Medopolania offically the Medopolanian Republic is a self declared independent state that claims the former Wallenian territory of Dewallenia, the name Medopolania comes from the latin word for center, Media and Polania, named after the islands location in the Poelmeer, Medopolania consists of One main island Located in the city of Oegstgeest, surrounded by Dutch waters. With an area of approximately 377 by 55 feet (17 by 55m), Medopolania does not have a natual higest point, Medopolania is the lowest country of the world as Medopolania is 100% below sea level,

the nation was founded after the long expected Dissolution of the Kingdom of Wallenia with the intention to be a more serious secessionist version of Wallenia, with the argument that only Dewallenia was unclaimed by the local government, the cornerstones for this proposed state are freedom and direct democracy . The states character is more republican in contrast to the more monarchist Kingdom of Wallenia Politically the Medopolanian Republic is inspired by both the Swiss Confederation and the French Directory

Medopolania is not a member of the United Nations (UN), However many other states maintain unofficial ties through representative offices and institutions that function as de facto embassies and consulates. Medopolania is a member of the Viadalvian Commonwealth

Etymology

the name Medopolania, comes from Medio the latin word for centre and Polania a suffix based on the lake where the island is located . Poolmeer The offical name for the state is the Medopolanian Republic and in Dutch the Medopolonische Republiek.

Other proposed names were the Medopolanic Republic and the Republic of Wallenia

Previous names

Steingrad was named after Stijn Dros. The claimant for Viadalvia. Steingrad consists of two parts Stein and -Grad, a Slavic word meaning "town", "city", "castle" or "fortified settlement" that appears in numerous Slavic toponyms

Vroopa, The Gunther Islands, in Supremacy 1914

Vroopa was named after a fictional island that belongs to the Gunther Islands from the game Supremacy 1914 An island nation located smack dab in the middle of the Indian Ocean, it consists of two provinces (Buba, the capital and Vroopa) and is led by Gunther. Altough it was also named after Vroopus. a pet hamster of the first Queen Fleor this theory was disproven in 2021n, The Gunter Islands has no real life equivalent. Some theorise that is might be Diego Garcia, a small militarised atoll located in the British Indian Ocean Territory. However, Eclipse Point Town, which is owned by British Mauritius, is the biggest settlement on Diego Garcia, thus disproving the theory., it is located right in the middle of the Indian Ocean, making it a good launching pad for invasions from and to Africa/Polynesia.

Drosmania was named after the surname of his founder. Stein Dros with the suffix -Mania

Wallenia, cames from the unoffical macronational name of the island, De Waal (the Waal) meaning the water side (waterkant) where the island is located on, the word wall in Dutch, the word Wal means in Dutch as waterfront goes back to the word 'wal' as an elongated reinforcement. A rampart consisted of thrown earth and therefore distinguished itself from a masonry wall. In Dutch the word also took on a more specific meaning, meaning 'fortification of a waterfront', and by extension 'waterfront, bank, road to the water, etc.', after which wal also came to refer to the waterfront, regardless of the presence of an artificial boost. In English, the meaning was expanded to 'masonry' walls (English: 'wall').

Its not much known about Vroopa before its annexation by Viadalvia, It was however seen as a complete terra nullis due to the small size of the island, The island was likely artificial or was created after some adjustments where made in the chanel

Flag of Steingrad

the Viadalvian Navy annexed Vroopa and established the Federal Republic of Steingrad named after Stein Dros, who discoverd the island Steingrad became a very powerfull republic within Viadalvia, Steingrad was also a stronghold for the Viadalvian navy, Aswell for all left wing parties in Viadalvia, Steingrad often voted for socialist candidates and was the only federal entity that voted for Stein Dros in the 2014 Viadalvian presidential election

Durring the Viadalvian Civil War, Steingrad declared independence, although it was short lived, After the Viadalvian Civil War it was re annexed by Viadalvia,

Independence

After Timo Vink won the 2014 Viadalvian Presidental Elections, Steingrad became independent once again and renamed into Vroopa, Queen Fleor becomes the first soverein head of state of Vroopa, One year later she ablicated and her brother Stein Dros (who became Hendrik Kees I by Vroopan customs), under Hendrik Kees I Vroopa was renamed into Drosmania and was a single party state his rule was marked by dramatic political and social change. He was the first Vroopan ruler who attempted to modernize Vroopa on Western designs and to get more involved with the micronational community He reformed the kingdom by establishing the Island Medal, Adopting the Montevideo Convention and establishing a formal flag and coat of arms. He ablicated on 10 March 2017 due educational problems Soon Morsi was proclaimed as King of the Vroopans by Diderirk I, Morsi was inaugurated (Vroopans kings where never crowned) on 10 March 2017 in 2018 Vroopa's government cased to function since most of the members either resigned or left micronationalism all toghether

However on 19 December 2019, Shady Morsi, King of the Vroopans maintains that the government wasn't dissolved. This claim comes from the fact that neither the King or the Ciitzens council had dissolved the government. Morsi decided to use their power to state that the government hadn't been dissolved and that it is being revived. Later on 2019 the king called a new Citizens Council in order to aid with revival. It is currently undergoing a process of "resuming government activities," or trying to revive the original kingdom. The nation was renamed into Wallenia to restore the macronational name of the island (De Wallen)

A second revivial was due to the COVID-19 pandemic when Joseph once declared that the nation will be re-restored to not abandon Vroopan/Drosmanian/Wallene history, Soon he met with the former monarchs of Vroopa on zoom proclaming the reawakining of Wallenia,

Wallenia

Wallenia's only neighbour the Principality of Yakklam was inactive and the nation was seen as brain dead, Seeing an oppertunity to expend Wallenia, neogiations between the Prince of Yakklam and the King of Wallenia happend on April 26th During this time, Yakklam ceased to exist as an independent country and was reformed into the Grand Duchy of Klinkerberg with the king of Wallenia also being the grand duke of Klinkerberg while the former Prince of Yakklam retiring from micronationalism forever

On May 5th, Wallenia annexed Klinkerberg as an integral part of the kingdom

King Joseph welcoming new Wallenian citizens

Wallenia recruted a lot of yongsters that where either friends of Wallenian citizens or where already honary citizens. On May 17th 2021, The economic, social, and political aspects of immigration have caused controversy regarding such issues as maintaining Wallenias reputation as a serious nation, and Wallenias territorial size.. Research suggests that immigration to Wallenia is beneficial to the Wallenian economy. With few exceptions, the evidence suggests that on average, immigration has positive economic effects on the native population, The case for a new state within Wallenia was due with growing unrest and inactivity within the Nation, developing into an incessant political and legislative conflict between political parties and the central government,


At this time, Wallenia was in political instablilty since the SCF was formed after prominent Minister, Sloos and most of his allies where purged from the WLP, Expecting that the government will collapse, King Joseph and Grand-Governor Bosman met for a second time to discuss the future of the current Wallenian state. the government was safe until, Former Foreign minister Anuar Laddas, left and sat as an independent, the royal court had 9 seats, (WLP, 4, NP, 3 and NWCD,2) the united opposition had 8 seats


King Joseph has announced to retire soon due to his dislike for the Wallenian throne, (he prefered to make Wallenia into a democratic republic) Grand Governor Bosman said he was considering dissolving the legislature because of a lack of cooperation in Parliament, saying "all the signs indicate that this Parliament is at the end of its productiveness,", Another issue plagued Wallenia is inactivity and especially within Kronstadt, Chardonnay and Klinkenberg, Regent, Eray Serif said in a press conference that the "Wallenian state was extremely weakend due to its inactivity and hopes to recruit citizens are thrown out of the windows due to lack of intrest"

The House of Nobles met on June 8th with the former Monarch, Hendrik Kees I and former Grand Governor McKeiten to "look for an alternate state" Wallenia has about 61 registered citizens whereas 44 are active as of May 2021, However in August, only 24 where still active and or commited to contribute to the current Wallenian project

The Kingdom of Wallenia by the time of the early 2020s was widely regarded by contemporaries, both inside and outside the state, as a highly "irregular" monarchy and "sick", having an "unusual" form of government. constant reforms and having a lack of consistency, (for example the Grand Governor used to be an appointed office but it was unclear who appointed the Grand Governor) Wallenia lacked a central treasury and its monarchs, formally elective rather than hereditary, could not exercise effective central control.

Bosman and Morsi met saying that the ammino to continue the current Kingdom was "extremely low" in a WDN sponsored poll about 47% voted for the dissolution of Wallenia 33% had no opinion on the matter and only 13% voted to retain the status quo. Many Wallenians desired the existence of a new independent state.

The degree of centralization varies from one municipality

Municipalities are generally governed by an executive council headed by a president or mayor. Legislative authority is exercised by a town meeting of all citizens, or by a municipal parliament, depending on the size of the municipality, and on cantonal and municipal law. In some cantons, foreigners who have lived for a certain time in Switzerland are also allowed to participate in municipal politics. As at the cantonal and federal level, citizens enjoy political rights, including direct democratic ones, in their municipality.

Municipalities are financed through direct taxes (such as income tax), with rates varying more or less within a framework set by the government
