Origin of the name Aleksania[edit | edit source]
The name Aleksania's origin is a matter in dispute. There are two claims, the first (and the more likely) is that the name Aleksania comes from the person who discovered Aleksania, Aleksander Romanov, heir to the thrown of the Russian Empire. The islands were originally named the Islands of Saint Peter, by Romanov, but renamed in honer of him by Tzar Paul I, after he died of a snack bite. The second, is that Tzar Alexander I named it after himself, but there was a spelling error, and thus the "ks" instead of "x" in Aleksania.
History[edit | edit source]
- Main article: History of
Aleksania was discovered in 1799, by Russian explorer, Aleksander Romanov, then heir to the Russian thrown. Unfortunately, on his second voyage to islands he called the Islands of St. Peter, after the patron Russian saint, he got lost in the dense jungles, and was discovered near death by what was believed to be a snake bite a week later. He died the next day. The islands were named the Aleksanian Islands in his honer.
Aleksanian Independence[edit | edit source]
In 1867, Aleksania was purchased by the United States from the Russian Empire as part of the Alaska Purchase. During the Spanish-American war, Aleksania proved to be of great strategic value. One year later, on July 3, 1899, the United States granted Aleksania its independence. The new country formed the Kingdom of Aleksania (also known by the native name of Kin'gan'tofi), a constitutional monarchy. This lasted until a military coup after the collapse of the Stock Market in 1929.
The Many Revolutions of Aleksania[edit | edit source]
In April of 1930, tensions flashed, and the old state of Kin'gan'tofi, the military junta running the country since the New York Stock Market Collapsed in September the year before, and communists led by V.I. Leodorjivic, set up the People Republic of Leodorjivic. That government lasted until December 12, 1941, when the government surrendered to the Japanese, who had invaded two days before. In July of 1943, Aleksania was liberated by a joint American-Australian force. In September of that year, the people of Aleksania Established the Republic of Aleksania, which lasted until it was overthrown by Fijian sponsored gorillas in 1969, who than established the state of Fiji'du'phan, and forced the government to go into exile in Guam until the Dictatorship of Fiji'du'phan was overthrown by the Republic of Aleksania government in exile with help from the United States in Jan. of 1983. Because of this uprising, bitterness exists between Aleksania and Fiji to this day.

Then, in 2003, Aleksania set an embargo on Fiji, whom quickly sent ships just outside of Aleksanian waters. Fortunately, war was avoided when the UN stepped in to resolve the crisis.
