Conflicts

The Kingdom of Quebec has had very few altercations with other micronations, however the recurring problem in foreign relations with Quebec is the Kingdom of Baustralia. Baustralia has been disliked for awhile, ever since the Fox Islands dispute, to the 2019 Kapresh constitutional crisis, Quebec and Baustralia would be grabbing at each others necks. The peak grew at the point of the 2019 Quebecois coup d'état attempt, that is when the popular phrase, "Down with the fish" began. Now the phrase is seen as more of a joke, then a statement.

Culture

The main culture derives from the US State of Michigan, and the country of Canada. Religions practiced and recognized by the government are Roman catholicism. Internet culture is also very common in Quebec, such as with memes. Demographically and ethnically, Quebec considers itself to be very diverse due to its roots coming from all around the world.

Music

Music is the most frequent form of Quebec culture. Rock and roll music, and Rap music are perhaps one of the most influential aspect of Québécois culture. Three of the most listened artists are XXXTentacion, the classic rock band, Queen, and the British folk-band, the Beatles.

Architecture

Architecture in Quebec is very classical and mostly are Gothic Revival style or Art Deco, with the exception of a few modern buildings.

100 Quebecois Dollars

One of the Most famous structures built is the Uniroyal Giant Tire. The tire was designed by the same company that made the iconic, "Empire State Building", Shreve, Lamb & Harmon. The tire first debuted at the 1964 New York World's Fair as the US Royal Giant Tire Ferris Wheel. The wheel carried over two million people, including prominent passengers such as Jacqueline Kennedy, Telly Savalas, and the Shah of Iran. After the fair it was relocated to Michigan on the side of I-94 and now currently sits in Québécois territory.

Rights

In recent years, the Kingdom has set up and created new rights to surpass the old controversial laws against the LGBT. On 1 May 2019, a bill was passed to make gay marriage legal.

Environment

In Quebec, there is a very big community of Environmentalists, who believe in ideas of power with clean energy, like Wind or Solar. There is even a Green party in Quebec, to support these ideas. Quebec however does not have enough funding to afford its own power system. Most electrical power comes from the Enrico Fermi Nuclear Generating Station, also know as, Fermi. Fermi is disliked by many Quebecois citizens for the safety and stability of the plant. Fermi has even had a "partial meltdown", in the 60s, this is what fears most people in Quebec. These ideas made the imfamous book by John G. Fuller, We Almost Lost Detroit a popular hit.

Government and politics

The government is a absolute monarchy, with a bicameral government. The upper house, the House of Lords, consists of the speaker, and all peers of Quebec. The lower house, House of Commons, consists of the Cabinet Ministers and a speaker.

Quebec has a semi-parliamentary system, which is were the main houses, Commons and Lords, meet into on centralized room, this is sometimes referred to as the Central government. Sometimes, the President of Prime minster will join as Member of Parliament for Versailles, however both houses have no power and cannot overrule the Monarch.

Quebec's semi-federal structure divides government responsibilities between the federal government and the 3 provinces. The provinces elect leaders to become a Member of Parliament and, join the house of commons to represent the province. Territories however, do not have the right to hold any legal representation and are usually managed by the Central government.

Quebec's Unitary system puts everything mostly under an centralized governing rule.

The current leaders are, the Monarch who has absolute power, King Aidan I, the President Dylan Sweet and finally, the Prime Minister vaccant. Everyone execept for the Monarch has no power. The Monarch can overrule anybody in the government, since the monarch has absolute power.

Memberships


In late May 2019, Quebec was making its final decison to complete Quebexit. Quebexit was the plan to leave all organisations with members apart of the 2019 Quebecois coup d'état attempt, except the Grand Unified Micronational. After re-establishing the Kingdom once more, the Monarch had decided to finish Quebexit and leave most organisations. Quebexit is still an active on going process.

In early June 2019, many Quebecois wanted to rejoin the Joint International Space Administration, or otherwise know as JISA. Quebec left the Administration during the period of its first Kingdom, the departure was because of "Lack of motion", said Aidan I, in a diplomatic call with the sovereign of Ikonia, Cameron I. Many still attempted to push to re-join the Administration, which let the King to release the statement of, "Did you all really think with a cheap drone, we could fly it high enough to see the curvature of the Earth?".

Provinces and territories

Quebec is a semi-federation composed of 3 provinces and one territory. Together, the provinces collect more revenue than the federal government, an almost unique structure among federations in the world. Using its spending powers, the federal government can initiate national policies in provincial areas, such as the Vaccination Health Act; the provinces can opt out of these, but rarely do so in practice. Equalization payments are made by the federal government to ensure reasonably uniform standards of services and taxation are kept between the richer and poorer provinces.

Geography and Climate

Most of the land area in Quebec is mostly flat and a little hilly. There are many forested places around Quebec and many small plants and trees.
