The binational germanic-american State of Pasavantia is a micronation founded on the 5. of August 2018 by Richard S. and James Gromis during a conversation regarding micronationalism.
The name stems from James G. observing the name of the german water solutions company Passavant  emblazoned on a manhole cover. S. and Gromis liked the sound of it, so they altered it slightly, and it became the name of their micronation.
After the walk that spawned the concept for the Pasavantian State, S. and Gromis continued to conceptualize and plan the socio-political furnishings of the Nation. On the 10th of August, they officially declared the John F. Kennedy School , the sovereign territory of the State under German Non-Profit Law. This had been done with out consent or adversity by the schools administration and is seen as purely idealistic. Furthermore, that day also marked the appointment of S. as the Prime Minister of the State and Gromis as President. On the 14. of September, 2 new ministers were swron into office.
Even though any military force is banned by the constituion, Pasavantia has a small armed police-esque office, called the Freedom Force.
