Wiki being overhauled by the Cascadian Government excuse the mess

Overview

The Republic of Cascadia is a mega-nation that occupies territory in the western and northern portions of North America. The Republic is one of the oldest nations in the server, and the oldest nation that practices democracy.

History

Early History

Before the nation of Cascadia was founded, there was the town of Astoria. Founded in the Beginning era, on November 26th, it is the oldest surviving town in the Pacific Northwest. Although Cascadia did not exist in the first few weeks, the idea was already conceptualized. The founders envisioned the birth of a democratic nation that would unite the region. Thus sparked the creation of Cascadia

December Beginnings

Formation of a Nation

Cascadia was a four-way creation between the players RangerMK01, Banthos, Kathulos, and Think Geek. Because the cost of nations was cheaper during the inception of the server, it took only a short while to acquire the materials. After a few days of raising funds for the nation, its founding members had enough to create Cascadia.

The capital was initially intended to be Olympia, but Banthos, the mayor, was accidentally banned after he was falsely accused of doxxing. And so, the nation of Cascadia was founded on the 11th of December, 2018, by RangerMK01, with its capital in Astoria.

Creation of a Discord

The newly made nation needed a discord server, and one was created. The first message was by Morthalis, at 09:15 PM, Dec 11th, "Long live Cascadia!". The discord quickly grew, including the mayors of the towns, as well as the other national leaders.

January Expansion

Growth of Cascadia

Other nations such as California, which had been founded the month before, dominated the area South of the nation. After a few days, however, it became apparent Cascadia was outpacing its neighbor California, to the dismay of No_Jewtsu, the leader of the nation.

California suffered its own issues that month, with the succession and break-away of nations such as Arizona, and the towns of Lompoc and San Diego as well.

February

SalC1 Gold Duplications

In a video by Minecraft YouTuber SalC1 published on the 14th of February, he traveled to Astoria to inflate the economy by duplicating and distributing gold while using an invisibility potion. The many stacks SalC1 gave out caused confusion among the several players online at the time.

One of SalC1's victims was Code456, founder of Port Angeles. Another was Hack3ermann, a founding member of Cascadia. CodeNameW and Silent_Dirt were also given a stack of gold blocks.

Rapid Growth

Through the summer of 2019, Cascadia underwent rapid growth. It admitted several new districts over a short span of time and expanded both its landmass and its political influence several-fold.

August Collapse

Second New York Riot

On the 9th of August, 2019, a riot broke out in New York, which at that time was a member district of Cascadia. Owners of plots in highly trafficked areas of New York enabled PVP and began a killing spree which led to the deaths of many players who showed up to participate in the New York riot, which later came to be known as the "Second New York Riot". The crowds later dispersed and the riot came to an end.

Trial of UnbatedAura & Captainb4

On 11 August, two days following the Second New York Riot on the 9th, the users involved in the mass killings in New York were identified as Captainb4 and UnbatedAura. A trial was held in the Supreme Court of Cascadia (Cascadia v

UnbatedAura and Captainb4). The court found both of these players guilty of murder and inciting violence and both were required to pay a fine to the state as instigators. The trial was presided over by OreoToast.

Overextension & Collapse

Following the trial, many leaders of Cascadia's newly admitted districts & territories felt that the Government of Cascadia had overstepped its powers in prosecuting Captainb4 & UnbatedAura. This led to a cascading effect of many districts leaving Cascadia, including all of Cascadia's east coast territories and a number of southwestern territories.

The Great Cascadian Schism

In late August 2019, the Republic of Cascadia underwent a fracturing of the internal government, with a breakaway sect looking to establish Cascadia as an empire. This breakaway sect has led to an internal crisis with two factions of supporters supporting both the establishment of a Cascadian Empire and the continued existence of the Republic of Cascadia.

After 2 days of a tense standoff between the two sides, the breakaway "empire" sect stood down and returned control of Cascadia to those loyal to the republican government.

October Accomplishments

BonZzil's Second Term

After being given a second term by the majority of citizens, BonZZil aimed to revive Cascadia from its state of inactivity after the August Crisis. During October Cascadia slowly started regaining activity and reviving, taking in several new towns.

Towny Glitch

On the 4th of October, the towny plugin had a glitch where several nations were accidentally disbanded. The cause of it is unknown, but it would disband a nation whenever a single person left or was kicked from the capital town. Cascadia was hit first, along with Florida and South Australia.

Decline of Alaska

After the Summer of 2019, the province of Alaska was falling into inactivity. There were offers to integrate it into Kodiak, which was prospering much more. Alaska collapsed as a province in late 2019, with Incarnation__ leaving altogether.

Ranger's Reforms

On the 31st of October, RangerMK01 returned to Cascadia to help with the nation as it was suffering major inactivity and collapse. Some major changes were made to the discord, such as the deletion of the Secretary of Recruitment role, removal of the district general channels, and the remaking of the senate proposals channel.

November Quiescence

UnbatedAura's Presidency

UnbatedAura came into the presidency with the aim of restoring Cascadia to its former glory. On the 12th, Dictio went through his probation period and became senator of Amarok. The town of Sugarcane also joined on the 15th.

Vice President OreoToast's Plans

On the 22nd of November, OreoToast announced some plans for the interim presidency, such as establishing Astoria as a proper federal city, ensuring an effective balance between the Mayor and the President, expanding usage of the National Bank of Cascadia building, returning national gold reserve to the towny banks, fixing road signs in the Astoria area, re-organizing district structure such that it is easier to understand the structure of Cascadia as a whole, granting Bhutan status as "Overseas Territory" with the consent of the Senate, going over Astoria's main shop street and gutting any inactive shops, commission houses for Astoria's residential district, finding an effective way to get feedback from the frontier towns to know what they need, creating a non-departmental committee for Parks & Recreation, finishing the National Defense Department headquarters facility, recognizing GGOVI & Yaznayu as enemies of the state, and maybe making in-game books effort to document Cascadia.

Port Angeles Population Growth

During November, Cascadia underwent a small population boom as Senator and Mayor Estonian_Mapping started the mass recruitment of players into Port Angeles, bringing in many new players, and inviting his friends onto the server. LawofRence and thebigjeff2111, who both knew Estonian_Mapping, joined the server too. This led to Port Angeles becoming the largest Cascadian town, with metropolis status and 42 members at its height.

Replacement of the Vice President

On the 16th of November, UnbatedAura announced that he was replacing BonZzil, who was vice president. He declared that the vice president was no longer fit for office as he had broken the law and restricting UnbatedAura from performing his duties as president. The new vice president was OreoToast.

Mt. Rainier Joins

The Town of Mt. Rainier, owned by thegamingsquirel, joined Cascadia on the 28th of November, and slowly grew in size. It was reluctant to join the nation at first but Estonian_Mapping an Spleenbeaned convinced them to. Mt. Rainier would remain part of Cascadia until it created the Pacific Republic.

Road and Highway Plans

On the 21st Barbay1 declared that Cascadia's Department of Development would need to have a meeting on the issue of roads of highways and roads, and then do a presentation to the Cascadians on the state of the methods of transport. She also stated that Cascadia needed to write down Cascadian road requirements, like what material and what height, so that citizens know how to correctly build them.

December Anniversary

Barbay1's Presidency

After Barbay1 won the December Presidential election, she began promoting the use of international highways and events such as the World Expo. Shop policies were also renewed. In tandem with the new plans, the new government was intended to be more transparent than its predecessors. On the 5th of December, OreoToast resigned as Secretary of Defense, being replaced by Estonian_Mapping, who quickly transforming and upgrading the Cascadian Military. On the 6th, Barbay1 replaced KingBerman with BonZzil, as KingBerman was no longer in the nation.

The Transferral of Athabasca

On the 6th of December, OreoToast had the nation of Athabasca transferred to him in hopes of increasing the overall productivity of the nation. The district of Athabasca was dissolved as a district of Cascadia, and OreoToast made a deal with Rudolf_Hoess, which stipulates that if he is to become active on EMC again, he shall have the nation transferred to him and the district restored.

OreoToast held roughly 2/3 financial stake in the in-game towny nation of Athabasca as he personally helped fund one-third of the cost of the nation, and had the backing of one of the other major investors. Rudolf_Hoess was somewhat inactive on EMC and OreoToast deemed that his plans for Swanavon & the capital of Athabasca were somewhat difficult if not impossible to achieve with the extended outage of sign shops.

As a result of all this, OreoToast declared the founding of the Kingdom of Haida as a sovereign and independent nation as a member of the Pacific Commonwealth. OreoToast stated that "this is not a fuck you to Cascadia". Haida would remain independent until February.

Republic Day Celebrations

To celebrate the founding of Cascadia, a celebration was decided to be held on the 14th of December. Fireworks, Banners, and even a Flea Market was prepared. Dispensers and other Redstone contraptions were made for the fireworks, and Christmas ornaments decorated the capital building. A festive spirit hung about Astoria. Barbay1 set up a secret Santa event, where citizens would give anonymous gifts to other citizens using hoppers.

Flea markets were set up at 3:30 (PST), and finally, the celebrations took place at 5:30, with Barbay1 and Estonian_Mapping delivered speeches, and fireworks were set off. At 5:45, Blackjack Casino events were held until late into the night.

Republic Day Speech

State of the Union Adress

Battle of Astoria

On the 13th, Rupert Land's citizens 754 and 268 raided the Cascadian Capital of Astoria. Members of the Cascadian Military such as durablecandy, spleenbeaned, and thegamingsquirel were present. The Rupert's Land citizens used flame bows, but President Barbay1 put up emergency showers around the capital. The battle ended with at least one Cascadian casualty.

First Battle of Autumnshire

On the 14th, several attacks were carried out by Rupert's Land's military, in order to sabotage Republic Day. A minor skirmish was fought at 8:45 PM, PST. 754, leader of Rupert's Land, harassed and threatened Autumnshire, including using melee and explosives to kill three Cascadian Citizens. After Iron City and Cascadian Reinforcements arrived, 754 retreated, technically resulting in a victory, although the final death count stood at 3-0, with Rupert's Land taking no casualties.

Battle of Iron City

At 9:40 PM PST, Iron City was attacked in the Battle of Iron City. The Cascadian Military only managed one soldier versus the opposing 7, but many brave soldiers and civilians lent a helping hand. Even with overwhelming odds, Cascadia managed to kill some of the invaders. Cascadians had a harder time reinforcing the walled city, as the ice roads leading to it were either nonexistent or in severe disrepair. Cascadia suffered 2-3 more casualties while inflicting 2 casualties on Rupert’s Land. Even President Barbay1 was spotted on the battlefield. Cascadia scored a hit on Rupert's Land, however, when 754 was killed in the conflict. His god armor was displayed in Iron City.

Second Battle of Autumnshire

Another battle took place at Atumnshire later that day, this time with the full force of the Rupert's Land military. There were approximately 10-12 soldiers from Rupert’s Land against approximately 5-7 from Cascadia. Many casualties were reported, mostly on the Cascadian side, but Cascadia held the line, preventing Rupert's Land from getting a firm hold on the city. Rupert's Land eventually retreated, ending the battle.

Barbay1's Boycott

On the 20th of December, 2019, Barbay1 called for a Boycott against Hyperion Enterprises, RangerMK01's multi-nation corporation. She claimed that the independent and sovereign nation of Hyperion had sabotaged peace talks with Rupert's Land by selling materials to them. Barbay1 also condemned RangerMK01 for not removing old Cascadian members in the cabinet(most notably the people she disagreed with on various topics regarding the nation), as he said that he "Valued friendship more than some dumb discord roles". This argument, along with other actions taken by Barbay1 eventually resulted in her being impeached by the senate, with the presidency going to Beepsky.

January Restoration

January Election

After proving his ability by reviving Port Angeles and making it the largest town in Cascadia with 42 members, Estonian_Mapping announced that he was running for president on the 3rd of December, 2019. He won by a landslide, beating his opponent UnbentGODFATHER.

Raid on Port Angeles

In early January, soldiers from Rupert's Land spawned in Cascadia and journeyed to the neighboring town of Port Angeles. These soldiers used lava buckets to set livestock on fire. The town lost many chickens and sheep. A warning was issued by Cascadian President Estonian_Mapping, and no further incidences occurred.

End of the Rupert's Land War

On the 10th of January, Estonian_Mapping made a white peace with Rupert's Land, ending the three-month-long war. This was the result of the Northwestern Syndicate making up fake news, and the leader of Rupert's Land exiting politics. The white peace allowed the construction of roads and infrastructure to continue without attacks from Rupert's Land. On the 13th, the Northwestern Syndicate was disbanded.

Cascadian Re-Expansion

During Estonian_Mapping's January term, he launched a fundraising event, raising 500 gold for the Cascadian Government. In the first few days in office, he agreed to a white truce, ending the long conflict with Rupert's Land. After Slave's decline, he even managed to incorporate two Slave towns, Trout Lake and Fort Navington into the Cascadian province of Yukon. Estonian_Mapping also purchased a beacon, which would be used to easily develop Cascadia.

During his term, the town of Wenatchee was created on the 11th of January, Oceantopia on the 15th, and Winthrop on the 22nd. The province of Ontario acquired a new town,“PLEASE WELCOME THE TOWN OF NORTHBERRY TO ONTARIO AND CASCADIA” announced Senator Cyberstorm. At the end of his January term, two provinces, Haida and Vanuatu joined Cascadia. Cascadia also constructed several sections of infrastructure, such as Jefferson Square and the Port Angeles/Astoria Ice Line. On the 31st, Estonian_Mapping made the secretary of recruitment a cabinet position, with Vorobyevite being the secretary. This would help increase the population of Cascadia.

War on Michigan

On the 25th of January, Virginia declared war on Michigan, bringing the American Order into a war with Michigan as well. Although Cascadia saw little to no action against Michigan, Ontario, which borders it, was threatened by the nation.

Battle of Ontario

On the 25th, the Cascadian Military was called to respond to an attack on the town of Northberry and Superior, Ontario. Several citizens from Mortician City, Zerena, raided the iceways between the two cities. 3-4 Ontario citizens were attacked by 2 Zerena soldiers. One of the soldiers, thecactusjarod, lured LawofRence and thebigjeff2111, the two responding Cascadian soldiers called by Governor Cyberstorm. The Zerena soldiers employed TNT warfare and melee criticals to kill the Ontario defenders, and knocking the others into the water, and quickly dispatching them. Eventually, the united Cascadian and Ontario force outnumbered the opposing force, and they were pushed to Northberry, where HelloGaming123 and others were building. The Zerena citizens quickly retreated, using the highways to escape.

President Estonian_Mapping and the Cascadian soldiers communicated with thecactusjarod, and were told that they were using the highways for transport, although they had been carrying explosives. Estonian_Mapping retrieved the armor that was lost by the Cascadian military. Final casualties were 3 Cascadian soldiers to 1 Zerena citizen.

February Crisis & Salish-Washington War

The Washington Split

Due to growing tensions between the President of Cascadia, Estonian_Mapping, and former President and Governor of Washington, BonZZil, the province of Washington left the Republic of Cascadia to join the Republic of the Rio Grande on February 6, 2020. What followed was a brief moment of anxiety within the state government that Washington would be on the attack. Though the government decided to keep a level head the province of Ontario called for war against the Rio Grande. Their refusal to listen to the state government led to their departure from Cascadia. BonZzil has since claimed that Estonian_Mapping "insisted on making government problems personal" and that he was still loyal to Cascadia, leading him to attack citizens of Salish, which he saw as "lying usurpers" as he said in an EMC Live interview.

Ontario Successor

On the 7th of February, 2020, Governor Cyberstorm of Ontario declared that he would be passing on his leadership to President Estonian_Mapping, leading to the presidency passing on to Vice President LawofRence. This caused some controversy among senators as the passing on of the Presidency was undemocratic and did not adhere to the Constitution. Eventually, this led to the succession of the Salish Federation.

The Salish Federation Secession

On the 9th of February, 2020 communications between town leaders were leaked by KingBerman after the controversy of LawofRence's candidacy, and the towns involved seceded from Cascadia to form a new nation, The Salish Federation. The Salish Federation has claimed it was created in response to interference in the Cascadian democratic system by former and foreign members, along with a failure of effective governance within the Presidential administration. They were quickly denounced by the Government as traitors and charged with treason, a charge which was originally intended to be tried by a tribunal. Most of the players that were charged with treason outright refused to participate in a trial, including the highest-ranking leaders of the revolt. The leak led to the Salish Federation seceding in revolt with a total of six active towns and two separate nations, beginning an ongoing conflict to current time that has come to be known as the Salish-Washington War. Shortly afterward, the Cascadian Province of Haida, which had just been re-admitted to Cascadia less than a week earlier, also declared independence in solidarity with the Salish Federation. 

Escalation of Conflict

Soon after the secessions of the Salish Federation & Haida, BonZZil, leader of Washington, which had declared independence on its own earlier in the week started attacking Salish, sometimes accompanied by others, most often alone. While there has been no publicly stated motive for the original skirmishes between Salish and Washington, it has been suggested that BonZZil had intentions of expanding Washington into territory now held by the Salish Federation.

Salish & Washington continually exchanged skirmishes throughout the early days of the conflict. A major escalation occurred on 19 February when Haidan forces were detected by Cascadian government reconnaissance mining the border of the Salish Federation & Washington. Internal confusion led to the belief within the Cascadian government that Haidan forces were mining roads with military offensive intent against Cascadia. After being asked if he had approved the mining of Cascadian roads, Salish President Vorobyevite claimed such actions were not taken against Cascadia. When a screenshot containing Vorobyevite allowing OreoToast to place mines on the border were leaked, Salish said that it was fair game if the mines were not in the Cascadian border. It was later confirmed that no mines were placed in Cascadian claims, or with intent to take offensive action against Cascadia. However, some mines were found by the Moscow Temple, a Cascadian national monument, but it is unclear who placed these mines by the temple.

The mining incident had wide-reaching negative public press within Cascadia. Many members of the public reacted strongly to the initial news of Cascadia potentially being dragged into the ongoing conflict. It was widely believed that the government's response to the incident would have reverberating effects on the election held at the end of February. 

The civil war continued to escalate as February came to an end with the first full-blown battle between the armed forces of Salish & Washington occurring on 26 February.

Russian Coalescence

On February 25th, Commie Queen offered to join Cascadia to aid its stability. He offered four conditions, several of which were denied, but he joined with the province of the USSR and Greater Russia anyways. This decision nearly doubled the citizens under the Cascadian rule.

March Turmoil

Gold Disappearance

At the end of Estonian_Mapping's term, he left EarthMC altogether, leaving the rule of his many discords and the Cascadian capital of Astoria to his friends and associates. His Vice President, LawofRence was given control of the nation. He discovered that all the gold from the national bank, numbering at the time about 700. After some investigation, Mihailovic discovered that Estonian_Mapping had withdrawn it all before leaving, using around 200 of it to add to Astoria claims. He said that all the gold in the bank was raised by him. A proposal was passed shortly thereafter, preventing the withdrawal of such large amounts of gold. 

UnbentGODFATHER's Presidency

After UnbentGODFATHER was elected president in a tight race, he declared that the Cascadian Community would be reviving a long-standing tradition, Fan Fic Friday. Incarnation__ was invited to join Astoria, and brought a beacon with him. He completely redid Astoria, excavating new plots, building a library, residential apartments, an art museum, a Catholic Church, and replacing the government building

Continued Salish-Washington War escalation & Cascadian nonintervention

As the conflict between the Salish Federation & Washington continued, outside attention became more and more abundant. The Salish Federation & Haida garnered the support of the entirety of California by early March, along with the NATO alliance, forming a separate organization known as the Sunset Confederation. A second full-scale battle occurred between the Sunset Confederation & Washington, supported by NATO and the Rio Grande Republic respectively, throughout the Californian eastern frontier.

As the second week of March began, the diplomatic situation of the war became more and more complex, and the newly elected President, unbentGODFATHER made a statement of neutrality, stating that the Republic of Cascadia's government forces would not intervene in the ongoing war.

The Decline of Population

Unfortunately, on the 18th of March Cascadia, the nation lost its Realm status, and reverted to being an Empire. Prominent and populous towns like Port Angeles reverted to village status, as many citizens of Estonian_Mapping's January metropolis were kicked for inactivity. Astoria lost Hack3rmann and other citizens, and it lost its large town status. MPCity, fell altogether, being inactive for several weeks already.

Griefing of British Columbia

On the 3rd of March, a skirmish broke out in Lower Mainland between members of the Republic of the Rio Grande and TheRealJewy, with TNT involved. Two members of the Salish Federation were also present, but they were only there to investigate. Some unknown factor turned explosions on in the town, even though permissions were set with explosions off, and Manoia not been on since the 2nd. The beacon and the storage rooms were obliterated, and even though the beacon was retrieved by an Admin, the chests were never restored.

British Columbian Reorganization

After getting his town griefed, Governor Manoia attempted to move his nation, but accidentally unclaimed his town in the process. He decided to leave and sell British Columbia. Manoia received offers as high as 600 gold, but decided he would rather a Cascadian rule it, so decided on a 128 gold offer from Cascadia, using some of the 500 gold that LawofRence donated previously that day. After this deal was made, Advisor LawofRence was dispatched to govern British Columbia so President UnbentGodfather could return to Astoria. It was then given to Mihailovic on the 7th of April.

April Regrowth

UnbentGODFATHER's Second Term

UnbentGODFATHER was reelected with a landslide vote, beating the other candidates.

Revival of Olympia

Olympia had remained in a state of inactivity for three months, nearly falling on several occasions. Eventually, the mayor, spleenbeaned, passed mayorship of the town to Estonian_Mapping. He started reviving the town but soon grew bored and inactivity, and passed the town to LawofRence. In the last few weeks of April, the town underwent major expansion, becoming the largest town in the region with 25 people.

Growth of Salem

During the month of April, Salem increased in population from three to ten, becoming one of the largest towns in Cascadia, thanks to the work of durablecandy and lemon_mellow. For the first few weeks of Salem's expansion it was actually in Washington to exploit their claim bonus since Cascadia lost it that month

Growth of Eureka

The town of Eureka underwent lots of growth during the month, with help of the recruitment discord to get more members. Timeline expanded the town by building lots of new buildings, and he also acquired several beacons. At its height, the town had over 15 members and lots of new infrastructures.

May Stabilization

KingBerman's Term

KingBerman was elected president of Cascadia after overtaking and beating LawofRence in the last few hours of the election. After KingBerman was elected, there was some controversy as LawofRence noticed that Berman had removed one of LawofRence's voters accidentally when there was some confusion over voting qualifications and that a person that voted for KingBerman that no longer resided in the nation. LawofRence decided not to pursue this issue further. KingBerman promised the nation that he would serve the people, which was also his campaign slogan.

Province of Kaska

After talks with Remcoms, Kaska decided to join Cascadia after Salish showed interest in rejoining. It was reintegrated in between UnbentGODFATHER and KingBerman's terms.

Admission of Haida

The Province of Haida was re-admitted to Cascadia on the 7th of May, 2020. This was the third time Haida has been admitted as a Province of Cascadia, mostly due to Kaska joining as well as Salish being interested in being a province as well.

Cascadian Crisis

After an argument with Cascadian officials on the 9th, Timeline left Cascadia and joined Cascadia with Eureka.

On the 15th of May, the mayor of Olympia, Estonian_Mapping, joined Salish with his town, putting the population of Cascadia down to 44 people, and effectively ending Cascadia's recovery from inactivity that month.

Recovering from the Crisis

After the loss of Olympia, LawofRence, the previous mayor, was not pleased with the mayor, Estonian_Mapping, for disobeying his only request as mayor, which was to keep Olympia in Cascadia. He took the town back and gave it to BigBroPro0425, who rejoined Cascadia. Meanwhile, LawofRence took control of Schaumburg from Beppon, who was giving his town away. Giving control of the town to xBest_Name_Everx, LawofRence then went to Port Angeles and became mayor due to the threat of Port Angeles joining Salish.

June Growth

LawofRence's Term

LawofRence was elected President of Cascadia at the beginning of June 2020, in a landslide election. Through the duration of the month, Cascadia enjoyed significant levels of stability and expansion, as well as an end to the perception of Cascadia as a dead nation.

There was some controversy with LawofRence's presidency as he had joined Salish temporarily.

Kaska Crisis

On the 31st of May, Kaskan governor Remcoms announced that he was leaving EarthMC and gave his town and nation to JB54P. After this, he bombed his shop and /n spawn, then turned on PVP to start a battle.
