The Monarchy of the Welkammon Islands, also called the Welkammons, is a group of islands and country in the Gulf of Darmon. The Welkammons consist of three large islands: Barristone, Lower Welkammon, and Upper Welkammon, as well as smaller islands: Brarao, Bommo, Treemous, Quantoga, DeSulla, and Trippell. The Welkammons have eighteen cities; the islands also have thousands of smaller communities such as Tatros. The Welkammons are named after James Welkammon, the leader of the first group of English-speaking settlers to the islands. The nation was formerly an overseas colony of Staugossa from 2005 to 2009, when it was freed from Staugossa's control. It is recognized by all but 2 nations, Birkaine and Greater Holy Germania.

HistoryEdit

The Welkammons were thought to have formed from volcanic activity more than 900 years ago. The islands' first inhabitants were a group of natives called the Ezak. The Ezak were nomadic people who lived off the land. The first English-speaking settlers came to Barristone in 1786. They began building communities and forcing the Ezak to the smaller islands, where most of the Ezak population live today. In 1805, a group of explorers led by John Gellan explored present-day Barristone's Haverhall Twins, two mountains on the northern part of the island. Gellan and his crew came back to present-day Vanceford to tell the town's residents about his adventures on the Haverhalls, and a small group of people decided to settle near the mountains. In the 1820s, English-speaking settlers began inhabiting Upper Welkammon, forcing the natives there to relocate to the smaller islands. English-speaking settlers made it to Lower Welkammon in 1834. In 1842, the first Welkammons government, the Nation of the Welkammons adopted a constitution which it had from then until 2005. In 1846, Welkammonians elected Thaddeus Wurhelm to the office of President. Wurhelm held that office from 1847 to 1875. During the time Wurhelm was president, the Welkammons had established a two-house legislature.
