The Republic of West Moravia is a micronation founded on 1 January 2018.

History

The Republic of West Moravia was founded on 1 January 2018 by B. Braddock, the current president, and is situated in the UK. Since it's creation it has expanded to include a crown dependency, Fishleyopolis. The Republic of West Moravia has passed numerous Acts of Council, on issues such as Passport Regulation, Border Control Law Enforcement, Health, and Constitution Amendments.

Government and Politics

West Moravia is a Christian Communist Republic. Christian communists hold the biblical verse Acts 4:32–35 as evidence that the first Christians lived in a communist society. Acts 4:32–35 reads: "All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had. With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. And Gods grace was so powerfully at work in them all that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at the apostles feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need"

Christian communism is not merely based on the principles of the early apostles. In fact, Christian communists claim that anti-capitalist ideals are deeply rooted in the Christian faith. While capitalism had not yet formed in the time of Christ, his message was overwhelmingly against the love of money (greed) and in support of the poor. The principles of Christ are seen by Christian communists as staunchly anti-capitalist in nature. Christ taught that the love of money was the root of many evils, by that logic it seems only natural for Christians to oppose a social system founded entirely on the love of money as Christian communists claim.

Law and Order

The West Moravian Judicial System consists of three lower courts, the high court and the presidential court. The lower courts are used for smaller offences, the high court is used for larger offences or long-going allegations, and the presidential court is used for offences like foreign interference and offences which may have caused the government to break down in any way. The courts have never been used since they were set up shortly after the founding of West Moravia. West Moravia has a small police force of 6 and their many work is in the border control sector.

Relations with the United Kingdom

Relations with the United Kingdom are extremely good at the time of writing. The British Embassy in West Moravia and the West Moravian Embassy in Britain between them have two West Moravian and two British diplomats.
