Stratton, formally known as the Kingdom of Stratton, is a Constitutional Monarchy in the Dallas, Texas region. The nation is a self-declared nation, claiming 66 acres in Northeast Texas, as well as 200 acres in Germany. Stratton was established on the 30th of May 2019, as a means of providing a monarchist nation in North Texas, among other reasons. The nation holds several cultures including Irish, Italian, Scottish, and Greek.
The name Stratton is an alternate spelling of Straiton, the family name of the king's ancestor who immigrated to America from Scotland. The two houses that form the royal family , House Neal and House Patros, are similarly derived from old family surnames.
Vincent Patros and Marguret Neal-Patros established the nation after Vincent (then known as Tyler Hibler) served with the Commonwealth of Dracul in their Department of State. On May 30, 2019, the kingdom was founded partially on impulse and part as a protest against the many issues with democracy as it is practiced in America.
