The Republic of Promesa is a Unitary semi-Presidential Republic Founded on 21 June 2014. The current President of the Republic is Ariel Yaari, who has served since the nation's inception. The nation's population as of September 2014 is 13 Promeshes (demonym for the citizens of Promesa). Promesa is comprised of 2 states: Autostrada City and Raquel Ciudad along with 2 Territorial Claims: Niesamowite and Ciudad de Oro. Officially the Republic of Promesa, the nation is a self-proclaimed micronation that was founded on the principles of Republicanism and freedom. On 14 August 2014, Casey Hamlin was appointed Chief of Staff to President Yaari.
The term Republic comes from the Latin term 'res publica' that evolved into the the French word 'republique', which in turn evolved into the 16th Century English (modern English) word Republic. Promesa is the Spanish word for 'promise'.
The Republic was founded on 21 June 2014. It was declared an independent state by Ariel Yaari. The Republic of Promesa, despite being a young nation, has gone through several name changes. Names have changed as follows:
1.The United Republic of Kids: The nation was originally named The United Republic of Kids, which was changed after President Yaari found the name to be foolish.
2.The Republic of South Florida: From The United Republic of Kids, The Republic of South Florida was eventually deemed to not fit the nation it was representing, and was changed.
3.The Republic of Promesa: The current name, which was declared to be "just right" from President Yaari
The Republic was founded on the principles of Republicanism, Democracy and freedom. The President openly stated that "I do not like kingdoms or empires. I am openly without covering up against them. The power that these kings and emperors have go to there [sic] head and they do crazy things". President Yaari was always very open towards republicanism and democracy. He founded the Republic on these virtues and does not want them to go to waste. A few days before the Republic was founded, President Yaari came upon the idea and principle of a micronation, liking the prospects of creating a nation the more he looked into it. One of Ariel Yaari's largest influences into entering micronationalism was the Hamlinian Republic and its leader Casey Hamlin. Yaari admired Hamlin's leadership skills and professional attitude. Yaari stated that "...that's what sealed the deal for me". Yaari called in his brother, PM Gabriel Mendoza, and explained to him the concepts and idea of a micronation. Much to Yaari's surprise, his brother loved the idea. Yaari was happy with this and since both of them had experience with politics, Yaari assigned Gabriel Prime Minister. Yaari later that day declared the nation independent.
