The Republic of Epistimia, most commonly known as just Epistimia, is a nation that is comprised of 5 provinces, making up a total area of about 300,000 square kilometers on the continent of North America.


Etymology

The name "Epistimia" comes from the Greek word for science, "epistimi," to represent the core values of Epistimia and its society.

History

The nation of Epistimia came from the nation of Kolderland, a nation originally planned as a socialist nation on November 26. After switching to open sourced capitalism on February 21, Epistimia changed its flag, adopted a new anthem, and altered its planned form of government.

Geography

Location

Epistimia is located in the provinces of Labrador and Quebec of Canada. It has the Torngat Mountains, at the northern most points of Epistimia. It also has access to the Atlantic ocean on the east side. The current ruler of Epistimia does not live in this area yet. He has yet to set up the government, and for now Epistimia is only a de jure state.

Climate

The climate of Epistimia is about 16 degrees Celsius in the summer and -18 in the winter.

Politics and Government

Political Parties

In Epistimia there are no political parties. In the words of the Premiér, the leader of Epistimia, this is “to allow people to think for themselves.”

Democracy

Epistimia is a semi-direct democracy. Epistimians will elect representatives for government offices, but can petition for the removal or addition of laws and have the right to protest.

Leader

There is a government officer, the Premiér, who is a non-executive figure and that is the face of Epistimia. The true executive part is the Ion Council, of which the Premiér is a member. Members of Ion council run for the Council and are elected by direct vote.

Economy

Epistimia is a open source capitalist system, in which there are no patents or copyright. This is to allow ideas to be added on to without fear of fines or legal backlash.
