The People's Republic of Ponderosa Hills, commonly known as Ponderosa Hills or Pondo, is a one-party socialist micronation, ceremonially claiming the territory of Tuolumne County, but de facto claiming part of the Ponderosa Hills neighborhood. It completely surrounds the Baustralian province of Dynexistan, and is near the Stanislaus Soviet Republic, a territorial entity of Quebec. It is enclaved by the United States. It has a de jure population of 54,170, but only has 7 citizens. It is ruled by the Socialist Worker's Party, a Marxist-Leninist party, and the sole legal political party in the country.

Etymology

The name "Ponderosa Hills" comes from the neighborhood (called Arastraville officially) with the same name. The neighborhood named "Ponderosa Hills" because it is located in a Ponderosa pine forest, and is made upon a large number of hills.

The official name of Ponderosa Hills is the People's Republic of Ponderosa Hills, but is commonly known as Ponderosa Hills, and is sometimes called Pondo by residents of Ponderosa Hills.

History

First socialist state

The first incarnation of the People's Republic of Ponderosa Hills was founded on 26 July 2016 by a 10 year-old Leon Montan. The nation was a de jure one-party state, however no political parties existed at the time. After the foundation of the country, Leon Momtan appointed himself as President, and his cat, Sixy Montan, as Prime Minister.

This entity was quickly forgot about, and was replaced by a more democratic republic once the President remembered about the entity.

Republic

In the November of 2017, Leon Montan remembered about the original People's Republic of Ponderosa Hills, so he created the Republic of Ponderosa Hills. A constitution was drafted, explaining the claims and government of Ponderosa Hills.

Kingdom

Not much was written down about the Kingdom of Ponderosa Hills, but it was led by King Sixy I, now known as Sixy Montan, and was created on 27 April 2018. Leon Montan was the Prime Minister. It ended when Leon Montan declared the Empire of Ponderosa Hills.

Empire
