The Republic Of Keig was established on August 13th and was formerly the Austrar Islands.


In November 2013 the Austrar Islands was formed, with only 2 citizens, the small micronation claimed a small part of Keig, a town in Scotland. Austrar Islands then had it's first president, Ben Gilmór, who did all the work to make sure that the Austrar Islands was known across the globe, and since has joined the micronational community and gained allies, recognition & affairs.

At December 2013 the Austrar Islands was fully established, with a flag, coat of arms & government, but there was a few problems as government members became interested in running their own micronations and then came the division of Keig. There was many different micronations who claimed independence from Austrar, Kaig, Vanobrasia, Alforr, Republic Of Arran, Rank Town & Vanconder. Some of the micronations who claimed independence are now defunct or states of Keig. The independence claimed that caused the most trouble was the Republic Of Arran who claimed independence from threatening the Austraran government by vandalism and invasion, but in February 2014 Republic Of Arran gave up and merged with Austrar.

Austrar Islands started claiming more land in May 2014 and was gaining it's first recognition from ally nations such as Smithville & Regency of Acrea. Austrar went onto host the Microvision 2014 but had been robbed of it's license to host the games after Mahuset claimed right to host the microvision, but never did.

The Republic Of Keig was created after Austrar Islands was abandoned. It now represents Austrar in events such as the 2015 Winter Microlympic Games or United Micronations. Technically Republic Of Keig was established in January 2014, but you could also say it was established in August 2014.

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 12th the Republic Of Nordén claimed Northern Austrar to be Nordenish clay, after negotiating the only thing that had came out of it was Keig declaring war on the republic of norden. Norden then invaded Fórdarhn and tried to invade Timorská, but were holded of by the Keigens. On September 1st 2014 the war ended after Smithville had defeated the militants to end the Independence War, some may argue that the war in Ethenville was part of the Independence Wars but there is no evidence of the war currently taking place.


The terrain of Keig 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 Keig 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.


A small hideout in Keig

Keig 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.

Keigen 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.
