The People's Revolutionary Republic of Yusienia, formerly named as Republic of Amazonia, is an independent sovereign state in South Europe. It was founded in December 2020 by Aurora Twinkle. Amazonia was the name given to the nation when it was founded, with Amazonis Planitia on Mars as its principal region. Amazonia handed its land to the earth in December 2021 and eventually became a country on the planet. As a result, the country's name was altered to Yuhsienia in February 2022, and later to Yusienia according to phonetics.
Yusienia is a tiny landlocked nation with a de-facto controlled area of 1556 square metres. Yusienia's de-facto controlled territory lies north-east of Athens, Greece's capital, and it has no permanent population; Yusienia's citizens live on the territory of other macronations.
Yusienia is a member of the Mediterranean Cooperation Council and the International Republics Alliance.
The name "Yusienia" comes from the Mandarin word "雨仙" for "rain fairy" or "fairy of the rain". Why it is called this weird name has been difficult to verify, this name was gradually formed and preserved during the development of the country.
According to a folk etymology created by Twinkle, the name originates from "Yo Siena!" (Siena is an Italian city)
The name can also written as Yoosenia.
In June 2020, Guo Wengui founded New Federal State of China(designated as a terrorist group by Yusienia), this inspired Twinkle to build a micronation, and she set about to find a territory. In December, Twinkle turned to finding territory on Mars, Amazonis Planitia was soon chosen as the territory of the micronation.
Republic of Amazonia and the first autocracy (December 2020 - January 2022)
For establishing a country, Twinkle formed a secret society "Stadt Schleswig 2.0" on 28 December 2020, this society became the precursor to the nowadays Yusienian state. Very few relics and records remain of this secret society, making the early history of Yuhsienia confusing. Then the society unilaterally declared independence from Federated States of Martian Olympus under the name "Amazonistan", with Twinkle as head of state. The same day, the nation established diplomatic relations with the Republic of Jŭmina and Urbo de Sophia. The name "Republic of Amazonia" was chosen on 3 January 2021.
The political system in the early days of Amazonia was almost absolute monarchy. As for why the country was not named a kingdom, Twinkle said "it is too tiring to hold a coronation ceremony."
On 5 March 2021, Twinkle established a cabinet with three ministries: the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Treasury and the Ministry of National Defense. Twinkle appointed Hilja-Sinikka Iltanen as Minister of Treasury, and Hemerocalli Crystalli, her original character, as Minister of Foreign Affairs. Hemerocalli's position was reserved until Amazonia signed the Wrythe Convention, this position was removed to avoid sockpuppeting allegations.
Twinkle started to draft the Constitution of Amazonia on 10 March 2021, she organised a Constituent Assembly, and the Kelowna Draft was released on 14 May. However, after the release of the draft, Twinkle declared that a single written constitution that was difficult to change was not suitable for Amazonia. On June 28, Vân Tinh announced the end of the constitutional process and that the Constituent Assembly was to be dissolved.
The declaration of independence of Amazonia was signed on 9 August 2021, which declared that the Republic of Amazonia was an independent sovereign state.
After that, the government consolidated its rule, and the President disbanded the National Assembly and converted it into the Great Althing as a new legislature council, the president and cabinet members are ex-officio members of it.
On 10 September, Twinkle announced the establishment of the Territory of Amazonistan, which is all the Martian territory of Amazonia, and designated it as the new legal capital, but the government is still based in cyber territory of Picafloria for a while until December, then the executive center moved to Nea Emesa.
The Yusien nation was created in late 2021, the national symbol was identified, and these innovations were called Amazonian national awakening, also known as the first Yusienian national awakening. The leaders of this national awakening are Victor, Sophia Swan, Hilja Illtanen and others. The first Yusienian national awakening marked the birth of the Yusienian nation.
Amazonia acceded the Wrythe Convention on 28 October.
In the few months that followed, Amazonia's economy, trade, and culture flourished rapidly. This prosperous era became a prelude to future oligarchic reforms.
The Nea Emesa night assault, an expansionist invasion, was operated by Amazonia in Deccember 2021 with the goal of occupying a territory on earth. The occupied territory was named Nea Emesa, and became the new capital city and cultural and political center in 12 December 2021. On 28 December, Amazonia celebrated it's first national anniversary.
Constitutional oligarchy (January 2022 - April 2022)
President Aurora Twinkle write a new constitution in December 2021, This constitution abolished the personalist dictatorship and introduced a oligarchic system, it marks the end of the Amazonia's first autocratic era and the beginning of the oligarchic era. The new constitution established two main government agencies, the Secretariate and the Censorate. The Secretariate assists the President, similar to a Cabinet, while the Censorate does monitoring, auditing, investigation, impeachment, inspection, and intelligence. The President is the head of state and has no term limit. The Signoria controls most of the power, therefore, it can be regarded as an oligarchy, but government rule was more ceremonial, so for political scientists the political system of Yusienia could be Anarchy. The Grand Chancellor was the leader of the Signoria. There is a National Assembly, the President and cabinet were ex-officio members, other seats were nominated by the Princess or elected. The Signoria was the most important central government agency of Yusienia, controlled executive power, legislative power and part of judicial power. The Princess had the power to decide national affairs, but the promulgation of new laws and the revision of the constitution all required the vote of the Signoria. The Censorate was the main supervisory, auditory and security agency, holds the power of supervision, inspection, investigation, and intelligence work. The National Assembly was advocacy and does not hold legislative power but elects the next president after the current president abdicates. Any legal party member was a member of the National Assembly.
Amazonia signed the Augusta Accord on 18 January 2022. At the beginning of 2022, a series of cultural reforms have been carried out. An executive order was issued on 7 February 2022, announcing that the country's name would be changed to "Yuhsienia". Following Twinkle's research on phonetics, the name eventually became "Yusienia". On 3 March, a major constitutional amendment was unanimously passed by the Signoria. This amendment changed the title of the head of state from "President" to "Princess", although the title "President" is still used informally. From this point on, Twinkle started to use the princess title. In addition, this constitutional amendment also changed the first verse of the national anthem and the national emblem, making the country more in line with the image of a terran country. On 15 April, the Mohist Party was formed, de facto replacing the Yusienian National Progressive Democratic Socialist Revolutionary Action Congress for Prosperity and Justice as the ruling party.
The second autocracy (April 2022 - November 2022)
On 29 Apirl 2022, The princess abolished the constitution and took all legislative, executive and judicial powers. She began rule by decree, strengthening centralization and dictatorship. This led to protests and political instability, particularly Andrew Papadopoulos, who is the Grand Chancellor, who raised very strong objections to the Princess's unconstitutionality, he prepared to fill a lawsuit, proposed the Constitutional Court to try the princess, but no one was the judge at the time. this incident is known as the May Incident.
Why did you abolish the constitution without asking me? I am the Chancellor and you have to inform me! We are going to the Courts!— Andrew Papadopoulos
The protests did not last long and the constitution was successfully repealed. At this time, government officials lost most of their power, and the princess spent most of her working time thinking about her new name and designing Yusienia's new flag.
A cultural movement started in May called second Yusienian national awakening. Unlike the First Yusienian national awakening which involved many people, politicians and artists, this national awakening was carried out by the princess alone. The second Yusienian national awakening took the spear of Athena, the symbol of Pallas, as the symbol of Yusienian people, changed the national flag, and determined the national colors and more national symbols. This national awakening enriched Yusienian culture. On 30 June, the official country name was officially announced as People's Revolutionary Republic of Yusienia. Since July 2022, Yusienia is stable and gradually coming close to become an one person state. The hispanization of Yusienia begins in sutumn 2022, Twinkle's learning of Spanish has led to Yusienia's embrace of more Spanish and Latin American culture. In early November 2022, Twinkle proposed the idea of democratizing reforms. A Constitutional National Assembly was established and election were prepared. Overall, The Second Autocracy was a relatively inactive period.
In diplomacy, Yusienia began to implement stricter gatekeeping, only countries with considerable seriousness and "brick and mortar" can be recognized by Yusienia.
In terms of internal affairs, Yusienia carried out citizenship reforms, revoking the citizenship of all citizens who did not actually live in Yusienia. Through such reforms, Yusienia achieved a direct democracy in winter 2022.
Direct Democracy (November 2022 -)
In November to December 2022, Yusienia made drastic reforms to eliminate corruption and social problems. The release of the November 7th act was a major turning point, and from this date onwards, the only citizen of Yusienia was Twinkle, completely making Yusienia an egostan, although other former citizens retained a token honorary e-citizenship. In December, the flag-changing drama finally settled down to three designs that were being used equally. SYKO's dominance at Revolutionary Congress stabilizes. The stability of the political situation has enabled Yusienia to embark on the road of innovation and development again, basically returning to the prosperity in the winter of 2021. Yusienia's population increases to 3 people on New Year's eve of 2022. With the new members, in the first few months of 2023, although Twinkle want to organize the first Central Revolutionary Congress meeting, the meeting was not implemented. She hopes to organize the first meeting after the country reaches a population of five or more.

A tiny fortress called Elagabalupolis (Kathareousa: Ηλιογαβαλούπολη) is standing in the center of Nea Emesa. According to the Köppen Climate Classification system, Nea Emesa has a warm-summer Mediterranean climate.
In the beginning of the third autocracy, Yusienia implemented a presidential system and a nominal separation of powers, with the main power in the hands of the princess. Yusienia is a unitary state. Prefectures are set up under the country. The country has a Signory, and each prefecture has a Revolutionary Committee. Currently Yusienia has only one Prefecture, Nea Emesa Prefecture, which is the capital of the country.
The princess is the supreme leader, head of state and government, the legislature is the unicameral Central Revolutionary Congress, the executive agency is the Revolutionary Signory. Currently Yusienia has no valid constitution.

The draft law is first proposed and considered by Congress, and then forwarded to the princess for signature. The law vetoed by the princess will go back to Congress for reconsideration and voting. If Congress passes it again with a two-thirds majority, the law can be passed without the princess's signature. The draft law proposed by the princess will be voted on by Congress and will come into force after the speaker signs it.
After the NNSOA dissolved, Aurora frequently reorganized its party several times, and in September 2022 proposed a party formation plan called the Liberal Republican Movement, but the party has not been formally established. Later, the Constitutional Party was established and is now the ruling party and the only political party.

In some suitable rooms, Yusienians may use pixie lights and cushions, pillows, etc. to create a cosy resting space.
