Bolgajna, officially known as the Rank Republic of Bolgajna, is a secessionist micronation de jure in Hungary, which defines itself as follows: "Our goal is to realize a small utopian community in the wider world, which serves as an antidote to the world's problems. It is a group with a collective cultural identity. A Micronation is traditionally divided into four provinces, each of which consists of additional territories. The state exists as a de facto autonomous zone, as it partly dominates private land, thus it is self-determining in important aspects. For example, in some areas they can regulate the consumption of alcohol while driving, or they can decide who is allowed to enter the sovereign areas.

The state made formal decisions for most of its existence. However, in july of 2022, Bolgajna aims to achieve full independence and recognition. In this way, it presents itself as a sovereign state and often relies on the theory of declarative statehood as the basis of its independence. Regardless, it observes all macronational laws. In addition, he bases several disputes on independence on historical information, for example the short-lived Duchy of Slavonia and the extinct settlement called Bolgánypuszta. The nation's history dates back to its official founding in october of 2014. However, it has only shown serious activation since 2020.

In addition to being a quest for independence, the micronation is also a new cultural movement. The goal is to create a common national and cultural identity that, in addition to connecting a smaller community and thus creating a traditional national identity, forms an accepting and open community. The basic traditional features are typically Central European, but it not only draws from other peoples, but also contains completely new traditions.

Etymology

The name of the rank republic of Bolgajna can be derived from the Bolgánys. The word is a compound word. According to the interpretation accepted today, the first part of the word, "Bolg" refers to Bolgánys. The second part, "Ajna", is a modified version of an ancient Slavic term that can mean country or border. In today's Slovak, a similar word is, for example, krajina. The reason for the occurrence of Slavic words is that the Croats and Slovaks have long been present in northern Transdanubia. By the way, the word Bolgány can be derived from the Kun language, in which it means a swampy marshy area, although in its original form it was written as "balkány", but due to the Bolgány dialect, it was already transformed into Bolgány when the word appeared, probably in the 1400s.

History

Historical affiliations (From the Middle Ages)

History

The i. e. By the 3rd century, the entire area of ​​the Carpathian basin came under the rule of the immigrant Celtic tribes, including Transdanubia, the Great Plain, the territory of today's Slovakia and Transylvania.[1] Some of the peoples of Bolgajna adopted minor cultural traits from the Celts, this is especially characteristic of the Borovicskas. The fifth through eighth centuries, the eastern part of the Carpathian Basin - the Transylvanian Basin, the greater part of the Great Plain and the northern half of the Lesser Plain - was ruled by the Agathurs, referred to as early Scythians. They are known for introducing ironwork and creating a new era in the Carpathian Basin with their new tools (e.g. combat equipment, horse tools).[2]

Pannonia was a province of the Roman Empire. It was bordered on the north and east by the Danube, on the west by Noricum – initially a Celtic kingdom, then a Roman province – and its southern border stretched about 30–50 km south of the Sava River. Its western border - the Borostyánkő út shifted further west over time due to its need for protection and thus became permanent. Its territory includes today's eastern Austria, Slovakia's area around Dévény-Prožany, northern Slovenia, and the southwestern part of the Carpathian Basin, i.e. the western half of Hungary,[3][4] thus also Bolgajna, northern Croatia, a part of northern Serbia (the Macsó district and the Szerzemség district of Vojvodina) and the northern part of Bosnia-Herzegovina.[5]

For a century, the territory of the Carpathian basin was dominated by the tribes of the Goths, Heruli, Gepids and Lombards. In the year 567, the Avars who emigrated from Central Asia took possession of the area and held it for about 250 years. Most of the Germanic tribes fled to Italy. (The name of the province of Lombardy comes from the name of the Lombards who settled on the Po plain.) The majority of the Gepids who owned the Upper Tisza region did not leave the Carpathian basin, becoming vassals of the Avars. In a few hundred years, they mixed with their masters, just like the Scythian Alans and other peoples living here.[6]

Formed at the beginning of the Middle Ages, Moravia was the first major, predominantly West Slavic state to emerge in Central Europe, possibly including areas that are now part of many countries. Although Bolgajna does not form a Slavic identity, according to its claim, it is a kind of cultural predecessor. Later, after the conquest, around 895, the Principality of Hungary was founded, and its state status gradually developed during its century-long existence. It existed until the foundation of the Kingdom of Hungary in 1001, which is its legal successor through its ruling house. The kingdom was established as a form of government with the coronation of István I in the Carpathian Basin. Significant changes took place in Hungary in the 13th century. Many provincial lords proclaimed their own states, some of which were recognized. In most of Western Hungary, an oligarch named Henrik Köszegi administered his own state. Many consider it a medieval predecessor of Bolgajna. Between 1867 and 1918, a special, dual (dualist) state, or more precisely, a federation of states, was created in Central Europe. This was the Austro-Hungarian monarchy. This period was very turbulent in Hungary. In the twentieth century Hungary was under socialist leadership. Bolgánypuszta, the historical capital of Bolgajna, was still inhabited at that time.

the first written records that expressly mention the Bolgány dialect and people come from this period. Among other things, the last mention of the word Bolgány in the mid-1800s, the first accurate description of the Szigetközian-Bolgány dialect from 1907 and the first photograph from the capital of Bolgajna in 1925. these were the written memories that mostly legitimized the sovereignty rights of the people of Bolgajna in Hungary. Before Bolgajna's research, not much emphasis was placed on researching the topic. It is written in historical documents that the people of Szigetköz had autonomy between the 1600s and the 1800s, several times for different reasons, sometimes because of the Pannonhalmian Abbey and sometimes because of a higher authority. Also, we can also find texts in archives that contain Bolgány names, most of which are of Slovak, Hungarian, Hebrew, German and other origins. The largest builder of the capital of Bolgajna was Ernő Schreiner, a farmer with Danube Swabian origin. To this day, no pictorial evidence can be found about him, but he is mentioned in numerous contemporary articles. Streets in Bolgajna were also named after Schreiner.

Bolgajna was established as a sovereign state in 2014. The country was founded by three brothers: Mihály Gerhát, Márton Gerhát, Éva Sára Gerhát and a close friend of theirs, György Papp Bertalan. The original members, Bolgajna, adopted the Rank Republic as their official form of government and began to recruit citizens for the liberation movement. Mihály Gerhát and Márton Gerhát became the official leaders of the nation.

At that time, the territory of the new state was still quite small, only a tiny tip of the southern part of Szigetköz being the current capital. This building was called the Laboratórium. Industry and agriculture did not exist, they only utilized their existing resources.

After the country stabilized its territory, it began to recruit new citizens. It was then that the Bulgarian community began to reorganize. they also started holding the first community events. The territory of Bolgajna began to grow at that time, Thury, Pórfayz and Nosztré were also annexed at that time. Bolgajna has already precisely set and defined its goal that it plans to create a self-sufficient community that can serve as a center for many types of discourse.

After Bolgajna expanded its territories, it immediately began to expand with settlements that would develop Bolgajna from a cultural point of view. The leadership of the provinces was entrusted to the provincial leaders, who were appointed as rulers. After the state order was consolidated, the need to join the nation began to increase, so at that time Bolgajna's citizenship was expanded by 23 members.

In the predecessor state of Bolgajna, a possible variation of the national name came up as early as 2021. At the time, this was rejected by the majority. At that time, the idea that provincial leaders should be democratically elected was still a radical idea. At that time, the so-called Osztróvian breakthrough began, which refers to the rapid development of Osztróvia. This process started in the Labor (the capital of Bolgajna). Services began to increase, more tourist attractions were built, and trade began.[7][8] Especially in 2022, the forest areas (Csinád, Tágút, Cserpang area) were included in the economy, and the number of services was increased there as well. Bolgajna began to invest less and less in the war, instead he built new buildings. Later, Osztróvia was expanded territorially towards the west, the Cserpang area was increased to twenty-one times its area at that time (this meant significant economic development), so it became the second largest area of ​Osztróvia from one of the smallest areas. In addition, two new areas were added, Csünterdü and Somosajja. Smaller developments took place in Pórfayz. While the province of Thury has developed a lot in terms of internet services. Thury's own website became available. In Nosztre, there were record low harvests, although it still supported the other provinces (with the exception of Osztróvia, which was already self-sufficient) economically. Nosztre has retained its character as a tourist paradise. On the "riviera of Bolgajna" that year, 40 percent of the population spent part of their vacation here. The first large-scale cultural celebrations also took place in 2022. On the eighth Independence Day, there were several days of events in Osztróvia. 2022 In autumn and winter, all provinces began to develop rapidly. In January 2023, the ancestral council met in Pórfayz. Of the four founding members, Éva Sára Gerhát, Márton Gerhát, György Papp Bertalan and Mihály Gerhát were all present. The demand for a system change was already very high.[9]

Many significant reforms were introduced, the most important of which were the name change and the announcement of provincial leadership elections. This month saw the first elections in the provinces. At that time, the presidents were based in Pórfayz, while György Papp Bertalan went to the province of Thury for the campaign period. They announced that there would be new elections four month. In Pórfayz, there was a lot of competition between the then provincial leader László Benedek and the other candidate László Magda. All along, the estimates were that Benedek László had a better chance, but in the end, after a big surprise, Magda László won with a 61 percent majority. In Thury, György Bertalan Papp won the elections, so there was no change of leadership in Thury. There were no more candidates in Nosztre, so the then representative Szauer József won the elections. In Osztróvia, Éva Sára Gerhát won with a decisive majority (82 percent) against the other candidate, Ádám Salda. The new provincial leaders Sára Gerhát,Magda László and György Bertalan Papp formed an economomic alliance. Papp Bertalan György soon started to form coalitions which soon included all independent candidates. With this, Bertalan's power in the province increased significantly. After the elections, very significant developments took place in the provinces, especially in Pórfayz, where a lot of infrastructural development took place. From the first of January 2023,[10] Bolgajna was the de facto name of the state, while this name was already made official on the twenty-third of January.

In the era of Bolgajna's development, the organization began to spread its existence to foreigners and citizens alike. Among others, the Bolgajna Camp, which was one of Europe's first micronations-themed camps with more than 20 full participants. In addition, the bicycle race called Bolgajna körök was held, which was almost a week-long event and covered approximately 220 kilometers. In addition, many services have become available for citizens, including locally made souvenirs, their own TV studio and discussion and debate forum days. Bolgajna has already become well-known regionally, since in 6 months more than 45,000 people saw its Google advertisement and more than 23,000 people searched for Bolgajna, and more than 100 people also viewed it on other media platforms.

Important ethnicities

In Central Europe, the Bolgánys are a small ethnic group living in the Carpathian Basin, primarily in Northern Transdanubia. The mother tongue of the Bolgánys is Hungarian, but with an individual dialect. Bolgánys outside the borders are the Bolgánys diaspora, which forms a significant ethnic group in only a few settlements. The Bolgánys were the state-creators and most important people of the Rank Republic of Bolgajna. Henceforth, it is theorized that the Principality of Slavonia was the first Bolgány state to cease in 1310.

Religions

Bolgajna basically did not introduce a state religion and does not intend to. Most of the people in the Central and Nosztre provinces are atheists, while in the Pórfayz and Thury provinces Catholics are in the majority. In the entire country, 25% are religious (all are Catholic Christians).

Economy

Economy of Bolgajna Industrial-consumer economy. The economy is autonomous, but significant quantities of products are imported from Slovakia, Austria and Hungary. According to Bolgajna's calculations, it is a micronational regional economic power and a global economic middle power. Many smaller micronations depend on Bolgajna's economy for their economy, the Duchy of Denbuie, and the Paradise Island Duchy are completely dependent on Bolgajna's production. Bolgajna is the most significant micronational economy of the Carpathian Basin.

The quality of life in Bolgajna is good by world standards. According to a survey by the Bolgány government, more than 70% of citizens work in Bolgajna. Many people also work in neighboring Hungary.

Bolgajna produces more goods than it consumes. They are stored in significant quantities, which is why the economy can use more and more raw materials every year.

Agriculture

Agriculture in Bolgajna is also significant at the micronational level. They are mainly produced in Nosztre Province, and Osztóvia. The most produced crops are grapes and pumpkins. About 250 kilograms of grapes are produced annually. Pumpkin production is usually around 150 kilograms per year. The area producing the most is the Nosztre Lowlands area, followed by the Central area. In recent years, after 2020, the production of all Provinces has been increasing or stagnating, except for Osztóvia, where production is increasing year by year. Peppers, tomatoes and strawberries are grown in the province of Thury. About 3 kg per year. The annual production of Pórfayz insignificant. Most of the plants produced are processed in Bolgajna, and a smaller part is sold in neighboring countries. Most of the plants produced are food, followed by ornamental plants and then fodder plants.

Meat processing

Meat processing is significant in Osztróvia and Pórfayz. Meat processing accounts for more than 15% of the entire economy of Bolgajna. Pigs are mainly processed. In Osztróvia, several farm buildings are involved in the works. Meat processing usually takes place in the winter, so it only functions as a temporary job opportunity. The entire winter production comes from this. The pigs intended for processing are raised in Hungary and the processed meat is also smoked there, so this part of the economy is largely dependent on Hungary.

Mining

In Bolgajna, mining is negligible in all provinces except Thury amd Pórfayz. Although there is an opportunity for sand and gravel mining in Osztróvia, this opportunity is not being used. There is an opportunity for clay mining in Nosztre, but due to the dry soil, this is also an unused opportunity. Stone was mined in bigger quantities, more than 11kg. Stone was It produces 10 kilograms per year in Pórfayz. Mined values ​​are usually processed within range.

Currency, payments

Bolgajna uses the Hungarian forint. The introduction of an independent micronational currency has been suggested several times, but it would be difficult to consolidate its use for the time being. The salaries are considered low, but many people also work abroad in order to increase their wages.

The national dish is Ébrencs, which is a pie-like dish. The national drink is fekker, originally from the Osztróvian bolgánys. The regional national drink of the Pórfayz province is rosehip honey tea, which is called borbuna there. In the Nosztre province, the seasoning is more Mediterranean, with thyme, lavender and rosemary being the most common spices. The folk drink of Nosztre is Kakkukfekker, which is a thyme sweet drink. Thury province folk drink is Mirabolán szörp and folk food is Meatsoup.

Legislation

Hierarchy

constitution, law, provincial decree, territorial decree.

What is written in the constitution can only be amended in very rare cases, while laws can be amended more easily by what rules are written about them in the national assembly. Provincial decrees are laws that are only valid in the territory of the given province. This can be decided not only by the provincial leadership, but also by the national assembly, and it can be amended later. Such are, for example, taxation within the provinces and the right to trade. Provincial legislation determines the autonomy of the Provinces. Territorial rules are much rarer than this. This is also decided by the national assembly, except in the autonomous regions, where the local population can vote on this. In most cases, these are not decisive or important laws, although they may even be at the provincial level in the autonomous regions.

Governments that recognize Bolgajna's independence

All such recognition makes the relationship between nations mutual. The nation pursues a progressive foreign policy, which is why it maintains relations not only for the sake of signing a contract, but also for the sake of national cooperation.

Bolgajna does not start wars, nor does it recognize micronational conflicts. Nevertheless, it has an army, but only for ceremonial purposes. Bolgajna recognizes micronations where appropriate, but not their governments if it believes that the nation does not comply with the above-mentioned human rights institutions. Although Bolgajna welcomes the Montevideo convention on constitutive statehood, he also supports the recognition of macro-nations for development reasons. Hungary, as it limits Bolgajna's sovereignty, does not recognize a part of its territory or its government temporarily.
