The Independent Republic Of Broccotropolis was a communist micronation that existed from 2014 to 2016. It was a Marxist-Leninist republic that gained independence from Spain in November 2014, and became a democracy in May 2015. The Republic ended in October 2016 after a rigged election, becoming the Broccotropolian Empire.
It was founded in November 2014 by students led by Cesar De la Presilla. The area which is now Broccotropolis was just a regular courtyard where students would hang out at recess. Cesar and the others of his gang took it over and declared it their own country. Cesar formed the Independent Republic of Broccotropolis (the name was chosen due to Cesar'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. 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 Guo returned to the country after being on holiday in China. He joined the war and seized the throne. He declared a military dictatorship, with himself as Caudillo, or Leader of Broccotropolis.
Dictatorship of General Jun
From the end of the war, Jun established a cult of personality in Broccotropolis, leading an almost Stalinist regime. He was supported by the army and by the Senate. Strangely, the people did not feel oppressed by the Caudillo, and today there are many who preferred the regime to the future democratic restoration.
After a long time ruling over the small nation with an iron hand, General Jun abdicated and reestablished democracy. The elections were held on May 20, 2015, with Senator Tauiccoli becoming President (although his victory was very controversial and provoked much criticism).
Later came the second election and won the Lord of the Admiralty, Aydanccoli. His victory was very well received and was received on the throne of Cesarccoli with open arms.
On November 12, 2015, the Republic celebrated its first anniversary. There were lots of celebrations and fun things to do. The day is officially known as' Broccotropolis Independence Day, but also unofficially called Broccotropolis Day, National Day or Cesarccoli Day.
As a New Year's announcement, President Aydanccoli confirmed that a new language would be spoken in Broccotropolis, to differentiate it from Spain completely. This language, known as Brockish, was an old idea that was found inside the office of the former dictator of Broccotropolis, General Jun. In honor of the former great leader of the nation and God, the President revived the lost project. The language is a mixture of a lot of different languages of the world (Spanish, Italian, Catalan, English, Esperanto and Russian).
The Great Crisis
In the third elections, two new parties were formed: the Economic Party, which had a good plan to solve the economic problem, and theLiberal Democrats), Who wanted to ban Spanish and make Brockish the only and official language of Broccotropolis. In the end, the elections ended in a coalition: a pact between the Powerful Party (PP) and the Labor Party (PIOB).
With the return to power of President Tauiccoli, factories were opened, there were more jobs and everything went well with the support of Aydanccoli as Chancellor. But shortly after, the President decided to promote tourism and opened the country to foreign visitors and, for the first time in history, allowed citizens to travel freely to other countries. This single decision led to a devastating economic crisis that led to the closure of factories, the biggest increase of illegal immigration in the history of Broccotropolis and a famine (because more than half of the population left and never returned).
The Chancellor and former President, Aydanccoli, resigned from leading the PIOB; Declaring that his successor would be chosen by the party in a kind of mini-elections. Judge Jaimeccoli, who would participate in the following general elections, won.
In the fourth elections, all the candidates of the last elections participated because of their excellent results, except Aydanccoli, who named Jaimeccoli as his successor and new leader of the PIOB party. They were the first elections in which all the parties of the last elections participated.
The winner of the election was Davidccoli of Liberal Democrats. He won without an absolute majority, and formed a pact with the Powerful Party to rule. His victory was very much applauded and was called by many "the finisher of corruption". After the defeat of Jaimeccoli (which was the worse result of the history of the PIOB), he gave back the position of leader of the PIOB Labor Party to Aydanccoli; Jaime returned to be Supreme Judge.
In April 2016, President Davidccoli gave the order to renew the passports of all citizens. The new style (blue, and with a note of the ex- dictator Jun) replaced the old one of the presidency of Cesarccoli (white and with the rules of the country, that were removed from the new version due to great changes in the system).
In May 2016, after the President's controversial statement that he was against Jun being God, and that he did not believe in the State religion, many pro-Junist citizens gathered and expressed their desire to overthrow the Republic and start a monarchy headed by the younger brother of Jun, Hong.
There were many protests and demands for the President to resign. The national newspaper "The Weekly Branch" said that a Second Civil War was very possible: a war between believers of Junism and non-believers.
Because of this, President Daviccoli changed his party's name to Personal Liberty.
Referendum for reunification with Spain
In September 2016, after the endless dissatisfaction of the Broccotropolian people, President Davidccoli and the party Personal Liberty decided to do a referendum. The subject:
Do you want Broccotropolis to reunite with Spain? If so, do you want everything related to Broccotropolis to cease to exist completely?
Many citizens wanted to remain a free and independent country, but others were fed up with what they called small size and unstable government. This left politicians like former Presidents Tauiccoli and Aydanccoli very frightened, fearing to lose their power.
In the end, the NO option won, but not with an absolute majority. The YES / NO option (which wanted Broccotropolis to become an autonomous community in Spain) almost won with only a couple of votes less than the NO option.
The Last Elections and The Empire
In the fifth elections, the PP and Personal Liberty parties united to create a new party with the aim of creating a Broccotropolitan Empire, controlled by an absolute monarchy. This party was Together For Broccotropolis.
The defenders of the Republic, PIOB and Economic Party, ran against Together For Broccotropolis in the elections.
The result was a draw: TFB and the Economic Party finished with 5 votes, leaving the PIOB with only 3 votes. Davidccoli remained President-in-Office during the search for a solution.
Shortly after, the sixth elections were made, which were a repetition of the previous ones to try to solve the problem of the tie of Together By Broccotropolis and the Economic Party.
They were won by Together By Broccotropolis, causing huge criticism and social protests. With the victory of the party, Tauiccoli proclaimed the end of the Republic, and the beginning of the Broccotropolitan Empire, and proclaimed himself Emperor Taui I.
Geography and climate
The capital of the Republic was Escalum, although its biggest city was New Segovia.
Broccotropolis had Spanish and Brockish, a language invented by General Jun, as it's main languages.
The official religion of the Republic was Junism, in which the God and Creator of all life on Earth is the old dictator Jun.
