Mount September was founded as a spiritual successor to the declining Mount Augusta. It seeks to preserve the openness and culture of Mount Augusta albeit as a fresh nation and not an identical copy. Mount September occupies the northern half of an island formerly settled by the Maltovian territory of Compton.
Mount September borders Mount Augusta in the northeast. To the south, across the east-west road at Y: 2500, lies the abandoned territory of the Jeffersonian Nation of Eclipse. Mount September maintains underground rail connections to MtA, Westminster, Varkonia, Gabon, and more.
By August 2020 activity in Mount Augusta was at an all time low. The city state had officially moved to servers to CivRealms causing its Civclassic counterpart to be without a subreddit, constitution and eventually, discord server. Squareblob and Godomasta intended to revive CivClassics' MtA by slowly derelicting property, starting by HPOOM blvd. However, the effort it would have taken to acidblock and rebuild some of the infrastructure was deemed too high, and the prospect of a fresh start was too attractive. Construction in Mount September began on August 11th 2020. By September 2020 the basic forms of the downtown canal, roads and voter tree had been constructed.
Another debate was the legal one: the MtA constitution was too complex and stale, so a change was seen as necessary; there was some doubt as to whether it would be better to write a new constitution from scratch, or condense MtA's into a more friendly format. The r/MountSeptember subreddit was banned on September 3rd 2020 (The "sunken park" was built in honor of this event), and the former was deemed as a better alternative. The original constitution was drafted by AllenY, which after a brief revision period was ratified on September 30th 2020.
On December 23rd, 2020 an event that would forever change the September political landscape occured. What started as an innocuous road naming ceremony evolved into pure chaos after South Augusta's leader, TheOrangeWizard murdered squareblob, who was then mayor. The crowd in the event was launched into a frenetic chase that led to the eventual pearling and subsequent freeing of TheOrangeWizard, who angered at this act immediately pearled ChickenWingGeek. Three brave ill-equipped Septembrians rushed to reclaim TheOrangeWizard's pearl but they were all pearled. Negotiations between South Augusta and September soon started, inducing a strong backlash from the more critical sectors of society - the leader of this dissent, AllenY, was promptly pearled; thus crushing all opposition. The deal was to be sealed in Fort Briggs, however, AllenY removed Godomasta from groups mid-deal and locked TheOrangeWizard in the vault.
The ordeal ended when Wingzero54 teleported to TheOrangeWizard and accidentally let him through one of the doors, after which point he pearled minemaster - cooliomoose jumped in the vault and pearled TheOrangeWizard shortly after.
The MtS constitution describes its flag as: "a rectangular field, divided by a straight line from the bottom left corner to the upper right corner, the upper division being red and the lower division being blue". The color scheme is borrowed from Augusta's, and the diagonal division reminisces of Compton's flag (which uses black and green instead).
Bingus is a meme of a cat, the meme was first mentioned by topher3001 on the (Not) Civ Diplomacy discord channel and was quickly associated with the Big Chungus meme, presumably due to their similarities. It became a cultural phenomenon in Mount September early November 2020.
"Kill" is often used as a meme in September. It originates from a gif that shows a cat rapidly moving towards the viewer with the caption "kill", which topher3001 found slightly amusing; he started using the word frequently in voice and text channels until everyone else caught on.
