Andany

Andany (/ˈændəni/ AND-ə-nee), more commonly known as the Principality of Andany, is a democratic semi-crowned principality composed of three states, a federal district, and three territories. Andany is mainly located on the island of Sardinia with three embassies, located in Nevada, another located in Canada, and finally one in the People's Republic of Kaion. The nation was founded on 25 July 2017 and is surrounded by the Province of Olbia-Tempio in Italy. Andany is also considered a micronation by external observers, with citizens believing it to be an un-macronationally recognized microstate. It has a surface area of 2.641788 km² (664.64 acres) and a population of 16 full citizens, of whom all are territorial residents except two. It is solely based on a democratic capitalist ideology and educational system. The Principality's form of government is a democratic semi-crowned republic with an assemblaic system, defined by the Principality's constitution, the National Assembly. The current Prince of Andany is Prince Pablo Ailani Macías, who has ruled Andany since it was founded on 25 July 2017. Also, the current Prime Minister of Andany is Syrus B. Andany's official capital is the District of Floriano. Other cities include Ginepro and Menditsa. The Principality consists of three states, and three territories. The Principality's total size has increased throughout its history, starting out with 0.015 km² as the District of Floriano in Andany when it was first founded in 2017. The majority of the Principality's area comes from the Sardinian coastline, a territory which covers a large coastal area. The Principality's current surface area is at 2.641788 km² (664.64 acres). With all its territory surrounded by Italy. French, Spanish, and Italian are the native languages of most Andanian citizens, and this is reflected in the fact that Etruscan and Spanish are the Principality's official languages.

Andany has a small services-based economy and the government's main source of income is through contributions from citizens, also known as voluntary taxation. Intermicronationally, Andany has had numerous periods of heightened influence in many places, with Prince Pablo Macias serving as Chair of the Federated Union of Micronations in 2017, of which Andany was a former member state. Under the Economic Potential Index, it has a score of 4.2, and under Linden's Revised System it scores 4.2. Andany is a democratic and developed country with an advanced high-income economy, a high quality of life, and a very high standard of living. A founding member of the United Micropact, Andany has been the founder of many other organizations, such as the Intercontinental Union. Andany's unique cultural heritage, tourism industry, prominent shipping sector and geostrategic importance classify it as a middle power, according to the Andanian Census Bereau. It is so far the largest economy in the Italian micronations according ot the Nueva Ventura Stock Exchange, where it is an important regional investor. Andany can unofficially rank among the highest micronations in several measures of socioeconomic performance, including average wage, human development, per capita GDP, and productivity per person. Andany is a Security Council member of the Intercontinental Union as of the founding of the IU.

Etymology

In March 2017, Pablo Macias, the then-to-be Prince of Andany, founded the Republic of Coral Rock. It was later disestablished due to inactivity. In the coming months, Pablo Macias scoured to find a new micronation. After buying the current Andanian Territory, the future 33 National Assembly members voted on a name for the almost-founded country. The street the Prince lived on was then called "Avenida Andany". If a Prince is voted [unanimously] in, then it would be a sovereign Principality. The name State of Celestine was because celestial bodies were easily visible from Andany. The name Principality of Andany won with a two-thirds majority compared with one-third to the State of Celestine. The Prince of Andany (Pablo Macias) was voted in by the National Assembly and by the people with no objections. The short form "Andany" is also a standard. A citizen of the Principality of Andany is an "Andanian".

History

Indigenous peoples

The Principality of Andany is located on the Italian island of Sardinia, which embodies a lot of history. Much of the island’s arable land is devoted to cereal cultivation and fruit growing. Macchia - grasslands mingled with a scrub of cistus, lentisk, myrtle, prickly pear, and dwarf oaks—covers most of the uncultivated countryside. A rich salt-loving vegetation is found along the shores and cliffs, and salty marshes extend along the coast. Most of the mammals are like those found in Italy, but some of those deserving special mention are a Sardinian weasel, a native wild cat, the mouflon (a wild sheep found only in Sardinia, Corsica, and Cyprus), and the Cape hare. The dominating feature of the island (some 7,000 examples of which are said to exist) is the nuraghi: truncated conic structures of huge blocks of basalt taken from extinct volcanoes, built in prehistoric times without any bonding. Most nuraghi are quite small, but a few are obviously fortresses. There is also a nuraghic village near Dorgali with traces of about 80 buildings identified. Expert opinion now dates the nuraghi to about 1500 to 400 BCE.

The civilization that built the nuraghi probably had its roots in the prehistoric population of the island, but its origins and affinities are uncertain, and it left no written records. Mant archaeological sites have been fully discovered in Sardinia. Examples include the Torre Di Longosardo, Coddu Vecchiu, and the Nuraghe la Prisgiona. Tt is possible, though that the Sherden, one of the Sea People who fought in Egypt in the 13th and 12th centuries BCE, either came from, or settled in Sardinia, and they gave the island its name. Archaeological evidence from the Nuraghi culture suggests a strongly organized power of tribal states. The working of metal from local mines was presumably the chief source of wealth. However, the presence of Phoenician trade settlements along the Sardinian coasts from the 9th or 8th century BCE must have vigorously contributed to Sardinian prosperity. In the centuries that followed, Sardinia often fell prey to passing pirates and marauders, owing to its strategic position in the middle of the Mediterranean sea.  It is no wonder therefore that most of the main Sardinian cities are inland, wary as Sardinians were of the dangers that came from the sea. These raids in fact continued right up to recent times, as some of the older folk used to describe. On the Costa Smeralda, for example, the natural caves at Liscia di Vacca were used as hiding places from the pirates by the Orecchioni family, just at the turn of the century. The highest local peak, Monte Moro, is so called because it provided a useful look-out against the Moors. Monte Canaglia (Rascal Hill), is the name given to the place where the scoundrels settled down and you can find traces in some local surnames, like Ragnedda,  "wicked like a spider" or in place names, Lu Saraghinu "the Saracen", La Petra di li Tulchi, the rock where the Turks set ashore.

There is still memory in present day families of not too distant events, like the mother who left her child on the beach to play, while she collected berries close by. When she returned, she found the Saracens sailing off with her child and  in grief lost all reason. She became known as "La scasciata d'Agnula Maria", Mad Angle Maria. The Casalloni family that today resides in nearby San Pantaleo, narrowly escaped a bitter fate for their two small children, Stephen and Luke, who fortunately were not in their house but under a nearby olive tree, when it was ravaged by the Moors. In thanksgiving they made a donation to the church of an 18th century flag. It is curious to note a further indication of the natural fear of invaders from the sea, that on the coast, the old Sardinian cottages never have a sea view as they were always built in positions where they couldn't be seen from the sea. Moreover, Sardinians completely lack a fishing tradition and the few fishermen on the island are all migrants, or their descendants, from the Pontine Islands, close to the mainland. It is an ironic quirk of fate, that today the recent economic prosperity of Sardinia has actually come from the sea, from an invasion of many summer tourists. This has also led to many intermarriages, with mainland Italians, Germans, Swiss, English, French, Scandinavian and even with Australians. Andany wouldn't be founded until many years later, when Sardinia colonized immensely and became civilized greatly.

Independence and expansion

At 8:30 AST on 25 July 2017, Pablo Macias declared independence from Italy as the Principality of Andany. Unanimously, Pablo Macias was crowned as the Prince of Andany shortly after. A Declaration of Independence was sent in paper form and by email to the Italian Government. No response has come back so far. The Prince was on holiday when Andany declared Independence. An Instagram post was made on the founding of Andany. The purpose of the Principality of Andany was to protect the endangered Mediterranean species Queen conch[1], and the Posidonia oceanica, or Mediterranean seagrass.[2] The Queen conch species is being killed and their habitats have been destroyed by fishermen and boats. The Posidonia oceanica, is known in Italy as "the olive of the sea".[3] The Prince really likes Queen Conch, thus creating the Queen Conch Restorations Act. The Queen conch Restoration Act was signed the day Andany was founded. It consists of it being the current National Animal and having extra care from the Oceanic Conservation Agency. Andany was founded with basic principles based on the Etruscan societal standards.

Revolutionary War

The Andanian Revolutionary War was an internal conflict in the Principality of Andany about conserving the Hudson Mountain Range into a nature conservation area. The rebel against the conservation idea was Will van den Boom, a Roman Imperial Party Senator who claimed that making a preserve wouldn't help the flora and fauna. The conflict began on 12 March 2018 after the National Assembly of Andany could not make a resolution towards the conservation area. It ended on 14 March 2018 after a peace agreement was signed in order to maintain Andany as a country and for nature to be preserved in Andanian culture and society. The Prince, Will van den Boom, and their respective followers all signed a peace agreement called the "Hudson Agreement". The purpose was to establish recreational parks for the flora and fauna of the Hudson Mountain Range and River Valley. Two Andanian citizens did remain neutral throughout the entire ordeal. Some propaganda for either side was shown on national television. Following the signing of the Hudson Agreement, the Prince himself visited the nature reserve along with Will van den Boom. They explored and found some of the Painted lady butterflies still in Andany. This inspired the Prince to start the National Conservation Agency. The national organization was created to find, help, and protect Andanian flora and fauna.

La Revolución

A rebellion between people of a total of eight micronations ensued, On 20 May 2018, the Iustian 2nd division of Jaax Town was sent over to Fort Dealvi and captured the Andanian Embassy in Iustus and territory which was annexed by Iustus and Vedecsco. On 22 May 2018, some of those micronations took to Twitter to express their opinion on the Andanian Government lying about some events. They declared independence on 22 May 2018 as the “Republic of Andany”. This led to many disputes and ruckus in many Discord severs. Tensions were continuously high between people in the morning of 23 May 2018. Finally, on 23 May 2018, negotiations between the Republic of Andany and the Principality of Andany began. These were considered to be going very well. The results were the Republic of Andany becoming defunct and merging with Principality of Andany; thus creating the new position of a Duceño. This was because of the Duceño Act creating a royal seat equal to the Prince. More agreements were made on MicroWiki. After, the Dukian Foreign Affairs Department built a new embassy for the Principality on 23 May 2018 to show peace.

Contemporary history

On 3 January 2018, the Kingdom of Imvrassia sent an email to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. They asked if Andany could unite with the Kingdom of Imvrassia or become a single federation: "The Government of the Kingdom of Imvrassia proposes the union of Andany with Imvrassia or we can create a federation.". For safety reasons, the Prince himself asked, "We don't quite get the cache on a "union" or federation being created.". The citizens of Andany had mixed feelings about the message. The population took a quick vote online, with a staggering 100% voting no. After the Prince sent the message, a response came back on January 5 at 5:53 AST. The response astonished everyone in Andany. It read, "1. The Principality of Andany would made an official request to form a union with the Kingdom of Imvrassia. 2. The Government of Imvrassia will immediately accept this request and Andany will be proclaimed as an Imvrassian Province. 3. His Highness Prince Pablo Macias will be appointed as Governor-General of the Province of Andany. 4. His Highness Prince Pablo Macias will be appointed as Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Imvrassia. 5. His Highness Prince Pablo Macias will be awarded the title of Count of Imvrassia. 6. The Province of Andany will have the full inner workings of local government and will be allowed the establishment and operation of a representative-public advisory body under the name of the House of Representatives. This body will be under the chairmanship and responsibility of the Governor-General. 7. The Governor-General of the Province will be the Commander of the Provincial Guard of Andany.". The Prince voted later in the day, along with the entire population. Non-surpsrisingly, the Prince and the residents voted no. This was a major part in Andanian history, as a country tried to turn an entire country (micronation) into a province. While the Ministry of Foreign Affairs replied with a no, the Principality of Andany did however recognize the Kingdom of Imvrassia.

Geography, climate, and environment

Andany is located Sardinia, between the latitudes of 41° and 42° N, and longitudes 9° and 10° E. All the land surrounding Andany is part of Italy. The land area of the entirety of Andany is approximately 2.641788 km2 (1.02 mi2), of which 2.640 km² (1.019 sq mi) is land and 0.001788 km² (0.0007 sq mi) is water. Floris is the largest state at 0.983 km2 (0.4 sq mi). The smallest state, Mendia, is 0.685 km2 (0.3 sq mi) in area. The unpopulated territories of Gaea Rock and Emperor Island together cover 115.59016 km2 (44.62961 mi sq). The entirety of Andany’s coastline and land border stretches 5.82 km (3.61 mi) on the Mediterranean Sea and Gulf of Andany. The ground is part of the Variscan basement, which consits of a plutonic complexity. Some volcanic sedimentary rocks can be found in Andany, more likely on Juniper Peak. The valley that Andany is in is called Gallura. The Lipán Tribe of Andany created the first Native Andanian Indian Reservation, with a steady population of 2.

To the north, Andany has the Duyatán Peninsula, with the Bay of Menditsua to the right, and the Gulf of Andany to the left. Also, Juniper Peak, a granite promontory topped with junipers, towers over the entire country. The Hudson Mountain Range is a mountain range the northern part of Andany; which was turned into a conoevration area with the "Hudson Agreement" after the Revolutionary War occured. The 4 meter wide Saint Michael's River runs parallel to the state lines of Floris and Mendia, only to meet with the Frenchman River. To the south, it consists of the Gallura Chip. Most of the land in the southern portion is flatland and small hills. It borders Italy (3.76 km) and the Mediterranean Sea. Andany’s only claims are of Gaea Rock, which is an islet that lies a few meters from Juniper Peak, and Snow Island in Antarctica; used as a sanctuary for Emperor Penguins. Andany is mostly flat in the southern Zuhaitzan regions. Though, the northern portion is more mountainous. The Frenchman River is a 15 meter wide river that passes through Mendia and Floris from central Sardinia to Hibiscus Bay, emptying at Aintzira Lake. Gaea Rock is a territorial islet of Andany, lying off the coast of Juniper Peak.

Climate

Thanks to the great elevational changes of Juniper Peak, Duyatán Peninsula, and the mostly mountainous northern conformation, the climate of Andany is highly diverse. In most of the inland southern and central regions, the climate ranges from humid subtropical to humid continental and oceanic. In particular, the climate of the Hudson Mountain Range geographical region is mostly continental, with harsh winters and hot summers. The average temperature in Andany is 48°F (9°C) and with 8 mph (12 kph) winds. It is also humid. The coastal areas of Zuhaitza and most of Floris generally fit the Mediterranean climate stereotype (Köppen climate classification Csa). Conditions on peninsular coastal areas can be very different from the north's higher ground and valleys, particularly during the winter months when the higher altitudes tend to be cold, wet, and often snowy. The coastal regions have mild winters and warm and generally dry summers, although lowland valleys can be quite hot in summer.[4]

Summer is usually more stable, although the northern regions often have thunderstorms in the afternoon/night hours and some grey and rainy days. So, while in the north, the summer is typically dry and sunny, in the south it tends to be more humid and cloudy. Spring and Autumn weather can be very changeable, with sunny and warm weeks (sometimes with Summer-like temperatures) suddenly broken off by cold spells or followed by rainy and cloudy weeks. The southern places, such as Menditsa International Airport, recieve more rain and clouds. The central plains, such as Ginepro and Kostaldea, get moderate rain and close to no flooding. The northern portion, such as the Hudson Mountain Range and the high city (Menditsua) in elevation, get little rain. Places like Juniper Peak and the Duyatán Peninsula recieve more rain than other higher places because of foliage moisture. Both major rivers in Andany, the Frenchman and the Saint Michael's, induce a little more rain than usual, causing the most minor of three inch flooding. Andany recieves more rain in winter than any other season, causing November through February to be called the "Rainy Season".

Wildlife

The Andanian ecology is megadiverse: about 300 species of vascular plants occur in the contiguous Principality of Andany and Gaea Rock, and over 1,800 species of flowering plants are found in Zuhaitza, few of which occur on the Gaea Rock. The Principality of Andany is home to approximately 100 mammal species, 30 bird species, 23 reptile species, and 10 amphibian species. About 400 insect species have been described. The Queen conch is both the national invertebrate and national animal of Andany, and is an enduring symbol of the country itself. The seahorse is also a sacred animal in Andanian culture, with a planned seahorse statue being built at the future Hibiscus Prommenade. The sehorse is also used in Andany TV, the state run television program for Andany. There is a national park, as well as a wilderness conservation area which was fought over in the Andanian Revolutionary War. Altogether, the government owns about 15% of the country's land area. Most of this is protected, though some is leased for oil and gas drilling, mining, logging, or cattle ranching; about 2% is used for military purposes. Environmental issues have been on the national agenda since 2017. Environmental controversies include debates on oil and wildlife area, dealing with air and water pollution, the economic costs of protecting wildlife, logging and deforestation, and international responses to global warming. Many federal and state agencies are involved. The most prominent is the Land Conservation Agency (LCA), created by the Prince's order in 2017. The idea of wilderness has shaped the management of public lands since 2017, with the Wilderness Act. The Endangered Species Act of 2018 is intended to protect threatened and endangered species and their habitats, which are monitored by the National Park Service.

Politics

The Constitution, which consists of 20 sections and 2 articles, provides for a separation of powers into executive, legislative, and judicial branches, and grants extensive specific guarantees of civil liberties and social rights. Women's suffrage was guaranteed with an amendment to the 2018 Constitution. According to the Constitution, executive power is exercised by the Prince of the Principality and the Government. From the Constitutional amendment of 2018, the Prince's duties were curtailed to a significant extent, and they are now largely ceremonial; most political power thus lies in the hands of the Prime Minister.The position of Prime Minister, Andany's semi-head of government which has yet to be elected, belongs to the current leader of the political party that can obtain a vote of confidence by the National Assembly. The Prince of the Principality formally appoints the Prime Minister and, on his recommendation, appoints and dismisses the other members of the Cabinet.

Legislative powers are exercised by a 33-member elective unicameral National Assembly. Statutes passed by the National Assembly are promulgated by the Prince of the Principality. Assembly elections are held every year, but the Prince is obliged to dissolve the Assembly earlier on the proposal of the Cabinet, in view of dealing with a national issue of exceptional importance. The Prince is also obliged to dissolve the Aembly earlier, if the opposition manages to pass a motion of no confidence.

Proclamations

The Principality of Andany claims to be a sovereign, independent nation-state, completely surrounded by Italy. As a result, it has adopted a system of government recognizably similar in structure to that of a sovereign state.[3] According to a study made by the Andanian Government, 80% of the citizens say they live a happy life. This conlcudes to the fact that the somewhat "strict" citizenship exam subliminally makes a citizen of Andany happier. This was the case as well for Switzerland. Same-sex marriage has been legal in Andany since 2017.[4]

Political structure

Andany is a principality governed by a constitution creating a National Assembly and other institutions of state. There are judicial, legislative, and executive branches of the government.[5] The constitution is a very special document in Andany, and is kept at the International History Museum of Andany.[6] The two major political parties in Andany are the Athenian Imperial Party, and the Roman Imperial Party.

Principality of Andany
9.029.608.957.758.7510.00Full democracy
Political divisions (also referred to as administrative divisions) of Andany are the various recognized governing entities that together form the Principality of Andany. The first-level political division (Administrative division division of the Principality of Andany is the Andanian Constituent state. There are 3 states, which are bound together in a political union with each other. Each state holds governmental jurisdiction over a defined geographic territory, and shares its sovereignty with the Federal government of the Principality of Andany.[7] According to numerous decisions of the Principality of Andany Supreme Court, the 3 individual states and the Principality of Andany as a whole are each sovereign jurisdictions. All state governments are modeled after the federal government and consist of three branches (although the three-branch structure is not Constitutionally required): Governor, State legislature Principality of Andany, and State court Principality of Andany.[8] They retain plenary power to make laws covering anything not preempted by the Andanian Constitution, Andanian Code, or list of Andanian treaties ratified by the Andanian National Assembly, and are organized as presidential systems where the governor is both head of government and head of state (even though this too is not required). The various states are then subdivided into counties of the Andanian states. Andanian subnational divisions include the District of Floriano, and the Principality of Andany Crown Dependency (Gaea Rock, all of which are administered by the Federal government). The Federal government also maintains exclusive jurisdiction over military installations and Andanian embassies and consulate(s) located in foreign countries. Other special purpose divisions exist separately from those for general governance, examples of which include conservation district(s) and Congressional district(s).[9]

States and their subdivisions

The primary political entity of the Principality of Andany is the state. The three states — Floris, Zuhaitza, and Mendia — are a "commonwealth". The word commonwealth in this context refers to the common "wealth", or welfare, of the public. The District of Floriano is the capital of the country. It is located in Floris and is also home to the prince, Prince Pablo. The most popular state in Andany is Floris. Floris is known for Hibiscus Bay, and the beautiful granite promontory; Juniper Peak. Zuhaitza is the second most popular state in Andany. It is known for its private beaches at Pearl Point, and Paradise Bay. Mendia is the least populated state, however, it does include small private beach. Also, it's a great spot for camping and snorkeling. Gaea Rock is the small island off the coast of Floris. It is an isle or small island, made from granite. It is accessible by boat.[10]
