Broccotropolis, or the Broccotropolian Empire (Imperium Broccotropolian) (IB) is a micronation located in the eastern courtyard of a high school in Spain.
Broccotropolis is an absolute monarchy, currently ruled by Emperor Taui I. The state population rarely exceeds forty-six, and the living area is 600 sqm.
It was formerly a communist republic, but in Autumn of 2016 it became an empire.
Although not officially recognized by any country, the State asserts little recognition from the Canary Islands.
Much of the state's history is unknown. When exactly it was founded is a mystery, but we do know it was founded sometime 2014 by students led by César De la Presilla. The area which is now Broccotropolis was just a regular courtyard where students would hang out at recess. César and the others of his gang took it over and declared it their own country. César formed the Independent Republic of Broccotropolis (the name was chosen due to César's belief that broccoli helps the mind of a great leader, and also in honour of his idol, PewDiePie), set up his government, gathered his citizens and made himself President (even though Broccolist propaganda "claims" there was an election, and he won a majority vote. This is very likely false). He passed a law stating that all citizens (including himself) had to have the word "-ccoli" at the end of their first names (this was changed very soon after into just an optional formal title for everyone, like the Spanish "Don".). And so, HIS EXCELLENCY PRESIDENT CESARCCOLI of the Independent Republic of Broccotropolis ruled over his people.
For many months, all seemed well. The country was doing fine separated from Spain. But, in March 2015, President Cesarccoli abandoned his country due to falling in love with an illegal immigrant of the country, and ran away to be with her. With no head of state to rule the country, a political crisis occurred. Eventually democracy was utterly destroyed and a Civil War happened. One side was led by democratic Republicans, the other by Royalists. After months of conflict, General Jun, a Chinese member of the Broccotropolian Army, returned to the country after being on holiday in China. He managed to end the war and seize the throne. He declared a military dictatorship, with himself as Caudillo, or Leader of the IRB.
After a long time of ruling over the tiny nation with an iron fist, General Jun formally abdicated and established democracy. Elections were held on the 20th May 2015, with the Senator Tauiccoli becoming President (even though his victory was very controversial and sparked a lot of criticism due to the popular belief that he rigged the elections.
Ages later, the next elections came and the Lord of the Admiralty Aydanccoli won. His victory was very well received and was welcomed to the throne of Cesarccoli with open arms.
On the 12th November 2015, the Republic celebrated its first anniversary. There were lots of celebrations and fun things to do. The day is officially referred to as Broccotropolis Independence Day, but is also unofficially called Broccotropolis Day, National Day or Cesarccoli Day.
As a New Year announcement, President Aydanccoli confirmed that a new language would be spoken in Broccotropolis, to differenciate it from Spain entirely. This language, known as Brockish (broqués) was an old idea found inside the desk of the office of Broccotropolis' former dictator General Jun Guo. In honour of the nation's former great leader and God, the President revived the lost project. The Brockish language is a mixture of lots of different world languages (Spanish, Italian, Catalan, English, Esperanto, Arabic and Russian).
In the next elections, two new parties were formed: the Economic Party, which had a very good plan to solve the economy problem, and the Liberal Democrats, that wished to ban Spanish and make Brockish the official and only language in Broccotropolis. In the end, the election ended in a coalition: a pact between the Powerful Party (PP) and the Workers Party (PIOB).
After the fourth elections, the Republic was governed by Davidccoli of the Personal Liberty party. Since his victory, he has designed new passports for citizens and increased the size of the Government, but he has been received poorly, as he hasn't improved the crisis and protests are still occurring. There have even been monarchist demonstrations calling for the installation of a capitalist monarchy, with Jun's brother as King.
In autumn 2016, Davidccoli called for a referendum to decide if the people wished to reunify with Spain. The winning answer was NO.
Rise Of The Empire
In the fifth elections, the PP and Personal Liberty parties merged creating a new party with the aim of creating a Broccotropolian Empire, controlled by an absolute monarchy. This party was 'Together for Broccotropolis '.
Their opponents and the supporters of the Republic, Workers Party and Economic Party, faced Together For Broccotropolis in the elections.
The result was a tie: TFB and Economic Party both got 5 votes, leaving the Workers Party with only 3 votes. Broccotropolis was left without a President until the next election.
Not long after, they called for emergency elections to solve the problem of having no government.
They were won by Together For Broccotropolis, causing a lot of criticism and social protests. With the party's victory, Tauiccoli proclaimed the end of the Republic and the beginning of the first Broccotropolian Empire, proclaiming himself Emperor Taui I.
Geography And Climate
The inhabitable area is 600m². It includes a cafeteria, two old classrooms that are now used as sleeping quarters (there are two new classrooms that were built to replace these, in case you're worried), a chemistry lab and a library. The library is located in the capital of Las Escaleras.
Las Escaleras, although the capital, is tiny. It is made of a corner with some stairs that lead upstairs to the upper corridors, a gravel pit next to the stairs (where Cesarccoli's throne sits) and the library (where the government discuss managing the nation, and play chess). The reason why this area was chosen as capital was because it was Cesarccoli's old hangout place with his friends.
Summers are always very warm with a little bit of rainfall, so not very good with farming. During the winter, it tends to be quite cold, with the average temperature recorded by the Imperial government being 12 degrees.

- English Citizens: 20%

The Broccotropolian military is made up of 15 soldiers, two spies, and five Army scooters. It forces civilians to join the military if more military personnel is needed. The military is led by a Captain General, who reports to the Emperor of the Army's actions.
The current system of the country is that of absolute monarchy or monarchy by divine right.
The Head of State is the Emperor, whose power is granted by the God Jun. The Emperor is the symbol of the unity of the nation and the God's representative on Earth. He has unlimited power within the borders of the kingdom and assumes control over the legislative, executive and judiciary powers.
Although it is a completely different political system to the Republic's, it continues to incorporate many elements of the dictatorship of Generalissimo Jun. He is still the "God" of the country and his portrait appears in passports, and the military salute is HEIL JUN. But despite all this, Jun has no power in the government, and is simply a religious figure.
The current Emperor is Taui I, the first Emperor of his dynasty and Broccotropolis in general.
