The Empire of Kyberia, known colloquially as Great Kyberia and historically as Emosia, is a self-declared sovereign state (better known as a micronation) located within the U.S. State of Arizona. Kyberia is made up of several territories in the town of Gilbert. Kyberia is considered a serious micronation, and views itself as the spiritual successor to the British empire. The nation is also highly diplomatic and trade savvy, currently holding deals with several other nations.
The Empire of Kyberia was originally founded on 13 February 2019, however, the people consider the date of the Renovamen Kyberia as the true day of foundation. The people of Kyberia are dedicated to the nation's imperial ways, with the nation's borders constantly expanding. They are however still diplomatic with the other nations within the Kyberian Sector, and has remained in high regard with the nations in the sector.
Since its creation, the state has evolved many times: first from a province to a kingdom, then to an empire and most recently, from Emosia to Kyberia.
Emosia was once a province of the Tsardom of Phokland (now the Phoklandian Free State). 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
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 13 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 25 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) (These territories were later renamed).
The Empire of Emosia had then joined the Organisation of Active Micronations, and had began rapidly engaging in diplomatic relations. During this time, the empire had rapidly expanded in size, soon claiming an entirely new shire, which had later been involved in the heated Emosian Civil War. After the signing of the Treaty of Victoria, the Empire of Emosia then underwent rapid militarisation, and had developed several new weapons to satisfy the interests of the Emosian Imperial Military. Soon after, Emosia had introduced the Emosian Dependency Programme in order to help developing micronations grow and flourish under the protection and stability of the Empire. On 12 May 2019, The Crowned Kingdom of Pilarian had agreed to join the Emosian Dependency Programme, becoming the first micronation to join the programme. On 1 June 2019, Emosia, in order to pursue higher legitimacy, had relinquished all claims within the continent of Antarctica, due to seemingly fruitless task to enforce the claim.
Period of Isolationism
Following the collapse of the Organisation of Active Micronations, the Empire of Emosia entered a period of isolationism, in which the empire had closed itself off from all other micronational influence and contact asides from the Phoklandian Free State. During this period, Emosia had undergone serious internal reforms, including how the government ultimately functions. Reforms in military and in the foreign office had also occurred, dictating how the empire may enter foreign relations and how ranks proceed within the military.
The Renovamen and Emergence of Kyberia
On 1 January 2020, the Empire of Emosia was officially "reborn" into the Empire of Kyberia. This had brought about what Emperor James I had called the "Renovamen Kyberia", in which he, with approval from parliament, was allowed to assume the role of absolute monarch for 2 months. During this time he had changed much of the appearance and national symbolism of Kyberia, revitalising the vexillology of nation, and instilling a new sense of nationalism in the nation's people, earning the nation the colloquial term "Great Kyberia".
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 empire 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. However, due to a recent vote of parliament, the current Emperor has been granted the role of absolute monarch until 1 March 2020.
Citizens are represented in the government through the Imperial Minister. The Imperial Minister's job is to gather petitions for changes or additions that the people would like to see within Kyberia. The Imperial Minister 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 Kyberia 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 Imperial Minister and Speaker of the House of Parliament are held every 5 years. One must be at least the age of 13 to vote.
