- History of the MicroWiki Community
- ↑ The Great Des Plaines Valley War began when Edward Oaches threatened to invade territories in the Rainbowlands in early 2021. On 5 March Edward led a coalition of militants and former terrorist, Jack O’rav to the Rodentian Federal Center in Sunrise, Rodentia. The president of the Republic of Rodentia, Sinlo Chambel was evacuated to Prarik then later Two Pine. Edward Oaches, Jack O’rav and a group of mercenaries then proceeded to overthrew the Rodentian Government and military.
- ↑ The Gayverian-Ausverian War initially began on 14 March 2021 after a majority vote in the Gayverian voting hall supporting the declaration of war against Ausveria. The declaration of war was initially met with confusion and humorous remarks from members of the Ausverian government.
- ↑ Conflict broke out initially when Reunited Ocean States declared war on the Great Lawl Reich on 31 January 2021, followed by the Aleunnic Workers' Republic's declaration of war. The Republic of Tueoedeth declared war on the Great Lawl Reich the same day, citing diplomatic disputes with the leadership of the Micronational Assembly at the time. Faltree issued an official declaration of war against Great Lawl Reich on 2 February 2021.
- ↑ On 28 April 2021, the apparent dissolution of the Dominion of Vancouver Island led to the Vancouver Island Soviet Socialist Republic to begin trying to re-establish itself. The dissolution of the Dominion of Vancouver Island led to the Commonwealth of British Dominions making a statement on 30 April 2021 calling the region "too unfit", formalizing the then mostly unrecognized claim on the island by the Dominion of West Canada. This action led the Vancouver Island Soviet Socialist Republic and the Greater Cascadian Republic to attempt to intervene claiming themselves as the correct claimants and owner of Vancouver Island.
