The nation was founded 10 May 2019 by the current president, Austin Love, after reading about Kevin Baugh and his nation, the Republic of Molossia, in the previous months. Molossia and Baugh served as the main inspiration for Austin Love, who decided to make the new nation a presidential republic. A few months later, on 7 July 2019, President Love decided to have his nation transition to a federal republic composed of three states.
He soon started to properly develop his nation and get it more involved in the wider micronational community.
Geography and climate
Paragotnia is composed of three states and one district; they are Housein, Hillred, and Woodland, and the Capital District. The state of Housein is a highly urbanised state (similar to the Capital District) with urban living conditions and its surface being largely covered in buildings. It also is home to the capital of Paragotnia, West Brynston (Formerly Roselake). On the other hand, Woodland and Hillred don't currently have any permanent residents. Woodland took its name from the woods covering its territory, while Hillred took its name from the hilly terrain of the state, and from the distinct reddish color of the soil located in Hillred.
Paragotnia currently has a relatively small military, with only one branch the Paragotnian Armed Forces. The military infrastructure of Paragotnia, however, is still under development, with the armed forces only having a land division, no naval and air forces are currently existing.
The current PAF ranks are:
- Private 1st Class
- Sergeant 1st Class
- Lieutenant Colonel
- Major General
- Lieutenant General
- 1st General
- 2nd General
