The Constitutional Monarchy of Scoussia is a micronation based in Las Vegas, Nevada. Its goal is to provide an uncorrupted government to all.
The colorful history of Scoussia has several different parts.
Communist Dictatorship of Aaronlovania
The first known version of Scoussia was formed on June 30, 2009 by Aaron when he was 12, formally known then as the Communist Dictatorship of Aaronlovania (CDA). This country's territory consiting of a quarter of his house and its main industry being mining rocks. The CDA became very prosperous. However, this prosperity came to an end when the neighbors began to invade, resulting in the Neighborhood War of 2009. Dictator Aaron Morton fell and resigned his territory back to America. This nation only lasted a week from June 30 to July 6, 2009.
Fall of the Old and the Rise of the New
After the official dismantling of the CDA on July 10, 2009 with the retirement of the flag Aaron Morton sought to create the CDA again, but never got to it due to the fact that he was busy doing other things. So thus the CDA was lost in time.
It wouldn't be until the March of 2012 when Aaron was 15 that the idea of forming a nation came back to him. Aaron had heard of a nation called the Principality of Sealand , a country that intrigued him. He learned it was part of a group of nations known as micronations. Aaron, still curious, continued to research about micronations. It wasn't until he found out about the Republic of Molossia that he wanted to form his own nation.
Inspired, he went on began the adventure of starting his new nation.
Constitutional Monarchy of Scoussia
Aaron went on to form his new nation. He started by getting a couple of his friends to join in. It was then he created the country's first name "The Constitutional Monarchy of Aarjesswal". But that name was argued upon between Aaron, Jesse and Walter, so the name was put down till later. So they continued to form the country it was then set up that Aaron Morton would become King, Jesse Thornock would be come the Keeper (power like the president) and Walter Kwong would become the Diplomat. The name was also officially created on April 20, 2012 and was "The Constitutional Monarchy of Scoussia". It wasn't until May 3, 2012 that the country gained sovereignty.
War with Freya
This action caused much critcism from both sides. Scoussia and Wyhzette (although Wyhzette is the one who agreed, and had the power not to) claiming that the treaty created between Freya and Wyhzette was unfair and wrong, leading to the main cause of the war. Freya also claiming Scoussia to be a "dictatorship" because they didn't hold trials to join the war not.
The September Revolution
Starting September 11th, 2012 a communist revolution started. The revolution went on from th 11th to the 14th.The Revolution sucessfuly defeated the Army and Royal Guard. It was thanks to the loyalist militia who marched to the palace yelling "Viva La Scoussia!" led by Samuel Vaughn that eneded the revolution and restored peace to Scoussia.
The revolutionary leader was exiled, and the rest of the revoltuionaries were put on trial.
All though the September Revolt was unsuccessful, it was successful in stirring up doubt in the king's own government. After the king reveiwed the constitution he deemed it the most corruptible piece of writing in history and began asking to rewrite to the other two heads. After asking several times they kept saying no. It finally came to the point that the king started a revolution. The revolution began January 13th 2014. Then after 5 days of fighting at 5:08 PM January 18th 2014 Scoussia surrendered. At midnight of the same the national government was replaced by the Free State of Scoussia.
The Goverment is a Constitutional Monarchy, but the country is run by the Three Government Heads. The Monarch, the Keeper and the Diplomat. All three of these tie into each other so much so that corruption is prevented.
The Monarch is to be the figure head of the Constitutional Monarchy of Scoussia. The Monarch is to sign laws that have been passed by the keeper and the people. The Monarch is to keep the CMS as neutral as possible. The Monarch is to help the diplomat as much as possible. The Monarch is to overlook what the Keeper of the Constitution does. The Monarch is to make sure the Keeper of the Constitution is just and upright. The office of Monarch is also heriditary. The power is passed on to the closest male heir (usually, the son).
The title in it's current form is His Sire King (Current Monarch's Name) Of Scoussia and her dominions.
The official name for this office is the Keeper of the Constitution. The Keeper is to be the main head and leader of the Constitutional Monarchy of Scoussia. The Keeper is to protect the constitution its rights and laws. The Keeper is to propose new laws that well be voted for by the people. He also is to send the Diplomat on missions. In addition, he is to overlook the monarch. The office of Keeper is voted upon.
The Diplomat is to be the nation’s representative at international conferences and events along with the Monarch (if the Monarch chooses to). The Diplomat is to go on diplomatic missions whenever the Monarch or Keeper desire. He also is to settle relations with this nation and other nations. The office of Diplomat is elected for as well.
The Constitutional Monarchy of Scoussia has accepted a philosophy similar to Switzerland. This means that Scoussia will try to keep neutrality in all conflicts as much as possible. The Scoussians also take major value in education and teamwork. Along with this, the CMS tries to be a Liberatarian country.

The CMS also supports major funding and reasearch in space exploration and coloniazation in hopes that humanity can reach the stars. This is shown by the organization of the Scoussian Space Corp.

The CMS is also a major supporter in the Olympics and has goals of one day participating in it.

Scoussia's currency is known as the Libret (SL) with a fixed exchange rate of 1 USD for 1/2 SL and is the only currency in the world to use nothing but paper and use matrix codes. The libret is also one of the only currencies to use fractions. This means that the unlike most country's that use decimals, the scoussians use fractions. For example, one libret and thirty two wouldn't be referred to as 1.32SL, 1 32/100 nor one libret thirty two, it would be called one and thirty two hundredths librets.
The Scoussian military has been organized into three parts. The Scoussian National Army, The Scoussian National Navy and Scoussian Royal Gaurd. Each is assigned with three primary goals.
The Scoussian National Army (abb: SNA) is the primary land based military. It's motto being "Honorem, Rex et Patria" (For Honor, King and Country). The organization of the Army is complex starting with 5 main promotion levels with 3 in each. The three primary goals are as follow:
- Defend the motherland by land
- Fight all land battles
- Defend people threatened
The Scoussian National Navy, abriviated SNN, is the primary sea based military. It's motto being "Ex Mare, Verum" (From the Sea, Truth). Naval promotional organization is similar to the Army in most ways. The three primary goals are as follow:
- Defend the Motherland by sea
- Fight all sea battles
- Defend civilian ships
Very few people are allowed in the royal gaurd. If you are accepted then it is because you have shown expertise military strength and loyalty. There are only three promotions. They are, in order of lowest to highest: Royal Gaurd, Royal Platoon captain, Captain of the Royal Guard. There is a limit of only one thousand allowed in the Royal Gaurd. The three priamry goals are:
- Protect the Royal family and Keeper.
- Protect all Scoussian civilians when threatened
- Army backup
Although Scoussians do believe in having as few allies as possible, it considers the allies it has as priceless.
