Treconia, or officially the Kingdom of Treconia is a small micronation which claims Dream Island and the Swain Islands group, both in Antarctica. The official founding date is considered to be May 7th, 2012, even though the Constitution is still under construction. The current ruler is the monarch, currently King Jacob I.

Etymology

The name Treconia was a word came up with out of pure creativity by co-founder Matt Miller. In Italian it means three coins, though that had nothing to do with why the name was chosen.

History

Treconia was founded on May 7th, 2012 and applied for membership as an observer to the Antarctic Micronational Union on May 15th, 2012, but on May 21st, 2012, they were denied on the grounds that they had not existed for three months previously. On October 18th, 2012, they were accepted as observers to the AMU.

Government and Politics

Treconia is a constitutional monarchy. The king can make laws which can be overidden by the legislative assembly at any time, and the Legislative Assembly can make laws which can be overidden by the King, making the monarchy a very powerful figure in Treconian politics. There is also a 4-man group called the Consulate which when all 4 are in agreement, they have veto power over everything but elections. The assembly requires at least 12 senators for it to be active, in addition to a President of the Assembly, a tiebreaker vote.

As of yet, there are no political parties, and the Legislative Assembly is not yet active.

The current King is Jacob I and the consulate is made up of Jacob I, Matt Miller, Jarret Neece, and Isaiah Shaffer.

Allies

So far the only ally of Treconia is The Federated Republics of Flatland, with the treaty being signed on June 2nd, 2012.
