THE HISTORY, PART ONE:
THE NEW WORCESTER KINGDOM:
On August 2, 1998, a new and exciting micronation now
It was like none other
As is recorded in the first issue of the King’s Paper:
“Yesterday, August 2, 1998, Sunday, *********** founded a new
Micronation, infact, a new kingdom. It is called the New Worcester
Kingdom and ************
declared himself Prince ************** of Worcester. He is still a
crown prince because he is not
yet crowned. But he will be. This is the latest thing since the
Talossan Kingdom. What is this
brave beginning’s destiny? Only God knows.”
This was the New Worcester Kingdom, founded in Palmyra, New
York, in the United
States of America, but it’s spiritual heart was in Worcester,
England, where ************* was born on
*************** chose a simple flag. It had a blue rectangle in the
middle and a white
background. Above the rectangle was written ‘Rex ************ *************’.
Below the rectangle was
written ‘Regnum Worcesterum Novus’.
The following day, on August 3rd, the Scroll of Freedom was
written. This was a document proclaiming the independence of the New
Worcester Kingdom and upholding the rights
of all micronations to secede. W************, a friend of **************,
Prime-Chief. This was the chief executive position.
There were two official languages. The first was English, and
the second was a strange
constructed language called Babel. In Babel, the official name of the
Kingdom was Ela Nobu
Estur Kungi (The New Worcester Kingdom).
That same day, on August 3rd, ************ ****** ******** became a
citizen of the Kingdom.
On August 4th, Mark *********** became the fourth citizen and Nick **********
was appointed Secretary
of War. Around August 10th a new flag was adopted called the Old
Nwker or F-2A. It was just a
white flag with a yellow circular blob in the middle. It had the
letters NWK on it, which stood for
the New Worcester Kingdom.
This was an exciting time for the nation. A Constitution was
written from August fifth to
the eighth by Prince N************** and Prime Chief Will
***********. A website was built, on
http://members.tripod.com/~Klausjames/index.html about that same
On August the sixth, *********** ********** sent the following e-
mail, showing his obvious
confidence in the Prince:
Your Majesty, this is your Secretary of War reporting to you. We need
a person who can take the
job of bringing peace to our country! Our armies are working very
hard to keep the public from
being afraid of our outside enemies. We are but a peaceful nation,
but every nation, good or bad,
always has its ups and downs, sir, this is a time when our great
nation needs you the most.
Reporting out. Secretary of Defense-War, NAC.
(Thursday, August 6, 1998, 7:30 PM).
He is also reported to have said: “Your new means of
strengthening our nation is the
newest human evolution on our Earth.”
The Aerosmith Clan War:
NC, however, also believed we were under attack from
a non-existant nation,
called the Aerosmith Clan:
“I have frightfull news. Our Kingdom is under attack and we are
having some difficulty protecting
our kingdom. We are under attack by the Aerosmith Clan and have no
defense against their
He doesn’t go on to explain what weaponry we ‘have no defence
against’. This was the
most serious situation the New Worcester Kingdom had yet gotten into,
fighting a non-existent
On August 11, the Prince declared each province should have
it’s own consitution and on
August 12th, Ene Kunka was proclaimed the national anthem. It used
the tune of the Bhutanese
anthem but words written in Babel: Ene Kunka, And Yehoe, Kunka, And
Yehoe, Kunka, Ene
Regos, And Yehoe, Regos, And Yehoe, Regos, Regos, Regos, Regos, Den
oka nos Kunka, O!
Yula, yula, suri Kunko! Ripi oka oka noz suri, O! Ene Kunko, Kunko,
and Yehoe, And Yehoe,
August 12, the Kingdom joined the Grand Alliance, which is an
organisation. On August 15, we entered into an alliance with the
Federal Mayan Republic. A nasty
conspiracy arose, at this time, over whether or not the Aerosmith
Clan actually existed or not. If
the Secretary of War, Nick Crane, was proven to have lied about it’s
existence, then he might have
to face a dishonorable discharge from the military.
Also, another new flag was invented. It had a blue
background, with O’EY written on it,
so it was called O’EY-1.
Eventually, on August 17, 1998, the Aerosmith Clan was
declared to have been
destroyed. NC would face no charges, because it could not
now be proven whether or
not the Clan ever existed.
On August 21, e-mails were sent by the Prince to....
Eventually, it appeared that Nick Crane had had enough. An e-
mail was sent on August
23rd saying he’d quit. Later, he admitted it had been his brother
screwing with his e-mail. Another
flag, called the Nordic Nwk or Ncnk-4.00 was declared official.
Prince **************************** later declared that the Aerosmith
Clan and their home land
of Aerosmithia were inventions of NC, and that he’d destroyed
his own micronation. It
was decided, however, that he wouldn’t be punished.
An odd flag, called Mayan-1 or FMR-01 was declared the
official flag, in honour of the
ties of friendship between the New Worcester Kingdom and the Mayan
On September 1, the first 16 amedments were added to the
Constitution, and on
September 13, an addition eleven amendments were added.
Prime Chief William invented his own short-lived micronation
on September 5, called the
Kingdom of Danos.
The War of ONTES:
On September 13, 1998, Sunday, 2:59 PM, the New Worcester
Kingdom declared war on
the Kingdom of Landreth. It was all over the ridiculous refusal of
the Landreth Kingdom to let the
New Worcester Kingdom join ONTES (The Organization of Non-Territorial
States). The Federal Mayan Republic was an ally in this war against
Landreth. On October 1, the
war ended and peace prevailed. The New Worcester Kingdom had given up
(which showed that
we were brave enough to risk invasion!!! :)
Creation of the SPUM:
On September 19, the Treaty of SPUM was made, which
officially founded the Splendid
Micro-Union of Microstatia (SPUM). The Treaty was made between the
Kingdom of Danos and
the New Worcester Kingdom, who were the first members.
The Island of Islandia (founded on August 7, 1998), which was
ruled by King Alexander
Jemmima III signed the Terranic Agreement
with New Worcester
Kingdom. He agreed that the New Worcester Kingdom now owns the Island
of Islandia. This
conquest is officially known as the Islandou Conquesto. It was signed
on October 4, 1998.
A more permanent flag was then devised. It was called the
Justice Banner. It was a
rectangular flag with red on the top half and blue on the bottom
Mark Francis, who was an Esterite (citizen of the New
Worcester Kingdom), created
Markonia, which was his own micronation, on September 11.
In Issue 7 of the King’s Paper, it was announced that it
would henceforth be called
Cacansa Ester Paipaic (CEP) or Great Paper of Ester in the Vocatae
On October 10, 1998, the Law of Interkingonum was signed by
*************** and Prime Chief William ***********. It stated that if Prince
********** abdicates the
throne, then Prime Chief William would become King. However, Prince
************ could, at any
time he desired, reclaim the throne and King William would have to
abdicate. The law is in force
until August 2, 2025 A.D.
Carolyn Bridgewater then joined as the fifth citizen.
A Constitutional Congress was called on October 11th, for the
creation of a second and
On October 16, the United Micronations accepted the New
Worcester Kingdom as a
The War of Rocklokz:
Apparently, on October 18, a really big tree named King Old
Growth with the support of
the New Worcester Kingdom (through the Arborian Treaty of Alliance),
declared war on some
stones (for obstructing the peace in the Origo Colony). This war
became known as the War of
Rocklokz. Initially, nine rocks were captured, in the Battle of
Rockshaw (October 20). The
General of the rocks announced:
“I was only following orders! Our orders were to throw Ourselves at King Old Growth,
thus hurting him. I’m of the fourth division of the I-Rock army,
general class military commander
Stone. The whole I-Rock army consists of ten stones and pebbles. Our
allies, the Big-Rockies also
have ten soldiers. I don’t know about Our new ally, the Island of
Islandia, they’re a tricky bunch.
Anyway, as the only English-speaking rock here, ‘We of the fourth
division, SURRENDER to the
will and power of the New Worcester Kingdom’. There, I said it, I’M A
LOUSY TRAITOR, VIVA
These rocks were allies with the Island of Islandia.
Remember, that the Island of Islandia
gave all of it’s territory to the New Worcester Kingdom in the
Islandou Conquesto, through the
Terranic Agreement. The Island of Islandia obviously wanted revenge!
In the Battle of Big Tree, five rocks were captured. Princess
captured in the Battle of Vicktorstone. In the Battle of Hardrock,
one rock was captured. In the
Battle of Capturestein (October 25), the King of I-Rock/Big-Rock was
captured as well as three
others. A trial was called for King Oggk on the charges
of “treachery, defeat, rebellion,
unauthorized alliance, destruction of forests, obstruction of
justice, and meniachle acts against the
The War of Rocklokz ended with the Treaty of Inflatuations on
Parchment of Microstatia:
The eleven members of the SPUM, the New Worcester Kingdom
included, adopted the
Parchment of Microstatia on October 25, as the Constitution/Charter
of the SPUM. This was a big
step in the evolution of the micronational world. The SPUM took on a
new level of maturity.
Work on the Constitution:
Up to a point, the Constitutional Congress had been working
on the Articles of Esterite
Chiefdom (the new idea for a constitution). However, that was dumped
in favour of the Laws of
The Constitutional Congress ended and the Laws of New
Worcester became the official
constitution on November 22, 1998.
The first Faslexius (law-journal) of the New Worcester
Kingdom was written on
Leslie Bridgewater became the sixth citizen on November 4,
and ********** Proulx became
the seventh citizen on November 6.
On November 10, His Majesty, ********* declared that since
NC wouldn’t reply to
e-mails and was not worthy of his position, he was stripped of all
The Great Abdication:
Around this time, King ******** was trying to join the
Kingdom of Talossa. He abdicated
the Throne on November 26. Prime Chief Will became King William I,
the second King ever to
rule the Throne of the New Worcester Kingdom. Nick’s abdication
“My friends, this message goes forth to every Esterite
citizen. It is My sovereign duty to
say what I am now going to say. This is the saddest day in Our
Glorious History. Let this be
known in all Esterite sources of news and let every citizen know what
I shall say. Give alms to
what I speak so. I announce that I may soon be aloof of the New
Worcester Kingdom whilst still
editor of the CEP. I beg upon that thou all might be conversant with
Abdication is a hard thing to announce I’m afraid. Am I abdicating? I
groped around, and have
found my destiny. Abdication from Monarchy is the path that I choose.
As I wear my crown for
the last time, I am doubtful. What have I done in absolute benefit to
my micronation besides Its
formation? Prime Chief Will shall be a much better King.
There is little legislature on abdication, so I take it at My own
royal will. I saith now that I am
abdicated and that this document is approved. By law, the present
Prime Chief shall become King.
Hereby, William Beasley is King of all the land. I have found it
impossible to discharge my duties
as King, without a larger population than seven.
There is the serious problem of inactivity in this nation,
which I can not deal with. Am I
the only active citizen? It seams to be so. We are gathered here
today, in a time when this solidly
founded micronation is progressing at a phenomenal rate, and as the
Origo Seas flow in the rivers
of Our many colonies, as the flowers grow in the fields of Our
meadows, and the King sleeps in
the Babal Province, I shall be with you all. Let this day be forever
known as Abdication Day.
Celebrate this day every year and let it be a day of progress.”
Chelsea Erenstone became the eighth citizen and Celeste
Erenstone became the first
honourary citizen. On January 1, 1999, former King, ****************************, again joined
the New Worcester Kingdom after failing to join Talossa. He them made
a failed attempt to join
Penguinea, but he doesn’t hold a grudge against either of those
micronations. John Smith (Premer
Marx) became the ninth citizen on January 8, 1999.
On January 9, the Treaty of Empire was signed and the Kingdom
of Danos was annexed.
Final Defeat of Islandia:
The Island of Islandia finally was defeated!!! On January 30,
1999, the New Worcester
Kingdom paid the Island of Islandia $3 and the Islandic-Esterite
Covenant was signed. The Island
of Islandia was now a part of the New Worcester Kingdom.
The Great Inactive Period:
Thus we enter the Great Inactive Period. This is from 1999-
2000. The New Worcester
Kingdom seemed doomed for extinction. King William I wasn’t doing
much with it. Then,
***************** recieved a great idea on May 18, 2000. He
was now living in
England again, and had visited the actual City of Worcester once. He
decided that the New
Worcester Kingdom must be refounded. In the middle of the night, at 2
A.M., he worked out a
Preamble to a new Constitution.
The New Micronation:
It appeared necessary that the New Worcester Kingdom be
entirely refounded. It had done
a lot of things it probably shouldn’t of. It’s name had been stained.
It was inactive, and the King
was too busy to do anything with it. It was either refound or die!!!
The answer was clear, it had to
be refounded. Drastic action was necessary. So, ************************,
the original founder,
decided that on August 2, 2000 (the Two Year Anniversary of the New
Worcester Kingdom), it
would be refounded as ‘the Ancient Republic-Kingdom of Upper and
Lower Habakkuk in
Amon-Ra’. The ‘Articles of Eternal Union’ were written and
preparations made for the
refounding. This was an exciting time. It was as if a new micronation
was being born; and truly, it
