The Microfederation of Pikaton was founded in Waco, Texas, USA, on February 13th, 2015 by Noobly Walker. Starting at an area of around 1 acre, it has since obtained 4 more from a neighbor. On September 14, 2015, Pikaton allied with Pikaton HD (now known as Langton), thus creating the Pika Alliance. A month or two afterwards, Oregonzonia joined the alliance, although no record on when this occurred exists. Oregonzonia has since disbanded. On April 18th, 2016, a third microcountry, The Digletton Empire, was founded in Bucharest, Romania, and immediately allied with Pikaton.
On September 15th, 2016, Pikaton declared war on Asgardia. However, as Asgardia's population is now well over 500K, as well as the facts that they have no defined territory on Earth, are completely neutral, and could easily afford to fund an army that could flatten the entire PikaAlliance, the declaration was redacted.
Several laws have passed over Pikaton's history.

0002 Time ZonesEdit
With this law, 3 new time zones are created. All three are supposed to ignore Daylight Savings Time, but only one actually does.
Pikaton - Pika Central Time (PiCT) GMT-5 (winter), GMT-6 (summer)
Pikaton HD - Pika Eastern Standard Time (PiEST) PiCT+/-0, Pika Eastern Daylight Time (PiEDT) PiCT+1

As of right now, Digletton uses the time zone (UTC) +2
This law dictates that the Pikatonian currency should be Bitcoin, but no Bitcoin has yet been mined.
