History

Formation

In 2016, Current Governor Kaloz formed the United Democratic Republic of Mackinac as a peace seeking nation, and a country where the citizens can have all their rights, equality, and live what was supposed to be the American dream. He first declared independence on May 12, 2016, and wrote the declaration of independence. He then joined forces with Current Deputy Governor Mixter, and they signed the declaration, sealing the independence. They then proceeded to fly the first national flag on the date of full independence, July 16, 2016, and declared that date to be flag day, as Independence day was marked already as May 12. Kaloz declared himself as president of the nation, and Mixter as the vice president.

Expansion

When the United Democratic Republic of Mackinac was originally formed, it only contained the Engadine Capital District, and went by the name of the Engadine Republic. Soon, President Kaloz decided to expand his territory, claiming the Townships of Garfield, Hudson, and Hendricks for the nation (merged as Garfield), on June 13, 2016. The current townships were referred to as districts of the nation, then.

He soon decided to claim the west half of Michigan's Mackinac County, and then declared the country's second name, the Republic of West Mackinac. This contained the districts of Garfield, Portage, and Newton. He then declared the nation to contain all of Mackinac County, and granted Vice President Mixter the eastern half of the country. They soon decided to merge the country as one and not have it split up between halves of the government.

When Vice President Mixter declared his previously dormant nation as active again, and he decided to expand his territory to take the northwestern part of Michigan's upper peninsula, but then decided to cede Houghton County back to the United States. They decided they wanted to border each other, and that Mackinac should border Canada, for help with refugees. Because of this decision, President Kaloz declared Luce and Chippewa counties as territories of Mackinac.
