Trasona, known as the Trasenic Realm when referring to all territories held by Trasona, was a self-declared sovereign state, commonly referred to as a micronation by outside observers due to the lack of recognition from any United Nations member states. It was located primarily in Florida, but had a presence across the southern United States. It was a member of the South Atlantic Sector. Trasona was established on 1 November 2021, beginning the "Blue November." Trasona formally dissolved on 15 October 2022, less than a month from its first independence day.
On 1 November 2021, Trasona was founded in Central Florida, USA, as the State of Mensenberg. It was a de facto military dictatorship, led by the Grand Marshal of the Mensenberg Volksleger, the armed forces of then-Mensenberg. A period of growth and positive events occurred across November 2021 that eventually became referred to as the Blauwe Dertig, or the Blue November, referencing one of the national colours of Mensenberg. The head of government during the First Republic was the Premier, who at this point had much greater power than the Premier of the Second Republic, and along with the stronger Volksraad and the unstable Amicus meus alliance between the third-positionist National Revolutionary Front and socialist Radical Party created to prevent the rise of liberalism in Mensenberg, caused a period of inactivity in the Government and amongst the population that ended after the appointment of António Fernandez as Premier and the creation of the Mensisch State Charter.
On 6 February, the Fernandez Cabinet took office, which marked a shift to stronger Hertog's role in politics, giving the Hertog full legislative initiative and only needing the Volksraad's support for few things. The government quickly became more active, but was quite unstable, going through 4 Premiers, 2 Governments and one coup attempt in a period of 47 days from 6 February to 25 March. On 25 March, the government stabilised under the interim Premiership of Hunt Powell, and the addition of two more counties and a population growth of nearly 50% within a week. Small changes occurred in mid-to-late March 2022, including slightly more democratic reforms and a modeling of the government of the Dutch Republic. The first elections since the Amicus meus era occurred on 1–2 April.
Coup and installation of Monarchy
In the light of Charles Madgett’s election as President of Trasona, top military commanders including Grand Marshal Sean Dunkerque and Colonels Alexander Bup and Thomas Jacobs overthrew the Second Republic and installed a military junta on 31 April. The junta ruled for seven days before announcing the installation of a monarchy under Alexandre Olivier as King Alexandre I. The junta was disbanded, but its members continued to rule in the Privy Council and all bills were passed by said Council. A legislature was soon added known as the House of Magnates, that consisted of nobles and landed gentry from across the country to decentralise the lawmaking process.
After a few months of rule, Dunkerque—then chief magistrate of the court—became disillusioned with the dictatorship and founded the Renewal of the Crown party to advocate for increased democracy. Several bills passed the now Renewal-controlled House of Magnates that limited the power of the Magnates, expanded voting rights, and created the House of Commons, a democratically elected body. The new party was given a majority in the new House of Commons in a landslide, and Dunkerque replaced Jacobs as Prime Minister.
On 26 September 2022, Dunkerque announced his resignation from the premiership effective 1 October. On 3 October 2022, in an argument with Thomas I, Prince of Crainmore, Sean Dunkerque banned Jacobs from the Trasona discord server, and in the following private conversation, Crainmore seceded from Trasona, rather than be dissolved as a county. Later that, Jacobs got onto his alternate account and began to spam fascist material in the server, then proceeded to leave the server.
Trasona has adopted a largely American culture, influenced by Irish immigrants across the country. Most of Trasona follows American traditions, whereas New Roscam is mostly Irish, as it is an enclave of Ireland, in which Irish is a Recognised Minority Language.

|Blue November||1 November 2021 - 30 November 2021||30 days||Trasona seized its territories of Nassau and Kienebosch from the United States, and rapidly expanded its population. The era ended with the accession of Kienebosch and was immediately followed by a major slowing down of progress.|
The Great Decline
|1 December 2021 - 5 February 2022||67 days||Blue November was immediately followed by the decline of the First Republic. This was mostly caused by the slowdown after the first Volksraad election and the lack of engagement by the then-Grand Marshal in the legislative system. Many notable reforms such as the State Charter and the naming of Antonio Belicoso as Premier happened during this era, leading to bright prospects for the official Second Republic.||Pontunia-Ocean States War|
|6 February - 22 March||44 days||The Second Republic officially began with the opening of the Fernandez Cabinet, a small cabinet intended on being able to function quickly and act more as a check on the Hertog than the main legislative or executive body. The Mensen State Charter granted the Hertog near-unlimited legislative and executive power, thus the name Hertogsrijk (Hertog's State).||Wickham War|
St. Patrick's Day Coup
|Pax Montopulica||22 March - 30 April 2022||39 days||Coming from President Sean Dunkerque's "Pax Montopulica" speech on 25 March 2022, this era began after the departure of Joshua Stoddard from the micronational community. Most of the old institutions from the Second Republic were maintained, but with an increase in democracy and community interaction in government, specifically taking influence from the Dutch Republic. Notably, the Wickham War ended soon after the beginning of this era with an unconditional surrender from Pinang and undisputed Trasonan ownership of Wickham, as well as the addition of New Waterloo and New Roscam. O'Lachtna made it a goal to go into any conflicts that were during this period. This era ended with the Carolusian Revolt.||Carolusian Revolt|
|Military Monarchy||30 April 2022 - 9 July||70 days||After the Carolusian Revolt, a military junta, consisting of a President Thomas Jacobs, Grand Marshal Sean Dunkerque, and Colonel 'Bup'.

This era ended on 9 July when military rule unofficially ended and the Silent Revolution began.|
|Silent Revolution||9 July 2022 – present||98 days||This era began with the founding of Renewal of the Crown and informal end of military rule on 9 July, with the House of Magnates passing the Organic Law on Parliament and creating the House of Commons the next day.
