City of Bryan
The City of Bryan was formed in 1840 by John A. Bryan, and named for him. It was incorporated as a village in 1841, and reincorporated as a city in 1941. Williams County was originally part of Defiance County, with Defiance as the county seat. The area was later split into Williams and Defiance counties. Bryan was named the seat for the new county, but not without conflict; the village of Montpelier was considered a more centralized location. The people of Montpelier petitioned the state legislature, but in the end Bryan was named county seat because of its greater industrial and commercial importance and because of its higher population. To this day, many people still argue about the state's decision and a rivalry of sorts remains between the two communities. In 2018 Bryania ceded from Williams County, claiming the City of Bryan as part of the Kingdom.
Kingdom of Bryania
The West Unity War
On 5 February 2019 Bryania declared war on the Kingdom of Nelm. The war lasted for two days and as a result, southern West Unity was puppeted by Bryania. This was ultimately unsuccessful. The conflict came to an end with Bryania signing the Treaty of . War was soon declared on another micronation, The Republic State Of Zenland.
Socialist Republic of Bryania
On 1 April 2019, a communist revolution overthrew the government and seized control of Bryania, transforming the Kingdom into the Socialist Republic of Bryania. Minister Nathaly became head of state and outlawed elections. He had almost full control because Bryania was a more independent puppet of The Communist State Of Hillsdale. But on 24 June 2019, a Republican uprising overthrew the communist government.
Federation of Bryania
On June 25, 2019, the day after the Republican uprising, a new government was formed. They passed the Milita Act. See Acts Of Bryania.
A strip of Williams County north of Bryan was originally part of a conflict, the Toledo War, between the states of Ohio and Michigan. Both states claimed the Toledo Strip, which was named for the port city of Toledo at its eastern end. The conflict was eventually resolved in favor of Ohio, with Michigan being compensated with what is now the western Upper Peninsula. This conflict and its "unfinished war goals" was the reason for Bryania's war with the Kingdom of Nelm.
Bryania has declared its currency to be the "Bryania Dollar", which it deems to be at parity with the U.S. dollar. Several dozen different coins have been made since 2018 in one form. Given Bryania's small population, physical inaccessibility, and lack of a real economy, it is unlikely that these coins were ever intended for use as circulating currency. Most were produced using paper.
