  1. The Sovietian State forbids the use of currency in national territory, nonetheless the Brazilian Real is in circulation and common use

Sovietia, officialy the Soviet Empire (Portuguese: Império Soviético; Cyrillic: Империо Сoвиeтицo) is a virtualist micronation which claims as territory all factories of the former Eastern Bloc countries plus those in Brazil. With no clear claimed area, the official state's definition is that os 0.1 square kilomoters (0.039 square miles) and with an unknown size of population, kept as secret by the state, the country holds no administrative division but counts on several virtual cities made of the conglomerate of workers of several geographical cities in determined areas. The country's capital and largest city is Trotskygrad, named after Leon Trotsky. It have the English and the Portuguese as it's co-official languages, while the Russian and German languages are constitutionally considered cultural languages. Added to this, the Russian cyrillic alphabet is officialy utilized, normally applied to the Portuguese language.

Sovietian claimed territory is or was part the main workplace of the oppressed workers of poor countries during the second industrial revolution during the late nineteenth century, and became the political stage of the communist revolution which took place in several countries during the first half of the twentieth century. Following the downfall of most communist regimes in late twentieth century, these factories ceased to be any politically relevant spaces inside these countries' newly-established capitalist regimes. In 2016 King Arthur I of Roschfallen firstly envisioned a nation-state on which the factories' workers would be once again important political players, mixing it with a modern and functional structure of government. In mid 2020, taking advantage of the Lusophone Cold War, supported by partners of the Conference of Santiago and the Nuremberg Commune, the Sovietic Empire came into existence through a proclamation and the creation of it's virtual ambients. The constitution was marked to be officialy innaugurated in 20 days following the country's foundation watching over a series of pre-established designations, the Fundamental Laws, which defined the country as unitary trotskyist one-party socialist state under an absolute monarchy.

Sovietian economy's calculation is based on the added value of properties, resources and profits of it's workers, with the gross value of GVA reaching almost US$1.000.000 dollars. Following it's foundation, the amount of money invested in the country's infrastructure and overall development is expected to boost the inner market and, consequently, it's economic growth. Sovietia is a member of the Lusophone and Brazilian sectors, being a small power in both, although the country draws some credibility from it's monarch, who is also a respected Brazilian micronationalist as King of Ebenthal. Following it's establishment, the Sovietia is expected to join the Conference of Santiago, which supported it's creation, and to become a founding-member of the upcoming Intermicronational Socialist. Citizenship can be aquired by being a worker and applying for it.

Etymology

The Imperial Constitution and the Fundamental Rules defines the country's official name as Soviet Empire on both charter's first articles.

Art. 1. The Soviet Empire is a socialist state of the whole people, expressing the will and interests of the workers, peasants, and intelligentsia, the working people of all the nations and nationalities of the country.

— Sovietian Constitution

The country's proper name is a corruption of the Soviet word, inspired by the Soviet Union as the country mostly is, where Sovietia means Land of the Soviets. The word Soviet comes from the Russian for "Council" and were political organizations and governmental bodies of the late Russian Empire, primarily associated with the Russian Revolution, which gave the name to the latter states of the Soviet Russia and the Soviet Union.

History

Background

In the nineteenth century factory workers and peasants worked under harsh conditions, long periods and for extremelly low wages. Workers or their representans in politics and media were constantly silenced in all possible ways by the governments in many countries, more notoriously, by the Imperial Russian Government. The Bloody Sunday, when unarmed demonstrators led by Father Georgy Gapon, were fired upon by soldiers of the Imperial Guard as they marched towards the Winter Palace to present a petition to Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, was the trigger to the real fight for the workers' rights and so to the 1905 Russian Revolution which turned the factories and peasants workplaces into political fields. Amidst the chaos, the Saint Petersburg Soviet was created with between 400 and 500 elected memberd by around 200.000 industrial workers. In late 1905, the exiled revolutionary Leon Trotsky returned from Siberia and assumed the soviet's control, calling off the general strikes fearing this would give the government an excuse for greater oppression and to better architect a plan. From then on the workers politized and the numbers of Soviets in Imperial Russia frew extensively.

With the outbreak of the 1917 Russian Revolution, more specifically following the October Revolution, the soviets led by Bolshevik Party came to power speaking for the workers. Led by Lenin and Trotsky, the bolsheviks started the needed changes in order to give the lower classes the power they lust. The Soviet Union was established as a communist ideocracy. However the new regime faced serious problems as Treaty of Brest-Litovsk which ceded much of European Russian land to the formation of new countries, the Red Army's brutality and the negative impact of this on the working classes to the ongoing Russian Civil War. Debates on several concerns hardened as individuals fought for the control of the country and party, with Lenin supporting Trotsky as his successor while Stalin acting in the shadows to overthrown the power and ultimatelly succeeding in it. As Stalin wasn't commited to the Communist ideal as much as to himself, the revolution fatally failed but succeeded in inspire the establishment of several communist regimes.

Idealization

The first projects on the development of Sovietia were given in 2016 by Arthur Brum, a Brazilian micronationalist with two years of experience by then, being King of Roschfallen. A liberal monarchist, Arthur was curious to see how a monarchy could work with communism, being virtually opposed to each other. The county envisioned would mix features of the Soviet Union and the Russian Empire, but also from East Germany and Brazil. It was decided that the country should be an Empire and should make all possible references to the workers, of whom the monarch would draw it's power and legitimacy. The national symbols should mix communist and monarchis symbols as well, with hammer and sickle obligatorily present. These designations, plus some others, were officialy called Fundamental Laws, this means, basic decisions after which the country's future constitution shall be based on. Politically, the monarchy would adopt the Trotskyism, regarded by Arthur as somewhat fair and "the only one communist branch that makes some sense", and also because of Arthur's admiration towards Trotky's resilience, strenght, commitment and fidelity to principles.

In order to accomplish Sovietia's establishment, Arthur took good care on dictating on Roschfallen's constitution that the sovereign could be shared by another nation, this means, the person of the monarch could be shared, but each monarchy should remain completelly independent and holds no possibility of a crown union.

Foundation

In late June 2020 the Lusophone Sector Cold War was intensified by the exchange of accusations between the United Provinces of Mauritia, backed by the Conference of Santiago, and the Modelists, backed by a few actual micronations. The head of the Modelists, whose name won't be said, claims the whole German territory as belonging to him as an autocratic monarch, and so most members of the Conference of Santiago came up with the ideia of create a joker micronation in German territory to mess with the Modelist head. On 3 July a group of several micronationalists, including Arthur Brum, now as King of Ebenthal, proclaimed the Nuremberg Commune, a virtualist micronation claiming as territory one park bench at the Stadtpark in Nuremberg. The communism was adopted to turn the micronation automatically into an opposition to the Modelist head and his monarchical influences. Taking advantage of the momentum, Arthur put his old micronational project into work, on which he was supported by the Conference and most of the Brazilian sector. In 8 July 2020 Sovietia came into existence through and open proclamation by Arthur Brum, self-proclaimed as Emperor Arthur I, and the creation of the micronation's virtual spaces. Upon founding Sovietia, Arthur sought the help of Prince Hugo IV of Negromonte, one of his subjects in Ebenthal, who agreed to participate on the country's development by, among other things, drawning a constitution based on the Fundamental Laws. The micronation is also expected to join the Conference of Santiago and, along with Nuremberg, found the Intermicronational Socialist.

Geography

Claimed area

Sovietia's claimed lands consists of all factories in the countries that formely composed the Eastern Bloc during the Cold War - this means all countries of former Soviet Union, plus Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, Czechia, Slovakia and Albania - plus the factories in Brazil, from where the micronation's core members are originated.

The government don't hold any intention to administrate it's claimed territories and states that the claim is symbolic to illustrate that the factories, the means of production belongs to the workers, and in case, is claimed by their Emperor in their name. In order to define the country's proper territory in size, as it is virtually impossible to gather the added size of all factories in several countries, the government claims the country's territory to be that of 0.1 km² (0.039 sq mi), and the country abides by the Brazilian time zone, the UTC−3, and the summet time zone UTC−2. There's no body of water in Sovietia.

Virtual area

As a virtualist micronation, Sovietia's actually administrated territory is virtual, this means, exists only in on-line spaces, and consists of government forums analogue to government buildings, informative pages analogue to journal and news agencies, and other kind of sites.
