The Federal Kingdom of Starasia, more commonly known as Starasia, was a micronation in Mississippi, United States.
Starasia was founded in 2021 by King Tucker I after seeing micronations like the Republic of Molossia and the British Arctic Territory run their operations, with the main inspiration being Molossia. The capital of the micronation is New Tuckland, while the biggest city is Liwitzia.
Starasia was governed as a federal parliamentary constitutional monarchy, under the headship of King Tucker I, with the prime minister being announced at a later date. The government held a conservative standpoint on most political arguments, while on some they tended to shift more to the center. King Tucker I had exchanged emails and embassy inquiries with Kevin Baugh, the president of Molossia, and Clay Moss, Head of the British Arctic Territory. Starasia had ambassadors to both micronations. While Starasia was not very active in the broader micronational movement, as quoted by Tucker I, they "hoped to become a major part of the micronational movement."
On 11 April 2021, Tucker I made the report that the micronation would be disbanding until further notice. They are currently disbanded to this day.
Starasia was the first name to come to Tucker I's head when he was trying to think of a national name, and so he used that. There is no meaning behind the name.
Starasia was NOT in any way affiliated with the continent of Asia.
Starasia was founded on 16 March 2021 by Tucker I. He founded Starasia originally as a federal republic. The first Constitution was drafted on 18 March 2021 but was later scrapped. Starasia's flag was designed on 20 March 2021. The republic became a kingdom on 2 April 2021.
