The Kodiak Republic in 2022
13 Dec 2021 - RP year 636
Alexander Mondo was elected Chancellor with Ulrykk von Guelderlaand as Assembly President. Political parties were established by judicial order and the popular Assembly President Ulrykk von Guelderlaand was assassinated by right-wing terrorists. Kodiak began working to establish more meaningful inter-governmental relations. While the embasies with Alcris and New Western Empire were closed due to lack of communication from their leadership, Kodiak was accepted into the URA with nearly unanimous approval (the Democratic Republic being the lone "Nay" vote).
07 March - RP year 639
Wesley Karlsson of the DLKP was elected Chancellor with Tobias Virstürm of the PPK as Assembly President. An embassy with Anteria was opened while talks for a treaty with India began. The executive was very quiet, with a poor showing from Chancellor Karlsson, but the Assembly passed a number of economic reforms, including a surprise alliance between the conservative NUP and the socialist KWP to nationalise municipal water and energy production and allocation.
30 May - RP year 642
Patrick Barber of the KWP was elected Chancellor with Tobias Virstürm holding on as Assembly President. The DLPK disbanded and was absorbed by the NUP just a day after the election. Three major treaties were signed, opening relations with India, United Kingdom, and the Democratic Republic. Major tax reforms were passed, including a Georgist Land-Value Tax, a tax on empty homes, and major increases to corporation and capital gains taxes. A landmark public housing policy barely passed just 52-38% after support for the government was withdrawn by the NUP early in the debate. Major defence spending increases were sponsored by the NUP with the government unable to pass any meaningful amendments.
22 Aug - RP year 645
Oskar Luchens of the NUP was elected Chancellor with Patrick Barber of the KWP elected Assembly President. War with the Great North broke out with massive sections of the province of the Darrent being lost to occupying troops. The TGN economy began to suffer greatly over the course of the invasion and a ceasefire was agreed. Kodiak spent the two years of ceasefire building up military strength while the TGN economy continued to suffer. Conscription and massive defence spending increases were passed while right-wing terrorists took the opportunity to harass and harm ethnic and religious minority groups. Mr. Luchens took ill after a fall and was unable to govern through the final year of his term.
14 Nov - RP year 648
John Edwards of the KWP was elected Chancellor with Patrick Barber of the KWP again Assembly President. A relationship with the Union of Wreath and Rose was established and talks of an alliance with the People's Republic of Wintercrest have begun. An invitation to the Aegis Union was rebuffed after concerns about sovereignty and misuse of diplomatic cables. After a poll to retain conscription was passed by only one vote in the Assembly, riots and protests broke out across Kodiak with right-wing vigilante groups dramatically increasing the violence. While an 11th hour deal with the NUP was not able to change the results, a new resolution by the KWP to repeal conscription was passed with some accusing the Chancellor of bribing the NUP with billions in increased defence spending. The next election is due 06 February 2023 - RP year 651. See The Kodiak Republic in 2023 for more information.
