The People's Federation of Adonia, or the Adonian People's Federation , commonly known as Adonia, is a self-declared sovereign state but is more commonly referred to as a micronation by external observers founded by Andrew Franson on 7 July 2020. Adonia is a nation made up of various land plots in Illinois, Michigan, and the United Kingdom.. National Languages of Adonia include English, German,Polish, and Ukranian. The People's Federation of Adonia is a Adonian Socialist society, being the first nation and first micronation to follow Adonian Guided Socialism. The capital of Adonia is Longhorn, located within Illinois.
The Illinois Sovetist Socialist Republic or The ISSR was a micronation located in Mokena, Illinois and was founded on 14 September 2019. The ISSR is considered the precursor state to Adonia, due to the fact that the ISSR is considered to be "one of the best micronations I (Andrew Franson) have ever led. Even if it was mediocre." by Andrew Franson. The ISSR had renamed from Illinois Soviet Socialist Republic to Illinois Sovetist Socialist Republic on 3 January 2020. It would dissolve on March 18th following incidents in early winter 2020. Though, ISSR Nostalgia is apparent in Adonia.
On 20 April 2020, The Illinois Free Republic was formed, the organization was a continuation of the ISSR. The nation founded the "Harmony Accord" a organisation meant to bring micronations together regardless of ideology or ideals. The Harmony Accord was disbanded around mid to the end of May 2020. The nation was disbanded in May following a lack of support from the leadership. The Democratic People's Republic of Adonia was created soon after and was the earliest form of Adonia. Adonia joined the Crimson Socialist Republic just before it dissolved in June 2020.
First Adonian Months
On 7 July, Foundation Day, The PRA was formed but known as the Adonian Free Sovetist Republic, with the help of Višeslav Brienović. However, Following accusations of attempting to turn the nation into a monarchy, Brienović and all the people he used to do this were removed. The Workers Party of Adonia took over on July 18, 2020, Effectively making Adonia socialist. The creation of a constitution for Adonia began on August 1 and would finish a few days later. Following the creation of the Adonian Constitution, Adonia had a quick rise in stability and, On 8 August 2020, Andrew Franson began to base Adonia off of Germany, Poland and Russia culturally and historically and ideologically. This would then make Adonia a themed micronation. Adonia had also gained its first commune, known as the Kalamazoo Commune (Now Kalamazoo Governorate), on 8 August 2020.
Post Adonian Foundation Months
On 1 October 2020, three Adonian flags and one five foot flag pole were stolen. Following this event, patriotism inside the Premier and its citizens increased and was noticeable by many outside observers. Following the October 1st Incident, Adonia began to refocus on building itself up. Adonia gained its last commune from 2020 in November, which was known as the Commune of Roosevelt. Adonia would begin to open up itself to the public in December 2020 with RadioAdonia, The People's Scout League (WIP), and the Adonian Press Organization. On 6 December 2020, Friendship and Unity Square was opened. This would be Adonias first official monument.
The 2021 Period
The 2021 Period had started off with much success. Adonia gained two more communes (which would be later dropped in April) and its programs had proven to be successful. However, in the middle of February, the second inactivity crisis had occurred, where major inactivity had plagued the Adonian Nation. As of a result, nothing was done in Adonia, and the Commune of Edes announced itself disbanded in March 2021. On 27 April 2021, Andrew Franson had decided to drop most communes except the Kalamazoo Governorate. Andrew Franson said this in his statement on it. The People's Scout League (A Boy Scout/Komsomol Styled Group) was launched on 1 June 2021 following the completion of the Handbook on the 31 May 2021. It was founded by Andrew Franson, who saw it as an opportunity to localize Adonia and assist the community at the same time. He also saw it as a chance to "Be an Adonian Patriot and assist the community at the same time". As of the last update of this article, it is currently an organization on pause because of the Adonian Transitional Period
"After much consideration, Two Communes have been dropped following concerns of keeping up with a workload, as well as the fact that Adonia worked amazingly with just two communes. Adonia needs to properly develop before it can take a huger workload. And the added fact of my current crisis of inactivity, I need to slow down, Recoup, and get back to it. Back when Adonia was just the Kalamazoo Commune, Things worked amazingly. And I need to continue that before I go further. The idea of communes will be suspended until further notice. All mentions of Communes on both the page of Kolkatism, The Adonian Microwiki page, as well as the official documents of Adonia, will remain." This changed once the Commune of Roosevelt was formed by Otto Gillespie Birch in August 2021.
Following the vast second inactivity crisis, The Commune of Roosevelt was formed on 10 August, and legislative work of vast quantities came back to Adonia. Just a month later, Adonia worked on hosting the Longhorn International Summit (now called The International Solidarity Conference) and hosted it on the 14 September. During and after the Summit, Andrew Franson got the inspiration to create the Solidarity Front organization. So, on 30 September, it was created.
The Adonian Transitional Period
In late November 2021, Andrew had discovered that he had lost his belief in left wing-economics, and that he felt brainwashed by certain people into being left-wing[By whom?], despite him not being left-wing. Andrew had been studying right-wing Political Theory for months previous, and had enough with what he said was "lying to himself and everyone else". Andrew, with 100% approval by the People's Politburo, had announced his intent to enact 'The Adonian Transitional Period'. The Adonian Transitional Period has an aim to leave its left-wing politics behind in favour of a Centrist, to Centre-Right Identity in order to move Adonia to be more inclined with the actual political beliefs of its citizens, the government, and head of state. During the first parts of the transitional phase, Otto Gillespie Birch resigned from his post, and announced the Commune of Roosevelt disbanded on 26 November. The period started out with a change in Adonian Symbolism, particularly, the Adonian flag had also changed. Adonia also aims to change its ideology and political system as well to be more in line with what it should be. Adonia would then rename itself to the Adonian Federation, or the Federation of Adonia, on 26 November. After this, the Workers Party of Adonia renamed itself to the Adonian Torch Party, which now follows Adonian-Republicanism as its official ideology. The Torch Party released the '4 Fundamentals of the Adonian Masses' on the 28th of November, which is now the guiding fundamentals of the Adonian Transitional Period, and aims to be the Fundamentals of the Torch party. Adonia also worked to change its templates and policies by following various plans and paths for it. On 21/01/2022, Andrew Franson declared himself a Dictator with Emergency Powers. He promised a 'New Deal', which aims to revive Adonia and improve upon Adonia without the slowed processes that the Legislature had allowed. These Emergency Powers were set to be in effect until Adonia is actively stable and active. Exactly 6 days later, a Citizenship form was enacted in Adonia that allowed for people to apply for Adonian Citizenship, with minor limitation, at any time. 14 days after the proclamation of emergency powers, the Kalamazoo Governorate was disbanded following the loss of communication and lack of activity in the Governorate. This marked the end of a year and 6 months of territory in Michigan for Adonia.
The Spring-Summer Period
Just weeks later, a period of crisis lasting 6 days began after Andrew had completely isolated himself from the community and Adonia. During this time, the Adonian Discord, Twitter Pages, Website, and much more, were completely archived and forgotten about. However, after facing struggle, Andrew returned on 12/04/2022, utilizing the statement "Adonia lived, Adonia lives, Adonia will live". Despite this statement, however, Andrew did not become anymore active within Adonia until June 2022, when Adonian Guided Socialism was brought back.
In late June, 2022, Andrew officially brought back Adonian Socialism after realizing that the Adonian Transitional Period had destroyed his own motivation for Adonia and had nearly killed Adonia. Following the return of Adonian Guided Socialism, Andrew immediately enacted that all current Adonian Symbolism from the Transitional Period is to be kept and used in order to overcome a complete draw back to Adonia's history as a People's Republic.
Within the first few weeks of the return to Socialism, Adonia signed 2 micronational treaties, began plans for The Intermicronational Unity Summit, began efforts to revive RadioAdonia, and began to restart all localization efforts. Adonia also began to plan meetups with varying micronationalists in the years 2024-2025.
Politics and government
The Adonian Government runs under the ideology known as Adonian Guided Socialism. Each commune is able to elect their governors yet that has not taken place since late July 2020. Adonian Guided Socialism is the national ideology of the Federation of Adonia. Adonian Guided Socialism holds beliefs that are similar to Centre-Left to Left-Wing Ideologies mainly devolving from Democratic Socialism, Libertarian Socialism, and some ideas from The Juche Idea and Mao Zedong Thought. It holds the idea that the People themselves are the Revolutionary Vanguard and they must fight to realize their own destiny by establishing a society completely led and followed by the People. Through establishing complete People's Management of society, the government, and the economy. The established end goal of Adonian Guided Socialism isn't communism, but instead a self-sustained Market Socialist Economy inspired by Libertarian Socialist ideology.
The Adonian Government is headed by the Adonian Torch Party, an Adonian Socialist party within the People's Federation of Adonia. The Adonian Torch Party has been through 1 rename, but has been in charge of Adonia since 18 July, 2020.
The Adonian Government also focuses on the idea of Neutrality in micronational issues or micronational crises in order to protect Adonian Interests, the Adonian future and the mental health of Adonians by avoiding unnecessary drama.
Populi Council and the Party System
Adonia has one party, that being Adonian Torch Party with the party holding control over the nation's legislature, the Populi Council. The Council has a leader, that being the head of the Adonian Torch Party and holds the Governorship of the Adonian Governorates as the members of this body.

Adonian Affiliation/Participation in Organizations
Though originally an idea that was barred from Adonia, The idea of joining a micronational organization is a concept that is now being explored as it could possibly assist Adonia in its protection of itself, and or its allies. Adonia’s first organization that it became apart of was the CONPACT, but Adonia left it following inactivity issues. After The Longhorn International Summit on 14 September, Adonia formed the Solidarity Front on 30 September 2021, leaving after a mental health crisis Andrew Franson faced in April 2022

The Localization Plan was in force for the fall of 2020 and was deemed a failure. The Plan was to localize Adonia as much as possible and to get it out there. It was to first start in the Longhorn Area with the Premier's Family. This had failed horribly as they either didn't care or viewed Andrew as crazy. The next part of the plan was to localize with students in Andrew's School. This would create minor success but failures across the board. Very few had any interest in Adonia. Many, however, viewed Andrew as weird and would bully/make fun of him because of it. The plan was halted before the 3rd and final step was taken.
The FUS Project
The FUS Project, or the Friendship and Unity Square Project was a project to create a monument in the Adonian capitol of Longhorn. The Square's Purpose is to show the world that the Adonian People are stronger together and that Adonian unity is unbreakable. It is planned to be used as a place for speeches and other ceremonies. The Friendship and Unity Square is also used mostly during holidays and other days that commemorate lost ones as well.
RadioAdonia is a podcast service that serves Adonia. RadioAdonia was created by Andrew Franson with the goal of getting the common Adonian Voice out into the world, helping listeners understand Adonia and micronations as a whole. RadioAdonia began uploading episodes on 4 October, 2021 but created a continuous uploading schedule in early February, 2021. As of the last update of this article about Adonia, RadioAdonia is on pause following the start of the Transitional Period.
The first update of Friendship and Unity Square
On the 24 March 2021, Andrew Franson began an update on Friendship and Unity Square. The first part of the update was to plant an Adonian Flag at Friendship and Unity Square permanently. This idea was a success. The update of Friendship and Unity Square was a major success, Allowing the Adonian Flag to be planted permanently outside. The update finished when it was planned, that being the 6 April 2021.
The Longhorn International Summit
