Slitronia (Pronounced: /slitrəʊəniɑː/) (Estonian: Slitroonia, Estonian pronunciation: [slitroːniɑ]), officially the Great Kingdom of Slitronia (Estonian: Slitroonia Suurkuningriik), is a self-declared sovereign state, commonly known as a micronation to external observers. It is located in Northern Europe and is enclaved by the macronation of Estonia. The territory of Slitronia consists of the mainland and 3 islands on the eastern coast of the Baltic Sea, which have been divided into 3 counties and 1 territory, covering a total area of 0.16 km² (0.062 square miles). Slitronia's capital Parva Navale, and the County of Kalamaja are the largest cities and urban areas in the country. Slitronia declared its independence on April 11, 2020. The official languages spoken are Estonian and English.

Etymology

Before Slitronian declaration of independence, there was a contest to decide on the flag and the name for the nation. The name Slitronia came from the combination of the two highest voted names, being Slijoodu and Trumba.[1]

History

Khuulide Khuttide Khlubi

The flag of the Khuulide Khuttide Khlubi

Khuulide Khuttide Khlubi (literal translation: Cool Guys Club) or sometimes shortened KKK[note 1] was a small school group that existed in the year 2019. It consisted of 4 people, one of which was Johannes, the current Great King of Slitronia. KKK wasn't a micronation, because at the time Johannes or anyone else in the group had no idea what micronationalism was.

The idea of Slitronia

The idea of Slitronia as a micronation came in early 2020 when The Great King Johannes I found the micronational community. Slitronia declared its independence on the 11th of April, 2020.

Direct monarchy era

Up until April 2022, Slitronia was in a state of direct monarchy (meaning the Great King controlled the country directly). This is due to the Imperium not being elected yet. The Great King stated, that he will give up his direct control after the Imperium has been elected.

The first Imperium era

In the beginning of April 2022 an the first Imperium election was held. This marked the end of the direct monarchy era, as the contrll of the country passed onto the Imperium.
