Vertigo, officialy the Republic of Vertigo (formerly: Presidency of Vertigo), is a micronation which its government is currently located in Jerusalem, Israel.
Vertigo was established by President Roi A. Gerszkoviez and three other citizens.
The goal of Vertigo is to create a new society, based on justice and truth, that educates to love people and will avoid war and hate. It claims the [w:Socorro Island|Socorro Island], but already declared it will only act diplomatically to gain de-facto control on that land.
The origin of the name Vertigo is a Spanish word that means speed, velocity. President Gerszkoviez liked the word, and thought it could be a great name for his nation.
Vertigo was established on 5 August 2014, as the Presidency of Vertigo. It grew fast, establishing diplomatic relations with other micronations, and joining the Nollandish Confederacy on 20 August 2014.
After estblishing the new nation, President Gerszkoviez assembled a National Parliament with four citizens of Vertigo taking part in it.
30 September reconstruction
Some days after assembling the Parliament, one of the Parliament Members have been judged for treason, and his nationality was taken from him. The Parliament had only three members left.
A month after that incident, President Gerszkoviez felt the lack of activity by the Parliament members, and decided to disassemble it. He decided to take the nationality from all of the citizens who were not active enough. He also published a message about disassembling the Parliament and the reconstruction he decided to start:
"On 30 September 2014, 01:10AM (UTC+2), the Vertigan Parliament have been disassembled and the entire nation is now under massive reconstruction."
Gerszkoviez decided to start new institutions and organizations, such as the national eSports association and the national broadcasting authority. He also decided to start some governmental companies, such as VCom.
Vertigo - the disassemble
Vertigo went into the defunct status as of 06 August 2015. It happened because of Gerszkoviez being the only active citizen, who failed to do anything important and also report about it. He retired from micronationalism a short while after that. After almost a month, on 03 September 2015, Gerszkoviez came back to micronationalism, bringing Vertigo back to life.
Transition to Republic
On 11 October 2015, Gerszkoviez announced about a new governmental structure, converting Vertigo into a Republic. 
This new structure is based on some ideas from the Roman Republic and also has some Direct and Parliamentary Democracy ideas.
The Vertigan culture is a new culture, based on justice and love. It is affected by many other cultures, especially by the Israeli, Argentine and Kurdish cultures. The main official language in Vertigo is English.
While all religions are legal in Vertigo, there's no official religion.
Exploiting or abusing any religion for the purpose of war and hate is a criminal offense punishable by the revocation of citizenship and deportation or by death penalty (in extreme cases).
