People's Commonwealth of Terra Silvae was founded on March 8, 2014. The founder of the soveriegn state, Archduke Morgan James Morrison presides as ruler over the commonwealth under a

Constitutional Monarchy. The capital city of Morrisopolis lies around 10 miles south of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA.


Terra Silvae is directly translated from Latin to English to mean "Land and Forest." The term land and forest comes from the abundant woodslands and beautiful nature within the Nation.  The first Archduke of the nation dubbed the state this on the day of establishment, March 8, 2014.


The People's Commonwealth was established on March 8, 2014 by The Archduke, Morgan James Morrison. The reason he decided to take property and secede from the United States of America was because he believed America had strayed from her original conservative values. Seeking to form a more perfect nation, he established Terra Silvae. The Silvaen Constitutional Conservative Party has remained in control of the government except for the Communist Uprising on May 1, 2014. The Nationalist Party won the civil war against the Silvaen Workers for Socialism Party on May 3, 2014 after three days of bloody fighting in the capital city Morrisopolis.

23 Silvaen National Guardsmen and the execution of 5 members of the Silvaen House of the People. The Communist Party overtook the government and instilled a totalitarian dictatorship. After 3 days, Morgan Morrison lead the Nationalist Army to overthrow the Communists resulti

ng in 177 causalities from both sides. Ms. "M" was tried by the Silvaen Courts for war crimes and insurrection and found guilty on 45 charges resulting in execution by lethal injection.

Lacking public support and needed funds the Silvaen military was abolished after the last reminance of the communist revolution was destroyed. A well regulated citizens militia defends against outside threats. Terra Silvae has never sought imperialistic gains using military and will continue in its isolationist practices.
