Currvania, officially The Currvanian Empire or The Empire of Currvania, (Imperium Currvaniæ (Latin) Kaiserreich Currvanien (German) Imperio Currvania (Spanish) 컬바니아 제국 (Korean)) is a micronation founded by Christopher Curry informally in early 2018 and officially in 2019. It is located in the US States of Florida and Georgia. It has a population of ~30 and a legislature of 5 people. It is a Constitutional Monarchy with Christopher being stylized as Christopher I Augustus as the emperor. The emperor must follow the constitution and any other laws passed by himself, the High Council, and previous emperors. He can pass executive orders and also approve any laws that the council brings forward. A 3/5 vote is required to pass laws, a simple majority, though some laws may be so serious as to require a unanimous vote.
The nation is currently undergoing constitutional changes. A Constitutional Committee is being formed to rewrite and revise the original constitution. Many parts of the Constitution are no longer in use or are not able to be enforced so the government is going to create the Second Constitution of The Empire of Currvania. The constitution is planned to be officially ratified on October 11 2020, the one year anniversary of the ratification of the original constitution.

The name Currvania and also its predecessor Curryea both come from the Scottish/Irish surname Curry. The Emperor named the nation he founded after himself, Christopher Curry. Originally, the entire surname was incorporated and the nation was called Curryea however, that sounds like Korea and the government did not want to cause confusion so they came up with Currvania. This combined the Curr" from Curry and the suffix Sylvania meaning woodland was shortened to vania for ease of pronunciation
The Currvanian Empire also stylized as "The Empire of Currvania" is a micronation in the southern United States. The idea of "Currvania" or its original name "Curryea" had existed for several years before the provisional government was put into place. The name was changed to Currvania before the Constitution was ratified. A provisional government was put in place Valentines Day of 2019(527 local calendar), though some provisional governments had been formed earlier such as the establishment of the Currvanian-Rogerian empire in October 2018 which established a diarchy to lead the nation. The first official government came to be in early 2018 where the nation was established as "The Imperial Provinces of Currvania",this proto constitution was ratified April 10 2018. The current constitution was passed on October 11, 2019 and it established The Currvanian Empire properly for the first time. The 20 person legislature was rather large for a small nation and it became hard to get even a quorum together to pass laws. So on 19 December 2019 (3 Tredecemus 527 PMN in the local calendar) the Grand Council was dissolved and replaced with the High Council, made up of five members instead of twenty. This was passed as the last act of the Grand Council unanimously and the Supreme Court approved it.
Main Article: Military of Currvania
The Currvanian Military is made up of the Imperial Army and the Imperial Navy. The Imperial Navy is made up of a small sailboat and a canoe. As of 2020 (528 PMN) there are no active duty personnel in the Military only the SCOM and the Emperor who heads the Armed Forces Council.
The provisional government had a Coast Guard, Air Force, Space Force, Marine Corps, and Medical Corps added to the military branches but they were ultimately removed in favor of a simplified system since Currvania does not have a large population. Historically, there have been commanders of some of these branches during the pre-constitutional era. It was not prudent to have more branches than we were equipped for especially branches that required craft we had little to no access to. We had no materials to fly anything or launch anything into space militarily. There is a space program, formally the Imperial Administration for Space and Celestial Bodies, which will launch anything into space if we have the opportunity and research such endeavors but it was not wise to have a military branch for something not obtainable as of yet.
The Supreme Commander of The Military, is in charge of the entire military. The Commander General/Admiral of either the Army of the Navy, is in charge of their respective branch. This is a position appointed by the Emperor and High Council. The promotion of lesser ranks falls to the Commander General/Admiral and their subordinates. A chart with the list of all ranks in the military is attached here. The ranks are simplified from other nations due to our small size we do not need as many positions. If our military grows enough we might implement new positions.
Politics and Government
Main Article: Government of Currvania
The Office of The Emperor is in charge of the Nation. It is made up of the Emperor and several subordinate departments that report directly to him instead of the ministries of the High Council. All laws passed are signed by him so sometimes they are marked from The Office of The Emperor.
Before the first constitution was ratified, the Currvanian Empire was a diarchy with two emperors. Now it is a monarchy so only Christopher is Emperor now. Laine I was made the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Relations until the High Council was reshuffled.

So far, the Currvanian Empire has no foreign relations, the Emperor and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Relations work together on such matters. All treaties, negotiations, or relations would go through either of these individuals.
The Currvanian Empire is divided into a Kingdom, and a State which are subdivided into 2 Duchies, a County, and a Principality in addition to the capital. The Duke/Duchess, Count/Countess, and Prince/Princess are appointed by the Emperor or High Council. The divisions of the Currvanian Empire are the following: The Duchy of Curryea and the Principality of New Macedonia make up the Kingdom of New Jamestowne while The Duchy of Port Galicia and the County of Otterbein make up the State of new Thrace. The capital of New Alexandria is separate from these other divisions and is directly administered by the Emperor. The Property Division and Military Act officially laid out these provinces. The Prince/Princess of Macedonia is a title that goes to the Imperial heir when they are invested as such.

Constitution and Law
The Currvanian Empire was officially founded when the constitution officially was ratified on 11 October, 2019. It lays out the basic law of Currvania and anything changing it has to be considered seriously. The text of any laws in the public domain and the Constitution itself will be linked here. This includes executive orders and any other acts passed by the High Council or when it was the Grand Council.

Calendar of Currvania
The Currvanian Calendar was established by Imperial Executive Order III. The year system is based off of the "discovery" of the americas with 1492 used as year 1 so that 2020 would be 528 PMN which means post mundus novus or after new world any years before 1492 would use ante mundus novus or before new world (AMN). The calendar uses 5 day weeks and has 13 months. Due to the 5 day week, every month will be a multiple of 5. This prevents starting a new month in the middle of a week. 10/13 months have 30 days, 2/13 months made of 25 days, and an additional month made of 15 days. The order of months descends in days so that the beginning of the year starts with 30 day months then goes to 25 day months and ends with a 15 day month. The names of the months are as follows in order: Natalia, Augusta, Tertia, Curryea, Quinquila, Alexandria, Neptunus, Minerva, Iovis, Decemus, Undecemus, Duodecemus, Tredecemus. The names of the days are as follows in order: Solis Dies, Lunae Dies, Iuno Dies, Ceres Dies, Vesta Dies. The calendar is not in widespread use as of yet and it follows very closely to the Gregorian calendar for the first few months.
