The First Republic of Bernada, or simply Bernada, was a self-declared sovereign nation, or a micronation in Seoul, South Korea's capital city. It was populated by 10 people in its final census.
'Bernada' is from an imaginary Caribbean island country that Lee created. The name Bernada was based on the real island country Grenada.
The Seoul region in which Bernada was located was a highly valuable, important, and a sought for area in South Korean history, as it was the capital of Baekje, Joseon, and current South Korea. Daniel Lee, a Korean elementary student, moved here and began creating micronations after his discovery of Sealand and Austenasia. In late October 2017 he decided to make his own micronation himself. He decided to call it Sezentrania and began writing the constitution. He then decided to change the name to Bernada. However, in March 2018, the republic's leader, Daniel Lee, was involved in the Andanian legitimacy scandal, where he decided to dissolve the republic.
Bernadian democracy is a direct democracy indicated by the constitution. The president is elected by a popular vote every six months. The president is the head of state and government, and appoints a vice president, who is the president's official speaker, and becomes the president if the president leaves office by impeachment, death, or resigns. The president also appoints the Ministers of Culture and Leisure, Finances, Home and Demographics, and Foreign Affairs, and Security and Safety. The president is the head of the State and Government.
