Bromenia, officially known as Macedon Republic of Bromenia, is a landlocked sovereign state with limited recognition in Southeast Europe on the Balkan peninsula. Since it's inception, Bromenia has developed a defined folk culture that has often infiltrated government and political process. Bromenia is the third smallest country by size and the smallest by population at 42 people within it's 16km2 borders, surrounded completely by the neighbouring state of Bulgaria whilst only being located 2 miles north from Greece. Independence was officially declared in 2013, and since then the country has been plying for worldwide recognition. According to a document released by the Bulgarian government in 2008; the town of Dragostin, Bromenia's capital, was officially "erased" by their registers. The Bromeni government believes this to be a rite of which to claim independence, stating that the Bulgarian government no longer owns the land by default.

The country has been described as a modern-day ethnic Macedonian heartland, with it's unique cultural sphere that denotes a progressivist movement in the Balkans. The government have a strong focus on the development of science and technology featuring numerous research facilities being founded within Bromenia proper or international units being part-funded by the government. Uniquely, all branded items and products are banned within Bromeni borders, a part of the egalitarianist government's legislature that branded products impede inequality. Three main religions are recognised in Bromenia: Buddhism, Christianity and Hinduism; making it the only state in Europe to officially recognise Buddhism and Hinduism as a main demographic religion within the country. Bromenia has long upheld official armed neutrality, with plans further to develop basic military units.
By the international community, Bromenia is not recognised officially as a country although the government has maintained a desire to join the United Nations and the European Union. It is often likened to a Balkan-Switzerland due to it's policies and lack of Head of State although it's culture is more similarly placed with the FYROM Macedonia. The country was also the first in Southeast Europe to recognise same-sex marriage, a constitutional adoption under the Medium Rights Act of 2014. There has been in place a 7 year plan to renovate the present capital of Dragostin, a town abandoned by the Bulgarians that is currently being undertaken by the Yanitěva, the national assembly.
Between the 27 September 2013 and the 4 January 2014 there was an interim period in which Bromenia was preparing to declare independence from Bulgaria. Within this period of time, a selective group of candidates stood forward for the Presidency of what was at the time to be known as the Socialist Republic of Bromenia. Mattias Kočjek and Darío Mazěva were the primary candidates for the office during this interim period. Independence was officially declared on the 4 January 2014, with Mazěva elected as President after a hard fought campaign, winning the vote by a margin of 63%, with Kočjek obtaining 27% of the vote and another 10% going to the other candidates involved. Within the interim period a constitution was drawn up by all of those participating in the first Bromeni government, to be known as the Yanitěva. An amended copy of this constitution remains in practice within the country to this day.
Socialist Republic of Bromenia
The Socialist Republic of Bromenia was the first official governing force over Bromenia. It was ruled as a Marxist-Leninist Single Party State under the Bromeni Workers Party, led by Darío Mazěva. The socialist government created policies bolstering equality as a key belief of the country, although these policies were not fully enacted. After the 4 January, Bromenia's parliament held it's first session 14 days later in which the Prohibition Act was announced, prohibiting all alcohol in the country.
