Bangtanszag formed in the 10th century as a principality of various Koreanic, Turkic, and Uralic tribes who had just displaced the native Slavic tribes there. It had been always under foreign rule, until it was liberated during the invasion of the Holy Roman Reich by the United Alliance Front on January 2021.

As of now, Bangtanszag is in war with the decentralised United Alliance Front and had gain and annexed the territories of Bohemia, Eastern March, and Silesia after a large offensive in June 2021. It is a member of the Orthodox League, with Pandogia and Romansovia.


The endonym Bangtanszag is a compound word composed of bangtan (Korean for bulletproof) and szag (country). The word bangtan refers to the country's geography, it being surrounded by the Carpathian mountain range.



Prior to the Roman conquest of part of today's Bangtanszag (Cisdanubia), there were no written records about the history of this country. As far as archæology knows, the Carpathian Basin is inhabited by Pannonian Illyrians (northern Albanians) and Dacians on the east of the Danube and Tisza rivers. Centuries after Roman incorporation, the government collapsed and the basin fell to different invasions as nomadic groups migrate to the fertile soils of Europe, including the Huns, Avars, Gökturks, Pechenegs and Cumans.

When all of those nomadic empires fell, most of their territory were split by the emerging United Atlantic Federation and the Empire of the Bulgars, a Turko-Slavic power. This is where the recently unified Turanic tribes collectively known as Bangtans started to enter today's Bangtanszag and settle there, since the Bulgarians failed to assimilate the local population. Jun, the leader of the seven main Bangtan tribes established his capital on Vindobona (now named Bécs). Within a century, they became Christianised and expanded towards Carinthia and Bohemia.

The semi-nomadic state monopolised on trade between the Holy Roman Reich and Romansovia since the trade routes pass towards their territory. They also possess the first cavalry unit in Central Europe, called the huszar, and many mounted units by different European countries were modelled after the Bangtan huszar.

Kingdom period (996-1526)

The prince at that time, Gyösek wanted to integrate Bangtanszag into the whole of Christendom. His successor, Csimin, now known as Nikolaj Khan became the first Orthodox Khagan of Bangtanszag as he was baptised by the Patriarch Sisinnius II of Constantinople, technically upgrading the state from a principality into a khaganate. He instituted Latin as co-official with the Bangtan language, making it connected with the rest of Europe. Matthias I Khan expanded the Bangtan frontiers to the Adriatic Sea, annexing the Croatian and Bosnian kingdoms, which led to conflicts with the Italian city-states.

Bela II Khan gave refuge to Pecheneg and Cuman nomads during the Mongol invasion of Europe and protected their interests here, leading to the first autonomy law known as Diploma Belanum.

The Bangtan Khaganate were one of the first European countries outside of Italy to embrace the Renaissance, with the warrior-poet Matthias IV Khan, being their last great khagan. His legacy is today cemented on Bangtan stories and literature.

With the rise of the Holy Roman Reich and the Arabumbay Caliphate, Bangtanszag became a buffer state along with Lagdamia and Vilasia. When Matthias IV Khan died in 1526, the Arabumbays invaded the khaganate.

Partition (1526-1790)

The Arabumbays led by Baturik Pasha won the decisive battle at Bécs, on 11 September 1526. The Holy Roman Reich, their ally at that time pledge to liberate Bangtanszag. By 1540, they were successful at recapturing Bécs, Sopron, and all of the territories north of the Drava and west of the Tisza. These parts were termed as Imperial Bangtanszag were annexed to the Reich proper in 1550. The Reich finally liberated Transtisza in 1790.

Reich period (1790-2021)

Bangtans enjoyed complete autonomy as being part of the Holy Roman Reich throughout its' history. They had enjoyed the liberal reforms after 1848, social-democratic reforms in 1920 and Bangtans attained high positions within the Reich.

On 5 January 2021, Uzugiris Janos established the Bangtan Khaganate from parts annexed by Yasuslav, the leading kingdom within the Reich, but never left it. The declaration of independence only happened because of the dissatisfaction of the Bangtans towards the "elected" Kaiser, Jeremiah and the corrupt Imperial election of February 2021. Hundreds of Bangtans stormed the parliament at Poszony and torched it down, as dissent spread across the country. The revolution was inspired by similar revolution in Batonia which had the same revolution for the same reason.

Present era (2021-present)

The newly independent Bangtanszag, having recently transferred its' capital in Székesjunfalvá, is in a war with the United Alliance Front, who had just invaded the Holy Roman Reich after the Bangtan deceleration of independence. The army was able to defend the Alps and the Carpathians, until Khagan Janos I ordered an offensive towards Bohemia and Bavaria, conquering Prága and Linz in a matter of days. In June 2021, they were able to push and annex Silesia, Bohemia, and parts of Eastern March. Since September 2021, Bangtanszag is in an alliance with Pandogia (formely Batonia), and Romansovia, known as the Orthodox League.

Government and politics

Bangtanszag is a federal state of five duchies and two borderlands. It is an autocratic elective monarchy "in which the khagan's laws reign supreme, under divine right". The rulers of the five duchies convene to make important decisions or when a khagan has passed away, to elect another one.

Political divisions

The five stem duchies (namely Bangtanföld, Kunföld, Jászföld, Avarföld and Besenyföld) are the principal political and administrative divisions of the country. Each duchies have a certain level of autonomy enjoyed within the country. They are further subdivided into provinces and communes, which is the lowest level of administration.

As part of the campaign against the United Alliance Front and the Bread Doge Empire, the Bangtanszag government established three new marches or borderlands, namely Teume March in Carinthia, Engene March in Silesia and the Polish March in Galicia.

Bangtan citizenship is given jus soli at birth, meaning that everyone born in Bangtanszag is a Bangtan citizen.

However, Israeli micronations do not have established relations with Bangtanszag due to its' anti-Jewish pogroms and massive deportation of Jewish illegal settlers to the western border with the United Alliance Front. It is a member of the Orthodox League.


His Royal Majesty the Khagan is the generralissimo of the Bangtan Armed Forces (ARMY). He has direct control over the five branches of ARMYs, Land Force, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and Space Force. Military service is mandatory for up to two years, and technically, all able Bangtan men are reservists, only to be summoned during war.

Law enforcement and crime

Law enforcement is the responsibility of the paramilitary forces, subordinate to the Bangtan Land Force. Capital punishment is still not abolished in Bangtanszag, but most prisoners undergo re-education through open prisons, which lowers the prison population.



The reported Bangtan population is at 2,155 as of December 2021. This makes Bangtanszag as one of the largest microstates in the MicroWiki community. Out of those, 39% live on cities with population of 400, which makes Bangtanszag as one of the micronations with a large rural population.

67% of Bangtans are married, while 12% are widowed, 5% are divorced and 16% are still single. Most families have 3 children in total.


At the national level, Latin, Bangtan and Cuman are the declared official languages in Bangtanszag, with Cuman being instituted as an official language in the liberal-bourgeois reforms of 1849. The stem duchies recognise regional languages within their territory in addition to the official languages. This includes Jassic in Jászföld, Avar in Avarföld, and Pecheneg in Besenyföld.


The declared state religion is the Eastern Orthodox Church which accounts for 78% of the Bangtan population. Other Christian denominations and religions are tolerated as well, except for Judaism, which was recently outlawed and banned.

Islam is the second-largest religion with the 10% of the population as its' adherants. It is the traditional religion of the minority Arabumbay which had settled Transtisza for over 200 years.



Bangtanszag is home to one of the largest basilicas in Europe, the second-largest territorial abbey in the world, and the largest early Christian necropolis outside Italy. It is formely home to the largest synagogue in Europe, which was burned and toppled down during the Bangtan Revolution.

Notable architectural styles in Bangtanszag are Gothic revival, Jugendstil and the Sezession.


Before the Christianisation of Bangtanszag, Bangtan tribes wrote in Turkic runes. There had been some revivals of the script, but for aesthetic purposes only.

Literature in Bangtanszag flourished in the Renaissance period under the great warrior-poet Matthias IV Khan. In his reign as Khagan, printing presses were established in Bécs, Poszony and Pest, and the first book was written named Chronica Bangtanorum (The History of Bangtanszag). Bangtan literature is known over Central Europe, and various works were translated to other European languages.
