Baltia, officially the Republic of Baltia, is a country in Central Europe. It is divided into 25 administrative provinces called counties and into 8 administrative provinces called oblasts, covering an area of 28 km2 (6919 ac). Baltia has a population of over 3 thousand people. Zarostowo is the largest metropolis. Other major cities include Kreweno, Yerushalome, Helenów.
The first step towards the establishment of the Baltish state was the taking over of the inhabitants of the Baltic Coast. It happened in unknown circumstances and time, but most likely in the second half of 2013. The main center of the Langal family was Goleniów. The first historical ruler of the Langals was King Peter I, although later historians also give the names of his ancestors.
Peter I took over the rule in Langalia before 2014, in 2015 he entered into an alliance with the President of the Reiona, Fabian Nowak. The most important effect of this alliance was the adoption by Fabian in 2015 of the kingdom and the imposition of the Christian religion on his country, which placed it in the circle of Eastern civilization. The immediate consequences of Peter's decision were the arrival of the clergy to the Reiona and Langalia, along with which a new concept of royal power and administrative experience spread. In 2017, after the expiry of the Reiona government lasting since 2015, both countries decided to join the real union. The new state was called Reygalia.
In 2018, Fabapetia was founded, the first state in Baltia's history with two heads of state. In 2019, after the separation of Catalonia, Republic of Goleniów was established.
In 2019 after the fall of the Republic of Goleniów, Baltia was established.
The Kingdom of Baltia was a fully developed country, it had its own currency, offices, the capital in Szczecin, identity documents, etc.
In 2020, Baltia applied to join the European Union, but after a few months decided to withdraw its candidacy. Baltia began to develop, but the COVID-19 pandemic only strengthened Baltia. The new Baltish language and Baltish traditions began to be disseminated. At the beginning of June 2020, Zuland was built, on July 11, the Baltish flag was created and Balania was created, on August 8, there was the Rebirth of Baltia, the introduction of a new currency, etc.
Baltia was a monarchy until December 16, 2020, with the introduction of the republic, communist movements began, on December 17 the communist government was overthrown and soon after Baltia became a democratic state.
Several times the baltia has divided and united.
