- Initial results showed a tie between Schwertesia and Whisperburg (formerly known as Smithtown), with both candidates receiving five votes and Whisperburg later having a slight lead at six votes by the end of the election. However, Schwertesia was announced as the winner, and the nation has since disbanded and would become Whisperburg, thus leading to Schwertesia taking office following the election. ↩︎
