Jusin Republic (IPA: [tsiuɕin rɪˈpʌblɪk]) or the Jusin Gong-Hwa-Guk (Korean: 쥬신 공화국), is the first micronation in Korea to have its own website. It has territories scattered across the Korean Peninsula, having every citizen's home as its territory.
It was established on January 1, 2018, claiming succession of the 'Great New Jusin Absolute Monarchy Federal Kingdom'. It went under major reforms during late August 2018. Jusin is an attending member of MicroCon 2019, and is the first Asian micronation to do so.
Jusin is currently the most active Korean micronation communicating with non-Korean micronations. It has contacted many others across Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, VK, and other social media platforms.

The name Jusin is known as an ancient kingdom of Korea, although historians dispute over its existence. However, Jusin Republic did not take its name from the ancient itself. Rather, it comes from the claims of succession of the 'Great New Jusin Absolute Monarchy Federal Kingdom(NJFK)'. No official approvals were made by the NJFK or by its remaining citizens, but the Jusin government still claims succession by itself.
Inspiration and preparation
The formation of the Jusin republic was long prepared by Minsung Kwon. He first thought about the idea of establishing an 'Unified Korean Micronation' during early 2016, but due to personal difficulties and lack of time, he was not able to participate in the two major 'Unification Plan's. However, both unifications failed, and Korean Micronations no longer tried to unify themselves. As a result, Kwon decided to make a Micronation that could attract other Micronationists, so they could be unified under one flag without federalizing several Micronations. This idea led him to establish Jusin, and he started preparing for it during December 2017.
Kwon created a establishment committee for Jusin two other Micronationists, Ha Un-yong and Kim Gyeom-bi. The first constitution was completed on December 29, 2017, and on December 30th, Minsung Kwon became the successful candidate for the president of Jusin, to be in office 2 days later.
On January 1, 2018, president Kwon announced the establishment of the Jusin Republic.
Jusin is a constitutional republic, with President acting as the head of state. The head of multilingual government is the Chairman of the Council of National Affairs(CNA), and the President currently holds the additional post as Chairman according the law.
The executive branch is led by the CNA, which consists of the Chairman(President), Chancellors, Ministers, and Directors. Under CNA are two lingual sub-governments: Korean division and the English division. Each division is headed by the Chancellor, and each Chancellor takes turn serving as President for 1 year. The divisions have departments for administering pratical affairs.
The legislative branch is consisted solely of the People's Assembly. All citizens who applied for the legislative participation rights can take part as member of the Assembly. This shows the characteristics of the Jusin legislative branch, which focuses on direct democracy. All citizens can take part in discussing national matters and new bills, as well as vote for passing or opposing the bill.
The judiciary branch is led by the Supreme court, and can have the Committee for Dispute Arbitration as a temporary element. All disputes and conflicts pass the CDA for pre-trial settlements, but if the conflict is not solved, the case is taken to court for trial.

Law and order
Jusin is known for its abundance in laws, with every aspect of the nation regulated by laws and orders. Major laws such as the Constitution and the Criminal code were inspired by its Korean counterparts, while independently made laws also exist.
Jusin territories consist of residences of every citizen, which makes too complicated for each residence to be assigned a separate division. As a result, Jusin administrative divisions are assigned by which Korean province the residence is located in. Currently, there are 11 provinces with most containing 2~3 residences each.
The Jusin population is grow at a low rate in recent times, causing concern among government officials. The population is 64 as of March 23rd, 2020, with 56 citizens from the Korean division and 8 from the English division.
In Jusin, Korean is the most dominant language, with the usage of English in the English division. The government aims to add more lingual divisions to become a global micronation.
Currently, the Jusin government is working on a conlang project to make a language easy to learn and use.
Jusin republic currently has no formal education system, but the government is encouraging its citizens to take classes on Micropatrology at MDSO(Micronational Development Support Organization). The government is cooperating with MDSO to create official education programs in Jusin where citizens can learn about the history of micronations and its studies.
Jusin is currently a full member state of the Grand Unified Micronational and the Asia-Pacific Alliance. Jusin's policies regarding foreign relations are relatively strict. It has all diplomatic procedures set by law, and most micronations are only allowed diplomatic relations at the level of mutual recognition.

Jusin does not have a defense force at the moment. The Department of Defense was abolished in 2019, and public security is now maintained by the OSA.
Jusin economy is actually run by consuming goods and paying real money. Jusin takes pride in its economic system, and encourages citizens to open businesses and earn money. Taxes are yet to become in Jusin, but some citizens argue about its necessity.
Jusin culture is still developing.
