The House of Wellmoore, Wellmoore's Royal Household, was also founded around this time.

Lockdown Period (23 March 2020 - July 2020)

During the United Kingdom's first full national lockdown, His Majesty finished the formation of the Government, set up the Armed Forces of Wellmoore and Royal Wellmoorean Police Force and drafted the constitution and the laws of the land as well as forming the 3 regions of Wellmoore (Apsion, Fairwood, Oxhall). The Capital City was appointed an named, becoming Midnight City. The monarchy became constitutional.

Post-Lockdown Period (July 2020 - 4 June 2021)

His Majesty began hiring others for governmental, police, military and justice positions including appointing the first Prime Minister of Wellmoore. He also entered Wellmoore into the Progressive Association as well as other alliances. The nation grew and became more developed and is still being developed. The monarchy became a Constitutional Executive Monarchy.

Wellmoorean Crisis & Insurgency (30 June 2021 - 2 July 2021)

On 31 June 2021, King Luke of Wellmoore was informed of a potential insurgency within the nation to dethrone him without anything provoking them to.

On 1 July 2021 this was confirmed by the Insurgent's Leader. A number of citizens and friends of the King turned and threatened a Civil War. As of noon on 1 July the Insurgent Leader stepped down, but leadership was passed on, and the Insurgent Group was still threatening the nation. Later in the afternoon leadership of the rebellion fell to the Prime Minister of Wellmoore.

On 2 July 2021 the Prime Minister then disbanded the Insurgency, returning Wellmoore to peace.

War Against the Seljuks Period (4 June 2021 - 4 October 2021)

On 4 June 2021, a member of the Progressive Association (People's Republic of Titan) was raided by the Seljuk Empire and war was declared. Wellmoore decided to provide support to their ally in their war against the Empire. Wellmoore fought to assist their ally and to prevent other nations being attacked, though King Luke held apprehensions about Wellmoore's affiliation with the war due to being one of the majority who disagree with micronational war.

On 4 October 2021, King Luke withdrew Wellmoore from the War after 4 months to the day of being affiliated with the war due to inactivity of the war at the time and Wellmoore not wishing to becoming a target and wishing to remove affiliation.
