Wuzhou (梧州) officaly known as the Qin Republic (秦共和國), is a micronation located in East Asia near China governing Wuzhou Island, The country is a Unitary semi-presidential constitutional republic, with its seat of government in the capital city of Xuqing. Qin Republic is officially a democracy, elections are held. The PRC has consistently claimed sovereignty over Wuzhou and asserted the Qin Republic is no longer in legitimate existence.However many other states maintain unofficial ties through representative offices and institutions that function as de facto embassies and consulates.

In 2017 it changed from a one-party dictatorship dominated by the Kuomintang to a multi-party democracy with universal suffrage. The country benefits from a highly skilled workforce and is among the most highly educated countries in the world with one of the highest percentages of its citizens holding a tertiary education degree. Wuzhou has a long history of social tolerance and is generally regarded as a liberal country, having legalised abortion, prostitution and euthanasia, while maintaining a progressive drugs policy.

Although Wuzhou is fully self-governing, most international organizations in which the PRC participates either refuse to grant membership to Wuzhou or allow it to participate only as a non-state actor. The PRC has threatened the use of military force in response to any formal declaration of independence by Wuzhou or if PRC leaders decide that peaceful unification is no longer possible


History of the Qin dynasty

Map of the Qin Dynasty

The Qin dynasty was the first imperial dynasty of China, lasting from 221 to 206 BC. The dynasty was formed after the conquest of the six other states by the state of Qin, and its founding emperor was known as Qin Shi Huang, the First Emperor of Qin. The Qin state derived its name from its heartland of Qin, in modern-day Gansu and Shaanxi. The strength of the Qin state was greatly increased by the legalist reforms of Shang Yang in the 4th century BC, during the Warring States period. In the mid and late third century BC, the Qin accomplished a series of swift conquests, first ending the powerless Zhou dynasty, and eventually conquering the remaining six states of the major states to gain control over the whole of China, resulting in a unified China. During its reign, the Qin sought to create an imperial state unified by highly structured political power and a stable economy able to support a large military.

Emperor of the Qin dynasty

The Qin central government sought to minimize the role of aristocrats and landowners and have direct administrative control over the peasantry, who comprised the overwhelming majority of the population. This allowed for the construction of ambitious projects, such as a wall on the northern border, now known as the Great Wall of China. The Qin dynasty also introduced several reforms: currency, weights and measures were standardized, and a uniform system of writing was established. An attempt to restrict criticism led to the infamous burning of books and burying of scholars incident, which has been criticized greatly by subsequent scholars. The Qin's military was also revolutionary in that it used the most recently developed weaponry, transportation, and tactics, though the government was heavy-handed and bureaucratic. Despite its military strength, the Qin dynasty did not last long. When the first emperor died in 210 BC, his son was placed on the throne by two of the previous emperor's advisers, in an attempt to influence and control the administration of the entire dynasty through him. The advisors squabbled among themselves, however, which resulted in both their deaths and that of the second Qin emperor. Popular revolt broke out a few years later, and the weakened empire soon fell to a Chu lieutenant, who went on to found the Han dynasty.The first emperor of the Qin had boasted that the dynasty would last 10,000 generations; it lasted only about 15 years. (Morton 1995, p. 49) Despite its rapid end, the Qin dynasty influenced future Chinese empires, particularly the Han, and the European name for China is thought to be derived from it.

Establishment of the Qin Republic

After over 2,000 years of the Qin dynasty in dissolution, the Qin returned as a micronation, governed as a republic. On 13 April 2014, couple of days after Wuzhou Island was discovered, Wu Li-kai proclaimed the establishment of the Qin Republic in the capital city of New Peking. The republic began governing Wuzhou Island provisionally since the day of the establishment of the Qin Republic. Next day, the Qin government wrote a letter to the Chinese government and the British government about the micronation's claim of independency.

The government of the Qin Republic was founded on the Constitution of the QR and its Three Principles of the People, which states that the QR "shall be a democratic republic of the people, to be governed by the people and for the people." The head of state and commander-in-chief of the armed forces is the president, who is elected by popular vote for about a maximum of 2 four-year terms or more on the same ticket as the vice-president. The president has authority over the National Yuan. The president appoints the members of the Executive Yuan as his cabinet, including a prime minister, who is officially the President of the Executive Yuan; members are responsible for policy and administration. The premier is selected by the president without the need for approval from the legislature, but the legislature can pass laws without regard for the president, as neither he nor the Premier wields veto power. Thus, there is little incentive for the president and the legislature to negotiate on legislation if they are of opposing parties. The QR remained under martial law and much of the constitution was not in effect. Political reforms has liberalized the country and transformed into a multiparty democracy. Since the lifting of martial law, the Qin Republic has democratized and reformed, suspending constitutional components that were originally meant for the whole of Qin.

The Constitution of the Qin Republic protects people's freedom of religion and the practices of belief. Over 90% of the Qin population are adherents of a combination of Confucianism, Chinese folk religion, Buddhism and Taoism.


Qin culture is based from China and has been heavily influenced by Confucianism and conservative philosophies. For much of the country's dynastic era, opportunities for social advancement could be provided by high performance in the prestigious imperial examinations, which have their origins in the Han Dynasty. The literary emphasis of the exams affected the general perception of cultural refinement in Qin and China, such as the belief that calligraphy, poetry and painting were higher forms of art than dancing or drama. Chinese culture has long emphasized a sense of deep history and a largely inward-looking national perspective.
