History and Etymology
Wynnland comes from the Anglo-Saxon way of saying Wind. Wynnland experiences heavy winds throughout the year. Wynnish is the official demonym used to describe something of belonging to Wynnland, except the noun which refers to a person from Wynnland. Speaking in context, "Wynnland" usually refers to the counties making up the Kingdom, not her overseas territories and colonies. Wynnland was founded on 1 June 2020 after the dissolution of Doggenburg.
Foundation to the end of 2020
Wynnland was founded on 1 June 2020 by Maximilian and Sudarshana Rajagapol. Soon after the first general elections were held with the Federalist Party forming a government. The Federalist administration was the first administration. It oversaw the expansion of Wynnland's territories and the growth of the population to 45 citizens. The Federalists established basic laws, finished the adoption of the constitution, and helped Wynnland establish itself internally. The Federalist Party leader and Prime Minister at the time, Carter Wilson, was granted a hereditary noble title. This act of the crown, was the first elevation of an individual to an aristocratic title. Federalists continued to nationalize the government.
In August 2020, inactivity began to plague the nation. The cause of this inactivity was blamed on the current Federalist government and a vote of no confidence was filed against the Federalist government. The second general election was held on 16 August 2020. This general election had the lowest voter turnout in the history of the country with only four votes being casted all together. The Socialist Party formed a minority government headed by Jack Kaufmann. Kaufmann promised the Wynnish people in growing the country into a strong and large nation. Later that year, the King issued a royal decree dissolving the House of Commons and establishing a unicameral Parliament with a House of Lords. This Parliament would soon fail to provide sufficient activity and in December, the King called for a general election scheduled for 8 January 2021. This marked the end of the Foundation Era in Wynnish history and began the Modern Era.
On 8 January the third general election in the country's history occurred. Wynnland voted in favor of a pro-monarchist government, certifying the crown's efforts to expand and imperialize. The Monarchist Party then renamed itself to the Conservatives. The Conservatives introduced some legislation that provided the Monarch with more power and thus more work. The government fell into inactivity which led to an inactivity crisis. A snap election was called which ushered in a new government to take the reigns.
Gabriel Sebastian and his Social Nationalist Front received a majority and mandate from the people to form a government, they did so on February 13, 2021. The Social Nationalist government was by far the most active government in the history of the country. It provided legislation and successfully reformed the foreign policy of Wynnland. Government structure was immensely reformed during this period. Power transferred away from the nobles and more into the power of the members of Parliament. But on March 12th, 2021, the party had internal fighting which caused a schism in the government. May Cambridge, the Speaker of the Unterhaus, left Wynnland in protest. Sebastian would resign as Prime Minister 2 days later. An emergency government was put in order.
