A Nation is Born
The Collapse of Benoom
On the 15th of February 2011, a group of Benoomians banded together to become the New Benoomian Sect which aimed to overthrow the Emperor, and sought unification with the Republic of Samton. After 12 hours of battle and siege, the Emperor finally resigned and began negotiations with the Presidentess of Samton to seek unification.
The Unification Begins
Ex-Emperor Ben McKinlay was elected Leader of the Unification Group as he was the one who the Presidentess was most likely to listen to. After hours of negotiation, it was finally decided that the Unification would go ahead.
The Unified Republic
After the negotiations were finished, Ben McKinlay began drafting a new constitution for the new Republic that was reviewed and passed after several hours of discussion. The hardest part of this Unification was the name, but eventually one was decided on. Thantias.
The Early Days
The early days of the Unified Republics of Thantias was fairly inactive, although some democratic relations were reached. The most noticeable thing that happened in this period was seeking a treaty with A1 but Thantias never heard back so it did not go through. Eventually, the then Premier of the Republic, Ben McKinlay, was annoyed at the inactivity and arranged a reformation.
The First Reformation
The Premier spend many days making a new constitution and thinking up new and innovating ideas for Thantias. The future looked bright. Election Day came around the Ben McKinlay was elected President of the Unified Republics. As well as this, the Republic was declared a federation and became the Unified Republics of Thantias, plural.
The Reformation did not as planned however, and the President's plans did not go ahead. Many plans, such as the NIC's, were postponed, and others, like the Rocket Program, never got started. This annoyed both the people and the President so the Second Thantian Reformation began.
The Second Reformation
On the 21st of June 2011 the President officially started the reformation, though in reality this started several days ago when the President started using Skype. The Reformation introduced new currencies, and the NIC's were finally rolled out, much to the pleasure of the President. As well as this, the Republics joined the Organization of United Micronations and Ben McKinlay became Vice-Chancellor.
