Pre Parka states
Before the formation of the Zanovian Republic there were 20 separate independent states in the are of today's Republic.
Out of those 20 independent states there were:
4 Duchies: Duchy of Zemalga, Grand Duchy of Monda and Agama, Duchy of Woodlands, Partyns Grand Duchy.
4 Kingdoms: Kingdom of Loftinium, Grand Kingdom of Aneniye, Kingdom of Parka, Kingdome of Losemberg.
3 Constitutional monarchies: Ezidyanium, East Zeimeguden, Merkamin.
6 Republics: Republic of Ezamul, Seishellian Republic, Republic of Karamoon, Bigwood Republic, South Parkan Republic, Palma.
On April 5, 1875 the "Congress of Union" was held in Šakiai to discuss the question of cooperation between the Kingdom of Parka, Seishellian Republic, Partyns Grand Duchy, Kingdome of Losemberg, Ezidyanium, East Zeimeguden, Republic of Karamoon, Bigwood Republic, South Parkan Republic, Zeimeguden Union and Union of Separate States. During the congress and idea arose of unifying these states. At first the suggestion was dismissed and booed. It was only on April 7, 1877 that the idea was reconsidered and taken seriously. Because of the tough times for the countries and aggressive neighbors the suggestion was discussed and work towards it's possibility was started. At the end of 1878 a declaration of independence and unification of the 11 states was signed creating a democratic republic with a democratically elected parliament (Parlamenntul) and a temporary costitution, naming the country - The Parkan Republic.
The name for the new state was chosen as the Parkan Republic because of the big initiative of the Kingdom of Parka during the formation of the new country and because of the big number of ethnic parkans in the area.
Formation of the Republic (1878-1916)
After the declaration of independence in 1878 a new country by the name of the Parkan Republic was created.
At first the newly created state was hated by it's neighbors. There were a lot of attempts to occupy Parka and split the land, which would have been easily possible, because of the poor economy and a small army at the beginning of the republics existence. The occupations were avoided, because of a smart ultimatum that the Parkan Republic proposed: (An extract from the "Document of Ultimatum" ("D Dokkummenntuljyen o D Ultikmatummat"))
- <... If the noble neighbors of the New Republic of Parka attempt to occupy any territory of our State, we, the Parliament of The Republic, shall contact the "Государственный совет" of the Russian Empire and politely ask to join the union with the russians, which would put the army of the Russian Empire in Parka, making it easy for Russia to attack You, our noble neighbors, and dissolve Your kingdoms and republic ...>

The Republic (1990-present)
Parka, through it's history, had a couple of flags and three coat of arms.
The first flag of Parka was adopted in 1879 and had unique design of a Swallowtail. The symbol on the flag was called "Vjyenotara" and had the meaning of peace and unity between men and women, Parka and it's neighbors or other ethnic groups in the area, the four bars surrounding the "Vjyenotara" symbolized the four regions of Parka at the time. The flag looked very similar to the flag of the Korean Empire, because of this similarity in 1898 the Parlamenntul had a discussion on changing the national flag. A suggestion was made to have a flag with three equal horizontal stripes going green-white-green from top to bottom (this suggested flag design was later used as the flag of Parlamenntul 1918-1931). A need for a national symbol on the flag arose. The "Vjyenotara" was a choice, but because of the similarities to the flag of the Korean Empire it wasn't used. The decision was made to use a red ball in the center of the flag as a national symbol, with the meaning of courage (the red color) and perfection (the circular ball). The golden bars were added to represent the wealth and bright future of the country. This flag was used till the German occupation of Parka in 1916.
After regaining independence in 1918 for a short period of time Parka used a flag with three horizontal stripes, two smaller light green ones on top and bottom of the flag and a bigger white one in the middle with the new coat of arms in the center of the flag. This was a temporary design and in 1920 it was changes again to the flag that is used today (1920-1950, 1990–present). This time the red circle was shifted to the right side of the flag, symbolizing the movement forward and the movement to the future. The golden bars were taken off, because the material used to make the golden color was scarce and expensive.
In 1950, when the government was taken over by the "Komjyenjyen" the national symbols were changes as well. The older flag of Parka (1898-1916) was used, with the exclusion of the golden bars, which were swapped for smaller light green ones, which meant the fertile lands besides the rivers Neman and Siesartis. A variant flag was also used, that had the hammer and sickle in the middle of the red circle to symbolize the main political party of the country. This flag design was also used as the "Komunnistjyonnenn" party's flag (1950-1995).
After the collapse of communism in East Europe and in The Dictocratic State of Parka the communist symbolism was dismissed and the national symbols of the Third Parkan Republic were the flag of Parka 1920-1950 and the Parkan coat of arms 1918-1950.
The Parkan Republic's borders are mostly situated by the rivers.
The whole northern border of Parka is situated by the Neman river. The western border ran along the river Šešupė. The southern border was a bit trickier. It first runs by the Siesartis river, then at the village of Gotlybiškiai it curves to the airport area, then goes back up and follows the Siesartis again. At the special district of Partyns it goes down to surround the village of Papartynai and then back up to Siesartis and at the district of Girėnai
The capital of the republic is Šakiai . The Republic of Parka is divided into 12 states and 2 special districts.
State of Ezamul (center - Lukšiai), Monda (center - Slavikai), Lofta (center - Kiduliai), Losemberg (center - Švarpliai), Zemalga (center - Žygėnai), Ananen (center - Gelgaudiškis), Seishell (center - Prūseliai), Dyeshegera (center - Siaustuvėliai), Ezidiya (center - Plokščiai), Zalgiris (center - Kubiliai), Gerdshiya (center - Agurkiškė), Palma (center - Svaiginiai)
States of Parka
From the full name of the country, you can guess, that Parka has states. There are 12 States and 2 Speacial Districts.
States: Monda, Lofta, Losemberg, Zemalga, Ananen, Seishell, Dyeshegera, Ezidiya, Zalgiris, Gerdshiya, Ezamul, Palma.
Special Districts: Shakiai, Partyns.
Ezamul is the biggest state in the Parkan Republic. The history of joining the union is pretty complicated, because before becoming one of the states, Ezamul was it's own republic - The Republic of Ezamul (m Ezahmoolh Kaspadentess). The Ezamul Republic was established in October 1706 and because of a poor economy and a corrupt government (1862-1892) almost collapsed. Not having any where to go in 1892 the Ezamulian parliament (EsKZS) had a choice of either becoming a part of Lithuania or a part of Parka. Because at that time Lithuania was under the control of the Russian Empire the Ezamulian parliament chose to unite with Parka. Till the 1950s the state of Ezamul was calm and quite, mostly living off agriculture and selling products grown in it's boarders, but after Parka became a Dictocratic State patriotic feelings started to rise. In 1958 ezamulians had a revolution against the regime.
