The Empire of Vyomania (Hindi: व्योमणीस्थान राज्य, Vyomani: 𑂫𑂹𑂨𑂷𑂧𑂢𑂲𑂮𑂹𑂟𑂰𑂢 𑂩𑂰𑂔𑂹𑂨) was a self-declared independent state, identified as a micronation by external observers. It was situated in Maharashtra. The capital of Vyomania was Agartha. 'Vyom' (𑂫𑂹𑂨𑂷𑂧) is a Sanskrit and Vyomani word for space. Vyomania was created as a part of Fridays for Future movement which later lost its momentum in 2021 because of lockdown.
Before the Empire of Vyomania came about, the mainland of Vyomania was controlled by India. Maharaja Mohak wanted a nation based on Gandhian philosophy, a nation with a government that uses Science and Technology to develop while simultaneously learning the secrets of the ancient world and preserving the good ancient ideas, and on 03 Jun 2020, declared independence as The Empire of Vyomania.
Foundation of a new empire
The Empire of Vyomania was founded on 3 Jun 2020. After the enactment of the new Constitution, things began to go by smoothly in Vyomania until the idea of Vyomania was abandoned.
End of the empire
The Empire of Vyomania lasted until 11 January 2022, whereupon it became a part of India once again. Vyomania was created as a part of Fridays for Future movement which later lost its momentum in Maharashtra.
The Empire was a unitary constitutional monarchy. The Maharaja (King in Vyomani) was the head of state. A Vizier (head of government) is elected. Some of the decisions were taken by computer algorithms, making Vyomania a bit cyberocratic. Only people with scientific knowledge and skills could become candidates in elections. There were some prohibitions in Vyomania, like:
- You are not allowed to throw trash in open
- You are not allowed to cut a tree or plant if you have not planted it
- Exhaust gas-producing vehicles were banned.
If someone broke rules, they had to pay fine and were sometimes even from the official Discord server and in some cases, citizenship was taken away. Every Vyomanian resident has to make Ecosia the default search engine in all browsers on all devices except on Mobiles. Vyomanian government gives residents universal basic income. Umuganda, which means "coming together for common purpose" in Kinyarwanda and Vyomani, is a national holiday that takes place on the last Virunar of every month for mandatory nationwide community work.
The Empire of Vyomania's official currency was the Suryom, a digital currency, and it was usable only in the Vyomanian territory. Suryom was managed by the Bank of Vyomania.
Vyomania followed the metric system and has its own units of measurement.
The foreign relations and affairs of Vyomania was run by the Vyomanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This includes: creating diplomatic ties between Vyomanian and a foreign nation, ending diplomatic ties with a foreign nation, managing the foreign policy of Vyomania, and organizing meetings and summits with other nations, all of these decisions must also have approval by the Monarchs of Vyomania before they are put into practice, the Monarchs of Vyomania may also make the same decisions without the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
