The Democratic Republic of Knorfladshgeff was founded in 1598 by British forces fleeing Britain because of a bank heist they commited. The nation was originally called The Federal Kingdom of Knorfladshgeff. Knorfladshgeff first operated as a Monarchy, under King George I of Knorfladshgeff, but in 1605, there was rebellion. The rebels won, and created a new, Parliamentary Democracy, and in 1607, they changed the name of the country to The Democratic Republic of Knorfladshgeff. Between 1608 and 1920, a very steady influx of immigrants came to the nation. Roughly 98% of them were British, Irish Canadian and German. The first Prime Minister, elected in 1610, was James McNarley. He won the election by a landslide 100% of the vote. His opponent, sadly, hung himself in the area of Independence City now known as Red Square. In 1819, it joined the region of Non sum pisces. Most of the people that took part in the creation of the nation were British, Irish and Canadian. The nation of Knorfladshgeff has been growing in the past couple of years. The current leader is Prime Minister Johnathan Myrie, and in the summer of 2005, Knorfladshgeff once again changed regions, and joined the region of Q102.
