The Most Imperial Principality of Georgeton (formerly the United Kingdom of New Britain and Georgeton and the Most Glorious and Imperial Duchy of Georgeton ) is a micronation originally founded as the Duchy of Missouri in late November 2010, but later renamed to the Duchy of Georgeton. The official language is English and the official currency is eltons. The Kingdom mainly consists of farmland with only some land located in cities. It was formerly a constituent state of the North American Confederation. It was formally reorganized as the United Kingdom of New Britain and Georgeton on January 30th 2011. It was a permanent member of the Freedomian Commonwealth. It fell inactive shortly after it joined the commonwealth and was recreated into the Most Glorious and Imperial Duchy of Georgeton and then turned into the Most Imperial Principality of Georgeton.

Later, effective December 25th, 2011, the Most Imperial Principality of Georgeton was consolidated into the Empire-Republic of Freedomia, and became a Monarchy-style province. This was announced to the entire micronational community. It was pacifically dissolved into the Dukedom of Rockforth in the Nation of Burnham.

History

Early history & The United Kingdom

The Nation was originally founded as the Duchy of Missouri in late November 2010 and did not do anything consequential until mid January 2011, when it changed its name to the Duchy of Georgeton, and declared war on the Slinky Empyre. This resulted in Georgeton being declared war on by the Kingdom of Istoria, Montosh Empire, and the Republic of Ultamiya, and the Peoples Republic of Richland joining Georgeton's side, along with the United Kingdom of Carlington. This conflict was later re-named the Slinky War. On January 30th 2011 it merged with the Kingdom of New Britain to form the United Kingdom of New Britain and Georgeton. This nation was a State in the Freedomian Commonwealth during its inactivity.

Revival

In June 2011 it was revived into the Most Glorious and Imperial Duchy of Georgeton by Dakoda George with a new government.
