Caldonia, is a vassal state of the Sonoran Empire. Caldonia joined Shaoshan as a governorate on August 26th, 2015. It was governed as a republic, in theory, but in practice was a one man benevolent autocracy with the Premier as its executive and vested with state executive powers. The President of Shaoshan held a very limited and ceremonial role and thus had no real power but to enforce Shaoshanian law in the state, however, the Premeir exercised the state's law and had the power to challenge federal law in the region. Caldonia was granted federated state status on September 23, 2015. It was disestablished as a state in 2016 and for nearly a year was ceded back to the United States. The territory that once encompassed the old town of Caldonia still is part of the United States. In February 2017, the state was reestablished as a duchy under the Sonoran Empire, however, the new Town of Caldonia has moved further a mile southeast.
Caldonia was established on August 26, 2015 as an expansionist enclave to the Shaoshanian state. It served as a federated city-state until its dissolution in mid 2016. It was reestablished as a vassal of the Sonoran Empire in February 2017.
Government and politics
Caldonia is governed as a duchy and is a de facto autocratic state, with its one lone citizen representing it as state executive. It has the same rights of a state, however, with its head of government being the Governor who operates the functions of the states and exercises the powers of a state executive and can challenge federal law in Caldonia. The Emperor of Sonora exercises federal authority and the Governor exercising state authority, as well as represents the state in the Imperial Council. Sonora provides defense in the form of the Defense Force and the Governor is the commander-in-chief of the state paramilitary.
While only one citizen resides in the state who identifies as atheist, freedom of religion is heavily enforced.
