TerritoryThe Kingdom of Praugsia does claim a very small ammount of land. It claims only one bedroom. Praugsia is divided into two provinces. These are Compeauxdia and Gambichipsia. Below is a crude map of the kingdom:
Is the largest of Praugsia's two provinces. Compeauxdia is considered the "capital," although Praugsia is currently too small to have an actual capital. It is the western province
Is the smallest of the two provinces. Gambichipsia is where the Praugsian Declaration of Independence was written. It is the eastern province.
The Praugsian government is an absolute monarchy, ruled by a king. The king holds all power of government, and can make and destroy laws at any time, as he pleases. Though Praugsia is an absolute monarchy, citizens are guaranteed basic human rights and fair laws.
Every Praugsian citizen is required to serve in the military. The only military branch in Praugsia is the army. The small Praugsian military posses no lethal weapons, but has several airsoft guns.
As of now, anyone displaying flu symptoms is forbidden to enter Praugsia. This is a precaution to avoid infecting the kingdom with swine flu.
Praugsia has only one official citizen, who is also its king. His name is Paul Compeaux. Praugsia plans to expand in the future and acquire more citizens.
The Praugsian flag has three horizontal stripes. The top stripe is red, the center stripe is yellow, and the bottom stripe is red.
CurrencyPraugsia's currency is the kiffla. A kiffla is simply an index card with a number representing the amount of money on it, and the king's signature. The reason for this is because Praugsia currently lacks the equipment to produce actual coins and bills. These kifflas can be used to purchase things in Praugsia, but have hardly any value in the U.S. Praugsia's kifflas are backed by silver bullion coins minted in the United States.
