On the 13th Novemeber 2013, Dastran's rulers, strongly aligned to the leaders of the Azkent Pact, applied for Azkent Pact membership. This application was however declined, as Supreme Commander of the Azkent Pact, Oleksandr Mendeleev, did not see Dastran as a real micronation.
In Albek, a language completely constructed by Aleksandr Babayev and Igor Mohakmedov, ''''Das means people, and ''''Ran means great (T is a letter commonly used to link two words together). Dastran's leaders combined the two words into dastran, meaning 'great people'. Dastran also means 'mother', though only in certain contexts.
Dastran was founded on the 10th November, 2013, by Steve Addison, a friend of Vladimir Handovic. He had not participated in micronationalism prior to the foundations of Dastran, but his friends, who were keen micronationalists, informed him on the subject. He set up Dastran on 10/11/13, and asked leaders of the Azkent Pact to aid him in running the nation. This is why Dastran is classed as a puppet state; foreign leaders have a large degree of control over the administration of the nation.
