Latra vens yime Ojin!
|Established||26 January 2006|
Durkadurkagradstania was founded on 26 January 2006. It was created by its 3 original, and present, government members. Matthew Smith-Neuert was appointed Presenkragen (a Mikolian term, literally "Present Leader"), Mike Cleveland was appointed the Vice Presenkragen, and Jesse Walby was appointed the War General. From this point on, the micronation of 3 members soon grew as each member recruited people from the school they were attending.
Several Durkadurkagradstanian symbols and terms can be connected to the Soviet Union. The 3 original MKP's (Members of Kragen Plaza) had a strong interest in World War II history, and along with that a strong interest in the Soviet Union. At first, the micronation was even considered the last remaining satellite of the Soviet Union, but this ideology was soon dropped. Governmental dress, as well as military dress, were strongly Soviet influenced, and had some World War II German influence (no swastikas, SS, etc, Durkadurkagradstania holds a very strong platform against fascism.)
Although Durkadurkagradstania's independence has not yet been formally declared, among it's people the date is that of Vlashiv, or 26 January 2006.
1 November 2008 Recitizenization
As of 1 November 2008 all Durkadurkagradstanian Citizenships have been suspended, as all Citizens must fill out new, more informative Citizenship Application Forms. This will also help to see how many active members are within Durkadurkagradstania. Government positions will remain.
The date of its disestablishment seems to be uncertain, but it is currently defunct for unknown reasons.
Durkadurkagradstania is a Constitutional Monarchy, with the Presenkragen as the ruling monarch. The Vice Presenkragen is in charge of Kragen Plaza (Kragen Plaza translates to "Leader Plaza", and is the Durkadurkagradstanian version of Parliament). The current government was created by appointment of individuals who felt they could handle the position they wanted and this worked out quite well. The Constitution that Durkadurkagradstania enforces, is the Ptyxurian Constitution (the Constitution created by one of Durkadurkagradstania's former allies, Ptyxur, who unfortunately collapsed). There is only one political party, since the government has not yet been challenged. To date, the party in control of the country does not abide by a name, but could simply be called the Party of the Right.
Durkadurkagradstania currently operates by city states, meaning that each city is considered to be a different state. The capital city state is Vokinhsalk, and it is here that Kragen Plaza is located. The second state, the industrial state, is Tromovolkistanikihalla-allahgrad (pronounced "Tromo-voke-ah-stan-ih-kih-hallah-allah-grad). The industrial state was added to Durkadurkagradstania as of 21 October 2008. The Presenkragen is in charge of Vokinhsalk, the Vice Presenkragen administrates Tromovolkistanikihalla-allahgrad, and the War General administrates Mingyland.
It should also be noted that each city has its own flag.
The Credo of Durkadurkagradstania, recited upon becoming a new citizen of the country, was created 26 January 2006. It expresses the objectives of the micronation and its beliefs. It is written in English and translated into Mikolian below.
