Ostton, officially the Federal Republic of Ostton, is a micronation located in Europe and Oceania. Ostton borders with the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Greece, Italy and Australia. Ostton is a Semi-presidential republic.

History

Ostton was founded in June 2021 as a federation of two cantons after a dispute causing the inactivity and subsequent dissolution of the Estror Republic. It has since grown to have six cantons. For most of its history Ostton has been a federation however there have been brief periods, for example during provisional governments, in which it has been unitary with provinces and appointed governors instead of elected cantonal institutions. Throughout much of its history it has suffered instability, despite managing to remain Democratic throughout this and having many changes of constitution. The current constitution was published on 18 September 2022.

Politics

Ostton is a federal semi-presidential republic. The President of the Federation is the head of state, head and commander in chief of the armed forces and has many reserve powers including to dissolve the National Assembly without consulting its speaker or the government, however the president is instructed by the constitution not to be involved with the executive and he cannot attend meetings of the federal government without the permission of the prime minister, who is the head of government, this is intended to provide a balance of powers, and avoid a strong president or a strong government. The National Assembly is tasked with making laws, holding the government to account, approving the programme of government, impeaching the president if necessary, and approving amendments to the constitution and other constitutional laws.
