Anteria was founded on September 28th, 2015 by the individuals who are refered to as The Founders. The Founders of Anteria are not only the creators but overseers of the Region of Anteria. The Founders of Anteria are primary supervisors and administrators of day to day Anteria infrastructure and logistics but are not considered a part of the Ministry nor are they subjected to the Ministry of Anteria. However, the Founders limit their roles within the region to behind the scenes for the most part and police their conduct under the rule of law and the Concordat of Anteria which levels out their primary duties.
The main Administrator of Anteria is Prybourne who operates in Anteria alongside her fellow Founders Kilowatt and Velnotia. Historically, Arkorne and Zhengan were also Founders of Anteria before their cease of activity in 2017. While the Zhengan account still exists for administrative purposes of the Region of Anteria it is not a primary nation of anyone and instead is used by the Founders as a puppet administrator. It is also important to note that while Prybourne is the primary administrator, she does not overrule her fellow founders nor operate without their knowledge.
The region of Anteria currently operates as a Constitutional Electocracy which means citizens are able to vote for the Ministry in trimonthly, regional elections but do not participate directly in governmental decision making and instead the Minister of Anteria holds the responsibility as the primary Executive of the region tasked with the decision making and day to day functions of the Region. However, the Minister and his cabinet, which he or she selects, are still held accountable to our Constitution known as the Concordat of Anteria. The provisions for the Minister and his Ministry are outlined in Article I, Section 1-4. While the Minister holds the top position, there are several positions alongside him that make up the Ministry of Anteria; some demanded by the Concordat and some appointed by necessity or tradition.

The region of Anteria has existed for well over 4 years and has seen significant change from it's early days in 2015 to the way it operates now in 2020. The regional government saw several significant changes in organization as well as posts that were once needed establishing only to be replaced or removed later down the line. While the Region of Anteria has evolved and continues to, there are some posts that left a long lasting mark on Anteria and contributed to regional operations in a significant way.
Before the existence of the current Ministry of Anteria, governed by the Concordat of Anteria, the Delegate was instead the head of the delegation under the Concord of Anteria until the Delegation was replaced when the new Concordat came into force. The Delegate was the head of government of the Region of Anteria, stimulating Regional Development, writing new Regional Laws, overseeing the day to day functions of Anteria, representing Anteria domestically, moderating the different channels of Anteria, and appointing his cabinet. In addition, the Delegate was also a member of the World Assembly and was charged with representing Anteria in the World Assembly and in interregional relations. The Delegate role was abolished and split into the newly created Minister of Anteria position and the World Assembly Delegate position. The last Delegate of Anteria was Nerany who served August 1, 2018 - September 1, 2018 The last Vice Delegate of Anteria was Neuewland who served August 1, 2018 - September 1, 2018
Deputy Delegate/Junior Minister
The role of Deputy Delegate, later replaced by Junior Minister, was a position for those who were interested in running for regional government, but may believe to be too inexperienced or unaware of the roles of the government, to get first hand experience working with the Minister in conducting regional rule and day to day operations. This position was started by Prybourne as a way of encouraging those who wish to run to gain confidence and experience so that new executives could be cycled in and was traditionally appointed by each new, incoming executive. The position was abolished in 2020 at the request of Prybourne due the belief that it no longer served it's purpose and was just appointed to "please a quota" and the fact she believed the name led to misconception as the it was not a "Delegate/Minister" position nor stated in the Concordat leading to misrepresentation of role and seniority The last Deputy Delegate of Anteria was Tekkasland who served August 1, 2018 - September 1, 2018 The last Junior Minister of Anteria was Shadoveil who served November 1, 2019 - January 1, 2020
Officer of the Watch/Security Officer
The role of Officer of the Watch was an early conception of Prybourne as a Security Officer of the region who watched over the region when the Delegate and Founders were offline as an extra set of eyes. The responsibilities of the Officer of the Watch were border control tasked with keeping an eye on the incoming/outgoing nations of the region, influence and endorsements of nations, and closing off borders if necessary. Early in Anteria's development, due to its size, the region was at high risk of raiders due to its lack of WA nations, a founder account which was not being tended to, and a limited time frame on which the Delegate and Founders could be online. the Officer of the Watch was renamed Security Officer in 2018 however didn't last much longer. As the region grew in number and in WA strength as well as the Founder account of Zhengan now being accessible by the other founders, became obsolete and was abolished late 2018. The last Officer of the Watch of Anteria was Astariax who served April 1, 2016 - February 1, 2018 The last Security Officer of Anteria was Hofflandian union who served August 1, 2018 - November 1, 2018
The role of the Recruitment Office was an early conception of the founders to recruit for Anteria from a puppet nation that the founders shared for the purpose of a joint, recruitment effort. However, due to the changing infrastructure and efforts by later, non-Founder delegates the Office went mostly unused and was abolished early in Anteria's existence.
The Recruitment Office held soley by Anteria recruitment office September 28, 2015 - April 1, 2016
