History

Prior to Formation 

Old Svalbard was a large kingdom that established authority over the central portions of the archipelago. It eventually collapsed, leaving many ruins and city-states behind.

Foundation of Svalbard 

The Royal Arms of Svalbard, which were used as an official flag until the adoption of the oligarchy

Formation 

Thundorlord and other residents of Longyearbyen worked for just over half a month amassing the gold necessary to form the nation.

Growth 

As of November 8, 2019, the nation had annexed neighboring Nordaustlandet, as the borders of Longyearbyen itself have grown.

Svalbard's territory in December of 2019

New Randers Rebellion

Beginning

A player by the name of RG_Guy_05, with gnomedrick, decided that they wanted to rebel against their nation of Svalbard because they wanted their own nation. Therefore, New Randers was born. circa. December 2019.

Failure

The town at first joined Svalbard, trying to fool Thundorlord. But a few hours later left, and started the rebellion.

Due to their lack of gold, they couldn't reach nationhood. Eventually RG_guy_05 went inactive, leaving gnomedrick as the mayor. The town got a few people, but eventually went completely inactive. The town fell April 2, 2020.

Decline and the Provisional Government

After repeated town sales and a lack of central authority, Svalbard began an immense decline in spring of 2020. After ThundorLord left again around April, the mayors adopted a provisional oligarchic government to keep the nation intact.

Nordaustlandet's Secession

Due to Frustration with the Inactivity of Svalbard and the Vanishing of it's leader, TreePapi created the nation of Nordaustlandet in the northern town of Blomstringenbyen (now Jordetbyen), with Kantbyen and Barentsburg Joining soon after. The nation has since maintained a positive relationship with the remaining Citizens of Svalbard.

Domination of Nordaustlandet

On May 14, 2020, Pyramiden joined Nordaustlandet, marking the nation's first expansion into Spitsbergen. Shortly afterwards, the mayor of Pyramiden, Miztheirkizshen, founded a new city on the island of Nordaustlandet, named Lomfjorden. This was the first independent expansion of the new nation, and cemented the new nation's dominant role in the islands.

The Restoration Efforts

The nation had a sudden spike in activity, and with Bobberson07, who decided to come back, convinced many of the older players who used to be in Svalbard. The group has planned many towns for the nation with ThundorLord also becoming active once again on Discord. In addition, a Nomadic group of Norwegian players made the decision to settle in Nordaustlandet on June 10th, 2020. It is currently uncertain whether they will form their own state or join an existing nation in the archipelago.

Reign of King Bobberson

After Thundorlord went a bit more active on Discord, he told Bobberson to take over the rank as a King. On June 18th, 2020, Bobberson announced his kingship. His reign immediately began reforming the country into a system dominated by a chancellery of 6. This has lead to a minor political rift, in which some support the old constitution, while others support drastic changes. A week into Bobberson's reign, he came under fire from abroad after declaring Sweden an enemy due to being called a Nazi nation. Despite international criticism, the ruling saw strong support within Svalbard.

The Nordauslandet crisis

On July 13th, Bobberson made an offer to Treepapi to diplomatically unite Svalbard under 1 nation. This offer was refused, and people speculated about a potential threat of war. Later in the month, Bobberson unofficially plans to annex Nordauslandet once War plugin gets added. On August 19, War was declared by Svalbard. This lead to the Svalbard-Nordauslandet War.

The Time of Uncertanty

This era generally started at the start of September. During this time, Bobberson_, was thinking about quitting, leading to many people requesting to be the next king. Leathermonster, despite being the Crown Prince, was not liked much within Svalbard. Leathermonster and Bobberson weren't on good terms recently, due to Leather leaving the nation for a few hours and also because of their conflicting interests on Longyearbyen's infrastructure. After a while, Bobberson decided he will stay king, because he wasnt't able to find a proper succesor. After this, Notable member Leafbox_, asked about being Queen. Bobberson agreed, and used this to start a new system, Elective Monarchy. Then a Dual Monarchy started, with King Bobberson and Queen Leafbox. During this time a Royal House was founded, House of Fjorden.

Era of the Fjordens

After the house was founded, many Princes and one Princess were added, leading to 3 total generations existing. This system was heavily supported in the community and it is generally more stable then the previous Councillor System. During this time, Svalbard also passed the 60 Population mark, giving it the "Realm" status. This was considered a big step back to 100 citizens.

Collapse of Dual Monarchy

After Leafbox un democraticlly kicked Hammerfest, many people hated her. throughout the day Leafbox was very angry, and decided to quit. She left every Svalbard related discord and is un contactable. It could be either a total mental collapse, depression, or a mental breakdown from the anger she had. Her town is supposed to be isolated to he point of not being allowed to be showed on maps. The nation has returned to a single Monarch, and Nordaustlandet is set to unite soon.

Abdication of Bobberson_

Initial Consideration

On the 23rd of September 2020, Bobberson_ announced in the Svalbard discord that he was abdicating the throne of Svalbard. He said he had plans to move to Asgardia, as he had spent almost a year in Svalbard, and was tired of it and wanted to move on. In the discord, he made 2 announcements, with the first stating the following:

"I am leaving Svalbard, to go to Asgardia

I've been here for a year, and I've always loved the nation. But, i want a new adventure, I want to do what I originally joined the server for, a town in Norway

i learnt that, if you stay in one town ur not getting the full experience moving around is natural, and that if you have plans and dreams, always follow them

This was my best experience on any game/server, and I will miss everyone that is in this nation, I'll miss Longyearbyen, all the buildings and how ugly the shopping district was. I'll remember eveything, but I will be leaving Monday. Everything happens for the greater good

Long live Svalbard, we'll never fall!"

The second announcement was in regards to who would be in charge after he left, and it stated:

" I have decided who will be taking my spot, we will be having a group lead the nation Everyone titled "Prins (Esse)" will have the chancellor rank, but someone will have to take control of Longyearbyen. I have decided Prins Ballgud Fjorden (Afaukiz) will be handling Longyearbyen I will miss everyone and everything here I will be leaving monday'"

Change of Mind

After a few days, the King of Svalbard changed his mind, as Asgardia was refusing to sell, and said he'd remain the King of Svalbard for a bit longer.

Government

Elective Monarchy

After Leafbox_ became the Queen, the nation thought of creating a Royal Family that would lead the nation. The Royal Family started off with King Bobberson_, Queen Leafbox_ and Kronprins Leathermonster. Later, Princess Craig and Prins Carrick were adopted. These two had 2 kids, 2019s and Afaukiz. The Royal Family has a name, they are called The "House of Fjorden". It was later found out that, previous leader ThundorLord, is the dad of Bobberson_. If anyone wants to become a member, a vote has to pass through the Family, if this passes it has to pass through the public. Any new members are automatically adopted by the families current newest generation, which at the moment would mean either 2019s or Afaukiz adopt them.

Previous Governments

The Consulship

This government was installed on June 19th, 2020, by Bobberson07, when he was chosen new king of Svalbard. It is a government with 6 Councillors, with the King holding as much power as 3 members. This government was installed as an attempt to keep democracy and the Oligarchy. The Consulship will have an unlimited amount of candidates, of which 6 are elected by the citizens. This government would have remained in place until Svalbard hit a population of 35 once again, when it did, a national vote was held. The Consulship won out, and is the current system of Svalbard. On August 25th, the council voted to reduce its members to 4.

Parties

Svalbard is home to 3 political parties.

Sval Reformist People's Party(SRPP)

This party follows Socialist/Communist values, and is led by Leafbox. It has always supported the deposition of the King, but it usually cooperates with the monarchy to retain stability. It has 1 seat in the council.

Pissist Party of Svalbard(PPS)

Led by Shite Afaukiz of the Svalbardic Pissist church, it is a theocracy, however it gives freedom of religion. It opposes the monarchy and wants democracy. It has a few members, all of which are Pissist. The party supports democratic values, and pushes for Pissism to become Svalbard's state church. It has no strong opinion on the monarchy. It holds a plurality in the council, and is Svalbard's current leading party.

Holist Party(HLP)

This party is also a theocracy, consisting of two Holism followers. It also opposes a monarchy. Both of its members hold seats in the council.

Previous Governments

The Oligarchy (Now Abolished)

Svalbard's current government was installed on May 2, 2020. The government is intended to delegate an extreme amount of power to the nobles, primarily due to the King leaving on April 8 of that year. During this period, Svalbard's leaders assembled in a council popularly known as the oligarchy. Mayors were automatically allowed in the oligarchy once their activity was confirmed, and other citizens could be introduced with an 80% vote. The oligarchy was ruled by a head oligarch, who operated polling within the system. Polls were the primary means of communication, leading to attempted intervention in Russia and Groenland that went nowhere. The oligarchy existed only in name after May 11, 2020, and was later abolished on June 19th, 2020.

Notable Council Members
  • TreePapi, one of the richest members of the oligarchy, served as its first leader. He resigned his position on May 7 to form the nation of Nordaustlandet.
  • TheLootCrate was extremely active in the government, despite not being active on the server. He was the de facto mayor of Longyearbyen until he left the system on May 23.
  • Afaukiz is considered the last Prime Minister of Svalbard, and was active in the oligarchy. He left along with most members after Nordaustlandet seceded.
  • Carrick100 inherited the oligarchy from TreePapi the day he left, and rapidly increased activity. Despite his efforts leading to Svalbard briefly being known on the world stage again, the secession of Nordaustlandet brought the oligarchy's authority to an end.
  • Bobberson07 was extremely active in the oligarchy, and was known for his strong opinions regarding the nation's direction.

Original Government

Svalbard was founded as an Absolute Monarchy, but it gradually moved into a more democratic system. Svalbard's constitution was completed on 02/14/2020. It was a Constitutional Monarchy that voted on a leader every month, starting March 1st of 2020. After Svalbard's period of growth ended, it entered a steep decline that prevented its government from functioning. Furthermore, a string of inactive leaders left the position of Prime Minister more comparable to that of a King.

Enemies

Svalbard has one enemy, Pakistan, however are also at war with Nordaustlandet, as can be seen on the Svalbard-Nordaustlandet Unification War page, after Leafbox officially declared war on them.

National Anthem

Svalbard's National anthem is Boléro by Maurice Ravel. The start of Svalbard's anthem is set to 8:39 of the video, because most of it is not interesting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r30D3SW4OVw for the link.
