General Information

The Benevolent Montostanian Empire (henceforth referred to as the B.M.E.) is an Empire state from Map 11, with the capital city, Kastelo Urbo, located at 18770 64 -4600, North of the map centre. It was founded on the 28th of January 2023 by Olivia313. The B.M.E. came to be after founder Olivia313 left the nation of Ortopia, wishing to create her own country. Since that time, the nation has grown in population and in infrastructure/construction of buildings. Olivia313 stepped down from leadership on the 8th of February 2024, with Nathaniel____ becoming leader. Contained within the B.M.E.'s self defined borders is approximately 480,000 blocks squared. Currently the nation has 5 citizens: Olivia313, Kinoko_6040, Nathaniel____, BonesDaBoss, and PlateLOL (as of June 2023).

The translation of "Montostan", which can also be used to describe the nation, is taken from the Esperanto word for mountain (monto) and adding the suffix -stan meaning "place of". Therefore “Montostan” roughly means "Place of (the) mountain".

Set out in (the to be written) The Law of the Benevolent Montostanian Empire, it declares that the B.M.E. have two central languages. These are, in order of priority, Esperanto and English. All permanent signs must have Esperanto text, followed by English (although this is not a necessity). In the S.C.M.H, Dutch is also a secondary language as it is the official language of Harfell. In Article III, subsection 3, the B.M.E.'s policy on linguistic diversity is shown: "The B.M.E. will respect... linguistic diversity, if not actively embrace it."

The banner of the B.M.E., it was created on the 28th of January, 2023.

The banner of the B.M.E. has a red background with a white flower pattern design, and has only been changed once in the nation’s history from that of a white flower pattern design with a dark blue & cyan striped paly background in an initial design for the nation’s banner.

History

The history of the B.M.E. is characterized by the following periods/events: Founding/Early History, The WaffleKing Scare and The First Summer Progression. It is important to note that historical records are occasionally patchy, and that the server/B.M.E.’s history constantly moving forward.

Founding/Early History

The B.M.E. was founded on the 28th of January 2023 by Olivia313, with the planning of Montostan Castle beginning and the creation of the existing banner. Although initial scouting of a suitable location had taken place over the week prior.

On the 29th of January 2023 the first of Montostan Castle's walls were constructed, along with the creation of an official passport template. The first ever Senator was appointed by Olivia (Kinoko_6040). Diplomatic relations with Ortopia are opened, with the King of Ortopia, JGKelpChip, being made a citizen.

On the 31st of January 2023, mass deforestation occurs in preparation for the countryside areas.

By the 2nd of February 2023, the original village which preceded Kastelo City was completely destroyed.

On the 11th of March 2023, construction begins on the B.M.E.'s first embassy, located in Harfell at the foot of the hill from the Château de Puanteur. Despite the two nation's contact spanning further back, this marks the beginning of formal relations with the two nations, which continues healthily to the present day.

On the 19th of March 2023, diplomatic relations are officially established with Winterfall, with the gifting of a totem of undying to Olivia313 from DRTre_the_Knight and disscusions of plans of constructing a future embassy. Just days later on the 26th of March 2023, relations between the two nations would become foggier due to Winterfall being perceived as a “Waffle puppet state” (see The WaffleKingScare, although no confrontation or discussion came from this matter.

The WaffleKing Scare

The C.A.W. document being drafted in Ortopia, Stinkerism can be seen standing at the podium (26th of March, 2023).

Joining with other nations which included Harfell, Ortopia, and The_Warden's_City, the B.M.E. joined the Coalition Against Waffles (or C.A.W.) on the 26th of March 2023 following the signing of an un-finished CAW document in Ortopia. This served as an alliance of nations to protect each other should Waffle Empire (modern day Pretorian Empire) related events escalate.

The Southeastern_Condominium_of_Montostan_and_Harfell (or the S.C.M.H.) was created on the 25th of March 2023 with the purpose of being a protective/preventative measure against a potential invasion or attack from WaffleKing0407.

The First Summer Progression

With the joining of Nathaniel____ on the 1st of June 2023, rapid progress began in West Kastelo Urbo both in construction of buildings and farms. Nathaniel____ was later that same day made Senator of the Island of New Samos, a new region which was brought under B.M.E. rule in an agreement with Nathaniel____.

Construction of Harfell’s embassy in the B.M.E. begins on the 27th of June, 2023.
