It has its own wiki http://republicofawesome.wikia.com/wiki/
The Republic of Awesome was formed on August 22, 2010, as the founders were of the belief that the leaders of Australia (the macronation they were part of) aren't doing enough to help the planet, or to promote social justice.
The Republic of Awesome is a democratic republic. In order for legislation to pass, it must be approved by a majority of ministers. Each minister has a sector they are in charge of. The current government portfolios are as follows:
- Head of Defence
- Minister for IT
- Minister of Visual Arts and Pancakes
- Minister for Conference Tables, Fish Sauce and Performing Arts (and things we aren't meant to talk about i.e. intelligence organisations...)
- Minister for Nostalgia and 42
- Minister of Magic
- Minister of Pyrotechnics and Weapons
- Minister for Fandoms
- Minister of Everything Else (has
a designated slavean underling)
For a law to pass, at least 51% of the ministers attending must approve of the legislation. Tradition then dictates that they do a high five.
Formally, tobacco and plastic bags were considered illegal, but this law was removed, since it was deemed unconsititutional.
The Republic of Awesome has two types of police; the Federal Police Force and the Fun Police. The Fun Police deal strictly with infringements of the original motto (If it's fun, it's legal! Unless it impacts on someone else's right to do likewise, in which case it is not legal.). For example, while it is legal to use pyrotechnics, using them early in the morning to annoy someone would be an issue for the Fun Police. Getting totally off-your-face drunk and assulting people would be an issue for both the Federal and Fun police (Federal for the assult, Fun because getting off-your-face drunk in a public area, when you know you'll probably do something, is an infringement of the motto).
The denominations of the currency of the Republic of Awesome are the Nano, the Dollar and the Tera, where 100 Nanos is the equivalent of 1 Dollar and 100 Dollars is equivalent to 1 Tera. Australian money is accepted tender.
There is no set religion and the culture is said to be multicultural. The national dish is the Banana Split, the national drink is the Ice Cream Spider and the national animal is the Pangolin. A religion unique to the Republic of Awesome, although not a defining feature of its people, is Hemeshemaism (worship of the Great Heemasheema).
The Republic of Awesome has many Public Holidays' including:
- Independence Day (August 22) - Officially Establishment Day. The Republic of Awesome is not independant yet.
- Explosion Appreciation Day (Janurary 3) - In celebration of the liberation of pyrotechnics.
- Tumour Free Day (May 13) - In celebration of the day a girl's tumour disappeared, causing much happiness among the people.
- Let's have a public holiday because we feel like one Day (dates vary) - In celebration of Australia's apparent policy of random holidays for all.
- Helium Balloon day (2nd weekend in October) - A budget hot air balloon festival.
- Paper Flower day (September 15) - Paper flowers are easier to grow in an arid landscape such as that in the Republic.
Citizens respect and worship a very special animal called the Heemasheema (HEE-mah-SHEE-mah).
Currently, the President and the High Priestess are writing the Book of the Heemasheema, which will tell of the Prophet Softcheese and how the Heemasheema did troll her with false predictions and visions.
