Proto-Millanian States Period
The Principality of Nicosia was the first proto-millanian state, founded October 16, 2018. It was a fledgeling nation, run by a small group, and only lasted until around Halloween. The Republic of New Granada was modeled after the old Republic of Gran Colombia. The Republic soon fell into turmoil, with many secessionist movements, and fraudulent political movements. The Republic of Millania was an autocratic state, which overthrew the Republic, first founded before the Empire, where all of Millania's policies derive from. It stabilized the state, and allowed for much development to take place.
Millania declared Independence as a micronation on December 1, 2017. On January 11, Millania joined the United Micropact. Millania saw an immense boom in development since then.
First Granadine-Cornosian War
Millania Asked the government of Smithlandia of Kentucky for a formal unification of nations. On January 15, The People's Democratic Republic of Smithlandia responded by declaring war on Millania. At 2:17 p.m. on January 17, 2018, Smithlandia of Kentucky (the successor state of the People's Republic) agreed to cede its land over to the Imperial Empire of Millania and New Granada, ending the Millania-Smithlandian war. Smithlandia was split into two autonomous duchies, the Grand Duchy of Howell, and the Duchy of Smithland.
The Cornosian Rebellion, Also known as the Millanian Civil War, began on January 28, 2018, when Connor Smith, Duke and Former Dictator of Smithlandia declared independence with no prior notice, and then declared war once more. Thus, the Second war began. In late morning, an unprecedented activity of great magnitude took place - The end of the Cornosian Rebellion. At exactly 11:00am HKT, June 2, 2018, a treaty was signed between the Imperial Empire of Millania and New Granada and the Rebel Cornosian Government, ending The Cornosian Rebellion.
The Millanain Imperial Family released an executive reform document, creating a stronger parliament, better Subdivisions, and a redesign of the Nation's Interior. The Millanian Parliament was split into 2 houses, and Departments were Remade into Prefectures, and the borders were redrawn. Millania began implementing a more uniform and professional system, better reflecting the intended balance of power.
Four leaders came together, beginning the Summit of the Four Kingdoms. The Imperial Empire of Millania and New Granada, the Grand Sultanate of Howelliville, the Kingdom of Anderssonia, and Smithlandia of Kentucky (Now Cornosia). Representatives of the House of Uribe, the Kingdom of Prietstein (a constituent kingdom of Millania), the Shogunate of Canton, the Order of the Great Dragon of the East, the House of Ávila, the House of Vargas, and the House of Butler were all present. They all (with the notable exception of Anderssonia) decided to Unite under the banner of Millania. Therefore, the Imperial Empire of Millania and New Granada, and Lands represented by the Crown, was to be known as the United Kingdoms of Millania and New Granada, and Lands Represented by the Crowns of the Council of Four. The Millanian Parliament added Two Seats in the following elections for Howelliville, and Cornosia. The Millanian Imperial Family remained the leading force in Millania, but a strong federation was formed between the following kingdoms, yet even with their own kings, the leaders swore allegiance to the the Millanian Crown; The Millanian Empire, The Sultanate of Howelliville, The Kingdom of Cornosia, The Shogunate of Canton, The Kingdom of Prietstein, The Barony of Uribia, The Duchy of Llamashimananu, (The previous four are constituent Kingdoms led by the House of Millán,) The Order of the Great Dragon of the East, and Anderssonia (Becoming a Millanian Commonwealth State, wanting to carry out its affairs independently instead of unification.) The Order of the Great Dragon of the East became a Sovereign Order, serving the UMNG, and the Millanian Commonwealth. The now Sovereign Order has No Territory, however will be Headquartered in Imperia, Canton. The Meeting Place of UMNG officials became the city of Imperia, in Canton, due to the fact that palaces of the four kingdoms are situated there, however the Imperial capital remains Nicosi.
Millania experienced a boom in activity, and legislation. This is the Period when the bulk of the Nakjatsa was drafted and approved. Millanian culture and language was created, and Poonist religious leaders made Lichingrad the "Vatican of Poon." Millania also saw massive reform, once again reforming the Parliament, and enforcing the first law beyond the Nakjatsa, the Economy Act.
The Seilung Crisis began on August 24, when Prime Minister Nicholas Randouler resigned from office, leaving the government "unfit to lead". By law, if two Prime Ministers resign in one term, the government is declared unfit to lead and is replaced by the Emperor and an appointed council. As expected by the Imperial Family, the loose federation between Millania, Howellville, and Cornosia was broken. King of Cornosia, Connor III, decided to break the treaty binding the three nations together into one mighty Empire, thus allowing for his own people to be placed under martial law by the other two nations. Connor Smith, King of Cornosia, began yet another rebellion, this time, nationwide. Former MPs Jack Satterfield, and Jackson Mariano, as well as Patriarch of the Poonist Faith Aidan Mefford, formed a rebel government (Known by the Millanian Army as the Mik) which aimed for the destruction of Millania as a whole. Smith was promptly exiled from his kingdom and Millania, whilst the other rebels have been removed from politics, and charged with treason, and high treason. Howelli Sultan, H.C.R.H. Edmund I, was informed and had the two Successor stares of Cornosia ceded to Howellville to form the Caliphate of Yochtia (named after the Yochtese, or natives of Howellville and Cornosia), after 7 days of Martial Law. Millanians residing in the Prefectures of Canton and Victoria were assured their safety, as the Military Mobilized within 24 hours. All embassies in said prefectures were closed for the time being. The new Republic that Smith formed is known as the Mik Autocracy in Exile by Millanians. At this point, half of the rebels were classified as inactive, and were returned to Millanian Society, leaving Smith and Satterfield. Millania declared war on the Mik Autocracy in Exile on September 18, 2018. After the signing of the Wrythe Convention, the Mik were removed from power in Millania.
Government and Politics
Main Article: Millanian Government
Millania is a representative democracy. The government is regulated by a system of checks and balances defined by the Millanic Nakjatsa, which serves as the country's supreme legal document. In the Millanian system, citizens are usually subject to one level of government; federal. In almost all cases, legislative officials are elected by a plurality vote of citizens by prefecture. There is no proportional representation at the federal level, and it is rare at lower levels.
The Millanian government is composed of three branches:
- Legislative: The bicameral (although one house has limited power) Terataga, made up of the House of Burgesses and the House of Peers; the Terataga drafts federal laws, declares war, and has the power to wield the economy.
- Executive: The Emperor is the commander-in-chief of the military, can veto legislative bills before they become law, and appoints the members of the Cabinet and other offices, who administer and enforce federal laws and policies.
- Judicial: The High Court and lower prefectural courts, whose judges are appointed by the Emperor, interpret laws and overturn those they find unconstitutional.
The members of the House of Prefects are elected in a Preferential System, which is more representative of voter population. The Imperial Magistrate, led by the High Justice of Millania, has three members, who serve for life. The local governments are structured in roughly similar fashion. The Prefect of each prefecture is directly elected, also by Preferential System. The original text of the Nakjatsa establishes the structure and responsibilities of the federal government and its relationship with the individual states. The first articles, which make up the Rights of Man, form the central basis of the rights of a Subject of the Crown. All laws and governmental procedures are subject to judicial review and any law ruled by the courts to be in violation of the Nakjatsa is voided.
