The Kingdom of Bregotte (Bregotten: Regni di Bregotta), referred colloquially as Bregotte, is a self-proclaimed sovereign state, commonly known as a micronation by external observers. Located in South England, it claims territory in the counties of Sussex and Essex. Bregotte is a monarchy, with King Sebastian I being the reigning monarch, and with Archduke Dominic I as the Chief Councillor of the Royal Council. The capital and the largest city is Pagus d'Odo, which houses the King. Bregotte has three official languages, English; Bregotten; and Latin, as well as three scheduled languages; Italian, French and Spanish.
Bregotte was founded on May 10, 2021 by Finlay Stovell and Calder Claydon. It was created in protest to the historical bias against Roman Catholics in the United Kingdom. Finlay Stovell was crowned as King Sebastian I on May 10, 2021.
System of Governance
The Government of Bregotte is separated into two branches, being the Royal Council and the Throne. The Royal Council is headed, and her councillors appointed, by current Chief Councillor Archduke Dominic I. The Royal Council meets and proposes new decrees. Such decrees must then be approved by the Chief Councillor, and then must be vetted by the King. If given Royal Approval, legally called Approvacapu, it is codified into law. Legislature can also be created directly by the King, and codified into law without the consultation of the Royal Council, but must at least be shown to the Chief Councillor.
The Royal Council is headed by Archduke Dominic I.
Religion and Spirituality
Bregotte is, by law, a Roman Catholic state. While this is the state religion, the majority of citizens are agnostic, or deistic. It follows Catholic moral teaching, in law, about how a country should be run. The patron saint is St. Francis of Assisi.
