Athor, officially the Islamic Emirate of Athor, is a self declared sovereign nation (commonly referred to as a micronation) that declared independence in late 2022.
Athor is governed as an Islamic Absolute Monarchy - however the nation has an established parliament. The nation's monarch, the Emir of Athor, holds absolute power and is responsible for most foreign and domestic issues concerning the nation. The Prime Minister sits as head of government and chairs the council of ministers and aids the monarch in overseeing most domestic affairs.
The Islamic Emirate was informally established on 21 December 2022 with a slight humorous tone to its existence until later that day when the nation was established as a serious nation.
