During the election, the decline of ¡Democracia! - People's Front, the former ruling party had begun, as the popularity of the Green Party of Wendatia had grown.
