The Confederate States of Occitania was founded the on the 7th June, 2015. Following the creation of the micronation, a military council took control of the Confederation, with absolute authority. Later that month, on 27th June, 2015, the council appointed Didier Montaudran as the President of Occitania, and worked with him to rewrite the constitution and put democratic reforms into place.
On the 20th July, 2015, after the Russian ruble (to which Occitania's own currency, also known as the ruble) was tied, President Montaudran removed the Ministers of Customs and Finances from office, ended use of the Occitan ruble and dissolved the central bank. Since then, the Occitan government has been seeking a micronation with which to form a currency union.
On the 28th July, 2015, the elections are postponed by the serviceman Babou Chkaya and his extreme right-wing party.Since the country got closer to Russia.
The confederation is divided into three oblasts: Nassau Oblast, Transvaal Oblast and Oranje Oblast.
