The Free State of Ranshara is an American micronation located in Spokane, Washington. It was founded on August 16, 2012, after Kuhugstan was declared defunct. Despite the new state, traditional Kuhugi culture is preserved in Ranshara.
The word "Ranshara" comes from two Kuhugi words: rane meaning "good" and śara meaning "land".
The Free State of Ranshara was founded on August 16, 2012 in order to create a new micronation in which to retain Kuhugi culture. On August 17, the following day, Prairie View Park was annexed into Ranshara and divided into Northwest District, North District and Northeast District, following with nearby land in the following days. It's currently looking for citizens (dual citizenship is acceptable in Ranshara).
Government and Politics
The Free State of Ranshara is ruled by an absolute despot, titled the President-for-Life, with the advice of the Ransharan people. This form of government is used due to the fact that Ranshara's population is too low to elect a legislature. Accordingly, no political parties exist, although citizens are allowed to profess their ideologies.

Currently, the armed forces enforce the law in Ransharan territory.
