The State of Faltree, often informally known as Faltree is an independent sovereign state, commonly referred to as a micronation by outside observers. Faltree is primarily located in Rhode Island, but also holds territory in Kentucky, Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts, and Alberta. It was established on 9 March 2020, being the successor to a previous state. Faltree is unrecognized by all United Nations member states. Faltree consists of 15 counties overseen by the government and military. Faltree has a population of 47 citizens. Faltree maintains formal diplomatic relations with 7 micronations as of April 20th, 2021. Faltree is a member of the Micronational Assembly, and was previously chairman of the organization. Faltree is apart of the Korp Sector.

Etymology

Faltree comes from a portmanteau of fall and tree, coming from the fact that Faltree has a large number of fallen trees. Everywhere in Faltree there is an abundance of trees and general flora.

History

Faltree was formed from the previous provisional government, which existed due to the dissolution of Union of Mountain States. Faltree was officially established 9 March 2020. Faltree began to establish relations with other micronations, joining the Micronational Assembly.

Pre-Senatorial Era

2020 was an interesting year for Faltree, participating in the Hougoumont Campaign, establishing Reorganized Ocean States, and being elected chair of the Micronational Assembly. Faltree acquired the United Ocean States after an agreement between the two leaders. The United Ocean States became a protectorate of Faltree, under a fascist government headed by the Commander of Faltree. From then on UOS would be known as Reorganized Ocean States, taking inspiration from the previous political parties that had once been active in the Ocean States. A day after the establishment of ROS, Faltree joined the war in support of Natlin against the Kingdom of Johnny Land. Faltrian involvement in the Hougoumont Campaign would be significant, as it contributed much in intelligence and design. Eventually Johnny Land would collapse on 6 May, with the Republic of Vöin established by the coalition. Relative stability would continue in Faltree until the dissolution of Reorganized Ocean States on 13 June 2020. On August 1st, 2020, Hunt P. became the 9th Chairman of the Micronational Assembly after being elected by his peers. Faltree was been responsible for the establishment of meetings in the MA, a span of time where delegates congregate to discuss micronationalism and other topics. Faltree experienced a revitalization after the collapse of the plans for the Federal Republic of Vulhalin. In 2021, Faltree coined the Rhode Island Sector and formed the Rhode Island League. Faltree entered into the Greater Aleunnic War on the 2nd of February, 2021. It mainly joined to support the Aleunnic Workers' Republic and Reunited Ocean States, and also to reverse the Partition of the Aleunnic Empire. Initial military operations were halted due to bad weather conditions in the region. Renewed military offensives came in the Spring after the rebellion of the Latalle Monarchy from Reunited Ocean States, and a general improvement in weather. On the 2nd of June, 2021, Canvia was integrated into Faltree upon the agreement of both the Faltrian and Canvian governments. Territorial changes would come with Aleunnic Faltree being formed on the 4th of June and Eccleston formed on the 5th. By this point an election for a new Senate had begun, Faltree had also signed a mutual recognition treaty with the People's Republic of Todt Hill.

Senatorial Era

The Senatorial Era of Faltree began on the 10th of June 2021, with the Faltrian Workers' Party taking an immediate lead with 3 Senators elected. Following close behind them were the Democratic Bleeding Heart Libertarians and Unity - Radical Civil Union which both had 2 Senators elected. Faltree signed a treaty with the Dominion of British North America on the 13th of June, at the time it was the Dominion of West Canada. On the 6th of August, the Democratic Bleeding Heart Libertarians merged with the Democratic-Republican Party to become the Democratic-Libertarian Party. An official adoption of state and civil flags was conducted on the 6th of September, 2021.[1]

Politics and Government

Faltree is currently a semi-democratic autocratic state with a strong executive government assisted by a legislative body known as the Faltrian Senate. The Commander of Faltree holds most authority in the country, but is legally nonpartisan and cannot halt the processes of the Senate. This Commander appoints the Interior Minister of Faltree, whom is the head of government and the legal successor if the Commander can no longer perform his duties. All ministries are handled and overseen by the Interior Minister, and the Interior Minister may create ministries and appoint ministries at any time without input from the Commander. The Interior Minister is given the right to be partisan, usually founding or joining a political party. All legislation and lawmaking is handled by the Senate, composed of 16 Senatorial seats to represent each Faltrian county. Every proposed piece of legislation in the Senate must gain a 61% majority vote before going up to the Interior Minister, who gives either an approving or disapproving vote of the proposition. If the proposition is approved by the Interior Minister, it shall go up to the Commander for approval. If the Commander approves the proposition, it shall go into effect immediately after approval. Any bill that does not reach a majority or is disapproved in any step of the lawmaking process, it may be rewritten and proposed once again. Elections for the Senate are held every 6 months, usually in the months of June and December. If a seat is unfilled anytime between these election periods the Commander will appoint a new senator to the unfilled seat or hold a quick election if there is enough interest in the vacant seat. Irredentism has been popular across the political spectrum during the Senatorial Era, with the August 2021 census finding that 50% of respondents supported it, 44.4% were unsure, and 5.6% opposed it.
