The Most Serene Republic of Yusienia (Chinese: 雨仙最尊貴共和國; IPA: /y˥˩ ɕjɛn˥˥ tsweɪ˥˩ tsuən˥˥ kweɪ˥˩ kʊŋ˥˩ xɤ˧˥ kuɔ˧˥/), formerly named as Republic of Amazonia, is a micronation in Southern Europe, claimed to be an independent sovereign state and a separatist movement. Vân Tinh Nghiên Tuyt, a non-binary micronationalist, founded the country in December 2020. Amazonia was the name given to the nation when it was founded, with Amazonis Planitia on Mars as its principal region. Amazonia handed its land to the earth in December 2021 and eventually became a country on the planet. As a result, the country's name was altered to Yuhsienia in February 2022, and later to Yusienia according to phonetics.

Yusienia is a tiny landlocked nation with an area of 1556 square kilometres. Yusienia's territory lies north-east of Athens, Greece's capital, and it has no permanent population; Yusienia's citizens live on the territory of other macronations.

The country is a unitary autocratic republic controlled by the princess of Yusienia, who also acts as the head of government.

Yusienia's current territory claims a part of Asia Minor including Smyrna and Ephesus, the city and suburbs of Trabzon, and many islands, the Aegadian Islands, Chios, Lesbos, and Filfla, etc. , but has no ability to directly control these territories.

The official time in Yusienia is based on the Prague Astronomical Clock, and there is no daylight saving time, so it is an hour or two ahead of the local Greek time zone.

Etymology

The name "Yusienia" comes from the Mandarin word "雨仙" for "rain fairy" or "fairy of the rain".

History

Early History

Yusienia folklore links the establishment of Yusienia to the Triton in Greek mythology. According to offical history books of Amazonia, Founder of Amazonia Vân Tinh Nghiên Tuyết is a cornflower fairy, one of the twenty flower fairies of the garden. In June 2020, Guo Wengui established New Federal State of China(designated as a terrorist group by Amazonia), this inspired Tuyết to build a micronation, and she set about to find a territory. In December, Tuyết turned to finding territory on Mars, Amazonis Planitia was soon chosen as the territory of the micronation.

Amazonia and the first autocracy (December 2020 - January 2022)

flag of Stadt Schleswig 2.0

For establishing a country, Tuyết formed a secret society "Stadt Schleswig 2.0" on 28 December 2020, this society became the precursor to the nowadays Yuhsienia state. Very few relics and records remain of this secret society, making the early history of Yuhsienia confusing. Then the society unilaterally declared independence from Federated States of Martian Olympus under the name "Amazonistan", with Vân Tinh as head of state. The same day, the nation established diplomatic relations with the Republic of Jŭmina and Urbo de Sophia. The name "Republic of Amazonia" was chosen on 3 January 2021.

The political system in the early days of Amazonia was almost absolute monarchy. As for why the country was not named a kingdom, Tuyết said "it is too tiring to hold a coronation ceremony."

On 5 March 2021, Tuyết established a cabinet with three ministries: the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Treasury and the Ministry of National Defense. Tuyết appointed Hilja-Sinikka Iltanen as Minister of Treasury, and Hemerocalli Crystalli, her original character, as Minister of Foreign Affairs.

Tuyết started to draft the Constitution of Amazonia on 10 March 2021, she organised a Constituent Assembly, and the Kelowna Draft was released on 14 May. However, after the release of the draft, Tuyết declared that a single written constitution that was difficult to change was not suitable for Amazonia. On June 28, Vân Tinh announced the end of the constitutional process and that the Constituent Assembly was to be dissolved. The declaration of independence of Amazonia was signed on 9 August 2021, which declared that the Republic of Amazonia was an independent sovereign state.

After that, the government consolidated its rule, and the President disbanded the National Assembly and converted it into the Great Althing as a new legislature council, the president and cabinet members are ex-officio members of it.
On 10 September,Vân Tinh announced the establishment of the Territory of Amazonistan, which is all the Martian territory of Amazonia, and designated it as the new legal capital, but the government is still based in cyber territory of Picafloria for a while until December, then the executive center moved to Nea Emesa.

The Yusien nation was created in late 2021, the national symbol was identified, and these innovations were called Amazonian national awakening, also known as the first Yusienian national awakening. The leaders of this national awakening are Victor, Sophia Swan, Hilja Illtanen and others. The first Yusienian national awakening marked the birth of the Yusienian nation.

Amazonia acceded the Wrythe Convention on 28 October.

The Nea Emesa night assault, an expansionist invasion, was operated by Amazonia in Deccember 2021 with the goal of occupying a territory on earth. The occupied territory was named Nea Emesa, and became the new capital city and cultural and political center in 12 December 2021. On 28 December, Amazonia celebrated it's first national anniversary.

Constitutional oligarchy (January 2022 - April 2022)

President Tuyết write a new constitution in December 2021, This constitution abolished the personalist dictatorship and introduced a oligarchic system, it marks the end of the Amazonia's first autocratic era and the beginning of the oligarchic era. The new constitution established two main government agencies, the Secretariate and the Censorate. The Secretariate assists the President, similar to a Cabinet, while the Censorate does monitoring, auditing, investigation, impeachment, inspection, and intelligence. The Princess is the head of state and has no term limit. The Signoria controls most of the power, therefore, it can be regarded as an oligarchy, but government rule was more ceremonial, so for political scientists the political system of Yusienia could be Anarchy. The Grand Chancellor was the leader of the Signoria. There is a National Assembly, the Princess and cabinet were ex-officio members, other seats were nominated by the Princess or elected. The Signoria was the most important central government agency of Yusienia, controlled executive power, legislative power and part of judicial power. The Princess had the power to decide national affairs, but the promulgation of new laws and the revision of the constitution all required the vote of the Signoria. The Censorate was the main supervisory, auditory and security agency, holds the power of supervision, inspection, investigation, and intelligence work. The National Assembly was advocacy and does not hold legislative power but elects the next president after the current president abdicates. Any legal party member was a member of the National Assembly.

Amazonia signed the Augusta Accord on 18 January 2022. At the beginning of 2022, a series of cultural reforms have been carried out. An executive order was issued on 7 February 2022, announcing that the country's name would be changed to "Yuhsienia". Following Tuyết's research on phonetics, the name eventually became "Yusienia". On 3 March, a major constitutional amendment was unanimously passed by the Signoria. This amendment changed the title of the head of state from "President" to "Princess", although the title "President" is still used informally. In addition, this constitutional amendment also changed the first verse of the national anthem and the national emblem, making the country more in line with the image of a terran country. On 15 April, the Mohist Party was formed, de facto replacing the Yusienian National Progressive Democratic Socialist Revolutionary Action Congress for Prosperity and Justice as the ruling party.

The second autocracy (April 2022 -)

On 29 Apirl 2022, The princess abolished the constitution and took all legislative, executive and judicial powers. She began rule by decree, strengthening centralization and dictatorship. At this time, government officials lost their power, taking empty pay, and the princess spent most of her working time thinking about her new name and designing Yusienia's new flag. She issued many oral and non-written decrees, such as changing the time zone, changing the metric unit of weight and volume to apothecaries' system, and changing the Celsius scale to the Réaumur scale. The princess believe she was greater than Augustus, she renamed August to one of her first names, Camille, and renamed October, November and December to Neutrality, Hexasophy and Liberty. A cultural movement started in May called second Yusienian national awakening. Unlike the First Yusienian national awakening which involved many people, politicians and artists, this national awakening was carried out by the princess alone. The second Yusienian national awakening took the spear of Athena, the symbol of Pallas, as the symbol of Yusienian people, changed the national flag, and determined the national colors and more national symbols. This national awakening enriched Yusienian culture.
