The Confederation of Ushortaniom (Ushorton: smf pg fi nsddrd) commonly shortened as Ushorton, is a micronation located in the US state of South Carolina, roughly 30 miles southwest of the village of Buckleton-chelsea-birmingham-manchester-oxford-london-nottingham. It was formally founded as the Tetrarch of Ushorton, then the Principality of Ushorton and, to what it is now. Confederation of Ushorton was founded on July 21, 2006.
The Confederation of Ushorton was, until July 21 2007, a part of the United States of America. Displeased by the lack of political understanding of the American middle-class, four family members drew up the plan to secede from the US. Months of planning payed off when in the summer of 2006, the (then) Tetrach was established. Though a letter of secession was written, no formal reply was ever made.
- note: A Tetrach is a form of government when four persons rule equally.
As time went on, the balance of power seemed to keep swaying between the four Princes. Frustrated by the growing situation, the Governors voted for a single Prince. So on January 1, 2007 the oldest, Prince Samuel Mansard, was chosen. Since then, Ushorton grew tremendously. Acquiring twice the original land it once has and establishing a wildlife refuge.
On September 19, 2007 the Council of Governors and decided that the Principality would be reorganised into a Confederal Constitutional Monarchy system of government. The Prince still would be the head of state, but more powers shall be given to the individual to govern themselves but with some federal laws being enacted for the nation as a whole. This form of government closely resembles Thomas Jefferson's "Jeffersonian Era" in US History, when Jefferson wanted more power for the states.
The decision made by the Council was fully supported by the Union of North American Micronations.
