This is a federal state of the Abeldane Empire

The Kingdom of Demirelia, more commonly known simply as Demirelia and formerly known as the Federal Republic of Demirelia and the Empire of Demirelia, is a federal state of the Abeldane Empire, after the annexation of the Empire of Demirelia on 30 June 2016, to become a federal state of Abelden, under the name the Kingdom of Demirelia. As of June 30, 2016, Mike Lewis is its First minister, serving his first term.

Demirelia was originally created as a project between Abelden's Stephen I and Nedland's Ned Greiner. They founded it as the Federal Republic of Demirelia, as inspired by Switzerland's government. Then, between October and November of 2015, Demirelia became an empire. During this time, Stephen was the emperor and Greiner the prime minister.

After Greiner left the community, Stephen offered Patrick Renwick the crown as Demirelian Co-Emperor. Then, on May 28, after Greiners return to micronationalism, he was reinstalled as prime minister by Stephen.

At the end of June 2016, a referendum was held in Abelden regarding the question of whether or not the nation should become a federal monarchy, and annex the majority of the members of the Abeldane Commonwealth. After the referendum resulted in an overwhelming majority in favor of federal monarchy, Demirelia was willingly annexed as a federal state, and became a kingdom. Co-Emperor Stephen abdicated, whilst Co-Emperor Patrick I was proclaimed king of Demirelia, and promptly appointed Mike Lewis as First Minister.

Foreign Affairs

The foreign affairs of Demirelia are handled by the Abeldane Empire, the nation of which Demirelia is a federal state of.

Governemnt

Demirelia is formally a parliamentary constitutional monarchy, with the Reichsversammlung as it's temporary legislature. However, in practice the country is an absolute monarchy, and the king took direct control of government following the resignation of Mike Lewis as First Minister in early 2017 and the King not appointing a replacement.
