The Auxarcs, officially known as the Republic of the Auxarcs, or its abbreviation ROTA, is a micronation founded from Boone County, Arkansas, by Nathan Smith. This micronation is not recognised by any foreign power, both micronational or otherwise, and continues to proclaim its sovereignty to this day. It has 13 states, and 11 territories, and is the founding member of the Micronations of the Ozarks.

History

On February 3rd. 2024, the Republic of the Auxarcs was founded by former president of the Republic of Alomorie, and the Grand Republic of Valoria, Nathan Smith. As well as him, there were four more people that aided in the creation of the Republic of the Auxarcs, those being Joseph Majano, Violet Abraham, Dylan Franco and Isaac Majano. After the signing of the Declaration of Independence, theses five people became The Auxarcs' founders. Just like the creation of the ROA, the Republic of the Auxarcs' creation was inspired by the micronations that have inspired many others, those being the Republic of Molossia, the Principality of Sealand, the Principality of Hutt River, The Kingdom of Ruritania, and many others. The name Auxarcs comes from the French abbreviation "aux Arcs" which is a shortened form of "aux Arcansas", meaning "of/at/to the Arkansas (Quapaw)" and represents the geography of the land that the Auxarcs governs, which is the Ozarks, specifically Northern Arkansas. The country was created as a "Part 2" of the Republic of Alomorie, and used Valoria and Alomorie's former claims of Boone County, Arkansas and some of its territories as a starting point of sovereignty. But in order to do this, Nathan Smith had to find a loophole in the dissolution documents for the Republic of Alomorie and the Grand Republic of Valoria. That loophole was the fact that in the secession documents, both of their claims of Boone County, Arkansas were not listed, as well as some of their claimed territories. From that, the possibility of a new nation was then acted upon.

Declaration of Independence

The Declaration of Independence of the Republic of the Auxarcs. Signed by Nathan Smith, Jason Smith, Joseph Majano, and Violet Abraham.

The Declaration of Independence was signed and ratified on February 3rd, 2024. Written by Nathan Smith, it is the first document of The Auxarcs, and is the first piece of legislation for the republic. Using U.S Declaration of Independence as inspiration, The Auxarcs' Declaration of Independence (DOI) was written with the values of the people of The Auxarcs in mind. Declaring its independence and sovereignty from the United States, and to set the foundations of its values and cultures, this document marks the beginning of the Republic of the Auxarcs. Below is an excerpt from the Declaration of Independence of the Republic of the Auxarcs:

We, the people of the Republic of the Auxarcs,

In the timeless pursuit of liberty and self-determination, we, the diverse and resolute people of the Republic of the Auxarcs, stand united in the solemn act of declaring our independence from all forms of external domination and oppression. With hearts fortified by the flames of justice and minds illuminated by the virtues of freedom, we hereby solemnly proclaim the establishment of our sovereign nation, endowed with the sacred rights and responsibilities inherent to all sovereign states.

Born from the crucible of history and forged in the fires of struggle, our nation emerges as a testament to the indomitable spirit of human endeavor. With unwavering resolve, we embrace the principles of democracy, equality, and solidarity as the cornerstones of our fledgling republic, affirming the inalienable rights of every individual to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

The Constitution of the Republic of the Auxarcs was created and signed on February 5th. 2024. It was signed by Nathan Smith, Jason Smith, Joseph Majano, Isaac Majano, Violet Abraham, Julian Selby, and Sarah Norman. For symbolic nature, Jason Smith was asked to sign the Constitution, given the fact that he was a major key factor in the creation of the Republic of Alomorie. As of now, Jason Smith assures that, other than this signing, he will not be a part of the Republic of the Auxarcs. It was written by Nathan Smith, using the U.S Constitution as inspiration.

Government

National Assembly/Capital Building - Harrison, LR

The Republic of Auxarcs has a robust and dynamic governmental system that is designed to uphold democratic principles, ensure the well-being of its citizens, and facilitate efficient governance. As a beacon of stability and progress in the region, the government of the Auxarcs is structured to provide representation, accountability, and responsiveness to its people.

Executive Branch

At the helm of the executive branch is the President of Auxarcs, who serves as both the head of state and government. Elected through a democratic process, the President is entrusted with the responsibility of implementing policies, overseeing the administration, and representing the nation on the global stage. Assisting the President is the Vice President, as well as various ministries and departments, each headed by a minister appointed by the President to manage specific sectors such as finance, defense, health, education, and infrastructure.

Legislative Branch

The legislative authority in the Auxarcs resides in the Auxarcs National Assembly, a unicameral body composed of the Senate and Representatives, which are from across the nation. The members of the National Assembly, known as deputies, are elected through a proportional representation system, ensuring fair representation of diverse viewpoints and interests. The primary function of the National Assembly is to enact laws, scrutinize government actions, and allocate resources through the budgetary process. Additionally, it serves as a forum for debate and deliberation on matters of national importance.

Judicial Branch

The judiciary in the Auxarcs operates independently to uphold the rule of law and administer justice impartially. The Supreme Court of the Auxarcs is the highest judicial authority in the country, responsible for interpreting the constitution, resolving disputes, and ensuring adherence to legal principles. Beneath the Supreme Court are lower courts, including appellate courts and district courts, which handle a range of civil, criminal, and administrative cases. Judges are appointed based on their qualifications and expertise, with a commitment to fairness and impartiality.

State Governments

The Republic of the Auxarcs is divided into 12 states, each governed by state authorities responsible for managing public services, infrastructure, and development projects at the grassroots level. These state governments operate under the framework established by the central government but possess a degree of autonomy to address the specific needs and priorities of their respective communities. Through elected Governors and state Senators, state governments play a crucial role in fostering civic engagement, promoting state initiatives, and ensuring responsive governance.

Democratic Principles and Civil Liberties

Central to the government of the Auxarcs are the principles of democracy, human rights, and civil liberties. The constitution guarantees fundamental freedoms such as freedom of speech, assembly, and religion, while also safeguarding the rights of minorities and marginalized groups. Elections are held regularly and conducted in a free and fair manner, allowing citizens to participate in the democratic process and hold their representatives accountable. Moreover, an active civil society, independent media, and robust institutions contribute to a vibrant democracy and pluralistic society in the Auxarcs.

Ridgedale and Allegheny Statehood

The admission of Ridgedale and Allegheny to the Republic of the Auxarcs in June 2024 marked a significant territorial expansion for the Republic of the Auxarcs. Ridgedale, previously a town in Missouri, and Allegheny, comprising the northern panhandle of West Virginia, sought statehood to better align with the cultural and political framework of the Auxarcs. Both regions presented petitions demonstrating broad local support, leading to a favorable vote by the Senate of the Auxarcs. Ridgedale's admission was approved on June 10, with a 42-8 vote, while Allegheny's followed on June 14, passing by 39-11. These additions brought new legislative representation and resources to the Republic, reflecting its commitment to inclusive governance and regional identity. The successful integration of Ridgedale and Allegheny into the Republic of the Auxarcs involved a series of constitutional amendments and legislative measures. These included allocating two senators and proportional representation in the lower house for each new state, as well as the establishment of state governments consistent with the Republic's principles. The transition process also entailed resource allocation to support infrastructure, public services, and governance in the new states. These additions not only enhance the Republic's demographic and geographical diversity, but also strengthened its political cohesion and economic capabilities, setting a precedent for future expansions.

Flag

Alternate flag of the ROTA

The flag of the Republic of the Auxarcs was created by Nathan Smith. The flag consists of three fields, one of which is blue, with a white 12-pointed star located within. The 12-pointed star represents the first 12 states of the Republic of the Auxarcs. As well as this, there is a green bar located on the very left of the flag, which represents the nature of the area, the Ozarks. The white stripe in-between both fields represents the community that the Ozarks houses, which among many things, is one of the nicest communities around the whole area. There is also an alternative flag, which consists of the seal, placed on top of the 12-pointed star. This flag is only used for International purposes.

States

The Republic of the Auxarcs currently has 13 states. All of these states were previously claimed by the Republic of Alomorie, as territories consisting of all of Boone County, Arkansas. During the time that it was claimed by the ROA, Boone County had only been split up into its individual townships, and not states. Now, The Republic of the Auxarcs has claimed that former land, and has formally turned those townships into partial-status states.
