The Empire of Munkkia, (IPA /'mɒnkeɪə/) (Danish: Munkkiariget) was a micronation located in Odense, Denmark, with territory in Hoptrup , Denmark as well as large colonial territory. It was officially founded on 7 July 2014 by three students under the name Republic of Munkkia. It became an empire on the 13th of January 2015. The nation itself is located in four separate locations in a dorm complex within Odense. Munkkia currently has five citizens, three of whom work for the Munkkia Government. The president of Munkkia is Mathias L. Magnussen. Munkkia has had two constitutions, it also has a flag and emblem, along with military forces, and a functioning government.
History of Munkkia
On the 15th of June 2014, Jonny Møbjerg, Mathias L. Magnussen and Angutivik-Casper Rúnur Tausen Hansen were standing outside of the dorm-complex where they live. Mathias brought up micronations after reading several articles on it, and wanting to start one himself, he brought up the idea of three independent micronations. Jonny and Casper liked the idea a lot, and started working as soon as they returned home. On the same day, Mathias and Jonny has already created a flag, and a plan for their future, and everyone had come up with a name.
Mathias chose the United Republic of Lolk, Casper created `Ýlfalærn and Jonny created Anonystan.
Things went pretty slow between the nations, only a few things were implemented, such as a weapons treaty between Casper and Mathias. It wasn't until the 7. July 2014, almost a month later, that Mathias suggested combining the three nations into one actual micronation. Casper and Jonny agreed, and the Republic of Munkkia was officially formed.
Formation of The Republic
After the formation on the 7th of July 2014, things took off, and only 4 days later, on the 11th of July 2014, the government infrastructure was created, and Jonny Møbjerg was elected president. Mathias was elected Minister of the Ministry of Media, and Casper was elected Minister of the Ministry of Military. The next few days were spent on writing, planing and growing. On the 17th of July, the first Grand Meeting was held over Skype. At this meeting, it was decided that a military force was necessary, so the Munkkia Army was created, and Casper became the Field Marshall. Mathias became General. Two days later, the National Party was formed, after Mathias realised that he had forgotten to create one before Jonny was elected president.
Munkkia claimed its first outside territory on the 24th of July 2014, in Hoptrop, after Munkkia gained a new citizen.
On the 7th of January, 6 months after the formation of Munkkia, the first official election was held, with Mathias L. Magnussen winning, becoming the new president.
Formation of The Empire
After becoming president, Mathias L. Magnussen turned the National Alliance into the Imperial Lolkian Party, turning The Republic of Munkkia into The Empire of Munkkia, and introducing a new Order, known as "Lolkianism". Lolkianism promoted totalitarianism, voluntaryanism, imperialism and patriotism. It also considered itself very altruist, and maintained that a national elite of intelligent individuals were to form the nation of Munkkia, and grow it as much as possible for it to survive in the future. Mathias L. Magnussen also proposed the consumption of much more territory, and the absorption of other, smaller nations. The Empire also claimed three new colonies, giving it five colonies in total.
The Empire of Munkkia wanted to grow the national economy, and strengthen the governmental structure. The National Bank of Munkkia got a new Chairman, and a new set of banknotes which were put into production on the 5th of February. Four new departments were also established, which were to maintain every interest of the nation.
One of the first things done under the new regime was the claiming of three new colonies.
The "Munkkia in Brazil" decleration
On the 29th of January 2015, The Kingdom of Ruthenia, which had been a personal ally with the President of Munkkia for some time, was given a document titled "The Decleration of Munkkia in Brazil". The document was a offer to turn the nation of Ruthenia into Munkkia, and make Munkkia in Brazil an official territory. This would include turning King Oscar of Ruthenia into the national Emperor of Munkkia, making Munkkia a monarchy. A meeting was held in a Brazilian restaurant between the government of Ruthenia. Although Mathias L. Magnussen had offered them to become Munkkian for a while, they declined the offer, wanting to remain diplomatic partners and work on bettering their own nation.
The Empire of Munkkia denies diplomatic relationships, however they use a similar system in the form of Friendship Associations. The Empire of Munkkia currently has two Friendship Association, however they have applied for several. The Friendship Associations include:
