History

It is not exactly remembered when the Republic of Colina was proposed, but it is thought to have been proposed in February 2014. At that point the Republic was known as the Democracy of Orange. It was then known as Aliquam, then Auriaco, then Aurica, and then Morro. Unlike the other names, Morro stuck for a long time and then became a Principality and then became a Republic. However, one day in April, the Republic of Morro, which was then known as Morrovalia and later Morrocolina, was dissolved by President Di Legno. He then created the Republic of Colina. The Republic of Colina was dissolved later in April and became the Republic of Moroboro, and then Fresco. However, the Frescan Republic dissolved some time later in April more names were thought of. During this period, a friend of the President helped another friend create the Frambuesan Empire in response to the President's refusal to name the Republic "Frambuesa". The President responded by saying "Frambuesa will become a province of Colina". The Frambuesan Prime Minister responded by saying "Colina will become part of Frambuesa". The President responded by declaring war on Frambuesa. However, due to a lack of an army the war was never fought. Despite this, they were still friends and the Frambuesan Prime Minister is still a legal Colinian Citizen. On May 10th, 2014, President Gilmor of Austrar and President Di Legno had an agreement. President Gilmor ceded the land of Nova Collis (Then known as New Colina) to the Republic of Colina. On May 11th, 2014, Laaras, a former state of the UCS was ceded to Colina when the UCS surrendered its territory on the Fanning Island. The 3 members, President Anthony of the Cockatiel Empire, President Gilmor of the Austrar Islands, and President Di Legno of Colina were deciding who would annex the remaining territory. Colina annexed Laaras, Austrar annexed Kanja, and Cockatiel Empire annexed Jenkaja. On May 12, 2014 the Frambuesan Empire willingly surrenderred it's territory to the Republic of Colina. On May 28th, 2014, the Republic of Colina became the Empire of Colina, and later became known as the Colinian Empire. On August 27th, 2014, the Colinian Empire annexed Talan after the Republic of Keig ceded the territory to the Empire. On September 3rd, 2014, the Republic of Pacifious offered it's entire territory to the Colinian Empire, however annexation did not take place until September 5th, 2014. On September 5th, 2014, Independence Town on Fanning Island was claimed by Colina, due to the fact that no micronation laid a claim to it. On October 17th, 2014, Colina united most of it's Fanning Island claims into 2 colonies. South Fanning, and South-West Fanning. The Emperor declared that he had intentions of possibly uniting the South Fanning and South-West Fanning Colonies into a Constituent Country or Colonial Protectorate, similar to that of Pacifious. Later that day, the Emperor made a decision to turn it into a Colonial Protectorate. On October 19th, 2014, the Emperor legalized all Political Parties. On November 6th, the Colinian Empire changed its name to the Fiorilian Empire. On November 7th, the Emperor temporarily moved the seat of government to the British Leased Territory for 3 years. The reason being due to the Emperor's family moving to the United Kingdom for 3 years. On November 7th, due to what the Emperor considered an extremely tenuous hold on the Navarro Province, it was expelled from the Union back to the United States. On November 8th, the name was changed back to Colina. On November 16th, Colina was renamed Flodland. On November 22, Flodland was renamed Orange. On January 27th, the Emperor declared a national day of mourning due to the death of Colin Wyckoff. The Emperor also stated in an unrelated note that all members of terrorist groups will be declared enemies of the state.

National Anthem Lyrics

In these common lands

There lies a small nation named Orange

Built upon Freedom, Righteousness, and Justice


To escape from Tyranny and Totalitarianism


May Freedom Last Forever!


O’ Orange


Land of Opportunity


Free from Corruption


In the night, the corporates come to take our rights


They think they can buy our country


They will never buy out our land


May Freedom Last Forever!


The terrorists enter our country


To slit the throats of our people


They think of themselves as heroes


They will pay dearly for their villainy


May Freedom Last Forever!


When the enemies come to attack, we will defend ourselves


Our Rights


Our Freedom


Our Independence


To let our flag wave!


May Freedom Last Forever!
