Constitute nation of the Workers' Democratic Republic under Freya

The Empire of Maetheus, or simply Maetheus, is a micronation and political experiment. It is a constitute nation of the Workers' Democratic Republic under Freya.

History

The idea of the political experiment began before and during the formation of the Workers' Democratic Republic under Freya, due to Vidhur struggling with the Buddhist concept of Anicca, or Impermanence. He had wondered if there was an alternative to claiming land on earth (which is already half-way through it's life), and had considered claiming space, extrasolar land, and other ways around it.

In August, Vidhur, researching larger micronations, came across the Global Country of World Peace, a country that seemingly claims no land. He had come to the conclusion that it was "a changing religion that elects a leader, and for some reason mints it's own currency and has a flag". After much planning, he had decided to found a political experiment in which a nation has no land, only citizens, a flag, government, and a set of laws, and compare it to a functioning territorial micronation.
