Brienia, officially the Kingdom of Brienia (Croatian: Kraljevina Brienja) is an entity that claims to be sovereign state but is more commonly known as a micronation by external observers, that holds claims in Croatia, the United Kingdom and Antarctica. The Kingdom formally declared sovereignty on 1 February 2020. Brienia has 3 counties, 5 principalities and has a population of more than 45 citizens.

Brienia calls itself a themed micronation, its theme is mediaval Croatia and mediaval Serbia, thus making it a historic micronation. The state religion of Brienia is Orthodox Christianity, which is the main religion of the Church of Brienia.

Brienia is the only formal succesor to the Holy Empire of Obador, and is head of the Commonwealth of Obador, which is a confederation between the Protectorate of Glyndwr and the Kingdom of Brienia. The head of Brienia is King Ivan Brienović.

Etymology

The word "Brienia" has no meaning. It is simple name used to describe the whole Kingdom, even though there were more historic names for the Kingdom. First name of the Kingdom was "Obador", which was inspired by the smaller internet group Ivan participated in. Second name of Obador was Monoslavia, which meant "One slavia (slavic country)". Third name was Nichensbourg, "bourg" meaning town on French and "Nichen" being word without any meaning. Fourth name was Ermenstein that had no meaning.

History

Foundation

Kingdom of Brienia was founded in February 2018, correctly 1 February 2018. It started as sort of friendly project, a hobby. At that time, there were few similar projects in same city. Due to this, there were few disputed between Obador and other entities, some of which resulted in larger conflicts, some resulted in smaller conflicts, some resulted in creation of neutral zones. This era is called "Offline era".

Unification with other entities

Some of these conflicts were solved, some resulting, as said, in formation of neutral zones, but some resulted in unifications. One of these entities has decided to join Obador and form a new nation. This new nation was called "Monoslavia", it was formed as socialist government which was owned by legislature which elected Ivan Brienović as Premier of Monoslavia. Due to this, newly-formed Monoslavia was unstable, leading to its disestablishment and formation of Ultimative Monoslavian Kingdom in June 2019.

Twitter affair

Joining Twitter Community in July 2020 was first step to join wider online community. Due to what the King viewed as political correctness, Monoslavian conservative policies were not accepted, which has resulted with harassment of the Monoslavian Government. At that time, Monoslavia marked 1 year since conflict between Monoslavia and other entity, resulting in unification, Monoslavia has decided to return to name "Obador". In same time, Obador has met another entity called "Illinois Soviet Socialist Republic", which was a smaller micronation run by Andrew Franson. It was Obador's ally at that time, but due to disagreements between mr. Fransons and mr. Brienović, mr. Franson has decided to expose certain details about their disagreements (signing document to leave organisation). This has caused Obador leave online community and return to offline community.

Ermenstein and return

After leaving online community, Obador has yet again changed its name, this time to Nichensbourg, but then again changed its name to Ermenstein. Ermenstein is direct succesor of Obador. It was time when Ermenstein has started getting more features. After longer consideration, Ermenstein has decided to return to online community. At this time, Ermenstein has met new ally and friend, Socialist Republic of New Prussia. They have stood up for Ermenstein's rights. But due to disagreements and issues between leader of New Prussia and mr. Brienović, New Prussia decided to cut relations.

In January 2020, Ermenstein changed name to Brienia.

From Principality to Kingdom

In April 2020, new Prime Minister of Brienia, Christopher Miller, has helped Brienia become greater and made Brienian community larger. In April, Brienia reformed from Principality to Kingdom due to new reforms proposed by the Prince Ivan. New flag has been made and Brienian community expanded.

Government and politics

Brienia is absolute monarchy, presenting itself as a "executive constitutional monarchy" to wider micronational community.

Title of monarch (King) is hereditary and is not able to be removed by any existing body in Brienia. By divine right of monarchs, powers of monarch are given by God, making God only authority that may take title of King from the King, which can be seen in longer title of the Monarch ("by the grace of Almighty God")

Second in power are Viziers, who are regents of the Kingdom, they are appointed by the King, and are immune to Brienian laws and can only be removed if King removes them from their titles or if they leave.

Legislative power in Brienia is called "Royal Senate", which passes laws that are proposed by Senators or the King, but have to be approved by the King. Senate has unlimited number of seats, meaning that monarch can add as many people he wants to, but they have to be nobles, making Brienia aristocratic.

Brienia claims to be succesor to Croatian Kingdom.
