Eleftheria was an Exarchate of the Empire of Imvrassia.
Eleftheria is the word for liberty in Greek.
The motto of the Exarchate of Eleftheria is "Land of Liberty" "Χώρα της Ελευθερίας" which is the motto of the main nation which makes up the Exarchate in North America, that being the United States of America.
Eleftheria was founded in 2011 as a republic. In 2012 the country became an Empire, influenced by the Empire of New Europe, another micronation in the community. After about two years of relative dormancy, the Empire was annexed as an Exarchate by the Kingdom of Imvrassia in 26 May 2016. After the administrative reorganization of 1st of January 2020 the Exarchate of Eleftheria has administratively subordinate to the Praetorian Prefecture of Americania. On 9 August 2020 the Praetorian Prefecture of Americania was abolished due the small activity and influence it exerted on the micronations of the American continent.
Eleftheria is an Exarchate of the Empire of Imvrassia and is ruled by an Exarch who is nominally appointed by the Crown of Imvrassia but is thought to be hereditary. The Exarch rules for life and is not bound by any constitution.
Eleftheria is composed of Counties and Dutchies that are created by the Exarch in order to address certain administrative requirements or needs. Some positions may be ceremonial in nature, while others are functional and contribute to the overall function of the Exarchate.
Eleftherian culture is based on Greek and American culture, with influences from Europe. Eleftherian culture is based on Eastern Orthodox Christianity and customs with the majority of the Exarchate sharing these.
Citizenship is open to the Eleftherian Exarchate to all those individuals that are above the age of 18 and reside within the political boundaries of the various North American nations (Canada, US, and Mexico) and are citizens in good standing and honorable within their native country. Citizenship may be requested through the League of Hellenistic Micronations email address of firstname.lastname@example.org
Citizenship may be revoked or not granted based on the behavior or other reasons so determined by the Exarch as inappropriate for a citizen to engage in. All citizens of the Exarchate are citizens of the Empire of Imvrassia and all laws apply to the Exarchate as well.
The Exarchate of Eleftheria is wholly and entirely a part of the Empire of Imvrassia and is not associated in anyway with "Principado De Eleftheria" which is a part of Organización de Micro Estados de Naciones Unidas (OMENU). The Exarchate of Eleftheria is Hellenistic in nature and encompasses all of North America with various divisions along macronational lines, the other does not.
