The Kingdom of Indradhanush (in-dra-dha-nush (Listen) (help·info)) lit. Rainbow (Hindi: इंद्रधनुष राज्य , Bengali: ইন্দ্রধনুষ রাজ্য ), more commonly known as simply Indradhanush or informally Rainbow[c], is a sovereign state[d], called a micronation by external observers, consisting of multiple non-contiguous pieces of land, with its mainland located within Bengaluru, India. It was founded on 13 February 2021. The Kingdom's form of government is an absolute monarchy, defined by the Constitution of Indradhanush. It was solely based on a monarchy as it is the most common government system within micronationalism. The mainland consists of one city—the capital and most populous Chandril City. It also has a Special Administrative Region called Wisea.
The locality in which Indradhanush is located (Kudlu) first emerged when Jyothi Labs set up a factory for their famous brand, Ujala. The factory was eventually demolished due to environmental concerns. The construction of the factory led to the creation of various pharmacies and clinics. Due to Kudlu having various empty plots, BBMP decided to set up a waste management factory, known as KCDC. Zee Learn Ltd later set up a Mount Litera Zee School. Eventually, Kudlu became more and more residential. The residents started to protest about the stench from the KCDC Compost plant. Various outdoor activities have been suspended in the Mount Litera Zee School, Kudlu due to it. .
The nation is a member of the Micronational Assembly from 29 March 2021 and helped in the formation of the MID Act. It was an observer in the Cupertino Alliance since 10 September 2021 and is an observer in the Micronational Community of Australia since 6 October 2021. It is a member of the Cupertino Alliance since 13 October 2021, on the occasion of Maha Asthami, with 7 votes for promotion, 4 votes for expellation and 3 votes to remain observership.
The name "Indradhanush" was derived from the Hindi word of the same name meaning a rainbow. The name was proposed on 11 February 2020, by Chandrachur Basu.
Indradhanush can though be written as the conjoined words of "Indra" and "Dhanush". Indra, referring to the ancient Vedic deity in Hinduism. He is the king of Svarga (Heaven) and the Devas (gods). He is associated with lightning, thunder, storms, rains, river flows and war. Indra's mythology and powers are similar to other Indo-European deities such as Jupiter, Perun, Perkunas, Zalmoxis, Taranis, Zeus, and Thor, suggesting a common origin in Proto-Indo-European mythology. and Dhanush meaning Bow in Hindi. So Indradhanush means Indra's bow.
- 13 February 2021 - 30 July 2021 - State of Indradhanush
- 30 July 2021 - present day - Kingdom of Indradhanush
The unofficial microcode of the Kingdom of Indradhanush is IH. KOI and COI are also used sometimes.
The State of Indradhanush
The State of Indradhanush declared independence on 13 February 2021.
The coronation of Chandrachur Basu happened on 13 February 2021. It was a solemn ceremony due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He decided to adopt his surname as his regnal name. The full style of him after his coronation is:-
"His Majesty Basu I, of the State of Indradhanush, Sovereign of Chandril City, Carreville and Gadinagar, Defender of the Constitution and all faiths, Sovereign of the Privy Council, Supreme Commander of the Army, Navy and Airforce of Indradhanush, Sovereign and Grand Master of Order of Chandrachur I"
After the coronation, Basu I went to work. He immediately started to construct Indradhanush and its government. Under his reign, Hibernia was annexed. The diplomatic sphere was expanded. On one fine Sunday, the server of Indradhanush was raided. He couldn't do anything since his laptop was on charge at that time. He dealt with it the next day. He later said that this was the result of his karma and Newton's 3rd Law of Motion. He applied for the GUM for observership and the CA for membership.
He abdicated on 24th February 2021, after ruling for just 11 days due to his failure of admitting Indradhanush into the GUM due to his past actions. He declared that fellow Privy Council, Aircraft[e], be the next king.
Aircraft, became the King of Indradhanush on the same day.
The announcement was the first and only declaration by His Majesty Aircraft, he announced,
Indradhanush is no longer a nation situated within Asia. It is now a nation with a global presence.
— His Majesty Aircraft I on the #announcements channel in Indradhanush, 25 February 2021
This was a major change from the isolationist domestic and foreign policy that the country was following.
Coup d'état by Basu
On 26 February 2021, Chandrachur Basu did a coup d'état on HM Aircraft I and crowned himself King of Indradhanush.
After the Coup'd'etat
Chandrachur Basu was impressed with the announcement that Aircraft made. He was forced to agree and changed the foreign policy of Indradhanush.
This era was the prosperous or the golden era of Indradhanush. Under this, major reforms were done by Chandrachur I such as the merger of Wisea into Indradhanush, annexation of Hibernia, creation of the orders, decorations, and medals of Indradhanush etc. He appointed Zarel Smith as Prime Minister. He also applied for the Micronational Assembly and proposed the MID Act.
Chandrachur I, decided to take a break as he had exams within a few days. He decided he needed a regent for a temporary basis. So, in the night, he appointed Michal Nowacki, as King of Indradhanush by taking the following announcement:-
I declare His Excellency Nowacki as King of Indradhanush till further notice.
— His Majesty Chandrachur I on the #announcements channel in Indradhanush
Dark Ages or the Regency Era
The Dark Ages or the Regency Era began right after the Nowacki Crisis. Chandrachur Basu decided to propose an impeachment motion against himself in the Privy Council of Indradhanush. The vote went like this:-
It was eventually decided to appoint John Lakes as the next king. The first thing he did was dissolve the nation. The reason he gave was that he was more involved in his own nation, the Republic of Floriland.
The Kingdom of Indradhanush or the Revival Era
- Note: This section will remain cursory until the era draws to a close.
On 30 July 2021, Chandrachur Basu decided to revive the country. He finished his coronation ceremony in the country of NoboBangla. He then passed a royal decree which appointed Nafiz Morshalin, replacing Zarel Smith as the Prime Minister of Indradhanush. He resigned after 4 days becoming the shortest-term serving PM. He suggested that his brother serve as Prime Minister. Chandrachur Basu agreed and hence, Nabin Mutakin became the Prime Minister of Indradhanush.
His Majesty Chandrachur I then passed a royal decree on 11 August 2021, highlighting the goals of the nation. He then passed a huge royal decree on 16 August 2021, containing 20 points. It is the longest royal decree ever passed in Indradhanush. On 7 September 2021, Chandrachur Basu passed a royal decree introducing the concept of ambassadors to the country. Indradhanush became an observer in the Cupertino Alliance on 10 September 2021, with 14 supports, 3 opposes and 2 abstentions. On 11 September 2021, in a surprise announcement, His Majesty Chandrachur Basu changed the Prime Minister to James Roberts. On 16 September 2021, he completed 200 days of his reign as Monarch of Indradhanush.
The 1st Swivelter Ministry was announced by Chandrachur Basu on 23 September 2021. It is the largest cabinet formed in Indradhanush and consisted of 6 cabinet ministers. On 25 September 2021, the country inaugurated the current flag adopted. It is made by Stefan Marius Snagoveanu and combined the flag of Lowenia and the previous flag. The country is currently on vote for promoting its status in the Cupertino Alliance from observer to member.
Indradhanush then went on a diplomatic spree by signing diplomatic treaties with 3 micronations in 3 days. It signed a treaty with Winterspell on 5 October, Salanda on 6 October 2021 and Arsalania on 7 October 2021. Each of the treaties were unique. Winterspell is the first American nation to recognize Indradhanush. It was also their first diplomatic interaction. On 7 October 2021, His Majesty Chandrachur I of Indradhanush, His Majesty Petrus I of Winterspell and the Prime Minister of Winterspell had a informal summit. Salanda is the first British nation to recognize the nation. Arsalania is the first Pakistani and ASAM micronation to recognize Indradhanush.. The relations with all the nations currently are amicable.
It eventually became a member of the Cupertino Alliance on 13 October 2021, on the occasion of Maha Asthami, with 7 votes for promotion, 4 votes for expellation and 3 votes to remain observership. On the same day, Hibernia was reorganized as the merger of Carreville and Gadinagar.

Climate of Indradhanush
Chandril City and Hibernia
Chandril City and Hibernia, is located in the city of Bangalore and hence has a tropical savanna climate (Köppen climate classification Aw) with distinct wet and dry seasons. Due to its high elevation due to the Nandi Hills, Chandril City usually enjoys a more moderate climate throughout the year, although occasional heat waves can make summer somewhat uncomfortable. The coolest month is January with an average low temperature of 15.1 °C (59.2 °F) and the hottest month is April with an average high temperature of 35 °C (95 °F). The highest temperature ever recorded in Bangalore is 39.2 °C (103 °F) (recorded on 24 April 2016) as there was a strong El Niño in 2016. There were also unofficial records of 41 °C (106 °F) on that day. The lowest ever recorded is 7.8 °C (46 °F) in January 1884. Winter temperatures rarely drop below 14 °C (57 °F), and summer temperatures seldom exceed 36 °C (97 °F). Chandril City receives rainfall from both the northeast and the southwest monsoons as well as from cyclones that attack the Tamil Nadu coast, for example Cyclone Gaja. The wettest months are September, October and August, in that order. The summer heat is moderated by fairly frequent thunderstorms, which occasionally cause power outages and local flooding. Most of the rainfall occurs during late afternoon/evening or night and rain before noon is infrequent. November 2015 (290.4 mm) was recorded as one of the wettest months in Bangalore with heavy rains causing severe flooding in some areas, and closure of a number of organisations for over a couple of days. The heaviest rainfall recorded in a 24-hour period is 179 millimetres (7 in) recorded on 1 October 1997.

Wisea is located in Glasgow in Scotland. Despite its northerly latitude, similar to that of Moscow, Wisea's climate is classified as oceanic (Köppen Cfb). Data is available online for 3 official weather stations in Glasgow: Paisley, Abbotsinch and Bishopton. All are located to the west of the city, in neighbouring Renfrewshire.
Owing to its westerly position and proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, Glasgow is one of Scotland's milder areas. Winter temperatures are usually higher than in most places of equal latitude away from the UK, due to the warming influence of the Gulf Stream. However, this results in less distinct seasons as compared to continental Western Europe. At Paisley, the annual precipitation averages 1,245 millimetres (49.0 in). Glasgow has been named as the rainiest city of the United Kingdom, having an average of 170 days of rain a year.
Winters are cool and overcast, with a January mean of 5.0 °C (41.0 °F), though lows sometimes fall below freezing. Since 2000 Glasgow has experienced few very cold, snowy and harsh winters where temperatures have fallen much below freezing. The most extreme instances have however seen temperatures around −12 °C (10 °F) in the area. Snowfall accumulation is infrequent and short-lived. The spring months (March to May) are usually mild and often quite pleasant. Many of Glasgow's trees and plants begin to flower at this time of the year and parks and gardens are filled with spring colours.
During the summer months (June to August) the weather can vary considerably from day to day, ranging from relatively cool and wet to quite warm with the odd sunny day. Long dry spells of warm weather are generally quite scarce. Overcast and humid conditions without rain are frequent. Generally the weather pattern is quite unsettled and erratic during these months, with only occasional heatwaves. The warmest month is usually July, with average highs above 20 °C (68 °F). Summer days can occasionally reach up to 27 °C (81 °F), and very rarely exceed 30 °C (86 °F). Autumns are generally cool to mild with increasing precipitation. During early autumn there can be some settled periods of weather and it can feel pleasant with mild temperatures and some sunny days.
The official Met Office data series goes back to 1959 and shows that there only have been a few warm and no hot summers in Glasgow, in stark contrast to areas further south in Great Britain and eastwards in Europe. The warmest month on record in the data series is July 2006, with an average high of 22.7 °C (72.9 °F) and low of 13.7 °C (56.7 °F). Even this extreme event only matched a normal summer on similar parallels in continental Europe, underlining the maritime influences. The coldest month on record since the data series began is December 2010, during a severe cold wave affecting the British Isles. Even then, the December high was above freezing at 1.6 °C (34.9 °F) with the low of −4.4 °C (24.1 °F). This still ensured Glasgow's coldest month of 2010 remained milder than the isotherm of −3 °C (27 °F) normally used to determine continental climate normals.
