Savoy (French: Savoie), officially the Kingdom of Savoy (Royaume de Savoie), was a micronation in Europe, bordered by France to the west and the south, by Italy to the east and Switzerland to the north. It's Capital was Chambéry. It was the successor of the County of Savoy, which became the Duchy of Savoy, Kingdom of Sardinia and then, Kingdom of Italy. It is currently inactive. The microwiki contains the only known mentions of this micronation.

The Kingdom of Savoy was formed on December 12, 2009 by the self-proclaimed king, Louis I to restore the once powerfull Duchy of Savoy, which gave their territories to France, while unifying Italy.

Politics

Government

Kingdom of Savoy was a constitutional monarchy, with the old European tradition. The king directed the executive branch of government, as would do a president in a republic, but had some particularities in the distribution of powers. The Sovayards Citizens elected both Prime Ministers and Senate representatives. The Legislative branch of government was made from Senate where senators voted laws and propose them. Alongside with the Prime Minister, the Senate controlled the ministers, chosen by the King.


Subdivisions

Savoy was divided in 7 counties, which had a certain level of autonomy. They all had their own Senate which voted local laws but is controlled by the national Senate. The leader of a County was the Count. Counts formed the house of Counts in the national government.
