The Federal Republic of Hurricane was a micronation based in Central Arkansas. The current semi-provisional government's effort to build a complete state was being led by James Tyhurst. The intended result was a state capable of high unity and efficiency. On 29 January 2012, it was declared a specially administered protectorate in the Free Pristinian Republic.
In 2009, Hurricane's first President, James Tyhurst, became acquainted with Guillaume Sœrgèl, the leader of Sandus. Sœrgèl informed Tyhurst about his micronation, and the latter soon became interested in this project. Over time, Tyhurst worked as a Governor, Admiral and Legislator in the Revolutionary Council in Sandus. However, this era ended with the massive and sudden collapse of the left wing leadership of Sandus, which caused Sandus to become inactive which thus allowed the Sandus District of Arkansas, of which Tyhurst was a Governor to declare independence on July 30, 2010.
On August 2, 2010, Hurricane's second citizen (William Danforth aka Sebastian Linden) joined and was nominated Sub-President for Foreign Affairs by President Tyhurst. On August 4, 2010, Danforth founded the Labor Union of Journalists and was thus entitled to a seat in the Corpus. On August 5, 2010, the Eleytherian County of Danforthshire ceded approximately a 24th of its territory to the Federal Republic of Hurricane, thus creating the Trinity Territory. This was later discovered to be falsely claimed.
In the middle of August, 2010 William Danforth resigned briefly from micronationalism. This left Trinity without residency and the President without assistance. The state went inactive until January 29, 2012, when Sebastian Linden, its presumably only remaining citizen declared it a specially administered protectorate of the Free Pristinian Republic.
The Hurricane Republic and it's capital district was centered around Lake Hurricane and the whole of Hurriane Lake Estates. The nation plans to claim the city of Bryant in the future in order to improve the country's self-sufficeincy capabilities
The national government of Hurricane comprises of the executive and legislative Cervello, the Cervello electing Corpus, the constituion guarding Supreme Court, and the interest representing Organs. Their duties are more detailed below.[[File:Corporatist_model.png|thumb|An example of corporatism , as it would be used in a Fascist country
The Corpus was the governmental branch of Hurricane government responsible for electing the President and voting him out when necessary. Members of the Corpus are called Senators and technicially serve 4 year terms. Half of the Corpus was to be made of State electees and representatives of the different labor unions in Hurricane by profession.
The Cervello encompasses the national executive and legislative powers of Hurricane. The President was the head of the Cervello and may appoint Sub-Presidents to assist him in various ways. When the President was voted out, his Sub-Presidents must leave with him.
The only President in the nation's short lived history, James Tyhurst, was working alone and running all positions for the entire duration of his term.
The Supreme Court encompassed the Supreme Judges of Hurricane and their bueracrats. The Court was responsible for choosing the constituional template in use, the protection of the constitution in use and the preservation of templates not in use.
The task of the Organs was very important for the Cervello. They were responsible with being experts on their field of representation to make sure the President and his assistants are very well informed with the situation at hand. The Organs are made and organized by the Ministry of Organs.
For example: If there was a logging industry in Hurricane's territory, the Logging Organ would comprise of logging employers, employees, consumers of logging products, and enviormentalwast groups concerned with our forests.
The Hurricane Republic was very tolerant of government types and would not join alliances intent on fighting other ideologies and government systems. The state currently has not identified itself on the Conservative-Liberal spectrum. President Tyhurst was actively desiring oppurtunites to increase Hurricane's size via peaceful annexations and other land agreements. Annexed governments may have their constitution preserved as a template.
Simply enough in Hurricanian terms , the nation will recognize all micronations that do not implement discriminatory policies. Nations must first contact Hurricane by the President or any Sub-President he has appointed for Foreign Affairs and will accept mutual recognition "by word of mouth" if treaties are deemed less desirable.
All nations that have established relations with Hurricane have the right to an Organ within the nation. It will compose of the foreign nation's dedicated representative and groups that are also interested in the nation that also exist or plan to exist in Hurricane.
Mutually recognized states
Although the Republic was not actively seeking alliances it was still in the process of getting mututal recognition from many states. Here are nations who accepted formally and had at least starting relations, guaranteed a representative Organ to the Cervello.
The single most influential business in Hurricane was real estate. Although most residents work outside the country activities such as fishing, swimming, boating, and tennis help promote the well being of the populace.
The state limits economic intervention into cases where the market was simply going towards the wrong direction. The government was a strong promotor of individual initiative, fair competition, and volunteerism.
Hurricane has a tolerant culture comprised mostly of African-American and European American influences. As all of the children in Hurricane participate in the same public schools their youth culture was also relatively consistent.President Tyhurst has declared Tool to be "The summit of mankind's musical genius and skill combined". He also approves of other heavy rock bands that include Metallica and Godsmack.
These styles of music are rather unpopular in Trinity Territory, with musical styles tending more towards mainstream pop music and classical compositions, especially by Russian composer Dimitri Shostakovich, who also composed the Hurricanian national anthem.
The style in clothing typical for the Capital District currently consists of relatively distinct sets of casual mesh shorts/T-shirts combinations and semi-casual blue jeans and button-up shirts. In formal occasions the President was forced to borrow suits from his father.
In Trinity Territory, on the other hand, the style of clothing even for non-casual occasions was rather old-fashioned and formal, with women almost exclusively wearing dresses or skirts and men formal trousers in blue, black or grey and button-up shirts in cold colours like light blue, dark blue, white or white with a discreet lineated pattern.
Journalism was very important to the people of Hurricane for information was power though due to low supply the nation has had trouble getting work for the populace. In order to prevent a permanently biased an propagandistic press, Hurricane wishes for as much journalism as possible to be independent of the state. As of yet, no citizens of Hurricane are willing to give up work in the government and exclusively specialize in journalism. Thus, all journalists currently are also State Employees.
The military of Hurricane was currrently undergoing formation to set standardized quality in all active branches. The majority of military equipment was currently from the period when Hurricane was a part of Sandus.The proud point of Hurricane's military was its naval fleet. Its one and only ship was the HNS Principe. It was a proud and red canoe commanded personally by Admiral James Tyhurst. Its name came from when it served Sandus as the PSS Principe. The name has stayed the same in respect to the dead mother country.
Regulations and standardization for the Land-borne Army has not been completed though it may consider itself active as the Provisional Militia, which was the current improvised defense force of Hurricane.
The Air Force was also currently inactive but hopes to purchase remote-controlled devices as soon as possible.
