History

In early July of 2020, several serverwide-MPO conflicts arose engulfing the institutions of that day in controversy. These events drove EliteNeon to leave the Epsilon Republic on July 10th, 2020. That night in Mumble, Elite's western neighbor, KyleFrb, suggested a Regional MPO to co-operate on transit and commerce. Elite immediately agreed and planning commenced. A Declaration declaring the founding of the Metropolitan North Association was signed that night, and the Constitution was ratified three hours later. EliteNeon became the President, and KyleFrb was selected to be the Vice-President. A community city, meant to be the Capital of the MNA was proposed on July 11th. Tulipsburg, located near the member cities of Celina and Malosa, was founded later that night. On July 12th, the need for a Department of Transportation was recognized, and chiefbozx was nominated to Secretary of Transportation. He founded on that day TransNorth, the branded name for the Department, and RailNorth, the MPO-wide rail service. RailNorth was originally envisioned as being called the Metro-North Railroad, a reference to the real regional rail system in the New York Area and to the name of the MNA itself. However, Chief in his capacity as Secretary objected to the name, as it referenced New York. Diplomatic relations were officially requested on July 16th, with the Epsilon Republic and the Federated States of the New World both approving. Continuing transit improvements, BoatNorth, led by KyleFrb and BernCow was founded on July 19th. BoatNorth would go on to span across the entire Northern Ocean region, connecting the economic powerhouses of the MNA. The Expressway Authority was then founded to sponsor road connections within the MNA, starting with the Highway A101.png/Highway B1.png project. By the end of August, the administration was re-elected, and projects were continuing. On the 15th of November, 2020, the Senate passed the Opremia Act, officially designating the city of Oparia as the cultural capital of the MNA in recognition of its ascension to  [Premier] . On January 27th, 2021, kyyl_ was automatically elected President after EliteNeon decuded not to run again.
