Eintrachtia, officially the Kingdom of Eintrachtia (CRE, C.R.E. or C.R. Eintrachtia), is a micronation[1] with territorial claims in Portugal, Australia, United Kingdom and Antarctica. Until 2022, Eintrachtia had about 25 "citizens". Eintrachtia is a self-claimed sovereign state without being recognized by any recognized national government nor the UN, making it a micronation.

At about 725,000 square kilometers (about 280,000 square miles), it is among one of the largest micronations by territory[2]. The Eintrachtian territory consists of grass plains, several structures including farms and rivers. The capital city is Concorde and its largest city is Lochshire. The country is divided into 4 counties and 2 municipalities. English and German are the official languages along with Eintrachtian as a co-official language due to it being a minority language by spoken population even though it is the native language of Eintrachtia proper throughout its history.

The imperialist colonial governing system of the Empire of Eintracia was overthrown by the Concorde Revolution in 2021. Before that, the Republic of Eintracia, also known as the Penguins Republic before 2020, held claims of control over territories, protectorates and colonies in Antarctica, Asia, Europe, North America and Oceania. Although most were withdrawn from claim, some continues to be Eintrachtian territories today.

Modern day Eintrachtia is a combination of territories in the former colonies of European colonial powers such as Britain and Portugal. In 1788 with the first British fleet arrived in Australia, later gaining independence forming the Commonwealth of Australia. In 2020 the Empire of Eintracia would establish the colony of Cateringston in Melbourne and later become an official territory of Eintrachtia in 2021. Concorde, the current capital of Eintrachtia, comprises of several structures in what is known as the municipality of Setubal in Portugal. The city was known as Cetobriga in the Lusitanian provice in the ancient Roman Empire. Lochshire is a territory in the former Welsh territories and the Kingdom of Wales, modern Lochshire has several structures and a river. "Loch" is commonly referred to as lakes in Scottish, "Lochshire" generally means a place near a water body that is shallow.

Eintrachtia hosts the Eintrachtian Commonwealth, and was the one of the founding members of the Union of Antarctic Micronations, the Pacific Association of Micronations and the Concord Pact, and a member of the Alliance of the Micronations. Eintrachtia is also an observer of the Conpan Prosperity Coalition.

Etymology

The name "Eintrachtia" comes from the original word "Eintracht" which means "Concord" or "Unity" in German. The original name "Eintracia" has cut the "ht" for better pronunciation, it changed back to Eintrachtia in 2022 during the Constitutional Republic Reformation, as stated in the official website of Eintrachtia.[3]

Even though Eintrachtia has mostly been called a "republic", throughout its history, Eintrachtia has mostly been a Constitutional Monarchy. The country can also be referred to as a "Constitutional Republic" is mainly due to the adoption of the "separation of powers" system in the government, making the nation more like a federal republic with a de facto but executive monarch.

History

In 1788, the first fleet of British ships arrived in the Botany Bay in modern Sydney. After the establishment of the colony of Australia and the Commonwealth of Australia in 1901, the Empire of Eintracia proclaimed the establishment of the colony of Cateringston in Melbourne in 2020.

Concorde, the capital city of Eintrachtia, is located in the municipality of Setubal in Portugal. In antiquity the city was known as Cetobriga, a Turdetani settlement that came under Roman control in the province of Lusitania.[4] A part of the ancient wall of the city can still be found today in Concord and is proclaimed a level 1 historical monument in 2022 and a common property of the Eintrachtian and Portuguese Government, being a site of the National Museum of History of Concord, a governmental owned organization.

In 1842, the Treaty of Nanking came into effective and the Qing Empire ceded the island of Hong Kong to the British Empire. In 1860, the Convention of Peking was signed and the Qing further ceded the Kowloon Peninsula to the British. In 30 May 2017, the Penguins Republic was established and it claimed land in Setubal, Portugal, Cardiff, Wales, a part in the Antarctic Peninsula and a land in Kowloon, Hong Kong. A property which later was withdrawn by the Eintrachtian Government and was later made the embassy of Eintrachtia in Hong Kong (and Macau).

Lochshire was a part of the Kingdom of Wales, before gaining temporary independence as a Penguinsian Commonwealth state and then became a full part of Eintracia after the establishment of the Republic of Eintracia. It became an official municipality according to the Constitution of Eintrachtia in 2021.

Ballistelliburgh was established during the Penguins Republic period, after Eintracia had claimed half of Alexander Island, the province of Ballistelliburgh was formed. In 2021, the county of Gentoo replaced the former province and Ballistelliburgh became the capital city of Gentoo.

The Wilkes Territory, made up with 3 separate counties, South Wilkes, a part of Gentoo and Costenia was established by the Eintracian Imperial Government in 2020. South Wilkes, originally Wilkes, given up half of its land to Gentoo, making Gentoo has a piece of land in both the Antarctic Peninsula and the Australian claimed Wilkes Land, and renaming Wilkes to South Wilkes.

Eintrachtia was originally the Penguins Republic, founded in 2017. It was established for entertainment purposes. The micronation was then renamed the Empire of Eintracia for a short period in 2020, before it was then renamed to what it is known today the Constitutional Republic of Eintrachtia (2022). The nation was under a imperialist system between 2020 and 2021, during the constitutional monarchist rule in the former Republic of Eintracia. Eintrachtia is also one of the founding members of the Pacific Association of Micronations (PAM).

Foundation

Penguins Republic was a confederal republic consisting of the Wilkes State (situated in the Wilkes Land) and a piece of land in the Antarctic Peninsula. The Penguins Republic had King John I as a de facto leader, but no official Prime Minister or Chancellor of state was elected until the establishment of Eintrachtia, the King held the work of the Chancellor, making the King also the executive of state.

In 2020, King John changed the name of the state to "Eintracia" from the German word "Eintracht" meaning unity and concord. Eintracia begin to expand its overseas territories to Portugal and the United Kingdom in July 2020, establishing those territories as "colonies". On 30th May 2021, the Government of Eintracia decided to move the location of the capital, Concord, from the original location in Wilkes Land to the small territory in Setubal, Portugal. On the same day, the Constitution was officially passed after 4 years of the establishment of the micronation, forming the Constitutional Republic of Eintrachtia. The Empire of Eintracia, also known as the Republic of Eintracia, despite being short lived, has contributed to many of the land claims of modern day Eintrachtia. The rule of the imperial dynasty had made Eintrachtia temporarily a colonial power, before being overthrown by a coup d'état in 2021, commonly referred to as the Concord Revolution, and the establishment of the revolutionary State of Eintrachtia and a new constitutional crowned republic. The establishment of the temporary National Council and the return of the throne after the publishment of the Eintrachtian Constitution.

The Constitution of Eintrachtia was drafted since early 2021, and was based on the Constitution of the United States presented in 1787 and the Constitution of France adopted in 1958. It was completed before the proclamation of the new constitutional crowned republic in May 2021 and was officially presented on the day of the establishment. The Constitution safeguards the freedom of the Eintrachtian people under a constitutional monarchy.

But since the start of April in 2022, Eintrachtia made various contacts with other micronations, most notable of which are Cyrance and the USRM, both currently being close allies of Eintrachtia. The Concord Pact was originally an alliance between Eintrachtia and Cyrance, after the suggestion of making it an intermicronational organization in an online conference between the two national leaders, the Concord Pact was formed and to further protect the peace between its member states. On 16 April 2022, Eintrachtia, together with Cyrance established the Union of Eurasian Micronations, which later became the Pacific Association of Micronations.

The Concord Pact and the PAM are examples of the alliance between the CFR and the CRE. In 11th July 2022, Polarveinn was established as a protectorate of both Eintrachtia and Cyrance. Polarveinn joined the Concord Pact and became a permanent observer state of the Eintrachtian Commonwealth and prosperity sphere. The Principality was incorporated into Eintrachtia on 18 January 2023, 5 months after the CFR dissolved.
