|The Semi-Autonomous Republic of Omastadt was a dependent territory of the Empire and Kingdom of Austro-Bulgarian Hungermany|
The Semi-Autonomous Republic of Omastadt, commonly known simply as Omastadt, was a constituent dependent territory of the Empire and Kingdom of Austro-Bulgarian Hungermany. It became the second republic of the ABHG on 17 February 2015 after it was officially granted statehood by Emperor-King Karl Brandenburg. It was located approximately 27 km (17 mi) northwest of the Republic of Malvaria, and it had a population of two individuals.
On 24 May 2015, Omastadt's territory was returned to the California Republic following the dissolution of the independent Empire and Kingdom of Austro-Bulgarian Hungermany.
The Republic of Omastadt was formed on 17 February 2015 after an Imperial Declaration by Emperor-King Karl Brandenburg, declaring the territory the second practical republic of the ABHG. Brandenburg had been considering the addition of this republic for some time, as its residents had direct familial relation to the Brandenburg name.
The incorporation of Omastadt was also significant due to it being the first republic with any degree of autonomy from the Imperial Government of the ABHG, and also its addition of another individual to the ABHG Council of Affairs. It did not, however, increase the ABHG's overall population, since its residents were already considered citizens beforehand.
On 24 May 2015, Omastadt's territory was returned to the territory of the California Republic following the signage of a treaty in Malvaria which solidified the dissolution of the independent Empire and Kingdom of Austro-Bulgarian Hungermany.
Government and Politics
The President of Omastadt was Gail Brandenburg. She held executive power over the republic, and also served, by definition, on the Austro-Bulgarian Hungerman Council of Affairs. Since Omastadt had only two legal residents, its legislative body was a diarchy or duumvirate, with both residents serving.
The political situation was slightly more varied than Malvaria. While Gail Brandenburg was required to be a member of the Imperial Party in order to serve as President, she was also an unofficial member of the unregistered Liberal-Social-Democratic Party, a party whose policies were reflected in the republic's government.
Geography and Climate
The republic was located approximately 27 km (17 mi) to the northwest of the Republic of Malvaria. Its geographical features included a groomed lawn, four trees, and several bushes and shrubs. There were no bodies of water in Omastadt.
The Republic contained one building in which both residents reside. This structure also contained the Omastadt Hotel and Omastadt Provincial Restaurant. It had one short road, which served as a border checkpoint to the California Republic. The Republic was also significant in that it was the only republic with an international border running through a previously established building.
Because of its nearby location to Malvaria, Omastadt had a similar Mediterranean climate. However, its more inland location gave it a slightly greater level of temperature variation than the coastal Malvaria. Thus, summer daytime highs typically ranged from 24-31 °C (75-86 °F) and winter nighttime lows generally ranged from 6-11 °C (43-52 °F). Due to its location, unusually hot days and cold nights occurred at greater frequency than the Republic of Malvaria.
