The name "Dalton" comes from "Dalton-le-Dale", a village in County Durham, United Kingdom. Dalton is located in a region locally known as the "Dalton Region" due to the nation's close proximity with Dalton-Le-Dale.
The nations of St. Robertsburg was founded by Robert Garside and a Friend known as "Jack Jobson" in 2007 as an attempt to break away from the British government and create a new sovereign state. St. Robertsburg showed very little activity and was eventually disolved. On the 9th December 2011 Robert Garside discovered micronations on the internet, he then consulted his uncle and together they decided to re-found St. Robertsburg as a more active and professional nation, on the 10th December 2012 St. Robertsburg was officially founded and entered the micronational community soon after. The nation established good relations with Grémmia (then known as the Democracy of Grum).
Early Independent Dalton
Dalton was founded at a sucessor state to St. Robertsburg on 7th January 2012. The territory of Dalton was larger than that of St. Robertsburg and a crude conlang was created. As well as this, the government ordered the first cloth Daltonese flag and made printed money for the first time.
On the 12th January 2012, Dalton, Williamsia (now Wisteria) and Rosettia (now the Empire of Los Angeles) decided to merge to create a lager micronation known as the Dalton-Rosettian-Williamsian Republic (or DRWR), the main aim of the merge was to create a larger, stronger micronation. The day the DRWR was founded, the World Armoured Federation declared war on the nation due due to an unknown hacker, posing as the DRWR declared the World Armored Federation micronational terrorists. Armor's president, Armando Commando, was enraged and declared a cyber war on the DRWR. The Armored Federation shortly after launched Operation Hermes, in an effort to scramble DRWR intelligence. The war was later resolved by an armistice
