Westsylvania is a micronation founded on July 19, 2011 that borders the Eniarkian Confederation to the west, North Crawford to the north and the United States to the east claiming the Southern half of Crawford. The nation had a notable dispute between North and South which led to the secession of North Crawford and later the ongoing Westsylvania War. However, the nation itself seems to be a secessionist movement as the government has criticized the United States.
The micronation was founded on the land of Crawford County. But the Crawford County had some problems. Power was based on population and most of the population lived in Meadville. So that means that the county became a de facto monarchy. The rest of the people that didn't live in Meadville, angry at the Meadville power monopoly, formed a militia and captured Meadville. After capturing Meadville, Crawford County was renamed Westsylvania and declared independence both on the midnight of July 19, 2011.
North Crawford independence
The former head of the army of Westsylvania called Westsylvania "too corrupt to fix" and gained a positive response from his commentary in North Crawford. The Westsylvanian government, attempting to avoid a civil war, granted them independence however it would only be official on October 1, 2011.
The hostilities began with a capture of Townville. After that attack Westsylvania forces retreat to Fort Mich. Battles continues on the border while North Crawford tries to break Westsylvanian defences.
"The people have more power than the state. They also in charge of were dose the money go. Recently we have been spending in updating our military. The State is the body that enforces the laws and defense of the nation.
Now the people is in charge of the economic decisions. They also own the factories (Like Capitalism). But it differs from Capitalism in the way that the lack of classes. This means that the people money enters though a filter and the wealth is spread throughout the population (Like Communism). But because the people have more power than the government. That also means that the people are in charge of "splitting the pot"." - Mac Coat
The government holds little political power. Instead Westsylvania relies on the people in the nation to decide what the nation does.
When Westsylvania agreed to join the Dale Commonwealth one of the arrangements is that the Westsylvanian Army would be added under the control of the Dale Army. Westsylvania relies on a elite milita called the Westsylvania Territorial Guard, under control of the Dale Army since december 31st 2011. Even with the Westsylvania Territorial Guard being under control of the Dale Army Westsylvania still has on field command over the unit because of communication time gap between the Dale Army headquarters in Woking City and Westsylvania.
Westsylvania has a navy.
Westsylvania Navy annex Macadonia and Jamesistain. Macadonia is a peninsula in Canandaigua Lake. Macadonia has been heavy explored by the navy and annex. Jamesistain is a forest that is also on the lake. Jamesistain lightly explored and also annex by the navy. Jamesistain lacks a beach head so most trips to Jamesistain are over land from Macadonia.
