Overseas Territory of Plushunia

Aenopian Plushunia is an overseas territory of Plushunia. It was founded on 4 August 2019 by incumbent Governor Logan Ross. Consisting of an area of 57m² located within the Aenopian state of Aenopian Calver. An important aspect of Aenopian Plushunia (and of Plushunia as a whole) is that it recognises toys as citizens, despite not having any plush residents.

Despite being an Overseas Territory of Plushunia, it is recognised by the Aenopian Government as a Dependency of the Empire of Aenopia due to its Geographic location and association with the state. As a result, it is recognised as being 'politically part of Plushunia and Geographically part of Aenopia' by Governor Logan Ross, similar to the commune of Campione d'Italia.

Aenopian Plushunia relies heavily on the Aenopian territory of Aenopian Calver, particularly because of the underdeveloped status of the territory. The capital of Aenopian Plushunia is de-facto White located in Aenopian Calver, primarily because the territory lacks any settlements.

Etymology

The name "Aenopian Plushunia" comes from Aenopia, which the territory was formerly part of, and from Plushunia, which Aenopian Plushunia is currently part of.

History

On 22 July 2019, Empire of Aenopia (a fellow ex-OAM state and ally of Plushunia) annexed a small field near to the village of Calver, in Derbyshire. Within the claim is located the cities of White and Sough which are separated by a few metres of land which was initially intended to serve as an Embassy of the Empire of Emosia. During the opening days of August, both the leaders of Aenopia and Plushunia were in talks of forming an overseas territory located within the Aenopian territory of Aenopian Calver. In the end, it was decided to locate it in the small space between the Aenopian cities. On 5 August 2019, following discussions with Plushunia, it was decided to gift a small section of land between the cities of White and Sough as an Overseas Territory of Plushunia. [1]

Climate

Aenopian Plushunia, like its macronational host Great Britain, has a temperate climate. Temperatures are usually within a range of 2 °C - 7 °C in winter but can drop as low as -11 °C.

Government and politics

Aenopian Plushunia recognises devolved versions of both Aenopian and Plushunian legislature, with a Plushunian devolved parliament being led by an Aenopian-appointed Governor which holds absolute power. The Governor is additionally represented in Aenopia's Government Y Senedd as part of the Monarch's seat.

Executive branch

Governor

The head of state of Aenopian Plushunia is the Governor, who holds absolute power. This office is appointed by the President of Plushunia, Cristi. This position is currently held by Emperor of Aenopia Logan Ross and has been since the region's foundation in 4 August 2019.

Culture

Aenopian Plushunia enjoys a fairly basic culture which is primaryily based around Plushunian and Aenopian culture, the latter which follows Western Culture due to its geographical location in the world and subsequently, its population. Some Christian holidays which have become embedded into Western society (Christmas, Easter, ect.) are recognized by the population as National Holidays and as a result, celebrated. These may include Aenopian features (such as adopting the Welsh Language as its primary language) and Plushunian features (such as recognising Plush toys as citizens) and sometimes even features prominent in both societies (e.g. recognising Bobism as a state religion and National Holidays from both nations)

Languages

English is the most commonly spoken language in Aenopian Plushunia due to its Geographic location and is known and used daily by the entirety of the population. English is the only language used for government business, although some Welsh is rarely used for more ceremonial occasions. The overseas territory also recognises Welsh as a state language due to the local Aenopian influences. Romanian is also recognised as the 3rd state language of the territory on behalf of Plushunia.

Religion

Aenopian Plushunia is a mostly Atheism-based nation, however recognises a small religion called Bobism as its State Religion. This is mostly thanks to the influence of Plushunia and Aenopia which both recognise it as a state religion. This follows Bob the late fish of Alex Halbesleben (the former Emperor of Qaflana and Governor of Ogel), for which during its life was known to have eaten rocks and had regular seizures. Bobism initially evolved from a meme in the Organisation of Active Micronations (2019) which initially attempted to make Bobism the official Religion of the Organisation.
