Flag of the Khuulide Khuttide Khlubi
Slitronia can trace the beginning of its conception to a short-lived school group named Khuulide Khuttide Khlubi (Translated: Cool Guys Club, just with unnecessary Hs after the Ks). It was created on 1 April 2019 and went inactive on 10 April 2020 - one day before the establishment of Slitronia. It existed both in real life and on Messenger. The last message on Messenger was a link to choose the name and symbols for Slitronia.
It didn't disappear without leaving a mark on Slitronia as we know it today. First of all, it is probably how our Great King Johannes I even found out about micronationalism. And secondly, the planned area of the Khuulide Khuttide Khlubi was what became the Territory of Kasari Islands - one of the two first claims of Slitronia.
The First Steps (2020)
Slitronia, or as it was known on the first days, Slijoodu, and after that Slitrumba, was very different to what it is today. It can mostly be attributed to the nation being a one-man nation for most of 2020. Not a lot is recorded of that age, as most actions took place on now-deleted Discord servers. Slitronia gained a few members, who all were Johannes' friends. The only serious thing Slitronia did back then was the establishment of a treaty of mutual recognition with Hasanistan.

Striving Towards Seriousness (2021)
At the beginning of 2021, Slitronia was active in spurts. Before the 1st anniversary, the County of Torostar was created and the Kingdom of Flemish Ardennes was recognized. The Flemish Ardennes became inactive almost immediately and is the only country, that Slitronia has withdrawn its recognition from. Slitronia also joined the Nordic Alliance, where they found out for the first time about another Estonian micronation - Revalia.
After the first anniversary, Slitronia became active in May and created the County of Kalamaja. Slitronia also joined the Micronation World Organization, but left it in July, due to the organization being inactive.
The next time Slitronia went active again was in September when it signed a treaty of mutual recognition with an Austrian micronation named Duckionary. However, the most important event in 2021 took place on 29 December, when the Great King Johannes I and the Revalian King Sander II met in person and signed a treaty of mutual recognition and alliance. Revalia has stayed one of the closest allies to Slitronia to this day.
On 31 December Slitronia along with other baltic micronations was one of the founders of the Baltic Union. From there, Slitronia signed a treaty of mutual recognition with Esgeldia.

From One Man Nation to a Community (2022)
2022 Started off more actively than the previous years. Slitronia signed a few more mutual recognition treaties, with the nations of Malus, Moorsem and Mornastan. Slitronia also acceded to the Wrythe and Edgbaston conventions, to be able to apply to join the Grand Unified Micronational. Before the 2nd anniversary, Slitronia joined the Alliance of the Micronations and the Micronational Olympic Federation and got an observer status in the GUM.
On the weeks of the 2nd anniversary, the first Imperium (that being the parliament) elections were held and a national census was held. The nation had grown from its three members in 2020 to 10 members. The elections were important because now the people also got a say in how the nation would progress. The direct monarchy turned into a democracy.
After being in another short state of inactivity, the first Imperium meeting was called together. The future of Slitronia was argued about and a few changes were made. The County of Kalamaja and the Capital City and County of Parva Navale were made into cities under the newly formed Region of Tallinn, under which a new area - Area of Pääsküla Lake was also added, the boundaries of most of the administrative divisions were changed and the recognition of the Kingdom of the Flemish Ardennes were withdrawn.
