The land of the Secundomian sector had been through much change before it's micronational inception. Originally the land was controlled by native american tribes in the great plains. The area was passed through the hands of multiple european countries before becoming part of the United States of America. The land was reassigned into the Territory of Kansas, which eventually became the State of Kansas. The Secundomian Sector land area was fought over in the Civil War between Kansas and Missouri. Kansas won over the area. With Kansas controlling the area, one of the first micronations was reported operating in Johnson County in January 2009. The Kingdom of Coleraine (hUlaidh Thair Nhua) is the first micronation reported operating in the area, besides Uantir in Leavenworth County. In a peroid approximately in the middle of 2009 Parker I, who would become the founder of the Kingdom of Secundomia, first read of micronations on wikipedia. He did not consider too deep into the venture, however.
The era preceding the adoption of presidents was an era of chaos in the Republic of Secundomia. It began with the decision to found micronations.
Decision Period (December 12-13, 2009)
[[File:Aericaflag.jpg|thumb|Secundomia was inspired by the Aerican EmpireThe idea for Secundomia began on December 13, 2009, when Parker I and Spencer I were inspired after reading about micronations such as the Conch Republic, Molossia, and the Aerican Empire. At first they planned on joining Aerica, but Spencer suggested that they create their own micronation.
Pre-Republic Period December 14-15, 2009
The Pre-Republic period is the first time Secundomian Sector micronations began to appear. These two nations, the Republic of Skillz and the Kingdom of Secundomia, were both formed by Spencer I and Parker I.
Spencer was the first to found a nation, the Republic of Skillz, on December 14, 2009. Spencer founded Skillz on the playground of his elementary school. Spencer I was quickly made president and at its peak, it had six citizens.
Parker I was not told of its existence until the next day, shortly before the founding of the Kingdom of Secundomia on December 15.Parker I founded Secundomia as a reaction to the Republic of Skillz, and planned to declare war on Skillz. Parker had planned to found Secundomia with Spencer on December 13th, however, he was waiting until he had come up with a suitable name. War was declared on the 15th before Spencer had returned from school. When Spencer returned, Parker was informed of Skillz's collapse.
Merger Period December 15-17 2009
The Republic of Skillz collapsed on December 15 and its two remaining citizens merged with the Kingdom of Secundomia, to form the Republic of Secundomia the next day. Secundomia grew to a population of six but the state of Halstopia left the nation on December 18 with all its members. American lead was restored shortly after in Halstopia.
Post Merger Period December 17-31 2009After the fall of Halstopia, rivals Parker I and Luke of Secundomia struggled for power and Secundomia was caught in the middle.
Early Republic Era
Split Presidential Period January 2010
After huge fights during the first elections of Secundomia, Luke and Parker I decided to split presidency, and became co-presidents. In the January 2010 Secundomian elections, the fight between Parker I and Luke grew stronger, as Skillz founder Spencer I and Parker ran on a joint ticket for co-presidency. Luke fought a tough battle claiming that Spencer and Parker were attempting to run a dictatorship but to no avail as Parker I and Spencer I won the elections. Luke alleged that this was simply because Secundomia was full of Spencer's friends but the new presidents denied the claim.
Brothers Period January 31st, 2010-February 25th
During this period, both Parker I and Spencer I ran the nation. Amid disputes from Luke as to who was the actual leader, they were able to pass a large amount of legislation due to their close correspondence. Parker I lead most of the discussions in the nation, while Spencer provided a balance between his side of the nation and Parker's, which before were in conflict. Midway in February Luke and Parker formed an alliance, thereby unifying all three branches of the nation. A resolution was signed by the two presidents of Secundomia stating that after the next elections, only one president would be allowed power. Spencer I and Parker I both ran for president in these elections. According to Spencer, Parker I had lost favor due to being president for a long time. Spencer's voting block heavily weighed in upon Spencer, despite a possible schism as Ibrahim I ran Independent. Spencer was declared victor.
Golden Days (Late Brothers Period) February 25th 2010-March 4th 2010
Restructuring Era March-April 2010
Spencerian Period March 2010Secundomian Congress. After a short dispute with the leader of Atlan, Atlan was redefined as a separate nation, geographically and culturally distinct from the Republic of Secundomia. Another yet-to-be-named state was put in it's place for the leader of Atlan to maintain presence in Secundomia. As a presidential collaboration with Parker I, Middle Secundomia annexed Pine County, Long County, Snow Hill County and Backwoods County, located to the south of Middle Secundomia city. The March elections took place, and the formerly loyal Spencerian voting block split it's votes among Luke and Parker I. The reasons for this may have been public disapproval of Spencer I's policies. Ultimately, Parker I received the most votes from every voting block, and took power in April.
Cabinet Crisis April 2010
Main article: Cabinet Crisis (Secundomia)
When Parker I appointed his presidential cabinet, he caused unsettlement among citizens about his choices. Eventually, Parker I was pressured into changing the decisions but some citizens, including Ibrahim I, were still not content. Ibrahim's protests got violent, and allegedly violated Secundomian Law. Parker I prosecuted Ibrahim, and put him on trial, the first trial in Secundomian history.
After the trial of Ibrahim I, an inactive citizen, the Empress of Atlan, returned to activity and defended the President. The Protest Group began harassing her. Many of Protest sympathizers began to grow distrustful of the Protest Group. These sympathizers now aligned themselves with the president. They included Spencer I and Luke of Secundomia. The Protest Group began targeting them as well.
As the harassment began to grow worse, many of Secundomia's citizens, including the President and Citizen's Council, voted to exile Protest leader Rahim I temporarily. Ibrahim I was given a warning. Soon Ibrahim and Rahim both apologized.
