An Absolute Stool of a PresentPosted: April 26, 2013
Whilst we cannot confirm or deny whether the ARK was created as described in The Book of Mauve, that two sweaty, copulating stars fashioned the earth, we are in a position to tell you a little about how the ARK came to be in its modern form as an independent nation.
An area now occupied by the Antisocial Republik of Kleptokratz has always been fiercely independent in spirit, but for much of history officially a territory of various empires, or under the control of a more powerful parent nation.
Then, in the late 1800s, the parent country (who shall remain unnamed for diplomatic reasons) tried to give this territory to a neighbouring country as a birthday present. The neighbour returned it, saying it was ‘an absolute stool of a present.’ (approximate translation). The original parent country refused to take it back.
The ARK was in limbo, unwanted and unloved by the world. Which is exactly how it wants to be.
Finally, it had its independence.
