Prehistory: Unknown BC-776
Around 24 Million years ago, the Jonish island split away from present-day France and UK, opening up the English Channel.
Jonish Tribal Era: 777-1743
In the year 777, Jonish settlers (from France, Sweden, and the UK), landed in Jonas. On the 13th of September, 1743, Britsh colonists found the island off the coast of France. Jonas did not become an official dominion until the 18th of February, 1744.
British Empire: 1744-1971
Britain controlled the nation for a few hundred years. This colonization action also introduced British English to Jonas, though many people were not happy about Jonas under British rule, which led to protests in Yellow City, Herthery, New Wales (now Churchill), and New Truro (now Hamilton). The Republic of Jonas did get independence in February of 1971. The date is unknown, though some people, including people born before the date claiming it was the 24th of February 1971, however no evidence (as of 2001), can prove this.
Karish Empire: 1971-2006
The Karish Empire was a controversial empire, ruled by a dictator, named Troy B. Markinson. He was a controversial dictator, who even led to crown Raj French, a politician who was hated by the general Jonish public, as king, on the 3rd of September, 2006. This led to a massive uprising of Jonish people, leading to the dictatorship's eventual collapse on the 30th of November 2006, with Raj French fleeing to Canada on the 2nd of December 2006, murdering someone in Toronto, and taking his own life during a police standoff after escaping to Detroit, in the USA. Markinson was killed during a battle with protesters on the 29th of November, 2006.
Republic of Jonas: 2006-present
The Republic of Jonas was founded on the 30th of November 2006. Many people believe the name was because of the name of the Prime Minister, Jonas Albert (who's first name just happened to be the same name as the nation). It was revealed in 2007, however, is because of historical reasons.
The Albit was adopted in favour of the Pound in 2009, which happened after the following:
- The pound was unpopular, and was giving citizens flashbacks to the battles of 2006.
- The 2008 stock market crash worldwide.
King James I and Queen Jaiden I were crowned King and Queen of Jonas in 2011, after the country went with no monarch for 5 full years.
