Official Government Website

The Federated States of Gapla, more commonly known as Gapla, is a micronation in the Western Coast of the United States in Southern California.

Gapla was established on the 28th of February 2019 and is still active. It is part of the Micronations United for Progress, the League of Independent Nations, and the Alliance of Micronational Crowns. As a federation of 15 states, it is very democratic, focuses on the liberty and human rights, and believes all humans are created equal.

The Politics of Gapla include a freedom of political parties movement, and an active representative government called the Parliament of the Federated States of Gapla, or more commonly known as simply Parliament.

The Federated States of Gapla focuses on the Montevideo Convention of the Rights and Duties of States criteria for statehood. Under this, a nation has to fulfill four requirements to become a state (Permanent Population, A Defined Territory, Government, and Capacity to Enter in Relations with Other States.) Although Gapla is focused on this, following these requirements does not constitute recognition by Gapla, as that needs to be approved by Parliament and the President.

Etymology

Gapla's name came from thin air, as the current president of the Federated States of Gapla, Wyatt Seungri Baek, decided it was a good and suitable name for the micronation. The "Federated States of" part came on union day when the current president decided to (on March 7, 2019) let states unite into the union. A few months later, the name was added.

History

The Federated States of Gapla originated as the Principality of Gapla, ruled by the current president. Gapla offered royalty/nobility but didn't sell it. Gapla joined the League of Micronations and the Micronations United for Progress in this period. After this period, the people of Gapla declared a new federation, the Federated States of Gapla, formed of 9 states and 6 territories (15 States and Territories). Eventually, seeing that the League of Micronations was focused on micronational war, Gapla left the League of Micronations, as Gapla is against intermicronational war.

As a federation of 15 states, it is very democratic, focuses on the liberty and human rights, and believes all humans are created equal. Even though this is true, the freedom of political parties is exercised and cannot be denied by the president. Although, that doesn't matter, because the president supports the freedom of political parties and political expression.
