The National Union of Cubia, commonly called Cubia, is a country that was created from UK Prime Minister's Boris Johnson's response to the 2019-20 coronavirus pandemic. It is meant as a way to prevent the virus from reaching its founder and only citizen. It is most likely described as a light secessionist micronation.

Etymology

Cubia's name comes from the fact that its founder copied and pasted the Cube Wikipedia page recently.

History

In the mid-2010s, GLL decided to create a citizenship form for a country called the Kingdom of the Nose. This citizenship form was never printed, but it was most likely replaced when GLL's computer was replaced, leaving no evidence but a simple memory.

Independence

In 2020, an independence referendum was held which said yes by an overwhelming majority of 100%. On March 25, Cubia was declared an independent nation in its transitional period, which ended on April 10, 2020 with the formation of the first Cube Council. In June 2020, Cubia entered a state of partial inactivity, but this was ended in the middle of July 2020.

Polarisation era

In September 2020, the Cubian National Party, was formed, and the Democratic Party of Cubia was formed in response. This led to the first proper two-party system in Cubian politics.

Politics and government

Cubia has a unique political system in which the head of state, the Cubelord, takes a seat in the Parliament. Cubia has several political parties, 3 of which take representation in the unicameral legislature, the Cube Council. Cubia also has local legislatures which have no bearing on the national government in Cubia Gardens.

Law and order

Cubia's judicial system relies on that of the UK. However, there are plans to create, a supreme court and de jure police force, called the Supreme Court of Cubia and the National Police of Cubia respectively.
