Flamingo Ninja resently got its independence from Mulgaria in a peaceful agreement. The Finja High Council meet with Mulgarian leaders in Augest of 2006 to talk about it independence. Flamingo Ninja had been a colony of Mulgaria for a while and Finja leaders and their people wanted to be seperated from Mulgaria. A two months later, Flamingo Ninja held its first election and declared its self its own country. The constitution that they adopt was very simular to Mulgaria's and few changes were made.

Until resently, Flamingo Ninja had seen limited violence between it Muslim and Jewish citizens until a car bombing outside of the United Conservative Party headquarters. The United Conservative Party is a mostly Jewish political party. The bomb killed seven people and injured eleven. Among the injured was Secretary of Defense, Eric Montovo. A Jewish Synagogue was also bombed the same day. Fourteen were killed and nineteen were injured. The Groupe Radical Islamique has claimed responsibility for these attacks. A few days ago, Jewish Vice President Adam Swanson was hit by a bullet in his chest during a failed assassination attempt. President Whitworth has asked for outside help in finding the source of these attacks and to protect its citizens.
