The Democratic Republic of Filostonia is a micronation located in the Sorrenian Federation. It is one of 6 states that are Semi-autonomous.

Flag

The flag background is green, representing the lush nature of the land, as the majority of Filistonia consists of farmland and forestry. The central emblem also represents this, also showing the strong socialist elements inside Filistonia.

History

The Democratic Republic of Telania was created on the 2nd of November 2013. A Sorrenian state, Telania was founded by the President at the time, Lewis Wild. Lewis' short rein as president ended soon after it began due to his lack of commitment and interest in his role. Upon his resignation, no elections took place to find a replacement, leaving Telania without a leader, until, on the 8th of May 2014, Sorrenian President Miles Of Sorrenia, personally elected UK born, Matthew Of Sorrenia to take control of the state. Since then, an updated flag has been assigned to announce new leadership in Telania and new territories have since been approved by the Sorrenian government.

On the 1st of June 2014, Matthew Of Sorrenia was granted permission to change the name of Telania. After much thought and consideration, the state was officially renamed, Filostonia (from the Greek word 'Fílo', meaning friend). This change of name also marked a new era in the states history, following the recent change in leadership.

Geography

Though the Democratic Republic of Filostonia, consists of mostly farmland, Newton Hall, a residential estate in southern Filostonia, was previously the largest in Europe. Newton Hall sits 2 miles (3.2 km) outside Durham City Center and has rapidly increased it's population since the 1960's due to it's convenience and affordable suburban housing. Newton Hall also has two shopping parades and a public library. There are two public houses on Newton Hall, the Jovial Monk, built in 1980 and the Newton Grange, built in 2006. The estate's first pub, the Newton Hall, was built in 1968 but was demolished in August 2009. A private nursing home now stands on the site.

Another place of interest which resides within the Democratic Republic of Filostonia is the Arnison Centre, though since extended and heavily modified since it was constructed in the 1990's, the Arnison Centre is home to many popular commercial buildings such as Sainsbury's, Macdonald's, Homebase and most recently, Marks and Spencers. The Arnison Centre provides fearce competition to Durham city centre as it offers both convience and a mass wealth of free parking. At current, plans to extend the Arnison Centre are in production.
