Ceticilia's website


The Ceticilian Republic (formerly Republic [of] Ceticilia and Kingdom of Ceticilia) is a micronation based inside of Germany and the United States of America and was conceptualized as early as 2014. It was divided into two provinces, Sprelbuerg and Sheeplandia, the latter split from Ceticilia on 2018-05-08. It was founded on 2016-03-29 as the Republic of Ceticilia, however a few months would pass until the first constitution was officially ratified. Ceticilia is a relatively young nation and therefore has only a moderate amount of significant history.

History

2016

Founding

The nation was founded by four people namely Jessica S., Lilian Rotfels, Jordan Lord and Mia T. on the founding day on 2016-03-29 the first President - Lilian Rotfels - was elected. In its pre-constitutional days many names were proposed, one of which was "Liberalia" which was part of its name for as long as the constitution was not yet ratified as "Federation Ceticilia-Liberalia". The population stood at four for about a month after which two new people joined Ceticilia. Not long after creation of the nation political parties started to form, the oldest being the Progressive Party of Ceticilia (Social-Democratic), the second oldest being the Sparkle Party (Environmentalist). Both of these parties are defunct nowadays.

Constitution

With the introduction of a constitution many things were improved, law would be easier to maintain and new positions such as Chief Justice of Ceticilia have been created. The constitution has been criticized as being too vague however and calls began soon to reform the constitution that was currently in place. Lilian Rotfels, the current president in power fulfilled his one year term that was constitutionally set, there has been no revote after the introduction of the constitution. Population Towards the end of 2016 Ceticilia witnessed a massive increase of citizens, DANC-leaders Matthew Comyn, Nathan Deyak and Álvaro Barredo joined the nation nearing the end of 2016. The population at the end of 2016 consisted of 17 persons.

First Republic

Political Tensions and Election

At the beginning of 2017 political tensions rose massively: the Geolibertarian Party and the Progressive Party kept verbally fighting until the election and drama ensued. The Progressive Party was the party in power at the time and the Geolibertarian Party titled itself "the opposition". In March of 2017 the second Ceticilian election was held, Lilian Rotfels and Mia T. tied in this election, though the win was given to Mia T. for having the most first votes of all candidates partaking in this election, after this election tensions didn't come to a halt, Mia T.'s term was one month long; after he was found guilty of infiltrating the Geolibertarian Party he was immediately impeached for treason against the constitution.

Monarchy

On 2017-07-27 a constitutional referendum was held to override the old constitution in favor of the constitution of the Kingdom of Ceticilia. The vote ended 6-0 for the constitution making it approved by 100% of the voting population. The constitution instated new governmental institutions: the Senate and the House of Representatives however those have been joined together to form The Parliament of Ceticilia.

Government

Ceticilia's parliament was elected partially by the people and appointed by the king, the elected part of the Parliament was equivalent to one fourth of the population. The Parliament is still voted on every three months. The appointed part (also known as "Senate") was the power to appoint ministries. The first makeup of the Parliament was as follows:

Human Rights

Gender equality

The Ceticilian state does not recognize gender and avoids the use of "he" and "she" in the constitution, this couldn't be respected universally in some occasions, though. All humans are created equal before Ceticilian law.
