The '''Viceroyalty of Phokland''' is a "[[w:Constituent Country|Constituent Country]]" of the [[Principality of Domanglia]] with territorial claims made in areas within the borders of the [[w:U.S. state|U.S. state]] of [[w:Arizona|Arizona]]. The state was created (originally) as a political experiment, designed to prove that a nation's government can be successfully ran by young adults/teenagers.
The name '''Phokland''' comes from a combination of the country name of [[w:Poland|Poland]] and the word "f**k". In the past however, the nation of Phokland went under different names...
===Official Names===
*10 February [[2007]] – 11 December [[2013]]: '''Kingdom of Rosston'''
*13 December [[2017]] – 27 April [[2018]]: '''[[People's Republic of Phokland]]'''
*27 April [[2018]] – 11 November [[2018]]: '''Principality of Phokland'''
*11 November [[2018]] – ''Current'': '''Viceroyalty of Phokland'''
The '''Viceroyalty of Phokland''' has existed in some capacity (excluding a four year hiatus) since [[2007]]. During this time, the country has gone through four different names (and governmental structures).
==Pre-Phoklandian History==
The idea of Phokland was first conceived by [[Prince Charles I|Charles Ross]] in early [[2007]] as a way to establish an absolute monarchical kingdom in the playground of his primary school in [[w:Gilbert Arizona|Gilbert, Arizona]]. The nation officially came into existence at noon on the 10th of February [[2007]]. The new nation was given the name of the '''Kingdom of Rosston''' and [[Prince Charles I|Charles Ross]] was given the title of '''King Charles I'''. The initial land claim of the kingdom was made up of the sandbox and play structure of the playground. Eventually however, other territories were added to the nation. These areas included King Charles' bedroom and the local swimming pool (though the claims to these territories were disputed). In addition, many of the King's friends also joined the nation as subjects during this time. Though originally fictional in nature, the Kingdom of Rosston was able to get minor recognition from the school and (to a lesser extent) the neighborhood it resided in.
[[File:Rosston.png|200px|thumb|Flag of the '''Kingdom of Rosston''' (concept)]]
The nation continued in this capacity until late [[2013]] when it was decided by [[Prince Charles I|King Charles I]] that the nation lacked the motivation necessary to continue it's existence. Therefore on the evening of the 11th of December [[2013]], The Kingdom of Rosston (as a nation) was dissolved and [[Prince Charles I|King Charles I]] indefinitely suspended his role as monarch.
Following four years of inactivity, Rosston's original founder [[Prince Charles I|Charles Ross]] and his friend '''Duke Brock Lang''' sought to restore the Kingdom. However, unlike it's previous (fictional) form the new nation was designed to act as as a political experiment. This experiment would be to prove that young adults (e.g. older teenagers) were capable of running a government successfully. The idea was created in response to the two founders becoming angry at their home nation's lack of respect towards younger people and it's lack of governmental representation for teenagers and young adults.
==Initial Independence==
On the evening of 13 December [[2017]], [[Prince Charles I]] (then Prime Minister) and '''Duke Brock Lang''' (then Minister of Defense) ratified the first Phoklandian Declaration of Independence, thus re-establishing the Kingdom of Rosston. However, it was decided soon after independence that the nation would change it's name to '''Phokland''' and (for a short time) not have a monarchy. Thus re-establishing the country as a [[Republic|Democratic Republic]].
==[[People's Republic of Phokland]]==
From 13 December [[2017]] until 27 April [[2018]], Phokland functioned as a [[Republic|Democratic Republic]], with [[Prince Charles I|Charles Aelred Ross]] serving as the nation's first Prime Minister. During this time, the country saw the establishment of it's first governing body '''The Emergency Senate''' as well as the acquisition of Phokland's first official area of territory as the result of a land purchase by [[Prince Charles I| Prime Minister Ross]]. This time period also saw the beginning Phoklad's relationship with the now defunct [[Grand Imperial Empire of Lanzantonia|Empire of Lanzantonia]].
[[File:Phokland1.jpg|300px|thumb|Aerial map of the [[People's Republic of Phokland]]'s original land claim]]
==Phoklandian Unification==
Between the 26th and 27th of April, [[2018]] the then [[People's Republic of Phokland]] suffered a national crisis when the former Defense Minister, '''Duke Brock Lang''' resigned from his position and (for the most part) left the nation. This event left Prime Minister [[Prince Charles I|Ross]] as the only active citizen of the country. Due to this, it was decided that the Prime Minister would re-establish his status as a monarch in the form of a [[Prince]] and that the nation would be re-established as a Principality.
Hours after this decision, '''Duke Brock Lang''' changed his mind about leaving the country and was shortly thereafter appointed to the role of Prime Minister, a position that he occupied until he was voted out of office during the [[2018 Phoklandian Prime Ministerial Elections|2018 elections]] replacing him with the Chairman of the Phokland First Party, [[Sir James Ellis]].
==Reign of [[Prince Charles I]]==
Following the Phoklandian Unification, Prime Minister [[Prince Charles I|Charles Ross]] was declared [[Monarch of Phokland|Monarch]] of the now [[Principality]] of Phokland. Under this new government, the nation saw a rise in population growing from two people in April of [[2018]] to thirty three by October of that same year. The new government also formalised the military of Phokland and entered into diplomatic relations with other states such as the [[Republic of Bonumland]] and [[The United Micronational Assembly]].
==Domanglian Annexation==
On 11th November [[2018]], Phokland was annexed by the [[Principality of Domanglia]]. This annexation was the result of a lack of resources that led to the complete collapse of Phokland's economy and a need for a more stable ruling government. [[Principality of Domanglia|Domanglian]] annexation was seen as the best option for fixing this and Phokland was given to them. However, among the conditions of this annexation were the abilities for Phokland to self govern themselves through a new local government and for the [[Monarch of Phokland]], [[Prince Charles I]] to act as [[w:Viceroy|Viceroy]] of the new state while retaining the title of [[Monarch of Phokland|Prince]].
The '''Viceroyalty of Phokland''' is a [[Skillocracy|Skillocratic]] [[Monarchy]]/[[Aristocracy]], with a [[w:Viceroy|Viceroy]] as head of the State and a First Minister as head of the local government. The [[w:Viceroy|Viceroy]] acts as leader of the government, acting (for the most part) autonomously from the rest of the Phoklandian government. The job of the [[w:Viceroy|Viceroy]] is to create and administer laws for the viceroyalty and at the same time to advise the monarch of [[Domanglia]] on Phoklandian issues. Contrary to this, the First Minister has the task of advising the Viceroy on non-governmental affairs and is given complete control over all interior affairs in regards to non-governmental offices. The First Minister also has emergency power to overrule decisions made by the Viceroy if such decisions are found to be detrimental to the well being of the [[w:Viceroyalty|Viceroyalty]]. However, no member of the Phoklandian Government may go against the wishes of the [[Principality of Domanglia|Monarch of Domanglia]] unless the monarch is deemed "incapable" of acting out his'/her's duty to Phokland.
[[File:Bog.jpeg|200px|thumb|Flag of the '''Principality of Phokland''' hanging in a citizen's bedroom]]
There are four main departments in the local government of Phokland: the Office of the Viceroy, the Office of the First Minister, the Office of the Phoklandian Coast Guard, and the Local Defence Office. With the exception of the Viceroy (which is an hereditary position) and the offices of '''Minister of Agriculture''' and '''Cultural/Entertainment Minister''' (which are appointed positions rather than elected ones), the holders of these and all other electable [[List of Phoklandian Ministers|government positions]] are elected every two years on the 1st of October (the anniversary of the date that the idea of Phokland was first conceived). Any individual who is elected to any of these offices may re-run as many times as they like. If no individuals run for any of these offices, the siting Viceroy may appoint an individual over the age of thirteen to fill the position until the next election.
''The incumbent holders of each governmental office are as follows:''
*'''Viceroy:''' HSH [[Prince Charles I]]
*'''First Minister:''' [[Sir James Ellis]]
*'''Minister of Agriculture:''' [[Phokland Labor Party|Dame Mia Sanchez]]
*'''Director of The Phoklandian Coast Guard''': Lady Leilani Gabriel
*'''Minister of Local Defense:''' Minister Chloe Graham
*'''Director of The Phoklandian Border Patrol:''' Captain Nums
*'''Chief Justice of the Phoklandian Viceregal Court:''' [[House of Ross|The Honorable Kevin M. Ross]]
*'''[[Phokland News Network|Local Press Minister:]]''' HSH [[Prince Charles I]]
*'''Minister of Culture and Entertainment:''' Robert Dunakin
*'''Minister of Public Safety:''' Sam Johnson
==Political Parties==
Following the lifting of a ban on organized political groups in late [[2018]], certain parties have formed based on theology and ideology. These parties include...

[[File:Jack.png|200px|thumb|"Jack" flag of the Phoklandian Coast Guard (Welsh: ''Baner "Jack" Gwarchod Arfordir Phokland'')]]
At present, the only official branch of military for Phokland is it's [[Phoklandian Coast Guard|Coast Guard]]. This is due to the large lake that surrounds most of the state's territory. The Coast Guard has adopted the same ranking system as that of the U.S. Navy, with the exception of the rank of Chief Admiral.
For the most part, the [[Phoklandian Coast Guard]] serves a ceremonial purpose as Phokland is under the military protection of the [[Principality of Domanglia]].
The [[Phoklandian Coast Guard]] consists of eleven individuals and one boat, the ''P.C.G. Langston'' (named after founding member Brock Lang). There also exists the Phoklandian Royal Guard, a detachment tasked with the protection of the sitting Monarch, the Viceroy  and other "high priority" government officials.
Additionally, the Phoklandian Border Patrol and the [[Domanglian Foreign Intelligence Service]] exist as private organisations contracted by the Phoklandian Government to patrol the land borders of Phokland's territory and to protect Phoklandian and Domanglian citizens. While under contract, these organizations are under the direct command of the Viceroy but are officially part of the '''Local Defence Office'''.
==Pre-Annexation Conflicts==
*Between 14 December [[2017]] and 27 April [[2018]], Phokland was engaged in the [[Conquest of New Persia]].
*On 4 April [[2018]], [[Prince Charles I]] declared war against the nation of Mangolia, primarily due to it's declaration of war against [[Iustus]] (a former Phoklandian ally). Two days later, Mangolia surrendered and was reconstituted as the [[Republic of South Mangolia]] with partial political control being gifted to the Phoklandian Government.
*On 9 April [[2018]], the remnants of the Mangolian Army regrouped and declared war on the Principality of Phokland, the [[Principality of Gleichenberg]] and the [[Grand Imperial Empire of Lanzantonia]] (another former Phoklandian ally). On August 7th of the same year, [[Prince Charles I]] declared an unofficial ceasefire with the Mangolian rebels due to the fact that the conflict had essentially turned into a "cold war". Plus, a financial decline in Phokland had made a continuation of the war effort seemingly "impractical".
The Viceroyalty of Phokland is currently split into six provinces. Each of the provinces are primarily self governing but still fall under the reign of the [[Monarch of Phokland|Viceroy of Phokland]] and the [[Principality of Domanglia]]. In addition, Phokland is further divided into two Domanglian Parliamentary Constituencies. These constituencies are Greater Phokland (made up of: Emosia, New Persia and Macadamia) and Lesser Phokland (made up of: Capitis, Greenlandia and Libertalia).
