In a new decree made by Lord Henry of the Commonwealth, some shocking and surprising changes are being made in the Essian Commonwealth, the first being a change in the nation’s name. Esse is now known as the Mystic Jubbia of the Harrifans.
His Harrifanatic Majesty, Lord Henry has also changed his title and has declared the national currency to by the Jubbian Dollar, money that appears to parody the US dollar, but with the addition of George Harrison.
The Lord claims these actions to be completely serious, saying “you think I’m kidding? Bet.” The action has the full support of the Clementine population of the country.
He has also “created” a new flag, which in short is a picture of George Harrison from the cover of the Beatles’ album A Hard Day’s Night. The Coat of Arms is a picture of an original record of the album Abbey Road.
Henry says that to the intermicronational world, he expects the “utmost respect of the name change,” and insists that “if the Essian population throws a fit, it’ll be changed to normal within 24 hours.” He still insists, nevertheless, that he has the nation’s support.
It is well-documented that Esse has a strong musical culture, primarily focused around the Beatles. Nevertheless, this is an extreme step in that direction, essentially making the nation a culturally-themed state.
Henry has also implied that a referendum on the name might be held in the future.
Whether there will be any more changes has yet to be determined, however Henry has hinted that he does intend to see increased cultural development. Perhaps this could be a system to go about doing that.
Bear in mind that none of this information has been confirmed as accurate.
