The Republic of New Melanesia is a micronation hoping to develop in the Indispensable Reefs in the Solomon Islands. The nation dates back to early 2021 as the New Melanesia Project.
Project Period (26 January 2021 - 13 July 2022)
The Republic was initially established as the New Melanesia Project. It was established by members of United Vuaqava and The Socialist States of Tinakula.
The project aimed to make a nation known as New Melanesia by populating the Indispensable Reefs, by building towns on stilt houses, as well as wooden pathways, ports and markets, with 3 towns with a population of 500 and 6 with a population of 150.
Due to a large number of members leaving and the project falling inactive Luke of Wellmoore inherited the project from the previous project leader so he decided to start reforming the project in hopes to make it a better functioning, active micronation.
Republic Establishment (13 July 2022 - 23 July 2022)
On 13 July 2022 Luke of Wellmoore formally established the Republic of New Melanesia to succeed the New Melanesia Project. New Melanesia was re-established as a parliamentary republic and as a micronation, over just a project.
During this time entities such as the Assembly of the Republic, the Presidency and Council of Ministers where established.
Dictatorship Period (23 July 2022 - Present)
On 23 July 2022, Luke of Wellmoore proclaimed himself as Dictator of New Melanesia. His reasoning behind this was due to a lack of citizens so general elections were out of the picture and the nation was underdeveloped. He claims during his time as dictator he will work on developing the nation and growing the population so elections will be able to be hosted in the future.
Government and Politics
The nation is a parliamentary republic. The primary legislature of the nation is the Assembly of the Republic, a unicameral parliament.
The president serves as the nation's head of state. Typically the president isn't engaged as much in the day-to-day running of the nation, but holds similar powers to that of the President of Castile.
The prime minister, the head of government, the Assembly of the Republic and the Council of Ministers do the general management and legislation over the republic. The prime minister is appointed by the president but is typically the leader of the largest party elected to the assembly of the republic. Members of the council of ministers are also appointed by the president but usually on the advice of the prime minister.
As of 23 July 2022 the nation has been under a dictatorship with the President and Prime Minister wielding significant power over the nation.
