Ceticilia is a micronation mainly located in the Rhineland (Germany). The rest of Ceticilia is in Spain, and a non-European part in East Asia, more precisely in Macau. Ceticilia borders Altannia, Germany, Macau, Chuk Wan Shan and Spain.
Ceticilia elects a president every year. The vice president is the person who gets the second most votes in the presidential election.
Ceticilia is closely associated with Altannia because it is an important political and economic partner of Ceticilia. By being a DANC member, Ceticilia commits to the recognition of all member states of this organization.

The English origin name "Ceticilia" was more or less decided by chance and has nothing to do with the name "Cecilia".
It has been "reverse-engineered" to mean "Land of getting clay".
100% of Ceticilians understand English. Around half of the Ceticilians are LGBTQ+ and around 70% are atheists. Main article: Ceticilian general census, 2019 (English)
Before the official founding of the State of Ceticila, it was a vague concept of a theoretical state. Originally, Ceticilia was to be financed by donations and settled on a private island. However, this was quickly recognized as nonsensical and the plan was rejected. Today's Ceticilia consists of uninhabited places that are close to one or more Ceticilian citizens.
The (unofficial) flag of Ceticilia was a horizontal tricolor with the colors orange, white and blue.
National Foundation/Founding Time
Ceticilia was officially founded on March 29, 2016 - as the Republic of Ceticilia. The first president, Aqua, was elected President of the Republic with 75% approval within the first hours of the state's formation. When the state was founded, Borkenfels (contemporary: Sprelbuerg) was declared with bilateral consent to the protectorate under Ceticilian supervision.
The only official position was that of the President. There was no constitution for the time being and all decisions were made with direct democracy.
The first flag of Ceticilia was a banner with a white field, gold stripes at the top and bottom and a golden seagull in the middle, which was later removed due to unpopularity and copyright problems, as seagulls in Ceticilia became less popular and the seagull on the flag was taken from the Scarborough Football Club crest.
Politics in Ceticilia improved a lot with the introduction of the first constitution, with which laws were anchored and Ceticilian principles were consolidated. During this time, today's Ceticilian flag became official.
As of August 15, 2016, the position of Chief Justice was established, this position serves to interpret the law and the enforcement of this law in verdicts. Mia Torres was the first Chief Justice of Ceticilia.
In the spring of 2017, disputes arose between the Geolibertarian Party and the Progressive Party of Ceticilia, as the Geolibertarian Party accused the Progressive Party of governing dictatorially and that the Geolibertarians were the real opposition.
Both Mia Torres and Aqua had the same number of votes in the Primaries for the Presidential Candidate of the Progressive Party, and this was repeated in the presidential election, at the last moment Aqua resigned to bring Mia Torres victory.
Not long after she won the election, she was impeached on grounds of treason, after she infiltrated the Geolibertary Party under the false alias "Kurisu" and became party leader, making Aqua the interim president.
The whole incident was nicknamed #Wolfygate
Kingdom of Ceticilia
On July 27, 2017, Aqua created a cabinet to prepare for a possible kingdom, which caused Aqua being temporarily removed from office, which was reversed due to the lack of criminal offense. After the impeachment, a legally binding referendum was held, which ensured the foundation of the kingdom with six votes (100% of the submitted). The kingdom had its own flag, designed by Matthew Comyn and based on the flag of Ceticilia before it was founded.
The head of state of the kingdom was Aqua, which made Aqua the only monarch in Ceticilian history.
The kingdom became increasingly unpopular over time, ultimately leading to the fall of the monarchy and the re-establishment of the republic.
The Second Republic is the current instance of Ceticilia and is simply called "Ceticilia" to stand out from the first republic. Originally, the office of president was to be abolished, but this turned out to be problematic, since Parliament would have too much power since it consisted of both legislative, executive and judicial branches.
On January 7, 2018, the office of president was reinstated, and Aqua won the election as president. This presidential term was somewhat shorter than normal terms because the cycle was to be synchronized again.
Sheeplandia declared independence in the era of the Second Republic and the capital was relocated from Neuheim to the new province of Weiden in the city of Ostweiden.
Due to a new constitution that was passed on August 18, 2019, Ceticilia no longer has a title and is simply called "Ceticilia", the parliament was abolished in favor of direct democracy. The judiciary has been restructured and now has three judges instead of just one.
Politics and government
Ceticilia is a presidential republic whose legislature is determined by the people. The people have the opportunity to vote in public referenda once a month. Each Ceticilian has the opportunity to submit a referendum proposal, which will be put to the vote if two other Ceticilians favor this proposal and the President does not veto it.
Law and order
The Supreme Court is responsible for interpreting the law and making judgments. There is no such thing as a state police force, and it probably will not exist anytime soon.
The Supreme Court currently consists of Aqua, Álvaro Barredo and Elemer San Miguel.
As a DANC member, Ceticilia recognizes the following states and maintains formal relationships with them:
Conscription and all military services were removed from the law by the August 18 constitution.
Geography and climate
The geography and climate of Ceticilia varies greatly by region. In general, Ceticilia can be divided into three regions:
- Spain / West Ceticilia / Western Europe
- Germany / Metropolitan Region / Central Europe
- Macau / East Ceticilia / East Asia
The German part of Ceticilia lies in the cold-temperate climate zone, however, due to its location in the Cologne Bay (with the exception of Sonnberg), it experiences hot, humid summers and comparatively mild winters with little snow. This part of Ceticilia is assigned to the Köppen climate Cfb.
Because this part of Ceticilien is located in the Rhine-Ruhr region, which is the largest metropolitan region in Germany, it is very densely populated around this region of Ceticilia.
With the exception of Sonnberg, the German part of Ceticilia lies entirely in the lowlands and is about one third forested. There is one permanent still body of water in the country - the Weidener See - which forms part of the border between Altannia and Ceticilia. Furthermore, Ódagwerth and Neuköln am Rhein border on the Rhine.
Grapes and olives grow in Neuheim.

Ceticilia currently has no active economy, but is in a currency union with Altannia, which aims to create an economy as soon as possible.
Originally, Ceticilia was supposed to publish its own currency called Gjá. However, this currency had no backing value and was therefore completely useless. Some designs were chosen for the Gjá and some notes like .50; 1; 2; 50Ǥ were printed. The notes were designed using the likes of Ceticilian personalities from the 1-20Ǥ bills and also using important personalities from around the world (for example, Alan Turing is shown on the 50Ǥ note).
The currency symbol was Ǥ.
Culture and Media
Potato Salad Policy/Potato Salad Legislation
The term "Potato Salad Legislation" (PSL) was created from a satirical draft law by Jørgen Natt, who, like many other Ceticilians, does not like potato salad at all and wanted to ban it from the parliamentary cafeteria with this draft. After Álvaro Barredo's constant accusation that Mia Torres only proposed PSL, Mia Torres proposed to the parliament to ban potato salad from the (non-existent) cafeteria, which strengthened the term.
Barredo previously referred to the dish's original never-in-force ban bill.
Today, this term denotes any policy that serves no useful purpose. The term is also known in Eodus. It exists there due to Ceticilian influence.
