The Imperial Empire of Lewsanla was founded on April 24th, 2014..
(Lou-Saan-La)Lewsanla's name originated from the cultural adviser of Martin I , of the Rajagupta Dynasty, who had intentions of forming an individualized micronation, but instead sought guidance from Martin I.
After realization of political tensions, close friends of Martin I joined forces in order to form a micronation. With Martin I's guidance, the nation of Lewsanla was developed with long-term temporary land on the east coast of the US. On April 24th 2014, at an undisclosed time between 2:00pm-2:38pm EST the nation declared independence from the United States.
The Fascist Communist Republic Election Era
On June 2, a revolution of sorts occurred, which would transition the Lewsanlan Empire into a Republic. Following King Juan Carlos's abdication, Martin I abdicated his Lewsanlan throne, prompting the military adviser to start a coup and seize the government, establishing a Communist Fascist government. Martin I did not like this idea, so after discussing with his Cultural adviser, he declared he had never ratified the abdication and will remain in power.
But this was not yet over, the next day, the talks of a simplified Republic were higher then ever before. It was declared by Martin I that the time for the Lewsanlan Republic was here, and that the elections would be held this week. The two political parties running as of 6/4/14 were the Communist Republican Party and the Communistic Fascist Nationalist Party.
The Republic Era
On 6/9/14 the first Lewsanlan elections finished up, with the Communistic Fascist Nationalist Party leading in votes by four, while the Communist Republican Party had two.
President Preston would be sworn in on 6/10/14.
Political Turmoil and Collapse Era
After President Preston was sworn in, a former adviser to the monarch, Martin I, attempted to arouse political turmoil by accusing Martin I of instigating a new government in the country. This adviser was known as Logan of Silinus. He was a former duke and was the leader of the most autonomous province in all of Lewsanla, Silinus. Logan of Silinus promised Martin I that Silinus would be a great and bountiful country, as long as it was seperated from Lewsanla.
President Preston discovered this, and ordered immediate condemning of these actions. Alas, poor President Preston did not know who to trust, as Martin I and Logan of Silinus had erupted into confrontation. Praised voters started siding with the former candidates, and President Preston pratically was facing a situation similiar to the War of the Roses . Martin I was exiled, only to be allowed back into the country's borders as a political adviser the following day. The following days after this intense turmoil is considered the collapse of Lewsanla; The majority of citizens left the country, returning back to America, only to stay an American citizen. There was no government to lead the people, or at least a stable one. The remaining government is considered an unstable communist dictatorship.
Government & Politics
Old Government Lewsanla is an Imperialistic Empire in which an emperor has advisers whom specialized in the following categories: Science, Culture, Diplomatic, and Economic. The leader is chosen through a hereditary line; if the current emperor has an heir, and the emperor dies, then that heir (assuming they are of age) will become the ruler. If there is no heir present, then one of the two noble families will ascend to power. Martin I's closed friends have decided that whomever has the oldest heir present, will rule, if Martin I has no apparent heir.
The first Military and Cultural advisers are considered Lewsanlan nobles, if Martin I, of Agni has no apparent heir and dies, they will see who has the oldest heir and then decide who will rule after Martin I.
In time it is expected that a legislature of parliament will arise when their is actually a sufficient population.
Nearly every week, the The Cultural and Military advisers hold assemblies with the Emperor discussing changes around the kingdom.
Sucessor to the Empire
A Communistic Fascist Nationalist Simplified republic was installed after the conclusion of the first Lewsanlan elections. This government was deemed unstabled and led to what Martin I consideres the Lewsanlan Dictatorship. President Preston was the first president of this government.
