Matachewan is a [[w:Poland|Polish]] [[Micronation]] that was created by [[Brandon Mierzwa]] on 30 June [[2015]]. The name Matachewan comes from the Matachewan First Nation and means "Meeting of the Waters". The nation was named after Fort Matachewan a former Gold Mining Community just south of Timmins Ontario. Matachewan is a very Polish based micronation as many of the national symbols are Polish. The Military and Currencies also take from the Polish Culture. Matachewan's official name is the Grand Kingdom of Matachewan although many in the micronational community just refer to Matachewan as Matachewan.

== Etymology ==

The '''Commonwealth of Polonia''', more commonly known as simply '''Polonia''' is a self-declared sovereign-state. Located primarily in [[w:Ontario|Ontario]], [[w:Canada|Canada]], it is geographically composed of several houses and open green spaces. It has both a local and online presence but maintains a primarily local presence.

{{main|History of Matachewan}}
  
The name of Matachewan came from its original geographical location. The word Matachewan comes from the Matachewan First Nation that first settled Matachewan and the word means "Meeting of the Waters". The word doesn't have an official origin on why it was created but we like to believe that the Matachewan First Nation made and named themselves off the Upper and Lower Matachewanian Lakes that feed into the Montreal River.

===Founding===

[[File:Recreation_of_Matachewan's_Declaration_of_Independence.png|200px|thumb|left|Recreation of the Lost Poloniaian Declaration of Independence]]
 +
The '''Grand Kingdom of Polonia''' (Polonia non-formal) was created on the 30 June [[2015]]<ref name="MatachewanRemarks"> Lycon, Jayden [https://docs.google.com/document/d/1D2YSkyFmRD8O9mCgfmHKOzJ-lG5gog1-tg5PuBPVG1Q/edit Matachewan Remarks] </ref> in Polonia Ontario. The first era or '''Early Polonia''' as it came to be known as was a small and basic nation state with hopes to eventually become a large micronation. The time between [[2015]] and now was filled with hardship, struggle, joy and enthusiasm. Polonia as it started out had 7 citizens, all of which were local. This first Polonia was very Russian-Polish based with many state symbols resembling those of Tsarist styled emblems and heraldry. This early Polonia was ruled by a Council consisting of 5 citizens. This council could often be referred to as the '''First Sejm of Polonia''' however this is not the case it would be more appropriate and fitting to refer to it as the '''First Parliament''' or '''First Council''' of Polonia. Sadly this era was not to last. The reasoning for its demise was the lack of knowledge in politics and ruling along with the lack of funding or attention. Polonia was not seen again till mid [[2018]].
  
Matachewan never had a Demonym and just went by Matachewan until 3 December 2018 when King Brandon Mierzwa introduced "Matachewanian" adding "''-ian''" to the end of Matachewan.
+
===2018 - 2019===
 +
[[File:Flag of Matachewan.png|200px|thumb|right|First Flag of Polonia]]
 +
On August 3 [[2018]] Polonia began public operations. On 27 August [[2018]] one of Polonia's first global citizen joined, the citizen was Owen Leski. Mr. Leski was a pure libertarian looking to bring more freedom and less government control over Polonia. Mr. Leski along with Mr. Kamiron Chaisson and Mr. Krill Lyzhin started the first "modern" Poloniaian Government. This government was very ineffective leading to massive inactivity in the server and without any local assets the early Poloniaian state looked as if it was going to die out. It wasn't till October when Polonia decided to pull a very odd move and declare war on [[Nerdystan]] a Republic protected by the [[Kingdom of Auvenum]]. This "war" was to be known as the [[Robertson Sea Conflict]] where Polonia, [[Kingdom of Auvenum]] and the [[Fifth Aenderian Republic]] engaged in a war or words over discord. Eventually the "conflict" came to a close and Polonia started rebuilding relations with Auvenum and Nerdystan. In December of [[2018]] Polonia became inactive yet again and again almost died out before it met the nation of [[Kingdom of Groponigën|Groponigën]].

====Kingdom of Groponigën and Polonia====
 +
In January [[2019]] after seeing the success of Groponigën, Polonia entered a union with Groponigën in hopes Groponigën citizens would flood to Polonia and Polonia could grow into a large active micronation. Sadly after Polonia wasn't given any aid from Groponigën and Groponigën tried lowering the autonomy of Polonia, [[Brandon Mierzwa]] the King in Exile decided to work with Peter Warren a politician from Groponigën and the leader of the Groponigën Conservatives. After Peter and Brandon's plan to create a new Polonia was leaked to Groponigën officials Brandon and Peter were put on trial and found guilty of treason. Brandon sick of the lack of representation declared independence from Groponigën stating that Polonia was a free Kingdom and Groponigën would be powerless to stop Polonia. Eventually the whole thing was dropped and Polonia was released by Groponigën. After these events Polonia's and Groponigën's relationship never healed even after attempts to fix the very broken trust between the two nations.

====March - May 2019====

[[File:Matachewanian_Imperial_Restoration.png|200px|thumb|left|Poloniaian Declaration of Imperial Rule]]
 +
Polonia was known between March and May as the 5th Kingdom of Polonia. After Polonia regained independence Polonia became more popular attracting many micronationalists and people from other communities alike. Eventually Polonia crossed the 50 global citizen mark and became a larger micronation that had a strong government with a supportive and working globalized population. During this time the Poloniaian Parliament became known as the Sejm of Polonia and the people were more politically driven than ever before. Sadly this was not to last because Polonia eventually elected Ágá Sárrajuoksa a politician from Polonia's former oppressor. Mr. Sárrajuoksa promised sweeping change to Polonia in order to reform it into a democratic state. After a 2 week term 13 April rolled around and then began the '''Poloniaian Radio Scandal of 13 April''' a scandal where the politically divided citizens and parties openly started attacking each other and destroying much of the hard work set up by the globalized Kingdom. During this time the Libertarian Party led by Ágá Sárrajuoksa threatened to remove the King [[Brandon Mierzwa]]'s powers and make Polonia a true Republic. This was successful at first leading to massive political fighting, the [[Fifth Aenderian Republic]] cut recognition of Polonia along with many other micronations and Polonia became a heaping mess. On 27 April the Sejm was officially suspended and Imperial Restoration was ordered to return the monarchy's grip on the nation. On this same day Grand Prince Jakub, [[Brandon Mierzwa]]'s cousin and the current successor of the Poloniaian throne was born. After Imperial restoration was declared Polonia rebuilt itself finally removing all rebellious citizens and all diplomats who turned their back on Polonia. In May of 2019 the Kingdom of Polonia reached out to the Kingdom of New Prussia led by Kleinmann Kummel. On 14 May Polonia and New Prussia along with the Principality of Kaiserhof and the Kingdom of Edgemont went into negotiations concerning a proposed Poloniaian-Prussian Commonwealth. On 17 May [[2019]] this Commonwealth became a reality.

[[File:Kleinmann_Abdicating.png|200px|thumb|right|Kleinmann Kummel favouring Personal Union]]
 +
The Poloniaian-Prussian Commonwealth became official on the 23 May [[2019]] with the signing of the [https://docs.google.com/document/d/1qKUUWmzk-QqiMKIhUK4yZMzqK_hRSYMkJOIE9fl2QG8/edit?usp=sharing| New Krakow-Küstenstadt Act]. This treaty made Polonia and Prussia a single unified nation with a Dual Monarchy and single unified legislature. This was to be known as the '''Early Commonwealth Era''' where Polonia and Prussia were still trying to figure out what it wanted to be and what it was to become. Polonia-Prussia grew very rapidly during the month of May growing over 100 global citizens and passing most other micronations. The first conflict to involve Polonia-Prussia was around 1 June when Polonia-Prussia had conflicts with the Kingdom of Sewanda. After the victory of this conflict where Polonia-Prussian raiders took a decisive win in a raid against Sewanda the Commonwealth realized they were better off together. The first hiccup occurred on 15 June [[2019]] when Kleinmann Kummel abdicated in favour of personal union with Polonia. Thus the Poloniaian-Prussian Commonwealth was made into a single unified country with one crown and one government. Sadly this wouldn't last long either as [[Brandon Mierzwa]] already having played a massive role in the Commonwealth abdicated for no good reason. Eventually after some bitter debate Kleinmann was installed as King and took control over the Commonwealth. With Kleinmann at the helm the Commonwealth prospered, it grew past the 150 global citizens mark and started opening relations with the [[Grand Republic of Cycoldia]]. During this time [[Brandon Mierzwa]] returned to Poloniaian politics and ran for Prime Minister of the Commonwealth. As expected this also was not to last because on the 22 July [[2019]] Kleinmann announced the end of the Commonwealth officially ending Polonia and Prussia. In the confusion [[Brandon Mierzwa]] jumped on the opportunity and declared the Grand Kingdom of Polonia to be the only legitimate successor of Polonia-Prussia and on 23 July [[2019]] [[Brandon Mierzwa]] became King of Polonia again.

The Grand Kingdom of Matachewan was founded in June 2015 under the Independent City of Matachewan by Brandon Mierzwa. The nation was like any other growing micronation at the time, it was proud in its work and it tried to look and strive for a better future. Matachewan wasn't widely known at this time and refused to move onto the internet.
+
===Grand Kingdom of Polonia===
 +
The Grand Kingdom of Polonia was formed immediately after the Poloniaian-Prussian Commonwealth. The Grand Kingdom has overcome many challenges and has become the most successful and stable Polonia after Polonia's 5 year history.
  
=====Matachewanian Civil War=====
+
====August - November 2019====
Like most micronations back in 2015, Matachewan felt like it was necessary to get involved in some sort of conflict and apparently that conflict was with itself. Matachewan did fight small land battles around its claimed territory but nothing was to become of this and the country eventually died off.
+

 +
During the early months of the Grand Kingdom of Polonia, Polonia was rebuilding itself to become finally what it always wanted to be, a great micronational power or at least great micronation. To do this [[Brandon Mierzwa]], Peter Warren and a few others realized they needed to get serious and after 1 month of Peter's administration the first free Poloniaian Election was held on 1 September [[2019]] with a Monarchist victory allowing Peter to secure the office of Prime Minister for another term. After minimal progress in September something had to be done. Christopher Miller the leader of the Progress Party decided to run again in the October elections and beat Peter Warren. After this Mr. Miller began implementing reform after reform to create a perfect or somewhat perfect Polonia. On 2 October [[2019]] Miller created the [[Progressive Conservative Party (Matachewan)|Progressive Conservative Party of Polonia]] officially starting the first Progressive Conservative Administration. The Progressive Conservatives wished to localize Polonia something never done or tried by other parties. At first localization was slow but ultimately successful. After Mr. Miller's term concluded in October the November elections started and the Progressive Conservatives won another landslide victory. During this time more locals flocked to Polonia and Polonia started to draw the attention of larger micronations.

The Grand Poloniaian Commonwealth was formed in November [[2019]] by Polonia, [[Kingdom of Humberlea|Humberlea]], Duchy of Antranador, United Sonoran Emirates of Okka, Principality of Jokyr and Principality of Trumar. The Commonwealth's sole intention was to create a large united confederation of states under Polonia. Another reason was to try and restore the glory of the old Poloniaian-Prussian Commonwealth. During this time Polonia continued to develop itself while attempting to support nations like Humberlea and Antranador. During the life of the Commonwealth a certain man by the name of Zech O'Hair was removed from the Sejm on the supposed reasoning of attempting to abolish the monarchy, a very punishable offence in the Kingdom at the time. In a fit of rage Christopher Miller revoked all recognition of the Empire of Etukan and to this day the Grand Kingdom refuses to accept Etukan's existence. It was also during this time when Humberlea was raided by Zech and a few or his loyalists after losing an election in Humberlea to Polonia supported Yuriy Aleksander.
  
=== 2018 and Matachewan ===

===A New Year a New Polonia===
 +
On 1 January [[2020]], Brandon Mierzwa announced a new Poloniaian year now entering the 5 year anniversary of independence for 30 June [[2020]]. Polonia was to enter a new era, the 20s, Polonia was ready and prepared to jump into [[2020]] as soon as it could and promised to the global governments that a meeting of locals will be held. This promise was upheld because soon after Christmas break Polonia's Government met up to officially create the First Local Sejm.
  
==== August - October ====
+
====First Local Sejm of Polonia====
 +
[[File:Sejm Picture Jan 2020.png|100px|thumb|left|The First Local Sejm Meeting (Left: Simon Fraser, Jessica Mierzwa. Center: Brandon Mierzwa. Right: Beau Edwards, Rowan Long)]]
 +
On 9 January [[2020]], HM Brandon I, summoned Poloniaian local politicians and intellectuals to make up the first Local Sejm. Just before the meeting that afternoon, Beau Edwards, Simon Fraser and Brandon Mierzwa all agreed to meet up at the capital building to appoint Polonia's Council of Generals. On that night of training more Poloniaians living in Oblate City joined them, most notably Liam Carey and Rowan Long, Liam Carey having more importance as he and Brandon originally came up with the idea of Polonia. At 6:00pm the appointments were concluded and Brandon summoned, Simon Fraser, Beau Edwards, Jessica Mierzwa and Rowan Long to serve as the first members of the Local Sejm. After a lengthy discussion on Poloniaian affairs the Sejm unanimously elected Beau Edwards as the first Local Prime Minister of Polonia. After the successful meeting Polonia has not called another meeting since. The government hopes that in the coming months that another Sejm meeting will be called.
  
After two long years of no national progress and absolutely no activity, Matachewan eventually came back on 3 August 2018, as the Kingdom of Matachewan. The Kingdom of Matachewan was a small discord dependent micronation with nothing really going for it until it meat the [[Fifth Aenderian Republic]] and Auvenum. Matachewan was to get involved in some conflict between the two nations eventually leading the Matachewanian-Nerdystanian War which was never physically fought and is really just a relic of when Matachewan was more of a simulationist state.
+
====End of the Commonwealth====
  
==== November - December ====
+
In February of [[2020]] [[Brandon Mierzwa]] announced the dissolution of the Poloniaian Commonwealth, with Commonwealth member states - for example, the Antranador Federation and Okka - being granted full independence. The Commonwealth's reason for dissolving was due to the fact that the Commonwealth ran its course and could no longer support its member states.
 +
====March - April====
 +
In March of [[2020]] the Grand Kingdom of Polonia made a decision that would eventually lead to political unrest, this unrest and fighting eventually led up to the [[Battle of Williamsburg]] and more radicalized politics, it felt like 2019 all over again however this time Polonia put its foot down and fought the problems before they could lead to anything serious.
  
===== Auvenum and the Final Days of the Robertson Sea Conflict =====
+
In March, political champion, [[Christopher Miller]] came out of the February election victorious, this came as no surprise as he won all the elections before that excluding the December election and August election. After some talks about creating a Poloniaian colonial system, King Brandon and Christopher introduced the Poloniaian Colonial Office so that globalized citizens outside of Poloniaian borders could register their property or local territory as a colony. This idea was met with mixed reactions however it was accepted as a good attempt to allow globals to enjoy the many things that localized Poloniaian citizens could enjoy.

===== Early Days of the Micronational Assembly and Transition of Power =====
+
One day a man only by the name of Fredrick arrived in Polonia, at the time regarded as a fine lad who was interested in Poloniaian colonialism. After he became a citizen he created the colony of New Augustine, named after the Poloniaian local city of St. Augustine. New Augustine, from the reports given by Fredrick, was a growing successful colony however things started to go south when promises to bring Fredrick into the Sejm were declined. It isn't known what happened in the span of a few days and it is not generally accepted by either side to draw assumed conclusions. Near late March, Polonia and [[Empire of Etukan|Etukan]] finally started to show resentment towards each other for political and personal affiliations, it is believed by Polonia that the signed Polonia-Etukan Agreement was broken by Etukan first by undermining and breaching Polonia's agreed neutrality. However by Etukan it is believed Polonia broke the treaty by denouncing Etukan as a whole and labeling it as a failed state. Whatever the matter was or which side you hear it from Polonia and Etukan can both agree the treaty was broken. In response the tensions and breakdowns of negotiations, Etukan's ally, the Yedinist Republic of New Prussia decided to take negotiations into their own hands and when the talks broke down they declared "war" on Polonia. To this day Polonia and New Prussia are still at war however Polonia refused to recognize the legitimacy of the document and government of New Prussia due to the former Humberlean disputes over the crown of New Prussia as well as refusing the war as New Prussia has no borders with Polonia. It is not known what happened but this war has never ended and has never been fought and to this day Polonia still refuses to accept that a state of war exists since the declaration is outlandish and illegitimate.

===== End of 2018 =====
+
Now the scene was set and Polonia had itself a choice, return to Etukan under the treaty or continue its attempt at full diplomatic isolation and neutrality. As expected Polonia chose option two and decided to refuse talks with Etukara officials. So the facts as they were, Etukan and Polonia were angry, New Prussia declared an unrecognized war and New Augustine was upset due to their own agenda, something was to start a conflict but what? Well it just so happened New Augustine was located next to the Etukara Delaware Colony. So Etukan seizing the opportunity, they organized a pitched battle with Polonia in New Augustine in the territory of Williamsburg. Polonia, not having enough military in the area called on the colony to assemble a militia force and King Brandon I personally promoted Fredrick to General Broni to take command of the militia. Polonia's militia was out matched numerically and logistically. The militia could only arm themselves with sticks and nurf guns while the Etukara unit had bamboo pikes and bangers. The two forces met at Williamsburg and engaged, the outnumbered Poloniaians attempted to flank Etukan's forces and steal equipment however the flank was countered and Polonia suffered two casualties (Both physical blows to the legs and torsos). Eventually after some more fighting the militia broke ranks and made a disorganized retreat. The battle was a humiliation to Polonia but to Brandon and Christopher they still celebrated because although our soldiers came home wounded and beat they still fought and they should still be honored. Brandon encouraged Fredrick to open a second front and fight another battle however Fredward had enough and with support of Etukan surrendered the colony to Etukara forces and declared the Principality of New Augustine an independent nation. After some time New Augustine created the Fourth Republic of Polonia, a breakaway state with hardly any recognition. It is not generally recognized as Polonia. In response to this Polonia sent spies to coup their government, which failed however to this day most of the government and online assets of the illegitimate Republic are made up of Brandon's loyalists and work as spies to inform him of everyday activity which is at an all time low.
  
== Politics ==
+
After the major hit Christopher Miller resigned as Premier and on 5 April [[2020]] [[Christina I of Cycoldia|Christina Nowell]] was elected Premier of Polonia.
=== Sejm of Matachewan===
 
  
==== Early Sejm ====
+
====April - July====
  
The first legislature of Matachewan was not called the Sejm but rather just Parliament. The early Parliament (Sejm) had many power problems and was inefficient since its beginning terms. The problems with the Parliament became evident when the democratically elected officials started pushing for more democratic offices and eventually proposed cutting the Monarchy's control of Parliament. After a week of bitter discussion and debate the Monarchy removed the members of Parliament eventually leading to a 2nd Republic and then a 6th Monarchy and then back to a stable nation. It was on May 16th when the first reference to the word Sejm was used when speaking about Matachewanian Parliament.
+
During the months of April to July the Poloniaian political scene was very active with many political debates, fights, and agreements happening almost everyday.  
  
==== 2019 - Present ====
+
After the embarrassing defeat at Williamsburg, Christopher Miller resigned, and [[Christina I of Cycoldia|Christina Nowell]] was voted into office with her local partner Simon Fraser. After the election Christina was met with opposition from Robert Smith, at the time a Pro-Con politician, who questioned the legitimacy of Christina's power and the December Constitution. Robert Smith gave many valid points that the December Constitution was never formally declared void. This led [[Brandon Mierzwa]] to officially make a royal decree declaring the Constitution of December 2019 void. This action was not positively perceived by the population. After the constitution was no longer in effect the [[Sejm of Matachewan|Sejm]] had become a disorganized institution which eventually led to its suspension.
  
=== Leaders of State ===
+
Eventually Christina Nowell had enough and Robert was tried with "Sejm tampering" and eventually treason. Once the news had broken out the Poloniaian government passed the Treason Act which defined treason for the time being. Robert Smith having already stated that the charges put on him were unjustified the Christina Administration refused to let him speak on his own behalf. After irrelevant evidence was produced against Robert the trial had finally begun after 1 month of delay. The trial was headed by [[Brandon Mierzwa]] who served as judge while Christina Nowell represented the crown and Robert Smith the defense. The trial lasted almost one week and once it was concluded [[Brandon Mierzwa]] had influenced the Jury that Robert was innocent, which indeed he was. Later it was leaked that Brandon had tampered with the trial Christina stated that she would "Bend Poloniaian Law". Once this too had been leaked to the Poloniaian Weekly, Brandon finally put his foot down and demanded Christina resign. With no formal resignation Brandon called upon the local [[Matachewanian Armed Forces|Poloniaian Armed Forces]] to suspend the Sejm and take direct control of Polonia. On 15 May [[2020]] the Poloniaian Armed Forces had complete control of the country and Nicholas Lokin served as "Premier" until 1 June.

On 1 August [[2020]] Christopher Miller was elected Premier with help of the Coalition which at the time contained the [[Conservative League|Conservative League of Polonia]], United Northern Liberals, [[Solidarity Party of Matachewan|Solidarity Party of Polonia]], and the [[Patriotic Front (Matachewan)|Patriotic Front]] Successfully defeating Robert Smith. A record of 30 people voted in the Premier election along with 20 citizens voting in the Sejm elections. The Coalition also came into power with a 8/12 super majority in Sejm<ref> [https://docs.google.com/document/d/1euH8NaPpynzToMvkIOgMNRnFZOvJO7aetaPmohJCBIo/edit?usp=sharing Sejm Bill #020] </ref>. Andreas Hudson was declared speaker of Sejm unopposed. A few bills were passed in the Sejm, Sejm Bill #020 which ratified the documents needed to apply into the Cupertino Alliance, [https://docs.google.com/document/d/1iNijE2Ype80xKU9SNfyfwQsE_k7PT6UBXA_l954-hdU/edit?usp=drivesdk Amendment 002] that would clarify in the constitution that at the start of a new Sejm the previously elected speaker would be the one to hold elections for their replacement<ref> [https://docs.google.com/document/d/1iNijE2Ype80xKU9SNfyfwQsE_k7PT6UBXA_l954-hdU/edit?usp=drivesdk Amendment 002]</ref>, The [https://docs.google.com/document/d/1iNijE2Ype80xKU9SNfyfwQsE_k7PT6UBXA_l954-hdU/edit?usp=drivesdk Justice Reform Act] that would change the way Justices were appointed to the court by cutting the premier out of the process and instead have the King pick a candidate that then must pass a bar exam created by a independent committee and then a referendum must be held where 50% of the population must approve of the Judge. It would also categorize offences into 3 groups<ref> [https://docs.google.com/document/d/1VarxkIIUwJHso7dH-SzN76UhXjIRvQt3b4Ft5nqZ-OM/edit Justice Reform Act] </ref>:

The month of September was the other half of Christopher Miller's administration. The month of September is where the constitution was heavily amended to give the Polonia local population more power this was also one of Christopher Miller's campaign promise. The Sejm was fairly inactive in the month of September only passing one law named the Law Organization Act which created a system that would clarify and further layout the procedure a law had to take through the Sejm and the Szlachta.
 +
 
 +
Christopher Miller announced he would not be running for re-election so Xavier Jackson decided to announce his campaign and got support of the Coalition. Robert Smith the Labour Party Chairman also announced he would be running for Premier. Isaiah Burdette the Chairman of the Conservative League saw that no right wingers had announced candidacy and he decided he would run for Premier, Based Baddie also eventually announced candidacy. A premier debate was held before the elections where Xavier Jackson and Robert Smith both participated.
 +
 
 +
Xavier Jackson ended up winning the elections on a landslide.

{{See|Szlachta of Matachewan}}
  
=== Provinces ===
+
Polonia has had many legislative bodies throughout its history, however, the most notable are the [[Sejm of Matachewan|Sejm of Polonia]] and [[Szlachta of Matachewan|Szlachta of Polonia]]. The Sejm of Polonia was was created in its modern form in August 2019. May controversies came out of the Sejm, most notably the cancelation of a war declaration and the removal of Etukara citizens and diplomats within Poloniaian territories or online communications centers.
  
=== Cities ===
+
The Szlachta was a short lived attempted at creating a bicameral Poloniaian legislature. In short the Szlachta didn't achieve anything of note during its time as a legislature and was soon cut out of the picture in October 2020.
  
=== Landscape ===
+
===Ministry of Justice===
 +
Polonia's judicial system is managed by the Ministry of Justice. The system is structured like this:
 +
'''Grand Court''' The Poloniaian Judicial System all starts with the Grand Court.
  
=== Map of Matachewan ===
+
*'''Minister of Justice''' is the person responsible for and supervising Polonia's judiciary system.
 +
*'''Chief Justice''' is the person who oversees and managed the Grand Court, maintains records, declines court case and appoints a jury.
 +
*'''Justices''' are the people who pick a '''Chief Justice''' and are responsible for presiding over court cases and are responsible for review and if necessary nullify Sejm Bills and other forms of Laws.
  
=== Historical Maps of Matachewan ===

===Ministry of Defense===
 +
{{see also|Matachewanian Armed Forces}}
  
=== Climate ===
+
The Government of Polonia sees defense as a main priority and treats military affairs very seriously especially in times of high alert. The Poloniaian Army is currently lead by a group of local generals called the Council of Generals. This council is responsible for implementing any changes in Polonia's army and approving these proposed changes. The Generals are also responsible for creation of new tactics and plans concerning Polonia in times of war, be it micronational or macronational. Polonia's currently functional branches of the Armed Forces are the Poloniaian Army, Poloniaian Navy and M.C.B. (Polonia Cipher Bureau)
  
=== Commonwealth States ===
+
===Poloniaian Education System===
 +
The Poloniaian Education System does not specialize or offer K-12 education but rather we educate people about Polonia. The education system teaches multiple things about Polonia from its history and geography to teaching people how to build Poloniaian designed goods. The ministry of education is currently in the process of creating educational books and maps for students. Polonia's education also branches out to military education and offers a Officer Training Program.
 +
The current system is still being worked on, refined and improved upon.

===Landscape and Animal Populations===
Matachewan is currently undergoing localization and a key part of localization is the development of the economy through industrial means.
 
  
==== Mining Attempts and Plans ====
+
The landscape of Polonia is divided into two parts, Northern Polonia (Polonia Ontario, Bell Island) and Central Polonia (St. Catharines, Niagara on the Lake). The land and features of both districts are very different.
  
On 30 November 2019 Beau Edwards and Brandon Mierzwa went out on a mining expedition in hopes of finding quarts and other surface rocks. What they came back with was a small amount of quarts and small fossils.  
+
'''Northern Polonia:''' Northern Polonia is located close to Ontario's far North in the small Gold Mining Town of [[w:Matachewan|Polonia Ontario]]. Northern Polonia's land is filled with dense forests consisting of [[w:Betula papyrifera|White birch]] trees and [[w:Pinus strobus|Eastern white pine]] trees, the terrain of Northern Polonia is very jagged and elevated, sitting on the [[w:Canadian Shield|Canadian Shield]], the land of Northern Polonia is very resource rich with the Montreal River and Mistinikon Lakes running through Polonia and Bell Island. To the North sits the Upper and Lower Polonia Lakes that feed into the Montreal River. There is also a large animal population as one would expect due to the location. The largest animal groups in Northern Polonia are the [[w:American black bear|Black bear]], [[w:Spruce grouse|Spruce grouse]], [[w:Canada lynx|Canadian lynx]] and [[w:Eastern moose|Eastern moose]]. There is also a significant Fish population in Northern Polonia the most predominant species in Northern Polonia being the [[w:Northern pike|Northern pike]], [[w:Smallmouth bass|Smallmouth bass]] and [[w:Walleye|Walleye]].
 +
[[File:Black_Bear_Eating_Matachewan.jpg|200px|thumb|left|Black Bear eating in natural habitat]]
 +
'''Central Polonia:''' Central Polonia is located in [[w:St. Catharines|St. Catharines Ontario]] and [[w:Niagara-on-the-Lake|Niagara on the Lake Ontario]]. Cenral Polonia's land is mostly urban with many parks and nature reserves especially near the [[w:Niagara Escarpment|Niagara Escarpment]]. Central Polonia's land is very flat and the soil is very fertile due to the location. Central Polonia has direct access to [[w:Lake Ontario|Lake Ontario]] and the [[w:Welland canal|Welland Canal]]. Central Polonia also has territory on the [[w:Niagara River|Niagara River]]. Central Polonia's largest animal populations are [[w:White-tailed deer|White-tailed deer]], [[w:Northern cardinal|Northern cardinal]] and [[w:Black-capped chickadee|Black-capped chickadee]]. Central Polonia's largest fish populations are [[w:Walleye|Walleye]], [[w:Chinook salmon|Chinook salmon]], [[w:Coho salmon|Coho salmon]] and [[w:Yellow perch|Yellow perch]].

[[File:Successful_fishing_trip_Matachewan.png|100px|thumb|right|Northern pike fishing in Polonia]]
  
On the 2nd of December 2019 Brandon and a few other ministers decided they would go mining for clay to create pottery to sell off and make bricks. The work done was impressive as they dug almost 8 feet into the ground striking what they thought was clay. After 1 week of digging and further examination of the "clay" it was found out that the "clay" they've been mining was just hardened dirt. After the news the operation soon was abandoned.
+
===Map of Polonia===
  
==== Farming Plans ====
+
The Map of Polonia has changed many times throughout its 5 year history but has seen minimal boarder change in the last 4 months. The current map consists of Poloniaian core and non-core territory. Polonia's map centers around areas of importance to Polonia like Poloniaian owned workshops, training grounds and Poloniaian construction land. <ref name="Matachewan Territory Map"> [https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1e1ZgpdpdZJzzrwzNAkj7R-PwWs0Rfl1c&usp=sharing Matachewan Territory Map] </ref>
  
Matachewan is preparing to make small planters which will be used to grow small plants like Dill and Parsley. Matachewan also has plans to make an all year farm using potatoes. The attempts at farming are small but a nation must start somewhere.
+
===Climate===
 +
[[File:Font_Street_Northern_Matachewan_During_the_Winter.png|150px|thumb|left|Northern Polonia Entrance Road March 2020]]
 +
The climate of Polonia varies between two main territories. The climate of Central Polonia (Oblate City, Fort Carlton, Louisville, Thorald City) would be described as Humid Continental Climate. The climate of Northern Polonia (Fort Polonia/Bell Island) can be described as Humid Continental Climate however due to the long winters and lack of humidity it could also pass of as a Subarctic Climate and because of its super long winters and massive temperature drops it'll be labeled as Subarctic.

Poloniaian Media is mostly consisted of the government owned YouTube Channel [https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2V3jfWiDgS9WeXSxEn9qWg?view_as=subscriber| PoloniaGov.]. The channel primarily features Poloniaian Music and 1 map video. Polonia has two new papers 1 being the inactive Polonia Weekly and the other being [[Labour Party of Matachewan|Labour party]] Owned, Peoples Voice. Another media channel in Polonia is the privately  owned [https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuXowymIAFdqlNcLB2Z3Ogg| Lokin Productions], this media channel being owned by Nicholas Lokin.

====Music====
 +
Poloniaians listen to a variety of music but primarily listen to Germanic, Slavic or Scandinavian Patriotic Marches or Folk Music. Polonia has made 1 piece of music named the Poloniaian Waltz No. 1 composed by HM Brandon I. Polonia occasionally has something called "Jazz Night" where the King is often playing Polish Folk, Polkas and Waltzes on the Alto Sax. Formerly there was also "Song Night" where Brandon would sing requested songs but this has been long retired.

The large Polish population is the reason why Polonia borrows many symbols and names from [[w:Poland|Poland]]. Poloniaians who have embraced Polonization have went under a new identity different from Polish. This new identity is recognized in Polonia as ''"Poloniaian"'', a culture made from the Anglification of Poles in Local Polonia. The Poloniaians, similar to the Polish-Siberians, identify as Polish exiles as many of the Poles that make up the new Poloniaian culture as descendants from political and religious exiles from Poland during the Soviet control of the country.

The Commonwealth of Polonia, more commonly known as simply Polonia is a self-declared sovereign-state. Located primarily in Ontario, Canada, it is geographically composed of several houses and open green spaces. It has both a local and online presence but maintains a primarily local presence.


Etymology


History

Founding

Recreation of the Lost Poloniaian Declaration of Independence

The Grand Kingdom of Polonia (Polonia non-formal) was created on the 30 June 2015[1] in Polonia Ontario. The first era or Early Polonia as it came to be known as was a small and basic nation state with hopes to eventually become a large micronation. The time between 2015 and now was filled with hardship, struggle, joy and enthusiasm. Polonia as it started out had 7 citizens, all of which were local. This first Polonia was very Russian-Polish based with many state symbols resembling those of Tsarist styled emblems and heraldry. This early Polonia was ruled by a Council consisting of 5 citizens. This council could often be referred to as the First Sejm of Polonia however this is not the case it would be more appropriate and fitting to refer to it as the First Parliament or First Council of Polonia. Sadly this era was not to last. The reasoning for its demise was the lack of knowledge in politics and ruling along with the lack of funding or attention. Polonia was not seen again till mid 2018.

2018 - 2019

First Flag of Polonia

On August 3 2018 Polonia began public operations. On 27 August 2018 one of Polonia's first global citizen joined, the citizen was Owen Leski. Mr. Leski was a pure libertarian looking to bring more freedom and less government control over Polonia. Mr. Leski along with Mr. Kamiron Chaisson and Mr. Krill Lyzhin started the first "modern" Poloniaian Government. This government was very ineffective leading to massive inactivity in the server and without any local assets the early Poloniaian state looked as if it was going to die out. It wasn't till October when Polonia decided to pull a very odd move and declare war on Nerdystan a Republic protected by the Kingdom of Auvenum. This "war" was to be known as the Robertson Sea Conflict where Polonia, Kingdom of Auvenum and the Fifth Aenderian Republic engaged in a war or words over discord. Eventually the "conflict" came to a close and Polonia started rebuilding relations with Auvenum and Nerdystan. In December of 2018 Polonia became inactive yet again and again almost died out before it met the nation of Groponigën.

Kingdom of Groponigën and Polonia

In January 2019 after seeing the success of Groponigën, Polonia entered a union with Groponigën in hopes Groponigën citizens would flood to Polonia and Polonia could grow into a large active micronation. Sadly after Polonia wasn't given any aid from Groponigën and Groponigën tried lowering the autonomy of Polonia, Brandon Mierzwa the King in Exile decided to work with Peter Warren a politician from Groponigën and the leader of the Groponigën Conservatives. After Peter and Brandon's plan to create a new Polonia was leaked to Groponigën officials Brandon and Peter were put on trial and found guilty of treason. Brandon sick of the lack of representation declared independence from Groponigën stating that Polonia was a free Kingdom and Groponigën would be powerless to stop Polonia. Eventually the whole thing was dropped and Polonia was released by Groponigën. After these events Polonia's and Groponigën's relationship never healed even after attempts to fix the very broken trust between the two nations.

March - May 2019

Poloniaian Declaration of Imperial Rule

Polonia was known between March and May as the 5th Kingdom of Polonia. After Polonia regained independence Polonia became more popular attracting many micronationalists and people from other communities alike. Eventually Polonia crossed the 50 global citizen mark and became a larger micronation that had a strong government with a supportive and working globalized population. During this time the Poloniaian Parliament became known as the Sejm of Polonia and the people were more politically driven than ever before. Sadly this was not to last because Polonia eventually elected Ágá Sárrajuoksa a politician from Polonia's former oppressor. Mr. Sárrajuoksa promised sweeping change to Polonia in order to reform it into a democratic state. After a 2 week term 13 April rolled around and then began the Poloniaian Radio Scandal of 13 April a scandal where the politically divided citizens and parties openly started attacking each other and destroying much of the hard work set up by the globalized Kingdom. During this time the Libertarian Party led by Ágá Sárrajuoksa threatened to remove the King Brandon Mierzwa's powers and make Polonia a true Republic. This was successful at first leading to massive political fighting, the Fifth Aenderian Republic cut recognition of Polonia along with many other micronations and Polonia became a heaping mess. On 27 April the Sejm was officially suspended and Imperial Restoration was ordered to return the monarchy's grip on the nation. On this same day Grand Prince Jakub, Brandon Mierzwa's cousin and the current successor of the Poloniaian throne was born. After Imperial restoration was declared Polonia rebuilt itself finally removing all rebellious citizens and all diplomats who turned their back on Polonia. In May of 2019 the Kingdom of Polonia reached out to the Kingdom of New Prussia led by Kleinmann Kummel. On 14 May Polonia and New Prussia along with the Principality of Kaiserhof and the Kingdom of Edgemont went into negotiations concerning a proposed Poloniaian-Prussian Commonwealth. On 17 May 2019 this Commonwealth became a reality.

First Mention of Polonia-Prussia

Poloniaian-Prussian Commonwealth

Kleinmann Kummel favouring Personal Union

The Poloniaian-Prussian Commonwealth became official on the 23 May 2019 with the signing of the New Krakow-Küstenstadt Act. This treaty made Polonia and Prussia a single unified nation with a Dual Monarchy and single unified legislature. This was to be known as the Early Commonwealth Era where Polonia and Prussia were still trying to figure out what it wanted to be and what it was to become. Polonia-Prussia grew very rapidly during the month of May growing over 100 global citizens and passing most other micronations. The first conflict to involve Polonia-Prussia was around 1 June when Polonia-Prussia had conflicts with the Kingdom of Sewanda. After the victory of this conflict where Polonia-Prussian raiders took a decisive win in a raid against Sewanda the Commonwealth realized they were better off together. The first hiccup occurred on 15 June 2019 when Kleinmann Kummel abdicated in favour of personal union with Polonia. Thus the Poloniaian-Prussian Commonwealth was made into a single unified country with one crown and one government. Sadly this wouldn't last long either as Brandon Mierzwa already having played a massive role in the Commonwealth abdicated for no good reason. Eventually after some bitter debate Kleinmann was installed as King and took control over the Commonwealth. With Kleinmann at the helm the Commonwealth prospered, it grew past the 150 global citizens mark and started opening relations with the Grand Republic of Cycoldia. During this time Brandon Mierzwa returned to Poloniaian politics and ran for Prime Minister of the Commonwealth. As expected this also was not to last because on the 22 July 2019 Kleinmann announced the end of the Commonwealth officially ending Polonia and Prussia. In the confusion Brandon Mierzwa jumped on the opportunity and declared the Grand Kingdom of Polonia to be the only legitimate successor of Polonia-Prussia and on 23 July 2019 Brandon Mierzwa became King of Polonia again.

Kleinmann Officially Ending the Polonia-Prussian Commonwealth

Grand Kingdom of Polonia

The Grand Kingdom of Polonia was formed immediately after the Poloniaian-Prussian Commonwealth. The Grand Kingdom has overcome many challenges and has become the most successful and stable Polonia after Polonia's 5 year history.

August - November 2019

During the early months of the Grand Kingdom of Polonia, Polonia was rebuilding itself to become finally what it always wanted to be, a great micronational power or at least great micronation. To do this Brandon Mierzwa, Peter Warren and a few others realized they needed to get serious and after 1 month of Peter's administration the first free Poloniaian Election was held on 1 September 2019 with a Monarchist victory allowing Peter to secure the office of Prime Minister for another term. After minimal progress in September something had to be done. Christopher Miller the leader of the Progress Party decided to run again in the October elections and beat Peter Warren. After this Mr. Miller began implementing reform after reform to create a perfect or somewhat perfect Polonia. On 2 October 2019 Miller created the Progressive Conservative Party of Polonia officially starting the first Progressive Conservative Administration. The Progressive Conservatives wished to localize Polonia something never done or tried by other parties. At first localization was slow but ultimately successful. After Mr. Miller's term concluded in October the November elections started and the Progressive Conservatives won another landslide victory. During this time more locals flocked to Polonia and Polonia started to draw the attention of larger micronations.

Grand Poloniaian Commonwealth

The Grand Poloniaian Commonwealth was formed in November 2019 by Polonia, Humberlea, Duchy of Antranador, United Sonoran Emirates of Okka, Principality of Jokyr and Principality of Trumar. The Commonwealth's sole intention was to create a large united confederation of states under Polonia. Another reason was to try and restore the glory of the old Poloniaian-Prussian Commonwealth. During this time Polonia continued to develop itself while attempting to support nations like Humberlea and Antranador. During the life of the Commonwealth a certain man by the name of Zech O'Hair was removed from the Sejm on the supposed reasoning of attempting to abolish the monarchy, a very punishable offence in the Kingdom at the time. In a fit of rage Christopher Miller revoked all recognition of the Empire of Etukan and to this day the Grand Kingdom refuses to accept Etukan's existence. It was also during this time when Humberlea was raided by Zech and a few or his loyalists after losing an election in Humberlea to Polonia supported Yuriy Aleksander.

A New Year a New Polonia

On 1 January 2020, Brandon Mierzwa announced a new Poloniaian year now entering the 5 year anniversary of independence for 30 June 2020. Polonia was to enter a new era, the 20s, Polonia was ready and prepared to jump into 2020 as soon as it could and promised to the global governments that a meeting of locals will be held. This promise was upheld because soon after Christmas break Polonia's Government met up to officially create the First Local Sejm.

First Local Sejm of Polonia

The First Local Sejm Meeting (Left: Simon Fraser, Jessica Mierzwa. Center: Brandon Mierzwa. Right: Beau Edwards, Rowan Long)

On 9 January 2020, HM Brandon I, summoned Poloniaian local politicians and intellectuals to make up the first Local Sejm. Just before the meeting that afternoon, Beau Edwards, Simon Fraser and Brandon Mierzwa all agreed to meet up at the capital building to appoint Polonia's Council of Generals. On that night of training more Poloniaians living in Oblate City joined them, most notably Liam Carey and Rowan Long, Liam Carey having more importance as he and Brandon originally came up with the idea of Polonia. At 6:00pm the appointments were concluded and Brandon summoned, Simon Fraser, Beau Edwards, Jessica Mierzwa and Rowan Long to serve as the first members of the Local Sejm. After a lengthy discussion on Poloniaian affairs the Sejm unanimously elected Beau Edwards as the first Local Prime Minister of Polonia. After the successful meeting Polonia has not called another meeting since. The government hopes that in the coming months that another Sejm meeting will be called.

End of the Commonwealth

In February of 2020 Brandon Mierzwa announced the dissolution of the Poloniaian Commonwealth, with Commonwealth member states - for example, the Antranador Federation and Okka - being granted full independence. The Commonwealth's reason for dissolving was due to the fact that the Commonwealth ran its course and could no longer support its member states.

March - April

In March of 2020 the Grand Kingdom of Polonia made a decision that would eventually lead to political unrest, this unrest and fighting eventually led up to the Battle of Williamsburg and more radicalized politics, it felt like 2019 all over again however this time Polonia put its foot down and fought the problems before they could lead to anything serious.

In March, political champion, Christopher Miller came out of the February election victorious, this came as no surprise as he won all the elections before that excluding the December election and August election. After some talks about creating a Poloniaian colonial system, King Brandon and Christopher introduced the Poloniaian Colonial Office so that globalized citizens outside of Poloniaian borders could register their property or local territory as a colony. This idea was met with mixed reactions however it was accepted as a good attempt to allow globals to enjoy the many things that localized Poloniaian citizens could enjoy.

Premier Miller's response to the "Declaration"

One day a man only by the name of Fredrick arrived in Polonia, at the time regarded as a fine lad who was interested in Poloniaian colonialism. After he became a citizen he created the colony of New Augustine, named after the Poloniaian local city of St. Augustine. New Augustine, from the reports given by Fredrick, was a growing successful colony however things started to go south when promises to bring Fredrick into the Sejm were declined. It isn't known what happened in the span of a few days and it is not generally accepted by either side to draw assumed conclusions. Near late March, Polonia and Etukan finally started to show resentment towards each other for political and personal affiliations, it is believed by Polonia that the signed Polonia-Etukan Agreement was broken by Etukan first by undermining and breaching Polonia's agreed neutrality. However by Etukan it is believed Polonia broke the treaty by denouncing Etukan as a whole and labeling it as a failed state. Whatever the matter was or which side you hear it from Polonia and Etukan can both agree the treaty was broken. In response the tensions and breakdowns of negotiations, Etukan's ally, the Yedinist Republic of New Prussia decided to take negotiations into their own hands and when the talks broke down they declared "war" on Polonia. To this day Polonia and New Prussia are still at war however Polonia refused to recognize the legitimacy of the document and government of New Prussia due to the former Humberlean disputes over the crown of New Prussia as well as refusing the war as New Prussia has no borders with Polonia. It is not known what happened but this war has never ended and has never been fought and to this day Polonia still refuses to accept that a state of war exists since the declaration is outlandish and illegitimate.

link=File:New_Prussia's_War_%22Declaration%22.jpg

Now the scene was set and Polonia had itself a choice, return to Etukan under the treaty or continue its attempt at full diplomatic isolation and neutrality. As expected Polonia chose option two and decided to refuse talks with Etukara officials. So the facts as they were, Etukan and Polonia were angry, New Prussia declared an unrecognized war and New Augustine was upset due to their own agenda, something was to start a conflict but what? Well it just so happened New Augustine was located next to the Etukara Delaware Colony. So Etukan seizing the opportunity, they organized a pitched battle with Polonia in New Augustine in the territory of Williamsburg. Polonia, not having enough military in the area called on the colony to assemble a militia force and King Brandon I personally promoted Fredrick to General Broni to take command of the militia. Polonia's militia was out matched numerically and logistically. The militia could only arm themselves with sticks and nurf guns while the Etukara unit had bamboo pikes and bangers. The two forces met at Williamsburg and engaged, the outnumbered Poloniaians attempted to flank Etukan's forces and steal equipment however the flank was countered and Polonia suffered two casualties (Both physical blows to the legs and torsos). Eventually after some more fighting the militia broke ranks and made a disorganized retreat. The battle was a humiliation to Polonia but to Brandon and Christopher they still celebrated because although our soldiers came home wounded and beat they still fought and they should still be honored. Brandon encouraged Fredrick to open a second front and fight another battle however Fredward had enough and with support of Etukan surrendered the colony to Etukara forces and declared the Principality of New Augustine an independent nation. After some time New Augustine created the Fourth Republic of Polonia, a breakaway state with hardly any recognition. It is not generally recognized as Polonia. In response to this Polonia sent spies to coup their government, which failed however to this day most of the government and online assets of the illegitimate Republic are made up of Brandon's loyalists and work as spies to inform him of everyday activity which is at an all time low.

After the major hit Christopher Miller resigned as Premier and on 5 April 2020 Christina Nowell was elected Premier of Polonia.

April - July

During the months of April to July the Poloniaian political scene was very active with many political debates, fights, and agreements happening almost everyday.

After the embarrassing defeat at Williamsburg, Christopher Miller resigned, and Christina Nowell was voted into office with her local partner Simon Fraser. After the election Christina was met with opposition from Robert Smith, at the time a Pro-Con politician, who questioned the legitimacy of Christina's power and the December Constitution. Robert Smith gave many valid points that the December Constitution was never formally declared void. This led Brandon Mierzwa to officially make a royal decree declaring the Constitution of December 2019 void. This action was not positively perceived by the population. After the constitution was no longer in effect the Sejm had become a disorganized institution which eventually led to its suspension.

Eventually Christina Nowell had enough and Robert was tried with "Sejm tampering" and eventually treason. Once the news had broken out the Poloniaian government passed the Treason Act which defined treason for the time being. Robert Smith having already stated that the charges put on him were unjustified the Christina Administration refused to let him speak on his own behalf. After irrelevant evidence was produced against Robert the trial had finally begun after 1 month of delay. The trial was headed by Brandon Mierzwa who served as judge while Christina Nowell represented the crown and Robert Smith the defense. The trial lasted almost one week and once it was concluded Brandon Mierzwa had influenced the Jury that Robert was innocent, which indeed he was. Later it was leaked that Brandon had tampered with the trial Christina stated that she would "Bend Poloniaian Law". Once this too had been leaked to the Poloniaian Weekly, Brandon finally put his foot down and demanded Christina resign. With no formal resignation Brandon called upon the local Poloniaian Armed Forces to suspend the Sejm and take direct control of Polonia. On 15 May 2020 the Poloniaian Armed Forces had complete control of the country and Nicholas Lokin served as "Premier" until 1 June.

August - September 2020

On 1 August 2020 Christopher Miller was elected Premier with help of the Coalition which at the time contained the Conservative League of Polonia, United Northern Liberals, Solidarity Party of Polonia, and the Patriotic Front Successfully defeating Robert Smith. A record of 30 people voted in the Premier election along with 20 citizens voting in the Sejm elections. The Coalition also came into power with a 8/12 super majority in Sejm[2]. Andreas Hudson was declared speaker of Sejm unopposed. A few bills were passed in the Sejm, Sejm Bill #020 which ratified the documents needed to apply into the Cupertino Alliance, Amendment 002 that would clarify in the constitution that at the start of a new Sejm the previously elected speaker would be the one to hold elections for their replacement[3], The Justice Reform Act that would change the way Justices were appointed to the court by cutting the premier out of the process and instead have the King pick a candidate that then must pass a bar exam created by a independent committee and then a referendum must be held where 50% of the population must approve of the Judge. It would also categorize offences into 3 groups[4]:

The month of September was the other half of Christopher Miller's administration. The month of September is where the constitution was heavily amended to give the Polonia local population more power this was also one of Christopher Miller's campaign promise. The Sejm was fairly inactive in the month of September only passing one law named the Law Organization Act which created a system that would clarify and further layout the procedure a law had to take through the Sejm and the Szlachta.

Christopher Miller announced he would not be running for re-election so Xavier Jackson decided to announce his campaign and got support of the Coalition. Robert Smith the Labour Party Chairman also announced he would be running for Premier. Isaiah Burdette the Chairman of the Conservative League saw that no right wingers had announced candidacy and he decided he would run for Premier, Based Baddie also eventually announced candidacy. A premier debate was held before the elections where Xavier Jackson and Robert Smith both participated.

Xavier Jackson ended up winning the elections on a landslide.

September Constitution

The June Constitution was heavily amended on 4 September 2020 these amendments made for a new legislative branch of only locals that was given substantially more power then Sejm, a more in depth legislative system, and restored the office of Prime Minister which a local could only hold it also gave the position of Prime Minister substantially more power then the office of Premier something both local and global citizens could hold.[5]

Historical Legislatures of Polonia

Official Sejm and Logo of the Grand Sejm of Matachewan

Polonia has had many legislative bodies throughout its history, however, the most notable are the Sejm of Polonia and Szlachta of Polonia. The Sejm of Polonia was was created in its modern form in August 2019. May controversies came out of the Sejm, most notably the cancelation of a war declaration and the removal of Etukara citizens and diplomats within Poloniaian territories or online communications centers.

The Szlachta was a short lived attempted at creating a bicameral Poloniaian legislature. In short the Szlachta didn't achieve anything of note during its time as a legislature and was soon cut out of the picture in October 2020.

Ministry of Justice

Polonia's judicial system is managed by the Ministry of Justice. The system is structured like this: Grand Court The Poloniaian Judicial System all starts with the Grand Court.

  • Minister of Justice is the person responsible for and supervising Polonia's judiciary system.
  • Chief Justice is the person who oversees and managed the Grand Court, maintains records, declines court case and appoints a jury.
  • Justices are the people who pick a Chief Justice and are responsible for presiding over court cases and are responsible for review and if necessary nullify Sejm Bills and other forms of Laws.

Ministry of Defense

The Government of Polonia sees defense as a main priority and treats military affairs very seriously especially in times of high alert. The Poloniaian Army is currently lead by a group of local generals called the Council of Generals. This council is responsible for implementing any changes in Polonia's army and approving these proposed changes. The Generals are also responsible for creation of new tactics and plans concerning Polonia in times of war, be it micronational or macronational. Polonia's currently functional branches of the Armed Forces are the Poloniaian Army, Poloniaian Navy and M.C.B. (Polonia Cipher Bureau)

Poloniaian Education System

The Poloniaian Education System does not specialize or offer K-12 education but rather we educate people about Polonia. The education system teaches multiple things about Polonia from its history and geography to teaching people how to build Poloniaian designed goods. The ministry of education is currently in the process of creating educational books and maps for students. Polonia's education also branches out to military education and offers a Officer Training Program. The current system is still being worked on, refined and improved upon.

Constitution of Polonia

Poloniaian Constitution Preamble

The Constitution of Polonia was created on 3 June 2020 by the Smith Administration to bring common rights and privileges to each Poloniaian citizen and defined the government's rules and set boundaries to avoid abuse of power and neglect from the nation's leaders.

The Constitution was heavily amended on 4 September 2020 by the Miller Administration to restore the office of Prime Minister, as well as restoring the Szlachta of Polonia. The new constitution also expands upon the judicial system of Polonia giving the common citizen more rights in court and it also defines civil and criminal law examples in Polonia.

Religion

Religious Groups in Polonia

Polonia, unlike most modern nations, does hold a state religion and is not an official secular state. However it should be noted that Polonia does guarantee religious freedom to all it's citizens as stated in the Constitution of Polonia.

The largest religious group in Polonia is Catholic which is the country's state religion alongside Judaism. The reasoning for Judaism being recognized as an official religion is because of Polonia's small but active Jewish minority.

Other religions and groups include:

Cultural Groups

Cultural Groups of Local and Global Polonia

The Grand Kingdom of Polonia is a multiethnic nation with many cultures making up Polonia. However it should be noted that much of local Polonia (Central and Northern Polonia) have major populations of Polish-Canadians, First Generation Poles and Jews. The large Polish population is the reason why Polonia borrows many symbols and names from Poland. Poloniaians who have embraced Polonization have went under a new identity different from Polish. This new identity is recognized in Polonia as "Poloniaian", a culture made from the Anglification of Poles in Local Polonia. The Poloniaians, similar to the Polish-Siberians, identify as Polish exiles as many of the Poles that make up the new Poloniaian culture as descendants from political and religious exiles from Poland during the Soviet control of the country.
