Slavtria is a member of the Congress of Ohio Micronations.

Slavtria (US: /slɑːvtriʌ/), officially the Republic of Slavtria,[c] is a micronation located on the North American continent, specifically in Central Ohio. It was founded on 27 February 2021 by President Catiko, and former Prime Minister Brtalo. It is a federal republic, with its most significant subdivisions being the State of Kietgrad, Studia City, and Easton Territory.

The Slavtrian government defines the country as a "federal presidential republic" where the president is the head of state and government and the prime minister is the deputy head of government. The next person in line of power is de facto the Speaker of Parliament. The government is split into three branches, the executive branch, the legislature, and the judiciary. Slavtria is governed under the Constitution.

The country has a representative form of democracy, with citizens electing members of parliament. The government passed a bill in 2024 stating that the president and prime minister cannot have seats in Parliament. Slavtria has sometimes been called an authoritarian country as the President serves for life, but the government denies this.

Etymology

The name "Slavtria" is a combination of the root "Slav," chosen due to many Slavtrian citizens being part Slavic, and the suffix "-tria," a general connotation for countries in Modern English.[d]

From Slavtria's establishment to 12 March, when it was invaded by the Domitian Union, a loophole occurred in the constitution that made 2 names official for Slavtria, being the Republic of Slavtria, the current official name, and the Federal Republic of Slavtria. The loophole was noticed and removed after the independence of Slavtria from the Domitian Union on 3 April.

History

Slavtria was founded on 27 February 2021 by President Catiko. Former Prime Minister Brtalo joined in as the co-founder later that day. Slavtria was independent until 12 March, when it was invaded by the military of the Domitian Union. Slavtria was defeated and incorporated into the Domitian Union as a state. On 3 April, Koatia, another micronation in the union, started a war with the help of all the other states in the union, including Slavtria. Domitia was defeated on 3 April 2021 at 3:29 AM, and Slavtria gained independence.

Legislature changes

On 18 July 2021, President Catiko passed an act where the legislature of Slavtria was changed from a unicameral Congress to a bicameral Parliament. The upper house was called the Council of Parliament, while the lower house was called the House of the Republic. On 27 October 2022, Parliament passed a bill changing itself from bicameral to unicameral.

Slavtrian-Communist War

The Slavtrian-Communist War started when the Group of Communist Slavtrians declared war on Slavtria, with the goal of taking over Slavtria and instating a communist dictatorship. This dictatorship would be fully communist and be anti-capatalist, also re-instating the death penalty and making government torture legal. The group was led by an unknown male, who to this day is unable to be identified, and possibly a female member.

The battle ended after 2 days, after John Doe fled, marking his group's dissolution. Due to cameras being limited in the area where the leader lived, he is not able to be identified.

Brtalo controversy

The Brtalo controversy started on 31 March 2022 after Brtalo, the Prime Minister at the time, was removed from office. This was after Brtalo allegedly assaulted Catiko during school. The controversy continued until July 2023, when Catiko and Brtalo apologized to each other.

Reorganization

Parliamentary Bill 22-H2-5, also known as the Reorganization Act, was a bill in Parliament that reorganized the Republic of Slavtria's states and territories. It is also the fastest bill to be set into effect by Slavtrian Parliament, with a time of approximately 15 minutes. It was passed on 17 September 2022 at 1:20 PM Slavtrian Daylight Time, or 12:50 PM Eastern Daylight Time.

Inactivity

Slavtria and its government was partially inactive starting in November 2022 and ending in January 2023. This was due to school being overwhelming for government officials, and the president was partaking in their hobbies. On 25 December 2022, an economic boom started in Slavtria where the GDP went up to Є6900, but, the GDP went back to normal in April 2023. Slavtria went inactive once again starting in mid-2023, and there was barely any activity over many months, until around Christmas week of 2023.

Late 2023-Early 2024 activity

As of January 2024, Slavtria has become active. The GDP has increased to approximately Є3250, and multiple treaties of mutual recognition have been signed. Also, the second amendment was passed, adding a cannabis section to the Constitution. The amendment also changed the Constitution to abide by Parliamentary Bill 24-H1-1, as well as change all national election dates to February 27.
