The United Republics of Gapla and Phoenix, also known as Gapla-Phoenix was a micronation founded on the 24th of August in 2015 by two children at Cypress Village Elementary School, named Ian Shin and Wyatt Seungri Baek. After conflicts arose, the nation split into the Principality of Phoenix and the Principality of Gapla. After the conflict, Phoenix was taken over by Gaplan Official Mirabelle Wang and entered into a state of Gapla, forming an original state of the Federated States of Gapla.
One day, Ian and Wyatt drew a map planning how the new nation would be made. They decided it would have two provinces, named Gapla and Phoenix. Ian became the First President, and Wyatt as his Vice President. Until then, the land was fake until they claimed a "secret base" in the school that became their meeting place. The leaders recruited citizens and created the Gapla-Phoenix Coin (GPC) and established military ranks and ID cards.
The Secret Base
The Secret Base was a hidden corner of the school that the nation had meetings in. It was yet to be found by the teachers, and votes were held until the bell rang. During the next election, Wyatt became President and he appointed Ian as his Vice. This was the new "Expansion Era" of the nation.
The Expansion Era was a period of history in Gapla-Phoenix where two new provinces joined, Jamestown, led by James, who appointed Mandarin as another language to be official, and Freedom Island, led by Hankyul. After the expansion era, Ian became president again and added some new rules that became the part of the Conflict Era.
The Conflict Era in Gapla-Phoenix history was an era where Ian became prseident and appointed James as his Vice. He then held thought to be illegal referendums to kick Wyatt out of the country. After the referendums failed, Wyatt said that he would be suceeding Gapla from the union, and finding operations in another secret base. This time was the hostile part, as the Principalities of Gapla and Phoenix were born. The Principality of Gapla largely expanded, while Phoenix was running out of citizens.
Gaplan Takeover of Phoenix
After some time, Wyatt thought it would be nice to integrate Phoenix into Gapla. He swore Mirabelle Wang in as a spy, went into Phoenix operations, and won the next election, having Hankyul has her Vice. She immediately passed illegal referendums to join Gapla, although the change was made. This is a big part in Gaplan history, and Phoenix is still part of Gapla today.
