The Free Rendonese State (Filipino: Malayang Estadong Rendones), otherwise referred to as Renderfeit is a self-declared independent state typically referred to as a Micronation by external observers and some states. The State is located in Cebu City, Philippines mainly operating in Barangay Inayawan. The State occupies only 104 sq. meters as its absolute territory otherwise referred to as the District of New Maison under direct administration of the Parliament of Renderfeit. The official languages of the State is English, Filipino, and Cebuano, and is in current use till today.
The State has been established back in November 14, 2018 as the Republic of Renderfeit, equipped with a hyperpresidential political system occupying territory slightly larger than the present territories. It has been founded by the Presidential Laws of the State. Some would believe that the State is a direct predecessor of the Hosati Scouting Group which is an independent scouting organization unaffiliated with other international scouting bodies.
The name "Renderfeit" has no clear origin whatsoever, however it has been used in a small simulationist 1800 European-style politics by a state referred as Renderfeit greatly inspired with the cultures and politics of Germany and Korea.
The Free Rendonese State was founded in November 14, 2018 at Barangay Inayawan, Cebu City, first known as the Republic of Renderfeit with a hyperpresidential system of government as provided by the very first constitution of the State with the guidance of the Senate of Renderfeit. The early Republic had been the republic whom have accumulated the most citizens in the history of the State which had reached up to 30, but was deeply unorganized as all members are on or under the age of 13 at that time. However deeply unorganized, they cannot be labeled as unsuccessful in their social affairs as they had organized for a Christmas Caroling in Christmas 2018 with the majority of its members and President Rey Jr. Mancio participating the activity. They altogether accumulated more than P200 on several nights and all evenly split among the participants for their participation, none however was left for the treasury. The Republic was then renamed as the Children's Republic of Renderfeit and continued to use the new name until April 2019.
On the Children's Republic goes the performance of the first Senatorial Elections organized in coordination with the 2019 Philippine general elections while a campaign of the local Cebu City Barug PDP-Laban Party is ongoing in their neighborhood. The turnout of results are as follows:
- Rhealit Rigodon
- Rayzel Rigodon
- Shairemel Gonato
- Risha Melle Gonato
After months of being unrecognized and moving on their own devices, Renderfeit, now the People's Federal Democratic Republic of Renderfeit started to reach with other micronations via the Micronations group on Facebook. There was how Renderfeit was discovered by HSH Rameses I of the Metropolitan Electorate of Fidelis informing and reaching to the President about the existence of the Association of Micronations in the Philippine Islands. With no hesitations and being full of excitement, the President then coordinated with His Highness for Renderfeit's admission to the AMPI, and became a member of the Association since 10 June 2019 till this day. After maintaining close connections with the Association, the State then bridged measures for the establishment of relations to the members of the AMPI especially the Independent State of Kaleido and the Republic of Gerussia.
Before establishing connections with the aforementioned, the State first had relations with the Bravian Republic of Gugutanea and of the Commonwealth of Friends Society which are still allies with their successors which are the Southern Confederation of Angosvria and the State of Vishwamitra respectively. Afterwards, and with the help of Varuna Sriraya, the Monarch of the State of Vishwamitra, the State established alliances with Karnia-Ruthenia, Kingdom of Ebenthal, Pibocip, and others.
Conflict with Vishwamitra
During August to November 2020, the State of Vishwamitra had been on their reactivation process and is extremely active in their diplomacy and is trying to maintain ties with the Philippine Micronational Community. The relations however severed due to the alleged interference of the internal matters of the Ruslavian Federation and the Federated State of Gerussia over the ongoing constant transition of Ruslavia in its political system. The government of the People's Republic of Renderfeit, being caught in the middle of the issue, decided to confront the Rashtradhyaksh of Vishwamitra of what has happened, and thinking that the same is happening in Renderfeit, treated Vishwamitra the opposite however knowing the real truth that the interference of Vishwamtira was for the fostering of the micronations. Therefore, the AMPI intervened in the issue, and concluded that the State of Vishwamitra will be declared Persona non Grata and was declared as Category Zero of the Philipine Institute for Parapolitical, Micronationalist, and Alternative Political Studies (PIPMAPS).
Both states officially revoked their ties in November 2020 and eventually reestablished relations in 2021.
With the aim of adopting a system that is based on consensus and limited discretion, the State had undergone constitutional changes in 2021, adopting a unitary-parliamentary republican system from a federal-parliamentary elective semi-constitutional monarchy. The Constitution was promulgated in 27 June 2021 but wasn't codified as it advocates for an evolving constitution, relying on the legislature on the passing of its additional articles and other guidelines to appeal with the progress of the State.
Politics and government
The President of Renderfeit is the highest executive officer of the land, serving as the head of state of Renderfeit and primary diplomatic officer and architect. The President, in most of history, holds the title of being the most powerful office in a pseudo-dictatorial capacity evolving to a mostly ceremonial office. However, with the President being allowed to preside over the Batasang Pambansa, especially on the approval of the Balzian Commonwealth State Act of 2021, made lots of questions in the "ceremonial position" of the President, The Batasang Pambansa is currently making actions on the matter. The President is elected by the population of Renderfeit in a direct election through universal suffrage, assuming tenure of 2 years renewable; the longest serving President is Rey Jr. Mancio. There used to be an office for a Vice President, held last by Divinangelo Abarquez (first by Rhealit Rigodon), but was abolished at the time of the shifting to a parliamentary system.
The Prime Minister and Cabinet
The executive day-to-day duties are handled by the Prime Minister of Renderfeit, alongside with his cabinet called the Government Council, formulating policies and programs that must be in conformity with the demands of the people. It was first created at the time of the Socialist Imperial Renderfeit Republic and was abolished in the time of the People's Federal Democratic Republic of Renderfeit, then reinstated during the 2021 Constitution of Renderfeit after shifting to a parliamentary system. The Prime Minister is elected by the Batasang Pambansa from among its members, while the Cabinet is appointed by the Prime Minister, assuming tenure of 2 years renewable, and may be dismissed through a vote of no confidence.
The Batasang Pambansa is the legislature of the State since 23 February 2021, originally the bicameral Parliament of Renderfeit as created by the 2021 Constitution. It is composed of 10 members at its maximum capacity, elected through closed-list proportional representation, assuming tenure of a year since their election, renewable, or until dissolved by the President upon the request of the majority, dissolved not beyond 72 hours. The Batasang Pambansa shall create and approve laws, formulate the annual budget, elect the Prime Minister from among its members, or any other power vested upon them by law. Pursuant to Presidential Proclamation no. 2, superseded by Presidential Proclamation no. 3, the Batasang Pambansa is currently suspended.
There had been no formal judicial authority in the Free Rendonese State, but the Constitution had created a Supreme Court as a court of last resort which is in charge of judicial review and arbitration.
