State of Samizdat
|This article contains information pertaining to a fictional micronation, micronationalist or other fictional element of micronational society or culture.|
The State of Samizdat is a virtual state located in a hidden area of the internet called "Onionland". It was established in line with the Montevideo Convention (1933) in May 2019. This micronation has formally claimed the territory of Marie Byrd Land and at one time also laid claim to a one-hectare family plot in Spain. This claim was finally dropped on 3 July 2020. On October 1st, 2019, a call to action was made by the Samizdat government in four different languages (English, Catalan, Spanish & French) asking for the territory to be "invaded" and occupied peacefully by activists. This was in no way a "declaration of independence" from Spain, as the State of Samizdat is a micronation born out of the internet on 20 May 2020. Samizdat's constitution of 26th May confirms this fact.

Etymology of Name
The word Samizdat is Russian in origin. It was used during the Soviet era to refer to the production and distribution by ordinary citizens of government censored political material. The State of Samizdat, established 20 May 2020, sees itself as an anti-establishment microstate, with strong anti-Marxist tendencies. It is a supporter of the Europe of sovereign states, and very much an opponent of the EU project, even going so far as to declare war on the EU.
The State of Samizdat was originally established to represent the community of TOR users in Onionland, but has since developed into a wider project. It has claimed land in the South Pole, recognised several independent states, awarded medals and other awards, and named a government.
Medal of Honour & Truth
The State of Samizdat awards Medals of Honour & Truth to honourable individuals it considers have contributed most to advancing truth. This can be expressed in any form: political truth, journalistic truth, scientific truth or artistic truth. There is no limit to the amount of medals that can be awarded per annum, though an individual may be awarded this medal only once.

Person of the Year Award
Once a year the State of Samizdat grants one individual the honour of being named the person of the year. The choice is based on that person's positive contribution to culture or politics. This award is made on an annual basis on Saint Stephen's Day (Dec 26th) and can only be granted to one individual. There is no shortlist of candidates and the results are announced via our social media channel.

Broken Aura Award
The State of Samizdat issues Broken Aura Awards to individuals whose aura is broken or who have lost their light. There are no specific categories for these awards, which are mainly given to people in the public eye who, by their actions, have demonstrated a lack of human empathy towards others.
Competition for these awards is stiff, so the State of Samizdat awards these prizes on a regular basis and not just annually. These prestigious accolades were first introduced on 10 January 2020 and were awarded mainly to unscrupulous politicians.

The State of Samizat declares Christianity to be the official state religion. No other religion will hold the same status, be offered the same representation, or be equal in standing. All state laws will reflect Christian values and Christian symbols will be present in public buildings and public areas.
— State Decree; March 3rd, 2020
No other religion in the State of Samizdat shares the same status, rights or are reflected in the micronation's laws.
On 27 July 2020 the State of Samizdat rejected the decision by Turkish President Erdoğan to convert the Cathedral of Hagia Sophia into a mosque, calling on the international community to condemn the decision and for the cathedral to remain a place of worship for Christians.
The State of Samizdat recently launched a radio station called Radio Samizdat. It also runs a social media page on Minds and a Twitter account.
The State of Samizdat has a unique form of decentralised government. Members of the government are appointed to ministerial and diplomatic posts according to their abilities and knowledge. All appointments are subject to acceptance by those appointed. So far, several appointments have been made. More appointments are likely in the future.

A Political Compass test shows political views on a scale or grid. Dictators like Hitler show up very clearly on the authoritarian fascist scale firmly to the political centre. Other authoritarian leaders like Stalin, are placed on the left on the scale. Margaret Thatcher appears further to the right than Hitler, but less authoritarian in her political views.
Samizdat's own Compass Scale test, shows surprisingly left-wing, libertarian tendencies but almost in the centre between authoritarian and libertarian. We can conclude from the Compass Test that the political views in the State of Samizdat are Centre-Left with slight libertarian tendencies, similar to those of Gandhi who was more left-wing and more libertarian.
There are two official languages in Samizdat: English and French. The language of state administration and diplomacy is English, with French being used for communication and cultural reasons. Spanish was removed from the list of official languages on 3 July 2020.
The State of Samizdat has adopted the following people, plants and animals as national symbols. These reflect the culture and values of this micronation. Lavander was chosen as the national flower because of its ability to ward off flies and its beautiful smell in summer. The adoption of the penguin as the national animal may seem an odd choice, but penguins are cute animals and can be very friendly.
|24 July 2019||National flower - Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)||Confirmation|

Law and order
The State of Samizdat regards illegal activities online as being just as illegal offline. The written constitution makes this clear, going as far as encouraging web masters and hosting companies to monitor and delete all illegal content.
There are four levels of alert in the State of Samizdat: Low, Significant, High and Severe. Political instability and violence in neighbouring Spain have at times increased the Alert Level, as when the Spanish Supreme Court sentenced Catalan leaders to 13 years prison for "sedition" over an independence bid. This led to riots in Catalonia and the use of force by Spain.
The State of Samizdat has declared the following groups "criminal" or "terrorist" organisations:
A group called Unidas Podemos was removed from this list on 17 August 2020.
Mutual recognition initiatives between microstates is something welcomed by the State of Samizdat. The Montevideo Convention (1933) makes recognition by other states, an essential part of its definition of a state.
Samizdat will gladly enter into diplomatic initiatives on mutual recognition with similar microstates on MicroWiki, as this is part of this micronation's foreign policy. Please feel free to contact our Secretary of State to channel your diplomatic requests via this e-mail: email@example.com

States which recognise Samizdat
The following micronations have recognised the State of Samizdat:
Tacit recognition from Samizdat
The following states have received tacit recognition from the State of Samizdat without recognition being formally expressed.
• United kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland - Tacit recognition here
• Italy - Tacit recognition here
• Belarus - Tacit recognition here
• China - Tacit recognition here
States refused recognition by Samizdat
The following nations have been refused recognition by the State of Samizdat on legal grounds:
• Kingdom of Spain
• Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus - The State of Samizdat stated that "This island territory was invaded and occupied by Turkey in 1974 and is regarded by Samizdat as Greek land."
Unrecognised Treaties & Agreements
The State of Samizdat does not recognise or accept the following treaties, international agreements or laws. All such agreements and treaties are regarded as null and void, having been declared illegal by state decree.
• EU Withdrawal Treaty - Brexit withdrawal agreement between EU and UK. Declared null and void - 27 January 2020.
• Paris Accord - agreement on climate change. Declared illegal - 7 December 2019.
The State of Samizdat has not declared war on any sovereign nation, though it did declare war on the European Union on the 25th January 2020. This followed several warnings made to the European Commission on the issue of the Brexit Withdrawal Treaty. Samizdat considers the EU Treaty to be an attack on the freedoms and rights of the British people and intended the declaration of war to reflect this.
Tensions between the State of Samizdat and the EU had been running high long before the declaration of war in January 2020. On 3 July 2019, the EU's head of diplomacy, Josep Borrell, was declared persona non grata, a month later a first war warning was issued and on 14 October 2019, the State of Samizdat demanded the resignation of German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
The declaration of war did not extend to EU member states, but rather the European Union itself. This is because the EU, although not a sovereign nation, acts like a sovereign nation: it has a flag, national anthem and even aspires to having its own army. It is therefore right to consider the EU a "pretend nation".
In its final warning to the EU on the 24th October 2019, the State of Samizdat made the following declaration:
"With this explicit warning we are making it clear to the European Commission that a state of war will exist between the EU and the State of Samizdat if the Withdrawal Treaty is ratified. A final, formal Declaration of War will be sent to the EU by the State of Samizdat, as required under the Charter of the United Nations. This declaration is legal under the UN charter in cases of self-defence. We regard this situation as a direct attack against the British people who have the right to defend themselves from EU enslavement."
On 27 January 2020, the State of Samizdat declared the EU Withdrawal Treaty null and void, which along with other agreeements and treaties, has no legal validity after having been declared "illegal" by state decree. Two days before Brexit, all European Union treaties including: the Maastricht Treaty, Treaty of Rome, Treaty of Lisbon, and all other treaties passed by the European Union and EEC since its foundation, are also declared null and void by the State of Samizdat.
To date, a state of war between the EU and Samizdat still exists. So far there have been several attacks launched against the MicroWiki page of the State of Samizdat, it happened the day after the declaration of war , 26 January 2020. The attack was carried out by a group calling itself the gayniggersrevengeforce. The deleted content was restored by MicroWiki.
A new pro-EU radical feminist group calling itself the League for European Federalism in Samizdat (LEFS) has since threatened to overthrow the government of Samizdat. The group's demands, which were published in a social network called Minds, included a demand that Greta Thumberg be declared "a national hero".

The State of Samizdat has come out strongly on the side of the USA in the diplomatic spat with China. Since the closure of the Chinese embassy in Houston due to spying activities, Samizdat has taken several measures against China including a ban on Huawei products (see Economic Sanctions below). The State of Samizdat does not recognise China as a sovereign state, nor does it recognise the Chinese government in Pekin.
In a recent Statement of Condemnation, the State of Samizdat condemned Mao Tse Tung for the deaths of some 40 million Chinese citizens and called on the present General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party to apologise to the Chinese people.
Apart from China, the State of Samizdat has imposed economic sanctions on one other country so far. The reasons for sanctions can vary, but they are mainly the result of political decisions or acts of aggression. The sanctions which the State of Samizdat can impose include the prohibition on the import of food products, as was the case of sanctions imposed against Spain in 2019.

In all cases, the State of Samizdat demands the immediate release from prison for all political prisoners.
• Catalan leader Oriol Junqueras
Samizdat has no active military, but is hoping to build a tank.
The State of Samizdat issued its first car registration number plate on 1 August 2019. It is white with black lettering, both front and back, with a pale blue border. Unlike ordinary number plates, it is a standard import size. New number plates are issued every year on August 1st. The year of registration is indicated by the last two numbers. The number 19 is 2019. The first letter and four numbers are chosen at random.
The international vehicle registration code (sometimes called the International Circulation Mark) is unique to each nation. The State of Samizdat adopted the International vehicle registration code SMZ on 4 August 2019. An example car sticker can be seen on the left.
The official currency in Samizdat is the cryptocurrency known as Bitcoin. It's a virtual currency unit often used to make online transactions. Many investors now consider Bitcoins a good investment as it cuts out the middle men (banks) and has low running costs. The Bitcoin economy is now well established worldwide.
Postal Service & Stamps
The State of Samizdat issues commemorative stamps on special occasions and for annual events. The first stamp was issued in December 2019 and like all the stamps issued by the State of Samizdat, it had no face value. This is because the postal services in Samizdat are free. This is due to the small size of the territory claimed by the State of Samizdat. Such stamps are merely collectors' items.
Below are the postal stamps issued so far, the date when it was issued and a brief description. On the left, is the very first stamp issued by the State of Samizdat in December 2019.
Stamps issued to date
The State of Samizdat considers climate change to be a hoax. On August 8th, 2019 Samizdat announced that it would not be signing the Paris Accord, because it considers the "scientific" evidence for climate change to be bogus. Some months later, the United States pulled out of the Paris Agreement, prompting the State of Samizdat to congratulate Donald Trump. Samizdat is now urging China to pull out of this agreement. More recently however, the State of Samizdat has launched its own environmental programme, called Kiss My Planet Now!, with measures to help clean up the environment. Below are the measures taken so far.

The State of Samizdat is located in an area affected by the Corona virus. It recently issued a statement urging Italy, the first European country to suffer an outbreak of Corona virus, to suspend the Schengen agreement and close all its borders to prevent the spread of the virus. Samizdat also urged the Italian authorities to halt the illegal trafficking of migrants, some of whom originate from Asia, and to prevent NGO migrant ships from docking in Italy.
On Friday 13 March, the State of Samizdat announced that "All political and cultural activities" were "suspended due to Coronavirus, until further notice". This period of suspension ended on the 3rd of July 2020.

The Law for the Protection of Men's Rights was passed on March 4th 2020, and came into force four days later (March 8). The law states that men have: the right to equal treatment under the law. The new law contains four important points which protect the right of men to chose for themselves on the issue of parenthood. The law also outlines the punishments for violating such rights.
The equal rights law contains four clauses: 1. All men shall be protected from false accusations of sexual assault or harassment by women. 2. All men are owners of their own sperm. 3. All men in the State of Samizdat have the right NOT to be a father. 4. All men have the right TO BE a father.
With this law, the State of Samizdat hopes to guarantee the rights of all men to equal treatment under the law on issues rarely discussed in other micronations. For the first time, men are owners of their sperm and the unauthorised use of such becomes a punishable offense. They are also guaranteed by law the right to be, or not to be, a father.
On the issue of "feminism" the State of Samizdat is clear: "The promotion of feminist values shall be regarded as an attack on the traditional family and the state. All funding for such political causes will be stopped." The law regulating feminism and "gender studies", was passed on July 23, 2020. It states: "The funding of gender studies at universities will be unlawful. No public money will be given to organisations claiming to be feminist".
Under the new law, the "promotion of feminism through the arts, literature, theatre and the media will be banned and subject to prosecution". The State of Samizdat does not recognise violence as a gender issue. Women are regarded as having the same rights as men.
The State of Samizdat does not believe the liberal concept of multiculturalism is a positive social aspect of a nation state. Radically different, often conflicting cultures, lead to ghettos and social disunity. Samizdat considers that "monoculturalism", that is to say, a common set of values and norms, contribute most to social cohesion and a sense of national identity.
In a statement published on 12 August 2020, this point was made clear: "Mass forced immigration from conflicting cultures leads to the loss of social cohesion, common values and accepted norms. This in turn, leads to segregation and ghettoisation."
The State of Samizdat recently published a statement rejecting gender politics: It read: "The State of Samizdat rejects the industrial scale labelling of men as "aggressors" in the name of eliminating violence against women. Such violence is of individual responsibility, no-one other than the aggressor is responsible. Violence has no gender. Men are not automatically the aggressor, and women are not always the victims."
The State of Samizdat has never officially issued a state decree on the subject of LGBT rights, but below is a summary of the current state of LGBT rights in this micronation. All rights are similar to those of any micronation: same-sex marriage, age of consent and right to inherit. The only exception being the right to adopt children which is not possible at the present time.
The State of Samizdat recently launched a campaign to stop human trafficking into Europe. The campaign involves identifying and targetting vessels involved in the trafficking of human beings. Many of these vessels are run by fake NGO's and mafias working from northern Africa. So far five pirate ships have been identified and targeted for direct action. The State of Samizdat remains hopeful their anti-human trafficking campaign will succeed in reducing this illegal activity.

Euthanasia, Abortion & Capital Punishment
The State of Samizdat does not have a formal position on the issue of abortion (apart from the Law for the Protection of Men's Rights or capital punishment (death penalty) though it is clear these practices are unlikely to be legal in its territory. On the issue of euthanasia, however, the State of Samizdat made its views clear on 4 August 2020. Euthanasia is illegal in all circumstaces even going so far as to condemn those nations with euthanasia legislation on the 18 December 2020.
The State of Samizdat is leading a campaign to tackle the difficult and often misunderstood issue of government sponsored electronic harassment of citizens. Such torture tecniques are used worldwide on so-called targeted individuals (TI). Spain is one of those countries which secretly uses electronic weapons on individuals as a form of government harassment.
The State of Samizdat has to date issued one offical warning to the Spanish authorities on this issue. The anti-electronic harassment campaign is likely to include measures to help TI's protect themselves from this form of remote torture as well as to bring this often ignored issue to the attention of micronationalists.
Recently, a leaked document from the US Department of Homeland Security suggests that such electronic harassment weapons are indeed being used on citizens. RFID weapons (also known as psycho-electronic weapons) may even be used for mind control purposes and to induce pain, as illustrated by the leaked diagram (left). Remote mind control technology can be operated from mobile phone networks (5G), as a second leaked diagram shows (right).
