The name "Plushunia" comes from the Romanian word for plush ("pluș"), as the country recognises plush toys as citizens.
The first attempts made by the incumbent President to organise a toy-based state were made in 2015 and 2017. The first version of Plushunia, created in 2015, was a federal state recognising toys as citizens, but the President did not suceed in organising a state, so this first incarnation of Plushunia remained largely dormant until 2017.
Foundation era/Early Hop era (20 October 2017 - 1 January 2018)
The current incarnation of Plushunia was created in October 2017 by Cristi, this time as a plush-based unitary parliamentary democracy. On 20 October 2017 the President officialy created the nation, naming Iepuroi Hop as provisional Prime Minister. First, the country was to recognise only plush toys as citizens, but after some Lego and plastic toy infrastructure and buildings were introduced by the very active Provisional Government, Lego figurines and plastic toy figurines were also granted citizenship. A few days after the foundation the first Plushunian political parties were created (see the Government and Politics section) and the 2017 legislative elections were held. The center-right Democratic Convention coalition (made out of the National Front, the National Liberal Party, the Democratic Party, and the Christian Democratic Union ) led by Iepuroi Hop won 50% of the votes and was given aproval by the President to form a government led by Iepuroi Hop (the Parliament not existing yet at the time of the election), the Hop Cabinet having the aim of organizing the key state institutions including the Parliament. The government also acted as the legislative of the country until June 2018, when the Parliament was organized according to the results of the election. The Hop Cabinet was sworn into office on 1 November 2017 and was very popular during the first months of its term, and it implemented several popular measures such as the building of several apartment buildings and the creation of the public transportation system in Pluseni.
Middle Hop era (1 January 2018 - 1 March 2018)
The Hop cabinet's popularity declined during January, after it decided to adopt authoritarian policies and implemented several failed economic policies that almost led to the country's dissolution, together with the incapacity of the Cabinet to organize the Parliament for almost 8 months after the election and its failure to manage the February Riots organised by the National Conservative Alliance, which attempted to re-establish the old federal system. After the riots, the Hop Cabinet was forced to leave Pluşeni (the only teritory of the Bucharest Region at the time) and became a government-in-exile. After the riots the President mostly lost interest in Plushunia, which entered a period of dormancy and anarchy.
Re-foundation era/Late Hop era (1 May 2018 - 25 June 2018)
The Government only returned in May, at the request of the President, which became interested again in Plushunia, and order was re-established in Plushunia after a conflict called the National Liberation War, during which the Government regained Pluşeni. Following the return of the legitimate government, the country went trough a period of reconstruction which lasted until June. During May and June the influence of Iepuroi Hop over the nation's politics also declined, making way on the political stage for other politicians, many of which mostly unknown before. Finaly, after months of disputes between the Liberals, the rest of the Democratic Convention, the Social Alliance and the federalist National Conservative Alliance, the Government organized the Parliament in June 2018. June 2018 also saw the rise of the Social Alliance, widely considered as the only real alternative to the Democratic Convention, and the latter's loss of the political hegemony it had during the preceding eras. The Hop Cabinet was finaly dismissed on 25 June after the Liberals left the Democratic Convention and proposed a motion of no confidence which passed with 13 votes in support to 12 votes against and 5 abstentions.
Early Socialist era (25 June 2018 - 1 August 2018)
After the Hop Cabinet was dismissed 15 members of the Parliament resigned to force snap elections, which were organised on 26 June 2018. The parties from leftist Social Alliance won together 68% of the votes after the Democratic Party left the Democratic Convention and joined the Social Alliance together with the new Social Democracy Party. The alliance, made out of the Toys' Worker Party (PMJ), the Social Democratic Party (PSD), the Popular Revolutionary Front (FPR), the Democratic Party (PD) and the Social Democracy Party (PDS) managed to defeat the National Liberal Party and what remained of the Democratic Convention (the National Front, the Christian Democratic Union and the new National Christian Democratic Peasants' Party (PNȚCD) and proposed PMJ president Ursu Polarescu for the prime minister office, which was given confidence by the Parliament to form a Cabinet, which passed too the confidence vote. During the first weeks of the term of the Ursu Polarescu I cabinet the democracy started to make itself felt, with the Parliament elaborating the first formalised laws and starting to draft the first Constitution of Plushunia. On 15 July all parties in Plushunia opened simultaneously their Congresses, effectively paving the political road of Plushunia for the following months. On 27 July the Christian Democratic Union was absorbed by the National Christian Democratic Peasants' Party, and on 30 July the Democratic party left the Social Alliance and formed the Alliance of the Liberals and Democrats (ALDe) together with the National Liberal party and the National Christian Democratic Peasants' Party, thus ending the Social Alliance's political hegemony over Plushunia. 30 July also saw the dissolution of the Democratic Convention, which remained with only one member (FN) after the departure of PNȚCD, and on 31 July 2018, after the Social Alliance lost its majority following the departure of the Democratic Party, the said party joining ALDe, Plushunia entered a political crisis caused by the 50/50 parliament deadlock between the government and the opposition.
Late Socialist era (1 August - 20 September 2018)
After the Socialsts lost their majority in the Parliament and political hegemony ovei Plushunia, the Polarescu I cabinet was restructured and became the Polarescu II cabinet, supported by both AS and FN. Despite the Socialists now had a strong enemy (the Alliance of the Liberals and Democrats), it managed to win an important victory: the Vice Presidential election on 3 and 4 August, when Cățeluș Slobozeanu (Social Alliance candidate) won the first round with 38% and the second round with 51%, just four votes ahead of the runner up Ghiță Purcel, becoming Plushunia's second Vice President. After the election though, the government entered a period of relative inactivity characterised by the absence of the President from Plushunia. The period of inactivity lasted just one week, after which the President returned from his vacation and started to collaborate with the Government in creating several laws. On 17 July the opposition leader Ghiță Purcel made a press statement in which he criticised the Government's apparent lack of activity (no law passed between 1 and 19 August), to which the Government responded by submitting several laws to the Parliament for adoption. In late August, the Social Alliance also decided to adopt a programme which will put Plushunia "on the road to Socialism". However, the programme was poorly received by the middle class of Plushunia, who started large-scale protests in Plușeni. The state authorities and the security forces however decided to suppress the protests, while the angry protesters clashed with the security forces. Outnumbered, the security forces of Plushunia were defeated and switched sides, leading to the enrollment by the government of working-class Plushunians (supporters of the leftist Government) in militias which were used against the protesters to defend the Government. However, the militias were also defeated by the angry rioters, who used captured Security Force personnel and equipment to ensure their victory in Plușeni, forcing the Government to flee the city and move its headquarters in 1 Iunie, a settlement in the metropolitan area of Plușeni.
Plushunia during the Plushunian Civil War (September 2018 - December 2018)
Following their victory over the government forces, the rebels established the Plushunian National Republic in the controlled areas of Plușeni. The republic was governed by the Revolutionary Comitee, the only legislative, executive and judicial institution of the National Republic, which was only a provisional institution that was meant to administrate the Republic until the eventual victory or defeat of the revolutionaries. The Comitee ruled over Pluseni with an iron fist, often arresting and sometimes even alowing the angry rebel bands to brutalise Government sympathisers and partisans in an attempt to minimise opposition to revolutionary rule. However their rule over the territory was not easy, since they were continuously confronted by both the remaining Government forces and a number of pro-Government partisans and forces that remained behind the lines of the rebels. Those forces, loyal to the Government, still held areas of Plușeni during the revolution, making multiple attempts to break the rebel encirclement and sabotaging rebel activities. By October, the revolution has turned into a full-scale civil war, with daily bitter clashes between the two sides and with many political groups supporting either the rebels (ALDe, FN) or the Government (AS), and some regions even declaring independence (the Plușeni commune Baia, the Arges Region). Despite Pluseni was torn apart by the raging war, in other regions, like Ialomița, the war had little to no effect on the lives of the Plushunian citizens. However, the balance of power completely changed after the President allowed the Government to hire two platoons (~60 soldiers) of professionally trained, fully equiped infantry soldiers, forming the core of the Plushunian Army. The brand new army won many victories against the rebels, who proposed a ceasefire on 14 November, 2 months after the start of the war. A few weeks later, a treaty between the two parties mediated by the President and signed by the two belligerents, which later was expanded to include all four warring parties (the Government, the rebels, the Baia commune and the Arges region), treaty which kept the unity of Plushunia under Socialist rule (the pact stipulated that Prime Minister Polarescu, his cabinet and the parliament elected on 26 June 2018 were supposed to remain in power until 1 November 2019, with the October 2018 elections being canceled), however the Polarescu II cabinet would have to give more authonomy to the regions and make some political concessions to the right-wing rebels (like cancelling most of the "Plushunia's road to Socialism" programme) This treaty served as a de facto constitution to the new, more decentralised Plushunian State, and came to be known as the Quadripartite Pact.
Postwar era (December 2018 - March 2019)
The Pact brought political and economical stabillity to Plushunia, but it lasted for only five months, until, in March 2019, Iepuroi Hop started the "March coup" by discovering that it was unconstitutional and reported this to the President. After recieving those news, the head of state decided to declare the pact as unconstitutional and void, told the government to resign and called for immediate elections to decide the fate of Plushunia. Initially the Polarescu II Cabinet refused to resign, considering the President's decree to be an attempt to start a "reactionary coup", although after the Plushunian Army and the most of the Parliament decided to support the President, the government decided to resign. Following that, the leftist Social Alliance split into two parties following a dispute over the government programme the alliance will have should it win the snap elections: the Plushunian Socialist Party, supporter of far-left policies and of the "Plushunia's road to Socialism" programme, and the Social Democratic Party, a more moderate, center-left party, more open to colaboration with the center-right ALDe. Another important change was the reformation of the National Front, whose leaders, upset with the low electoral scores of the party in the last elections, decided to merge the party with the Revolutionary Movement Party, the political arm of the Revolutionary Movement, an organisation founded by some participants in the September Revolution to militate for the values of the said revolution. After the merger, the new party was named the Save Plushunia Union (USP) and rebranded itself as a modern, progressive party. This move was proved to be very succesful, since ALDe and USP formed a coalition which won the election, leading to the formation of a new right-wing cabinet led by Liberal leader Ghiță Purcel.
Present era (since 1 April 2019)
Despite the Liberal - USP victory at the elections, the Purcel cabinet decided to act as a caretaker government, with no important reforms being made. Some Socialist and Social Democrat leadetas even accused Purcel that his cabinet did not bring the economical growth and encouragement of private enterprise it promised during the electoral campain, with most of the Plushunian economy stil being represented by the state-owned sector, the same situation as in the Socialist times, and many state enterprises were even abandoned (like the Plushunian Vehicle Company) because the lack of demand, caused economical stagnation. However the Purcel cabinet improved the living conditions for many Plushunians after it almost completely redesigned and rebuilt Pluseni, the devastated capital of Plushunia, the new apartment blocks built by the Purcel cabinet being larger and less cramped than the old, Hop-era buildings. The Purcel cabinet also invested much more in scientific research and in education than the previous governments, with a lot of resources being invested in the Plushunian Academy of Sciences, a new institution created by the cabinet. Recently, a political scandal stemming from Iepuroi and Judy Hop's loss of parliamentary immunity following a vote in the Parliament (the two are being involved in the currently investigated "abusive expropriations" case, in which Iepuroi and Judy are accused of abuse of power, the loss of parliamentary immunity for the pair allows further investigation and ultimately trial by a criminal court) has caused a political crisis in Plushunia, with the pro-Hop faction of the USP separating from the rest of the party and leaving government (thus forming a new opposition political group named the National Front), split which led to the Purcel government becoming a minority cabinet. However the now-majoritary opposition was split between the leftist Plushunian Socialist Party and Social Democratic Party and the right-wing National Front, which completely refused any colaboration with the left. The crisis left Plushunia into an unstable situation, with a grand coalition government between the Liberals, USP and Social Democrats led by Purcel being formed (the Purcel II cabinet). The new government took office on 1 July.
Government and politics
Plushunia is a unitary parliamentary republic, and it is a highly centralised state, as no administrative subdivisions had yet been legaly defined. It is a representative democracy, and the power is divided between the three separate powers of the state, and separation of powers and rule of law are supreme values of Plushunia.
In Plushunia political pluralism is also very important and emphasised on, for there exist 8 registered political parties in Plushunia.
The Plushunian Parliament
The Plushunian Parliament is the legislative of Plushunia, and it is organised according to the principles of representative democracy. It is an unicameral legislature and it is composed of 30 members elected yearly using the party-list proportional election system. It votes all laws in Plushunia except of the Constitution or the constitutional ammendments. It also votes confidence votes and motions of no confidence. It meets on a weekly basis but it can be convocated in extraordinary sessions by the President or the Prime Minister.
The head of state office in Plushunia is the Presidency of Plushunia. It consists of a President and a Vice President. The functions are almost equal and the two make decisions together as a pair, but the President is both de jure and de facto more important than the Vice President, as the President only represents the nation on the foreign plan and cuts the red ribbon at inaugurations, and the Vice President does not and is considered to be subordinate to the President. The President and the Vice President are elected separately for a 1 year term (Vice President) and a 2 year term (President), and can compete for any number of terms. The presidential pair has the power to veto Parliament and Government acts, to appoint judges, dissolve the Parliament and appoint the Prime Minister from the majority party/coalition from the Parliament, the Prime Minister candidate being proposed by the majority party/coalition. The pair has to take decisions with the accord of both members. The presidential pair members may be deposed individualy by referendum. The last election for the Vice President was held on 3 and 4 August 2018.
The Government of Plushunia is the executive of Plushunia and has the role of running the country on a daily basis and aplying the laws trough government decrees. It also acts as the legislative of Plushunia in the absence of the Plushunian Parliament. The incumbent Cabinet is led by the National Liberal Party leader Ghiță Purcel and has the following structure:

Law and order
The Plushunian Supreme Court of Justice is the supreme court of Plushunia and the country's nominal court of last resort. As it is the only court in Plushunia, it handles all cases filed in the the country, and serves as well as the constitutional court of the country. It has 5 judges, of which one serves as the President of the Supreme Court. The judges are appointed by the presidential pair and are given a confidence vote by the Parliament and the Government.
For almost 9 months since its foundation Plushunia had an isolationist foreign policy, but this ended on 14 July 2018 when the President, the Vice President and the Minister for Internal Affairs, Justice, National Defence and Foreign Affairs decided to have Plushunia join the MicroWiki Community. Currently Plushunia has diplomatic relations with two nations, Juclandia and Sabia and Verona, which also recognise plush toys as citizens. However, during the Plushunian Civil War, the Government decided to shut down the international edition of the Plushunian News Service and to start a new period of isolation, in a bid to avoid any news leaks of the then-ongoing civil war, that could have possibly turned into an international affair should those news leak. This policy continued for 10 more months, until the Purcel cabinet decided to re-open the MicroWiki Commision of the External Affairs Department
The Plushunian military is represented by the Plushunian Army, a well equiped force responsible for both national defence and the upkeep of public order in Plushunia. It consists of two fully equiped infantry platoons stationed in the military garrison of Pluseni, (formed in late 2018) which consists of about 60 soldiers and officers in service, as well as three light infanty platoon squads (one for each region, the largest one in the capital) formed in early 2018, named the Plushunian Security Force, which carries out police-like duties. The Army also has a small motorised section, consisting of a few toy-size tanks and mobile artilery units. Most of the Plushunian military infrastructure (the infantry platoons, the tanks and the Pluseni Garrison) was put into use during the Plushunian Civil War by the government, which needed a profesional, properly equiped army to defeat the rebel forces and restore order. Since then, the Army has become a key institution of the State, the Plushunian citizens being particulary fond of the Army. Currently Plushunia did not take part in any war between micronations, but the Plushunian Army and the Security Forces did fight in several internal conflicts.
Geography and climate
Plushunia is divided in regions (regions with residents) and territories (regions with no residents), which are further divided in urban communes (cities) and rural communes. Every rural commune with more than 50 permanent residents and/or urban living standards and developent level becomes an urban commune. Some urban communes with over 100 residents and advanced development level (high employment rate, industrial or consumerist economy, economical growth, good living conditions and developed public services) may be declared municipalities, wich are divided in urban communes called sectors.
|Region / territory||Region code||Population||Area (square meters)||Governor||Structure of Regional Council|
|Ialomița Region||IL||~100||1000||Mioara and Ion||TBD|
The Bucharest Region is the smallest region, at less than 100 square meters, but at 375 residents, it is by far the most populous region and has the highest population density of all. It is a mainly urban region, and most citizens live in apartment blocks. It is divided in the following subdivisions:
|Municipality code||Commune code||Population||Area (square meters)||Communal mayor||Structure of Local Council||Municipality mayor||Structure of General Council|
|Plușeni||Unirea - Industriilor||BP||BPU||~100||~1.5||TBD||TBD||TBD||TBD|
The Ialomița region is the second smallest region (at par with Aureşti), and the second most populous. It is divided between the completely urbanised Upper Ialomița commune and the mostly rural Lower Ialomița commune. The population density, development level and urbanisation are lower than in the Bucharest region, and the economy is mostly agriculture-based. The region is an important administrative center, for it is the residence of two Presidential Counsellors and the Electoral Commision is also located there. It is divided in the following communes:
|Municipality code||Commune code||Population||Area (square meters)||Communal mayor||Structure of Local Council||Municipality mayor||Structure of General Council|
|N/A||Lower Ialomița||N/A||ILJ||~ 20||~700||TBD||TBD||N/A||N/A|
The Plushunian economy is a developing economy and is based mostly around agricultural activities, industries and services. It is mainly state-owned, with only a few private enterprises being active.
The Bucharest Region is a mainly urban region, and the economy of the region is based on industries (construction industry, food processing industry, automotive industry) and services (apartment leasing, food and commodities distribution, public transport), but the industrial products and services are available only for the plush toy citizens, and are only for domestic use. In the region most buildings and land are state-owned and rented to the individuals, enterprises and cooperatives, and most of the enterprises are state-owned. The employment rate in the Bucharest Region is the highest in Plushunia (about 60%).
Ialomița and Arges regions
The Ialomita and Arges regions are mainly rural regions, and their economy is based on agricultural activities. Most of the agricultural products are available only for the human population and while the Ialomița region products are only for domestic use, the Argeș Region is the only and largest exporter in Plushunia, some 60% of the products being exported. In the regions most of the land is privately owned, and the employment rate is low.
The official currency of the country is the Plushunian Ban. The Ban is a non-physical currency, as no banknotes are printed and the Bani only exist on the SNP (National Payment System) fiscal notes.
The National Payment System
The National Payment System (Ro: Sistemul Național de Plată) is a paper-based payment system. The system relies on uninominal fiscal notes, on which all spendings and earnings made by their owners are noted, together with other data regarding the transactions. The Plushunian Bani exist only on the fiscal notes, and all items are bought using the fiscal notes.
An important economical mechanism in Plushunia is the employee cooperative system. According to this system the employees from one company put in common their wages and propriety to form a cooperative, in which the money and goods of the cooperative members are democratically administrated. The association in cooperatives is voluntary, but the State decided to boost cooperative creation by enrolling state employees in cooperatives and giving special benefits to cooperatives and their members. An important benefit of the system is reduction of the National Payment System bureaucracy by merging individual fiscal notes into collective cooperative-based fiscal notes.
Despite its name, Plushunia does not recognise only plush toys as citizens. But in the nation the plush toys are the majoritary ethnic group, with over 60% of the citizens being plush toys. Other ethnic groups, despite their members are not plush toys, have their members also recognised as citizens. These groups are plastic toys (est.100 Plushunians) and Lego figurines (est. 50 Plushunians). The least largest ethnic group are the Romanians (7 Plushunian citizens). Apart from the office of President and some Presidential Counsellors most Plushunian politicians are of plush toy ethnicity, as are most Plushunian personalities.
As Plushunia is a new micronation, its culture is not well developed, but it is based on the Western culture and socialist and liberal influences. The country has no officialy established cultural institutions, but the incumbent Government promised the development of culture in Plushunia. Romanian culture is also an important part of the Plushunian culture, the former being most emphasised in the Arges region.
National symbols and holidays
The national symbols of Plushunia, although recently created, play an important role in its culture. The national symbols of Plushunia are:
- The National Anthem (Te slăvim, Pluşunie)
- The Coat of Arms (to be created)
- The National Flag
The official holidays are:
- Foundation Day (20 October)
- Winter Holidays (24 December - 1 January)
- Easter Day (eastern Orthodox Easter)
- Workers' Day (1 May)
- Children's Day (1 June)
- Anthem Day (25 July)
- Flag Day (31 July)
Aditionaly, the Government can decree two-week Official Vacations, during which only half of the population works (one half in one week, one half in the other week).
The only Plushunian media institution is the Plushunian News Service, a online news service owned by the government. In the country are also available Romanian radio and television. The Plushunian Movie Theater was also opened in the evening of 31 July.
