The People's Republic Of Tabastan is a nation surrounded by the US state of Oregon. Tabastan's main territory is just south of Portland. Tabastan's population is concentrated mostly on the Tabastanian Plateau, where density is the highest, and also in the Byrom Desert, in the city of Byrom.

Tabastan's government is very simple, with the People's Congress forming the main legislative body of the country. Within the People's Congress are the Council of Ministers and the Politburo. The Council of Ministers is composed of representatives from each county, and the politburo is composed of 5 elected members who govern state issues and create laws. Tabastanian Counties are grouped into three Provinces, and each province has a provincial government which has semi-sovereign authority over its territory, including the power to pass laws and impose provincial taxes, as well as to regulate county affairs.

Tabastan was liberated from US rule on March 24, During the Great Mason Wars. The country was founded as a refuge for Cowists around the world, and its official state religion is Cowisim.

Today, the nation is engaged in many large projects, including constructing a international heliport, and continuing the construction and upkeep of the Tabastanian National Highway Network. It was originally in a large amount of debt, but than the People's Congress authorized the creation of a new currency, the Kowe, which pulled the nation up out of poverty and created much industry.

Etymology

Tabastan originates from both the Persian and Tabastanian languages. The first syllable, Taba, is derived from the Tabastanian word for "Table", named after the many mesas and plateaus located on the Tabastanian Plateau. "Stan" is comes from the Persian word "land of". So the name, translated to English, means Land of tables.

History

In 2015, the concept of a Cowist nation was first conceived by the founding Fathers, Joshua Arnoldy and Ryan Ehrhart.

A time of relative peace came about. On January 20, 2017, the country was thrown into war, as an evil aggressor named Mason infiltrated the government, and attempted to take over. There was a long war that lasted until May 11, when the People's Liberation Army finally removed mason from the country. The constitution was signed the next day, and the People's Republic Of Tabastan was born. The People's Congress and the National Assembly were formed, and Joshua Arnoldy became Eternal President with Ryan Earhart as Prime Minister. Many government organisations were formed, and Tabastan finally became stable.

Common Propaganda Poster.

At the end of May, a Meerkat was discovered in a park near Tabastan, and was taken into the Nation's care. The Meerkat was named Adolf Larry, and became a national icon of Tabastan, along with the Great Porcupine. The Porcupine was an animal that was stuck at the top of the former Degeneratis Fence since Febuary, and had weathered through windstorms and heavy snows.

The nation plunged into debt as the new Tualatin City International Heliport was constructed. In September, the People's Congress declared the debt crisis a National Emergency, and all kinds of ideas were put forward to end the depression.

Tabastan organised a space launch site in the remote Byrom Desert within the Byrom National Security Site, named Area 22 in government documents. The Tabastanian National Space Agency (TNSA) is now testing new rockets in top secret.

Government and politics

The Tabastanian Politburo votes on most proposed bills. The Politburo is comprised of the five highest ranking members of the national government. The Eternal President and Prime Minister are elected by the people of Tabastan in free and democratic elections. Elections are held on the first days of each new year that the Congress is in session. The last election was held on January 5, and the overwhelming majority of the vote went to the Worker's liberation front party, which gained 98% of the national vote, assuring that Joshua Arnoldy and Ryan Earhart stayed in power. Also, some positions in government are elected, such as minister of the treasury and secretary of state.

Along with the Politburo, The Council of Ministers is the other major legislative body. The Council is comprised of representatives from each County. Each county has a number of representatives determined by the county's population. The representatives are elected by the voters of each county.

On the Regional Level, the 16 Counties are grouped into three Provinces, which each have a elected governor. Each County has a chairman, and each city has a municipal government, with Tualatin and Byrom cities having a City Council.

Law and order

The Tabastanian Judicial system is based on Cowist theocratic law. All Counties have a County Court, located in their capitol city. If a County Court decides that a crime is worthy of the National Supreme Court, than it is brought to there. Each Province has a Provencal Supreme Court, where higher crimes committed within the province are prosecuted. The National Supreme court prosecutes any crime committed within a National Park or other government owned area, as well as crimes referred to the court by citizens/ counties/ provinces.

Each city has a police force, and smaller towns have a limited police force as well, Provencal police are responsible for unincorporated areas.

Foreign relations

Tabastan currently has no relations with any other Micronation, but it recognizes any legitimate looking ones. The People's Republic also recognizes the Republic Of Kosavo and Palestine, as well as Catalonia. Tabastan also supports California's efforts to break off from the US, and classifies Saudi Arabia as a terrorist organisation. Tabastan does not recognize the United States of America as a legitimate country because the United States does not recognize Tabastan.
