Estuaria (Estuarian Ta'agra: Astura; Czech: Estuárie; Slovak: Estuária), Noble Estuarian Empire (Czech: Vznešená estuárijská říše; Slovak: Vznešená estuárijská ríša) or officially The Moon-Blessed Estuarian Empire (Ta'agra: Kha'jaygzonithim Asturi Ri'renad) is the cultural project that positions itself as a partially sovereign nation that can declare its territorial claims at any autonomously controlled territory within Czech and Slovak borders with possible expansion to the nearest countries. The attributes of this entity put it in the category of micronation or, at this moment, even the virtual country.
The project of Estuaria has started in April 2020.
Government and politics
Estuarian Empire is de-facto an absolute monarchy and hasn't any classic form of democratic government or legislative structures. So called "Rine", factually emperor, holds all the national power, is considered a main representative of country, its culture, religion and besides that is responsible for the sustentation of order and peace within the borders of Estuaria. However the institute of ministers and ministries is also existing in the Empire. There are no direct recommendations or legally accepted principles concerning the order of ministries function and they factually perform the role of the Rine's replacements in matters that are not presenting serious impact on nation.
Estuarian official currency is "Saidar" that hasn't the subunit but instead is supposed to consist of coins made of silver only. The price of one saidar towards another currencies depends on how much the production of one coin costs at certain period of time (which means that saidar's exchange rate is bound to the one of silver).
But taking in account the difficulty with emission of saidar and operations with this currency, the state uses all the possible currencies that are available to be easily converted and exchanged, and puts Euro as the universal solid currency. Besides that the Czech Crown is being even more universal and used more for lesser everyday operations.
The country is supposed to have relatively developed vehicle base and a big group of transportation enthusiasts covering ground, water and air.
Hypothetical Estuarian national railways are covered by enthusiasts department united in state facility "FoxRail". It has slightly different system of passenger classes, own rolling stock classification and accepts 1435 and 760 millimetres as the basic operational gauges.
The main purpose of Estuarian micronational project is copying of medieval or fantasy culture under modern realities and lifestyle. The general one was supposed to be built on leftovers of fictional Verd'landian or more precisely Estuarian culture, yet both suffered abandonment and collapse that have left Estuarian micronation without special ethnic peculiarities. Right now the set of national identity that could be called native Estuarian culture is being partially filled by elements of fictional Khajiit race's culture (The Elder Scrolls universe) which is one of the most similar to suspended Verd'landian Estuarian. The state uses local modification of Ta'agra as official representative language since both Verd'landian and Estuarian language projects are abandoned and suspended.
Officially the cult that presents Estuaria is former Verd'landian Verdism (now mostly called Jumism in Estuarian way). Both flag and coat of arms of the nation are directly referring to the elements of this religion. The whole Estuaria is de-facto a secular state allowing to accept any religion or cult at subnational territory in case if those would not present a threat to safety and health to their members and surrounding society.
