End of an era as Confederation dissolved


Above: The Treaty of Dissolution was signed in Orchardstown today. The Confederation’s flag was raised for the last time.

The Confederation of Leylandistan & Gurvata has today been dissolved. The decision follows the announcement made last week on the government’s website, and ends two years of union between Leylandiistan and Gurvata, the former having been in existence for nearly four years. The Co-Presidents met for the final time in their capacity as heads of state of the Confederation at Orchardstown this afternoon. They reviewed and agreed to final draft of a treaty to end the state of union between Leylandiistan & Gurvata, with provisions to dissolve those constituents upon the end of the union.

The Confederation’s flag was raised for a final time in the corn patch of Orchardstown. The Treaty to Dissolve the State of Union between Leylandiistan & Gurvata was signed at 18:50 GMT, first by Co-President Ó Ceocháin of Gurvata and then by Co-President Ó Cathail, thereby dissolving the Confederation. The Confederal flag was lowered, and the Irish tricolour was raised to acknowledge the transfer of sovereignty back to the Republic of Ireland. The text of the Treaty may be viewed here.

Following the Confederation’s dissolution, final measures have been taken to wrap up the government’s activity. All legislation was repealed by the Treaty of Dissolution, and all treaties annulled. Membership of the two organisations which the Confederation participated in, the Grand Unified Micronational and the International Agricultural Development Pact, has been withdrawn. The government’s twitter account, which has 326 followers, will be shut down in the coming days. The National Treasury’s funds have been equally divided amongst all citizens. The government website’s domain has been cancelled and will expire in a few month’s time. Official diplomatic channels are being closed, with all outstanding matters being settled.

It’s the end of a journey for the Confederation, and thus it is also the end of the journey for Béal na Tíre. We hope to preserve this site as a historical record of events in the Confederation. We would like to thank all of our loyal readers for reading our articles, and commenting on them too, all around the world. Go raibh maith agaibh go léir!
