Republic of Pengua
The Republic of Pengua is a micronation located in the municipality of Ensenada, Mexico. The Republic of Pengua emerged from the unification between the Republic of Gololandia and the Principality of Pengua in January 2021.
The Catholic Republic of Espinoza (1926-1929)
The Republic of Espinoza was established as a micronation in La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico, initiated by Espinoza 1st great-great-grandfather, Wenceslao Espinoza. This action took place in response to the policies implemented by Plutarco Elias Calles, which resulted in a severe restriction of religious practices in the country.
The creation of this micronation aimed to safeguard the fundamental rights and freedoms of its citizens, including the freedom of religion, which were threatened by the laws imposed by Calles' central government. The Republic of Espinoza stood as a symbol of resistance and autonomy, where democratic principles and community values were cherished and promoted.
By establishing this political entity, Espinoza I's great-great-grandfather expressed his desire to build a place where diversity of beliefs and religious plurality were respected and celebrated. The Republic of Espinoza sought to foster inclusive and constructive dialogue among all religious communities, recognizing that freedom of conscience and mutual respect are essential elements for peaceful and harmonious coexistence in society.
Through its autonomy and commitment to social justice, the Republic of Espinoza became a beacon of hope for those longing for a more inclusive and tolerant political environment. This political act and the foundation of the micronation reflect the importance of safeguarding individual rights and cultural diversity within a democratic system, while respecting the basic principles of equality and justice for all citizens.
Cristero War (1926-1929)
In the hypothetical scenario of a potential military aggression by the Mexican army, the Republic of Espinoza had only three individuals designated to safeguard its integrity. These representatives were the illustrious Wenceslao Espinoza, who held the position of president, Ramona Lucero, distinguished as the first lady of the nation, and Tumbalo, recognized as the emblematic dog of the nation. Fortunately, such a war confrontation never took place, which allowed for the preservation of peace and stability in the region.
Subsequently, with the cessation of hostilities, the Republic of Espinoza made the decision to dissolve itself due to the repeal of the policies promoted by Plutarco Elías Calles. This determination was based on the willingness to adapt to a new normative context, seeking progress and harmony within a transformed legal framework.
In October 2017, the creation of a new political entity called Monarca began by two 10-year-old children. This initiative involved the participation of six volunteer citizens who joined the project. Over the course of a few days, the young rulers, known as Monellini 3rd and Ángel 1st, organized Monarca's armed forces. In a short period of two weeks, Monarca had already gained some notoriety as a micronation. However, tensions arose between the young leaders, specifically Monellini 3rd, who experienced feelings of jealousy regarding power sharing with Ángel 1st. In response to these feelings, Monellini 3rd proclaimed himself King and the sole ruler of Monarca. As a result of this event, an internal dispute known as the Monarca Civil War erupted when Ángel 1st discovered that Monarca's banknotes were in poor condition. This situation led to the division of Monarca's territory, with a portion of it declaring independence as a result of the civil war. During its brief existence of three days, the Kingdom of Monarca faced significant challenges in terms of its governance. A considerable segment of the new citizens, specifically four out of eight, expressed themselves through the use of armed force, giving rise to the formation of the so-called Anarchist Liberation Army of Monarca. This event marked the beginning of the Monarca Anarchist War, a conflict that concluded with the disappearance of Monarca in November 2017.
Communist Republic of Gololandia and Principality of Pengua (May 6, 2020 - January 12, 2021)
On May 6, 2020, the Republic of Gololandia and the Principality of Pengua were established, created by the previously known Ángel 1st. This entity, classified as a micronation, decided to join an international organization, from which it withdrew after three months. During that period, the micronation had limited presence, mainly focused on war declarations. However, the turning point came when an Empire decided to invade the micronation, resulting in the latter's defeat and transformation into a protectorate. In November 2020, the micronation regained its independence, adopting a new, more serious approach and redefining its purpose.
