Monmark was established on 26 December 2017 as the Kingdom of Monmark with the two founders debating who should be the first King, David Augustus won out. The first months of existence were spent making a few laws here and there but no attempt at a constitution was ever made. In September of 2018, a brief civil war was fought between the King and Prime Minister after the Prime Minister declared war on the nation of Rockfoxia, after a few days fighting, both sides reunited.
From then on until the November of 2019 Monmark was in a state of dormancy, in November the King began a series of reforms declaring himself Emperor, and soon Grand Emperor, in that time the title of Prime Minister was changed to Grand Chancellor. Over the succeeding months, Monmark was reformed more and more. On the 29th of May 2020, the constitution was ratified by the Grand Emperor. On May 31 2020, Monmark entered into diplomatic relations for the first time joining the League of Independent Nations and establishing an embassy within the Nexan Republic.
Monmarkian Golden Age
During what the Government has called the "Almendria Conflict" Monmark never fought in the war, but did side diplomatically against Almendria, condemning the Alendrian Government after their cancelled elections and blocking of Ozikstani independence, earning an embassy within Ozikstan. On 14 August 2020, a new Constituent Country was added to the Empire by a vote of Parliament named the Kingdom of Paland, with the citizen who obtained the land being crowned as its first King. The next day the Grand Emperor changed his title to Emperor in an attempt to be more modest. On 30 September 2020, the Convention of the Americas was signed with the Arthurian Empire, the Nexan Republic and the Confederal Republic of Sunseva. In this treaty, HI&RM David Augustus I, was recognized as "King of the Texans". On 5 October 2020, the Green Free State which was a micronation to the northeast of Monmark ruled by David Augustus, petitioned for annexation into Monmark, which was accepted, the Green Free State was then divided into the Kingdom of the Highlands, Grand Duchy of Neu-Begonie, and the Grand Duchy of the Lowlands. On 25 October 2020, the Emperor declared a golden age for Monmark following exponential growth since late September.
The Royal Standard and Imperial Standard are used interchangeably, although it is common courtesy to use the Imperial Standard as the official flag of Monmark, and to fly in most situations while the Royal Standard is used mostly in situations involving the Royal Family. Constituent Countries may have their own flags and royal standards but they fly below the Imperial Standard.
The governance of Monmark is conducted via a semiconstitutional monarchy with the Emperor as head of state, while the Grand Chancellor is head of government. The legislature of Monmark is the Imperial Parliament, a tricameral entity composed of the Grand Imperial Council as the upper chamber, and the Imperial Senate, and House of Nobles as the lower chambers. The Grand Imperial Council is made up of Councillors(previously Chancellors) appointed by the Emperor from among the nobility, with the Grand Chancellor being a part of this council as its head while also being appointed by the Emperor, Councillors have two-year terms with a limit of nine. The Imperial Senate is made up of elected Senators serving one-year terms with a limit of ten, Senators are elected via Party List Instant Run-off voting, with the number of Senators decided by the number of Constituent Countries. The House of Nobles has the same power and number of Representatives as the Senate but is unelected and rather appointed by the Federal Monarchs of each Constituent Country, with one Representative per Constituent Country.
