Hasanistan was initially establish on 7 September 2011 as a self-proclaimed independent republic. On 11 August 2016, Hasanistan was annexed by the Empire of Pavlov following the ratification of the Act of the Annexation of Hasanistan. Hasanistan is a culturally Turkic territory, an aspect of its culture that has heavy influence over the political nature of the country. This is mostly seen in the state ideology of Hasanistan known as Seljukism, which follows the belief that Hasanistan is the modern continuation of the Seljuk Empire.

Etymology

The ethnonym Hasani is derived from the Arabic word Hassan (حسن) meaning handsome or fine and the Persian -stan suffix means "Land of-" or "Place of", thus the literal translation of Hasanistan is "Land of Hasanis". Hasaniye and Hasani-eli are less commonly used, both having similar translations. The term "Hasani" is mostly used to refer to ethnic Hasanis while "Hasanistani" refers to citizens of Hasanistan. Hasanistan also shares it's name with the town of Hasani, Bosnia-Herzegovina.

History

People's republic

On 7 September 2011, Hasan Çakar declared the independence of the Hasani people and established the Hasanistan People's Republic. Hasan Çakar declared himself Supreme Leader of Hasanistan and gave his brother Tanju Çakar the positions of Admiral of the Hasani Revolutionary Militia and Head Adviser to the Supreme Leader. The Hasanistan People's Republic laid claim to an area on the Kazakh-Kyrgyz border and an island near Bahrain. On 22 May 2012, Hasanistan opened it's government website[1] and declared a policy of armed neutrality. Minutes later, it also renamed itself the "Republic of Hasanistan".

Single-party era

In November 2012, Supreme Leader Hasan Çakar's regime faced its first political crisis after Admiral Tanju Çakar accused him of "anti-Semitism" and "supporting terrorism" after he made a statement on the government website in support of Hamas during the 2012 Israeli invasion of the Gaza Strip. The crisis lead to the formation of a pro-democracy movement within Hasanistan. On 25 November, Hasanistan became a full member of the World Union.[2] On 5 May 2013, Hasanistan's non-partisan hereditary dictatorship was reformed into a one-party state and the Secessionist Party of Hasanistan was established to become the state's ruling party.[3] On 14 April 2013, the World Union dissolved and Hasanistan subsequently hold a short period of membership in its short-lived successor, the Aryavart-led Association of Profilic Micronations (APM). In early June 2013, the largest political crisis began following the resignation of Admiral Tanju Çakar and his subsequent seizure of control of the Hasani Revolutionary Militia. The rouge admiral gave the regime of Hasan Çakar an ultimatum to step down and allow democratic reform or face a coup d'état attempt. The coup d'état attempt was narrowly averted and a compromise was made as Hasan Çakar agreed to reform the country into a democratic republic.[4]

Early democratic era

On June 10th 2013, Hasanistan held the first presidential election in the country following the fall of the single-party regime. Two new political parties were established for the election, Tanju Çakar's left-wing Progressive Party and the conservative, pro-Greek Peace and Unity Party. Hasan Çakar was barred from running in the upcoming election, however the Secessionist Party still put a candidate forward. Tanju Çakar and the Progressive Party defeated the other two candidates and became the first democratically-elected president of Hasanistan. Tanju Çakar kept Hasan Çakar as the Supreme Leader due to his experience and diplomatic skills. In July, Hasanistan established a political union with two micronations, the District of Cleveland and the Kingdom of Mouzilo. However the union quickly fell apart following disapproval over Mouzilo's attempts to centralize the union into a single federal state. On September 29th 2013, elections were held to choose who would hold the newly formed position of prime of Batyr. The ruling Progressive Party decided to field Owen Lam as their candidate, while the Secessionist Party decided to field their former presidential candidate Nico Fors. Shady Morsi of the newly established Independence Party also decided stand as a candidate in the election. The election initially ended in a tie between Nico Fors and Owen Lam, however the Independence Party transferred their votes to Nico Fors allowing him to win the election. The defeat faced in the Batyr election was a major loss for Tanju Çakar's plans for political reform.

Political polarization

At some point in late 2013, the Islamic Party of Hasanistan was established. Although efforts were made to ban the party by the Secessionist Party and the Progressive Party, it continued to exist due to legal loopholes which prevented discrimination against religious organizations. On March 9th 2014, the republic became a federal republic and expanded its territorial claims to include grasslands around Batyr and an island off the coast of Algeria. Between August 23rd and 24th 2014, Hasanistan's second presidential election was held. The leaders of the Independence Party and the Islamic Party both fielded candidates to challenge the incumbent Tanju Çakar, however failed to defeat him as he won a second term. Although president Tanju Çakar had managed to win two terms, he was heavily disliked by the opposition members of the Supreme Council, especially by the Independence Party which had managed to become the main opposition. During November 2014, Pavlovian mercenary Deniz Pamukli was invited by anti-Tanju politicians Hasan Çakar and Shady Morsi to help them plan overthrow the government of Tanju Çakar. The three putschists planned to establish their own government with Pamukli as the self-proclaimed generalissimo, however the attempted coup d'état quickly failed and Pamukli was exiled. Despite their involvement in the failed coup d'état, Hasan Çakar and Shady Morsi did not receive any punishment. Following the failure of the coup d'état, Shady Morsi and his Independence Party began promoting separatist in North Hasanistan in an effort to counter Tanju's rising power. Morsi's new separatist rhetoric caused Hasan Çakar to stray from his sphere of influence. On August 9th 2016, Hasanistan held its third presidential election. Former dictator Hasan Çakar defeated president Tanju Çakar and the other two candidates to become the second president of Hasanistan. Following his election, Hasan Çakar managed to reconcile with Shady Morsi and end the two years of political dispute faced following the failed coup d'état.

Pavlovian dependency

Following Hasan Çakar's election as president, Hasanistan was offered to become a protectorate of the Empire of Pavlov by Pavlov's emperor His Imperial Majesty Iskender IV. On August 11th 2016, Hasan Çakar and Emperor Iskender IV signed the Act of the Annexation of Hasanistan and Hasanistan was quickly integrated into the Empire of Pavlov. Hasanistan continued to be governed as a democracy until October 2016, when it reformed many aspects of its political structure to adapt to Pavlov's complex political system. On October 7th 2016, the Hasani regional government enacted the Shahdom Act of 2016 which saw the end of the democratic republic and the formation of a semi-absolute monarchy under the crown of Pavlov. As well as becoming a monarchy, the Hasani legislature was dissolved and replaced by a viceroy to rule under the Emperor's supervision. His Imperial Majesty Iskender IV selected İsmetcan Saraç as the viceroy of Hasanistan. On November 26th 2016, Pavlov signed the Treaty of Iskenderabat with the Chiefdom of Dachenia which handed over the territory of Konraq-Kazakhizia to Hasanistan.
