Etymology

The name Aggrawal originated when the soon to be King Swapnil Aggrawal claimed that all names were a form of the common surname Aggrawal. Soon, he began to be referred to as Aggrawal, and, after being proclaimed king, the name became associated with the crown.

Also, in the Aggarj language, Aggraval means "ruler of the plain."

History

Before Kingdom

The early history of the Aggrawal is poorly recorded, so many dates have been lost to memory and few details still remain.

Starting in 2012, several attempts were made by what now consists of the population of the Aggrawal to form a government. These governments, the oligarchies, proved highly unstable and ineffective.

The first notable one of these governments began in mid 2013 as an oligarchy ruled by a triumvirate. As a means of appeasement, this gradually became a quadriumvirate, then a quinqumvirate, and so on. Eventually, the rapid expansion of the oligarchy and squabbling between oligarchs led to its downfall. Spago, then a member of the ruling council, noted that despite the council's disdain for democracy, the council's rapid expansion meant that in practice, the oligarchy was a democracy.

The second notable government was formed in mid 2014. Although managed to avoid the previous government's rapid growth and bloat, the government still proved short lived and full of intra-governmental bickering. Not long later, the migration of many citizens led to its dissolution.

Nonetheless, this era saw the development of traditions and institutions that continue to influence the Aggrawal today, and it was in this era that the culture of the Aggrawal developed.

Reign of Swapnil Aggrawal

Later 2014 saw the arrival of new persons and a development of a neo-feudalist ideology. This culminated in the proclamation of S. Aggrawal as king in early 2015.

The coronation of Swapnil Aggrawal brought the Aggrawal into a personal union with the Regnum Nubiae.

The monarchy proved more stable than the previous governments, and also saw the development of a legal tradition.

Reign of Victor Aggrawal Veberus

On March 25th, 2015, S. Aggrawal abdicated. On the same day, the second, and the current king, then simply V. Veberus ascended the throne, adopting the regnal name V. Aggrawal Veberus.

Under his reign, the kingdom continued to expand gradually in population. However, the Regnum Nubiae, still ruled by King Swapnil, left its union with the Aggrawal.

Politics

The Aggrawal is an absolute elective monarchy, ruled by a king that acts as head of state and government. The king is tasked to oversee the execution of laws and may also issue new laws by royal decree; he is assisted by various ministers to whom he delegates power over certain fields. The workings of the government is regulated by an uncodified constitution.

Elections

Elections for a new king are held if a king abdicates, dies, or is otherwise rendered permanently incapable without having designated a heir. In an election, the Aggrawal's subjects or their delegates gather. When they believe a consensus has been reached, the gathered proclaim loyalty to the agreed upon candidate.

Government

The king is assisted by his ministers, who share the king's power to rule by edict in their won domains.

The chief minister of the king is currently the Surgeon-General, Theodoricus.

The king's courts are currently run by User:Faustus Sertorius Spago.

Domestic Policy

The current Aggrawal government is focused on the development of the Agger as the national currency.

Other policy goals are a standardization program, and the construction of the Aggrawal's first settlement.

Foreign Policy

The Aggrawal plays a mostly passive role in the affairs of distant micronations. Instead, its foreign policy concentrates on bringing nearby states formerly in union of the Aggrawal back into its fold, namely, the Alexandrian principality (not related to the Alexandrian Empire on Micras) and the Kingdom of Nubia and Pezantion.
