The Kingdom of Atiera, more commonly known as Atiera, is a micronation primarily located in Barrie, Ontario[2] with territories in Hamilton, Ontario, Caledonia, Ontario[2] and Michigan[3], founded and ruled by Liam Alexander, the current King of Atiera. It was founded on 30 May 2020 at what is now Alexandra Hill, formerly an unnamed hill in a nearby forest by the King's residence. It is a semi-constitutional monarchy, meaning the monarchy holds some power within the legislature.

The current Prime Minister is Isaiah Burdette.

History and eras

Imperial era

Foundation

The Kingdom of Atiera was founded on 30 May 2020 by Liam Alexander, now King of Atiera. It was founded at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic to keep Munroe occupied during the days most of Canada had to stay at home. At its founding, the nation was known as the Empire of Atiera. The nation's claims were established roughly 2 days later when Munroe went to a nearby forest and surveyed the land, claiming a piece with a sign reading “Claimed by the Empire of Atiera.”

Yetman era

Before 27 June 2020, Munroe had failed at all his previous attempts to begin a government for the Empire. On the same day, he announced that he would be holding elections to appoint the Prime Minister, head of government of the former Senate. Zachary Yetman, the first local citizen, had announced he would be running for Prime Minister of Atiera. Alongside Yetman, an individual by the pseudonym of Rona Ambrose announced they would also be running for Prime Minister. Later in the week, Zachary Yetman was appointed Prime Minister of Atiera. Alongside, Munroe had established the position of Empress of Atiera, where Rona Ambrose was appointed as the first empress. The empress was granted the same powers as the emperor, including the right to remove politicians from office, which Ambrose exercised when she removed Yetman from his position as Prime Minister and exiled him from the land. An individual by the name of Bob Jopy was appointed the caretaker Prime Minister of Atiera. To this day, Zachary Yetman is still exiled from the Kingdom of Atiera.

Modern kingdom

On the 10th of August 2020, it was announced that the Empire of Atiera would be transitioning to the Kingdom of Atiera. The Empire still informally stands as the Atieran Empire (also known as the Atieran Commonwealth), comprised of the Kingdom of Atiera and her colonies and dependencies.

On 26 November 2020, the Kingdom of Galte, located in Michigan[3], led by Prince Michael of Galte, was admitted into the Kingdom of Atiera's commonwealth and is now a colony known as the Principality of Galte[4]. On 5 December 2020, it was decided that the constitution of Atiera would be rewritten. This was a major milestone for Atiera and the Miller administration. The constitution was finished on 14 January 2021.[5]. Later, the constitution was amended to fix several issues on 17 April 2021. The amendment was authored by the Prince of Galte and speaker of the House of Commons, Michael Shepard.[6]

Politics and government

Today, Munroe I is the reigning King of Atiera, and Isaiah Burdette is the current Prime Minister of Atiera. He is in charge of the government of Atiera and appoints the Cabinet of Atiera to his own liking, as long as it is approved by the Monarch.

The Parliament of Atiera consists of one branch, known as the House of Commons. The House of Commons is currently the only legislative body of Atiera and serves the entire commonwealth, however, colonies may be allowed to create and run a local legislature.

Political parties

There are currently three political parties in the nation, the Atieran Moderate Coalition, the Atieran People's Union (APU), and the Atieran National Front (ANF). The ANF has dominated the political scene for most of its existence [5] as all of the prime ministers have been affiliated with the ANF. Previously, the Atieran People's Union existed alongside the ANF, but the party ceased to exist on 21 February 2021 after failing to submit a charter to the government per the Party formalization Act[7]. The APU has since been reconstituted as of 7 June 2021 with the adoption of a new charter.[8]

The Atieran Moderate Coalition was founded on 31 May 2021 by James Bornstein and was approved on 1 June 2021 following the submission of a charter.
