Joseph Puglisi is the 4th and current President of Tiana. He also serves as Chairman of the Communist Party of Tiana, and has served numerous terms as both President and Prime Minister of the Republic of Tiana. He has been a notable political figure in Tiana throughout the nation's existence as an independent state, and an equally notable figure intermicronationally.


Puglisi was born in 1996, on Long Island, New York, to working-class parents of Italian ancestry.

Puglisi's interest in micronationalism and nation projects began at a young age, but he entered the micronational community in 2010. Puglisi's micronational career has involved political roles in numerous micronations, including the Republic of Tiana, Sultanate of Hakka, Kingdom of Zealandia, Kingdom of Juclandia, State of Sandus, Zonian Confederacy, Grand Duchy of Flandrensis, Kozuc Khanate, Democratic People's Republic of Danesland, Federal Republic of BlueSkies and Students' Isocratic Oligarchy of Yabloko. He has held administrative positions in numerous micronational discussion outlets, including MicroWiki - a website, MicroPub - a Skype group, and MicroGroup - a Facebook group.

Political views

Joseph's Puglisi's position on the political compass

Joseph Puglisi has described himself as both a Marxist and a libertarian socialist for years. He has been known to be critical of both capitalism and statism - which he describes as "inextricably linked". Puglisi is also an ardent internationalist, and has criticized nationalism as "short-sighted, divisive, and dangerous". He is also firmly socially libertarian - being a fervent proponent of civil liberties, gay rights, gun rights, freedom of religion, and unlimited freedom of speech.

While Puglisi has been critical of modern American domestic and foreign policy, Puglisi has praised the United States of the 18th and 19th centuries as being "historically a bastion of freedom... a haven for radicals and freethinkers... far ahead of its time, in comparison to the despotic monarchies which plagued Europe at the time".

Religious views

Puglisi has described his religious views variously as atheism, agnosticism, and secular humanism. Puglisi has cited the New Atheist movement as influential to his views on the relationship between religious and public affairs. Despite being generally critical of religion, Puglisi has stated his support for a form of "materialist spirituality", and described spirituality as a "deeply personal matter".
