The Empire of Los Angeles replaced the Kingdom of Rosettia and became a constituent country of The States of New Canada upon the dissolution of the Kingdom. The Empire of Los Angeles was established on May 15, 2012. As of January 12, 2013 the Empire is no longer a constiuent country of New Canada.
Constituent Country of New Canada
The Empire of Los Angeles is the sole successor state of the Kingdom of Rosettia when it was dissolved by the Rosettian Accords on the 15th of May 2012. On May 23, 2012 King Ronnie enacted Executive Order 2 which dissovled the Imperial Army and claimed that the Empire shall remain neutral in all armed conficts unless attacked first. On the 22 of November 2012 the Imperial Congress met in a joint session behind closed doors and unanimously voted to enact the first amendment of the New Canadian Constitution and closed its borders to New Canada. On the 10 of December the Imperial Congress voted to disestablish the Assembly and rename the Council the Imperial Congress. On the 17 of December 2012 the Imperial Congress voted to end the meditative solitude that the Empire was in.
After being a constituent country of New Canada since its formation the Imperial Congress voted to declare independence on the urging of King Mendoza and the Crown Princess Sky. Independence was secured by only a close vote of the Imperial Congress. The Emire of Los Angeles after declaring independence from the States of New Canada isolated itself from the rest of the world and remained that way for a perod of time. After four months of isolation the Empire finally ended its isolation when it formally opened diplomatic relations with the Huro-Atlantica. The Empire later joined the Arcadian League, its first membership in a union since it declared independence from the States of New Canada. On the 18 September 2014 the Empire applied for admittance to the Henatan Commonwealth and was accepted on 15 October 2014. HH King Ronnie J. Mendoza on the 1 December 2014 after only a little over two and a half years on the throne announced his abdication of the throne. An easy and smooth transistion than occured as the Crown passed from HH King Mendoza to HH Queen Sandra "Sandy" Lee Sky. HH Queen Sky, after a session behind closed doors on December 10, 2014 with the ExO, Hand of the King, Princess Tiffany Mendoza, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, and Representative of the Imperial Congress agreed to dissolve the Empire of Los Angeles effective on December 15, 2014.
