Over the course of history the kingdom has had many successors, including its successor state the Kingdom of Pashema. The Crowned Republic of Pashema was founded November 6th, 2015 as a parliamentary republic with a limited monarch. Pashema is also one of the last remaining members of the Youtube Community.
Greater Pashema's history extends over a three year period and is fraught with changing governments and political unions with other micronations.
Pashema was founded May 8th, 2011 and remained independent until August 24th, 2011, when the original concept of a political union known as Utopia emerged from Monovia. Harry Fitzpatrick proposed the idea and Pashema officially joined Utopia, along with Monovia and Lurk in 2011.
Utopia was disestablished and re-established twice before May 18th, 2012, When a Skype convention between the original founders of Utopia occurred, all of which decided to continue Utopia. This time the union was founded under the name the United Provinces of Utopia and was deemed a confederation, contrary to the Utopian federations of the past.
A week after establishment, the United Provinces of Utopia slowly started to become more defunct, the Utopian legislators focused more on combating each other rather than the good of Utopia and the system came to a grinding halt. During the summer of 2012 Pashemanian officials attempted to revive Utopia through the recruiting of potential provinces, namely Asermia, Spanionte and Balmex. This attempt was futile and only resulted in more disputes in the Parliament of Utopia. These disputes carried on despite the attempts by Erasmas Underwood, an independent observer of Utopia, to end them.
Monovia succeeded June of that year, due to their representative Harry Fitzpatrick not having saw the progress he expected from the union. Inactivity carried in to late September until Pashema finally succeeded and left Lurk the only remaing province of the United Provinces of Utopia. Karl Friedrich the representative from Lurk decided not to dissolve the nation but rather continue it as an Intermicronational organization, where members retain full sovereignty.
Rise of Nationalism
After becoming independent from the fourth and last Utopia in late 2012. Pashema retained the status of "Post-Utopian Republic". A provisional government was formed but faced the same challenges as the Utopian parliament. Pashema experienced inactivity until an army general, Andrew Flinn, inspired a cultural revolution on May 26th, 2013 with a photo he had taken of himself defacing a Utopian flag.
The photo spread to every citizen of Pashema and caused a surge of national identity. Pashemanian's fomed cultural organizations and businesses and as a result there was an economic boom. For the first time in the history of Pashema, Pashemanian's identified themselves not as members of a union. The Rise of Nationalism as historians call it contributed greatly to Pashema's culture and economy and would eventually lead to the foundation of the republic.
The provisional government had governed almost a year by early 2013 and at the discretion of the people had agreed to step down. The last act of the provisional government was a referendum to decide the new political system.
Several ideas were proposed but the idea of a republic was introduced by former Utopian representative Gavin Wetmore, who personally spearheaded the republican movement. The referendum reuslts were strikingly in favor of a Pashemanian republic and the movement gained a victory. An election followed the referendum, Gavin Wetmore was voted President of Pashema and Andrew Flinn was appointed Minister of Defence for his contribution to the nation.
The Republic of Pashema remained content until early 2014 when dysfunctionality became increasingly apparent. President Gavin Wetmore battled with the demands of Pashemanians and still lead a government that lacked a constitution.
After much consideration the decision made by the Government of Pashema on October 15th, 2014 was to dissolve itself and return to the proper institutions of the past. Thus the Kingdom of Pashema was born.
