The Kingdom of Michrenia is a micronation located in Pennsylvania. Founded on March 27th, 2013, Michrenia was, from May 30th, 2012, a district of the Republic of Ultamiya, to which it is a successor state. Michrenia has an area of 49,708 square feet and a population of 30. Michael Salapa, who was the Vice President of the Republic of Ultamiya, is its King. Michrenia has borrowed many elements of Ultamian culture, most notably its currency.

Michrenia derives from Michael and Renee, the two most influential people in the nation.

History

The area now known as Michrenia was an unofficial base for the Ultamian Army of the Republic ever since the King and his sister joined the military in May of 2011. Michael himself referred to the area as "Fort Whitaker" in reference to the older Fort Munhall, which him and President David Salapa had previously occupied on March 20th, 2010 prior to the founding of Ultamiya. In reality, however, the residence was not of any military importance or areal significance, being in a neighboring borough and thus far from the other three districts, so it was ignored by the Ultamian government.

By the spring of 2012, the activities concerning the two cousins had been increasingly close regarding the country. Not only did Michael help produce the 1000 Katane denomination in February, he also volunteered to help with the Aerial Forces, proposed a Series 2012 Katane, and served with the President on missions in all three districts. When coming back from such a trip to Fort Munhall Military District on May 30th, Michael proposed to Salapa that his residence be made a district. Surprisingly, David agreed, and the two set out to draft a Territorial Application form for the admittance of new districts or territories.

Michael filled out Michrenia, the name being proposed by Salapa, with himself as viceroy and signed. Salapa then signed himself, securing for the Republic a fourth district. Four months and a week later, on October 7th, the Ultamian flag was raised at Michrenia as part of the Closer Together project.[1]

Three months later, with the announcement of the dissolution of Ultamiya, Michael chose to found a successor state with Michrenia; on March 27th, Michrenia became an independent kingdom. It quickly claimed both Fort Munhall Military District and Shimate, which were submitted to joint control with the Kingdom of Varina on April 6th upon the founding of their military alliance, the Fort Munhall Command.[2]

Geography

Michrenia occupies an area of 40,708 square feet in the boroughs of Whitaker and Munhall. The capital is filled with fences and structures, and for this reason one of its two backyards is only accessible via the neighboring house to the Michrenian capitol.

Michrenia, the capital averages approximately 1020 feet above sea level.

Military

Michrenia is a highly military-based state; it is highly-armed with both Airsoft and Nerf weaponry. In Ultamiya, it was the first district to have commissioned Airsoft weaponry, even though at that time it was not yet a district. Michrenia's military makes up the bulk of the armed forces under the control of the Fort Munhall Command.

Often times, King Michael (as Viceroy/Vice President) will visit Varina with Michrenian Airsoft in tow. This practice has existed since before the founding of Ultamian Michrenia. The first military exercise of the Fort Munhall Command, occurring on April 8th, 2013, was conducted in this fashion.[3]

Michrenia's colonial territory, Fort Turtle Creek, is a spot of heavy fighting. In recent memory, at least four battles have occurred there. Michrenia has a general named Max Louge and he is a fearless general. King Michael says "I hand picked him because of is honesty and bravery". He is a loyal person.
