Fesmar, is a self-declared, unrecognized country with holdings across Cornwall, England and Ireland. The largest population centre, Penzance (the Capital of the Union) has access to both the Atlantic ocean through the English channel. Fesmar maintains international borders with a single country, that being the United Kingdom.
The territory of Fesmar has been inhabited since the Palaeolithic era after the last ice age. It was during the British Iron Age that the area was inhabited by Cetic tribes known collectively as the Celts. Fesmar declared independence from the United Kingdom on the twelfth of March 2018 as the Kingdom of Fesmar, although it has experienced a number of issues domestically as well as abroad being reorganized several times until the creation of the Union of Fesmarian Socialist Republics.
The modern Fesmarian state was founded on 23 April 2022 with the Act of Union between various Celtic micronations, in Late December 2022 Fesmar transformed from a socialist micronation to a monarchical one while still retaining most of the laws of the UFSR. For more about that period of history see Union of Fesmarian Socialist Republics.
The modern Fesmarian state has also had multiple different names they include:
- The Union (only internally)
- The Fesmarian Union
- The Fesmarian Empire
- The Union of Fesmarian Federated States
- UFFS (Union of Fesmarian Federated States)
- FUFS (Fesmarian Union of Federated States)
- or Fesmar
However in March 2023, a law disbanded all the Federated States in Fesmar making the legal names which mention them legally dubious. De facto they are not used however no law currently exists disallowing their use.
The name Fesmar does not exist in any Celtic language or as a description of a place, rather it was an artificially generated name. However, the more accurate name is Brodtredh which is used by both Cornish and Breton Speakers, a contraction of the Cornish "bro tredh Truru ha Pennsans" or in English, "Land Between Truro and Penzance" which is the region where Fesmar is located. A more formal description of the state is "Emperoureth kernewek genys orth Pennsans" or in English "Cornish empire born of Penzance". Other languages maintain different names for Fesmar, in Irish Gaelic the name is "Ceiltigh-Nua" translating as New Celts, this the same translation as in Scots Gaelic "Ceiltich ùra". The Welsh term for Fesmar is "Celtiai" which roughly translates to Celts

The Government of Fesmar is split between the authority of the Empress and the Authority of the Senate. According to modern Fesmarian law the Senate is mostly subservient to the Empress except in matters of the succession. Any legislation passed by the Senate must be confirmed via Imperial Edict to hold any force of law.

The Imperial Monarchy of Fesmar
The Imperial Monarchy of Fesmar is the primary government body within the Union. They wield virtually absolute authority over the Union. The monarchy was created on 17 March 2018 presumably in the aftermath of the Fesmarian-Speentown & Spingleton War. The initial monarchy was disbanded in the aftermath of the Continuation War on 1 May 2018 but was revived on 1 August 2018 when Kenneth II was proclaimed Emperor during the Fesmarian Civil War. The monarchy has been notoriously unstable going through various titles before the creation of 'Modern Fesmar'.
The title was revived in Modern Fesmar on 30 May 2022 whenever then General Chancellor Catalina C. granted Morwenna Fydtroust the right to use the title 'Her Imperial Grace, Empress of Fesmar'. The title was declared dormant on 9 October 2022 whenever Morwenna left Fesmar's discord server. Following the Constitutional Reforms of December 2022, the Fesmarian Monarchy was restored within the new legal frameworks of Fesmar. Drawing from the authority initially granted to the President in the Act of Union including full rights to make laws and being the sole power to amend the Constitution (Act of Union) although they need the consent of all Federated States in order to preform that action. Although due to the disbandment of the Federated States they now have free reign to amend the Act of Union as they see fit.
The role of Monarch is not hereditary and according to the Senate Decree on the Restoration of the Fesmarian Monarchy the Senate and Monarch must agree on an heir the Archduchess of Trelawny. At the current time, Catalina C. has become the de facto Archduchess having been confirmed in such a role but has not been confirmed by the Senate. If the reign of the current Monarch is to end before such an action is taken, the First Senator of the Imperial Senate will become Regent before the election of a new Monarch can begin. Realistically Catalina has emerged as the only realistic choice to succeed the incumbent Monarch.

The Economy of Fesmar is practically non-existent due to previous political crises and government instability which resulted in the loss of the economically wealthy regions of Fesmar. Prior to the restoration of the Monarchy Fesmar formally used a Planned economy but such a system was never implemented however after the restoration of the Monarchy, such a system was never formally repealed. In 2021 the Fesmarian Senate passed the "The Banknotes Act 2021" formally creating a Fesmarian monetary system with 1, 2, 5, 10, 50 pound denominations however such a system was never enforced. Further attempts at creating a Fesmarian economic system were attempted during the brief Mazanek Chancellorship but was likewise never implemented. Furthermore,
