The Republic of Salania was founded on July 8, 2008 as a Parliamentary Republic. It became the Holy Salanian Empire on July 10, 2010 in a special session of Parliament. Though now an Imperialist Monarchy, Salania still has a Parliament and a Bill of Rights to protect its citizens from oppression.

History

After it's formation, the Republic was almost immediately embroiled in a week-long Civil War, and then a two month war with a neighboring micronation. After weathering these terrible affairs, Salania entered a period of stagnation, ended by the third and most devastating war, which almost resulted in complete capitulation.

The Republic eventually became the Holy Salanian Empire, as of July 10, 2010, though it still retains several elements of a democracy.

The Empire participated in the Second War for Victoria for approximately half an hour.

The Empire ceded a vast amount of new land, including the Kingdom of Milligansa, on August 27, 2010.

The Empire participated in the War of the Forest in support of it's ally, the UPUC.

The Empire remained loyal to the President in the Atlantis Civil War and supported the Loyalist cause.

Despite earlier reservations, the Empire entered the Pimpville War in support of the Republic of Ultamiya after a personal attack on the Emperor.

Government and politics

The Emperor holds all executive and legislative power, while the Parliament acts as the judiciary body. Parliament is free to convene at any time and can try to persuade the Emperor to do something, but they do not have direct authority over him (except in legal matters). Below the Emperor are the various department heads: The Secretaries of Defense, State, Foreign Affairs, the Treasury, Agriculture, Internal Affairs, Commerce & Transportation, and Conservation, the Commissioners of Education and Health & Public Safety, and the Attorney General.

Salania has always been nonpartisan.

Military

The Grand Republican Army was founded on July 8, 2008. It participated in all of Salania's wars and grew to the precision force it is today, though it is now known as the Grand Imperial Army. The Army contains all elements of the military, and is divided into the Air Corps, the Naval Corps, and the General Corps. The GIA has a complex organizational structure and ranking system, and a distinct set of medals and other military awards.

Geography and climate

Salania can experience almost any kind of weather. Droughts, monsoons, blizzards, severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, floods, earthquakes, wind storms, and ice storms are all common. The temperature can range from -20 degrees Farenheit in the winter to 115 degrees Farenheit in the summer. The Salanian Antarctic Territory can reach much lower temperatures, and experiences coastal weather.

Salania includes forests, rolling hills, cheerful meadows, and small creeks and ponds. The Salanian Antarctic Territory, however, is mostly ice.



Media

The Salanian Herald is, as it claims, "from the nation's first and only newsstand". This newspaper, started in September, 2009, shares information about current events throughout Salania once a month.
