Little information survives from Svalbard's history prior to the foundation of the modern state. The first known cities to appear on Svalbard were relatively heavily populated, with the first settlement, Sveagruva, appearing around November of 2019 just south of modern Longyearbyen, whose ruins survive to this day. Settlement on Bear Island, now known as Bjornoya, began around this period, with a similarly high population being reached. The only true event documented during this period was the creation of the Global Seed Vault by CynicHavoc, which survived into 2020.
First Kingdom of Svalbard
Like other events during this period, the Old Kingdom of Svalbard has a poorly documented history, with many events completely up to debate. The only thing that is known for certain is the foundation of a Svalbardic nation in mid-2019 by SirFirelord, centered around the city of Icemoor in southern Nordaustlandet. While the city grew larger than any other in Svalbard's history, the nation did not - as time went on, the nation gradually decayed, never achieving more than two member cities. The nation was known to have poor relations with Britain, which was raided in failed invasions multiple times.
Following the collapse of SirFirelord's Svalbard in July of 2019, preexisting cities would continue to be founded and grow. Most notable during this period was Stram-Kurs, today known as the old quarter of Pyramiden, the only internationally known destination in the archipelago. The city would persist until the foundation of modern Svalbard, and was renowned for its architecture. The only concentrated effort towards the foundation of a Svalbardic state was the Republic of Svalbard, today known as Snofortbyen, created by a small group of West African refugees. Also notable was the city of Sos-Kablyat, created due to the flood of French players from FuzeIII.
Foundation of Svalbard
Thundorlord and other residents of Longyearbyen worked for just over half a month amassing the gold necessary to form the nation.
As of November 8, 2019, the nation had annexed neighboring Nordaustlandet, as the borders of Longyearbyen itself have grown.
New Randers Rebellion
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.
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.
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.
The Threat of Abdication
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.
The nation, after Bobberson's near abdication, took a slight turn down in activity. The nation still hit 70 residents however. During this time the nation had relativly less talk in the discord, which showed a bit of interest being lost. A prominent member, Afaukiz, left to join Madagascar, further de motivating the rest of the nation. However, Bobberson knew that Svalbard has gotten through this before, and will do so again, as he is trying right now.
On October 10th 2020, Bobberson_ announced his official exit from Svalbard, due to the arguing, saying in DMs that he couldn't handle the stress of being the Svalbardian King, and that he couldn't handle a nation and his life. He stated his intentions on moving to Copenhagen and retiring there.
The mayor of Pyramiden had been recently having growing discontent with the other members of Svalbard, who denounced him for being openly homophobic and denying the Holocaust. This brought up a lot heated debates and controversy. The town plans to make "Vestspitsbergen". Both sides are hostile to one another, and the closing of the Longyearbyen-Pyramiden bridge is expected to occur soon.
The occupation was taken out by allies of Svalbard. One Dane (Bobberson_) and two Nubians (gorkymoo1119 and Mengan_) travelled to the town, and once getting there spotted the mayor building the 35 block tall wall. The attackers went up and down the walls around 3 times, scaring off the mayor. At one point, the mayor was pushed from a 35 block tall part of the wall, causing an estimated 6-7 hearts of damage. The attackers then left, however the mayor remained hidden for another 20 minutes. This is largely considered a win for the attackers, successfully managing intimidation and humiliation of Vestpitsbergen.
Vichy Svalbard Creation
Vichy Svalbard was a town made by Leathermonster east of Longyearbyen, as part of the rebellion. It was made as an attempt to claimblock the Svalbardian capital, with Leathermonster saying it was due to the Occupation of Pyramiden, and as a response to the Longyearbyen control over an area Pyramiden wanted to claim.
Disbandment of Vichy Svalbard
The town was disbanded due to fears of a 5th warn and consequential ban. So he relocated back to Pyramiden.
Destruction of Pyramiden
With writing on the wall, Leathermonster destroyed most of Pyramiden and cleared out all valuables to flee from Svalbard, and to prevent the town from having "a bunch of faggots take it over".
This was largely considered a win for Svalbard and Allied forces, succesfully making the Pyramiden mayor flee. However the loss of the historic town of Pyramiden shattered some morale, considering it has been through 4 mayors and existed for nearly a year, and home to the best infrastructure.
Due to general interest being lost in the server, and the server being on the verge of collapsing under lag, many players quit. The nation is a shell of its former self, and a recovery without everyone coming back is impossible. The discord remains quiet, however the king is the only active one, activly developing Longyearbyen while every other town fades away.
Talks of a New King
The nation, was pretty much dead. Afaukiz (faukiz_d) was the only active EMC player. 2019s, is expected to abdicate soon to hand it to him, which means this will begin a new era of Svalbard, and its third revival so far. After becoming King, Afaukiz brought Svalbard into the Nubian Empire.
With the slow collapse of the previous Svalbard, the nation fell. But soon after, Garfield_mc, an active member of Avalon, had the idea to found a new Svalbard under his Norwegian Heritage and pure strength. He brought with him a merry band of Garfield enthusiasts, and set out for Svalbard. They founded the town of Garfstad in the very centre of the archepelago, and then went about creating a new Svalbard. Once it was created, they joined Avalon as a province, and joined Greater Quebec as Avalon is a province of Quebec. This is the current iteration of Svalbard, and will perhaps be the only iteration for quite some time.
City Of Hammerfest
The town is 30 chunks, and the mayor is RandalTheEndieGuy
The town was founded by two friends, builderwise and Broudonbcraft. They quickly grew the town, and were invited to Svalbard by Bobberson_. They quickly accepted. The town then got 11 residents after inviting most of their friends.
The town then thought of making a nation to unite Scandinavia. Many thought this was impossible, however once the Queen of Svalbard, Leafbox_, found out, she quickly started an arguement
Leafbox_ started to state how they hadn't returned the 180g loan Bobberson gave them, they said they were "poor", and willing to return 50g. This stirred up much debate, and during this, Leafbox kicked the town from the nation out of anger.
The town got mad at Leafbox, and Svalbard despite the decision being all Leafbox's. Eventually, they were convinced to rejoin the nation, however the town lost a lot of morale, and continued the quest for a nation. During this time, Bobberson gave around 50g to help, however builderwise took it all and fled to Bilene. After this Broundonbcraft got extrememly mad, and blocked builderwise. Builderwise stated they did this because being in the town was suffocating, as Broundon wasn't allowing builderwise to take any decisions or help build.
Broundonbcraft didn't happen to do much for the town, and the town stagnated under him. He let Leafbox, the person who insulted him before, be the "co-mayor" for fun. The town died after this, and the hopes for a nation and united Scandinavia was gone.
Broundonbcraft quit the server on November 1st, 2020. Leaving the town to an inactive member. The town is set to fall soon unless the current mayor logs on every 42 days.
ThundorLord spent just under a week gathering the gold necessary to form the future capital, burying the gold to prevent it from being stolen. It was founded on the exact spot where Longyearbyen is in the real world.
Not long after it's founding, the town began to expand, as the town expanded slowly, a few players joined, (most of the now 'Lords'). These players would help fund the nation. During the save up for the nation, Longyearbyen put expansion on hold, as all funds, and all resident's gold would go towards Nationhood. After Nationhood was reached, Longyearbyen began expanding rapidly, in population, and territory size. The capital has reached a size of 169 chunks. The current population is 2. The town was handed to Bobberson07, after ThundorLords decision to quit EMC. After Bobberson left, it was handed to 2019s. It later fell.
Longyearbyen is where the majority of the population of Svalbard lives, and where most national trade takes place as it is /n spawn. Longyearbyen used to be the world's northernmost Capital City.

The town has the name of a real life Svalbard town, but isn't located in the same location, its just west of Kantbyen
(Not to be confused with the nation of Nordaustlandet)
Not much is known about the formation of Nordaustlandet because of its isolation from the capital. But it was planned to join the nation for a few weeks before the founding took place.
Nordaustlandet remained a 1-man-town, with only enough claims to protect the mayor's house. Despite many prompts to expand, by the King. The small town remained this way. This small town had a size of 6 chunks. The town was deleted on Jan 26, 2020. After Maineri went inactive.
Nordaustlandet was the capital of Svalbard for 3 hours on the 11th of November 2019, because of a command mistake by the King. This makes Nordaustlandet a past capital of the nation, and the mayor, Maineri, a past ruler.
The town was founded by theopgamingpig in mid-December. It was made over the ruins of old Svalbard.

Later, the mayor decided that being a mayor is boring, and he'll like to remain as a regular resident.
Snofortbyen was founded by Lopatomil several days after joining Svalbard. During that time he saved up almost 3 stacks of gold. Then he announced his plans about rebuilding ruins of the Old Republic to Thundorlord. He agreed and contributed with more gold. Orhil had renamed it to Olavia, then Tocantis renamed it Snowfortbyen.

Sorkapbyen, after leaving Svalbard, is not allowed to be labeled on maps, and any nation that has the area around it, has sorkapbyen as technical counterpart.
The town, therefore, is supposed to be "non-existant"
It is the oldest town in Svalbard, it was founded by Czomolungma long before Svalbard was formed and even before Longyearbyen was formed - October 4, 2019. The mayor was active till Svalbard's early days. He then went inactive for a while, but came back in the middle of January of 2020 and joined the Nation of Svalbard.

Due to Svalbard's inactivity, its newly crowned king, faukiz_d, has decided to make his nation a dictatorship which he would lead. It is planned to eventually, that is, when Svalbard becomes active again, transform the government into a democracy.
After Leafbox_ became the Queen, the nation thought of crietatorship and eventually transform it into a democracy.ating 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.
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.
Svalbard is home to 3 political parties.

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.
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.
