War ended on March 6th, when Republic of Arran gave up their claim of Arran, and their claim of Independence from the Austrar Islands. On March 10th tensions were high between Austrars ally Smithville and the now defunct Kingdom of Korea. Kingdom of Korea got the Sangheili Union and Unironia involved on the conflict, and Smithville called on Austrar islands and Catland for support, this conflict lead to Micronational World War One or commonly abbreviated to MWWI.

On March 15th deadly Plan Red was created by the Smithville Government, only shared with Austrar Islands, to overthrow Kingdom of Korea. This failed, and tensions were higher, and finally Sangheili Union declared war on the Republic of Smithville by invading them via Ohio.
