Before Yermolino became a state, there were three large settlements on its territory - Yermolino, Nekrasovsky and Trudovaya. The reason for the withdrawal of Yermolino from Russia was the people's dissatisfaction with the current situation in the settlements and the formation of the monarchy in these territories. On January 2, 2022 (now it is a public holiday - Independence Day), the declaration of independence of Yermolino was signed, and after that the kingdom began its sovereign existence. Artemij I proclaimed himself monarch . A week later, on January 10, 2022, by the forces of the Constituent Assembly and the monarch, the first elections of deputies to the Royal Sejm (now the Royal Parliament) were held in the history of Ermolino.

On March 7, at the initiative of Ermolino, the Dmitrov League was established - a non-military international organization that unites micronations with territorial waters in the Moscow-Volga Canal (Moscow Canal).

Election campaigns of the Yermolino Kingdom
Parliamentary elections in Yermolino of the first convocation
Immediately after the appearance of the Yermolino statehood, the question of the formation of a higher legislative authority arose. It was clear that the constituent Assembly would not be able to perform these functions for a long time. Already on January 5 (3 days after the formation of Yermolino) a decree on the appointment of parliamentary elections was signed. In 5 days, parties were created, candidates were nominated and polling stations were prepared.
The voting was conducted in two ballots - parties and candidates. The list of parties that entered the first round: the Christian Democratic Forum, the Workers' and Peasants' Patriotic People's Party, the Ermolinsky department of the BPNGO, the Andreevist Renaissance Party, the Christian Concordat, the Party of Love and Kindness. According to the results, only the top 2 parties with the following allocation of seats were elected to Parliament: the first place - 3 seats, the second - 1 place.
The candidates competed very much with each other. And by the results of the First round, it turned out that candidates Valery Vodolagin and Mikhail Andreev shared one place with each other. Then it was decided to hold the second round, where the exact separation of the first from the second was already found out.
The turnout for the first round was 100%.
Only two candidates participated in the second round. Valery Vodolagin and Mikhail Andreev. Until the very end, it was difficult to figure out who exactly would win. Voting was tense. As a result, Mikhail Andreev won with twice as many votes as Valery Vodolagin.
The turnout for the second round was 55%.
Yermolino's relations with other states
Republic of Avinenska
The Republic of Avinenska is one of two fraternal micronations for Yermolino. The President of the republic, Demyan Karpov, was originally a curator and was a member of the constituent assembly of the kingdom. In early April 2022, King of In April, Ermolino set a course for unity with Avignon and the creation of a Union State with it. assisted Avinenska in promoting ID cards on the territory of Avinenska by releasing the first physical carrier of this card on his own and organizing their production. On April 7, an agreement on the establishment of diplomatic relations was signed. But, on the initiative of Demyan Karpov himself and with the assistance of the King, a declaration on the further unity of Yermolino with Avinenska was signed on April 10. After signing the declaration, an agreement on the regulation of dual citizenship issues was signed. Then, on the same April 10, Yermolino and Avinenska signed another declaration – on the creation of the union. President of Avinenska expressed special gratitude afterwards and stated that in the long term, great cooperation in all areas is possible. Now another declaration on the creation of the Union state is being developed, but so far, both sides refrain from commenting on this topic.
The Esgeldian Tsardom is the second fraternal micronation to Yermolino. Tsar of Esgeldsia, like President of Avinenska, had membership in the constituent assembly of Yermolino. King Yermolino firmly believes that without the Es Guild, there would be no Yermolino. On March 24, 2022, an agreement on the establishment of diplomatic relations was signed with Esgeldia, as a small formality in the further unity of Yermolino with Esgeldia. The king of Yermolino also awarded the Esgeldian Tsar with the Highest Order of St. Yuri Dolgoruky and promised to present the award personally. The presence of Esgeldia can also be noticed in the economy of Yermolino. Alexander Kuzmin is the director of the Central Bank of Ermolino. In the future, even closer cooperation with the Guild is expected.
League of Independent States
Yermolino had membership in the League from the very beginning of its micronational path, initially as an observer, and later as a full participant. Membership in the LNG emphasized the image of Yermolino from the very beginning, leaving the Kingdom on the right path and teach it to distinguish non-donation from micronation. The LNG has mentoring functions for the Kingdom, and the contribution of the organization is also invaluable.
