The Federal Republican Dictatorship of Agni, commonly shortened as Agni, is a micronation that was formed on the 21st of December 2013. The Federal Republican Dictatorship is a successor to the monarchy, though the country is literally the same as before, just with a new government and altered leaders. The country is a democracy, and has it's officials serve for life, which is where the "dictatorship" is represented.
The term Agni derives from the Sanskrit word for Fire. As Sanskrit is a philosophical language for Hinduism, which both founders of this country fall under, it seemed appropriate to name the country in this language.
Origin After political talks between former regional leaders, it was concluded that the current state of the government was very unorganized and a clean slate would need to be started. Therefore the government officially transitioned into The Federal Republic Dictatorship of Agni, and went under major ratification in order to become more simplified and organized. Agni of course is the same country, just with a new government. It's previous page, Agni, will exist as a historic reminder of the monarchy (both constitutional, and absolute) and the diarchy, and the countries original roots and history.
The October Conference
Former monarchs, now President and Prime Minister, Jeremy and Dylan met together in early October in order to discuss the political happenings and things existing within Agni. This was the first political conference between the now Head of State/Government and Head of Foreign Affairs, and it proved to a very productive one as well. New laws and concepts were proposed during this, including the majority of new Agnian laws and regulations. This conference also marked the beginning of statehood for former breakaway country, Meepland, and saw a more proper separation of powers be created.It was also proposed that a bi-monthly conference occur between the Prime Minister and President, but this idea was not successfully instituted.
The December Celebration
While nothing officially was recognized or signed into action, there was an effective celebration on Christmas day which featured a majority of the population, as well as nearly all government officials. The celebration was recognized as a normal Christmas Day celebration by citizens, but it was actually a celebration for Independence Day, which had occurred on 12/21/14. Independence Day celebrated the independence from the Bruagnian union in December of 2013.
The Regency of Clemeten
Recently, the governor-senator of the state of Clementen, recently departed Agni. The federal government of Agni did not bother searching for him, and he is believed to be dead (due to his old age). Prime Minister Dylan appointed a regent governor-senator to see to the state's affairs. This was no human, but instead the mother of the cat population in the state. Clemeten is officially categorized as "abandoned, by humans", but it does house a number of alley cats. If a congressional vote is ever needed in the future, a real human will be appointed before the vote is to begin (around 7 days in advance).

It was discovered and favored incredible amounts of freedom to the working class and believed that nothing has value unless you put work into earning it. However, the party was dissolved upon the fleeing of the parties' leaders and members from Agni.

Geography & Climate
Agni, being located within a typical North American, east coast location, experiences multiple seasons, Autumn, Winter, Spring, and Summer. Normally, all agricultural activity minimizes towards later Autumn and decreases entirely during Winter, but booms during Spring and Summer.
Most of Agnian land is flat, arable, land that is populated by decidious and coniferous trees.
The economy of Agni was formerly a command economy up until late December, 2014. Following Prime Minister Dylan's signing of the first Executive Order, 11227, the economy shifted into a free barter economy with little government intervention. The government however reserved the right to collect taxes and reap benefits off of resources that are being bartered, as well as the ability to confiscate said resources with definite reason. Many items bartered have started to gain significant value in the economy, these items include small chocolates, which retain the most value, markers, paper, and wood also maintain significant value as well.
Agni had one federal bank, that has operated prior to the times of the monarchy. It used to contain basic coins that were highly desired among traders, which is how it ascended into the Agnian Plas. With recent political shifts, the federal bank became obsolete and no longer needed, and now serves as a capsule containing historic pieces of Agnian history. The Agnian Plas was the most used currency form, and their was a permanent number of Plas in circulation, that number remains unknown at this point.
A lot of the culture derives from Indian Culture and often involves many common Indian traditions and activities. A common pass time of the people is too browse the internet, or to draw. Agnian politicians often find themselves playing strategy simulation games such as Europa Universalis IV, Crusader Kings II, Democracy 3, and the Civilization series.
Agnian Culture has significantly been influenced by American culture, which itself is just a collection of vast cultures compiled under one name. But Agnian Culture selectively has gained influenced from Irish-American, Scottish-American, and Indian-Trinidadian culture.
