Mekniy-Lurk, or United States of Mekniy and Lurk (Nissiian: Shinsegye-Aēru, officially Shinsegyēī i Aērumēī migunī vvakanain) is a member state of Aenia Confederation in Central Europe. It declared independence on September 20, 2009, making it the oldest active micronation in the Czech-Slovak community. According to the constitution, Mekniy is a symmetrical federation, which is divided into semi-autonomous states, so it is a hybrid mekkism - a symmetrical semi-monarchy, the head of state is the mēk.
Mekniy is a member of the Union of Micronations of Central Europe, where it is one of the founding members (together with Radoslavia it designed the Radoslav-Mekniy model of the organization) and the largest provider of IT solutions (IS STEMMA, FSS STEMMA, IVS STEMMA, etc.) and telecommunications (MPTA). Mekniy signed the International Declaration of Micronational Declaration on Ecological Stewardship, and is also a full member of the Grand Unified Micronational.
Mekniy is the most advanced micronation in Central Europe in terms of culture. Distinct culture, languages, customs and cuisine developed in Mekniy. Mekniy is a landlocked state with an claimed area of 1093 km2. It borders the Czech Republic. The capital is Yeoju (Czech: Jitčin, or incorrectly Jičín). Administratively, it is divided into 10 federal states and 40 districts. In 2020, Mekniy had around 20 registered citizens.
Mekniy has a rich inventory of legends and myths. Parts of modern Mekniyan symbolism are already mentioned in the Vvakeist legend of the origin of the world.
According to Mekniyan legends, the world begins in an endless lake under the supervision of the god Deahwitēr, where the beautiful Sercesba swam. The ugly and envious Kyeoriba and her snake Burhagae also swam in the lake. Kyeoriba had an ugly face studded with acne, three horns growing from her head, and her eyes were red. One day, Burhagae advised Kyeoriba to frighten Sercesba. Kyeoriba slowly approached Sercesba and the word bisolesseonī Pxīcheīn!! (hey you ugly bi*ch) shouted in her ear behind her back. When Sercesba turned, her heart began to beat for the first time. Sercesba was visited by the majestic manticore Mossaesa and led to the heavenly heights, where the gods Deahwitēr, Mēnshis, Sōbeal and others sat. Meanwhile, the earth formed in Sercesba's liver, pure and white. As the earth traveled from the liver to the heart, a small bump appeared on the surface, it was Ilbun Hill.
After several thousand years, the first of the Nakāls, Hanunkx, was born on the island of Pxintyae. 21 years later, the second Nakāl, his son Mekniy, was born. The third Nakal, Keopedi, descended from the cloud, sent by Deahwiter himself. All three Nakālas fled the island, Hanunkx and Mekniy far east, Keopedi after prayer was captured by Mēnshis and moved under Ilbun.
Many thousands of years passed, and Hanunkx and Mekniy lived in secret as warlords under the rule of the cruel Emperor Cxeunodd. However, they could no longer endure his tyranny, Hanunkx reunited one fresh summer night in prayer with his old friend Keopedi, who told him where to flee with his retinue under Ilbun Hill. The next day, Hanunkx communicated his new plan to Mekniy, who gave the order to pack everything and to tell Cxeunodd that the enemy was coming north of the Berhaja River and must defend the empire. The tyrant believed him, and the party fled.
They traveled day and night for a week and five days. However, Hanunkx heard Cxeunodd's army quickly catching up with them. In desperation, he prayed to Sōbeal, who burned the army and killed them by dehydration. The team could continue to travel. After 26 years, they arrived in a landscape surrounded by rocks, and in front of them a hill rose with great vortex above it. Hanunkx and Mekniy met their old friend Keopedi, and at the top of the hill they engaged in deep meditation together. The party below the hill watched the currents of Galno force and the Mēkkatēcha chains flowing up to Sercesba's brain.
Part of the retinue founded the settlement of Sanbang under an extinct volcano south of the Boii oppidum and the province of Beurgila. After several years, the two settlements merged to form the beginning of the city of Yeoju. The second part remained under Ilbun, founded the settlement of Gaokxa (approximately today's Kaywokki to Tokinava) and the province of Ilbunila. Today we refer to the province as Tajibandmida.
The origin of today's Mekniy
The first states in the territory of Mekniy appeared already in 2008, their duration was not long-term. The first stable state was the Kingdom of Nissi, which declared independence on September 20, 2009. In 2012, the Kingdom of Nissi was changed to the First Mekniyan Republic, a name based on a composition of two words, Mek and Nissi, ie historically connected to Tajibandmida.
The year 2014 meant for the then Mekniy a connection with the Esagitian Empire and further federalization. The Meknian Federation became one of the founding members of the Union of Central European Micronations. Towards the end of the year, the territory of today's Aseula was annexed to the federation. At the beginning of 2015, the Mekniyan Federation became part of the Coronese Confederation. It adopts and cooperates on the new common currency of the Corona, the beginnings of the STEMMA system, and the first standardization of Nissian is formed. In Coronese times, Esagitia became an independent empire.
The Coronese Confederation is disbanded the following year, and the new Mekniyan Mekkism adopts a new flag, coat of arms. Annexes Esagitia, a move that is fatal for Mekniy, as a one-day civil war ensues that has divided Mekniy into separate republics. These republics enter the second Coronese state unit, the United Coronese Provinces. The province of Mekniy finally annexes the sacred territory around Ilbun.
Towards the end of the summer of 2017, the Gonoxi Plan Council was preparing a declaration of independence from Corona, which was declared in August 2017, thus creating a new Mekniyan Mekkism. The new Mekkism annexes the territories of western Varglon and Meshil. Between the end of summer 2017 and December 2018, 2 new constitutions of Mekkism are written. The 3rd Constitution, establishing the United States of Mekniy, is ratified at the end of December 2018. Mekniy became largely inactive until 2020. In October, the Noble Republic of Lurk joined Mekniy, and first election in two years took place.
Name and state symbols
The official name of the state according to the constitution is "United States of Mekniy and Lurk", the second name "Sixth Mekkism of Mekniy", short "Mekniy". However, the name Meknijsko does not coincide with the Nissian word "Shinsegye". The origin of the word Shinsegye is estimated to be a composition of roots with the proto-ilmekniy *sianatei (noble) and *sēkatai (sixty) meaning "noble sixty", apparently referring to Hanunkx's retinue.
The national symbols of Mekniy include the flag of Takiniyi, the coat of arms of Mossaesassal, containing the national animal, the mythical manticore of Mossaesa, which led the legendary Sercesba to heaven, the coat of arms of Mekssal and the Mekkatēcha variation. Furthermore, the national symbols includes the national dish bulyeoki, roasted slices of meat with vegetables, the national anthem Ēguka and the motto Nney esta ineul asx (It's only in us).
However, independent states have the right to declare their state symbols, which include, for example, the flag, emblem, state dish, state animal or state tree.
Administrative Divisions and geography
Mekniy is a symmetrical federation that adheres to the NUJUMSE standardization. The first layer is the federation itself, the second layer is the states with governors as heads of states. There are counties on the third layer with sherrifs as heads of counties. In the fourth layer there are municipalities that are not dependent on the third layer, an example is Yeoju, which is located in three counties.
Mekniy is a mostly flat country. The Mekniyan landscape is different in different parts of the country. It is generally divided into 6 categories, South Mekniyan nature (around Yeoju and below, characterized by a high incidence of poplars, small number of shrubs and forests), Central Mekniyan (from Yeoju to Tokinava, many fields and shrubs, contains a meteorological anomaly known as the "Brada Line", which separates the north of Varglon from Popekia and Slessin by different weather conditions, very light and lively greenery unlike the rest of Mekniy), Praxoveu (Praxoveu rocks and surrounding area, many rocky formations, wooded landscape), eastern nature (around the town of New Seoul, very forested nature , humid climate, sometimes reminiscent of a forest), northern nature (around the town of Mikasseu, cooler landscape, highly forested nature) and Meshil nature (similar to Central Mekniyan).
The rivers Ssidelhwa (Cidlina), Aesara (Jizera), Libaehwa (Libuňka) and parts of Albhwa (Elbe) flow through Mekniy.
Mekniy is a representative democracy, a federation, a Mekkism (a type of monarchy based on the philosophy of Mekniy).
The head of state the mēk (who's also leader of Waism, the state religion of Mekniy), the philosophy of vvake also plays a big role here. Power is divided into three, legislative, executive and judicial, which interact. The central bank of Mekniy is the Federal Bank of Mekniy, Corosystem (Pxederalēī bankeon anShinsegye, Yeonsistemeon), which issues Mekniyan Corona banknotes.
Federal government and state administration
The federal government of Mēkkxu (meehk khu) is the supreme body of executive power in Mekniy. Its position is defined by the Constitution of Mekniy. The government consists of a president (kivoki, president of Mēkkxu) and ministers.
The historical heads of government or official advisors were: Tesa Hab-na (adviser; 2009 - 2012), Eariana Sinha-na (kivoki; 2012 - 2015), Suwin Dobaa-na (kivoki; 2015 - 2018), Sakxva Eum-den (kivoki ; 2018 - 2019), Siwil Ara-den (Prime Minister; 2018 - 2019).
The federal government includes the Ministry of the Interior, the Ministry of Telecommunications and Informatics, the Ministry of Culture, the Ministry of the Environment and Agriculture, the Ministry of Inner Safety, the Ministry of Interior, and the Ministry of Finance.
Legal and judicial system
The Mekniyan legal system is part of the Anglo-American type of legal culture, a court precedent is applied. The sources of Mekniyan law include the aforementioned judicial precedent, legal law, which is established by laws approved by the Senate of Mēkkxu, and customary law, which is restricted, is approved by the lower house of parliament, Congress. Common law varies from state to state in the federation.
The judiciary in Mekniy is divided into the federal judiciary (Mēkkxu Judiciary) and the regional judiciary. The highest court is the Federal Constitutional Court Mēkkxu (Konstituciyeonī kōmviron Mēkkxu), the lower level is the Court of Appeal Mēkkxu (Ōkseonī kōmviron Mēkkxu). The lowest level of Mekniyan justice is the state courts (ōngugeonī kōmvirol), which are run by state governments.
Mekniyan cuisine was strongly influenced by Central European pan-cuisine, Czech cuisine (keolaji, kandaelēnjeug, peovidlah) and German cuisine (Hwainēī oseomemsōm, etc.). Despite the strong influence, they differ in many ways. Mekniyan cuisine is often lighter and poorer due to the position of Mekniy in the Krkonoše foothills, which has long been one of the poorer areas.
The national dish of Mekniy is bulyeoki, fine slices of meat roasted with a mixture of vegetables on a fire, or more often today in oil with garlic. There are many types of bulyeoki, most often divided according to the meat used into porkrusēībulyeoki (mixture of pork, cabbage and carrots, often pickled), ssohwabsēībulyeoki (beef with root vegetables and wine, also sometimes called Rēgsmēmsōm) and nyeokerkoēībulyeoki (chicken with fresh vegetables). Recipes for bulyeoki also include Jinābeulyeoki - Chinese style bulyeoki or mexikeobulyeoki - Mexican style hot bulyeoki, etc.
The most basic ingredient is garlic (oluon), from which garlic oil, garlic butter, roasted garlic or soup are prepared, as well as onions (keopon), wheat (bbareun) and ground flour (meleobomeun) and wheat drink (mertah). Many vegetables are also used, such as spinach (mulgehwa), kohlrabi (nesa), kale (kāl), radish (pogesa) and leek (peasomeun). Fruits form a strong part of Mekniyan cuisine, most apples (ābelleon), pears (shyaepkon) and strawberries (dalhen).
Mekniy is known as the land of a thousand languages, and despite its small size, it is home to many languages of the Boyoheum branch of Indo-European languages. The best known and most widespread language is Nissian. It is a semi-inflected language that is related to Thornian, Menders and Jesenian.
