History

Main article: History of the Republic of Taiyang

Formation

The Republic of Taiyang was first founded on September 5th of 2020 as the Peacemaker Union as the successor of Foxarmy and several other clans. Throughout the rest of the year the Peacemaker Union's government would shift many times, deciding on new political ideologies to guide the organization frequently.[1]

Unofficial Annexations

SamuraiEzoiar claims that their clan annexed former clans, or more simply joined, This would be Birdarmy, and other more possible former clans.[1][2] On October 10th, the Republic of Taiyang declared that Portaljude2's Army had been annexed as a state along with a few others.[3]

Hybrid Regime

On November 15th, the Peacemaker Union adopted a policy known as the hybrid regime, which operated on the Three Principles of the People. This also resulted in an update of the clan's flag.[4]

Name Change

On December 10th, the Peacemaker Union's administration decided to change the name of the organization. It was briefly discussed that this new name would be the Oriental Union. However, ultimately the new name of the clan was decided to be the Taiyang Union due to the potentially derogatory nature of the word oriental. The purpose behind this change was to better align the Union's style with far east-Asian cultures and governments.[5]

Finalization of Government

On December 30th, the Republic of Taiyang underwent another major reform which resulted in SamuraiEzoiar and Jumbojuu holding joint leadership over the organization. The Taiyang administration also scrapped its prospective formal alliance organization project, Clans United Front. The Republic of Taiyang considered these changes to be the final changes necessary before officially declaring the clan complete. They announced that recruitment would open in early 2021.[6]

Later that same day, the Republic of Taiyang formed an alliance with Toppat Clan after m88youngling's proposal.[7]

On January 2th 2021, Republic of Taiyang accepted The Toxic Regime's alliance offer, Making them allies for a while.

Minor Name Change

On January 5th, Ezoiar once changed the clan's name for the final time from Taiyang Union to Republic of Taiyang by a poll, It is also been told that it has a shorten name "Taiyang".

Taiyang Expansionism

On April 2nd 2021, Ezoiar made a Roblox group for Taiyang, making it now from Inter-LBP Clan to Inter-gaming Clan.

Influence Struggle

Ever since the shutdown of the LBP servers, Taiyang is in a tough spot of recruiting members, Mostly because it could not make a recruitment level and the collapsing community of LBP clanning. Because of this, Taiyang has plans to reform themselves that fit themselves to the current state of rest of LBP community.

Ever since the establishment, They have been quiet too.

From July 19th 2021 to September 10th 2021, They are going more quiet and hidden due to possible pressure from the Chinese Communist Party.[2]

Since September 10th 2021, They are de facto mostly in a standstill, However their leader(s) still remain de jure active. They will remain standstill until they can properly recruit.

2021-2022 period

Taiyang reached it's first anniversary on the 5th of September.

Following September 10th 2021, They have plans to abandon laws and everything government related except for its government, cities and political parties, to hopefully recruit easier.

They also have plans to revamp their clan to make it more simple.

Then they went under reformation at September 12th-13th 2021, It was declared closed clan until they were fully finished.

Following the same day, The LBP servers is officially back but did not bring back PS3 versions. Luckily for Taiyang that they did not do too much work on these versions.

Demographics

Population

The Republic of Taiyang has five members in total, three of which live in the United States. The two other members live in the United Kingdom and Denmark.[1]

However they used to claim that they have more than five members as they claim they have entirety of Foxarmy, and Birdarmy. They are now looking forward recruiting Foxarmy, and Dogs Clan Veterans

Literal Population on LBP

Because most of the members moved onto other games such as Roblox, Their actual population on LBP (and their Roblox Group) is de facto only 2, while the other three are currently not active at LBP or even never played LBP at all.

Language

The Republic of Taiyang's government has declared that its official languages are English, Japanese, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Pinyin, Tagalog, Cantonese, Korean, and Russian. However, they primarily speak English, and minor of them speaks Danish.[1]

Government

Former flag for Republic of Taiyang

First Government

The original government structure adopted by the Peacemaker Union on September 5th was partially democratic. The core government was necrocratic.[1]

Although a system of elections existed during this time, SamuraiEzoiar enacted a permanent policy which gives him full control regardless of who is in power. This system was replaced by the Second Government on November 15th, 2020.[1]

Second Government (Nov 15th 2020 - Dec 30th 2020)

On November 15 2020, SamuraiEzoiar reformed the Peacemaker Union, adopting a Dictatorship Hybrid Regime, with Tridemism few other adjustments.[1]

On December 10th, Peacemaker Union changed its name to the Taiyang Union after an agreement between SamuraiEzoiar and Jumbojuu themselves.[1]

On December 20th, the Republic of Taiyang administration reconsidered their government structure and replaced the Hybrid Regime system with Socialism. The Second Government was eventually replaced by the Third government on December 30th.[1]

Third Government (Dec 30th 2020 - Sep 12th 2021)

On December 30th, 2020, the Republic of Taiyang further refined the clan's government by replacing socialism with democratic socialism. The Taiyang administration also instated temporary dual-leadership. If the Republic of Taiyang chooses to, dual leadership may become a permanent policy.[1]

Following that day, SamuraiEzoiar established a political party system.[1]

At September 12th 2021, A week after it's first year anniversary, Taiyang reformed itself to be more newbie-friendly therefore ending the third government. It means it is the current long-lasted government (257 days) in the entire Taiyang's history.

Fourth Government "更新政府/Refreshed Government" (Sep 13th 2021 - present)

Due to severe growth statistics, Taiyang planned to reform itself to be more fitting as a small clan, such as abolishment of laws, temporary military-free, abandoning the idea of early constitution.

They have also established autonomous regions or local governments.

The proposal also affects leadership to be more secure control to prevent leadership go to the wrong hands, despite being a democracy. Which means Ezoiar is a "permanent leader", or rather eternal chairman until he decides to resign completely.

Most of these effects last until they reach enough members to securely reestablish.

[1] In December 30th 2020, the Taiyang administration scrapped the formal alliance plans, citing that there was "no reason for it to exist".

From at July 11th 2021, They installed Swiss Neutrality and Partial Isolationism into their government.

They currently own an unannounced council for Foxarmy, Birdarmy, and Dogs Clan veterans inspired from USSR's Commonwealth of Independent States, which only Taiyang is the member.

They also de-facto own another clan which is exclusively on Roblox, Combining those two clans will make it up to 12 members.
