Riloia was founded on January 16th, 2010 as a free democratic republic mock micronation.
The flag has changed over the years. Here is a list of the dates of when each flag was established:
January 18th, 2010: The first flag is made as 2 purple stripes on a red background.
December 24th, 2011: The flag is changed to 4 yellow stars on a blue background.
April 3rd, 2013: The flag is now changed to 3 horizontal blue stripes on a purple background with a yellow circle in the middle.
August 16th, 2013: The flag is changed to it's current design, a large yellow star on a blue background.
Riloia owns 4 independent pieces of land, the main Capital Building which is the Ambassador's house, the Ambassador's grandmother's house, her front yard which is used for Clay River, and the back yard used for a simple park. Clay River is known as a small ditch carrying clay and was used up until December 27th, 2013, when all the clay was snowed over. Clay was a precious import but only lasted a short time and the river was abandoned shortly after. On October 5th, 2013, Ambassador Ryan Walker launched Operation Sovereignty which is a claim due to take place in 2026 to gain sovereignty of the 'French Southern and Antarctic Lands' & the 'Heard & McDonald's Islands'.
The government is very peaceful and consisting of 3 people, the Ambassador, the Vice-Ambassador who is the Ambassador's brother, and the Royal General who won an election but due to moving, had to step down from his presidential position.
Riloia owns it's own language called Riloian and the words are, at times, similarily sounding to Russian, but the Ambassador cleared this up by saying it is only a coincidence and that Riloia has no affiliations with the actual Russian language. There is also a version of the language but written out in Aztec-like characters. This is called Frotstan. The Ambassador is working on a Riloian dictionary and is also teaching online lessons. He said once, "I do think some words off the top of my head because I haven't translated ALL English words to their Riloian counterpart." He also stated in one of his online lessons that, "despite my age, I believe people should learn these artificial languages for the sake of education and fun." The Ambassador is only 13 but is still learning.
The military consists of only 2 people and for actual physical battles, they use airsoft guns. Of course, since this is a mock nation, there will never be any actual bloody wars or battles. The Ambassador stated, "I'm not using real weapons because this is for the sake of imagination and fun at times. I'm never going to engage in death of others because that's not what a micronation is about."
War with MongigelEdit
Riloia is currently in a war with it's enemy nation, Mongigel (pronounced mon-goal). The war usually just takes place in the Capital house and woods. The woods are planned to be claimed when the battle for it is over. On October 8th, 2013, Riloia ended the war after Mongigelian President Jack Morris shut down his military.
Law is like most countries, prohibiting any violence or non-violent threats. The Ambassador will be working on a law book and will be distributing it for download soon.
Riloia currently has one ally, the Principality of Bazion. http://www.theprincipalityofbazion.weebly.com

The government has only lately accepted travel but the rules are strict. You must be under 18 and a citizen of Chicago (where Riloia resides). You will be given a pat-down and then you will start your half-hour tour. The government does say that once the nation has developed, travel will be available nation-wide and probably world-wide.
