The Confederate States of Occitania was founded the on the 7th June, 2015. Following the creation of the micronation, a military council took control of the Confederation, with absolute authority. Later that month, on 27 June 2015, the council appointed Didier Montaudran as the President of Occitania, and worked with him to rewrite the constitution and put democratic reforms into place.
On the 20th July, 2015, after the Russian ruble (to which Occitania's own currency, also known as the ruble) was tied, President Montaudran removed the Ministers of Customs and Finances from office, ended use of the Occitan ruble and dissolved the central bank. Since then, the Occitan government has been seeking a micronation with which to form a currency union.
On the 6th August, 2015, the President Chkaya created a new Central Bank: Credit Occitan
The September 15 and 16, the country was shaken by a communist revolution and regime change. It's the end of the confederation.
The confederation is divided into four oblasts: Nassau Oblast, Transvaal Oblast, Romanov-Aragon 0blast and Oranje Oblast.
French and Spanish are the officials languages of the Confederation. Four other languages (English,Russian, Hebrew and Dutch) are also officially recognised by the country. The Occitan language has no official status, but is frequently used in Occitania.
