|Auvenum was dissolved on 1 January 2020 and was returned fully to the United States, then was claimed by both the Kingdom of Bepistan and Fifth Aenderian Republic. |
The Kingdom of Auvenum was a constitutional monarchy which seceded from the Republic of Aenderia, now the Fifth Aenderian Republic on October 6, 2018. Auvenum's head of state included the Prince and they had a Prime Minister up to the 2019 Absolutism Takeover. The only leader of Auvenum was Prince Russell Gilzem I. On July 7, 2019, Auvenum became a provisional absolute monarchy. On January 1, 2020, the Prince called for the dissolution of the country and that all territories be returned to their respective macronations. On the first day in 2020, the Kingdom of Auvenum ceased to exist as a micronational entity.
The name "Auvenum" means nothing. The name was created by the country's founder: Russell Gilzem. The term "Auvenum" has no actual meaning and does not correspond with any modern world languages with the exception of Romanian.
Eventually, it was discovered that the word "Auve nu" means "they do not" in Romanian. Gilzem is reported to have said that "it best fits Auvenum's description because it represents the separation from Aenderia and its separation when Aenderia was overstepping their boundaries."
History and Education
For full Auvenese history: History of Auvenum
In mid-to-late 2019, the Auvenese Prince Russell Gilzem wrote up plans to introduce an education system into Auvenum. The education system was intended to teach Auvenese citizens about the history of Auvenum.
In October 2019, the monarchy announced that it would be opening up its very own, state-sponsored university: "Jyilzyem University." However, not many people signed up for classes at Jyilzyem University and the announcement came at a time when the country was beginning to decline. Accordingly, the Kingdom of Auvenum had never opened up such an educational institution and Auvenum later dissolved on January 1, 2020.
These were the following political parties in Auvenum:
This is a list of defunct parties in Auvenum. As of January 1, 2020, any political parties that held some aspect of Parliament were closed after the government collapse, rendering all political parties defunct.

Auvenum's citizenship program began on October 12, 2018, and was active until the country's collapse in January 2020.
The Kingdom of Auvenum accumulated over 30 citizens in the span of over one year. After the country's dissolution, all citizenships were voided.
A "Prime Minister" was someone who is in charge of the government, not the country. The Prime Minister is also the leader of Parliament. Over the years, Auvenum has been through many Prime Directors, and only until May 2019 was it called the "Prime Minister," was once a year elected to term and had a maximum of three terms as Prime Minister. The following is a list of the Prime Ministers throughout the years:
|Maximilian von Schroeder||October 6, 2018 - October 27, 2018|
|Jay Clover||October 27, 2018 - December 21, 2018|
|Nicholas Randouler||January 20, 2019 - July 7, 2019|

Auvenum never had a truly functioning market. The Auvenese currency was never put into official use and the Kingdom of Auvenum never accumulated more than one cent in wealth.
For many years, it was said that Auvenum had "several businesses" and thrived off a substantial agriculture and fishing industry. Although, Auvenum had never successfully grown a food product and the fishing industry was largely symbolic, as for it represented the Prince's interest in fishing. However, the Prince had not been fishing once since the secession from Aenderia. Auvenum also "exported goods" and was rumored to have run a line of cafés serving hot beverages as well as many types of Russian baked goods. No such café had ever managed to open up in Auvenum and the concept faded into obscurity.
The only organizations that Auvenum held were all nonprofit, such as the ICON Cover Competition Broadcasting Committee (ICCBC) and the Intermicronational Broadcast Organzization (IBO).
In June 2019, a state-sponsored initiative by the royal crown and the LPA (Liberal Party of Auvenum) was launched to reform Auvenum into a cultural center. The first steps began when Auvenum had announced their entry into Microvision 2019, but later retracted due to political reasons. Later on, Auvenum would announce their return to the ICON Cover Competition, but the competition was never held after being postponed multiple times and ICON never held the second annual competition. ICON had not officially dissolved as a competition, but had become defunct.
The Kingdom of Auvenum had only one branch of military but was said to have created more in the future.
The military occupied 3 fictional forts in Auvenum. One of them was located on Kamuda Peninsula (previously named Huj Island,) which shared a border to the west with the Principality of Duke, named Jahzir Allah (Arabic for Isle of God). Jazhir Allah was governed by Russell Gilzem and was visited by Tom Kap during Tom Kap's trip to the Kamuda Peninsula.
The two other “bases” are claimed to have been located in the "Robertson Sea Chain," named after the official name for the islands in Antarctica.
After the secession of Kivaria, Auvenum was “left” with two of its islands, "Voka" and "Kinatoure."
Kirina was the “largest city” and capital of Kinatoure. Kinatoure also housed the fictional military base “Fort Mullins”, named after the lawyer who helped Gilzem win the trial against voter fraud in September 2018, and the former Attorney General of Auvenum.
The island of "Voka" housed “Fort Gilzem”, the fictional military base named after the first Prince, Russell Gilzem.

Auvenum was divided into regions and districts. Auvenum had only one district and was thus the federal district of Auvenum, Jyilzyem. Jyilzyem was the smallest district (size-wise) in Auvenum, but had the highest population at around 80% of all Auvenese citizens presiding residence in Jyilzyem. (Yilz-yem)
Jyilzyem had different territories and numerous claims located in Brooklyn, NY and are part of Jyilzyem. Some of those claims include:
- Kamuda Peninsula
- Federal District
- Asser Levy Stadium
The Kir Islands were divided into 5 islands, 3 of which have recently been reclaimed from the Kingdom of Kivaria. Two of those islands, Kinatoure and Voka, are the main ones with constituencies implemented into regions. The island of Jir was annexed by Cloverzem but was given to Bepistan towards the end of Cloverzem's reign. The other two islands are unnamed but used to serve a "scientific purpose" during the Aenderia-Auvenum conflicts in late-2018.
The following islands are Kirinian:
- Kinatoure (Main City/Capital: Kirina)
- Voka (Main City: Fort Gilzem)
