History

Pre-Establishment Era (????-2017)

Long before the Europeans colonized America and before Saspearian was established, the area that Saspearian is located in was inhabited by Native Americans. The land eventually became part of the Spanish Empire, then the first Mexican Empire would take control of what is now modern-day Saspearian. In the 19th century Texas wanted to become a country, and rebelled against Mexico in what is known as the Texan Revolution. Texas eventually emerged as the victor in the conflict and became known as the Republic of Texas for nearly a decade. Then The United States of America annexed Texas, and Texas became a state. The land became apart of the Confederacy during the American Civil War after the civil war ended the land was given back to America. In 2017 the land became a part of Saspearian ending the Pre-Establishment Era.

Establishment Era (2017)

In the early afternoon of Friday, October 20, 2017, all of the founding fathers signed the Saspearian Declaration of Independence. Later that same day at around 5:00-7:00 PM (CST) the nation of Saspearian declared Independence from the United States of America. Soon after that Emperor Anthony I was inaugurated as the leader of this new country, making him the first Emperor of Saspearian (EOS). These were important events to the history of Saspearian and would significantly shape the future of the nation.

Emperor Anthony I Era (2017-present)

This era is defined as starting after Emperor Anthony I was inaugurated to present-day Saspearian. Throughout this period, Saspearian got many allies and saw the dissolution of other micronations. The country as a whole got involved in the community by joining organizations such as the Micronational Assembly and the United Micronations on Google+. When Astain was kicked out of the MA, Emperor Anthony I was outraged by the feedback that Astain was receiving from certain members of the community. Saspearian also was kicked out of the Micronational Assembly, due to the small land of the Micronation being against the rules. Examples of allies include Astain, Yaskiule and the Carthian Empire, during this period Saspearian was declared war by the Ratican Empire, only a few days later Ratica called to end the war due to the distance of New York and Texas, then on 29 May 2018 there was a treaty signed which affectingly ended the Ratican-Saspearian War. Another notable event that happened at relatively the same time is the first expansion, which was Saspearian expanding its land for the first time in desires to start an industry, boost economic development and development in general within the country.

Saspearian supposedly annexed land again in Washington which would be known as Renkema colony in August 2019, named after the third citizen Xander Renkema who was later founded out to be Nicolas Miranda of The Autonomous Province of Senland. There was a treaty signed that also wasn't valid known as the Sedro-Woolley Accords. These series of events were known as the Xander Renkema Incident. On 3 November 2019, the Saspearian Flag Contest which started in March of the same year received enough submissions for the contest to end. The reason due to the longevity of the contest was because of the lack of submissions that delayed the last day to submit to the contest was said to have been on 1 November 2019, even though it had to of been no later than October 31 of that same year. On 14 March 2020 Saspearian declared a Public Health Emergency after two cases of COVID-19 were reported nearby it's borders.[2] The Saspearian Coat of Arms Contest begun on 24 Apri 2020, with the purpose of creating Saspearian's Coat of Arms, the contest concluded on 29 May 2020.
