The name Nossia is derived of the greek lexicon of the same name. Meaning "A nest of birds".
In The Beginning
In the begining, Nossia was no more than a province of Lifréia, with the Kanfre's brother, the Kanfrerine Carlo acting as the governor. Lifreia had a iron grip on Nossia. Its control of the region was borderline dictatorial. The Nossian-Lifreian Civil War, internally known as "The July Massacre", was an event that ocurred when the nossian people, wanting their freedom from the Empire of Lifréia, decided to act. The subsequent battle was brutal, and occurred in the main square of the City of Astra.
Not long after, the Kanfre agreed with the proposition to give more liberty to Nossia, turning it to a "special region" (to the likes of Hong Kong and Macau). Unknowingly to the Kanfre, the 14th squadron of the "special region" of Nossia staged a coup. The Prince (then the "premier") subsequently went to self-imposed exile. The "special region" was controlled by a military junta while the Kanfre was on a diplomatic trip. Order in the region was restored in time for the New Year. The Independence was instituted in the 5th of january of 2016, as noted in the government's site.
In the final months of 2016, the small principality began to become more prominent, with the acquiring of a new citizen and the establishment of relations with various other nations.

Nossia currently has its own police force called "The Crown's Guard", that is tasked with Protecting the Princely Family and maintaining order in the provinces of the principality. The Crown's Guard currently uses the weapons that The Imperial Army of Lifréia has left in the country when it came to pacify Nossia.
Instant Recognition and Cooperation
In the late hours of the morning of the 6th of january of 2016, The Kanfre Lopes I contacted the Prince Carlo I, he proposed the creation of a alliance for friendly coexistence of the both and with open arms for countries with similar ideas, thus was born The Monarcho-Fascist Micronational Alliance. In October 2016, the Kanfre and the Prince met at at a restaurant to discuss the matter of the relation between their countries. The Nossian-Lifreian relations are now warm, but the distrust is mutual.

Nossia, strangely, doesn't had a proper army, but had a paramilitary wing of its nationalist party, known colloquially as the Black Shins, because of the black leather shin guards they used on the top of the boots. Nossia has mandatory conscription for all young men as of 16 years of age. The main troops are The 1st Prince's Rifles. The Principality's Sovereign Army (the official name for the black shins) teaches these young men in marksmanship, strategy, resources saving and military history classes. In the last, topics like the campaigns of Napoleon Bonaparte and Julius Caesar are teached.
Geography and climate
The terrain of the nossian territory has a considerably elevation, with the terrain covered with grass and sand, and some olive and apple trees.
The climate in Venice(and consequently, Nossia) is Mediterranean, but rather wet throughout the year. The most pleasant periods are spring and from mid-September. Winter is cold, with frequent fogs and sometimes some freezing in January. Summer - July and August - is often very hot and wet with high points which exceeds 35 degrees and violent storms possible. Venice(and Nossia) is frequently in flood.
The official currency in Nossia is the Nossian Crown, that has banknotes of 50, 100, and 500 Crowns. It is subdivided in coins of 50, 70 and 100 centos. In February 2016, The Prince decided to freeze the value the Crown had for the future and issue again the use of the Lifre, like in its old times as a province. The matter of the use of the currency will be discussed with the Kanfre in a visit of the Prince to the I Congress of the Nationalist Party of Lifréia. In March 2016, the Prince contacted personally the Kanfre about this deal, with the Kanfre declaring that "Lifréia doesn't need more beggars". Then the Prince brought the Nossian Crown back into circulation.
The nossian economy is a purely digital economy, being based in the government webpage. Nossian citizens and even foreigners can open bank accounts in the BPN(Banco do Principado de Nossia/The Principality of Nossia's Bank). Currently, the primary objective of the Cabinet of Economy is to turn the principality into a tax haven.
Is an habit for the people of Nossia to kneel or reverence the Prince every time he enters or leaves a room. Nossian people don't drink when eating, they do it after eating. Nossia has a strong Azorean, Northern Italian and Southern Brazilian cultural heritage, brought by the Sovereign Prince, Carlo I.
Nossia's only source of news is the government webpage, updated almost monthly, with diplomatic reports, princely announcements, political news, etc.
