The Principality of Monovia, often incorrectly referred to as "Monovia" is a self-governing territory of the micronation known as Monovia. A feature unusual among nations, Monovia is not a nation-state, rather the nation and the state are separated entities. This was not intentional; the Principality has very little actual control over Monovish territory (due to the tribal system of governance) and as a result over time the government has become less and less associated with the nation.
Monovia has existed as a formal nation in various forms since April 2011; however, the long Kaestrovian conflict (which lasted up until September of 2011) decimated Monovia, and left it's government unstable and corrupt. Although improvements have since been made, in order to successfully create an effective national government, Monovia has a tribal system of governance, which severely hinders the legislative process, meaning that it can take months to pass legislation, and even passed legislation is seldom enacted pragmatically.
Monovia has four recognized tribes; the Passapari, Gallic, Juju and Stalagmite peoples. The Jujus have dominated Monovia's cultural and political landscape since Monovia's foundation as a micronation, and they continue to hold a monopoly on the political system (although their overall influence has waned). The Religious demographics of Monovia is also based on tribal lines, the Gallic people follow the religion of Roman Catholicism, the Passaparis follow the Anglican church, and the the Jujus are shamanistic.
