The Hilbertian Republic, also known as Hilbertia, is a landlocked self-declared country in Central Europe surrounded by Slovakia, located near the village of Plavecký Peter, and is part of a larger group of lands called the Hilbertian Realm. It was founded by Alex Ashford on November 23, 2019. Although on the website NationStates, Hilbertia was founded on November 13, 2019. The capital city of Hilbertia is Malaja, located in the Malaja region. The country has a population of 26 people and is currently not recognized by any other country, but is a member state of the Grand Unified Micronational. Hilbertia's official languages are Hilbertian Sinjal, Slovak, and English.

Hilbertia's mostly flat territory spans a total area of 2408 m² (827.3 km² including other territories of the Hilbertian Realm) and is divided into 6 regions, each with its own flag. The entire nation and the Hilbertian Realm are usually managed and governed from the territory of Nauriania, which serves as the capital city of the Hilbertian Realm and the seat of the Hilbertian government.

There are two official state religion in the country - Pantheism and Taoism.

The national food is sheep cheese potatoes; the national drink is black tea, while the national animal is a guinea pig. Hilbertia's official anthem is an edited version of the song "Life of Birds" by Terry Devine-King.

The currency of Hilbertia is both the Euro and the Hilbertian Nex. The value of 1 Nex is tied to the value of 1mg (milligram) of gold: 1 NEX = 0.001 AUG. It does not yet exist, but the planned denominations will most likely be 1, 5, 10, 20, 50 as coins and 100, 200, 500, 1000, 2000, 5000 as banknotes.

Hilbertia sees itself as a mostly neutral nation, trying not to pick sides in major global political crises. Instead, Hilbertia advocates for diplomatic and peaceful resolutions to conflicts on all sides. The country is not part of any major power block and prefers to stay in a non-aligned state.

Emblems

Flag

The blue triangle symbolizes the sky, while the green triangle signifies the soil, ground, and plant life. The central white stripe represents the only major river stream in the country - Riava. The yellow circle at the center symbolizes the sun, and the flower within it symbolizes all the flowers of Hilbertia - symbols of the nation. Positioned in the top right corner, the hawk serves as a representation of the diverse bird species, including hawks themselves, as it is a common sight to observe them circling above. Lastly, the 5 large and 2 small stars represent the 5 primary regions and 2 subregions of the country.

Coat of arms

The central white flower serves as the representative emblem for all the flowers of Hilbertia. The constellation of 5 large and 2 small stars mirrors the 5 primary regions and 2 subregions of Hilbertia. The blue background, in turn, serves as a symbolic representation of the sky, peace, and liberty.

History

The land of Hilbertia was acquired in the year 2004, and subsequently, in 2010, construction started on a house that would become the future capital, Malaja. The Hilbertian Chronicle is a document recording significant events in chronological order, but is not available to the public

Geography and nature

Orto Tokoy Peak - Hilbertian Realm's highest point

The Hilbertian Republic is located near a small village of Plavecký Peter in Slovakia. Altogether the nation consists of 5 main regions and 3 subregions. They are represented as stars on the national flag and the coat of arms. The total area of all regions is 2408 m².

In Hilbertia, there are 3 buildings, The largest of them is Malaja, the capital, and also the highest building in the country. The second one is Unimobunka, which is used to store materials and tools, among other things. The third one is Kadibudka, which had been used as a toilet before Malaja was built. Today it's just a decoration.

Riava and Little Riava are the only 2 rivers in Hilbertia. Riava forms a border between the Upper Plains Region and Central & Swamp regions and flows through 4 regions in total. There are 3 artificial lakes on Riava with 2 small pipe waterfalls between the 2 Lower Riava lakes. In the Upper Plains Rregion, the Angel lake is located, measuring 2,9 meters in diameter and has a maximum depth of 0,35 meters. The river then flows outside of the country but emerges again the Lower plains region, where the lowest point of Hilbertia can be found (approximately 218 meters above sea level). Riava then flows into one of the three wells and continues underground.

The highest point of the Hilbertian Republic itself is Graphite hill - ~226 meters above sea level. However, the highest point of the entire Hilbertian Realm is Orto Tokoy Peak - 3176 meters a.s.l. - located in the Orto Tokoy territory surrounded by Kyrgyzstan. So far the mountain remains unclimbed, but it has been photographed during a 2023 Hilbertian expedition to the Orto Tokoy territory. A Hilbertian expedition to climb the peak is planned sometime in the next 3-5 years.

There are several areas bordering Hilbertia which may become part of the country in the future. Hilbertian government plans to buy these surrounding areas and expand the country. One area beyond the current border of Hilbertia had been a disputed territory called the Swamp region, but on April 12th 2021, the Hilbertian government had decided to drop its claims to this area to prevent conflicts. However, after the owner was later contacted, an agreement was reached and the land was bought on July 23rd 2021, and it became fully integrated and a part of Hilbertia on August 23rd 2021.

External territories

Hilbertia is part of a larger group of lands called the Hilbertian Realm. Other than Hilbertia, It consists of 4 self-governing states, 6 non-self-governing territories, and 1 special neutral federal territory. These are not part of the Hilbertian Republic itself. The Hilbertian government has no power over the self-governing states, but all permanent residents of these places are also Hilbertian citizens. All non-self-governing territories are directly under the control of the Hilbertian government, with the exception of Vinland, which is under the control of Bespon. The non-self-governing territory of Nauriania is the seat of the Hilbertian government and the capital of the Hilbertian Realm. All self-governing states were incorporated into the Hilbertian Realm by signing a treaty with the Hilbertian government, apart from Orto Tokoy, which was declared unilaterally, and all non-self-governing territories were unilaterally claimed by the Hilbertian government, as there are no permanent inhabitants.

A new self-governing state called Eissentam will soon be declared in The Hague in the Netherlands and a planned period called the Dutch Expansion will begin. During this period, Hilbertian influence will spread throughout Benelux and the Netherlands will become the new Hilbertian homeland. The 3 non-self-governing territories located in the Mediterranean sea (Sikavač Islands, Pente Vrachi and Blata tal-Ghallis) are collectively known as the Hilbertian Mediterranean.

The Central Universal Republic, which used to be a self-governing state, had split off from Nauriania on December 7, 2021, but later rejoined Nauriania. The former territories Asmara and Astaria rejoined Slovakia in 2022.

Most Hilbertian states and territories use the Euro as currency, while Ethos uses the Pound Sterling, Orto Tokoy uses the Kyrgyz Som, Firingholmen uses the Norwegian Krone, and Dustin Island uses the Antarctic Dollar. The de jure currency of the entire Hilbertian Realm is the Hilbertian Nex.

In order to visit these states territories, visitors have to fill in a visa application form or contact the Hilbertian consulate in Slovakia. The only state currently open for visitors is Orto Tokoy.

In such cases, one government member, chosen annually by all government members, assumes the role of Prime Minister. This individual then holds most powers and duties of the President until a new President is elected. The first Hilbertian Constitution was signed on December 25th 2023, and came into effect on January 1st 2024.

Hilbertia also used to produce various chemicals and pure materials in small amounts, mainly gunpowder, fine coal powder, and sugar-based solid rocket fuel, which was used to power Hilbertian rockets in the past.

Department of Rocket Technology

Solid-fuel rocket boosters were being developed between 2021 and 2022. The rocket launchpad was located in the Central Region. These rockets were made out of PVC pipes and the rocket fuel was made out of a sugar-based substance produced in Hilbertia.

Lantea rocket: Lantea rocket was a rocket which used the L-1 solid-fuel booster engine. It was made out of a PVC pipe filled with R-1 rocket fuel.
