The Empire of Urielandia is a micronation founded on December 27th, 2010 as a republic and initially located in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, the country where Uriel I was born. It has been assured by the creator himself that the nation was inspired by the American micronation of Molossia, which Kevin Baugh rules indeed.

Etymology

Basically, Urielandia stands for "The Land of Uriel". There is no explanation or something difficult.

History

Urielandia was established as a micronation on December 27th, 2010 by Venezuelan resident Uriel Bermúdez, who proclaimed himself as the new president and head of state of the country. Meanwhile, his brother created also the micronation of Anarislavia, so he could mock about the new nation his own little brother had founded. Furthermore a new constitution was written during the last days of 2010 and it was approved by the Urielandish National Congress. The development of the nation started several days after the independence was declared. 2011 was also an important year for Urielandia, because the first elections were held in the country, the elections where the Urielandish people had to choose their favorite option to rule the provinces that are part of Urielandia. The Urielandish Democratic Party (UDP) won in three provinces but the Urielandish Convergent Party (UCP) won in one province, so it was a success. The nation kept growing since then and the President said in his own words that Urielandia will be a "great nation among the micronations and Urielandia will be a micronational superpower". After that, the parliamentary elections were held in 2012 where the UDP won the majority of the seats (112 seats) and the UCP won 64.

On May 22nd the Empire was proclaimed and Uriel I was crowned as the first Emperor of the Empire of Urielandia.
