United Rebel's Republic of Club Penguin
It is currently experiencing an expansion or major renovation. The information contained within it should not be considered fully accurate until this tag has been removed.
The United Rebel's Republic of Club Penguin, more commonly referred to as the Rebel's Republic, the Rebels and under it's last few days, the United Penguin's Republic, was a secessionist country located on an island 20 miles northeast of Club Penguin Island known as Point Blank. Recognised by only a few nations, although it's existence was acknowledged by many, the URRCP was one of Antarctica's many failed states. The URRCP had a bad reputation in foreign politics, even as a Free Republic; UnitedTerra, MAI and New North Etana were it's only true allies, although to some extent the Rock Union can also be considered one. It was ruled successively by four different penguins, all Dark Penguin and all under the pseudonym of The Leader.
The United Rebel's Republic of Club Penguin believed in a Democratic state; it itself was a Democracy, however, it was highly flawed. In the Rebel's democracy, the 'Elected Leader' was above all other power; the 'First Leader' abolished the Rebels' Council, claiming that it was 'highly corrupt'. Essentially this lead it to be highly hypocritical, with each and every Leader exercising absolute power.
- Each Leader had their own personality and political beliefs.
- The first was a Neoconservative. Neoconservatism's biggest tenant is that free, fair elections and other fundamental rights should be "given" or "exported" to other nations by military force. True to his doctrine, First Leader attempted numerous invasions and raids against Club Penguin on the claims of 'being oppressed by the corrupt state of EBUL'.
- The second was a Trotskyist and a supporter of East Pengolia, some claiming that the URRCP essentially became a puppet state of East Pengolia.
- The third was a Libertarian, who believed in opening the free markets and scaling back the power of the government for such a badly damaged nation.
- The last, who's political beliefs are unknown, ceded the URRCP fully back to the United States of Antarctica, with their stronghold of Point Blank merging into Sub-Antarctic. Today, Point Blank is an abandoned nation, the only inhabitants being the Fourth Leader and a sizable tribe of Dark Penguins, who live in a small fishing village and supplies Club Penguin Island with fish and crops. Rumors have it that the famed Judgy makers and drink brewers still reside here.
On the 8th of March, 2009, the creatures of Point Blank united. Abandoned by their state of Sub-Antarctica and the lack of recognition from the federal government, the creatures rose up and a small civil war lasting three day resulted. The Loyalists were small in number but Club Penguin City supplied with enough weapons, food and munitions to hold off the rebels for at least three months. However it only took three days; the Loyalists left themselves for Club Penguin City.
The writing of their Constitution ultimately came up to a small class of educated Dark Penguin nobility, who had the most authority over the island. They agreed on a Democracy and write up what is today known as the Rebel Constitution, although at the time they referred it as the Constitution of Club Penguin, claiming Club Penguin Island and City as part of their territory.
The first election took place two months later; ballots were set up in what they claimed to be their territory on the 3rd May 2008. They did this surprisingly quite quickly under the cover of darkness with there being very few problems. They got ballots in the town in every server on Club Penguin (how is unknown) and at least 10 in every district in Club Penguin City. Votes from CPC and CPI were not accounted for as the authorities had removed the ballots but in Point Blank, the results soon came on the 31st May; the winner was Candidate 3, the candidate from the Party of Club Penguin, who also gained a majority of seats in parliament, with 17 out of 30, while the parties in opposition was the Free Liberal Party with 8 seats and the Socialist Party with 5. By law the new Elected Leader had to adopt the pseudonym of The Leader, referred to by government records as the First Leader.
 Term of the First Leader (1st June 2008 - 2nd May 2009)
The First Leader was a Neoconservative, meaning that he believed in using military power to promote freedom, civil rights, and democracy in other nations. With the approval of a largely NeoCon dominated council, the Party of Club Penguin was able to pass legislation handing absolute control of the military to The Leader. His first order was to 'invade' Club Penguin Island just a month into his Presidency, and 'secure' it to allow the integration into the URRCP. However when they landed, they only met support from a minuscule handful of Dark Penguin immigrants in Club Penguin Island. The PSA were able to repeal the invaders into the New Forest, where they began a campaign of guerrilla warfare, some of which is still going on today. Eventually The Leader decided to call off the invasion on the 6th of August and instead issued a statement that they had secured the island and were preparing to push towards Club Penguin City.
In reality, The Leader had lost and he knew he couldn't conquer the island. Conscription was rejected by a small margin, with 16 votes to 14 against conscription, meaning he couldn't replenish lost numbers. In order to fix that problem, he went onto the darker side of warfare: mercenaries. Hiring a combination of bounty hunters, criminals, smugglers, mercenaries, whatever rogue which wanted to escape from the USA authorities and buying weapons, equipment and even outdated naval vessels and planes, on the 7th September 2011, they were ready for a second strike. On this day, The Leader formed the Blizzard Rangers, his private army and special operations force for Club Penguin.
The 2008 Christmas War began with the invasion of the [htpp://www.clubpenguinwiki.info/wiki/Three_Little_Islands Three Little Islands], with Little North Island being secured. Realizing how this could ruin the Christmas Party, the PSA and the Ninjas were dispatched to prevent any invasion on Club Penguin Island. Although they met heavy resistance, the Rebels were able to secure Little Central Island without a fuss, thanks to their new-found mercenaries. Realising that they were doomed to fail, the Director of the PSA called upon the EPF, the CNIC and other agencies and Armies to secure the islands.
However, it would be time before a force arrived, meaning the Christmas Party would be ruined and the Director, the EBUL Board of Governors and the Moderators were brought to the negotiation table. In exchange for a non-aggression pact, The Leader was allowed to have the Three Little Islands and the uninhabited mountains and northern parts of the island, where no penguin from Club Penguin had ventured before, and a guarantee that no force would reinforce Club Penguin.
New Year's Day had The Leader announced the success at Club Penguin City, which they had conquered, although this was clearly propaganda. In reality they had only secured the Three Little Islands and uninhabited parts of Club Penguin. To an extent they had influence over New Forest and most Dark Penguin tribes supported the URRCP. Many Ninjas were unhappy about this, however strict measures were placed to ensure that the Rebels stayed as far away as possible from the Dojo. Other Ninjas began a campaign of warfare against the Rebels - see the Rebel-Ninja War for more.
Problems soon arose; The Leader had begun taking Doom Weed, however unknowingly, he was heavily allergic to it. Despite everything, he continued taking more and more until he had turned insane. On the 22nd February 2009, an insane Leader e-mailed Mabel von Injoface a famous letter, asking her to surrender all of Antarctica, which provoked a famous response. Freezeland actually took the threat seriously; they sent a small naval flotilla and The Bounders to deal with the Rebels. The Battle of Club Penguin was a battle between the two nations, resulting in a clear victory for the Freezelandians and a crushing defeat for the Rebels, not to mention the loss of their Mountain territory and the Three Little Islands. The Leader's insanity wasn't entirely lost after this sense of realism when he couped his own government by dissolving the Council and establishing a Dictatorship, however he was more willing to begin negotiations with the South Pole Council.
The URRCP became a Free Republic, despite large scale opposition from Judge Xavier. (He and the First Leader were fierce enemies in school.) It officially ratified the Treaty of Dorkugal on the 3rd March 2009. He slowly regained his sanity and his most famous contribution came; the discovery of a group of islands for the new state of New North Etana. The Etanians began an exodus to their new state; The Leader strongly contibuted to the foundations of the new state. He was later assasinated by the Assassin's Order, being stabbed by one of their members in the neck, after being secretly discovered be a member of the Calvarite Order.
 Term of the Second Leader (2nd May 2009 - 20th September 2009)
The Second Leader's term began on the 2nd May 2009, the same day which the First Leader. Almost immediately he sent a telegram to East Pengolia, in order to gain a vital ally. Bolshevik Penguinsky was delighted to have a newly formed Marxist nation. With that he supplied food, weapons, everything the URRCP and began issuing loans in order to help stabilise the country.
The only disagreement they had was over whether or not the revolution should be extended to other nations. The Second Leader, a Trotskyist, was a supporter of permanent revolution and secretly began funding and arming communist groups, including the Communist faction of the United Front for the Liberation of Snowzerland. New North Etana soon withdrew it's support of the Rebel's Republic.
The industrialisation began with the construction of several factories in order to manufacture planes and weapons, which were in high demand in East Pengolia. The arms trade also began to grow, significantly contributing to the Rebel's Republic economy. East Pengolians moved relocated the Rebel's Republic to live and work in the island, and vice-versa. However debt soon mounted upon the nation as East Pengolia and other nations loaned more and more money to fund several East Pengolian projects, such as health care. The nobility and middle class were poorer now as the Second Leader strived for a more equal society.
However problems soon arose; the country was starting to fall into a serious debt crisis. The New Class under the Second Leader were starting to enjoy several luxuries not available to the masses. They were becoming heavily corrupt and slowly the Rebel's Republic government began collapsing. Anarchy was running wild and calls for a Democratic government to return began mounting. The Leader continuously refused this, resulting in a popular counter-revolution, where The Leader and the government was overthrown. The military themselves supported the reactionists and arrested the Second Leader, trialling him under a military tribunal and sentencing him to death by capital punishment. He was hanged on September 20th, 2009.
 Term of the Third Leader (15th October 2009 - 30th September 2010)
The Constitution was restored and the Rebel's Republic was a democracy once again. It renamed itself the United Penguin's Republic and abandoned all claims to Club Penguin Island and Club Penguin City. Candidate Two of the Republican Libertarian Party was elected as Elected Leader and adopted the pseudonym of The Leader. The RLP also took 22 seats in the council while the Free Liberal Party took 8. The Leader began a series of reforms in regards to civil liberties and began to liberalise the free market; the welfare state was slashed, borders were opened and several industries were privatised. New North Etana began aligning itself towards this new government.
As the barriers to the free markets were removed, the country had it's tiger period; foreign companies began to relocate their industries in the Rebel's Republic. A lucky discovery found the potential for geothermal energy to be exported and for the mining of coal and natural gas. Work on a pipeline towards Club Penguin Island and Club Penguin City begun two months into his term. These advances meant that the URRCP was progressing quite quickly, however as penguins got richer, a divide between rich and poor began to grow with business oligarchs making their way through the corruption that was left by the former government. The Free Liberal Party, the main opposition, was crumbling and another party formed through it, the United Party, which seeked reunification with the USA.
Snowzerland soon became an issue, however after the Great Snowzerland War I, the nation made itself strictly neutral, like MAI, and Snowzerland saw no interest in the country. The prospect of merging with MAI, another neutral country, was brought up and continued long into the Fourth Leader's term. It was continuously rejected, although the United Party saw it as an option.
 Term of the Fourth Leader (15th October 2010 - 6th December 2010)
The Third Leader stood for reelection as Candidate 1 however Candidate 3 of the United Party was the winner as the council won by just 1 seat. The United Party had secured 16 seats over the Republican Libertarian Party's 14, while the Free Liberal Party fell from power. Immediately a bill was pushed forward which would see a referendum on the URRCP rejoining another nation. After 1 day, the Bill was passed, with little debate. Over the next two weeks preparations were made in a referendum where everyone was required to vote by law. There was a 100% turnover, with the results of the election being 59% for merging into another country after the vote on the 29th October.
The Fourth Leader invited MAI, UnitedTerra and all states of the USA to a meeting to decide the fate of the island. MAI was rejected due to it's policies of morality and UnitedTerra, Eastshield and Weddell failed to turn up. This left a shortlist of Sub-Antarctica, Trans-Antarctica and the Antarctic Peninsula. Negotiators finally agreed with Sub-Antarctica on the 6th December, officially ending the Rebel's government. The Point Blank Transitional Government was established by the United States of Antarctica as a Kritarchic territory of the USA before Point Blank fully transitioned as part of the State of Sub-Antarctica.
