The Princely Union of Saint Edward and Domanglia (also known as the PUSED, St. Edward and Domanglia and simply Domanglia) is an independent nation located around the world. Unrecognised as of yet by any member state of the UN, Domanglia is a new unrecognised state more commonly referred to as a micronation. It was founded by Urokah Doshevik as a cultural, monarchist, environmentalist, euroscepticist sovereign state and continues to be, recently adopting Theodorist reforms.
Domanglia literally means "Dom's England", in reference to Urokah "Dom" Doshevik and the nation he originally founded the unrecognised state in. Saint Edward is in reference to St. Edward the Confessor, former patron saint of England and old English king. This is a mark of respect (as he is considered to be a good king and saint) and his name in the name of the country is a representation of monarchism and Christian faith. So Saint Edward and Domanglia, "Domanglia" representing the land itself, means "Monarchy, God and the Land of Domanglia".
Early St. Edwardian and Domanglian nations
Before Saint Edward and Domanglia as we know it existed, two unrecognised states were present in what is now Busorov.
In 2009, Urokah "Dominic" Doshevik, who later went on to establish Saint Edward and Domanglia and become Premier, declared his bedroom to be an independent nation known as Domroom. Domroom was a mainly fictional nation, as it was made up of cuddly toys, much like the Kingdom of Juclandia. Dominic declared himself "God" of Domroom and there were regular elections for toy President. Domroom had its own flag, salute, and fully-functioning democratic toy government.
Dominic's brother, Oshav "Oliver" Doshevik, had also declared his bedroom to be an independent nation of toys, known as Gappyroom and later known as Ollieroom. Oliver was "God" of Gappyroom and there were regular elections for Prime Minister. On the 15th May 2009 Domroom declared a state of war on Gappyroom due to Oliver terrorising the cuddly toys of Domroom with his general nastiness. This was known as the Blue War, because the initial purpose of the war was to make the enemy (Gappyroom) feel sad, or "blue". On the 19th May 2009 the "first physical contact" of the war took place, when a cuddly toy moose from Domroom (known as Moosy) was "attacked" by a blacktip shark toy from Gappyroom while in the corridor that linked the different bedrooms of the house. Dominic wrote in his scrapbook (the book that documented much of Domroom, Gappyroom and the Blue War) that Moosy was "highly injured and will be needing medical attention". In response, later that day the Domroom government ordered an air raid on Gappyroom. A toy seal called "Sea Lion" conducted the air raid, flying into Gappyroom and dropping imaginary bombs all over Gappyroom, knocking down a lot of Gappyroom structures, injuring Gappyroom citizens and causing general chaos before flying back to Domroom. For his excellent work Sea Lion was made leader of the Grand Dom Air Force. On the same day Moosy was made leader of the Grand Dom Ground Army. Later in the day, the toy leaders from Domroom and Gappyroom got together and signed a treaty stating that the Blue War was officially still going, but there was not to be any further physical conflict.
On the 28th June 2009, the Prime Minister of Gappyroom (now called "Ollieroom"), Posh Ted, retired and an election took place, in which a toy dog called Spany was elected.
On the 29th June 2009 the President of Domroom, Paddington Bear, visited Prime Minister Spany of Ollieroom's house and discussed trading and an end to the Blue War with Spany and the MP of Trading in Ollieroom, Teddy. During the meeting, Oliver attacked Dominic. This could've caused the diplomatic talks to fail, but because toys were starving and getting ill and injured on both sides due to the various "toy battles" and lack of trade the Head of Health in Domroom (Hospital Ted) and the Old Wise Leprechaun of Domroom joined the meeting and the diplomatic talks continued. The diplomats discussed how they could end the Blue War but still get revenge for what they had done to each other during the war. Eventually the whole government of Ollieroom got involved in the meeting. Talks continued through the night and carried on through the next day. Eventually they agreed on a ceasefire. The Blue War was at a temporary hault. President Paddington Bear of Domroom made a "speech" when ceasefire was declared, "Cherish these moments of peace greatly, for nobody knows when the war will start again. Cherish the way you can actually go somewhere without being robbed [by Ollieroom people] on the way back. Cherish peace. Cherish liberty. Cherish happiness. Cherish marmalade. Oh. Why not marmalade? Well I like marmalade. Who doesn't? You? Um...er...Peace!".
On the 28th November 2010 President Paddington Bear of Domroom and Prime Minister Spany of Ollieroom signed a peace treaty, officially ending the Blue War once and for all. At the peace conference things didn't quite go to plan, Paddington was attacked by Dominic's pet dog, Margaret "Maggie" May, Ollieroom's Minister of Defence (Hamster) was replaced by Blue Ted under PM Spany's orders, a group of Ollieroom Uglydolls came to the conference and made a protest for Uglydoll rights in Ollieroom, and PM Spany tried to start a new war. But despite all that the peace treaty was signed.
But as the two nations celebrated the peace, on the same day President Paddington of Domroom announced his resignation from office, after being President for over a year since he succeeded President Travel Ted (the first President of Domroom) back on the 14th May 2009. So after the conference a toy election was held. There were 3 political parties in the election. The first was the Wise Senate, a political party containing 5 toy members. The only other Presidents of Domroom that there had ever been (Travel Ted and Paddington Bear) were part of this party, and their candidate was Christmas Jumper Ted, the Vice President of Domroom at the time. The simple aim of the Wise Senate was to "make the land of Domroom flourish and prosper". No other party had ruled Domroom before, so many toys wanted change. The second was the Jingle Party, led by Spot, it contained 5 toy members (most of which made a jingling sound) and by the time of the election it had a new aim- to make Domroom into a police-controlled state, with strict laws and rules. The third was the Uglydoll Party, a new political party that had never been in a previous election. The party was made up of four Uglydolls who wanted Uglydoll rule in Domroom. Their leader was Ox, but his sister, Moxy, was their candidate to be President.
When all the toys of Domroom voted the votes were counted up by Professor Quackers and it was announced that the Uglydoll Party had won. Moxy became the first female (and Uglydoll) President of Domroom and Ox became her Vice President.
After this Domroom and Ollieroom became inactive and were eventually forgotten about. Dominic later found out about more serious successionist movements and founded Domanglia in 2011. Many of Domroom's toy citizens have been discarded, but although Domroom and Ollieroom became inactive, they were never disestablished, and to this day they remain self-declared independent cuddly toy nations consisting of two bedrooms in what is now Busorov, Domanglia.
Modern Saint Edward and Domanglia
On the 24th May 2011 a British teenager called Dominic (now known as Urokah Doshevik) had an idea, and that idea was to break away from the European Union, to create his own nation full of the culture and tradition that is rarely seen in most nations today. By the 27th May 2011 Urokah was the emperor of a small sovereign nation that consisted of his house in Cambridgeshire, known as Domum. This nation was called the Domanglian Empire, and it soon spread. By 30th October 2011 the Domanglian Empire had a lot of teritory in England, North America, the moon, the Canary Islands and not to mention its claims to Rockall, Scarborough Shoal and Socotra Rock. On the 31st October 2011 (All Hallow's Eve), the Domanglian Empire changed into the Federal Republic of Domanglia. This event was known as the Halloween Republican Transition. On this day the Domanglian Empire lost all of its territory apart from Rockall, Socotra Rock, Scarborough Shoal and Domanglian Lunar Territory. On this day part of Antarctica became part of Domanglia aswell as Pluto. A federal parliamentary republic was set up in Domanglia. The Federal Republic of Domanglia was born, built to protect and serve the monarchy of the UK while trying to become the most eco-friendly and most democratic republic the world has ever seen. Sarah of Domum (Svenlana Doshevik) was elected Federal President and former emperor Urokah was elected Federal Chancellor. On the 22nd November 2011 Domanglia became a Crannist nation. On the 14th December 2011, Urokah made the Federal President sign a document announcing her resignation and giving Urokah the power to make Domanglia a Commonwealth realm of another UN-unrecognised nation called the Kingdom of Juclandia. This saw the end of the Federal Republic of Domanglia and the beginning of the Royal Domanglian Federation. On the 27th January 2012 an uprising known as the 27th January Movement overthrew Urokah and created the Theodorist Kingdom of Domanglia, with Governor Akonrad Gordorf of the Domanglian Antarctic Province as Prime Minister. King Ciprian (king of both Domanglia and Juclandia) sided with the theodorist revolutionaries and stayed as king of Domanglia during its Theodorist period. However, on the 29th February Urokah gained support from the likes of Akonrad and other former supporters of the theodorist government and came back into power, restoring the Federation and punishing Ciprian the Traitor by removing his position as king of Domanglia and renouncing his citizenship. Declan Mac Donnchadha-Houghton, Emperor of Austenasia, was invited to become the new Domanglian king. Akonrad Gordorf was later put on trial. On the 1st February Domanglia stopped being crannist and on the 14th February a group of nations assembled and signed the Treaty of Domum- a treaty that created the all new Kingdom of Domanglia and made Urokah the king, along with limiting Domanglia's territory to Domum and a few Antarctic regions. On the 25th March the Treaty of Domum was declared void and Domanglia annexed two new regions- Magna Greenlandia and Outessia. As the Domanglian realm was technically an illegal state thanks to the Treaty of Domum being void, on the 12th April 2012 the king of Domanglia created and signed an official royal document. This document made Domanglia a legal state once again, and it also made the Parliament of Domanglia be dissolved, made political parties be abolished, made the position of Premier be abolished, made power go to the monarchy, and established a Privy Council to advise and rule alongside the monarch. This marked an end to the semi-constitutional monarchy and a beginning to the current aristocratic elective monarchy that Domanglia is today. On the 17th April 2012 Domanglia united with the rest of Lorrikastead to form the Ossavak Federation, and Domanglia remained as a federated state of Ossavakia until the 24th June 2012, the same day it dropped its claim to Magna Greenlandia and Outessia, annexed the Domanglian Lordship of Glencoe, became the protector of the Ossakanadian Transitional Republic and gained official control of the Shaderforce military organisation.
On the 14th July 2012 King Urokah and the Duchess of Domum represented Domanglia at the largest gathering of micronationalists to date: PoliNation: 2nd Intermicronational Conference on Micronations.
On the 10th August 2012 HRM King Sebastian (now Kalev Vostokreig), Monarch of Carrum - a constituent state within the Saxon Empire - became the Kingdom of Domanglia's first Oshah. An Oshah's job was to guide and represent the spirituality and religion of Domanglia and know the United Words of Greatness - a traditional Domanglian secret spell. Sebastian became known as Oshah Harold.
On the 11th August 2012 the Kingdom of Domanglia once again lost its independence and became a constituent country of a longtime Germanic friend: the Saxon Empire. The Domanglian King asked to make Domanglia become a part of the Saxon Empire because within it Domanglian politicians could be involved in a larger legislature, and as Domanglia would be in a larger nation it would get more defence, power, influence AND a greater chance of being recognised by the United Nations.
On the 2nd September King Urokah of Domanglia represented the Saxon Empire at the Draega Multinational summit in the Union of Draegan Republics, his second visit to the UDR and his third summit. Zealandia and Palasia (along with the UDR itself) also attended the event. After a national referendum was held from Sunday 23rd to Tuesday 25th 2012, the Kingdom of Domanglia officially declared its independence from the Saxon Empire. The results were that only about 21% of the population voted to stay as a part of the Empire, and roughly 43% (double the amount of people who voted to stay Saxon) voted for Domanglian independence. The other 36% of the population did not vote, although at least one of them wanted Domanglian independence. (The reason for all these people not voting was because of either refusal to vote, missing the deadline to vote, or inactivity).
Now Domanglia was an independent nation once again the King proposed new methods to rule the realm, all a part of his New Domanglia scheme. This included an expulsion of inactive citizens (after the terrible amount of citizens who did not vote due to inactivity was revealed), extra efforts for getting new (active) citizens and a new "bugger all" pro-alliance, not anti-war, Domanglia-first, "nobody above us" foreign policy, which is unlike its previous pro-peace, "we'll do as we're told", "let people be above us" policy.
On the 6th October 2012 the most shocking development in the New Domanglia project was revealed. All Domanglian regions apart from the original territory - Domum - were dropped. Domum and Domanglia thus became one and the same, so this change called for a new name. The name "Over-Lorrokha Kingdom" came into use. The ex-regions of Domanglia became Over-Lorrokha Dependent Territories- colonies belonging to the realm. For example, the Domanglian Lordship of Glencoe became the Over-Lorrokha Lordship of Glencoe and the former Antarctic regions of Domanglia united into the Over-Lorrokha Antarctic Dependent Territory (OLADT), the OLK's official Antarctic claim.
On the 9th October 2012, after many months of absolute rule by King Urokah, the longtime Over-Lorrokha monarch abdicated when he made the nation join the new union of Christian breakaway states called the "Holy Utopian Confederacy". By Utopian law, the Emperor of the Holy Utopian Confederacy must be the monarch of each member-state, thus making Utopia one big personal union. So, on the 9th October, when the OLK joined the Holy Utopian Confederacy, Harry Fitzpatrick, the Emperor of Utopia, automatically succeeded Urokah Doshevik as King of the OLK. Harry became known in the OLK as King Oshav Divinus. Ex-King Urokah Doshevik took the title of Prince-Elector- the head of government of the OLK. The role of the monarch had once again changed, for the new King Oshav was not an absolute monarch like his predessecor, but a simple ceremonial head of state (like former kings Declan and Ciprian) with only a few special powers. On the same day as King Oshav's acession to the throne Prince-Elector Urokah abolished the Privy Council of the OLK, because now the absolute monarchy was over it was unneeded. Also, because the Emperor of Utopia/King of the OLK was now the spiritual/religious leader of the Over-Lorrokha people the title of "Oshah" was abolished as it was also unneeded.
On the 18th October 2012 Urokah and the former Oshah Harold (Sebastian, who is known in the nation as "Kalev Vostokreig") asked King Oshav to abdicate, as Urokah wanted to leave the Holy Utopian Confederacy and get a new princely monarch. Urokah and Kalev were backed by Palasia (ruled by Akonrad Gordorf - an ex-Over-Lorrokha revolutionary who led the 27th January Movement), another British breakaway state that threatened to invade and overthrow Oshav if he didn't abdicate. Oshav did abdicate, but his final act as King was to illegally give the Over-Lorrokha Kingdom to Palasia. Because Oshav's abdication meant the OLK was no longer a member of Utopia, the title of "Prince-Elector" (Urokah's title as head of government) ceased to exist. So the OLK was without a King (head of state) or a Prince-Elector (head of government), so the nation was in anarchy AND being claimed by Palasia. This disaster was known as the October Abdication Crisis, and it got a lot worse when nightfall came, when Palasia declared war on the Over-Lorrokha realm, this war being known as the Very Brief War. However, on the 20th October Urokah (supported by the National Liberation Army) came back into power and set up a new government, ending the anarchy and making peace with Palasia, creating the new Over-Lorrokha Republic with himself as the first Popular Premier.
It was eventually realised that the Over-Lorrokha Republic was not very Domanglian at all. It was oppressive and republican when Domanglia was founded on liberty and monarchism. So on the 21st November 2012 a group of important Domanglians voted for a new monarch. Crown Prince Jonathan of Austenasia, Prime Minister of Austenasia was elected, taking the throne on the same day and becoming known as Prince Darkomere of the House of Kaiser, thus marking the official end of the brief Republic and the beginning of the current Princely Union of Saint Edward and Domanglia.
