Monmark is a Confederal Constitutional Monarchy de jure, but a Confederal Absolute Monarchy de facto, consisting of 10 Constituent Countries with each having their own regional monarchy.

 +
 
 +
With 54 citizens as of 9 January 2021, Monmark has grown rapidly since September 2020 when there had been a total of 12 citizens, this reflects Monmark's diplomatic outreach since then. Of the current 54 citizens, 11 are confirmed residents of Monmark, other citizens are honorary citizens or full citizens who live outside Monmarkian borders.
 +
 
 +

From then on until the November of 2019 Monmark was in a state of dormancy, in November the King began a series of reforms declaring himself Emperor, and soon Grand Emperor, in that time the title of Prime Minister was changed to Grand Chancellor. Over the succeeding months, Monmark was reformed more and more. On the 29th of May 2020, the constitution was ratified by the Grand Emperor. On May 31 2020, Monmark entered into diplomatic relations for the first time joining the League of Independent Nations and establishing an embassy within the Nexan Republic.

On 20 June 2020, Monmark annexed its nearby puppet states set up by the monarch for that purpose, becoming the first constituent countries alongside the Kingdom of Monmark which succeeded Bluff Province.
  
 
===Monmarkian Golden Age===
 
===Monmarkian Golden Age===
  
During what the Government has called the "Almendria Conflict" Monmark never fought in the war, but did side diplomatically against Almendria, condemning the Alendrian Government after their cancelled elections and blocking of Ozikstani independence, earning an embassy within Ozikstan. On 14 August 2020, a new Constituent Country was added to the Empire by a vote of Parliament named the Kingdom of Paland, with the citizen who obtained the land being crowned as its first King. The next day the Grand Emperor changed his title to Emperor in an attempt to be more modest. On 30 September 2020, the Convention of the Americas was signed with the [[Arthurian Empire]], the Nexan Republic and the [[Confederal Republic of Sunseva]]. In this treaty, HI&RM David Augustus I, was recognized as "King of the Texans". On 5 October 2020, the Green Free State which was a micronation to the northeast of Monmark ruled by David Augustus, petitioned for annexation into Monmark, which was accepted, the Green Free State was then divided into the Kingdom of the Highlands, Grand Duchy of Neu-Begonie, and the Grand Duchy of the Lowlands. On 25 October 2020, the Emperor declared a golden age for Monmark following exponential growth since late September.

On 30 November 2020, recognizing a common mistake of foreigners thinking Monmark was a kingdom, the nation was renamed to the Monmarkian Empire.

==Flags==
  
The Royal Standard and Imperial Standard are used interchangeably, although it is common courtesy to use the Imperial Standard as the official flag of Monmark, and to fly in most situations while the Royal Standard is used mostly in situations involving the Royal Family. Constituent Countries may have their own flags and royal standards but they fly below the Imperial Standard.

==Government==
The governance of Monmark is conducted via a semiconstitutional monarchy with the Emperor as head of state, while the Grand Chancellor is head of government. The legislature of Monmark is the Imperial Parliament, a tricameral entity composed of the Grand Imperial Council as the upper chamber, and the Imperial Senate, and House of Nobles as the lower chambers. The Grand Imperial Council is made up of Councillors(previously Chancellors) appointed by the Emperor from among the nobility, with the Grand Chancellor being a part of this council as its head while also being appointed by the Emperor, Councillors have two-year terms with a limit of nine. The Imperial Senate is made up of elected Senators serving one-year terms with a limit of ten, Senators are elected via Party List Instant Run-off voting, with the number of Senators decided by the number of Constituent Countries. The House of Nobles has the same power and number of Representatives as the Senate but is unelected and rather appointed by the Federal Monarchs of each Constituent Country, with one Representative per Constituent Country. Parliament was suspended on 1 November and was announced to not be reinstated until the populace demands it, this solodified a change to absolute monarchy.

Following Parliament's suspension, the functions of the legislature have been taken over by the Privy Council with the purpose of advising the monarch.

Constituent Countries have the right to their own laws and constitution as well as their own foreign policy, these are entirely up to the Federal Monarch of that territory. Constituent Countries are further divided into Crownlands and Municipalities. Dominions serve no purpose other than assigning uninhabited land to divisions. Associated states are states established by Monmarkian citizens or the monarch, as independent monarchies, however subject to the imperial crown of Monmark, with defense and foreign policy falling to the imperial government.

Monmark, officially the Monmarkian Empire, is a sovereign state as part of the Monmarkian-Arthurian Empire, not recognized by any UN members commonly called a "micronation" by outside observers, enclaved within the State of Texas within the United States. Established as the Kingdom of Monmark on the 26 December 2017. Monmark is a Confederal Constitutional Monarchy de jure, but a Confederal Absolute Monarchy de facto, consisting of 11 Constituent Countries with each having their own regional monarchy. Monmark is the Hegemon of the Monmarkian Commonwealth, an organization of states under Monmarkian protection/alliance, as well as its constituent countries, crownlands, dominions, and associated states.

Monmark's government system follows the ideals of "Crimsonism" which is the ideology made by David Augustus I, Crimsonism is characterized by absolute monarchism, social democratic economic policies, environmentalism, and moderately progressive social policies.

With 54 citizens as of 9 January 2021, Monmark has grown rapidly since September 2020 when there had been a total of 12 citizens, this reflects Monmark's diplomatic outreach since then. Of the current 54 citizens, 11 are confirmed residents of Monmark, other citizens are honorary citizens or full citizens who live outside Monmarkian borders.

Monmark is a member state of the Cupertino Alliance since 7 November 2020 when it was admitted as an Observer State, and it became a full member on 25 November 2020. Besides Cupertino, Monmark also was a part of the League of Independent Nations from 31 May until 1 November 2020, when Monmark left the alliance.

Etymology and demonyms

“Monmark” has no real meaning and etymology, however the demonyms are as follows. Monmarkian is used as the adjectival form of Monmark, as well as to describe a citizen of Monmark. Monmarkians is the plural form, used to describe groups of Monmarkian citizens.

History

Early History

Monmark was established on 26 December 2017 as the Kingdom of Monmark with the two founders debating who should be the first King, David Augustus won out. The first months of existence were spent making a few laws here and there but no attempt at a constitution was ever made. In September of 2018, a brief civil war was fought between the King and Prime Minister after the Prime Minister declared war on the nation of Rockfoxia, after a few days fighting, both sides reunited.

Early Empire

From then on until the November of 2019 Monmark was in a state of dormancy, in November the King began a series of reforms declaring himself Emperor, and soon Grand Emperor, in that time the title of Prime Minister was changed to Grand Chancellor. Over the succeeding months, Monmark was reformed more and more. On the 29th of May 2020, the constitution was ratified by the Grand Emperor. On May 31 2020, Monmark entered into diplomatic relations for the first time joining the League of Independent Nations and establishing an embassy within the Nexan Republic. On 20 June 2020, Monmark annexed its nearby puppet states set up by the monarch for that purpose, becoming the first constituent countries alongside the Kingdom of Monmark which succeeded Bluff Province.

Monmarkian Golden Age

During what the Government has called the "Almendria Conflict" Monmark never fought in the war, but did side diplomatically against Almendria, condemning the Alendrian Government after their cancelled elections and blocking of Ozikstani independence, earning an embassy within Ozikstan. On 14 August 2020, a new Constituent Country was added to the Empire by a vote of Parliament named the Kingdom of Paland, with the citizen who obtained the land being crowned as its first King. The next day the Grand Emperor changed his title to Emperor in an attempt to be more modest. On 30 September 2020, the Convention of the Americas was signed with the Arthurian Empire, the Nexan Republic and the Confederal Republic of Sunseva. In this treaty, HI&RM David Augustus I, was recognized as "King of the Texans". On 5 October 2020, the Green Free State which was a micronation to the northeast of Monmark ruled by David Augustus, petitioned for annexation into Monmark, which was accepted, the Green Free State was then divided into the Kingdom of the Highlands, Grand Duchy of Neu-Begonie, and the Grand Duchy of the Lowlands. On 25 October 2020, the Emperor declared a golden age for Monmark following exponential growth since late September. On 30 November 2020, recognizing a common mistake of foreigners thinking Monmark was a kingdom, the nation was renamed to the Monmarkian Empire.

2021

On 1 January 2021, Monmark united with the Arthurian Empire, creating the Monmarkian-Arthurian Empire, a new dual monarchy, with two co-emperors, a Chancellor, and a Prime Minister for each state.

Flags

The Royal Standard and Imperial Standard are used interchangeably, although it is common courtesy to use the Imperial Standard as the official flag of Monmark, and to fly in most situations while the Royal Standard is used mostly in situations involving the Royal Family. Constituent Countries may have their own flags and royal standards but they fly below the Imperial Standard. The colonial ensign flies over all dominions, as well as associated states with no flag.

Government

The governance of Monmark is conducted via a semiconstitutional monarchy with the Emperor as head of state, while the Grand Chancellor is head of government. The legislature of Monmark is the Imperial Parliament, a tricameral entity composed of the Grand Imperial Council as the upper chamber, and the Imperial Senate, and House of Nobles as the lower chambers. The Grand Imperial Council is made up of Councillors(previously Chancellors) appointed by the Emperor from among the nobility, with the Grand Chancellor being a part of this council as its head while also being appointed by the Emperor, Councillors have two-year terms with a limit of nine. The Imperial Senate is made up of elected Senators serving one-year terms with a limit of ten, Senators are elected via Party List Instant Run-off voting, with the number of Senators decided by the number of Constituent Countries. The House of Nobles has the same power and number of Representatives as the Senate but is unelected and rather appointed by the Federal Monarchs of each Constituent Country, with one Representative per Constituent Country. Parliament was suspended on 1 November and was announced to not be reinstated until the populace demands it, this solidified a change to absolute monarchy. Following Parliament's suspension, the functions of the legislature have been taken over by the Privy Council with the purpose of advising the monarch.

Privy Councillors

Political Parties

There are currently three parties in Parliament. The SRP (social royalist party) is a center left party that controls three seats in the Grand Imperial Council, and the Grand Chancellor. The Zachary Party (whose leader has not revealed their party’s platform) controls a single seat in the Grand Imperial Council. The Prime Party is a far left libertarian party that has one seat in the Grand Imperial Council. There is one independent currently in the council.

Administration

Monmark is a federal empire where the administration is composed of Incorporated Territories and Unincorporated Territories. Constituent Countries have the right to their own laws and constitution as well as their own foreign policy, these are entirely up to the Federal Monarch of that territory. Constituent Countries are further divided into Crownlands and Municipalities. Dominions serve no purpose other than assigning uninhabited land to divisions. Associated states are states established by Monmarkian citizens or the monarch, as independent monarchies, however subject to the imperial crown of Monmark, with defense and foreign policy falling to the imperial government.

Armed forces

The Monmarkian Armed Forces are divided into four branches, the Imperial Defense Corps (IDC), the Imperial Guard (IGD), the Royal Monmarkian Navy (RMN), and the Royal Cyber Defense Corps (RCDC). Monmark is constitutionally neutral from conflicts not involving allies yet retains a strong military to discourage conflict. All adults are required to serve for two years, but this goes unenforced as the nation is not focusing on military development.

IDC

The IDC is structured into Divisions, Battalions, and Platoons, with the Highest Ranks being Supreme Commander held by the Emperor, and Marshal of Monmark held by any distinguished General. The IDC is the main force in the Monmarkian military, with the role of protecting the sovereignty of Monmark.

RCDC

The RCDC is the cyber defense force of Monmark with the roles of protecting Monmark's Cyberspace and waging war virtually in the event of war. The highest rank is Supreme Commander, held by the Emperor.

IGD

The IGD is the elite forces of Monmark, tasked with the protection of the Royal Family, the Grand Chancellor, and the Parliament in peace, and Special Operations in war. The Government has yet to declassify most of the structure of the IGD.

RMN

The RMN is the naval arm of the IDC, charged with protecting any coastline from threats. The highest ranks are Supreme Commander held by the Emperor, and Grand Admiral, held by HM Vincent II of Paland. While no vessels have been acquired for the navy as of yet, the Government plans to have all aquatic vessels in the nation be state owned, but loaned to civilians in peacetime, and requisitioned during war time for defense of the nation.
