Thule's history goes went back to February 2016, when the idea of the Union of Arctic Islands, Thule's predecessor, rose the first time.
As the Union of Arctic Islands
The Union of Arctic Islands was officially established 12.2.2016. Back then it was basically the a synonym to the Faroese Realm, and it's members were the Faroe Islands without Chagosia. It had three members; Faroe Islands, Free State of Vonia and the dependent territory of Rockall.
Viktorisla and Rockall got indpendence, but they were still a part of the UOAI. On May 2016 Rockall became again a part of the Faroe Islands, after a refendrum, this time as an autonomous region.
Changing to Thule
On 28.6.2016 Union of Arctic Islands was renamed Commonwealth of the Thule and it's flag and coat of arms were changed, and same time all countries in the Northern hemisphere and areas associated to it were allowed to join, not only arctic islands, which was seen as an opportunity to grow, and the organisation got one new members, the Faroese protectorate of Chagosia.
On 5.7.2016 Richardtopian Empire was invited to the alliance, and three days later it joined Thule.On 10.12.2016 the (First) Commonwealth of the Thule was disbanded, as the Faroese realm countries left.
GeographyThule claimed territories in Europe, Asia and Antarctica. It claimed the Faroe Islands, islet of Rockall and Viktorisla (internationally known as Victoria Island), Chagosia (internationally known as the Chagos Islands) and the Faroese-Chagosian Antarctic Territory.
Thule had a lot of features that could suggest it's a micronation, altrough it couldn't be counted as one. The commonwealth had it's own national animal, eurasian oystercatcher.
Thule had its own poem-style national anthem, called Shout Hurray:
Never stop your love to Thule, wake up in a morning new.
Always strong and united, respect what our heroes did.
Chorus: Pray for Commonwealth of the Thule. Shout Hurray, shout Hurray!
Never fall to East nor West, Northern way is Thule's best!
Remember our Leader's message, go forward at every age.
Chorus: Pray for Commonwealth of the Thule. Shout hurray, shout hurray!
