Verd'landian Republic of Vladislavia (Verd'landian: Vẽrdɩlandiɩ Respublika Vladislaviɩa; Czech: Zelenozemská Republika Vladislávie), commonly known as Vladislavia — is the micronation which was created as entity representing a fictional universe of country called Verd'land. But after a year of existing it has maximally divided from fictional base, becoming more independent project of completely new nation of real and existing Verd'landians. Despite Vladislavia is created, it wasn't declared at any territory and actually stays to be the "ghost state" - temporary virtual country.

Having changed a lot of planned locations, Republic is now considered not independent but culturally autonomous entity of Czech Republic where its founder will probably study, work and live.

The capital of Vladislavia is Ziegler. Claiming of areas unowned by citizens is banned and due to this Vladislavia is a micronation which territory is not exceed the limits of separated private houses and their yards.

Verd'landian Republic states that it is a member of United Nations, European Union and eurozone.

Etymology

"Vladislav" is the name of state's founder. He considers that despite he tried not to call anything with his own name it is highly acceptable due to its noble sounding.

In the first days of this country's existence there another name was in use: the "Independent State of Verd'land" (Early Verd'landian: Nїodэpindiї Deržava Vэrdїlandiїa), but soon it was renamed.

In community of Russian micronationalists the insulting nicknames "Vladislutia" or "Vladifuckia" (Russian: "Владибляндия") are frequently used.

Politics

Vladislavia is an unitary state, governed by Malgart together with unicameral advisory parliament called "Riksdag". The last one is located in Ziegler and divided at commissariats conducted by commissars, and each commissariat can contain unlimited amount of its own departments. Rixdag consists of five commissariats affecting following areas: Internal affairs, Foreign affairs, Infrastructure and transport, Defense and also Culture with national identity.

By Larmiga, Vladislavia is Republic - though it is not correct. The same document points that there are no political parties in Vladislavia, and Malgart has de-facto unlimited power and can be changed by his/her wish or in case of legal referendum only, and besides this, description of Malgart's identity makes him/her similar to monarch. As Vladislav Chokin states, authoritarianism and absence of parties is necessary because he can't allow somebody to move Vladislavia away from original project.

The interesting fact is, that despite huge impact on country Malgart is not a head commander of national armed forces - however he still has rights to lead them.

Law

The main law of Vladislavia is "Larmiga", which is actually a shortened analogue of constitution. Verd'landian Republic hasn't another juridical documents and plans to use the laws of Czech Republic.

Border control

Republic assumes the real control of entering and leaving persons. For that purposes a passport of any member of United Nations can be used. Besides this, Vladislavia recognizes the passports of Abkhazia, Artsakh, Kosovo, Northern Cyprus, Taiwan, Transnistria, SMOM and World Passport.

International relationships

Vladislavia (like Socialist Albania) is quite misanthropic and enclosed country with doctrine of resistance against of external aggressors. Because of original ideology, which is big mix of different and, sometimes, incompatible principles, this microstate has a lot of opponents and enemies, like religious activists, conservationists, fighters for traditional values, and nationalists. On 21st April 2017 the "War of Senses" - the conflict between Vladislavia and all notable Russian micronations - had started, and it was juridically recognized 3 months later.

In the beginning of may of 2017 year, Vladislavia became a neutral country, which is not accept membership in micronational commonwealths and unions, and isn't accept diplomatic propositions if don't start them itself.

National holidays

Vladislavia have changed some days to celebrate. Finally it accepted 8 holidays: 2 international unpopular, 1 international unpopular, 2 Czech, 1 "pride", 1 state and 1 ethnic days:

  • Greeting - the Verd'landian ethnic holiday of spring meeting. Its exact date is under the question - still unknown the better day of celebration: the first day of March (as the first day of spring) or the first sunny day of the same month.
  • Defiance day - is the copy of the "International Conscientious Objectors' Day", which meaning is extended by including of cosmopolitan sense or ideology of insubordination to the ideologically totalitarian states.
  • LIDICE - is common mournful Czech day of Lidice victims remembrance.
  • Lotamism Day - is the projected pride-day for lotamists. It factually became the successor of Antihomophobic day which used to exist earlier.
  • Day of Republic - day of Vladislavia's foundation.
  • Unity Day - day of Czechoslovakia's creation.

The interesting pecularity is that every holiday requires different flags to be flown in Republic, and state flag of Vladislavia itself is not frequently used.

Administrative divisions

See also: Administrative map of the Republic

Verd'landian Republic has original division's policy which can be described as "filial". By Larmiga, any kind of public territory, or territory where citizens of Republic are absent, can't be claimed - so the only supposed legal territories of Republic are private houses. Besides them, Vladislavia has only two other kinds of entities: "Responsibility zones" and consulates.

Regular entities

Vladislavia is divided at lands (Verd'landian: landɩat), localitets (lokalitetat) and towns (kiragat), where "lands" are common external localities, "localitets" are districts, and "towns" are actual independent territories of Republic.

Other entities

"Responsibility zone" is the area which is not an actual part of Vladislavia, but the last one has its impact there or has rights to partially lead them. Examples of this zone are commonly the public places: like parks or transit infrastructure. That entities are usually getting indicated by text labels and flags. Border control and visa regime are absent.

Consulates of Verd'landian Republic of Vladislavia can be located everywhere, including apartments which are actually can't be the part of country. Consulate is responsible for dealing with public, representation of Vladislavia in foreign countries and issuing of visas.

Economy

At this moment, Vladislavia having only 5€ in reserves is one of the world's poorest micronations. The reason is in territory absence and total impossibility to find any profit source. If it has so, the country's model of economy would be the mixed one.

Analogue of Verd'landian national currency called "Mirtyn" (Verd'landian: Mirtỹnɩ) was cancelled in 19th May 2017, as there wasn't any way of its printing and legalization. This currency was replaced by Euro.

The role of central bank is given to organisation called the "National Fund of Vladislavia" (Verd'landian: Nacỹonaliɩ Fondul Vladislavielor). It collects money in Euro and Czech koruna. Fund is technically can perform the role of exchanger and creditor, but this purpose is not confirmed by any of directives or standards.

The only planned direction of economy's development is the tourism, as Prague is a large touristic center of Europe. By some sources[3], 7 million tourists can visit this city per year. But because even 1% of tourists can't be fit into daily schedule, the regular daily norms were shortened to 5 groups and 10 single persons, what means the minimal profit to the tune of 50€ per day, 1500€ per month and 18000€ per year. All collected money will have going strictly to the National Fund.

Demographics

In 18th October 2017 year, Verd'landian Republic had cancelled the initial order in area of citizenships, which contained 2 kinds of citizenship. Now, they are united in one, which can be proved by passport.

Citizenship doesn't give the right to live in Vladislavia. This issue is solved by leadership of towns.

Languages

Official language is Verd'landian - it is the only accepted language for documents. Still, the other languages can be used legally in other areas of country's life.

Religion

Larmiga anchors Verdism (Verd'landian: Kliregul) as prioritized religion. However, Vladislavia is positioned as secular state which bans propaganda of religious movements - especially the radical ones. The states where religious law prevails or replaces the secular laws, is criticized by Rixdag and considered as destructive countries.

Culture

The Swedish semla - is the actual prototype of siltarɩ.

Cuisine

Verd'landian cuisine stays to be the "black hole" of this fictional universe, but still some recipes are existing - like "dalagorɩ" (seafood soup) or "siltarɩat" (buns with whipped cream).
