Idea

Dukian flag waving

Duke was the brainchild of Tom Kap. The idea was a small perfect nation with a stable government and no crime. Things have been going fine but with some incidents inside Duke. The people of Duke enjoy living in the mostly tax free nation and believe that a nation can be run just fine even if the ruler is a tween. Many of Dukes citizens believe Tom is doing a better job than his USA counterpart Donald Trump. Tom is a very kind but firm ruler. There are always speeches and the idea behind Duke was to also have an enthusiastic leader who could work with the people and contribute ideas to make the nation a better place.

Etymology

Our nation is called Duke, Because in the Ancient Dukian Language Duke means Nation for everyone

History

Duke was created when founder Tom Kap was furious at the outcome of American politics. His guerilla force fought a 8 month war and then established the People's Republic of Duke (Formerly the Republic of Duke) and on 5 October, Duke became independent. Several situations have happened so far, and Tom Kap has loved the micronational world, because he believes that it is not only a fun thing to do but something important and that Micronations show that anyone has the potential to create a nation and run just like anyother. He was inspired by Austenasia, Molossia, and Sealand. The Lonley Planet book of Micronations also inspired Tom. On 5 October 2017, the Empire of Duke declared independence. One week later, it was called the Republic of Duke. Afterwards, there was a change in the government and it changed its name to the People's Republic of Duke. The Duke Civil Conflict was a conflict that happened during the People's Republic period. After that, a Parliament was created. Now Duke is a benevolent autocracy led under President Tom Kap.

Governemntal Crisis of 2018

On July 21st 2018 Dukes current government collapsed due to several reasons: Inactivity of governmental officials, Javis Anti Duke rebel force, and other things. Tom created a provisional government that will last until September 1st 2018 at 11:59 pm. Then the Old government shall come together again. The provisional government was created to not turn Duke into a one man dictatorship over the summer. The participants of the Provisional government are going to be rewarded by the President for there commitment. After a couple of days the Provisional government was disbanded and Duke continued to be ruled normally.

Leadership

Duke used to be a dictatorship republic but a coup happened and it became the Peoples Republic of Duke on Febuary 23rd (After the Febuary 23rd incident). It is ruled by a single party known as the Topek party. Other political parties exist but the Topek Party is the majority of the Parliament with 6 seats out of 10. Elections for parliament representatives happen every 3 years. Duke is now in a democracy with vice presidential elections every 2 years.

Military

The military has 36 active members and a cyber warfare unit called Unit 22. There are 6 regiments each with 6 active members.

Law and Order

Duke is a benevolent Autocracy and part democracy. The court system is very similair to the United States. The Supreme Court is located in Chatham City and is run under judge Kirsten Kap. The Central Prosecuter is Zoe Kap. There are 4 types of Police:

  • Zangseunlay Duke Immigration Border Police
  • Duke Police
  • Duke Special Operations Police
  • Duke Security Police

There are 3 intelligence services

  • DNSA Duke National Security Agency - Operates Only In Duke (Now operates everywhere due to DNSA International security rpoposal/law)
  • DCIA Duke Central Intelligence Agency - Operates everywhere
  • DMIA Duke Military Intelligence Agency - Operates everywhere

Duke Postal Service

The Duke postal service is the offcial postal system of Duke. Stamps are issued. A message was sent from The Dukian Embassy in Sarasota to Chatham City using one American stamp and one Dukian. To the Governments surprise it sent and was recieved. The Duke Postal service sends local mail and mail sent internationally will have a stamp of the macronation thats nearest to the province and a Dukian stamp.

Duke Civil Conflict

The Duke Civil Conflict was a Government Conflict when The Dukian Governors argued over Laws. The Provinces of Donyang,Lesser Chatham,and Violet Box wanted to secede. It was intense and there were many protests and pro partion activists. Duke declared Martial Law when some areas began fighting Mainland Dukian people ( From Chatham Province). Both sides where to blame. The provinces then began speaking about starting peace talks. After 2 days the Governors talked and the Conflict ended with Duke not being Partitioned. . Tom Kap says that both sides won by keeping Duke whole instead of partitioning it.

Chatham City

Chatham City is the capital of Duke. It is also where the parliament and the Presidential district is based. President Tom Kap lives there. It is not the largest city as it is beat by Halangsu City in Hyesan Province and Klixan City in Klixan Province. It is the Capital of Chatham Province and is situated close to the US border. It is also next to Violet City in Violet Box S.A.R.

Taipang and the Zang River

These rivers are very important in Dukian Culture. They flow 1,080 miles downstream and they serve as a border for UNIS and Lesser Chatham Province to The USA. There real names are american but in Duke this is what we call them. One major conflict in the Dukian Conflict occured there with both sided fighting at the bank of the rivers. A lot of beautiful wildlife and Flora and Fauna inhabit the area.

Style

In Duke fashion is important. The most popular clothes now for men are the Kangera style. This is a military style jacket with a Songkok cap. These are usually worn by government officials and important Hyesanien Ethnic politicians. For women modern clothes is very popular but on traditional holidays they wear a Hanbok and a headscarf. Dukes traditional clothing is very diverse due to Dukian Citizens being of many diverse backgrounds. There is also a unisex fashion trend called a quera which is a braid in form of string clipped in hair. They are very popular especially among Dukian teenagers.
