The Independent Republic of Gyrorik was short-lived country, consisting of the modern day city of Gyrorik, in The Great Central Valley province of Molvania. Gyrorik had developed differently from the rest of the surrounding areas of Molvania, developing its own government, army, culture, language and even disease. Eventually, the people of Gyrorik feared that their unique culture would be destroyed if it continued to be a part of Molvania, and in 900 A.D., Gyrorik declared its independence, fully expecting the rest of Molvania would attempt to stop them. Much to their surprise, the Molvanians gladly helped Gyrorik secede from Molvania, even giving them capital to speed the process. However, in 903 A.D., the Independent Republic of Gyrorik dissolved when its citizen voted to rejoin Molvania.
