What we are
Novus ordo seclorum. Astovia is the new order of the ages.The Astovian Empire (commonly referred to as the New Global Astovian Empire, Imperial Astovia, and Astovia), is a micronation that was originally conceived by their Emperor in inspiration from his friend Supreme Despot Ishaan of Nerland. Astovians are people of power and prosperity. Please note!! The Astovian Empire does not claim any of the territory other small LoMN states have claimed. Some claim Astovia is a disproportioned micronation. The Empire only has a somewhat legitimate claim in the words of the United Nations to the California, Hudson, Orange, Columbia, and New England Kingdoms.
Astovia is the succesor state of the Kingdom of the Arsh and the Federated Sates of America (F.S.A). (For more information on the Federated States of America and the Kingdom of the Arsh look below) The Emperor's right hand woman helped build up much of what the Empire is today. Head Grand Duchess Lila now serves as Chancellor, President of Senate, and Queen of Korea. Astovia officially declared it's independence when the King waged war on the United States of America, and their Independence Proclamation was signed. He and his army travelled around Somerset County, NJ, USA, and claimed all land they came across. The United States embarrassingly forgot to send any troops to defend. The Empire declared the war over after 3 days. For weeks the Emperor and his Council set up the government, debating on laws and legislature. In early January of 2018 Duke Eric of Nerland attempted to spark a conflict between the two nations. On many occasions he attempted to convince the heads of state that the other leader had sent them a message of war. As good friends, they knew Duke Eric was a liar. He is no longer a part of his old nation. Later in January Emperor William had sent an alliance request with the Aerican Empire. They kindly declined. On February 21, along with their third constitution's signing, the new Empire took a daring move. They claimed a large sum of land. This included lands in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. On March 16, 2018, Emperor William received a message from requesting the Empire join the League of Micronations. Sadly he didn't see this message until 4 days later. If it wasn't for Supreme Leader Ishaan of Nerland, the Empire wouldn't exist. Today, Imperial Astovia strives to be like the Aerican Empire. There are now 60 citizens. Emperor William wishes to pursue political ties to other micronations. After the 25th assembly of Grand Dukes and Duchesses, the nation took drastic measures of change. It abolished the former system of government. As of March 20, 2018, the Astovian Empire has been accepted into the League of Micronations. The Empire currently recognizes all UN states, Republic of China, and Holy See, with the exception of France, United Kingdom, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, Netherlands, Luxembourg, and Belgium. Astovia also recognizes all Micronational States. On April 18, 2018, the Chancellor of Astovia (Queen Lila of Korea) and the Grand Army General (King Micheal G. of Canada) admitted to treason, as they had been colluding since early March. The Emperor called his powers into play and declared a state of emergency throughout the entire empire. The colluding forces leaders' powers were temporarily suspended. Queen Lila claimed to General Michael that she had the legal authority to take control of the Grand Army, which she clearly did not, and sadly the General gave up his power in favor of creating the New Astovian Order. Shortly before the flight of Project I.C.A.R.U.S., a secret meeting took place between King Valart, King Michael B., and the Emperor himself. In a decision that had nothing to do with internal corruption, both of the rebellious leaders decided to give up a few cookies to take back the emperor's trust. Currently they face no charges of high treason. This event became known as the Royal Coup. Shortly after this event, the former Queen of California, Queen Tianna, along with two American associates, made an act of war. Two minutes later the Emperor consulted the Chancellor. Together they made the decision to strike back. The Confederate Kingdom of Astovia invaded the Holy Lunch Table, and after three days of war, the Confederates withdrew and Tianna was taken to Astovian High Court.
- Drafting of the New Astovian Constitution
- Reforming of Astovia
The first two constitutions for the Empire have been sadly lost. Luckily, the third constitution has been preserved.
As Astovian citizens, to promote a more perfect Empire, establish Justice, provide common defense, promote general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do accept and establish this constitution for the New Global Empire of Astovia
A senate is to be established with one representative or senator from each province. The king/queen of each region stands as their senator. Each senator has a vote worth 1/x of the senate in totality (‘x’ representing the number of provinces; currently 22). The president of senate, voted for by the senate will have a vote worth 2/x. The president of senate, has one vote for their province, and one extra vote. A senator must be over legal age, unless accepted by the emperor. If a senator is found guilty of a crime, the court may hear his case. Any one person inside of senate found guilty of treason, murder, or felony, shall be suspended from their services only after speaking with the Emperor. After this they may be imprisoned or punished in other ways for their crimes. They will be banished from senate. Every bill or act approved by senate will then go to the Emperor, for decision. The Emperor may suggest bills to be enacted to the senate, which does not have to be then sent to the emperor if approved. No state shall enter into any alliance, treaty, or confederation outside of the Empire. If done, the heads of the province will be taken to Imperial court with at least the case of high treason. No province shall issue any form of currency other than the Astovian Valone. Amendments shall be passed as the same way laws are. Senate shall act as the highest court in the land. Laws shall be accepted only after a ⅔ vote.
The Supreme branch of Astovia shall consist of the emperor, and chancellor, appointed by his or her royal highness. The Emperor has the power to declare war, claim territory, create alliances, suspend any king/queen from their duty, only after consulting with the chancellor. Each year the Emperor and Chancellor must give a state of the union, stating the problems we must face, our goals we must achieve, and our achievements.
There shall be many departments, or sectors, that handle different issues. The Department of Defense, like others, will work with the Chancellor and Emperor, and give them updates on all matter. If a sector is found to be not needed, it may be dissolved at the hands of the chancellor. If a sector is found to be working in collaboration with an outside enemy government, the sector is to be immediately abolished and it to be rebuilt from the group up with completely new people, unless made otherwise by the Emperor. Sectors may work together by choice, or by need made example in the case of the Sector of Resources and the Sector of Treasury. Sectors may include
Astovia will use the metric system. The Empire shall also adopt standard time.The time zones for each province shall be the following: Britannia, France, Iberia ~ UTC| Holland, Germany, Italia, Yugoslavia ~ UTC+1| Korea ~ UTC+9| China ~ UTC+8| Australia ~ UTC+9| Mexico ~ UTC-7| California ~ UTC-8| Texas to the east of the New Mexico County shall be UTC-6| Texan County of Baja California ~ UTC-8| West Mississippi ~ UTC-6| East Mississippi ~ UTC-5.5| All provinces with a main Atlantic Coast ~ UTC-5| Canada ~ UTC-5.
All provinces are to be equal in all fields. Citizens can roam freely throughout the Empire, throughout different provinces. They can have their own provincial laws, but the Imperial law is supreme over all others in Astovia. Murder, theft, felony, treason, plotted/attempted murder/assault, assault, enemy collaboration, and damaging of property are not tolerated.
To be a peaceful nation, we need laws our citizens must obey. The most high offenses are murder, treason, attempted murder, and pouring milk before the cereal.
With the acception of this document into Astovia, their Empire be reborn, their people be blessed with liberty and prosperity, and their image be redrawn.
Right to Speak your mind, even if others are 'triggered.' Rights to all non radical religions, to press, to assembly, and to petition.
Right to bear arms of matic weapons
No murder of any human or living being that has the potential to become a human.
Rights to privacy.
Astovia is a Constitutional Imperial Monarchy. Hopefully it really exists and their Emperor didn't just make that up. There are three sections of legislature. Supreme, Senate, and Sectors. Together they form the three 'S's of the Empire. The Supreme Branch houses the Emperor and the Chancellor. The role of monarch is obviously passed down throughout the children of the Emperor. First born becomes the Emperor; can be male or female. The Senate Branch houses the Senate (A.K.A. the Royal assembly). The Branch of Sectors functions as a branch dedicated to departments such as the Sector of Investigation, which is an Astovian equivalent to the Central Intelligence Agency.
