Government Website


The Empire of Emosia is a self-declared sovereign state located within the U.S. State of Arizona and parts of Antarctica. Emosia is made up of several territories in the town of Gilbert as well as a stretch of land on the continent of Antarctica. Emosia was formally a province of the Tsardom of Phokland.

Emosia is a serious micronation, and views itself as the spiritual successors to the British and Russian empires. Emosia is highly diplomatic and trade savvy, currently holding deals with several other nations.

History

Emosia has existed for only approximately 3 months, yet has gone through many changes and notable events.

Pre-Sovereignty

Emosia was once a province of the (then) Principality of Phokland, (Then) Viceroyalty of Phokland, and (now) Tsardom of Phokland. Emosia was a strategic military and governmental province under the direct rule of the prime minister of Phokland, which at the time was James Ellis himself.

Kingdom of Emosia

Former flag of the Kingdom of Emosia

Shortly after the foundation of the Tsardom of Phokland, James Ellis had decided to declare the Province of Emosia an independent nation. This idea was condoned by the Tsar of Phokland and on the 13th of February 2019, James Ellis was coronated as the King of Emosia. In the time that Emosia was a Kingdom, many crucial reforms and developments within the nation had occurred, such as the foundation of the Emosian Parliment, the Emosian-Phoklandian trade agreement, and the acquisition of Vandor.

Empire of Emosia

On the 25th of March 2019, the Tsardom of Phokland relinquished all Phoklandian territory within the United States of America (with the exception of the Fiefdom of New Prussia and the U.S. Phoklandian Embassy) and gifted the territory to the Kingdom of Emosia. Upon reviving these lands, King James I declared Emosia the Empire of Emosia, and named the lands gifted to Emosia Эллисград (Ellisgrad), Onderon, and Vorherrschaft (Supremacy).

Government

Emosia is an executive constitutional monarchy under the reign of Emperor James I. Laws can be created by monarch, and must be run through the royal advisor before the law can be put in place. If a law seems detrimental to that of the kingdom or it's people, the royal advisor can emergency overrule the monarch in order to safeguard the well-being of the nation and it's citizens.

Representation

Citizens are represented in the government through the Representative of the People. The Representative of the People's job is to gather petitions for changes or additions that the people would like to see within Emosia. The Representative of the People then brings the petitions to the Parliament, where the law/addition is voted upon. If the law is approved by the Parliament, it will then go to the reigning monarch and royal advisor, where the law will ultimately be set in place, or discarded.

Holders of Government Offices

All holders of government offices within the Empire of Emosia are appointed by the reigning monarch and royal advisor, with the exception of the Representative of the People and Speaker of the House of Parliament being elected positions. Appointed holders of government offices will hold their position until duty is relived by the reigning monarch. Elections for the Representative of the People and Speaker of the House of Parliament are held every 5 years. One must be at least the age of 13 to vote.

Geography and Climate

Geography

The geography of Emosia varies from territories due to the Empire's expansion, but all Emosian land falls under the category of desert.

Terrain

The Fatherland of Emosia varies from flat plains, to rolling hills, to rocky outcrops. The Emosian Fatherland is located within the U.S. state of Arizona, and thus acquires it's traits. Emosia is mainly grassy plains and hills, along with a few lakes. The Emosian Antarctic territories however, have a very different terrain. The colony of Vandor is coated in a thick layer of ice and snow, with a small mountainous area to the west. The territory is very difficult to access and traverse, due to Antarctica's nearly inhospitable conditions.

Wildlife

The Emosian Fatherland, being in a hot desert, is home to many reptiles and insects, those mainly being geckos, snakes, cicadas, and scorpions, along with occasional bees. Emosia also has a large bird population consisting mainly ducks and mud hens. However, in the Antarctic territories, there is a stark contrast. The colony of Vandor is barren of life, other than penguins and certain sea-bearing mammals. The difficult accessibility and harsh climate makes life for humans very difficult, thus, Vandor is uninhabited.

Climate

The Empire of Emosia, having territory on different continents, has different climates in regions. Emosia hosts two extreme climate differences, having land close to the equator, and on the continent of Antarctica.
