Republic of Ultamiya Republic of Pimpville

As the two most powerful nations of the Steel Valley sector, the Republic of Ultamiya and the Republic of Pimpville went through much turmoil and much peace in their two-and-a-half-year history of relations. Today, Pimpville remains a sovereign nation.

First four months

The Republic of Pimpville was founded on October 20th, 2010 by current President Shane King and his Vice President Andrew Chuba. Immediately declaring war on Ultamiya, the two nations were embroiled in a four month long cold war in which Ultamiya got its first real diplomatic test.

On December 6th, Ultamian president David Salapa presented King with a peace treaty which he and his vice declined.[1] However, the treaty was later accepted on February 14th.
The February 14th treaty previously dated from December 3rd. Pimpville did not have any de jure flag during the war.

June 2011 scare

Under the treaty, Ultamiya recognized Pimpville as a sovereign nation, and this was the de facto scene until the last days of May, when Minister of Assistance Benjamin J. Bobick showed Salapa, on his phone, that Pimpville had "posted" on the MicroWikia redeclaring war.[2] Once again, however, nothing came of the declaration, and it slowly faded away. However, the February treaty, which had been violated by this and other threats, died with the end of the school year.

Relations improve

By the beginning of the new school year, the situation had cooled off immensely, so much to the point that the two nations were ready to go further. On September 19th, 2011, King agreed to the fact that Ultamiya and Pimpville were in "alliance" which meant that the two were diplomatically stable.[3] This session of diplomatic relations continues to this day.

February 2012 scare

Though it had appeared that relations were finally settled, King then revealed his master plan. On February 23rd, 2012, he announced in a speech to his conversation partners, one being President Salapa, in the same room that all other talks between Ultamiya and Pimpville had taken place in, that he wanted Pimpville to conquer all the nations of MicroWiki. He said that Ultamiya could only be with Pimpville or against it. He issued an ultimatum to Salapa, giving him 24 hours to decide what side he was going to be on.[4] Salapa then took some precautionary steps, alerting Commander-in-Chief of the Garden Nation's military, the Minister of Assistance and his Lieutenant General. He also decided to begin production of the hundred airplanes set aside in the 2012 Air Force Act which was signed on the 21st. After these warnings, however, nothing of note occurred out of the ultimatum, as King never asked for a reply.
