Free Juice and Bagels Party
The original idea of a party based on the principles of free juice and bagels can be attributed to Ryan Grass of Natopia. Founded officially on May 24, 2004, by HSE Nathan Shepard in the Sovereign Imperial Republic of Natopia. The FJBP-Humor Group is established in the International Association, on May 24, 2004, in accordance with the Humor Initiative Act. On May 28, 2004, the term “bagelcratican” was coined by HSE Nathan Shepard to describe a member of the FJBP. On June 6, 2004, the official FJBP platform is created by HSE Nathan Shepard. On July 1, 2004, HG Tasneem Chowdhury was selected by the Party’s first Caucus to be first Chairwoman of the FJBP. HG Tasneem is also made chairwoman of the FJBP-Humor Group. On July 27, 2004, HSE Nathan Shepard founds the FJBP in the Republic of Lavalon. On July 29, 2004, Mathaeus H. Zeilavalone, Vice President of Lavalon, becomes the first Chairman of the Lavalon FJBP. On July 29, 2004, Emperor Zachary I, of the Empire of Alrodria, becomes the first Chairman of the Alrodria FJBP.
The Free Juice and Bagels Party is a truly unique micronational phenomenon. Founded in Natopia, the Party spread quickly to the International Association, the Republic of Lavalon, and the Empire of Alrodria. Largely humorous in nature, the party promotes the ideals of free juice and bagels at all state gatherings. Never a serious political force in Natopia, the Lavalonian incarnation of the FJBP, the Progressive Bagelcratican Party of Lavalon came to represent the left-leaning, progressive side of the nation. It was treated as an organ of the Natopian Government by its many opposition parties, and many claimed it's goal was to bring Lavalon under Natopian rule, due to the fact that the two Natopian Lavalonians were members of the PBP. Many may cite VUAS as proof of this goal, while others maintain it was "racism against Natopians."
