The locality in which Indradhanush is located (Kudlu) first emerged when Jyothi Labs set up a factory for their famous brand, Ujala. The factory was eventually demolished due to environmental concerns. The construction of the factory led to the creation of various pharmacies and clinics. Due to Kudlu having various empty plots, BBMP decided to set up a waste management factory, known as KCDC. Zee Learn Ltd later set up a Mount Litera Zee School. Eventually, Kudlu became more and more residential. The residents started to protest about the stench from the KCDC Compost plant. Various outdoor activities have been suspended in the Mount Litera Zee School, Kudlu due to it. .
The name "Roselia" comes from the Pokémon "Roselia"
According to Bulbapedia,
Roselia (Japanese: ロゼリア Roselia) is a dual-type Grass-Poison introduced in Generation III.
It evolves from Budew when leveled up with high friendship during the day and evolves into Roserade when exposed to a Shiny Stone.
According to the Pokedex entry from Ruby,
Roselia shoots sharp thorns as projectiles at any opponent that tries to steal the flowers on its arms. The aroma of this Pokémon brings serenity to living things.

Republic of Lowenia
The Republic of Lowenia was formed on 2nd May 2020 at 1:00 pm (Indian Standard Time). The initial days went in fulfilling the 1933 Montevideo Convention.
The constitution of the Republic of Lowenia was made at 28 May 2020. Initially, it had included toys but was later excluded. In June, the flag, currency, stamps and anthem were decided. In July, the Republic of Lowenia applied for the Cupertino Alliance and became a member on 12th Sep 2020.
Special Administrative Region of Chandril
After rounds of deliberations between the State of Vishwamitra and the former Republic of Lowenia, the latter merged into Vishwamitra on 18 October 2020 attaining the status of a special administrative territory despite efforts from the nation's former President Chandrachur Basu to merge it into Vishwamitra with the same status of a royal state. The merger of Lowenia into Vishwamitra took place on 18 October 2020 with the signing of the Treaty of Chandril which conferred the status of a special administrative territory on the former territories of Lowenia. The new region was to be known as Chandril at the proposal of Chandrachur Basu, who was subsequently appointed as Administrator of Chandril. As an act of appointment, the Rashtradhyaksh appointed Administrator Chandrachur Basu as a Grand Cross of the Order of the Vishwamitra, a Commander of the Order of the Lotus and a member of the Privy Council, despite the administrator's demands to be a member of the Conference of Rulers.
However, within weeks of the merger, tensions began to escalate between Rashtradhyaksh Dhrubajyoti Roy and Administrator Chandrachur Basu to tried his best to elevate himself to the same status of a royal state ruler or Rajpramukh. It also increased when the Rashtradhyaksh, as Sovereign of Chandril declined to grant his approval on several bills proposed by the administrator which included bills to establish a memorial structure and museum of artworks done by the administrator himself and the creation of a toy train network. It was in mid-December 2020 when the Administrator, claiming to be fed up with the actions of the Sovereign, declared self-independence of Chandril but moments later begged pardon of his action. The administrator's removal from the Privy Council due to some of his notorious actions in his official capacity also contributed to his anger against the sovereign, though he was later re-appointed on 1 January 2021.
The sovereign had also rejected to approve the creation of the administrator's birthday on 1 December as a state holiday but inclined on approving the creation of the Order of Chandril which was to be bestowed at the administrator's proposal. With the first ennoblements made to the peerage of Vishwamitra, Administrator Chandrachur Basu was made Count of Calton yet to his displeasure as he to be ennobled to the same status of then Foreign Minister Ștefan Marius Snagoveanu who was made Duke of Entrosinhos.
Chandril was expelled from Vishwamitra following the events of 6 February 2021.
Kingdom of Indradhanush
The State of Indradhanush declared independence on 13 February 2021.
The coronation of Chandrachur Basu happened on 13 February 2021. It was a solemn ceremony due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He decided to adopt his surname as his regnal name. The full style of him after his coronation is:-
"His Majesty Basu I, of the State of Indradhanush, Sovereign of Chandril City, Carreville and Gadinagar, Defender of the Constitution and all faiths, Sovereign of the Privy Council, Supreme Commander of the Army, Navy and Airforce of Indradhanush, Sovereign and Grand Master of Order of Chandrachur I"
After the coronation, Basu I went to work. He immediately started to construct Indradhanush and its government. Under his reign, Hibernia was annexed. The diplomatic sphere was expanded. On one fine Sunday, the server of Indradhanush was raided. He couldn't do anything since his laptop was on charge at that time. He dealt with it the next day. He later said that this was the result of his karma and Newton's 3rd Law of Motion. He applied for the GUM for observership and the CA for membership. He abdicated on 24th February 2021, after ruling for just 11 days due to his failure of admitting Indradhanush into the GUM due to his past actions. He declared that fellow Privy Council, Aircraft[b], be the next king.
Aircraft, became the King of Indradhanush on the same day. The announcement was the first and only declaration by His Majesty Aircraft, he announced,
Indradhanush is no longer a nation situated within Asia. It is now a nation with a global presence.
— His Majesty Aircraft I on the #announcements channel in Indradhanush, 25 February 2021
This was a major change from the isolationist domestic and foreign policy that the country was following. On 26 February 2021, Chandrachur Basu did a coup d'état on HM Aircraft I and crowned himself King of Indradhanush.
Chandrachur Basu was impressed with the announcement that Aircraft made. He was forced to agree and changed the foreign policy of Indradhanush. This era was the prosperous or the golden era of Indradhanush. Under this, major reforms were done by Chandrachur I such as the merger of Wisea into Indradhanush, annexation of Hibernia, creation of the orders, decorations, and medals of Indradhanush etc. He appointed Zabëlle Skye as Prime Minister. He also applied for the Micronational Assembly and proposed the MID Act.
Chandrachur I, decided to take a break as he had exams within a few days. He decided he needed a regent for a temporary basis. So, in the night, he appointed Michal Nowacki, as King of Indradhanush by taking the following announcement:-
I declare His Excellency Nowacki as King of Indradhanush till further notice.
— His Majesty Chandrachur I on the #announcements channel in Indradhanush
Announcements of HM's Government of Queensland
Blacklist of the State of Indradhanush and Chandrachur Basu
The government has reported that the State of Indradhanush and Chandrachur Basu has acted inappropriately in many ways. And it happened that Chandrachur Basu led a foreigner to become the head of state of the State of Indradhanush who attempted to start a game of slandering a country with excellent diplomatic relations with Queensland, the "State of Vishwamitra".
Queensland will not tolerate Chandrachur Basu conduct. The Government of the Kingdom of Queensland therefore resolved to declare that the State of Indradhanush and Chandrachur Basu is "blacklisted" from today onwards and will not have termination or cancellation of this notice.
Vishwamitra sent this lengthy statement.
We have been informed that Mr. Nowacki was not consulted before the appointment and also that he has abdicated minutes back.
It was considered as a diplomatic failure from Indradhanush, and specifically, Chandrachur. The Dark Ages or the Regency Era began right after the Nowacki Crisis. Chandrachur Basu decided to propose an impeachment motion against himself in the Privy Council of Indradhanush. The vote went like this:-
It was eventually decided to appoint John Lakes as the next king. The first thing he did was dissolve the nation. The reason he gave was that he was more involved in his own nation, the Republic of Floriland.
On 30 July 2021, Chandrachur Basu decided to revive the country. He finished his coronation ceremony in the country of NoboBangla. He then passed a royal decree which appointed Nafiz Morshalin, replacing Zabëlle Skye as the Prime Minister of Indradhanush. He resigned after 4 days becoming the shortest-term serving PM. He suggested that his brother serve as Prime Minister. Chandrachur Basu agreed and hence, Nabin Mutakin became the Prime Minister of Indradhanush.
His Majesty Chandrachur I then passed a royal decree on 11 August 2021, highlighting the goals of the nation. He then passed a huge royal decree on 16 August 2021, containing 20 points. It is the longest royal decree ever passed in Indradhanush. On 7 September 2021, Chandrachur Basu passed a royal decree introducing the concept of ambassadors to the country. Indradhanush became an observer in the Cupertino Alliance on 10 September 2021, with 14 supports, 3 opposes and 2 abstentions. On 11 September 2021, in a surprise announcement, His Majesty Chandrachur Basu changed the Prime Minister to James Roberts. On 16 September 2021, he completed 200 days of his reign as Monarch of Indradhanush.
The 1st Swivelter Ministry was announced by Chandrachur Basu on 23 September 2021. It is the largest cabinet formed in Indradhanush and consisted of 6 cabinet ministers. On 25 September 2021, the country inaugurated the current flag adopted. It is made by Stefan Marius Snagoveanu and combined the flag of Lowenia and the previous flag. The country is currently on vote for promoting its status in the Cupertino Alliance from observer to member. He also appointed him as member of the Privy Council.
Indradhanush then went on a diplomatic spree by signing diplomatic treaties with 3 micronations in 3 days. It signed a treaty with Winterspell on 5 October, Salanda on 6 October 2021 and Arsalania on 7 October 2021. Each of the treaties were unique. Winterspell is the first American nation to recognize Indradhanush. It was also their first diplomatic interaction. On 7 October 2021, His Majesty Chandrachur I of Indradhanush, His Majesty Petrus I of Winterspell and the Prime Minister of Winterspell had a informal summit. Salanda is the first British nation to recognize the nation. Arsalania is the first Pakistani and ASAM micronation to recognize Indradhanush. The relations with all the nations currently are amicable.
It eventually became a member of the Cupertino Alliance on 13 October 2021, on the occasion of Maha Asthami, with 7 votes for promotion, 4 votes for expellation and 3 votes to remain observership. On the same day, Hibernia was reorganized as the merger of Carreville and Gadinagar.
The Rory Era or the Roravian Era started from 28 October 2021 till 18 November 2021, when Chandrachur I, decided to take a break as he had mid-terms within a few days. Wanting to prevent another crisis, he personally contacted Rory, whether he could serve as regent. He accepted the position. Rory previously served as the Monarch of Indradhanush on 23 and 24 September 2021 during the Phoenix Era on the wish of Chandrachur. He issued 5 royal decrees on 23 September and 24 September, completely altering Indradhanush.
He created the Order of the Royal Indian Star, formally granted Chandrachur I the Duke of Chandril City[d], dissolved Parliament, which it still is. He also removed the Privy Council President and dissolved the role of the Prime Minister.
Eventually Chandrachur came and revoked the decrees that removed the Privy Council President and the Prime Minister. His Majesty Chandrachur Basu then passed royal decrees on special occasions like Durga Pujo, Diwali or Deepawali[e].
As Chandrachur didn't want to prevent history repeating itself (the Nowacki Crisis), he asked Rory whether he could be Sovereign in his absence. He agreed and so he made the announcement.
Rory will serve as regent till November 18.
— His Majesty Chandrachur I on the #announcements channel in Indradhanush
Rory, unlike last time, published 1 royal decree. In this, he created the Officer of the State.The title will be used by the deputy in charge of the nation. He/she will be styled ‘His Excellency the Officer of the State. He declared Chandrachur Basu as the Officer of the State. Eventually, Chandrachur Basu returned and assumed office as Monarch of Indradhanush on 19 November 2021.
On 12 December 2021, Chandrachur Basu declared his mother as the Queen and announced that according to her instructions, Indradhanush will be terminating all diplomatic relations with foreign nations. Shortly after, the discord server used as the online representation of the Kingdom was seized by Nafiz Morshalin who did a coup d'état of the Kingdom under the name of the Republic of Lowenia which is believed to be a revived version of the original Republic of Lowenia, albeit with the territories per. King Basu fled after the coup d'état.
Such events were preceded by the termination of recognition by the State of Vishwamitra after the Kingdom of Indradhanush failed to prove itself as a proper physical nation. It was also because of some issues raised by Dhrubajyoti Roy on the governance, seriousness and professionalism of the nation. The People's Republic of Arsalania was reportedly considering terminating relations as well until the Kingdom unilaterally terminated relations with all nations on it's own. On 14 December 2021, Chandrachur Basu sent a statement that was compared to Daniel Hamilton's message to Australissians.
Personal Announcement of Chandrachur Basu to all Indradhanushians and the MicroWiki Community in general
BROTHERS AND SISTERS OF INDRADHANUSH,
Due to some major incidents and changes in my personal life, I will be taking a permanent hiatus from the Discord micronational community (Excluding MicroWiki). However, Indradhanush will remain in existence under the Queen’s rule till I am 18.
This process will be weird, and it will sadden many, however it was inevitable for Indradhanush. Indradhanush will return to being a locally governed and micronationally isolated nation. The Indradhanushian Discord server will cease to be used for the government, and I will also cease to use it. The Privy Council will be dissolved. I thank all Privy Councillors, former and current, for the beautiful and dedicated tenure to the nation.
Everyone will raise their hands to say that what I am doing is wrong. To you, I would clarify for the last time for you to see the reason that I have no other choice. I wish to rule Indradhanush, but I cannot do so if I have to maintain and continue my education. Those who have been in the Privy Council know how much I score in my exams. So please, if I have to continue that pattern, I have to make this decision. Do not make this more difficult than it is. I am incredibly sorry for the inconveniences that have and will be caused.
From 15 December 2021, the Kingdom of Indradhanush shall return to being a locally governed and micronationally isolated nation. I wish that when I will be 18, then I will be able to come back to lead on Discord once again and rule like a King.
With best regards,
Crown Prince of the Kingdom of Indradhanush
On 24 December 2021, the Queen changed her regnal name from Raani I to Monroe I[f] and asked her coronation be held on New Year (1 January 2022). It went ahead and as such the coronation of Queen Monroe I happened. The coronation honours were also released.

- The title of the Duke of Chandril City was considered a de facto role of the Sovereign of Indradhanush.
- As said in South India.
- It was later found out that Chandrachur Basu gave his mother the regnal name of "Raani I", without her permission. She didn't like the name as Raani means Queen in both Hindi and Bengali. As such, it literally meant her name was Queen Queen the First of Indradhanush.. So, as such, Chandrachur proposed her name be "Kajol I" after the actress Kajol. She rejected this and as such opted for Monroe I, after Marilyn Monroe, the famous American actress.
