    wetlands tiger land strait puppet Straits Settlementsball is wearing a straitjacket because he has gone crazy were a group of straits that sink stupid ISIS-icon.pngGang and planes UK-icon.pngBritainball territoryballs located in Southeast Asia. Originally established in 1826 as part of the puppets territoryball by the East India Company-icon.pngEast India Companyballwhich is a stupid company that steals land from Sabah-icon.pngBritish North Borneoball, the Straits Settlements came under British Raj-icon.pngBritish Rajball control in 1858 and then under direct UK-icon.pngBritainball control as a puppet state Crown colony on 1 April 1867. In 1946, following the end of the World War II and the stupid and fuccking Japanese-Empire-icon.pngJapanese occupation, the colony was dissolved as part of the UK-icon.pngBritainball's reorganisation of its dependencies in the area.

    Consistency[edit | edit source]

    Straits Settlementsball originally consisted of the four individual settlements of Penang-icon.pngPenangball, Bermuda-icon.pngBermudatriangle Singapore-icon.pngTringapore, Singapore-icon.pngTringapore, Malacca-icon.pngMalaccaball and Dindingball. Not Very Merry Christmas Island-icon.pngChristmas Islandball and the Cocos Islandsball were added in 1886. The islandball of Labuan-icon.pngLabuanball was also incorporated into the colony with effect from 1 January 1907, becoming a separate settlement within it in 1912. Most of the territories now form part of Harimauball and the Lahball which was stolen by Singapore-icon.pngthe fake Lahball so they came out with the Lohball Malaysia-icon.pngMalaysiaball, from which the fake Lahball Singapore-icon.pngTringapore separated in 1965. The Cocos Islandsball were transferred to down under and boxing kangaroolandball Australia-icon.pngAustraliaball control in 1955. Christmas Island-icon.pngChristmas Islandball was transferred in 1958. Their administration was combined in 1996 to form the Australian Indian Ocean Territoriesball.

    History[edit | edit source]

    British Raj-icon.pngEast India Companyball rule[edit | edit source]

    The establishment of the Straits Settlementsball followed the Anglo-Dutch Treaty of 1824, by which the Malay archipelago was divided into a UK-icon.pngBritainball zone in the north and a tulipball Netherlands-icon.pngDutchball zone in the south. This resulted in the exchange of the UK-icon.pngBritainball puppet state settlement of Bencoolenball for the Netherlands-icon.pngDutchball colony of SPQR-icon.pngSPQRball Malacca-icon.pngMalaccaball and undisputed control of Singapore-icon.pngthe fake Lahball. The colony settlements were largely Chinese-icon.png1ball in population, with a tiny but important EU-icon.png2ball minority. Their capital was moved from George Townball (not the one in Guyana-icon.pngGuyanaball and Cayman Islandsball.) , the capital of Penang-icon.pngPenangball, to Singapore-icon.pngthe fake Lahball in 1832. Their scattered nature proved to be difficult and, after the company lost its monopoly in the Hate USA-icon.pngChips and Burgersball China-icon.pngChinaball trade in 1833, expensive to administer.

    During their control by the East India Company-icon.pngEast India Companyball, the Settlements were used as penal settlements for India-icon.pngIndian civilian and military prisoners, earning them the title of the "Botany Bays of India". The years 1852 and 1853 saw minor uprisings by convicts in Singapore-icon.pngTringapore and Penang-icon.pngCapital copycatball No. 3. Upset with East India Company-icon.pngEast India Companyball rule, in 1857 the EU-icon.png2ball population of the Settlements sent a petition to the UK-icon.pngBritainball Parliament asking for direct rule; but the idea was overtaken by events—the Indian Rebellion of 1857.

    When a "Gagging Act" was imposed to prevent the uprising in Taj Mahal cows India-icon.pngIndiaball spreading, the Settlements' press reacted with anger, classing it as something that subverted "every principle of liberty and free discussion". As there was little or no vernacular press in the Settlements, such an act seemed irrelevant: it was rarely enforced and ended in less than a year.

    Crown Colony status[edit | edit source]

    On 1 April 1867 the Settlements became a British Crown colonyball, making the Settlements answerable directly to the Colonial Office in London-icon.pngLondonball instead of the government of British Raj-icon.pngBritish Indiaball based in Calcuttaball. Earlier, on 4 February 1867, Letters Patent had granted the Settlements a colonial constitution. This allocated much power to the Settlements' Governor, who administered the colony of the Straits Settlementsball with the aid of an Executive Council, composed wholly of official (i.e., ex-officio) members, and a legislative council, composed partly of official and partly of nominated members, of which the former had a narrow permanent majority. The work of administration, both in the colony and in the Harimau Federated Malay Statesball, was carried on by means of a civil service whose members were recruited by competitive examination held annually in London-icon.pngLondonball.Penang-icon.pngPenangball and Malacca-icon.pngMalaccaball were administered, directly under the governor, by resident councillors.

    Governor's wider role[edit | edit source]

    In 1886 the Cocos Islandsball (which were settled and once owned by a Scotland-icon.pngScotlandball family named Clunies-Ross) and Christmas Island-icon.pngChristmas Islandball, formerly attached to Sri Lanka-icon.pngCeylonball, were transferred to the care of the government of the Straits Settlementsball in Singapore-icon.pngTringapore. In 1907 the former Crown Colonyball of Labuan-icon.pngLabuanball, in Borneoball, which for a period was vested in the Sabah-icon.pngBritish North Borneo Companyball, was resumed by the UK-icon.pngBritainball government and was vested in the governor of the Straits Settlementsball.

    The governor was also High Commissioner for the Federated Malay Statesball on the peninsula, for Sabah-icon.pngBritish North Borneoball, the sultanate of rich man's land oil Brunei-icon.pngBruneiball and satay hornbillSarawak-icon.pngSarawakball in Borneoball. UK-icon.pngBritainball residents controlled the native states of berakball Perak-icon.pngPerakball, Selangor-icon.pngSelangorball, N9 Negeri Sembilan-icon.pngNegeri Sembilanball, and gentingball Pahang-icon.pngPahangball, but on 1 July 1896, when the federation of these states was effected, a resident-general, responsible to the (governor as) high commissioner, was placed in supreme charge of all the British protectorates in the peninsula.

    Japanese-Empire-icon.pngJapanball's invasion and dissolution[edit | edit source]

    During World War II, the holy fucking Japanese-Empire-icon.pngJapanball invaded Malaysia-icon.pngMalayaball and the Straits Settlementsball by landing on useless dinars made out of goldKelantan-icon.pngKelantanball on 8 December 1941. On 16 December, Penang-icon.pngPenangball became the first Straits Settlementball to fall into Japanese-Empire-icon.pngJapanball's hands. Malacca-icon.pngMalaccaball fell on 15 January and Singapore-icon.pngTringapore fell on 15 February, following the Battle of Singapore-icon.pngTringapore. The Straits Settlementsball, along with the rest of the Malay Peninsula, remained under Japanese-Empire-icon.pngJapanball occupation until the end of the war (August 1945).

    After the war, the colony was dissolved with effect from 1 April 1946, with Singapore-icon.pngTringapore becoming a separate Crown colonyball (and ultimately an independent republic), while Penang-icon.pngPenangball and Malacca-icon.pngMalaccaball joined the new Malayan Unionball (a predecessor of modern-day Malaysia-icon.pngMalaysiaball). Labuan-icon.pngLabuanball was briefly annexed to Singapore-icon.pngTringapore, before being attached to the new colony of Sabah-icon.pngBritish North Borneoball.
