Rhys' Island, officially known as Rhys' Island and Her Associated Territories, known as Rhysland when referring to the mainland, is a self-proclaimed dependent territory in the River Blackwater and Steeple Creek, both being in Essex, United Kingdom, it was discovered by Joseph Wye in early 2017, it was based on a small, sandy island with a damp terrain, it is closest to Steeple, a nearby village that borders the river.

The territory is split into 2 different counties, Flustenborough and Rottshire.

There is a province in Rottshire (one of the three counties of the territory), called Rottland, just off the coast of Maldon, it has an estimated population of 2. There is also an archipelago off the coast of Comino in Malta, called The Southern Victoria Islands, which are in the Rhittish Realm. It is controlled by the Maltese government, it has a confirmed population of 0.

Autonomy

As for autonomy, RIAHAT is in the United Kingdom's jurisdiction, councillor of the archipelago is mostly an honourary title but does hold some power both in parliament and independently. Steeple council mainly look after the archipelago, the territory is partially autonomous, when Joseph discovered the island, he quoted; "As the discoverer of this island, I declare that Rhysland shall land in UK jurisdiction, and shall be controlled almost completely by the nation."

Recognition

As of 2017, Rhys' Island (AHAT) has not been recognised officially, however some British people have acknowledged this territory's existence, but not necessarily along with it's name.

Politics

Politics in Rhys' Island (AHAT are left-wing, this is because the majority of Rhysislanders are liberal, communist etc. As of 2017 there are no documented Rhysislanders that are right-wing.

RIAHAT had 3 main parties, the Red Bloom Party (RBP), an Eco-socialist party lead by Joseph Wye, the Democratic Socialist Party (DSP), a Centre-left party lead by Charles Hague, finally, the Communist Frontier, a Far-left Communist party that unfortunately lost its only seat due to the leader, Jacob Wye, resigning.

The political party that governed Rhys' Island from 12 May 2017 - 1 September 2017 was the Red Bloom Party with 3 out of 5 seats in the Parliament of Rhysland, and 2 out of 3 seats in the Rottland Parliament

Rhys' Island abandoned their party system due to it being too "Dysfunctional".

The territory now has a lord protector in charge, Joseph Wye, who administrates and takes care of Rhys' Island.
