Millania (/mɪllɑːniːɑː/ Mil-LAH-nee-yah), officially the Millanic Confederation, is a self-declared sovereign nation, or more commonly known as a micronation to external observers. Millania declared its independence in early December 2017 in Colombia. Today, Millania is composed of four constituent Kingdoms that have land claims in Thailand and the United States among other countries with the larger predominant piece of land located in Colombia. The nation was founded on 1 December 2017 and is surrounded by the Department of Valle del Cauca in Colombia. The current Emperor of Millania is Chuty Tisquesusa II Carlos, after the abdication of Chuty Tisquesusa I Santiago on 5 May 2018.[1]

Zoey Liu is the current Chancellor, who is the head of the Terataga in Millania, while Jack Satterfield is the Opposition Leader and Crown Prince Nicolas Millan resides as Speaker. Millania's official capital is the City of Granada Nicosi, D.C., more commonly known as Nicosi City. Other cities include Pasabrillo and Prietona. The empire consists of eleven prefectures, and a miriad of other possessions. English, Spanish, and Cantonese are the most commonly used native languages of Millania, and Spanish, English, Cantonese, and Millanic are Millania's official languages, with regional languages including Thai, Mandarin, French, Japanese, Duala, and Bankon Abo. [2]

Millania has a smaller service based economy primarily based on investments, media, and music. Millania exports services to other micronations and macronations, which gives Millania a sizable economy. Millania scores a 3.3 in the Freayth's System of Classification. [3]

Etymology

Millania is named after House Millán, the ruling family of the nation. The Millán family is believed to be descended from the town of San Millán de la Cogolla, or possibly from Saint Emilianus himself.

he term New Granada was once part of the name of the nation and refers first to the Great Colombia, as well as to the entities that followed. This was the name given to a group of 18th-century Republics in northern South America, where Millania is located.

History

Proto-Millanian states

"The Club" or "The Republic" is the first political entity that Millanian history can be traced back to. Not much is known about this state, as most official documents from this period were not recovered. Founded by a small group and without any territory, it faced opposition with "The Oligarchy". These two groups participated in small conflicts and often threw insults at their memberships. After a few months, a treaty was signed by their two leaders, unifying the two states. The Republic soon fell into turmoil, with many secessionist movements. The Republic eventually dissolved in June due to most of its membership losing interest.

A common view of the Calochoan Prefectures.

The first sign of activity within a later proto-millanian state was a poll that took place on 22 September 2017. The group began forming small states that in turn formed federations. The most important of these states were the Kingdom of Millania and the Government of Canton, the only two states with enough political power to occupy and control other states. The first nation that unified them was The Principality of Nicosia, the first proto-millanian state, founded on 16 October 2018. Nicosia was an unstable fledgeling nation, run by a small group of regional monarchs and nobles, and only lasted about a week. The Republic of New Granada was modeled after the old Republic of Gran Colombia, and soon was overthrown in a self-coup by the Republic of Millania, an autocratic state first founded shortly before the empire in late October. It stabilized the state, and allowed for much of the nation's early development to take place. This republic soon formed a provisional parliament, the first elected legislative body in the nation's history. The parliament created the first administrative divisions, under the short-lived department system, and drafted the Declaration of Independence, the first document which listed Millania as an empire.

Foundation

Millania and New Granada declared its independence from the Republic of Colombia on 1 December 2017, after a short ceremony, in which most of the first parliament and other important figures signed the declaration. On January 11 2018, Millania joined the United Micropact, and began its first diplomatic initiative, ending a short period of isolationism. Millania saw an immense boom in development since, with the foundation of ministries and a supreme court, as well as the formation of the first militia in the Millanian army.

Granadine-Cornosian conflicts

Millania and New Granada sent a memo to the government of the People's Democratic Republic of Smithlandia, requesting a formal unification of nations. On 15 January 2018, Smithlandia responded by declaring 'war' on Millania. At 2:17 p.m. on 17 January, Smithlandia of Kentucky (the successor state of the People's Republic) agreed to cede its possessions to Millania and New Granada, ending the First Granadine-Cornosian conflict. Smithlandia was split into two autonomous duchies, the Grand Duchy of Howell, and the Duchy of Smithland.

Signing of the Treaty of Lichingrad.

The Cornosian rebellion, Also known as the second Granadine-Cornosian conflict, began on 28 January 2018, when Connor Smith, Duke and former dictator of Smithlandia declared independence with no prior notice and then declared 'war' once more. At exactly 11:00 a.m. GMT+8 on 2 June, a treaty was signed between Millania and New Granada and the rebel Cornosian Government, ending the Cornosian rebellion. [4]

Union of Millania and New Granada

The heads of state of Millania and New Granada, the Grand Sultanate of Howelliville, the Kingdom of Anderssonia, and Smithlandia of Kentucky met on a junk boat off the coast of Hong Kong, marking the summit of the four kingdoms. Representatives of the Order of the Great Dragon of the East were also present. Except for Anderssonia, which instead joined the Millanian Commonwealth, the nations present resolved to unite in a federation under the Millanian crown. The nation then became known as the United Kingdoms of Millania and New Granada. The leaders present then swore allegiance to the the Millanian crown. The Order of the Great Dragon of the East became a sovereign order with no territory in the same treaty. [5] The Millanian parliament added two seats in the following election for Howelliville and Cornosia.

The Millanian imperial family released an order creating a stronger parliament, reformed subdivisions, and a reformation of the nation's government. The Millanian parliament was split into two houses, and departments were reformed into prefectures, as new borders were redrawn. Millania began implementing a more uniform and professional system of government, better reflecting the originally intended balance of power. [6] Millania then experienced a boom in activity, and legislation. This is the period when the bulk of the Declaration of Common Law was drafted and approved, provisionally becoming law. Elements of a constructed Millanian culture and language were also created during this time. Millania also saw another series of reforms, once again reforming the parliament and enforcing the first law beyond the new constitution; the Millanian Economy Act.

On 16 May, Santiago abdicated as Emperor and Carlos ascended to the throne since Crown Prince Nicolás was too young to assume the post.

The Seilung crisis began on 24 August, when then conservative prime minister Nicholas Randouler resigned from office, becoming the second prime minister to leave in a single term and leaving the government "unfit to lead" by law. The parliament was replaced with an emergency cabinet until the following scheduled election. Shortly afterwards, Connor, King of Cornosia decided to break the Act of Union, declaring Cornosian independence once again. Cornosia was placed under martial law and Connor was deposed as its monarch. Connor and former MPs Jack Satterfield and Jackson Mariano as well as Aidan Mefford formed a rebel government (labeled with the exonym Mik) which aimed for the dissolution of Millania as a whole. Smith was promptly exiled from Millania, and the other rebels were forced to resign from their posts in government and charged with treason. Edmund, King of Howellville, was granted the territory of Cornosia and formed Yochtia (named after the Yochtese, or natives of Howellville and Cornosia), after seven days of martial law. [7] At this point, half of the rebels were classified as inactive and were returned to Millanian society, leaving Smith and Satterfield. Millania declared war on the Mik on 18 September 2018. After the signing of the Wrythe Convention, the status of war was annulled and the Mik were declared defunct.

The Aguasfrías River.

Millania and the Duchy of Charlbrough, the Second Federal Republic of Gran Colombia, and a loosely organized federation of tribes agreed to sign the Second Millanic Act of Union. These nations would unify under the Millanian Crown. The signing took place in the Convention of Pasabrillo, where, de facto, the signatories met in the second summit of four kingdoms. The parties involved remained autonomous, holding equal status to that of Yochtia, that of a constituent realm, with the exception of the benetian tribes, which were given indigenous status and later dissolved.[8]

The Third Act of Union took place in the second convention of pasabrillo, unifying Millania and the Kingdom of Anderssonia under the Millanian crown. Thomas, King of Anderssonia, famously wrote "This goes both ways" on article three, entailing submission to the Millanian crown. The meaning of this added clause is debated. [9]


Calochoan period

Millania was accepted as a full member of the Grand Unified Micronational [10], and grew exponentially in citizenship, more than doubling in population.[11] In this time, its eleven remaining departments were fully integrated as prefectures over the course of May pursuant to Imperial Order IV, which was promulgated on 29 April 2019. The following election on 5 June saw the reelection of Thomas Andersson as Chancellor. His tenure saw the annexation of Aguasfrías (now Soledad) and San Nicolás into the empire. The guild system was adopted on 23 July, but at the time saw little success and thus barely any government support. The cabinet was expanded with the addition of the Ministries of Infrastructure and The Environment and Agriculture.

Pro-democratic protests began to intensify in Hong Kong in 2019, where many Millanian extraterritorial buildings were located. During this period, several states of emergency were instituted, and it saw a sharp rise in political contention within Millania over what to do about its eastern prefectures. Millania also formally joined the Asia-Pacific alliance on 20 August via Imperial Order X. Protests began in Bogotá, where the Emperor resided, prompting the government to shut down.

The Military Republic of Kayutsastan joined the union on 13 January 2020 after signing the Fourth Act of Union. Immediately, pro-independence movements sprang across Kayutsastan. Zoey Liu was elected Chancellor on 22 February. Shortly after on 1 March, the Captains Regent of Yochtia were removed in favour of Princess Antonia, who took over the monarchy and raised it to a Principality. She instituted sweeping government reforms, activating the long dormant parliament to operate as the legislature on 2 April, naming her brother Nicolás as First Minister. Millania joined the Asia-Pacific Free Economic Community on 10 April.

On 3 February 2020, Nicolás Millán met with officials from Essexia in the first ever in-person diplomatic summit for both nations during the 2020 Millania-Essexia Diplomatic Summit. They met in a hotel in Westminster and then again a week later in the city of Chelmsford, where Nicolás made the first ever state visit to another micronation. Both nations took part in the annexation of Friendship Bridge, a peaceful military operation against the United Kingdom.

On 18 April, the Free Commonwealth of Kayutsastan declared independence from the union unilaterally, contravening the Act of Union. This event is now known as Kyexit. This move saw international backlash in the form of condemnatory statements and sanctions. The military was dispatched to occupy several Kayut territories, prompting the rebels to negotiate a deal increasing Kayut autonomy in exchange for them staying in the union.

On 20 May, San Pedro and Terryshire-Upon-Chelmer were admitted as territories. The following month saw several political parties being formed, accompanying an influx in citizens and an increase in political activity.

Death of Nicholas Randouler

Nicholas Randouler, respected politician and former chancellor, died on 3 June 2020 aged 15. This marked fifteen days of national mourning beginning 9 June. He was granted several posthumous honours, and Sirusia was renamed Cordrica in his honour. Government Place was also renamed to Cordrey Place. This marked the collapse of Millania's closest ally, the Principality of Posaf, and the general decline of Millanian activity. The following months saw a reform of foreign policy, and the appointment of several ambassadors, with a vast expansion of its foreign network.

Época dorada

Millania was renamed the Confederation of El Dorado on 15 December, reflective of its newly non-millanocentric political situation, with a vast expansion of both population and territory in Kayutsastan. Zoey Liu was reelected as Chancellor on 15 December. Plan Dorado was soon released, dictating sweeping political changes meant to reactivate the nation, including title changes of the nation's nobility, a rebranding of the nation's foreign image, and the development of academia and the economy in the nation.

El Dorado joined the micronational space race on 2 February, 2021, announcing its first mission to the Moon, Chia 1, which would take a Millanian flag along with the Iustian flag aboard the Peregrine Moon Lander, making them the seventh and eighth flags on the moon's surface. The mission has yet to launch.

The long silence began in March of 2021 and carried through to 1 March 2022, where nearly no activity happened in El Dorado. This is regarded as the worst political decline in the nation's history.

Modern period

The Government returned on 1 March 2022, promulgating Imperial Order XXV the following day, which disestablished both Charlbrough and Anderssonia, and ceded the ten calochoan prefectures back to Colombia. Millanian Rattanakosin was renamed to Crise.

Government and politics

Millania is a unitary state and constitutional monarchy in which the power of the Emperor is limited to a semi-ceremonial role. Executive power is instead wielded by the Chancellor and his Cabinet, whose sovereignty is vested in the Millanian people. Carlos is the Emperor of Millania, having succeeded his son-in-law Santiago upon his accession to the Millanian Throne in 2018.

Millania's legislative organ is the National Diet, a tricameral parliament. It consists of a lower Chamber of Tribunes with 8 seats, and a middle Chamber of the Senate with 3 seats, elected by popular vote every six months or when dissolved, and an upper Chamber of Censors with 8 seats, whose imperially appointed members serve lifelong terms. There is universal suffrage for citizens and nationals over 13 years of age, with a secret ballot for all elected offices. The Chancellor as the head of government has the power to appoint and dismiss Cabinet Ministers, and is appointed by the Emperor after being elected by the people. Zoey Liu is Millania's Chancellor; she took office after winning the 2021 Liberal Party leadership election and subsequently the general election.

The Declaration of Common Law, adopted in 2018, is the supreme legal document. Statutory law originates in the legislature, and the constitution requires that the Emperor promulgate legislation passed by the Diet. Millania's court system is divided into three basic tiers: the Imperial Magistrate, overseen by the Supreme Justice and his two associates, prefectural courts, and high commissioner's audiences.

Political parties

Millania has operated under a multi-party system for all of its history. For elective offices at most levels, state-administered primary elections choose the major party nominees for subsequent general and prefectural elections. Since the general election of 2019 in June, the major parties have been the Conservative Party, founded in 2017, and the Liberal Party, founded in 2017. The Chancellor is elected through a nationwide preferential system vote. The prefectures of the West, known as "turquoise region", are relatively liberal. The "red region" of Rio Alcalá are relatively conservative, and the Cantonese prefectures are known for far-left beliefs. In the I Parliament, both the House of Peers and the House of Burgesses are controlled by the Grand Alliance. The House of Burgesses consists of direct democratic positions and representatives; the House of Prefects consists of 5 elected officials. Other notable Parties include the Marketists, Millanian Social Ecology, and the CBBP.

Administrative divisions

Millania is divided into eleven prefectures, each overseen by an appointed prefect. Six (Prietstina, Uribia, Llamaya, Granada Nicosi, Río Alcalá, and Calocho) are considered to be the mainland. Millania also has several overseas territories and possessions, which have their own separate systems of government. The territories are grouped into high commissions, which oversee judicial and certain executive functions.

Foreign relations

Millania is a member state of the Grand Unified Micronational, and the Asia-Pacific Alliance, and a founding member of the Micronational Olympic Federation. Millania is a growing power within its realm of influence. Millania has been a protector of peace, nicknamed "the bridgelands" for its attempts at restoring relations between nations.

The foreign relations of Millania are controlled by its Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Millania hosts several embassies in countries such as The United States of America, Colombia, Australia, and Canada, none of which are recognized by any government under which land they are in. Millania also has an embassy open in the Empire of Iustus. Millania is allied with many nations, some notable ones being Iustus, Sabia and Verona, and Posaf.

Together with Posaf and Iustus, Millania formed the B3 Alliance, a multilateral coalition which is considered to be one of the most dominant intermicronational organisations from 2018 to 2020. The B3 worked closely in many matters such as cybersecurity, espionage, joint diplomacy, and trade. The nations worked jointly to expose several instances of fraudulent and criminal activity worldwide, most notably during the Andany scandals in 2018.

Millania is invariably engaged in several territorial disputes with the United States, Colombia, the United Kingdom, and Thailand, as well as several other countries with which Kayutsastan has land disputes, including Germany and Denmark.

Military and law enforcement

The Imperial Armed Forces are governed by the Ministry of National Defense and consist of the Imperial Army, Imperial Navy, and Imperial Air Force. The military is not often used for defense purposes, and often assists with duties such as geographical surveys, exploration, environmental conservation, policing, and foreign aid initiatives. The only consistently active branch of the military is the army's Cyberdefense Command, responsible for cybersecurity for national communication lines, and the Air Force, which is one of the only micronational air forces to regularly schedule manned flights.

Although the National Police Force of Millania is technically not part of the military, it is controlled and administered by the Ministry of National Defense, and has a highly militarised structure not found in most of the world's law enforcement agencies, such as a distinction between enlisted and officer ranks. It consists of concurrent members of the armed forces in peacetime.

Demographics

The Millanian Census Bureau counted the country's population to be 100 as of 2021, and to be increasing by one (net gain) every month. In 2017 and 2018, the average adult woman in Millania gave birth to 1.67 children. Immigration has also caused the population to continue its rapid increase with the foreign-born population accounting for 99% of the population increase. One citizen was granted citizenship by birth in 2020. Colombians are the most prevalent nationality – followed by Americans, Chinese and Cantonese, among many other groups, including Lithuanians, Czechs, Cameroonians, Koreans, Japanese, and Canadians.

The majority of the population identifies as caucasian, or iberian descendant hispanic and latino. East Asians are a prevalent minority whose culture heavily influences the nation. Mestizos, southeast Asians, arabs, and African blacks constitute the remainder of the population.

Religion

Millania's laws guarantee freedom of religion. The largest religious group are the Catholics. Catholicism is the official religion of the country and there are plans to build a catholic church in the capital city. Protestants, Seventh-Day Adventists, Sunni Muslims, Latter-Day Saints, Jews, and Buddhists constitute the larger religious minorities. Atheists and Agnostics account for 10.9% of respondents. Chinese folk practices are practiced by many Asian and non-Asian Millanians, and these beliefs and rituals are considered to be important to the national culture.

Language

Millania has four official languages; english, spanish, cantonese, and millanic.The linguistic makeup of Millania is largely bilingual, with english speakers and spanish speakers making up the vast majority of first language speakers. Millanian politics and culture are largely shaped around the bilingual nature of the country. The eastern prefectures host a group of mandarin and cantonese speakers. The remaining linguistic groups include speakers of vietnamese, afrikaans, west african languages (specifically douala), swiss french, arabic, hebrew, and swedish.

38.2% of the population speaks a second language, of which 71.4% speak english, and 9.5% speak spanish. The remaining linguistic groups include tagalog, japanese, french, korean, and west african languages (specifically bankon abo).[12]

Millanic is a language developed by the national government to act as a lingua franca among the nation's citizens. The language is considered a romance language, and has been developed based off several other romance languages. There are no native speakers, nor is anyone fluent at the language. The language is often featured in multilingual logos, propaganda, and advertisements, and is considered intangible national heritage.

Education

Millanians are not required to undergo any formal education, but foreign educations are recognised by the Imperial Institute of Millania, which grants diplomas for those who complete a secondary education abroad. Many guilds and research institutes offer government-backed professional certificates in certain fields of study, which often require formal training administered online. These certificates are often required for certain jobs within the nation. The government historically has shunned the creation of a full national education system, deeming it unnecessary.

Geography

Millania is located in Alcalá Municipality in the Valle del Cauca Department, on the Cordillera Central, in central Colombia. The total land area of Millania is approximately 0.41884 km2, of which 0.202057 km² is the Mainland (or Mainland Occidental) region. Lake Valencia is also located near the capital. Millania is situated within the Colombian coffee growing axis, registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The entirety of Millania’s coastline and land border stretches 5.13 km on the Andaman Sea and the Caribbean Sea.

Millania's unpopulated territories consist of Alvaroa, Aguasfrías, Aguia, and San Nicolás, all of which are in the Andean departments of Antioquia and Risaralda and share similar geologic, ecologic, and climate traits to the Mainland, Avilia, which is in the elevated city of Bogotá, Potomac, which is situated nearby the Potomac river, Maryland, and Crise, which is in Phuket.


Climate

Millania is located in the Andes mountains, making it prone to cold weather. It is often sunny with a relatively large chance of rain (Köppen Cfb). In most of the mountainous regions, the climate is mainly warm and wet. In particular, the climate of the Mainland geographical region is mostly rainy, with cool winters and hot summers. The average temperature in Millania is 23.1 °C (73.6 °F). The Carribean region generally fits the Mediterranean climate type.

The Oriental Prefectures have a humid subtropical climate (Köppen Cwa). Summer is hot and humid, with occasional showers and thunderstorms and warm air from the southwest. Typhoons occur most often then, sometimes resulting in floods, such as the Great Flood of Pasabrillo, which left around 20 Millanians stranded in Pasabrillo, unable to make a safe passage back to their homes. Winters are mild and usually sunny at the beginning, becoming cloudy towards February; an occasional cold front brings strong, cooling winds from the north. The most temperate seasons are spring (which can be changeable) and autumn, which is generally sunny and dry. When there is snowfall, which is extremely rare, it is usually at high elevations.

Economy

Millania has a marketist mixed economy which is fueled by funding, donations, and productivity. The nominal GDP of Millania is estimated to ‡100 MGN as of 2018. In 2019, the total Millanian trade deficit was ‡0 MGN. Millania's labour force as of 2022 is estimated to number over ninety. Consumer spending comprises 40% of the Millanian economy in 2018. With 90.9% of the population employed, government is the leading field of employment. The largest private employment sector is media and public relations, employing one person. Millania has a larger welfare state and plans to redistribute a lot of national income through the government.[14] Millania also relies heavily on its guild system, a network of labour syndicates, to administer sectors of the economy and promote commerce in the country.

Hong Kong is the largest importer and exporter in Millania. Approximately 60% of trade flows to and from Hong Kong. In 2018, food was the largest import commodity, while media services were the country's largest export. In 2019, the private sector was estimated to constitute 15% of the economy, with federal government activity accounting for 75% and local government activity (including federal transfers) the remaining 10%.

Millania heavily relies on exporting digital technology services, however is starting to rely more on investment and material goods. Millania currently has multiple companies registered. Technological services account for a small percentage of Millania's economy. The largest contributors to the economy are the media, investment, and music sectors, dominated by monopolistic companies like Hoy Día Media, and the Millán Group. The rest of income is from government run services and exports. Millania scores a 2.8 on the Micronational Economic Potential Index.

Currency

Millania's national currency is the nemoda. One nemoda is equivalent to $1,000 COP. Paper is used to make the banknotes in Millania. They are produced by the Banco Nacional de Millánia (National Bank of Millania), from which printed banknotes are redistributed. The Bank of Millania issues banknotes in accordance with the principles and rules established within the Millanian Economy Act of 2018. As part of the Millanian Economy Act, the Bank of Millania produces the quantity of nemoda banknotes assigned to it, puts them into circulation, withdraws worn notes, takes part in the search for and experimentation of new security features and contributes to the definition of common standards for the quality of the notes in circulation and the fight against counterfeiting.

Millania also recognises the use of foreign currency such as the Hong Kong dollar, United States dollar, and Colombian peso. Millania holds one of the largest foreign currency reserves in micronationalism, amounting to many times its GDP.

Agriculture and fishery

Agriculture accounts for just under 2% of the GDP. Products include chili peppers, herbs, guavas, granadillas, limes, and coffee. The Ministry of Agriculture and The Environment announced a plan in 2022 to boost food production with the plantation of an orchard in Granada Nicosi, as well as a further plantation of several crops including more coffee, yucca, and plantains. Uribia and Llamaya and several territories contain pastures for cows, which are the only livestock raised in the country. Fishing is less prevalent and is only practiced in Crise, where needlefish are a common part of the diet.

Infrastructure

Transportation

Millania is estimated to have approximately a kilometre of roads, and another of foot paths. The primary mode of transportation in all territories is by car. In Embaldosado, it is followed by horseback. Approximately 90% of Millanian roads and footpaths are unpaved. The TransMillania trails allow for fast access by foot throughout the mainland and territories, and there are two roads suitable for motor vehicles, named Carretera 1 and Carretera 2.

Culture

Millania is home to many cultures and a wide variety of ethnic groups, traditions, and values. Mainstream Millanic culture is largely derived from the traditions of coffee growers in the Andean region. Colombian, and later Millanian culture, was established by a few spanish and british settlers, and shaped by the frontier settlement process, with the traits derived passed down to descendants and transmitted to immigrants through assimilation. Millanian culture and naming conventions have largely been affected by Sabia and Verona, with the inclusion of matronymics in a Millanian Name. Millania has developed a system to protect its tangible and intangible heritage and national treasures.

Music

Crown prince Nicolás Millán is the first and only major Millanian composer. He composed O, Millania, Concierto No. 1 for Contrabass, a suggestion for a Posafian anthem, and a fanfare for the Prince of Andany. He also wrote lyrics for the current Millanian anthem, the Himno Nacional, and the Military anthem, Millanian Military Men. Most Millanian produced music is classical. Classical music has also greatly shaped the taste of music in Millania. However, in 2019, a surge in popularity for Jazz and Latin music among Millanian youth was seen. The community of Japanese Millanians is known to follow J-Pop artists. Millanian music is also shaped by the rhythms of Colombia. Tiple, a small guitar-like instrument, is often played, usually with the uniquely Millanian balsaje rhythm.

Sport

Since the 2018 MOF Games, sports in Millania have increased in popularity. The most popular active sport in Millania is association football, followed by rugby and lacrosse. Basketball is also popular due to the large ethnic American population. Millania hosted the 2019 MOF Games, and earned the most medals, and placing second overall. Millania earned five medals in total: three gold, two silver, and no bronze.

The most popular game is Pool, played either classic or Millanic three-way (a 3-person game played normally with balls 1-5, 6-10 and 11-15 allocated to each player respectively). eSports are extremely popular in Millania, the most popular by far being Super Smash Bros Ultimate, Minecraft minigames, and League of Legends. Millania hosts its own Smash Bros league, under the Millanian Olympic Committee.

Millania's National sport is zepgagoscua, a variant of tejo which can be played without the explosive mechas.

Cuisine

Ajiaco is often associated with Millanian Cuisine.

Millania's national dishes include ajiaco, a thick soup consisting of potatoes, chicken, carrots, plantains, guascas (an exotic Colombian fruit), and more, made into a dish popular among Millanians. Another Dish is patacones con chili, a plantain cut into large chunks, fried, and then made into a pancake-like shape, and fried once more. Then, any topping is added, along with Millanian style chili sauce (Red peppers, onions, spring onions, etc. pickled into a chili sauce). On top of these dishes, campesino food including arepas, chicharrón, chorizo, and morcilla.

Media

The Heralda Pasabrilloía is Millania's most popular newspaper as of 2018; printed online. Most publications of any type of Millanian media are made in either english, or spanish. The most viewed video produced in Millania was the 2019 MOF Games Opening Ceremony, which achieved over a hundred views. The most popular social media in Millania is WhatsApp, followed by Instagram, Snapchat, Discord, and Facebook. The government hosts official groups on both discord and facebook.
