Blazdonia, also referred to as the Kingdom of Blazdonia, is a startup society network-state. It is landlocked in Australia
Blazdonia was founded on 5 April 2021 as a democratic absolute monarchy by King Kevin, with the aim of bringing people from diverse backgrounds together and fostering closer connections. The goal of the monarchy is to reinvigorate people's lives and help them flourish.
The government of Blazdonia is made up of the following: a monarchy made up of the king who exercises executive power; an elected parliament who holds legislative power; and an appointed judiciary that holds judicial power. The King holds all power—executive, legislative, and judiciary. This government is similar to that of Britain but has different spelled conventions for laws and procedures—all according to the rules of the Constitution.
Initially, Blazdonia was established for the sole purpose of becoming a successionist nation. In subsequent periods, it would come to incorporate the concept of being a nation that goes above and beyond in being a country that is fully rooted in the modern period. In other words, it would become a country that is truly ahead of its time. As a nation, Blazdonia endorses the principle that its government should make open and honest use of technological advancements for the sake of its citizens. Blazdonia is of the opinion that a nation's sovereignty may be maintained even if it does not have a physical presence.
As of yet, Blazdonia has not been recognized by other countries. However, Blazdonia meets the criteria to become a legitimate country according to international standards.
"Blaz" was chosen as the prefix as it was thought of as a good name,
"do" was chosen as the middle letters as they focus on action and doing things and not blabbering their mouths off, and
"nia" was chosen as the suffix as it is common for monarchial places.
Long before Blazdonia had a name or existed, the area that it later asserted to be its own had been a component of Queensland, one of the states of Australia. Blazdonia did not even exist during this time. It was there that the future king and creator of the nation spent his formative years, from childhood through his teenage years. In the 1800s, prisoners sentenced to hard labour were shipped to Australia, which was then a territory of the British Empire. In the early 20th century, Australia announced its independence from the British Empire while yet maintaining its membership in the Commonwealth. The life of the sovereign king was lived entirely inside the framework of the Australian system. When the then-Prime Minister Scott Morrison failed to live up to expectations during the early to middle stages of the Covid era, the creator of the nation took the choice to proclaim independence from Australia under the name of Blazdonia.
On 5 April 2021, the sovereign nation of Blazdonia came into being. It was initially created as a constitutional monarchy, but the king did not approve of this form of government since, in his view, it did not provide sufficient direct control. As a direct consequence of this, Blazdonia came to be known as a Democratic Absolute Monarchy. This was done in order to give the monarch complete authority while yet allowing for the establishment of a parliament and other democratically elected officials. This was done in order to give the monarch complete authority. When the nation of Blazdonia was first established, it was given its current name, and shortly after that, its flag and coat of arms were designed.
Formation of government
A government needed to be formed after the establishment. This was proven difficult by the direct words from the king himself. The king, as head of state, ruled without a head of government and without the government itself for as long as he could alone. Once he believed that the citizen population had grown large enough, he announced the first prime ministerial election, which ran for approximately one fortnight before the votes were counted and Aislinn Tanaka was elected. Since there was only one candidate, it was assumed that the first election was clear-cut. Days later, the first PM was appointed and sworn in. A week later, His Majesty appointed a defence minister and a few other individuals. To this day, ministers are being appointed to positions within every ministry. After speaking with the PM, the monarch later ruled that Blazdonia's legislature would be established. The Federal Parliament was its name. The federal parliament was mandated to have two houses, an upper chamber, the senate, and a lower chamber, the house of representatives. It became clear that the administration was bicameral even if the monarchy was unquestionably absolute. As stated by His Majesty and the PM, the parliament and both houses are, to this day, empty.
The realm would be colonized as states, as the king made a point of saying. The entire kingdom was subsequently partitioned into five (5) states, each of which was indissoluble together. Each of the localized states contained a number of provinces. The administration then asked the populace which state they generally preferred, and it was subsequently given to them. Governors and premiers are not yet in place in the states.
The five states of Blazdonia were labelled as "Original States." During subsequent time periods, the Common-pride of Sovereignties was established. The CPoS is a political association within Blazdonia. All members of the CPoS are additional states/territories of Blazdonia on top of the original states. The CPoS members have cultural autonomy but all else is of Blazdonia since it is a state of Blazdonia.
Post-establishment and contemporary eras
The Great Siege of Blazdonia was a major crisis which the people woke up to on 25 January 2022. It created havoc and widespread upheaval. Foreigners spammed and insulted numerous people on the Discord server, which serves as a communication hub nation-wide. This involved a lot of pinging and a lot of swearing. This would alter the way the country operated its communication links for the rest of its existence.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, which commenced in Blazdonia in 2021, several cities were locked down for extended periods of time, and free movement across state borders was restricted in an attempt to slow the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The government is held in a parliament. It consists of the senate and house of representatives and may include the head of state and head of government.
The federal government is divided into three branches:
- Legislature: the bicameral Parliament, comprising the monarch (represented by the governor-general), the Senate, and the House of Representatives.
- Executive: the Federal Executive Council, which in practice gives legal effect to the decisions of the cabinet, comprises the prime minister and other ministers of state, appointed by the governor-general on the advice of Parliament.
- Judiciary: The High Court and other federal courts, whose judges are appointed by the governor-general on advice of Parliament,
The Kingdom of Blazdonia is an absolute monarchy with a strong influence from British, Belgian, Thai, Japanese, and Norwegian royalty. The king inherits his power for life, and he has complete immunity to carry out all administrative duties without hesitation.
The Prime Minister of Blazdonia is the country's head of government and the monarch's primary representative in the affairs of the government. All other ministers are led by the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister is usually selected following a national election in which the individual obtains a majority of the votes; but, under an absolute monarchy, the monarch can choose a Prime Minister to their liking. Aislinn Tanaka, the current Prime Minister, was elected months after the country was founded and installed the following week.
The Governor-General serves as the voice of authority when the king doesn't reside in Blazdonia, keeping everyone compliant and attending to governmental affairs. They are accountable for initiating proceedings such as instituting judicial systems and ensuring safety laws are followed when need be. Apart from that, they preside over sessions with cabinet ministers, appoint foreign representatives while staying amicable to outside agreements, and basically make decisions that ensure everyone plays nice under one rule. In general, the governor-general observes the conventions of government, maintaining political neutrality, and has almost always acted only on the advice of the prime minister or other ministers, or, in certain cases, parliament. The governor-general also has a ceremonial role, hosting events at either of the two official residences—Government House in the capital, Salt Point City, and Admiralty House in Rankin—and travelling throughout Blazdonia to open conferences, attend services and commemorations, and generally provide encouragement to individuals and groups who are contributing to their communities. When traveling abroad, the governor-general is seen as the representative of Blazdonia and its king.
The legislature of Blazdonia is a twenty-membered bicameral body referred to as the Parliament of Blazdonia which is comprised of the Senate and House of Representatives. The Parliament is the sole law-making institution within the nation and is comprised of twenty members who are elected through a direct election held every year on the expiration of the term of the parliament or earlier if dissolved by the monarch on the advice of the government or of His Majesty's free will. The membership of the parliament is based on proportional representation, and the constituencies are divided within the states and the territories based on the population. The main purpose of the legislature is to formulate laws, budgets, bills, etc. for the progress and well-being of the people and nation. The prime minister is the chief representative of the monarch and the government in the house of the legislature and is the leader of the house. They are chosen amongst the elected members of the parliament or by a successful independent campaign. The tenure of the parliament is one year, or as long as His Majesty pleases, and general elections are held every year to elect members.
As the nation follows a variation of the Westminster model of Parliamentary democracy, despite the executive under the monarch playing a largely significant role in the decision-making process, the three pillars of democracy-executive, legislature, and judiciary. The judiciary stands as an independent branch of the system, with the Supreme Court of Blazdonia being the supreme judicial body of Blazdonia and the highest court in the nation. It is the most senior constitutional court and has the power of judicial review. In the Supreme Court, there are a maximum of five (5) justices, one of whom is nominated as Chief Justice. In the lower courts, judges are appointed by the justices and the monarch himself. In some instances, the constitution states that one may be tried by law by the King in court if the situation is of absolute extremity.
Blazdonia's armed forces—the Blazdonian Royal Military—comprise the Royal Blazdonian Navy (RBN), the Blazdonian Royal Army (RBA) and the Royal Blazdonian Air Force (RBAF), in total numbering eight personnel (including six regulars and two reservists) as of July 2022. The titular role of Commander-in-Chief is vested in the Governor-General and shared with the King, who appoints a Chief of the Defence Force from one of the armed services on the advice of the government. New recruits learn at the BDFA before going on active duty after enlistment.
The Kingdom of Blazdonia is a democratic absolute monarchy with a fourteen-member-elected parliament. Elections to the parliament are held once a year to elect the members of the Parliament, who in turn elect the Prime Minister on the command of the majority of the parties in the parliament.

Geography and environment
Blazdonia is a country that is surrounded by Australia and does not border any seas or oceans. It is located in the southern hemisphere, specifically between the latitudes of 27° and 36° South and the longitudes of 153° and 6° East. Because it is landlocked, it does not have direct access to the ocean, which can limit its ability to engage in maritime trade and other activities that require access to the sea. However, being surrounded by Australia may still provide it with some economic and strategic advantages, depending on the relationship between the two countries.
Lying on the Indo-Australian Plate, Blazdonia is on the lowest and most primordial landmass on Earth with a relatively stable geological history. The landmass includes virtually all known rock types and from all geological time periods spanning over 3.8 billion years of the Earth's history. The Pilbara Craton is one of only two pristine Archaean 3.6–2.7 Ga (billion years ago) crusts identified on the Earth.
The climate of Blazdonia is significantly influenced by ocean currents, including the Indian Ocean Dipole and the El Niño–Southern Oscillation, which is correlated with periodic drought, and the seasonal tropical low-pressure system that produces cyclones on the northern Blazdonian border. These factors cause rainfall to vary markedly from year to year. Much of the northern part of the country has a predominantly tropical, predominantly summer-rainfall (monsoon). The south-west corner of the country has a Mediterranean climate. The south-east ranges from oceanic to humid subtropical, with the highlands featuring alpine and subpolar oceanic climates. The interior is arid to semi-arid.
Evergreen trees, particularly eucalyptus trees, predominate in the Blazdonian forests that are found in the less dry sections of the continent. Wattles take their place as the dominating species in the Blazdonian deserts and places that are more arid.
