Etymology

The name Zephyryila is derived from the Zephyrus, the Greek god of the west winds. While the name is not an offical word, the countries name is defined as: A west wind of knowledge, freedom and hope. The name was officially adapted in March of 1977. The patron saint was also selected based on the name Zephyr for the Catholic population.

History

Zephyrila was inspired by the Principality of Sealand founded in 1976. H.R.H Montgomery Gauger gathered a small group of people (what we know today as the Framers) in a small lake house in Lake Kiowa, Texas to found a new nation that would claim areas in Texas, New York and California. The Framers' voted on preliminary acts 1001 through 1008 which provided necessary framework to found the nation. The nation went dormant upon the death of Montgomery Gauger in the 1990's. However, upon finding documents of the early nation, H.R.H. Jordan Gauger took necessary action and seized control and re-established the nation to the world.

Government

Zephyrila is a Democratic Monarchy, which is a mix of a Representative Democratic- Republic, and Absolute Monarchy, which means the People elect a Prime Minister who makes the decisions along with the King. The Prime Minister is head of the Zephyrian Royal Congress, a Unicameral House of elected Representatives. However, the Prime Minister is considered second in the decision making process in Zephyrila. The Zephyrian Royal Senate is made up of 20 elected Representatives and the is headed by the Prime Minister. The ZRS creates and votes on the nations laws for approval by the Monarch.
