Nova Senarica, officially the Democratic Republic of Nova Senarica, is a federal micronation located in the United Kingdom. The nation consists of five territories, the capital of which is Deerheath and most populated of which is Asopica. Nova Senarica covers an area of several square kilometres and has a subtropical seasonal climate. The Senarican culture|culture of Nova Senarica is based mostly around sport, as well as a general discontent with the British attitude that a person's worth can be measured by exam results. With a population of around 20 citizens, though only around half of them are active in the movement, and the High Council of Nova Senarica|High Council only recently established, few laws and little unique culture has been established.

Etymology

The name of the nation comes from Senarica in Italy, which was one of the smallest and longest-lasting Italian feudal states. For over four centuries, it remained independent from the larger and more powerful states around it, despite a population of only around 300. The name of the country is often abbreviated to The DRNS.

Nova Senarica has a unicameral political system involving the National Party and Liberal Party of Nova Senarica|Liberal Party. Whitworth, however, looks set to be represented by an Independent candidate, Sam Kelby. The five Councillors each get a specific responsibility in addition to representing their territory.

Parties

The National Party of Nova Senarica, led by the nation's first President of Nova Senarica, Elliott Nesso, is the largest party in the country, fielding candidates in four of the five territories. They were, however, unable to field a candidate in Whitworth. The core of the party is made up of Elliott Nesso, George Dixon and Owen Bookman, the three founders of the country.

The Liberal Party of Nova Senarica is the nation's second party. It is led by John Dixon, who took up his position as Opposition Leader when he observed that he "wouldn't trust his brother with a sandwich, let alone Stratdown". He managed to persuade Si Bookman and Tommy Nunn to support him in Cashouza and Asopica respectively.

Also standing in the April Election (Nova Senarica)|6th April General Election was Sam Kelby, the independent candidate for Whitworth who prefers to "stand behind his own ideologies rather than sequestering the party line". He was unopposed in his territory.

High Council

The High Council of Nova Senarica|High Council was last elected on April 6, 2014.

Territories

Nova Senarica has five Territories of Nova Senarica|territories: Asopica, Cashouza, Deerheath, Stratdown, and Whitworth. These territories were established within the first week of the Republic's existence. These territories have very little power in and of themselves, with a great deal of control being exerted by the High Council of Nova Senarica|High Council. Each territory contributes one member of the High Council, who is elected by the people of that territory. When a local election is tied, the Councillor is usually decided on the basis of whose party received most votes across the nation.

Each territory has its own feel: Asopica is an exclaved pair of houses, Cashouza is a pair of houses, only one of which is inhabited, Deerheath is the home of the president and capital of Nova Senarica, Stratdown is the most northern territory, and Whitworth is the least developed territory, used mostly for Senarican military|military exercises.
