History

Main article: History of the Royal reformed States of America

In March and April of 2009, HE King Wilary I was becoming increasingly unhappy at the United States. The nation was in, in his opinion, a useless and costly war, and the economy was not doing well. Services were being cut and people were being laid off. He was annoyed at the rate at which the US Congress could pass laws to help the nation, and how unhelpful the laws were when passed. Sometime in April 2009, King Wilary came across Sealand in a Wikipedia article. He then went and researched out the idea of micronations and eventualy decided to start his own.

Main article: Symbols of the Royal reformed States of America

Language

Main article: Rsainian Language

Rsainian is a language currently in development. It was invented by His Excellency King Wilary the First of the Royal reformed States of America. It is an official language of the RrSA and is overseen by the Royal reformed Department of the People. It is a language that is based off of English. Rsainian replaces English letters with the letters in the Rsainian alphabet.

Alphabet

All letters were obtained by spelling out the names of the letters by their sounds. "C", for example, sounds like "s" and "e", as in "see". "E" is the only letter that contains just itself, "e" sounds like "ee". Consecutive English letters also have their own letters. It is gained by taking "dubul", which sounds like "double", and adding the English letter. So two t's ("tt") is: dubult. There is no double "k", it is replaced by double "c".

Spelling

All words are taken from English, then each English letter is replaced by the corresponding Rsainian letter. That is how the words are created. Most words are two or more times longer than the origional word in English, so it takes longer to write.
