Paloma, officially the United Paloman States, is a self-proclaimed landlocked republic which is a sovereign state or micronation, located in the the U.S state of Michigan. It was founded after the collapse of the Free Socialist State of Paloma. Its is made up of three states and two special administrative regions. Paloma's de facto capital is Paloma City.
Paloma is the founder and head member of the Great Lakes Council and the League of Nations. Paloma and its states are officially trilingual at the federal level, using the English, Spanish and French languages on signs and official documents and is enforced by the Paloman Language Police.
The word Paloma comes from the Spanish world "dove", usually white in color, are used in many settings as symbols of love, peace or as messengers. Doves appear in the symbolism of Judaism, Christianity, Islam and Paganism, and of both military and pacifist groups. Doves are also a religious symbol, and in biblical text, God sent the flood to earth, a dove told Noah that there was land.
The first and current President, Aidan McGrath fully created the Republic's laws, principals and flag. Since 7 November 2019, the Republic has not entered into a diplomatic issue with any other micronation.'
Declaration of independence
In the afternoon on 7 November 2019, after changing the government of the People's Federation of Quebec to a democracy, the president of the Sauveuse Republic removed the Prime Minister of the Republic who was at the time, Eryn Lewis and dissolved the National Assembly. Plenty of members created a opposition government and claimed to be the successor state of the People's Federation of Quebec which was still holding a seat in the Grand Unified Micronational at the time. Some even said it looked like a "Civil war", and others called it a "Coup" Later on the two would fight over who is the legal successor of the PFQ. On 10 November 2019, Lewis proposed a deal spliting the PFQ's land claim 50/50, giving then modern day Sacréeians what used to be Citadelle and the Sauveuse Gabriel Richard. It was also apart of the deal for the McGrath to claim that the Sauveuse is the legit government and that he would have to change the name. After the deal was finalized on 10 November 2019 the Sacrée Republic came into existence and peacefully received independence from the Sauveuse Republic.
Unofficially joining the British Empire
On 15 November 2019, the Sacrée government officially joined the British Empire and recognized current monarch Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth of Nations. A day later on November 16 2019, they declared independence from the Empire and formed into a commonwealth based off Canada and Australia. Since the founding and departure of the Empire into a Commonwealth the Monarch has not recognized the Commonwealth officially.
Maria Conference and Socialist transition
On 20 November 2019, at Heritage Park in Taylor was a brief conference including sixteen members of Sacree including the then Prime Minister. They agreed to abolish the imperialism in favor of Marxist and Leninist ideas. The sixteen members at this short conference became what is known as the Paloman regime or the "Big 16", which discreetly control Paloma and its Government.
Free Socialist State of Paloma (2019-2020)
After the Maria Conference the state officially became a one party socialist nation called "Paloma". From 29 December 2019, Paloma received plenty of historical changes. In early January the Constitution was reworked giving the Communist Party more power then before and later that month the national flag was redesigned to be more inspired by Hispanic culture. The final changes were finalized on the 2 February 2020, the final day of the claimed era, changes made were a new motto, anthem and name, the "Free Socialist State of Paloma". On 21 April 2020 with complications with the internal structure, the Free Socialist State of Paloma signed the instrument to dissolution and Paloma was reformed in the United Paloman States.
