The Yam Republic is a micronation that exists on reddit. It currently has over 15,000 citizens


History

The Yam Republic was founded on April 1, 2017, as an April Fools Prank by The Mods of r/AskReddit. However, it soon escalated into a full-scale virtual micronation.

Origins

After the Start of the Republic, the Subreddit was a melting pot of Yam Memes and propaganda. Many posts were anti-other nations. At the beginning, the nation was isolationist and Xenophobic, but after the Great Rhubarb War, everything Changed,

Great Rhubarb War

The juice-shed that was the Three Days War began on only 4 days after the formation of the great Yam Republic. The Great War started on the 5th of April in the grand year of 12,017HE. It all began when the Rhubarbarian King rode his steed to our gates and declared the superiority of Rhubarbs. He offered forgiveness for those who defected, however there were no Yams who succame to his temptation. It took only hours for the people of the Yam to assemble for their future conquest. Even the two major divisions of the Great Church of Yam were able to work together. Thus began the assault. It began with the Surface to Air Yam bombardment. The missiles proved too much for the Rhubarbs, and most of their military was destroyed. Then the true assault began. Led by the 204th and the 501st the Yam assault was very impressive. The 204th was led by the great u/archie357 with the ultimate weapon, YamTron. His squad also consisted of the many volunteers and foot soldiers bombarding the enemy front with their Memeguns and Memenades. The 501st began their insurgical mission behind enemy lines. Their goal was to capture the enemy nursery and main supply houses. Our YamJets maintained air superiority but didn’t need to launch once, as the Rhubarbarians hadn’t learned to fly yet. Through all of this, the Rhubarbarian King turned and fled. His cowardice was like none other. During this period, there were many efforts for peace. The unbelievers refused all of them. So, it was decided that all of the young rhubarbs would be baptized as Yams. Our Yam Representatives Began the search for other allies and the formation of an official military.The juice-shed that was the Three Days War began on only 4 days after the formation of the great Yam Republic.

Yam Republic had been at war with the Rhubarb Kingdom for more than 6 harvests. The final battle however, was the more gruesome than all the battles combined. It was the spring of 2017, when Yam Republic had pushed to the capital for final strike, u/Archie357 (Grand Admiral of Yam Military) had pounded the shore line with compact shit-post rockets, flooding the frontline and allowing for a pincer attack from the south by the Grand Moff, Darth Yamicus (u/Conspiracycat1). As the assaulting parties managed to move into the city itself, the Rhubarb had taken to boiling Vegetable Oil in large cauldrons, the first wave of Yams died on entry. But numbers overwhelmed them,

as stated by an veteran of the war. The legions took out the overhanging gate and slaughtered the Rhubarb offense. Their bodies were flung into the inner city by means of trebuchet. The second legion attacked from the west led by Five Yam General u/Bluy98888, his strike force managed to push siege towers unto the walls. It took 2 centuries before the walls fell under Yam control. By then the Rhubarb had taken shelter in the inner city.

It seemed victory was at hand, but intel had not picked up on an recruited mercenary group from the carrot kingdom. These vegetables had been made into beasts, GMO Dna ran through their orange flesh. Some described them as unstoppable, but not the general. An system of vegetable cutters were set up above the aqueducts and as the Carrots made their way through the city they were cut down one by one.

The outer city had been taken, Citizens of the kingdom fought hand to hand against the Yam army on all sides, but they were cut down by the legion reinforcements. Soon the overall population had surrendered, all but the castle stood, held up by Ol'Rhubarb Half Hand. He swore death before surrender. That issue was soon taken care of however.

The last assault was led by the reinforcements and the 3 Leaders. Rhubarb Soldiers died one by one, it wasn't until the kings dear daughter was held at knife point would he give up. Ol' Half Hand was taken by prison cage to the senate in Yam Republic and sentenced to death by peeling.
