The term 'Blepia' comes from the Blep, an act in which a cat sticks out its tongue for long periods of time, usually without knowing.
Origins Blepia first started as a small Discord community, The Blep Society, on 5 May 2017, known at that time as Member's Server (not after the members of the server, but after Memberry). All members of the server from this time period, excluding Memberry, later left.
First Election Memberry, seeing opportunity in the growing server for a democratic model of government, held elections on the 20th of May. Most knowledge about this election is lost to history, and the only known detail of this election was that it resulted in a member called FioLee becoming the first Prime Minister of Member's Server. They were not very active, and on the 29th of May Memberry initiated a referendum to rename the server in hopes of raising activity. The winning candidate was 'The Blep Society'.
Due to the inactivity of Prime Minister Basque, Memberry called a new election on the 2nd of June. Like the first election, nothing is known of it except the Prime Minister after the election, Kirby1006. On the fifth of June, Kirby announced a reform transforming the server into a military state.
Above is the Kirby Declaration, the announcement made by Kirby1006 at the start of his military reforms. These reforms included the creation of approximately ten roles, each with military-related names.
