The Great States of O'Duighan, more commonly known as O'Duighan or just simply Duighan, is a micronation located in North America in the United States. It was founded by Harold Duighan, who is the current ruler, on Ede 37, 1900, and is run as a Cat People's Republic. The nation was dissolved on Ede 57, 1901. It was revived on Basemen 58, 1901, after Harold Duighan proclaimed that it was revived, which was caused by his own personal opinion and recent events regarding problems with the government.
The name of the nation was derived around a different spelling of Harold Duighan's last name. O'Duighan, or simply Duighan, is the Irish spelling of his last name, which Harold believed was a nice-sounding name, so he chose it as the name of his nation.
Before O'Duighan (1783 - 1899)
Before the Great States of O'Duighan, the territory was a part of the United States of America. The house that now seats the national goverment was built in 1783, (1901). It is located in North-Western Pennsylvania. However, Duighan settlers wouldn't come until 1890. Before that, the original ancestors of the Duighan people settled around South-Western Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and North-Western Pennsylvania. The first true Duighan person was Harold Duighan, the founder of O'Duighan, who was born in 1887, (2006), in South Carolina. Harold eventually came to the house in 1890, (2009), when he was 3 years old. O'Duighan was eventually formed on Ede 57, 1900 in a Minecraft server.
Colonial Era (Ede 10, 1899 - Ede 18, 1899)
The nation's origins begin with a colony, known as the Colony of Duighan, or simply the Colony. It was founded by Harold Duighan, when he was a construction worker in the Minecraft server of the Holy Empire of Jesus, which was ruled by Brett I, the Holy Emperor of Jesus. He began his stint in the Holy Empire when he was in his Computer class. He noticed his friend was playing Minecraft, and asked to join. Harold joined, and they both began building a city. Harold eventually got an idea, and suggested to his friend that he should form an empire, known as the Holy Empire of Jesus. Eventually, on the same day, Harold discovered a village while he was roaming in the woods, and declared it a colony of the empire, naming it the Colony of Duighan.
He was proclaimed the Colonial Governor, and he began to grow the colony, building railroads, homes, and even a trash disposal. However, things quickly turned south after a series of raids caused the population of the village to take a nose-dive, and it collapsed on Ede 18, 1899, with Harold resigning, and leaving the Holy Empire of Jesus.
The nation had seen a great amount of success in recent history, and was thriving. However, eventually it became stagnant, and bad government and inactivity began running rampant. Eventually, Vice President Simbach A. Vazo decided to suggest to Harold that he should try to make the nation more serious if he wishes to see this nation become successful. Harold Duighan eventually decided to begin the drafting of a new constitution. This would also lead to the nation being dissolved, and a provisional government being installed on Ede 57, 1901.
Politics and government
The nation originally began as Federal Republic from between Ede 37, 1900 to Basemen 42, 1901. It never had any elections in it's history until Ede 4, 1901, when the first free elections in the nation's history began. It began shifting towards socialist policies after it's re-founding on Sep
Law and order
The nation has no law enforcement, so it uses the Broom Regiment, which is a military unit of the Duighan National People's Armed Forces, to enforce laws and keep order. The only time laws ever had to be enforced was during an attempted coup on the discord server
