The Republic of Caelesta (Caelestan: Републкa Каелестеанэ), or just Caelesta is a self-declared landlocked country with little to no recognition located in Eastern Europe. It shares a border with Romania in the Western and Central Provinces and a border with the Republic of Moldova in the Eastern Provinces. The total area of the country used to stand at 6.627 square kilometers (2.559 square miles), but after the May 2021 Territorial Shifts, the new territory of Caelesta (Excluding the "DF"CZ) stands at 2.958 square kilometers (1.142 square miles), which is significantly smaller, the whole territory combined being smaller than the old Province of Ravansa's territory. The population of the country currently stands at 13 people, the most recent census regarding population being taken on the 22nd of May 2021. The capital of the country used to be located in the District of Corindalesti, which later got merged with Astravenesti Munincipality in the Province of Corindalesti, the new capital of the country becoming the "DF"CZ. The capital's population currently stands at 1 person, which is the Leader herself.

The country was founded on the date of the 28th of February 2021 by Connie Julie, the current leader of the country. The official and most used currency is the Romanian Leu (RON). The two recognized languages in the country are the English, which is the most spoken language in the country, and the Caelestan language. Currently, the biggest ethnic group of the country is Romanians, standing at 38.46% currently.

The country is formed out of 3 provinces: Corindalesti Province, Vatra Province, and Ravansa Province.

Citing from the "Important Information" page on the Caelestan Government Website: "Caelesta is a micronation founded by an ambitious transgender teenager from Botosani who wishes to build a community that promotes good values, such as equality between all people."

Etymology

The country's original name pre-foundation was the Republic of Liberta, later being changed to the Republic of Caelesta to avoid conflicts with the existing Liberta micronation.

Caelesta comes from the Latin word caelestis, meaning heavenly (lit. of the sky, from caelum + genitive ending).

History

Pre-founding era (31st December 2020 - 28th of February 2021)

Celesta, before its founding on the 28th of February, used to be called the Republic of Liberta, but it was changed to avoid conflicts with the already existing Liberta micronation. Even earlier than that, the Republic was only formed out of the territories currently in the region of the Province of Corindalesti, only later would the country annex the territories in the nowadays Vatra Province and Ravansa.

Post-Founding era (28th of February - Present Day)

After it's founding, Caelesta has already established, on the dates of the 7th and 8th of March 2021, with the Pinangese Republic and the Snagovian Federal Republic, mutual recognition treaties. It has also had a redesign in it's National Flag and Coat of Arms. The first occurrence of Caelesta dropping their recognition on another nation happend on the 21st of March 2021, when the Leader announced that Caelesta wouldn't recognize Carpatia anymore.

On the 30th of March 2021, Caelesta has started officially forming it's own Government, made out of Provincial Presidents and the Leader.

On the 1st of May 2021, Caelesta has shifted it's territory in hopes of it avoiding areas inhabited by people who arent aware of the country.

Land Claims

Sign upon leaving Caelesta's "De Facto" Control Zone, after the information on Caelesta's Land Claims has been published (and before the 1st of May 2021), Leader's Room, District of Corindalesti. The sign, after the 1st of May 2021, has been replaced.

The Caelestan Leader, Connie Julie, has published a page on the Government's website, on the date of the 10th of March 2021, stating that the claims of Caelesta are completely titular, and that the Government of Caelesta holds no de facto power over them, but that they may be considered part of the Nation, in hopes of not violating the points of the Wrythe Convention and the Edgbaston Convention. The Leader has also specified that she will try to make the country violate no points that the Wrythe and Edgbaston Conventions uphold in hopes of signing them in the future.

On the 1st of May 2021, Caelesta has shifted it's territories which the Leader hopes is enough for the country to be eligible to sign the Conventions mentioned above.

The "De Facto" Control Zone ("DF"CZ)

The Caelestan "DF"CZ was a small area within the Capital of Caelesta, the District of Corindalesti, where the Caelestan Authorities have almost full control, with the rest of the country being considered a "De Jure" Control Zone or "DJ"CZ. After the May 2021 Territorial Shifts, the "DF"CZ has become the new Capital of the Country.
