After, Columbusstan, Terrexa joined, with Cearmont and Zuhanese Commonwealth joining in the later parts of 2019 and the early parts of 2020. The nation dissolved on the 15th of March 2020.

Colchester was once the capital of Roman Britain and was considered a once important European city. This appeals to Caloudonoum's greater European Aspirations.

The culture and language of the region was English. The name comes from a logging term Timber. The region was a micronation created by Jack Reach back in 2017 before the unification of Mistak and Timberia. The combination of these two names was decided back in 2018 after a summer camp experience between Sam Smith, Otto Gillespie Birch, Jack Reach, Matthew Wentworth and Jane H.

History

Collage of all flags used by the Misberian Government over the last 5 years.

On February 23rd Misberia and Aspen united into the Aspen Misberian Empire, union looked hopeful and promising for both parties but problems soon arose. Underrepresented government, confusing government and a feeling of Misberian culture being squashed under the Aspen eagle. On March 6th Misberia officially declared independence from the Aspen Misberian Empire and has been considered a major point in Misberian History. Elections were soon held and the first non human Prime Minister Cali Cactus was elected with 78% of the vote, the runner up Jay Clover was made the Deputy Prime Minister and did the work behind the eye of the public. Misberian Somcowian relations continued to boil as time went on, as well did Misberian Fesmarian relations as both governments respectively were in capable of either keeping a steady government or could keep a nation going for longer than three weeks. New elections were held on June 1st as the government had become very inactive, again the Cactus won the Premiership with Hville Alvstad as the Deputy Prime Minister doing all the work. On June 15th Samuel Hoffmann was made Prince Regent to watch over Misberia while Otto went to work for the summer and the World Scout Jamboree. During the summer the government became next to non existant as all government officials lost interest in running the government. On July 6th 2019 Caloudonoum joined Misberia as a Special Regional State. When Otto returned himself, Samuel Hoffmann and Hville Alvstad all worked together to rework the government to allow the people to have less of a say as a general consensus was, the nobles do all the work so a Royal Council was created with the three making up the council. The nation officially changed its name to "The United Kingdoms of Misberia and Caloudonoum" on August 16th 2019. On September 1st the very first Misberian-Calodan Parliament was convened for elected officials elected in June of 2019.

Confederation Era

On July 6th 2019, Samuel Hoffmann of Caloudonoum reached out to Misberian leader Otto Gillespie Birch saying he had been uninterested in the community for some time and wanted Otto to take over Caloudonoum as a part of Misberia. Otto agreed and spend a few days taking all the information from the Calodan server and put it in a google doc to preserve the history of the nation. On September 8th of 2019 the nation finally renamed to the Misberian Caloodan Confederation and was a monarchist oligarchy system till October 28th when the nation reformed as Otto Gillespie Birch as King with a Representative Council and Civilian Assembly with the nation being very open and allowing for all members of the community, the nation is now facing its more active and productive part of the nation.

National Culture

Misberian

The culture of New England comprises a shared heritage and culture primarily shaped by its

indigenous peoples, early English colonists, and waves of immigration from Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas. In contrast to other American regions, many of New England's earliest Puritan settlers came from eastern England, contributing to New England's distinctive accents, foods, customs, and social structures.

Social Actives:

In much of rural northern New England, particularly Maine, Acadian and Québécois culture are included in music and dance. Contra dancing and country square dancing are popular throughout New England, usually backed by live Irish, Acadian, or other folk music. Town government and outdoor based activities are more typical social activities. In the U.S., candle pin bowling is essentially confined to New England, where it was invented in the 19th century. Basketball was invented in Springfield, Massachusetts, and volleyball was invented in Holyoke, Massachusetts. Boston is the site of the New England Conservatory and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. The Yale School of Music in New Haven, CT is another renowned institution.

Accents:

There are several American English accents spoken in the region including New England English and Boston Accent. The New England English dialect and Boston accent are native to the region. Many of its most stereotypical features (such as r dropping and the so-called broad A) are believed to have originated in Boston from the influence of England's Received Pronunciation, which shares those features. While some Boston accents are most strongly associated with the so-called "Eastern Establishment" and Boston's upper class, the common accent is locally prevalent and predominantly associated with blue-collar natives exemplified by movies like Good Will Hunting and The Departed. The Boston accent and accents closely related to it cover eastern Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine. Some Rhode Islanders speak with a non-rhotic accent that many compare to a "Brooklyn" or a cross between a New York and Boston accent ("water" becomes "wata"). Many Rhode Islanders distinguish the aw sound [ɔə̯], as one might hear in New Jersey; e.g., the word coffee is pronounced [ˈkʰɔə̯fi]. This type of accent was brought to the region by early settlers from eastern England in the Puritan migration in the mid-seventeenth century.Historian Samuel Eliot Morison uses the metaphor of wine to describe the relationship between present New England culture and its past:

Food:

Many of the first European colonists of New England had a maritime orientation toward whaling (first noted about 1650) and fishing, in addition to farming. New England has developed a distinct cuisine, dialect, architecture, and government. New England cuisine has a reputation for its emphasis on seafood and dairy; clam chowder, lobster, and other products of the sea are among some of the region's most popular foods.

Religion:

Today, New England is the least religious part of the U.S. In 2009, less than half of those polled in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont claimed that religion was an important part of their daily lives. Southernmost New England in Connecticut is among the ten least religious states, 53 percent, of those polled claimed that it was. According to the American Religious Identification Survey, 34 percent of Vermonters, a plurality, claimed to have no religion; on average, nearly one out of every four New Englanders identifies as having no religion, more than in any other part of the U.S. New England has one of the highest percentages of Catholics in the U.S. This number declined from 50% in 1990 to 36% in 2008.

Caloudonoum

Overview:

Calodan culture is an odd mix of Central European culture and British culture. It is a very progressive country, where same-sex marriage is legal along with the legalization of medical drugs and many anti-discrimination laws to protect women, LGBT people and the disabled. It's culture is largely related to the different ethnic groups with Calodanian's having a culture similar to Britain, whereas Trinovantes having a more European Culture. The anthem of Caloudonoum is to the tune of 'Prussian Glory'with words in both English and Dutch, although the words are never usually sung.

Heraldry:

The county's coat of arms comprises three Saxon seax knives (although they look rather more like scimitars), mainly white and pointing to the right (from the point of view of the observer), arranged vertically one above another on a red background (Gules three Seaxes fessewise in pale Argent pomels and hilts Or points to the sinister and cutting edges upwards); the three-seax device is also used as the official logo of Essex County Council; this was granted in 1932. The emblem was attributed to Anglo-Saxon Essex in Early Modern historiography. The earliest reference to the arms of the East Saxon kings was by Richard Verstegan, the author of A Restitution of Decayed Intelligence (Antwerp, 1605), claiming that "Erkenwyne king of the East-Saxons did beare for his armes, three [seaxes] argent, in a field gules". There is no earlier evidence substantiating Verstegan's claim, which is an anachronism for the Anglo-Saxon period seeing that heraldry only evolved in the 12th century, well after the Norman Conquest. John Speed in his Historie of Great Britaine (1611) follows Verstegan in his descriptions of the arms of Erkenwyne, but he qualifies the statement by adding "as some or our heralds have emblazed".

Activities:

Essex is also home to the Dunmow Flitch Trials, a traditional ceremony that takes place every four years and consists of a test of a married couple's devotion to one another. A common claim of the origin of the Dunmow Flitch dates back to 1104 and the Augustinian priory of Little Dunmow, founded by Lady Juga Baynard. Lord of the Manor Reginald Fitzwalter and his wife dressed themselves as humble folk and begged blessing of the Prior a year and a day after marriage. The prior, impressed by their devotion, bestowed upon them a flitch of bacon. Upon revealing his true identity, Fitzwalter gave his land to the priory on condition that a flitch should be awarded to any couple who could claim they were similarly devoted. By the 14th century, the Dunmow Flitch Trials appear to have achieved a significant reputation outside the local area. The author William Langland, who lived on the Welsh borders, mentions it in his 1362 book The Vision of Piers Plowman in a manner that implies general knowledge of the custom among his readers.

Accent:

The Essex dialect, an accent related to the Suffolk dialect, was formerly prevalent in the county but has now been mostly replaced by Estuary English.

Sport

Essex is home to two English Football League teams: Southend United and Colchester United. Both teams have reached as high as the Championship (the second tier of English football) at some point in their history. As of 2018–19 Southend United are in League One, while Colchester United are in League Two. Braintree Town are the next highest-placed team, playing in the National League, followed by Chelmsford City, Concord Rangers and East Thurrock United, who play in the National League South. The highest domestic trophy for non-league teams, the FA Trophy, has been won on four occasions by Essex teams; most recently by Grays Athletic in 2006.
