Change in Leadership

After growing discontent, the leader of Madagascar at the time, aTerraAustralis, held a poll on his leadership. This ended in 1 voting for him to remain, and 5 voting him out. In response to this, he wrote up his resignation letter.

Resignation Letter

14th Of December, 2018

To The Malagasy People and Parliament

This letter formalizes my resignation as the Head Chancellor of the Kingdom of Madagascar.

I am resigning from the position of Chancellor for multiple reasons:

1.  Public support for my resignation in a recent vote which has prompted me to write this letter. - I don’t hate anyone who supported my resignation, except for Bean, fuck Bean.

'We all hate Bean - South Carolina '

2.   A growing feeling of distrust between myself and a fellow Chancellor, PoppyKai over a variety of topics which I shall not delve into at this moment in time.

I I did this to keep the Kingdom intact as I do not wish to see it torn apart by internal strife, notably by myself. I’ve been in this situation before and it ended in myself and my partner falling out and ripping up the nation. This is not something I want to happen for the nation I have worked so hard for. Upon my resignation, my name within the constitution shall be replaced with that of “CloakedEagle” as he takes my place as Chancellor and Head Chancellor of the Kingdom of Madagascar. I will be mostly residing within my camp as Tea Bay, which will remain a member of the nation unless it is removed by a Chancellor or voted out by Parliament. The resignation will take effect within the next 24 hours. This can only be cancelled if CloakedEagle is unable to receive the position, in which case parliament will have to converse and vote on what to do. This must be accepted regardless of their result, even if it means the cancellation of this resignation letter and my continuation as a Malagasy Chancellor.                          

Long Live Madagascar    

Head Chancellor of the Kingdom of Madagascar - aTerraAustralis, formally The_Pock

Democratic situation

From previously being a political dictatorship, the (former) king Cloaked Eagle implemented reforms to pursue a democratic society. A parliament with ministers was created plus Chancellors appointed, who is second to power after the King.

Foreign Policy

Byzantium Incident

On the 19th of November, 2018, there was a small skirmish between the Malagasy Councillor aTerraAustralis and the resident Catnipseverbeen approached the Byzantium Empress Florene after multiple requests for her to leave the island. This was because she had been spotted going down the west coast of Madagascar and collecting clay without informing any official. Due to her refusal to leave, she was attacked by aTerraAustralis and Catnipseverbean. She was chased in the water by Catnips in a boat, and aTerraAustralis swimming behind her. She teleported out near the Maldives.

The Coffee Bay Conflict

The Coffee Bay Conflict began on the 9th of December 2018, when Coffee Bay resident Moshmallows murdered PoppyKai outside Toerana, the nation's capital. Coffee Bay was kicked out of the nation and a siege was planned on the town itself. aTerraAustralis, catnipseverbean, add__123 and Westono sailed to the town and killed Moshmallows.

June 23rd Riots

The War In Madagascar

A few hours after, Mr_X1234, the Manchurian King, Declared war on Madagascar and soon after a large party (7 people) arrived in Madagascar.

Political Parties

There are many political views in Madagascar, but there are three main ones.

Green Extremist Party

It was started by Pr0killer and saw a rapid increase in members, since the elections were coming up on the 13th of July 2019. Some of the core party members are Pr0killer, Barbasmas, CrSalmon, and Adamer26 - all of whom won the election for all the available minister posts (some shared with other parties as they had even votes). Some of the core issues of the Green Extremist Party are the nationwide Ban of Coal, replacement of Sainte Marie houses with CO2-neutral Dirt houses, Environment restoration, and the Free Kelp Act. The members Barbasmas and Westono have also done some forest aforestation work north of Ecohaven since much of the forest in Madagascar is logged.

Communist/Socialist Party of Madagascar

Old Flag of the Communist/Socialist party

the communist party of Madagascar was founded on the ideas of Karl Marx And the Communist Manifesto. IEatDookie made the party of those ideas, in the early days of the nation. The capital of the party was Toilara, But after that fell, it was moved to Tsalbarvio, in the taslograd district. When Tsalograd was demolished (as per the Tsalograd Revitalization plan), it was moved to the House of Communism in Barbtopia. The Leader of the party is IEatDookie, and Vice-Leader is Hulk00.

Madagascar Strong

Madagascar Strong Promotion/Flag

Madagascar Strong is The Capitalist party of Madagascar. The main idea is to keep the nation running the way it currently is, plus the ideas of JoniAlt. The party is the most popular with the Malagasy people, and with the current queen PoppyKai, but she isn't with the party. The leader of the party is JoniAlt, the rest is unknown. JoniAlt gained 42.3% of the votes on the 13th of July 2019 and therefore lost to Barbasmas (57.7%) for the post of Economic Minister. Barbasmas felt bad afterward and made him vice-minister. In the next elections, JoniAlt won and became the 3rd minister of Economics in Madagascar. JoniAlt has also announced his quit of political life, yet he will continue supporting the nation.

Fascist Party

Fascist Party Flag

During the First elections of the ministers, Ccatnipseverbean wanted to run for King, even though poppy said he couldn't. Catnipseverbeans had a plan to take over the government under his complete rule, even though he never said he was fascist. He had a plan to destroy the 3 biggest African Nations at the time, along with destroying the African union. The party is now disbanded, And the only Member was Catnips as the leader.

Conservative Party

The Conservative Party is a minor party was started my 2theMAXofficial in the first elections of 2019. The main goal of The Conservative Party is to keep peace in Madagascar and to stop all who threaten the nation. 2theMAXoffical is the only member. He ran for Minister of Defense and Foreign Affairs and won with a tie for Foreign Affairs tieing with Adamer26. Now he is running for Minister of Defense in the 2nd elections of 2019.

Infrastructural Project

Catnipseverbean's plan to take over Africa

Leader The_Pock had requested a complex railroad system connecting the different towns on the island of Madagascar, and an underground network was being constructed late 2018, during the first months of Madagascar's existence. 

Old Tunnel Railways

The newer railroads above ground, this one with Masoarivo in the background

However, sometime around late February 2019 - early March 2019, King CloakedEagle ordered the construction of a new type of railroad network above ground, on bridges. CloakedEagle, the newbie Barbasmas, and Pr0killer built much of the bridge in sandstone in substantially less time than expected.

These railroad bridges are the optimal design of the railroad, built by a previous citizen.

Controversies

As the construction of the railway demanded great amounts of sandstone, citizen Barbasmas thought it would be a good idea to excavate the deserts of Oman outside the capital of the Seljuk_Empire. Within days, the exploitation led to environmental change in the area - making the sand desert into a stone desert. Barbasmas also wrote his own username and "HI" in the sand, visible from satellites orbiting around the earth. This frustrated the Seljuk_Empire nation leader john_yuki and Chancellor PoppyKai sent an apology on behalf of the nation and a ticket to rewind the desert was made the 2nd of Mars 2019. Barbasmas said the following about the incident:

"Well in hindsight maybe that was a dumb move but i was determined to make the bridges asap and liked the organized excavation. My most sincere apology goes out to all Seljuks and I promise to invite u all to dinner"  - Barbasmas 2nd March 2019
