The national anthem of Gemnoviag is Star Shines its Light on Gemnoviag. Gemnoviag is a micronation founded in 2001 in North Idaho with 229 citizens and recognized independence in 2008. When first founded the country was called the Principality of Gemnoviag. After the collapse of the monarchy the nation then became the United Communist Society of Gemnoviag or the UCSG. The government is now a Republic and the President is Jaden Rosencrans. Now as of 2007 the nation is becoming more known recently the President did an interview with the Shoshone News Press and was placed in the Kootenai, Post Falls, and Shoshone Newspapers. The nation has 0.12 mi. of land and the Capital is Azythia. The national currency distributed is the Gemel recently switched to Paper Money and the coins previously used. Now the nation has formed a real government and, are proud to have Jessica Williams as their Vice President again.
When entering Gemnoviag the reality is that, well it looks just like the USA... However, there are a few differences. In the summer the Gemeleze Street Meet occurs and all of Forsythia St. is colored in Red, Green, and White, the colors of the banner. The race to see who can finish first is always enjoyed by the people and is a popular tourist attraction. Gemnoviag is now finally on Google Maps (C) and popularity on the internet is still rising. The number of tourists entering Azythia went up from around 20 in 2005 to around 200 in 2008. The "End of the Year" parade is another popular attraction for the small nation. It attracts a croud of around 350 (229 being the actual national population) as the national anthem and "Auld Lang Syne" are sung together in harmony.
Returning from an International Trip
Gemnoviag's President Jaden Rosencrans just returned from his trip to Vaduz, Port-Au-Prince, Novosibirsk, and Beijing after meeting several important people and watching some of the Summer Olympics. The trip took a total of 2 weeks and he left from Spokane Intl. Airport (GEG) and exchanged flights at San Francisco Intl. Airport (SFO) for Zurich, Switzerland.
Growing on the Global Trade
A recent trip to Washington D.C. brought Gemnoviag up in Global Production. Now they are at 0.3%... Not a lot but Gemnoviag is now sending wheat and electronic goods to Russia, Liechtenstein, Haiti, and Malawi. As the American economy is fading, the Gemeleze economy is getting stronger! The reason for this is probably because Gemnoviag depends very little on America for any of it's imports and the USA isn't really a big taker of the exports either...
Allied and Watchful Nations
Gemnoviag is allied with a large number of micronations but only two independently recognized nations.
Recognized by: Liechtenstein, Haiti, Kaznia, the UNAM, and many more.
Gemnoviag is also closely watched by nations... The United States closely watches the doings of Gemnoviag over the internet.
Gemnoviag is now completely repelling any contact what-so-ever with Mira-Derby after they accused Gemnoviag of crimes and broke off communications. So since they broke the treaty, Gemnoviag refuses to return contact for fear of "crimes against the country" so put by the foreign minister of Mira. It should be noted that this nation has since collapses (in spring 2008) and the current Territory of Mira - Derby, which is now governed by a temporary governmental commission, is not connected to the former nation's government in anyway.
During the winter of 2002 at the beginning of the Communist party in Gemnoviag, a civil war broke out after 2 nations tried to form from Gemnoviag, Razahia, and Ozark. Razahia put up a brilliant fight and Ozark found a diplomatic resolution with us the war ended at the end of the Communist reign in 2006. Razahia has become a thing of the past and Ozark Dissolved back to Gemnoviag in January of 2007.
