The Empire of Altannia Unita (Spanish: Imperio de Altannia Unita) is a parliamentary elective monarchy located primarily in the Iberian Peninsula, with overseas territories in the state of Michigan. Founded in 2011, Altannia has been constantly growing in size and population ever since, having, as of 2017, an estimated area of 10 square km and a population of 162 citizens.


The name Altannia is derived from the names of its two founders: Álvaro and Sebastián. The first known name for the State is "Altán" or "Altann", with varying spellings. After the Monarchy was established, the first accounts of "Altannia" appear, often stylized as "Aeltannia", "Aeltania" or "Altania", being the latter one the preferred spelling up until 2013, when the name of the nation was settled down as "Altannia". The archaic spelling can still be seen in the Great Seal of the Bureaucratic Congress, amongst others.


Foundation of Altannia

Following the general political turmoil of Spain in 2011, Álvaro Barredo and Sebastián Rodríguez decided to create a micronation, in order to further the understanding of political systems as a whole. A proto-Altannia was founded, with claims over parts of Colombia and northwestern Spain. The new State of Altann was declared a Republic, with Álvaro and Sebastián as its presidents. The nation was finally founded on November 9th, 2011, with the final acquisition of lands in Madrid, following the expedition of the newly appointed commander, Asier Santos, in the lands that would become the province of Archaicâltannia.

The small population of Altann steadily grew. Plans for issuing coins and notes started during this period. The Capital City was established in Altannia Magna, near the center of the claimed territories at the time, overseeing lesser settlements, nowadays located in Billiotare and Deussiema. However, governmental corruption started growing. The vast majority of Altannese citizens were being appointed as government officials, creating unsubstantial positions all across the State, whose demands paralyzed any governmental actions. On December 5th, 2011, Sebastián Rodríguez resigned as President of Altann.

First Monarchic Transition and the Altannese Diarchy.

Upon Sebastián's resignation, President Álvaro assumed full control of the Altannese Government, and as a means of centralization, proclaimed himself as King of Altannia, becoming Álvaro I. His reign went unopposed for just five days, after which, commander Asier Santos demanded land holdings, threatening with unilateral independence of his discovered territories unless Altannia complied to his demands.

Álvaro I accepted, and the Diarchy of Altannia was founded on December 10th, 2011. During this period, Altannia rapidly expanded eastward, reaching the full extent of the provinces of Plannies Septentrionalles and Meridionnalles. Adrián Santos, brother of king Asier I, became Ambassatore d'Altannia, a largely ceremonial office at first, that would gain importance as a neutral figure for Altannese politics as time went on. The Bureaucratic Congress of Altannia was founded in early 2012, mainly serving as a judiciary court. The first division in provinces was established in this period.

On April 28th, 2012, territorial disputes between kings Álvaro I and Asier I resulted in the latter being expelled from his office, ending, thus, the First Altannese Diarchy, and heading towards a period of unsettled power and deep instability.

Second Monarchic Transition

With the unexpected expulsion of king Asier I, the Altannese Diarchy suddenly had a power vacuum. The remainders of governmental corruption from the Republic ensured that this period became a scramble for power with no significant developments whatsoever. Juan I, former minister of Altann, was the first person to assume power after Asier, for a total of two days, after which he was styled Juan I "ei Saptatteo" (Juan I "the Brief"). On April 30th, Adrián Santos ascended to the throne, for a total of ten days. Following him, Sebastián Rodríguez came back to Altannia, claiming legitimacy to the Altannese Throne, and was crowned Sebastián I until May 23rd, when he resigned again. This actions gave him the title of Sebastián I "ei Pusilanimme" (Sebastián I "the Pusillanimous").

Following him, came the longest reigning king of the Transition, Carlos I, a government official during the Republic, who ruled from May 23rd to August 9th, when he was expelled from office. After a short day of interregnum, in which Blanca I, sister of Álvaro I, ruled, Josep Munill i Segarra, Altannese commander under whose command several expedition were conducted during the reign of Asier I, was crowned Josep I. His rule brought prosperity and new land holdings to Altannia, but on September 1st, Asier I came back to Altannia and convoked the Bureaucratic Congress on the terms of his legitimacy. Congress, due to the huge influence Adrián Santos had over it, ruled unanimously in favour of Asier's return to the throne, yet, Josep I refused to accept it. This event polarized the Altannese society and armies, giving rise to the Altannese Civil War.

Altannese Civil War

Upon Congress' resolution on Asier I's legitimacy over the throne, Josep Munill and his followers raised in arms all across northern Altannia. The quick development of the war resulted in an unprepared loyalist army, which could not hold over their territories, losing Billiotare, Deussiema and the capital city, Altannia Magna, within the first day of the conflict. The quick advance of Josepist troops came to a halt upon reaching the natural frontier of Grantto Çarçalle, which quickly became the dividing line between the two factions.

The loyalist government moved to Nesso des Fogers, and hastily annexed the territories of Reggionne des Lacs and Terra Phertille, south to the former land holdings of Altannia. On September 2nd, the war seemed to have reached a stalemate, but the day afterwards, under the command of Asier I, loyalist troops trespassed Grantto Çarçalle, and managed to surround Billiotare, coming into loyalist control. The momentum gained by Asier's troops, as well as the surprise factor to Josep's army, was enough for an ensured loyalist victory, who gained control of Deusiemma quickly after.

On September 3rd, 2012, after a short, yet decisive conflict for Altannese history, Josep surrendered, ending the Altannese Civil War.

New Diarchy of Altannia

After the Civil War, Asier I was re-established as King of Altannia, and the Altannese State was strengthened. New explorations were conducted, moving the easternmost frontier of Altannia to Quonca di Drianne and Cap d'Incogna. In order to avoid further internal conflicts between the two kings, the system of commendettimentos was created, dividing the Altannese territory into four.

Altannia Occidentalle came under the control of Álvaro I, crowned King of Western Altannia; Altannia Urientalle came under the control of Asier I, crowned King of Eastern Altannia; Altannia Nûtralle was given to the Ambassatore, Adrián Santos, to maintain strategic and historically important territories of Altannia devoid of territorial-infused politics; and Altannia Dualle, introduced later, was established as a Western-Eastern condominium, to settle disagreements on the extent of each commendettimento.

The capital city was moved to Billiotare, and development efforts were started in the settlement, which would become the hub for Altannese transportation and government meetings. Altannese politics were divided between Western and Eastern Altannia, to avoid centralization of power by any given king. Eastern Altannia would control Altannese military policies, with its king being the Commander-in-Chief of all of Altannia; while Western Altannia would control Congress, as well as any bureaucratic aspects of Altannia.

On December 10th, 2013, Josep Munill was caught vandalizing Ei Nesso des Fogers and burning Altannese documents by Adrián and Asier Santos. The conflict escalated until, five days after, the Altannese Armies took over the territories controlled by Josep, and annexed them to Altannia. This conflict was called, in Altannese historiography, the Second Civil War, despite not being a civil war proper.

Kingdom of Altannia Unita and Decrees of Archaicomaioreo

Flag of Altannia Unita (2013-2015).
After the Second Civil War, Altannia started working heavily on expanding its territories, as well as on making a corpus of law, since up to that point, Altannese legislation had been fuzzy and, overall, non-effective. On December 16th, 2013, Archaicomaioreo was annexed to Altannia. The capital city was moved there, with the construction of the first governmental building of Altannia, and the Decrees of Archaicomaioreo were signed by Asier I, Álvaro I and Adrián Santos, becoming the first Altannese constitution.

During December of 2013, with the annexation of former Josepist territories, Archaicomaioreo, and Cannaiea, which was added after an expedition led by Asier I, in an effort to further expand the easternmost frontier, Altannia's territory more than doubled, and a new influx of citizens started entering Altannia.

An official division in provinces was established in the Constitution, new roles were given to the Ambassatore, and lower delegates were established, in the form of the Prime Minister, office occupied in first instance by Irene Pichardo, who became the first woman to ever have a lasting government position in Altannia; and of the Counselor of War and Comprehension, occupied in first instance by Guillermo García. These two offices depended, respectively, on Western and Eastern Altannia, preserving the power equilibrium between both crowns.

The Decrees of Archaicomaioreo, though lost to history in their original form, constituted the basis for Altannia's legislation and institutions.

On August 28th, 2014, an expedition conducted by the Ambassatore confirmed the trespassing of strangers into Altannese territory, who had taken over Billiotare and Nesso des Fogers. After further investigation, it came to Altannese knowledge that there were two distinct factions residing in Altannia: The Oscarids and Iuanines, as notified by Adrián Santos. The Altannese Armies were prepared for, what would be later called, the First Indigenous War (Premmiera Bellia Endegeniq). Álvaro I established an alliance with the Oscarids in order to destroy the illegal Iuanine settlement in Billiotare, which was a major offence against Altannia, rendering its main western hub useless. On the mean time, while Oscarids besieged Iuanine-controlled Billiotare, Altannese troops commanded by Asier I headed towards Nesso des Fogers, and proceeded to destroy the Oscarid settlement. Thus, via deceiving diplomacy, Altannia ended the foreign occupation of Altannese land.

The Downfall of Eastern Altannia

After the period of prosperity lived after the Decrees of Archaicomaioreo were signed, Altannia was beginning to grow stagnant. Congress had not passed a law for months, and Asier I was disengaging completely from Altannese politics. Under this scenario, Álvaro I and Adrián Santos began a conspiracy to overthrow Asier I from the throne of Eastern Altannia. Due to a legal loophole, Blanca Domènech, first Duchess of Endomenequa, had forty-six votes allocated to her in any Altannese referendum. She, being sister of the queen-consort of Western Altannia, María Domènech, agreed to use her votes, which constituted a majority at the time, to convoke a referendum against Asier I, and have it pass with no possible opposition from the citizenry. Asier I was expelled from office on September 21st, 2014, and Guillermo García, former Counselor of War and Comprehension, was crowned as Guillermo I d'Altannia Urientalle.

Altannia Unita grew considerably during Guillermo's reign. Blanssmesòu was annexed in December 2014, and the Bureaucratic Congress was reworked to become a functional legislative institution in the First Bureaucratic Reform, expelling a considerable amount of hereditary Congressmen, and changing the conditions for accessing Congress. Rebeca del Monte became the new Counselor of War and Comprehension during this period.

However, Guillermo's policies headed towards centralization, undermining every autonomous power that Eastern Altannia had under Asier. He signed the Treaty of Endomenequa on November 6th, 2014, gaining a seat in Congress but losing control over Altannia Dualle, which became under the control of Western Altannia; the Act of Reform of the Altannese Armies, losing his charge as Commander-in-Chief, which became an elective office, to which Jose Manuel Freire became the first citizen to be elected; the Treaty of Unification of the Altannese Plains, losing the former province of Plannies Urientalles; and the Treaty of Disolution of Cannaiea, losing more than half of the territory of the former province of Cannaiea to Altannia Nûtralle and Occidentalle.

With the growing dissent of Eastern Altannia against Guillermo I, gaining him the title of Guillermo I "the Disastrous", the idea of convoking a new referendum started arising, and Adrián Santos, finally, convoked it on August 14th, 2015, and once again, with the unfixed loophole regarding unequal votes on referenda, it passed, and Guillermo I was expelled from office, yet stayed in Congress.

José Manuel Freire, Commander-in-Chief of Altannia, was named King of Eastern Altannia following the referendum, having a mostly uneventful and peaceful reign. Congress, thanks to the reforms conducted in Guillermo's time, further regulated the Altannese institutions during this period. The weakened Eastern Altannia that José Manuel I ruled gave an opportunity to Álvaro I and Adrián Santos to complete their centralization efforts on Altannia Unita. On October 21st, 2015, the Act of Eastern Surveillance was passed in Congress, officially turning Eastern Altannia into a vassal to the King of Western Altannia and the Ambassatore. This event ended with José Manuel's reputation, and on December 7th, 2015, upon an open denounce by Congressman Guillermo Moral to José Manuel I, he resigned.

Guillermo Moral, after that incident, due to his rhetoric and plans of future for Altannia, was crowned Guillermo II d'Altannia Urientalle. During his reign, the Second Bureaucratic Reform took place, Altannia's institutions were cleaned from the growing nepotism of late José Manuel's reign, and a Constitutional reform was called, to end political corruption and to have a proper legislative basis in Altannia, since the Decrees of Archaicomaioreo had been obscured with the years, and there was not a single entire version of them remaining. With the Treaty of Blanssmesòu, signed on January 25th, 2016, Guillermo II revoked the Act of Eastern Surveillance, amongst others, regaining the old sovereignty of Eastern Altannia; and with the Treaty of Purchase of Ecclesiatta, Eastern Altannia grew larger, recovering some of its old territories, if not reaching its pre-Endomenequa borders.

On April 4th, 2016, a new Oscarid incursion was detected, and the Council of War was convoked to plan a way to utterly destroy the, now, better defended settlement of the Oscarids in Archaicomaioreo. King Álvaro I d'Altannia Occidentalle formally declared the Second Indigenous War. On April 23rd, after some weeks of preparation, Álvaro I, Guillermo II, Adrián Santos, Pablo Blanco de Treiquatorça, and Elemer San Miguel da Domeuannessa marched to Archaicomaioreo, finally ending with this new Oscarid occupation.

After some incidents regarding threatening Altannese citizens, and a growingly disengaged Guillermo II, the duke of Treiquatorça, the duke of Domeuannessa, the Ambassatore and King Álvaro I, taking advantage from the fact that the new Constitution had not been redacted yet, used for the last time in Altannese history the corrupted referendum system, and expelled Guillermo II from his office on May 5th, 2016.

Though deemed a good king overall, his last actions in the throne earned him the title of Guillermo II "the Unmentionable".

Prime Minister Nazaniel Taylor was appointed as Regent of Eastern Altannia while a new King was being looked for, but on May 13th, King Álvaro I issued, before Congress, the Apology of Centralization (Apologgìa de Centraliçaccionne), in which he formally abolished the Crown of Eastern Altannia, which, he argued, had brought nothing but instability to Altannia Unita.

In sole accordance with the Constitutional power that has been granted to me, since the foundation of the State of Altann, cradle and basis for our Nation; enduringly maintained all across the Transitions, which, far from ending with the stability of the Kingdom, forged the integrity and history of our people; and ratified in Archaicomaioreo, on the sixteenth of December, 2013; I, Álvaro I, king and emperor of every Altannian, hereby disolve the system of commendettimentos.

Time has demonstrated, and it has been shown clearly to every citizen of Altannia Unita, that the administration of Eastern Altannia was and has always been insidious. The system under which two monarchs assume the power of one nation, only brings chaos, internal fights, power division, and subsequently, it brings the supremacy of a Crown above the other. In all of the dynastical chronology of Eastern Altannia we can see that not a single king has been able to fulfill the duties linked to Eastern administration but in an injurious way.

Starting with the Founding King and President, from whom our Nation's name comes, Sebastián I. His reign, in its 88 days of duration, started with the expected and needed engagement of a founding father, but quickly decayed into absolute apathy, ending in two abdications, one for each one of his ruling terms, without ever achieving a single one of the measures proposed by him. Thus, he will be remembered through history as Sebastián I "the Pusillanimous".

Following him, we have the Eastern King to whom Altannia owes the most, Asier I, in his 2 years and 4 months of reign. With him, we can affirm, Altannia as we know it was born, as well as we must recognize his war support, his territorial iniciative and, on top of all, his expeditions; but Eastern ambitions were both excessive and lacking under his reign, the first one for his territorial disputes, the second one for his non-existent administrative engagement, as well as the frequent fights between commendettimentos under his rule, resulted in the referendum of September 21st 2014 being convoked, ending, thus, his reign. Thus, he will be remembered through history as Asier I "the Conqueror".

The kings from the II Transition were absolutely trivial and insignificant, except for one. Josep I may have been as well the most harmful of any Eastern king, bringing our country to two civil wars, after which Altannia always turned victorious. His lack of recognition towards the Crown, as well as his purposefully harmful actions against Altannese patrimony, gained him and everyone who subscribed to his ideas the title of Enemies of Altannia. Thus, he will be remembered through history as Josep I "the Thirty-Four" [code name used during the Civil War to refer to him]

As well as Josep was the most insidious king for Altannia as a whole, it is not hard to grasp that Guillermo I was it for his commendettimento. With the treaties of Blanssmesòu, Unification and reform of the Armies, he sank Eastern Altannia into its biggest ruin. Thus, he will be remembered through history as Guillermo I "the Disastrous".

Following him, we have José Manuel I, worthy of mentioning due to his atrocious non-interventionism, which ended up bringing Eastern Altannia to a status, not only de facto now, but also de iure, of vassalage. Thus, he will be remembered through history as José Manuel I "the Diplomatic".

Finally, Guillermo II, who, with his acts of disdain against Altannia Unita, he let us see his antipatriotism, and even if he helped on first instance with the Constitutional Reform and to abolish José Manuel's vassalage, in the last period of his reign, he ended up completely disengaging from Altannese politics. Thus, he will be remembered through history as Guillermo II "the Conceited", "the Egocentric", "the Defamer" or "the Unmentionable".

Thus, I delegate all the territorial power onto the Imperial Crown, and I grant the new division of my territory to two loyal Altannians; the Northern viceroyalty to the Duke Elemer of Domeuannessa; and the Southern viceroyalty to the Margrave Iago de Freudia.

The [...] Emperor of all the Altannias, Álvaro I [...]

Empire of Altannia Unita

On May 13th, 2016, Álvaro I was crowned Emperor Álvaro I d'Altannia Unita, unifying the territorial power under his person, and thus, abolishing the five year old Eastern Altannia. The system of viceroyalties came afterwards, with Duke Elemer da Domeuannessa and Margrave Iago de Freudia as first Viceroys in Altannia. Afterwards, efforts to cleanse Altannese institutions started, with the Third Bureaucratic Reform, and the Constitutional Reform was hastened, to end with institutional corruption.

On August 29th, the new Altannese Constitution was ratified in Congress, finally endowing Altannia with a proper corpus of law.

On October 30th, yet another Oscarid incursion was detected in Archaicomaioreo, and the Third Indigenous War was declared, up until December 9th, when the Oscarids peacefully departed, thus, ending the war in a status quo.

Flag of Eodus.
With the ending of Altannese isolationism, and opening to the international community, Altannia almost instantly clashed with the Republic of Eodus, holding very distinct views on micronationalism. Tensions grew to their maximum when Eodus refused to formally recognize Altannia's sovereignty, and Altannia's Secret Services started what was called Operación Gazpacho, in an attempt to take over Eodus' Senate via flooding its citizenry with Altannians. The operation was a success, gaining 2 Altannese seats in senate on November 11th, and finally, amounting to Eodus' defunction.

On January 10th, Viceroy Elemer San Miguel d'Altannia Septentrionalle, Prime Minister Pablo Blanco de Treiquatorça and Emperor Álvaro I of Altannia signed the Agreements of Altannia Magna, in which they established that Nazaniel Taylor should succeed Adrián Santos as Ambassatore of Altannia Unita, and he should be expelled from office. After getting support from Congress, N. Sg. Armando Burgos was appointed to propose Adrián's expulsion in Congress, and after it passed, Adrián was given the honorific title of Ambassatore of Billiotare, and he is a Congressman to this day. He had been the Altannese citizen who remained for the longest time in a single government office, circa 5 years.

On March 17th, the current Constitution of Altannia Unita was ratified, giving rise to a new method of territory integration. Ever since, overseas territories such as Noveria, in Michigan; and La Seu de Terranova, in Murcia, were integrated into Altannia, as well as new territories within the municipality of Villanueva de la Cañada, Bobastria, which was split upon its creation between the Principality of Treiquatorça and the Viceroyalty of Northern Altannia.

In 2018, the Fourth Constitutional Reform took place, even further curtailing the Emperor's powers, and making the Judiciary and Legislative branches of government have elected leaders, while the Emperor stood as a purely executive figure, although the current Emperor holds a seat in Congress.

That same year, Altannia expanded its territories to Florida, with the annexation of Sheeplandia, and to Germany, with the partition of Weiden between Ceticilia and Altannia.


Altannia is an elective constitutional parliamentary monarchy. Ceremonially deemed an absolute monarchy, to contrast it with the commendettimentos system, Altannia's monarchy has been curtailed with time, so, that title is merely nominal as of now, and it is rarely used. Altannia follows Montesquieu's division of powers, with the executive power residing in the Alto Carggeo Assembly (Assamblea di Alto Carggeo, lit. Assembly of the High Rank); the legislative power, in the Bureaucratic Congress of Altannia Unita (Congress Bourocratiq d'Altannia Unita); and the judiciary power in the Imperial Tribunal of the High Magistrate of Altannia Unita (Tribuna Imperial del Alto Magistrado de Altannia Unita), although certain judiciary affaires are in Congress' jurisdiction.

Altannese Monarchy

The Altannese Emperor, who rules for life, unless kicked out of office by a popular referendum or Congressional resolution, is elected by the Alto Carggeo Assembly when the office is vacant. According to the Constitution, the Emperor's duties and powers include: Being the Altannese Head of State, and thus being the source of the State's power, and the representative of its legal person; issuing national IDs, appointing the Ambassatore of Altannia Unita and Altannia's Viceroys, leading the Alto Carggeo Assembly, Congress and the Imperial Tribune; appointing ministers, representing Altannia in the international sphere and declaring wars. The Emperor cannot found or lead any nations other than Altannia, nor can he be the Commander-in-Chief of the Altannese Army.

The current Emperor of Altannia Unita is His Imperial Majesty, the Emperor Álvaro I Barredo d'Altannia, and he has been, for the moment, the only person to assume the office in Altannia's history.

The Ambassatoría is the office in Altannia Unita that has existed continuously for the longest, dating back to early 2012, when Adrián Santos was appointed as Ambassatore. The office has changed its functions several times, but it has remained over the years as a mediating force between territorial issues, as well as a directly serving office to the Emperor, replacing him on his absence, and being the Second Leader of Congress.

The Ambassatoría has held territories on Altannia Unita from as early as late 2012, reaching its peak in 2013, just before the creation of the commendettimento of Altannia Dualle, whose reason of being was, mainly, to curtail the increasing power of the Ambassatore.

The Ambassatoría is composed by the Ambassatore of Altannia Unita, as a head of the institution; the Secretary to the Ambassatore, and every regional leader of the different Alcaldías.

The Ambassatore of Altannia Unita has, traditionally, been highly protected from being kicked out from office, in order to ensure the stability of the office, in contrast to the volatile nature of Eastern Altannia. However, protections to the Ambassatore were progressively removed, requiring unanimity on Congress by 2015, and just a majority by 2016.

Three people have been appointed as Ambassatore of Altannia Unita since its foundation.

Prime Minister

The Prime Minister of Altannia is the office in charge of coordinating the actions of Ministries and their representative before the Alto Carggeo Assembly.

Traditionally, the Prime Minister, office which first appeared in the late 2012, was the leader of the Lower Alto Carggeo, but with the development of Altannese politics, and the centralization of the Alto Carggeo in the Assembly, the office was reworked to concern separation of powers.

The Prime Minister, traditionally appointed by the Emperor, is nowadays chosen between members of Congress by the Designated Electors. (See Altannese Elections)

Princeps Altannés

The Princeps Altannés is the elected office of the Alto Carggeo, created in order to avoid growing corruption within the, otherwise, highly elitist and secretive branch of government. Whilst initially having a term in office of one month, it was extended to two months due to an excessive accumulation of elections in Altannia, which resulted in general dissent. Only Members of Congress are electable to the office, and if somebody has been elected, they cannot be re-elected until two additional terms have transpired. Originally a single seat in the Alto Carggeo Assembly, it was extended to be proportional to the seats in Congress with the rise of political parties in Altannia, to avoid voter alienation, and ensure a better representation of Congress' ideology in the Assembly.

Bureaucratic Congress

The Bureaucratic Congress of Altannia Unita (off. Congress Bourocratiq d'Altannia Unita) is the legislative branch of the Altannese Government. Founded in 2012, it has had varying amounts of power depending on the specific period, generally correlating inversely to the amount of power invested on the Crown. Members of Congress may be elected by the Alto Carggeo Assembly or by Congress itself, and as of now, there are thirty-two citizens composing Congress.

History of the Bureaucratic Congress

The first records of Congress are extremely vague, and come from circa 2012, matching with the instauration of the Ambassatore of Altannia Unita. As shown by these records, early Congress was composed entirely by people holding nobiliary titles, whose vote was weighted accordingly to their nobiliary rank, and the King of Western Altannia and Ambasatore had the final say on any resolution proposed to it.

After the expulsion of King Asier I, Congress underwent what is known as the First Bureaucratic Reform, in which the nobility was curtailed from their representation in Congress, the King of Eastern Altannia was allowed in (See Treaty of Endomenequa), and every member of Congress started having equally valued votes.

However, many people were granted a seat in Congress due to nepotism alone, and the growingly apathetic members of Congress triggered, in the late 2015, the Second Bureaucratic Reform, overseen by King Guillermo II, in which the protocol of Congress was standardized, and several members of Congress were expelled based on their previous performance, including King José Manuel I. The Reform was called after Jaime Scharfhausen led a rebellion against the newly imposed protocol, which earned him a permanent expulsion from Congress. Congress regulations have become more specific ever since, and, up to this day, they are still being renewed.

The earliest recorded Act of Congress dates from August 3rd, 2015, the Aqtta d'Admendattionne ac Reuniphicaccionne Teirritorialle Altannessa, even if earlier documents, like the Treaty of Endomenequa, are ratified by Congress. This early Act does not show who partook in the session, it is just shown that there were twelve Members of Congress at the moment. The first Act to record the actual members of Congress who partook in it dates back to November 22nd, 2015, and it only shows nine members of Congress. However, it is widely thought that these acts did not record absent members, so, it is very likely that there were, still, twelve members at that point in time.

Composition of the Bureaucratic Congress

The Congress of Altannia Unita is a tetracameral one, encompasing several government scopes that way.

A distinction can be made between the three lower chambers (Legislative Chamber, Judiciary Chamber and Referendum Chamber) and the high chamber (Senate), since the first ones share the same members, and the latter does not. The Legislative Chamber of the Bureaucratic Congress is in charge of making and passing laws, the Judiciary Chamber is the second highest Court in Altannia (See Justice in Altannia), and the Referendum Chamber is in charge of ratifying popular referenda.

The Senate, elected every three months by restricted suffrage, is in charge of drafting proposals into proper bills, if requested. Starting as an Emperor-chosen high chamber, it has devolved into an elected institution whose most important function is mediating between opposite proposals regarding social issues. The number of seats of Senate is always fixed as a fifth of those in the lower chambers.

As of now, the members of the Altannese Senate are the following:

Altannese Politics

Altannia, although traditionally devoid of political parties, is nowadays a multi-party system. Altannese political parties are provided with special rights and privileges, in order to foment the diversity and representation of ideologies in Altannia.

The first parties to be created were the Libertarian Party of Altannia (PLA), founded by Matthew Cummings, and the Socialist Party of Altannia (PSA), founded by Ana Bango. The first law regulating political parties made it mandatory for a neutral party to exist, the Imperial Party of Altannia (PIA), which would be formed by the Emperor, Ambassatore and Prime Minister, in order to avoid their partaking in ideological issues. However, it was removed from law shortly after the 2018 constitutional reform.

Altannia is a founding member of the League of Micronations, colloquially known as DANC, after the founding nations Deiakia, Altannia, Noveria, and the Kingdom of Ceticilia. This organization originated in the wake of Eodus's downfall (see History above), in order to protect the sovereignty of the member states from external influence. Altannia also recognizes Dera, Gigoloslavia, and the People's Republic of Charmania as sovereign.
