Mona Ghazvini (Persian: مونا قزوینی) is a micronationalist and she's the former empress of Schalamzaar and since the empire is now defunct, she just considers herself as a micronationalist and micropatriologist.
She currently doesn't have any official roles in any active micronations and just works on ideas like AI controlled micronations and also she sees herself as a fan of The Network State idea. So she's now more of a scholar than a government official in the community.
