Montania is a small North American State of the Ashukov Federation. A former constituent nation of the Confederation of Saint Luke and Amager (February 2013 - April 2013), Montania became a Socialist Republic a few months before founding the Ashukov Federation on May 25, 2013. It later renounced Marxism-Leninism, and is now a direct-democratic provisional republic.
The name "Montania" is derived from the Spanish word Montaña, meaning "mountain".
The independence of the Federal Republic of Montania, Montania's first incarnation, was declared on 28 January 2013. Following a socialist coup and a brief provisional government, the People's Republic of Montania was established.
The Establishment (January 2013)
Montania was established on 29 January 2013, after the dissolution of a micronation known as Plaktukai, by Joseph Kennedy, Zachary Wallace and Kaushik Legata.
The Amagerian Era (February 2013 - April 2013)
Montania joined the Confederation of Saint Luke and Amager on 6 February 2013. Following the resignation of First Minister Jules Grant, the Labour Party of Amager, established by Joseph Kennedy and Vladimir II of Doshevika, came to power with Leon Simpson's ascension to the office of First Minister.
On 6 April 2013, following Doshevika's declaration of independence, the Confederation of Amager was dissolved by the Federal Assembly and Montania re-gained its full sovereignty.
Single-Party Rule (April 2013 - May 2013)
Following the dissolution of Amager, Joseph Kennedy established the Communist Party of Montania and lead a socialist coup against the Federal Republic. The coup was successful, and the Provisional People's Government was established, with Kennedy as its Chairman. This coup lead to the establishment of a single-party system in Montania.
Nine days later, the People's Republic of Montania was established as a single-party socialist republic, lead by the Communist Party of Montania. The 1st Constitution of the People's Republic was adopted, which stated that the Communist Party was the leading force in society.
Ashukovo (May 2013 - Present)
On 25 May 2013 Montania joined Akharnes, Dorien and Dradelia to found the Ashukov Federation. Since then, the Montanian government declined in activity, with all regional representatives setting a primary focus on Federal matters. The Second Constitution of the People's Republic was adopted on 4 September 2013 by the Constitutional Congress.
After a short time as a Federal Territory, Montania became a state again as the Principality of Montania.
