The Archland Empire (known as Arkland in the country's native tongue) is an executive monarchy founded in 2011 by King Wallace the Great in his bedroom. The country has since expanded into an empire and been recognized by other micronations such as St. Annwells. Archland appears to have been inactive since 2014.
Archland Civil War
A notable episode in the history of the micronation was the Archland Civil War, which lasted from 2011 to 2012. The conflict began due to an attempt by the Duke of St. Annwells to have his land secede from Archland to start a new country.
The war comprised of two major battles. The first, known as the Battle of the Sleeping Bear (a metaphorical term indicating a powerful but previously passive entity that has now been roused to anger) took place when the Duke of St. Anwells first announced the secession. King Wallace ordered troops to occupy St. Anwells and stay in a defensive position waiting for an attack, which took place on 25 August 2011. The opposing army was no match for the superior Archland Army under the command of King Wallace, with the battle a decisive victory for Archland and numerous military decorations being awarded.
The second battle of the Archland Civil War, the Battle of St. Annwells, took place on 16 April 2012 when King Wallace, tired of the stalemate in the war, launched a huge attack on St. Annwells' capital, Cooperstown. However, having underestimated the strength of the rebels, the battle resulted in a victory for the Republic of St. Annwells. On 28 April 2012, a peace treaty was signed ending the war and granting St. Anwells independence from the Archland Empire.
On 1 May 2013, Archland proposed a treaty of military alliance under which St. Annwells would become a protectorate of Archland.
