Vian, officially the The Federal Republic of Vian or The FR Vian is a territorial North American Anglophone micronation which is located formerly in the state of Ohio in the USA. It was established in 2010.Vian is classified as a Bricks and Mortar, Tiny, Statehood — 6th World Nation by the Bloodlesmythe-Tallini Scale.
At the time of its founding Vian was one of three micronations in Ohio: The Ohio Empire, Jebkerika and Vian.
Origin Of The Name Vian
Vian was named when Samuel I went to Nikolaj I house to work on an unnamed micronation they were forming. They sat around for over 2 hours making up names. Vian was the only one they could agree on.
The area that would later become Vian was originally settled in 1788 by John Cleves Symmes and a few others as Losantiville. In 1790 Arthur St. Clair renamed Losantiville Cincinnati, in honour of The Society of Cincinnati. Skippining ahead a couple of generations Sir Samuel I would lead a small revolution declaring independance for his and Sir Nikolkaj I houses.
In early April 2010, "Samuel I" became interested in the prospect of micronationalism. He originally met with his friend Nikolaj I where they decided a micronation would be a fun endeavor. Over the next month they would meet and decide on many things for the nation that would eventually become known as Ohio, specifically the Empirical Dyarchy of Ohio.
Samuel I leaned towards a liberal multi-party democracy while Nikolaj I leaned towards a Absolute Monarchy/Dictatorship. They settled on a mix developed by Samuel I via a nation with two equal leaders: A democratically elected Chancellor (Nikolaj I was not very fond of having a "President") and a hereditary Emperor/Empress. Parliament was elected by allowing people to vote for political parties using proportional voting. On 27 May 2010 the EDO was officially formed. The declaration of independence was writen and sent to The Ohio Empire. War was never pursued and talks of an alliance occured. The military was formed soon after. After a couple of days The Liberal Democratic Party was formed with The Emperor as its only member. In late may after summer brake had been going on for a few days HIH Chancellor and Crown Prince Nikolaj I left on a vacation.
From EDO To FRV
From June 1, 2010 to July 15, 2010 Vian would be reformed into a Federal Republic. The monarchy had no supporters and The Federal Republic brought in a change that was accepted by all as a good thing.
