The Kingdom of Cape Breton has a long history. From the colonial era to its dictatorship era. Cape Breton has a rich history.
Colonial Era Cape Breton Edit
In the 1700's Cape Breton Island was colonized by the United Kingdom and became the colony of Cape Breton. Many new world settlers settled in various communities throughout the island. The British controlled Cape Breton for over 100 years. During this time Cape Breton was an important port area and strategic place for the British during their colonial wars and imperial era. The Colony of Cape Breton eventually merged with the Colony of Nova Scotia to become one "Colony of Nova Scotia"
Nova Scotia Rule and The Great War Edit
The Colony of Nova Scotia declared independence from the British Empire and became a self-governing nation. At this time Nova Scotia ruled Cape Breton with great force and stopped any attempt of Cape Breton Independence. During this aggressive rule Cape Breton fell into a depression and the economy fell with many citizens impoverished as the Nova Scotia government refused to treat Cape Breton equally as it did the mainland. During the great war Cape Bretoner's provided men to fight with the Nova Scotia Army. Cape Breton also manufactured war materials for Nova Scotia. Late in the war Nova Scotia ordered a military draft for Cape Breton only, which was extremely controversial in Cape Breton. However the war ended shortly after and not many conscripts were sent to war.
Independence and Absolute Monarchy Era Edit
Following the great war, Nova Scotia was heavily depleted and its armed forces weakened. Finally Cape Breton was able to gain independence from Nova Scotia as it could no longer afford to fight the independence movement. So then on August 1st 1984. Cape Breton officially declared independence from Nova Scotia. The leader of the independence movement William Justin crowned himself king and took absolute power in Cape Breton. Although King William was an absolute monarch and therefore technically a dictator he did not rule with force and dictatorial values. He fought for the people and respected them. He heavily developed Cape Breton into what it is today. Although in 2000 a democratic movement came about and King William did not fight to remain in power, he respected the people and voluntarily abolished the absolute rule.
Constitutional Monarchy and Modern Years Edit
In 2000, the Kingdom of Cape Breton became a Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy. Justin076 became King, however his duties are mainly ceremonial. Cape Breton held there first democratic election and the 1st Cape Breton Parliament was founded. With Prime Minister David Clarke being the 1st Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cape Breton. Under David Clarke, the Kingdom of Cape Breton joined the Green Protection Agency, signed a non-nuclear weapons treaty which expires in 2011, and set out the official new Cape Breton constitution. In 2003, Prime Minster Clarke lost his reelection vote and the Conservative Party of Cape Breton took control of Parliament with James Sutherland becoming the 2nd Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cape Breton.
Fraggle War and Nuclear Attack Edit
In June 2004, the Kingdom of Cape Breton was tied into crisis following a failed espionage operation against the nation Fraggle Rock. Following Fraggles rouge actions of using a nuclear weapon against one of Cape Breton's allies, Cape Breton completed a failed espionage operation against Fraggle. However, the Kingdom was highly criticized for its actions as a neutral nation. The Kingdom of Cape Breton faced large Sanctions.

Kingdom blockaded Fraggle Rock, carried out air and ground attacks with little counter-attacks. However on June 8th, Fraggle Rock launched a nuclear weapons as anticipated at the Kingdom of Cape Breton's Capital of Sydney Mines. This attack killed nearly 130,000 people and destroyed about 80% of the entire city. The Kingdom of Cape Breton highly criticized Fraggle Rock for targeting innocent civilians. Also due to the war, the General of the Armed Forces, Ronald Trump overthrew the government and established a military junta. On June 14th, Fraggle Rock and Cape Breton came to a stalemate due to Fraggle Rock being almost completely destroyed and its lack of ability to wage war against Cape Breton. Cape Breton proclaimed victory
however due to Fraggle Rock not surrendering this could be argued. Military Loses were greater for Fraggle Rock, however Civilian loses were greater for Cape Breton after nearly 130 thousand people perished in the Nuclear Bombing of Sydney Mines. The 14 day war will go down in Cape Breton's history as being the most destructive war in its history.
