The Socialist Commonwealth of Uskor is a micronation located in Australia. Formerly known as the Commonwealth of Zealandia, Kingdom of Zealandia. and Federal Republic of Zealandia, the state reformed to become a feminist and socialist state under the leadership of Charlotte Lindström.
The Kingdom of Zealandia was founded on 28 February 2010. The early years of the kingdom were dominated by the Progressive Party (SDPZ), under Zealandia's first Prime Minister; Robert Kennedy.
On 28 December 2010, Sebastian Linden led the Social Democratic Party to its biggest electoral victory.
The Kingdom was reformed into a Grand Duchy on 5 January 2011 and soon after joined in a union with the Principality of Eleytheria which effectively ended with the succession of Eleytheria from the Union. The Kingdom reformed from a Grand Duchy back to a Kingdom on 21 February 2011.
On 22 February 2011 the Kingdom was battered by a second earthquake which caused major Damage to Denton and the other provinces located around Christchurch New Zealand, With some citizens narrowly escaping injury or death both in Christchurch City Center and in the Suburbs of Christchurch.
On 1 December 2011 Joseph Puglisi led the then Best Party of Zealandia to electoral victory, which was the first time an openly socialist party had won.
Between 4-8 February 2012 a period of civil conflict took place with a break away nation (Republic of Zealandia) being formed then absorbed by the Zealandia which resulted in the establishment of the office of President of Zealandia.
On 14 May 2012 politicians within Zealandia voted to accept the Nemkhav Federation Stability Mission in Zealandia (Zealandian: Nemkawðamtøk Stabulteit Misjon i Zålandien, Swedish: Nemkav Förbunds Stabilitet Mission i Zeelandien abbreviated: NFSM or NðSM)after it was proposed by former Zealandian Prime Minister and at the time current Prime Minister of the Nemkhav Federation Marka Mejakhansk and Nemkhav President Alex Whitmarsh in an effort to repair Zealandia's constitutional status.
Tensions rose between the Zealandian Parliamentarians and Queen Astrid and Nemkhav Foreign Minister J.J Hakimoto that led to Astrid removing the mission during the late night of May 27 2012, to which an international committee was held on the Zealandian constitution afterwards with the subsequent amendment being approved in a referendum on 9 June 2012.
On 1 August 2012 Winter Revolution occurred sparking the declaration of the Federal Republic of Zealandia over the Kingdom.
The Federal Republic was disposed of in a coup held on 16 February 2013, this was followed by the Red April Revolution in April 2016.
Later in early 2017, a refrendum was held in Zealandia officially changing its name to the Socialist Commonwealth of Uskor.

Uskor was a member of the Organisation of Active Micronations until the end of that organisation's lifespan, in which Charlotte Lindstrom was its final secretary-general.
However, when the GUM was re-launched in mid-2016, with a new Charter, Uskor rejoined the organization. Uskor was also a member of Syolian Union until October 2012, but is otherwise generally unaligned.
