History

Varcetia was formed on 6th July 2009 and originaly was made up from one state (the Presidents house). Since then more states have been formed increasing the population and size of the nation. In only the firsth 26 days of its existence, it was: taking part in the micronational games, making many foreign relations, become widly recognised as a nation and waiting for a reply from the british government for independence.
The Nation has a Facebook, Bebo and Youtube page. It hopes that by the end of 2010 it becomes as recognisable as Sealand, this goal has been set by the President and is currently undergoing. The capital, Varcetia City, hopes to be twinned the capital of Landashir - Sycamore-Booker.

From October 2009-September 2010 Varcetia was in a state of inactivity due to conflicts between the government. In September 2010 the government stabalised and Varcetia once again became an active nation with the party and leader, Henry Wilkinson, still in power. New diplomatic relations have been made and everything has been declared 'back to normal' by the president.
