After DoomsdayEdit

The local farmers and priests met the next day in Pwllheli, Abersoch, Penchain and Lanbedrog village halls to arrange a local emergency council, which would in time, become the nation's 5 man governing council, a month after Doomsday. The town’s Butlins camp was to be used as a refugee camp and storage facility. The nation would struggle with various raids by the tribesmen from Caernarvonshire.

When the word of what happen came, the towns called a town meeting in Penchain chapel. They decided to cut down one of the three local forests and put up new farms and start a rationing system. The wood would be utilised for defensive barriers, buildings and fuel. When they thought the U.K. perished, they seceded. On June, 8, 1964 they formed the City state of Pwllheli.

The town tried to maintain an independent and self-sufficient way of life, but with only managed to just hold on at best of times. A severe famine and a minor cholera outbreak hit the region, killing many people during 1963, 1965 and late 1966.

The locals would survive the next 22 years alone on a mixture of luck, good guesswork, rural crafts and agricultural knowhow.
