Polanda, officially the Republic of Polanda (Castilian: República de Polanda), is a micronation located in the Iberian Peninsula. It is governed by an elected Prime Minister holding executive powers and an unicameral parliament based on the strict application of direct democracy.
The word Polanda came up randomly. The idea of creating a micronation was already in the air, but there was a big gap: The name. During a random conversation, one person said Polanda instead of Polonia (Spanish word for Poland). People liked Polanda, so it was established as the name of the new nation.

He can also ban laws, but the Parliament can skip the ban if they approve it with absolute majority. If the Prime Minister resigns or dies, the Viceprime Minister would suceed him as Head of State and Government. There are protocols to assure the government continuity.
