History

The Samian States are located in central Alabama and the panhandle of Florida. In Alabama, the territory was originally home to Choctaw, Chickasaw, Cherokee, and Creek indians. It was later colonized by Britain, and Florida by Spain. The territory became part of the United States of America following the Revolutionary War and the Adams-Onis Treaty. In 2010, micronationalist Brendon Weston wanted to create an independent nation, founding the Union of Samian City States. After several months of activity, and becoming an important power in the region, interest in the nation wained, and its citizens all voted in a referendum to either preserve the Union or disband. The result was a 9 yay 7 nay vote to disband the nation. The citizens who voted to preserve agreed to petition to join the Confederation of Awesome. Their request was accepted and they joined as the fourth consituent state, lead by Brendon Weston. This represented a large territorial gain for the Confederation.

Government

The Samian States are governed as a parliamentary republic, lead by a Prime Minister, currently, Brendon Weston. This Prime Minister is the leader of the party who controls the most seats in Parliament. Parliament has three seats, with one representative from each County. The Prime Minister serves a four year term, unless voted out of office by a motion of no-confidence. To ensure government stablility, a Prime Minister cannot receive a Vote of Non-Confidence until a year after their election. The current political parties are the centre-left Liberal Party, which holds a majority in Parliament, and the Marijuana Party, lead by Jess Stroud, that forms the Official Opposition. A Provicial Court makes up the Judicial Branch. The current Provincial Justice is Somto Ozuligbo. The next Prime Minister will take power in August 2014. There is no limit for the number of times a Prime Minister can be re-elected.
