Badis is the moroccan name for the Peñón de Vélez de la Gomera, a former spanish colony in morocco.



In 1508, the region was occupied by pirates, this lasted until spain pushed them out in 1578 after the Battle of Alcácer Quibir [1]

During the independence movement in the 1950's spain held onto several territories, one of which was the Peñón de Vélez de la Gomera, a castle island built during the 1400's.

Direct Colonial Rule

During early 2020 marquette officially claimed the island as a colony, this was prior to the marquette colonial administration being put to law, as such it's status had to change

Personal union and De Jure independence

Due to a clause in the Document for Colonial Organization Under Marquette, Badis could no longer be claimed fully as a colony, however Marquette did not wish to return the territory to spain or morocco, both governments have been heavily criticized by Marquetten officials. The Grand Duchess settled on making it a De Jure Personal union, without changing anything about administration.

2022 reforms

in 2022 the government was majorly restructured to have even greater self rule, including the division of the Imperial council and General assembly, and the creation of the role of caliph replacing the former "Regent"

Geography and climate

This Was an alternative flag of badis, it was proposed alongside the current version, but lost the popular vote.

Peñón de Vélez de la Gomera is located 119 km (73.94 mi) southeast of Ceuta. It was a natural island in the Alboran Sea until 1934, when a huge thunderstorm washed large quantities of sand into the short channel between the island and the African continent. The channel was turned into a tombolo and the island became a peninsula, connected to the Moroccan coast by an 85 m (278.87 ft) long sandy isthmus, which is the world's shortest single land-border segment. With a length of 400 m (1,312.34 ft) northwest-southeast and a width of up to 100 m (328.08 ft), it covers about 19,000 m2 or 1.9 ha.
