The Empire of Progle, or simply Progle for short, is a micronation created on January 17, 2009. Progle is noted for being especially weird and unusual.

Land Claims

Progle claims much land, which varies in size and sometimes far apart. Here is a list:

Terrestrial Lands

  • Wolfania, largest of the terrestrial land claims. Named for Emperor.
  • Progolia, most populated part of Progle. Progle's capital.
  • Zadonia, smallest of the Terrestrial land claims. Newest land to be claimed.

Extraterrestrial Lands

  • Binary Star System, a binary star system with no official name and the Astronomical Catalogue Number TYC 3640-34-1.
  • NGC 2537, a galaxy which happens to be the largest of Progle's land claims, but ironically the least populated. Contains Eminoon, which is a top secret government location.
  • Fasdonium, a solar system that's existence is not yet confirmed.

Religion

Although citizens of Progle have the freedom of religion, the official religion of Progle is known as Proglish. There are approximately nine practicers of Proglish. The core belief of the Proglish is being weird, and that being weird is the secret to happiness. Their god is Harold, a giant Rubik's cube that lives in a turkey in Fasdonium. Proglish churches are known as Vavaltas, of which there is currently one.

Government

Progle has 10 government officials. They are, in order of power:

  • Emperor: Wolfe P.
  • Vice Emperor: Frank M.
  • Secretary of State: Milly H.
  • Secretary of Weirdness: Adam P.
  • Secretary of the Treasury: Amy M.
  • Secretary of Homeland Security: Alexander V.
  • Secretary of Education: Bridget G.
  • Secretary of the Interior: Doug H.
  • Secretary of Secretaries: Max M.
  • Secretary of Agriculture: Raine P.

Laws

Progle has no official law or law enforcement system. Progle does have 11 main laws, both serious and not:

  • No Murder
  • No Theft
  • No Torture
  • No Disturbing public property
  • No smoking within Progle (can be done by any Progolian of legal age if they are outside of Progle borders)
  • No whacking your cousin with a yellow carpet with purple stripes between 11:00 AM and 11:01
  • No eating whale blubber or marble columns longer than 20 feet.
  • No flying kites in a bathroom.
  • No sawing your underwear in half on Wednesday.
  • No applying makeup to nose with a yellow bow-tie.
  • No drawing French mustaches on pictures of Smurfs.

Violations of these laws cause termination of citizenship of Progle. If any act that is considered a crime is committed by a Progolian but that is not covered by the existing laws, whether or not the committer is expelled from Progle is decided by a vote from the top government officials.
