Egan, officially the Banana Republic of Egan is a 1 year old micronation located in Montreal, Canada. It was founded on July 10th, 2017. The nation is the birthplace of Crumology. It has its own time zone, which is 30 minutes behind UTC -5 EST.
The word "Egan" comes from Egan Avenue, a street near the Republic.
Egan is a non-partisan environmentalist dynastic military dictatorship. It is led by General Aidan Bartlett.
The government is based on John Baker's regime in Madawaska as well as Tito's regime in Yugoslavia.
Egan is known for its environmentalist, socialist, and progressive stances. It is open to the LGBT+ community as well as gender and racial equality.
Egan has banned fossil fuels and disposable plastic items. Chain businesses are illegal in Egan and small businesses are run by syndicates.
Salaries are small, but everything is cheap.
Egan has some of the most strict gun laws in the world. All guns and gun factories are illegal even for police and military. The only guns citizens can carry are licensed Nerf guns.
Education and Healthcare are free in Egan, but it has no social welfare program.
Egan was founded on July 10th, 2017 by Aidan Bartlett, who was then elected Governor. On October 17th, 2017, Bartlett promoted himself to Viscount of Egan, and was later crowned Kaiser on Christmas Day of 2017.
The Eganese Socialist Revolution took place on January 20th, 2018, when disgruntled workers and natives of Egan's new colony formed a resistance movement against the Aristocracy. The Socialist Revolution succeeded, and Socialist Egan lasted three more months.
The Centrist Reformation took place in late April of 2018. The Governor dissolved Socialist Egan for personal reasons regarding his grandfather, who had endured hardships in Soviet Hungary.
The Archduchy was a short-lived monarchy lasting from June 14th to July 6th, 2018. Finally, Egan became a Banana Republic under Aidan Bartlett as military dictator.
