The Luanian Principality, (Romanian: Principatul Luanei), also known as simply Luana,was a romanian landlocked self-declared independent state with little to no international recognition. Luana was located in Southeast Europe and the nation was surrounded by Romania entirely. Luana was an Absolute Monarchy (even though it has a Constitution) led and founded by Alessandro I and the approximate controlled land was of 1 440 square meters. Luana had one region and the capital city was Hațenicu. The population of Luana was mostly composed of romanians from the city of Buzau but people from around the world were invited to become Luana's citizens. The official currency of the country was the RON.
The nation has a long history but as most recently it's also known as Abristan, the Former LRA or the Former Kingdom of Luana.
On the micronational stage, Luana had diplomatic relations with multiple countries and was continously looking to improve their diplomacy.
The Luanians are:
A) Romanians with luanian descent (most times presumed, there was no actual way of confirming exactly)
B) People from around the world who want to have luanian descent (as soon as they would get their citizenship they would become of luanian descent)
Luana's history starts in the mountains of buzau in the prehistoric times, where our luanian ancestors found home, near the nowadays city of Bozioru. Dating from that period are also some beautiful collections of weird shaped rocks, who some may say look like fallen small UFO's, near the prehistoric settlement.
The name of Luana has two legends, one is that the god those prehistoric luanians worshipped was named Luana, and the other one is that Luana was a very smart king of our ancient ancestors, who would wash the wounded with the water from a nearby water source who was known to do miracles. We prefer the second legend.
By the end of the Medieval Era our luanian ancestors already long left the initial settlement and established small towns very nearby, only some people still cared about the luanian past, everyone had already forgotten by the end of the Medieval Era
Many people of luanian descent died in both World Wars and we honor them, even though most of them didn't know they were luanian(even though we are romanians, we still believe in the luanian descent), and some of them weren't even living near the original settlement anymore.
During the romanian communist regime, the old luanians who still cared about our traditions were sent to prison, where they would be tortured and killed for being monarchists. The luanians were known for being monarchists because during the monarchy, you would be able to practice your luanian regional traditions freely, and you could teach the kids about their descent without anyone interfering, but during communism our traditions were opressed, even though they were very similar to the casual romanian ones.
Fast forward to recent years, everyone forgot about Luana and our traditions, only some old people are left that have told their stories. Tudor Alessandro and some of his friends or colleagues found out about the legends and also found out that some of them might originate from near Bozioru, thus confirming their luanian descent. Alessandro had confirmed his luanian descent first and wanted to do something to revive the luanian traditions and established a micronation, through that micronation bringing back the ancient Kingdom of Luana. He was crowned King and the micronation lived on for almost 2 years.
The members of the micronation and the King informed themselves and found out that there still is a descendant of the romanian kings and as a sign of gratitude for when they could express their traditions freely, they thought of offering the Queen, Margareta the throne of Luana until She can lead Romania. So they did, the Kingdom of Luana dissolved and the Luanian Royal Administration was formed, where the former King would be the Head of the Administration, second in command after the Queen.
Luana, at last...
Very recently the Kingdom of Luana was brought back because we need to put the luanian people above all other goals, though our respect for the Romanian Monarchy is still imense.
