The Federal Republic of Zirconic is a micronation and sovereign republic consisting of 7 Provinces and 2 Territories, located throughout Canada, the US, the UK, and Brasil, founded on November 1, 2009, by Andrew Janiszewski. It is one of the longest-surviving micronations in its diplomatic circle.
As a child, Andrew Janiszewski admired the name of a mineral called zirconia. Zirconia is a mineral similar to diamonds that is used in the making of faux diamond rings, because it is much cheaper to harvest and to morph. Although this seems like a strange name for the beginning of the country, it does signify one thing; like Zirconia to the diamond, Zirconic works to prove that although most people in the world see Zirconic as second-place to macronations, Zirconic will not back down until they earn their rightful respect.
One November night in 2009, Andrew Janiszewski was doing 6th Grade social homework with his father. It was a mapping activity. Seeing his son to be bored, Tim Janewski, who would eventually become a citizen of Zirconic, often taking a role in the governance of Zirconic, decided to tell his son stories about the micronations he had heard of. One of the micronations he spoke of was The Principality of Sealand. Andrew was so inspired by the story of Sealand, he decided it was time to create his own nation: Zirconic. He along with his three pets, Flamey,(a newt), Ziggy,(an African dwarf frog) and Wiggy, (another African dwarf frog), along with his best friend, Aug Dahlgren, became the founding members of this great nation. From there on, Zirconic grew to new heights, from a nation of 5 citizens, to its current population of 30 citizens.
Government and Politics
The Zirconian government consists of three branches; executive, legislative, and judicial. The following are positions in the government: 1 President, 1 Prime Minister, 7 Members of Parliament, Cabinet Ministers (fluctuating/indeterminate number). 3 Premiers, 4 Governors, 1 Supreme Justice,
Law and Order
Zirconic does not have its own independent court currently, and almost entirely relies on the Canadian judicial system in terms of serious crimes; however, the Supreme Justice has certain limited judicial abilities and has taken judicial action on at least one occasion. The only crimes in Zirconic are violence other than self-defense, theft, and harassment.
Previously, the Zirconian government disbanded the People's Liberation Army of Zirconic in favour of solving situations diplomatically and, for several years, despite participating in the "micronational Cold War" between Styrka, Zirconic and the MUPP on one side and far-left states like Marksovska and Frieden on the other, the plan to not have a military worked out. However, within the last year, with virtual insurgencies on the rise and at least one of Zirconic's closest allies (GRAAS) being successfully invaded and the government overthrown, the government has approved the rebirth of the PLA. The People's Liberation Army now mostly focuses on working with Operation Sol Rojo, a "micronational NATO", if you will, filled with several of Zirconic's closest allies, in order to predict and prevent virtual insurgencies and foreign-sponsored revolutions.
The majority of Zirconic's citizens reside in Canada, and as such, Zirconian culture is essentially just an extension of Canadian culture. However, there are a few differences; Zirconic allows any citizen whatsoever to join as a citizen. There has never been a case of a citizen being rejected. Granted, the government retains the right to expel any citizen deemed unworthy of Zirconian citizenship, but this is an aspect most find highly admirable. Zirconic is also a very pacifistic place; there have been no reports of violence in Zirconic, and there will likely never be any.
The Federal Republic of Zirconic is a federation, with three total levels of administration; federal, provincial/territorial, and municipal. The Republic currently consists of 7 Provinces and 2 Territories, spanning Canada, the USA, the UK, and Brasil.
