Τhe First Ashukov Federation (Ashukov: Ашуковски Фэдэрация, Ashukovski Federacija) was the government of Ashukovo from May 2013 to October 2014.

Established as a successor to Amager, Ashukovo was a federal, semi-presidential republic, consisting of a varying number of states until its replacement by the Tsardom of Ashukovo.

Amager and establishment of Ashukovo

February 2013 saw Montania and Doshevika admitted as constituents, joining Akharnes, among others, and the secession of Wick from the federation. First Minister Grant responded to these changes by calling for new elections, leading to a coalition government.

First Minister Grant resigned from his position a few weeks later, citing his support for the Hobartstown and Victoria independence movement, which left him incapable of fulfilling his duties. Leon Simpson succeeded him to the position that same day, holding an extraordinary session of the Federal Assembly the next day. He announced plans for the fourth constitution in the history of Amager, and appointed an interim Federal Council until the constitution could be approved.

On 30 March 2013 Amager left the St.Charlian Commonwealth, Hobartstown and Victoria seceded and the Fourth Constitution of Amager was unanimously approved. Leon Simpson was elected President and Joseph Kennedy appointed Prime Minister. Days later, Amager was dissolved by the Federal Assembly following Doshevika stating their desire for secession.

Talks on the formation of a Federation were held by Joseph Kennedy and Edward Jacobs soon after the dissolution of the Confederation of Amager. It was decided that the culture of the Federation should be based around the Slavic cultures of Europe, which both Jacobs and Kennedy admired. Soon after Ashukovo was announced, Dradelia and Dorién stated their intentions to join. The Federation was formed on 25 May 2013, after the Dradelian Parliament became the last of the legislatures of the four aspiring member States to approve the constitution. Joseph Kennedy was elected the first President of the Federation soon after.

Development and growth

After Joseph Kennedy's inauguration on 25 May, he appointed the Prime Minister, the Supreme Court, and the Council of Ministers. After the dissolution of Saint Edward and Zealand on 27 May 2013, the Federal Assembly established honorary citizenship and declared Theledir the Wight, former Prince of Saint Edward and Zealand, an Honorary citizen of the Ashukov Federation. On 31 May, the Republic of Aetos joined the Federation. President Kennedy called an extraordinary session of the Federal Assembly together, where Kennedy appointed a new Prime Minister on the advice of the Assembly.

On 28 August, the Republic of Cvetosadovo joined the Federation and the Republic of Akebar seceded.

Cvetosadov Crisis

It was later discovered after negotiations between Federal President Jacobs and Federal Prime Minister Kennedy with the Cvetosadov President Zoran Illic that an undisclosed foreign national had told him that the Federal Prime Minister had mocked him and the Cvetosadov people in private.

Post-Kennedy Era

On 3 November 2013, the Ashukov government granted independence to the people of Cvetosadovo, per their request. The bill was shot down by the Supreme Court as unconstitutional, citing Article 104 of the Constitution. In December 2013, Montania became an Ashukov Federal Territory after Joseph Kennedy announced his temporary leave from micronationalism. On December 14, 2013, Carpathia was admitted into the Federation and was granted Special Cultural Status, followed by the Democratic Republic of Mouzilo, which joined the Federation on the next day.

Schriber's Term

Soon after Kennedy's return, then Prime Minister Sebastian Schriber led the United Ashukovo coalition to electoral victory, with Schriber becoming third President of the Federation. Schriber's term has been marked by the most active Federal Assembly, with nearly twenty acts being passed in just four months. These acts include the Federal Holidays Act 2014, which established national holidays, the Presidential Act 2014, which established the Council of State and created the Presidential Standard, and the Constitutional Amendment XIV, which expanded the Presidential term from four months to six months. Joseph Kennedy was elected Supreme Judge of the GUM, while Edward Jacobs became the GUM Secretary of the Advancement Council, and numerous treaties and other forms of recognition were signed with significant nations such as Austenasia and St. .

Huff's Term

He soon appointed Joseph Kennedy his Prime Minister, making him the first person to hold the office twice. On 5 June 2014, the District of Laru was absorbed by the Ashukov Federal Territory of Dradelia and was thereby revoked of its Capital City status. The District of Mladorossija, formerly an Akharnian city, was chosen to be the new Federal District. On 4 August 2014, the Federal Assembly Act 2014 was passed, establishing the office of Speaker of the House of Delegates and revoking the Prime Minister of his presiding duties in the Federal Assembly.

Dissolution and Foundation of the Tsardom

During the term of President Jacob Huff inactivity was a huge problem for the Ashukov Federation. On the 2nd of October, 2014, Joseph Kennedy left the Imperial Assembly and renounced all his positions in the government and Montania - which was left to the will of the Tsardom. It was being discussed before the leave of Kennedy as to whether Ashukovo should become a Tsardom to 'solidify culture and increase activity'. Shortly after, on the 10th of October, acting Prime Minister Sebastian Schriber called a vote within the Assembly on the matter. With a resounding 100% in favour, on the 12th of October Manolis Afentoulis was chosen as the Tsar, mainly for his Orthodox faith. Later on, on the 16th of November to be exact, the Tsar proposed his auxiliary cabinet until further elections. As well as this, the coronation of the Tsar was postponed until after Christmas, to coincide with the new government reforms.
