Republic of Kirael
The Republic of Kirael, also more commonly known as just Kirael, is a micronation located within the country of Finland, located within northern Europe. Kirael was founded by its incumbent leader, Erkki, on 30 August 2020, and operates on the social media platform known as Discord. Kirael is characterized by a commitment to policies aimed at curbing inequality, eliminating oppression of underprivileged groups and eradicating poverty as well as support for universally accessible public services like care for the elderly, child care, education, health care and workers' compensation. This are the principles of social democracy.

The Republic of Kirael started off as a capitalist nation, and then became socialist 19th of October, 2020. Recently as of writing this, Kirael has once more updated its economical status back to its original form, capitalism. As mentioned earlier, Kirael operates on Discord since they do not have the resources to maintain a government anywhere else. Because of this, it was seen more realist to have a socialist government with capitalist framing (social democracy).
The nation started off small, like many others
, and then suddenly started growing rapidly. Kirael got much support from allies and larger nations, which was one of the main reasons of the rapid growth. Advertisements in servers was also a key to gain members.
This peaceful nation remained neutral for some time until The United Socialist Republics (also known as Almendria), was taking control over the ally nation Ambestan. As said in the official constitution, the nation shall aid the weak and their allies. Kirael was contributing to the protest, along side Norsken.
The Kiraelian history is somewhat simulationist, although most events happened in the early days of the micronation's history. The country itself is considered realist.
At some point the leader of the Kingdom of Norsken decided to leave his micronation behind and make the leader of Kirael the heir. Kirael claimed the territory that Norsken once had, and saw it as an "autonomous republic" extending Kirael's borders and slightly increasing the population, however this was later removed due to simulationism.
Now the micronation has grown more ties with other micronations, and has overall developed their diplomacy.
Kirael was also once a part of the Progressive Association, but left due to inner conflicts between another association.
These are the main events of the history so far.
Politics and government
As it says in the country name, the nation is a republic, with a chancellor, ruling over most things, and a vice chancellor who is in charge of the nation if the leader cannot access Discord at the time for example. The vice chancellor can make larger decisions together with the chancellor since they are good friends. Of course, all citizens have the democratic privileges of voting on certain decisions as well. There is one prime minister, and two senators. The senators can also take part in meetings where they argue and make certain decisions. The prime minister receives some tasks from the higher ranks and decide certain things for themselves.
The government currently has four different political parties. The Social Democrats, Christian Democrats, Conservatives and the Confederation of Kiraelian anarchists and libertarians. The descriptions are below:
The Confederation of Kiraelian anarchists and libertarians is represented by the politician Emberglow. Its ideologies are Libertarian socialism, Minarcho Socialism, Syndicalism, Feminism, Anarchist Communism, Libertarian Marxism and enviromentalism. I know, it's a lot.
The Social Democrats are represented by the Chancellor Erkki Tšaikovsky. They stray for a society founded more by freedom, equality and solidarity. They think that each individual contributes to their own well being and common welfare. Justice is generated by the balance between rights and responsibility.
The Christian Democrats are represented by the politician Pohjan Poika. In practice, Christian democracy is often considered centre-right on cultural, social and moral issues, but centre-left "with respect to economic and labor issues, civil rights, and foreign policy" as well as the environment. Christian democrats support a social market economy.
The Conservative Party is represented by the politician and ally leader Warmedic. The party has a political and social philosophy promoting traditional social institutions. Adherents of conservatism often oppose modernism and seek a return to traditional values.
The government has an assembly (Kiraelian State Assembly) which consists of seven seats, and creates laws e.g. criminal act, citizenship act, etc.
Kirael has also agreed upon the standards of the Edgbaston Convention, as well as the Wrythe convention, meaning Kirael stepping further into professionalism. They also signed the Libertas Convention to be an accepted member state of the LIN.
Law and order
The Republic of Kirael does have a court room, although it isn't used very often. If though, there was a hypothetical case that would have to be solved, the people in charge of the nation would look into it and question the accused person. If they make a conclusion that there were false accusations against the person being accused, they will look further into it, as expected. The court trials are pretty generic, but there might be some differences considering the fact that it works digitally.
Reasons for punishments can be: not abiding by the country laws, insulting the sovereignty of Kirael, causing unnecessary trouble and noise or just generally behaving unacceptably. Different punishments can be: Getting jailed, having to do something extra, being kicked out of the server, or in the worst case getting restricted from entering the country in the future.
Kirael maintains bilateral ties with the following nations:
- The Nexan Republic
- Monmarkian Empire
- The Greater Norsken
- The Coleman Empire
- The Tinakulan International Zone
- Republic of the Union of Eastasia
- State of Vishwamitra
- The Valencian Republic
- The Limbonian Federal Republic
The government doesn't use a military since it operates on Discord, but there are however server moderators who can take care of the conflict in the server if someone behaves unacceptably.
