The Snagovian Federal Republic, also known as the Snagovian FR, or just Snagov,[a] is a self-declared independent state with little or no international recognition,[b] and is commonly referred to as micronation by external observers. The Snagovian Federal Republic is located in Eastern Europe, sits on the Wallachian Plain, and is surrounded by Romania from all sides. The total land area of the nation, including all the oblasts is approximately 29.23 square kilometres (11.28 square miles). The population of the nation stands at 54 people, with the most recent census being held in February, in the year 2021. The capital of the nation is Dăchileni, being located in South Siliștea, which has a population of four. The largest city, however, is Ștefănești, which is also located in the South Siliștea Oblast, and has a population of eight. The nation consists of multiple people groups, from all over the world.

The nation was founded and formally established on 18 June 2020, by Gheorghe Ștefan Marius and Chilău David Robert, who assumed the offices of the President and Vice President respectively. The nation is a federal presidential republic under a multi-party democracy, with the Snagovian Parliament being the unicameral legislature. The de jure currency is the Snagovian Crown (SNA ♆), however, the Romanian leu is more commonly used. The three official languages of the nation are Romanian, Snagovian language and English, with Romanian being spoken by 72.22% of the population. The biggest people group are the Romanians, also standing at 72.22% of the entire population.

The nation is formed out of 11 oblasts, with each being ruled by a governor, from a certain party, which is chosen by the citizens of said oblast once a year. All the oblast governors have all of the 11 seats in the Snagovian Parliament, each oblast has one seat. The country was founded as the Federated States of Snagov, the name was changed to the Snagovian Federal Republic on 3 October 2020.

Etymology

The nation was initially named the Federated States of Snagov at the time of its establishment on 18 June 2020, however, it was renamed to its current form of the Snagovian Federal Republic on 3 October 2020[4].

Snagov comes from the lake that most of the oblasts are close to, The Tâncăbești Oblast, Izvorani Oblast, and the South Siliștea Oblast even having a coast on said lake. It may also come from the Snagov commune in Romania. The "Federal Republic" part comes from the fact that the country is, indeed, a Federal Republic. Gheorghe Ștefan Marius and Chilău David Robert were born and currently live in Snagov, Romania, and so they deemed that it would be appropriate and fair to use a local name for their nation.

"Snagov" is probably of Bulgarian origin, from the word sneg (meaning "snow"). The government of the Snagovian Federal Republic promotes the name's meaning as "snow people".

History

Foundation

The first Snagovian nation was the Principality of Snagov, which is considered to be the predecessor-state of the current state. It existed for four months, between 2 December 2015 and 25 March 2016 and was dissolved due to internal conflict between the two rulers.

Four years later, on 18 June 2020, the former co-princes of the Principality of Snagov, Gheorghe Ștefan Marius and Chilău David Robert decided to establish a new micronation, based on the idea of Snagovian unity, and as a means to oppose the current Romanian government, which caused many problems, such as declaring the Snagov region, with its forests and waters, as a "protected area", and not doing a thing to protect it.[5] Even to this day, illegal wood cutting and the littering of Lake Snagov and its surroundings have not yet stopped, even after many complaints from the people in the Snagov, Gruiu, and Ciolpani communes.[6]

Ever since the country's foundation on 18 June 2020, Gheorghe Ștefan Marius has been acting as the President, along with Chilău David Robert being the Vice President.

Initial land claims

From 18 June to 7 September, the land claims of the nation were unrealistic, making the country de facto simulationist. Its population used to stand at 16553 people, in an area of 140.2 km2. These absurd claims violated the Wrythe Convention, which the country signed on 3 November.[7]

The ten states that made up the country during this period were:

WTANCABESTIOLDFLAG.jpg West Tâncăbești West Tâncăbești 454 9.10 km2 (3.5 sq mi)


The only states that survived the transition from state to oblast were Kornelia and Aqantica. The flags of the states were very low quality, but the inspiration they gave to the current flags can still be seen, such as the colours of the old Aqantican flag still being used on the current one. Tâncăbești was divided into two states, and Gruiu was united into one, single state. Those days, the country didn't have an official anthem, motto, state and city flags, no parliament, and no ministry. Things changed on the 7th of September, however, and a lot of changes were made.

Transition period

The transition period lasted between 7 September and 3 October 2020. On 7 September, the states were dissolved and the new oblasts were formed. On 3 October, the transition period culminated with the nation being renamed as the Snagovian Federal Republic from its existing name of Federated States of Snagov.

During the transition period, the nation temporarily suspended all kinds of diplomatic relations with other nations, only excluding the relations with the State of Vishwamitra. On 4 November, diplomatic relations were deemed available, after the treaty signed with the former Kingdom of Luana (the predecessor to the current Romanian Royal Provisional Administration). At the end of this period, the political parties of the nation started to take shape, along with the country's parliament and its first ministry.

Current period

The current period in the history of Snagov, also referred to as the "new era" is the period of time succeeding the transition period which lasted between 7 September and 3 October 2020. The new era began on 4 October 2020 with the implementation of newer schemes and ideas for the welfare and development of the nation. The biggest development in the nation since the end of the transition period, was on 2 December 2020, with Dhrubajyoti Roy being appointed as the first Senior Minister of the nation, a position exclusively established by the President in order to assist him in the union council of ministers. On the next day, the first full-time union council of ministers was formed under President Gheorghe Ștefan Marius being the head of the council of ministers in his capacity as the executive head of state. In the First Gheorghe Ștefan Ministry, the Senior Minister was appointed as the deputy head of government and the senior-most of all members after the President who assists the President regarding all cabinet-related matters.

The first legislative election in the nation took place on 6 December with the Snagovian Democratic Alliance, a post-poll coalition formed between the Snagovian National Congress and the Nationalist Democratic Party (Snagovian Federal Republic) winning a combined 53.3% of the total votes and having six of the total seats in the Parliament. The Nationalist Democratic Party was the single largest party in terms of vote percentage winning 33.3% of the total votes and winning three seats, followed by the Snagovian National Congress winning 20% of the total votes and three seats in the parliament. The other two parties, the Snagovian People's Party won 26.7% of the total votes and the Green Party winning 20% of the votes. The two opposition parties won two each seats in the parliament.

On 27 December, the New Moldova Oblast was formed and is the first to be located in the historical region of Moldavia. On 2 April 2021, its name was changed to the Novivrana Oblast.[8]

All matters related to diplomacy are administered by the Office of the President and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, currently headed by the Senior Minister, Dhrubajyoti Roy. Snagov distinguishes two types of diplomatic relations, formal, which are obtained via treaty, and informal, specified by documents of common micronational organizations.

It is a signatory of the Wrythe and Edgbaston Conventions, and strictly adheres to its terms and conditions while maintaining diplomatic relations.

Snagov is a full member-nation of the Grand Unified Micronational[11][12] since 11 March 2021.

Geography

Photo of Lake Snagov taken at Dăchileni in 2020.

The territory of the Snagovian Federal Republic is entirely located in Romania. Ten out of the eleven oblasts are located in the historical region of Muntenia, with only the Novivrana Oblast being located outside of it, in the historical region of Moldova. Seeing as the country is situated in the proximity of Lake Snagov, it enjoys a wide range of flora and fauna. Most lands lie in plains, with wide variety of trees, plants and shrubs. The Snagovian Federal Republic spans over the time zone of UTC+2, which is also known as Eastern European Time. In the summer months, the country, just like Romania, uses the time zone of UTC+3, which is also known as Eastern European Summer Time. Many rivers run through the country, such as the Prahova, the Ialomița, and the Snagov river.

A river which not many people know of is the Poienari river, it is very small, and runs through the Aqantica Oblast.
