< The Aerican Empire

The Seventh Annual International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day contest has begun. As part of our twenty-fifth anniversary celebrations in May, the Empire welcomed one new colony into our midst, and the new colony's selection was turned into the 2012 International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day Contest.

Between March 4th and March 31st, interested citizens came up with and submitted ideas for a new colony. Proposals were then sent to the Senate, who chose the winner by vote.The winning proposal was written by Keith Byron Smith, with a proposal for an as-yet unnamed 90-acre territory. The Senate's voting, and the discussion leading up to it, can be seen at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Aerican_Senate/message/1630. The new colony officially became a colony of the Empire on the 8th of May, 2012.
