Renoan Federal People's Democratic Republic (also officially known as the Renoan FPDR and informally as New Reno) is a micronation located in Portland, San Francisco Bay Area, Fresno, Huntington Beach, Sacramento and surrounding Sierra Nevada foothills. Formerly a socialist republic under Shaoshan, Sonora and Cascadia and shifting through periods of monarchism, it is now governed as a federal Parliamentary republic with the President exercising many rights of head of State but accountable to the the government. The legislative body is the Senate, which holds a prestigious and traditional role as the nation's diet. The head of government is the Prime Minister who presides over the Renoan Senate.
It was founded as a state of Shaoshan in 2015. On December 4, 2016, Shaoshan dissolved and New Reno became an integral part of the new state, Sonora. Despite rule from the socialist regime in Sonora, New Reno remained defiant as a dominant party state under the rule of the conservative, nationalist, and christian democratic National Party. In response, Sonora granted New Reno special administrative status, giving it greater autonomy. New Reno abolished the Earldom in favor of a constitutional republic. The Earldom retruned during the Winter of 2017-2018 but was reconstituted in February 2018. New Reno has fallen in and out of monarchism and republicanism, gaining its independence after the fall of socialism in Cascadia and the collapse of the Cascadian nation-state.
New Reno started as a town governed by its sole citizen and Governor, Ceres Smith, the great grandmother of Titania Smith. It was one of the most loyalist pockets to her regime and continued to hold the most prominence among other towns. It was upgraded to City status in November 2016 with the addition of two new citizens. On December 4, 2016, Shaoshan dissolved and the Marxian Premier reorganized the alliance into a empire, with agreement from the other two powers. Under the empire, the City of New Reno became a vassal state with semi-autonomy with the Sonoran monarch Earl and the Chief Minister as chief executive and head of the Renoan Senate. Following Sonora's socialist revolution, New Reno gained more autonomy as a special administrative region. It has since remained a self-governing entity. In March 2018, New Reno was granted the ability to retain its Special Administrative status while also being allowed to run a representative for the Sonoran National Assembly. For most of the rest of 2018, New Reno exercised a level of varying autonomy and bouts of independence, even engaging in aid to the rebels in the Sonoran Civil War. New Reno joined the Sonoran Confederation in November 2018 but when the Confederation collapsed, it de facto regained independence. In June 2019, it joined the Republic of Cascadia, formalizing its incorporation into its union. In October 2019, the Christian Democrats and Nationals, having united briefly as the Freedom Party, left with a handful remaining. The full former citizenry returned by January 2020. Since then, New Reno has been the center of Cacsadian political turmoil as it continuously toted the line between the socialist regime of Titania Smith and monarchism, touted by conservatives. In September 2021, following the collapse of the Smith regime, New Reno was the epicenter of monarchist sentiment, culminating in the re-establsihment of the Renoan monarchy.
In July 2022, after the overturning of Roe v Wade in the neighboring United States by the Supreme Court, anger and resentment fostered a growing sense for a people's democracy. Led by the former Empress, Titania Smith, herself a Marxist-Leninist, abolished the Monarchy and established a "federal people's democratic republic".

The Renoan Federal People's Democratic Republic is governed as a federal parliamentary republic. Its head of state is the President who operates as a ceremonial figurehead with the functions of the state executive while the Prime Minister, is head of government and leader of the Renoan Senate, breaking ties if deadlock occurs. The President, however, still maintains the role as the Commander-in-Chief of the People's Defense Force within the nation and has the power to declare war, however, the President still needs Senate approval for combat longer than 21 days. The Prime Minister is elected every three months. The People's Defense Force provides national and civil defense. The Renoan Senate is a representative body gathering through the form of parliamentary democracy to make policy and direct and progress the state.
