Baltia (also known as the Baltian Sector or Baltian States) is an area which contains the micronations of Cheslovia, Malokaz, Ud Mahazar. The name of the area is to be used in a way similarly to which the names "Balkan" or "Baltic" is used, for example, one could say The Balkan States instead of Serbia, Bulgaria or Croatia etc. Baltia is an area enclosed between three main highways (including one motorway): A34, A40 and the M40. Until the 27th June 2009, Baltian micronations were unaware of the existence of other "Sectors".

Nations

The United Kingdom

The United Kingdom is almost always not associated with Baltia due to differing cultures, Baltian culture is heavily influenced by eastern European cultures whereas English culture is one of many western European cultures. The UK also has difering political ideologies compared to Baltian nations.

Past nations

Baltia has been home to many past micronations, here are the main micronations:

  • The Empire of Zagoria (circa. June 2006 - 25th December 2006)

Geography

Baltia is located between the M40, A34 and A40, there are two main rivers in Baltia the Talimaa river and the Volgov river, the Volgov is a river that branches off the Talimaa. North of both the Talimaa and Volgov rivers is the area called Vyach but also known as "Gryushi Mnoga Baltiya", Cheslovian for "Near Much/Main Baltia". To the east of Talimaa river is "Kluyvliya Baltiya", Izkargom for "Little Baltiya" and finally the main area of Baltia called "Mnoga Baltiya", Cheslovian for "Much/Main Baltia". Northern baltia must not be confused with Vyach, Northern Baltia is defined by political division as of January 1st 2009, although Northern Baltia is located in Vyach. The landscape of Baltia has been given "Baltian names", names that sound Slavic/Russian. For example, the Talimaa river is known in England as the Cherwell river, but in Baltia it is known as Talimaa etc.

Greater Baltia lies towards the east of Baltia, it is not generally considered to be part of Baltia.

Symbols

Baltia has only two main symbols, the "Baltian Zigzag" and the flag of Baltia (the flag of the BCSA is not considered a symbol of Baltia, as it represents an organisation, not the area).

The Baltian Zigzag

The Baltian zigzag gradually emerged as a symbol of Baltia during 2008, it is not known why or how the zigzag was chosen, and there are various meaning as to what it represents, including:

  • The zigzag represents the unrecognised nations of Baltia (a reference to the unrecognised nation of Nagorno-Karabakh)
  • The zigzag points to western Europe, towards other Russian/Slavic style nations which are not situated in Eastern Europe (eg. Nemkhavia)
  • The zigzag represents the Cheslovian territories not situated inside Baltia (many of them are situated west, the same direction as the zigzag points)

There is no official meaning to the zigzag.
