The Democratic People's Republic of Sholand is a micronation founded on 16 August 2017. It was dissolved into the CCC Land on that same day. However, it re-declared independence a day later. It is not known if this country is a joke. The size of its territorial claims are unknown.
The Etymology of the Democratic People's Republic of Sholand comes from the word "Sho" the Japanese name of the founder, Nicholas Hayes.
Original inspiration for the idea came from an IT project in school. The founder had heard of Micronationalism and made a website for the fictional micronation of the "The High Sovereign of the Democratic Socialist People's Republic of eighty-one oak street" in an attempt to satirise micronationalism. A few years later, the founder revisited the idea by making it a reality but instead decided to make it more believable by making the "Democratic People's Republic of Sholand". Though he considered this more credible than his fictional state, it is unclear how seriously he is taking his micronation.
As a member of the Coo Cluck Clan he decided to propose that his nation tied in with the Coo Cluck Clan religion and to make it part of the Coo Cluck Clan Land. Shortly after declaring independence it merged with The earl of the beetroot kingdom's Winter and Summer retreat's clock presents the land of the very week but good fruiting redcurrant bush's part time fruit picker's bedroom to form Coo Cluck Clan Land.
The next day at 15:09 Sholand decided to have an amicable split from Coo Cluck Clan land, permanently forming an independent nation.
Government and politics
The head of state of Sholand is the Chicken Sandwich. The Chicken Sandwich was a sandwich thrown onto a yard, and has been removed, making Sholand a Necrocracy, where the head of state is dead, similar to North Korea. The head of Government is the Shogun, who has absolute power over his country, making him the dictator.
Sholand is officially a socialist country, although this is mainly cultural, as Sholand lacks a developed economic system, meaning that it is hard to give a label to the economy. Also, only one citizen resides in Sholand, meaning that there is no developed welfare system. Due to its socialist ideology, it has supported other socialist and left-wing movements, notably Proletistan and a trade union in the British Empire.

There was tension between the DPRS and the CCC Land, which the DPRS seceded from. The CCC Land did not recognise this secession at first, however with the promise of them controlling the state religion, the secession was recognised.
