Background

On 12 January 2020, Whatopia was founded by Derek Montes Baffier, Charlie Hunt, Oscar, and Rusty at their lunch table at school after the teachers told them to move to another table. The rebels, constantly fighting for independence and standing by their micronation, never left, planting the seeds for war.

Prelude

15 January

After long heated tensions growing between the teachers and the rebels, Baffier and Hunt gave the principal of middle school a contract for both the Whatopian party and the teacher party to sign which would allow Whatopia to continue properly without any intervention from anyone for 1 year.[1] The principal reportedly "shredded" the contract after the two met the principal again.[2]

The email sent by someone telling the future President of Whatopia that they were forced to move tables, starting the Whatopian Revolutionary Cold War (with censored private information).

16 January

Baffier fell sick that day due to stomach ache and a high fever, therefore unable to show up at school.[3] At 2:17 PM, Baffier received an email from someone that the group had to move table after the teacher got very angry and "snappy".[4] The future President was informed that they would only spend a month at the new table before switching back, but being fearful that it would never happen and feeling injustice on why they had to move in the first place, the President said that it would not "settle with him", starting the Whatopian Revolutionary Cold War.

Course of the war

17 January

This was the tensest day of the cold war as it was the final day of the week, which would give time to plan an attack if needed and re-structure everyone for the best possible outcome, and the day Baffier returned to school after the group got moved. The group arrived in the lunchroom first as to sit at the table before the kids who just moved there did, and then waved mini flags of the Whatopian flag made by Baffier on 12 January.[5] The teachers were talking and pointing to the group, but to Baffier's delight, nothing happened and the group ate in peace.[6]

20 January

On the school bus to school, Baffier told Hunt, also on the bus, that if Whatopia wasn't disrupted by the teachers until Friday, 24 January, it would mean a victory for Whatopia and the war would be over. Baffier also stated that Whatopia was at a point that if any teacher were to ask Whatopia to move that they would then invade other tables spreading chaos and hatred throughout the lunchroom,[7] but this was never Baffier's plan as he used that as a coverup for the pranks he was ready to deploy on the teachers because he was fearful that his citizens and officials would disprove of this action. That day nothing happened again.

21-23 January

Around this time, Whatopia became a micronation of 6 as someone else joined. On 22 January, Baffier was elected President of Whatopia.[8] Besides that, nothing else happened.

24 January

Nothing happened that day so Baffier declared the cold war a Whatopian victory and with that it was finished.[9] Baffier was now finally able to start building Whatopia into the micronation it was meant to be.
