Ecruvia, officially the Republic of Ecruvia, is a micronation which was created in in 2007. It is a constitutionally based democratic republic under the leadership of Nosredneh Kram, the Grand Patriarch. The main languages are English and Esperanto; however, the Cabinet of Culture has been officially directed to look into developing a unique Ecruvian language. Ecruvia maintains a social presence.


Ecruvia was formed by Mark Henderson in 2007 after he discovered several existing micronations on the internet. He remembered creating fictional nation states as a hobby. As a young child, Mark and his friend David would play a simplified war game using only notebook paper and pencils. In order to make the game more realistic, they both created fictional countries. Mark printed the letters of America in reverse to create the Republic of Acirema. Both David and Mark created respective flags and maps to these notional nations along with uniforms, equipment, and ranks.

Constitutional Court

Ecruvia is a constitutional democratic republic led by an elected president and legislated by a bicameral parliament. Ecruvian laws are upheld by the Constitutional Court, which is the highest court of the republic. The [Ecruvian Constitution] is the main source of Ecruvian jurisprudence. The constitution is a living legal document which can be amended by proper procedure when society demands evolutionary change. Constitutional Court Justices are obliged to follow the common law concept of applying precedent-based law in deciding all cases. Secondary law originates from parliamentary legislation and administrative cabinet level law. There are currently seven cabinets of the government: Cabinet of Information, Cabinet of Tourism; Cabinet of State; Cabinet of Culture; Cabinet of Foreign Affairs; Cabinet of Means; and Cabinet of Defense.
