In the year 1451 AD a lone traveler, named Francis Armalo, who was not familiar with the region of Frankterre created a fort in the southern area of the country. He called it "Fort de Mylou," and he invited people to join him. After fifty long years the fort grew to ten cities in a fifty mile radius. In 1502 AD, the Frankterran Army heard of the cities, they began to devise a plan to conquer them. In the year 1505 AD after three years of planning the army descended from Parie to the original Fort. When they arrived they pretended that they were just there to meet the new neighbors. After four months in the fort they began to burn the fort to the ground. The inhabitants of the area around the fort stayed no matter what the army did. When the army finally reached Parie again in October of 1505 AD, they thought they had eradicated the population of Mylou, but they were wrong. Seven years later in 1512 AD the army gained word about a new colony forming where the fort was. This time they wanted to see what the new colony could do, they waited and waited, but the suspected attack never came. Peace was created for almost four hundred years. In 1900 the citizens of the newly created Principauté de Mylou decided to revolt from Frankterre and become their own independent country.
After a year of planning their revolution from Frankterre, the Mylese Army forms an angry mob outside of the Karnozy Building. Once outside they began to rally more troops, when they had two thousand people in their army. Their plan was to storm the Markhill Prison about 500 miles from the exact spot of the Karnozy Building. Without anything but their feet to transport them, it would take a year and three months to reach the prison. In January of 1901 AD they reached the prison, their numbers were down to one thousand five hundred from their perilous journey, but they fought hard. The storm of the Markhill Prison lasted two months, the Mylese Army held their ground and fought valiantly. At the end of February 1901 AD, the Mylese Army finally broke into the headquarters of the Frankterran Army in the center of the prison. Within eight hours of reaching the headquarters, the Mylese Army killed Pierre la Guin, leader of the Frankterran Army. This infuriated the King of Frankterre, the King vowed ten more years of war. In 1905 AD, the King of Frankterre was killed by a Mylese Army General. The next king was not too happy with Mylou, but he continued the war for another six years. In 1908 AD, the King decided he would attack Mylou while it took a city in upper Frankterre. The Mylese Army heard from their mole and reversed the course back to Parie, and when they arrived they burned down a few buildings to show they meant business. The King was hidden away to stay safe from any assassination attempts. The next three years were the easiest, the Mylese continually fought off the Frankterre. In April of 1911 AD, exactly on the first of April, the Frankterran Army surrendered and gave Mylou their independence. The mylou sent a telegram back to their city and a constitution was made.

Mylou itself is divided into several wards (also known as quartier), which hold some autonomy in their own rights (although not too much). Each ward is governed by a Ward Council, chaired by a President.
This was the first ward to becreated. It is in the north-eastern part of the country. The Ryka Ward is mainly farmlands. Products grown here include corn, pumpkins, and other vegetables. In the center of the ward, in a town called Mojo Town, is a Farmer's Market that meets every saturday. Penguins can go there and trade their goods for other items.
This was the second ward to be created. It is located below the Ryka Ward. This ward is the opposite of the Ryka Ward, instead of farmland, it is mainly cities. The second largest city, Bienco City, is located here. Bienco City houses a few factories. In the center of Bienco City is a luxurious musuem, it houses many famous paintings. Some paintings were painted by Mylese painters.
This was the third ward to be created. It is located next to the Strill Ward. This ward is just like the Ryka Ward, full of farmlands. Farmers from the Ipsothon Ward travel to the Ryka Ward every week to trade their vegetables. One key difference is there are many orchards in the Ipsothon Ward, the Ryka Ward only has one orchard. Products grown here include corn, pumpkins, lettuce, apples, grapes, cherries, and more.
The fourth ward was created to be an educational area. It is located south of the Ipsothon Ward. In the center of this ward is a giant university called Université de Menton (Translation: University of Mentone). It is said that the smartest of Mylou come here to study.
The fifth ward was created due to its high amount of gold deposits. The MGMO runs a giant strip mine in the southern edge of the Rex Ward. Gold from here is used to create statues for places in Frankterre and Mylou. Rumors have been spreading about Silver Fever, people say that there is silver polluting the water in this ward.
The Tex Ward is the southern most ward, it is known for its luxurious beaches. One beach, la baie des dunes, is famous for its red-white sands. The most vacationed in spot is located here, coincidentally, it is la baie des dunes.
The Parier Ward, the seventh ward created, is the gambling centre of Mylou. Ville de Paris is located here, where many penguins and creatures-alike gamble away their fortunes. A tale went that a penguin, whose fortune was almost enough to make him a billionaire, gambled away his fortune within a single night and ended up insolvent. Therefore, the Mylese government and locals would regularly warn patrons to be careful, but unfortunately many of these warnings are not heeded to until it was too late.
The Mylese economy is almost entirely dominated by the service sector, with the manufacturing and agricultural sectors making up less than 7.5% of the city-state's economy. Mylou's capital city is world renowned for being the "Las Puffles of the Ninja Archipelago" due to its numerous world class casinos, which attract 95% of it's tourists. Its most famous and most classiest Casino and Theater is the Mont Charles, where many millionaires, celebrities, and politicians stay, gamble, and watch high end plays. The Mylou Grand Prix, held annually at the Circuit de Mylou, is also a tourist magnet that attracts petrolheads by the hoards. Bets are often placed to determine the outcome of the race (which is legal), but penguins occasionally placed bets on strange outcomes in the race (such as whether or not a certain racer would end up having flattened tires).
