Everon is a micronation located in the North Sea.

History

Colonisation

Both Everon and its sister island Malden were colonised by France in the early 19th century. Most towns and settlements on the island were also constructed during this period, with French settlers establishing much of its present day infrastructure.

Prussian rule

As the Napoleonic Wars drew to a conclusion with France facing decisive defeat at the hands of the Prussian Empire, Everon was captured and was turned into a naval outpost. The French settlers that remained on Everon were subsequently assimilated, though most local traditions and settlement names were retained in spite of the handover.

Second World War

During the Second World War, Everon was occupied by Nazi Germany during the early stages of the war and was turned into a listening post by the Kriegsmarine, used to track and hunt down Allied ships.

The island's German occupiers eventually fled as the war came to a close, with what remained of the civilian population taking control once more.

Cold War

At the height of the Cold War, Everon became locked in a struggle of influence between the United States and the Soviet Union. Though Everon remained mostly neutral, it was home to a training camp used by the nearby NATO garrison located on Malden.

In 1985, rogue Soviet military forces occupied and repressed the island's inhabitants, while also destroying the NATO facilities on the island. They were eventually overthrown by a combination of the island's citizens and military forces from the United States.

Geography

Main article: Everon (terrain)

Everon covers a total landmass of 51 square kilometres.

Everon is largely defined by a mixture of dense pine woodlands with the occasional grasslands intermeshed with farmland. The southern sections of the island however, are largely scattered with steep valleys and mountainous terrain.

There is no defined capital city, though based on population alone Montignac (located in the centre of the island) and Lamentin (due west) serve as the island's two largest settlements.

Politics

Everon is not administered by any established government authority and is also not a member of the United Nations.

Armed forces and law enforcement

Everon does not maintain a standing army, though a paramilitary force called the Everon Freedom Alliance (mostly consisting of armed civilians) has been mobilised before in times of conflict.

Diplomacy

Everon maintains stoic relations with its neighbours in the Malden islands chain, and also shares a close tie to the Independent Republic of Nogova.

During the Cold War, Everon held diplomatic relations with both Western and Eastern countries, though it was host to a NATO training garrison. Following its occupation by the Soviet Union and subsequent liberation by NATO forces in 1985, all ties to the Soviet government were completely severed.

Economy

Everon is largely self-sufficient and does not rely on an export-based economy.

Due to the overall sedentary lifestyle of its closed communities, almost all economic activity is reliant on agriculture.

Society

Demographics

Everon Islanders are predominately of French descent.

Languages

The primary language used by Everon Islanders is English, though many are bilingual in French as well.

Trivia

  • Everon remains as the only named micronation to date in the entire series.
