The Republic of Saalen, also known as simply Saalen, is a sovereign state located in Central Europe, bordering Germany and the Czech Republic. The state is created on the basis that territority alongside Saale (river in Germany) was part of Bohemian kingdom/Czech kingdom and many Czecho-germans lived here connecting Czech and German nation proving that it is not solely German land, so the concept it self is focused on improving equality between Germans and Czechs. Another reason for establishing Saalen is believe that parent states Germany and Czech Republic are heading toward political chaos through holes in legislation system.
