The Principality of Loveshack (colloquially known as Loveshack) was a Monarchic Anarcho-Queer Micronation bordering on Mount Augusta in Civcraft 2.0 as an enclave. Eternal Autocrat Forever Ruling of the Principality of Loveshack, His Royal And Utterly Fabulous Homosexual Highness Prince Toastedspikes I, Chief Pouf, Head of Fairy Command, and Absolute Monarch of Everlasting Lubricated Tightness, was the ruler of Loveshack, and has now abdicated. In his place, a Regency Council consisting of Sir Tryingtofly at its head, joined with the Barons and the Order of the Phallus-Shaped Table.
After June 20th 2014, the Principality of Loveshack was officially recognised as a sovereign nation by the Constitution of Mount Augusta. Both nations enjoyed very amiable relations, and co-operated on a variety of issues; economy, military, politics, sports and culture.
Values and Goals
The Principality of Loveshack's main values were as follows:
- To spread the dogma of love, freedom of sexuality, kindness to strangers, carefree life, and ultimate fabulousness.
- To support the self-determination of any and all nations.
- To spread the beliefs of Purprism through the Order of Pinkeus.
- To drink tea.
- To plant flowers.
- To embroider kittens in amusing poses.
- To roleplay as an insignificant and harmless micronation.
The Principality of Loveshack was divided into several provinces, of which some were added to grant tithes to new Barons.
The Province of Palace
The Capital of Loveshack, this Province holds the two Giant Trees that prop up the currently unfinished Royal Palace. It is also host to foreign embassies. No Baron may hold this Province as it is under direct supervision of the Prince himself.

Loveshack declared war on Vanier, the French District of Mount Augusta, following insulting signs being posted by francophones within Loveshackian territory shortly after Loveshack's establishment. Several skirmishes ensued, consisting of snide remarks against both sides, the removal of the colours red and blue from the french flags in Vanier, and the building of gigantic fortifications in Loveshack with definitely not cannons pointing at Vanier. Francophonic Augustans were banned from entering Loveshack, and were punished by being forced to speak English.
As of June 20th 2014, after the official recognition of Loveshack's sovereignty by the constitution of Mount Augusta, peace has been declared between the two communities. Every 20th of every month is now considered a Day of Peace and a national holiday in Loveshack.
The Principality of Loveshack-Grundeswald Treaty
A treaty never signed by Grundeswald, this treaty proposed to release King Ronald Grundeswald from the torturing bondage of Loveshackian fashion critique, under the conditions of Grundeswald being annexed into the Principality of Loveshack as The Least Fabulous Province of the North-Eastern Wastelands, under the Baronic control of Ronald Grundeswald.
Ronald Grundeswald is as of today still under scrutiny by Loveshackian Fashion Police, and all of Grundeswald's territories are still under claim by Loveshack.
Loveshack lays claim to all of Orion's territories, and remains in a state of war with Orion since March 19th 2014 following Orion's decision to raze the independent nation of Clockville following their declaration of independence. The war up to now climaxed in the Battle of Cuba, where the Royal Loveshackian Army fought alongside Cuba and her allies against Orion. Loveshack did not agree to a ceasefire following the Battle of Cuba, and continues to perform military exercises twice monthly, which consist of hurling mildly insulting comments as well as bombardments of artillery shells filled with pink paint, followed by a well-deserved communal shower and roast marshmallows over campfires. The Principality of Loveshack invaded and occupied the Orion Embassy in Mt Augusta on May 21st, which was recently re-occupied by Orion militants.
On 17 September, Orion sent esteemed diplomat GTAVisbest to Loveshack to initiate peace talks for the first time.
