The Austrar Islands is a micronation founded in 2013, by a group of 12 people. The Austrars territory has been divided recently due to many Austrarans claiming independence.
HistoryThe Austrar Islands first started off as a US military base in the Cold War. A few years later the island became owned by Austrar, which subsequently led to a lack of recognition for power in the area.
The territory of Austrar in recent time has decreased due to a number of civil conflicts which have resulted in the formation of the AR Vanobrasia, Republic of Arran, DDR Alforr and the attempted claim for sovereignty by Kaig. The situation in Austrar is tense as the DDR Alforr attempts to take the land that it claims but the Austrar Islands continue and intend to continue to fight for their land.
In 2013 the Austrar Islands participated in Microvision and are continuing this into 2014 with a re-entry into the international competition. In 2013 British Singer Emeli Sande visited the Austrar Islands officially, and she is now one of the most sought after entries to the Austrar 2014 Microvision bid.
The terrain of Austrar follows the typical Scottish terrain of slightly mountainous downlands which are laced with villages and towns like of that the capital Arran. The many divided territories of Austrar now make it difficult to track the exact geography of this country, however it is known that it is close to the highlands which results in a more mountainous landscape than the lowlands to the south.
Austrar previously claimed land in North America that was a small island chain to the west of Alaska, however that is now defunct leaving the sovereign territory purely on the island of Great Britain.
Austraran landscape is rather mountainous near the capital region but with other regions such as the St Loebasi region have a flat terrain yet is hard to tell. Austraran Kingdom Of China's terrain is completely different as its is extremely mountainous and has no villages or streams.
Military is supplied by Grampian Police and such the Austrar Islands remain under the protection of the Scottish forces despite claiming sovereignty over the land much like the situation in Iceland and many other macronations around the world. The Austrar Islands do not actively engage in warfare and thus use of a military for external purposes would be simply un-needed yet has been involved in the Alakazanian War where 5 Austrarans helped Alakazanians fight of the Oscatians. Another example is the Arran Civil conflict, when Republic Of Arran declared unofficial self independence and thus civil conflict broke out. Austrar still tries to hide the wars as they try to paint the image of a friendly nation so they can retain allies.

The Independence WorldWar
| Austrar Islands|| Republic Of Nordén|
| Ben Gilmór||President Jonathan|
|Casualties and losses|
The conflict began when American Militants invaded Smithville in July. When they invaded many of smithvilles allies came to supply aid and protect Smithville. In August the conflict in smithville continued when on August 12 the Republic Of Nordén claimed Northern Austrar to be Nordenish clay, after negotiating the only thing that had came out of it was Austrar declaring war on the republic of norden. Norden then invaded Fórdarhn and tried to invade Timorská, but were holded of by the austrarans. To this day Austraran troops are fighting to keep the nation alive.
