The Principality of Blueacia (Blueacian: Prinsdom Blauasia) is a tiny island state in the Pacific Ocean.

The Principality of Blueacia has been around since its independence from the Morstaybishlian Empire on March 26th, 1970. It is the smallest country on Urth, at just 50 square kilometers. The small island state is known for its low taxes and lots of casinos. Due to this and the weather Blueacia is a well visited holliday spot not only by the rich and famous but also by the normal people. The most famous of these opened on the 25th birthday of the first Prince of Blueacia, Harmeus Constantine, and was the first casino to open its doors in the country. After his death on the March 5th, 2001, the Casino renamed itself the H.C. Casino in honour of the first Prince.


History

Salovia

Bla bla, something something.

Caltharus

Independence

On October 23 1975 Tivot and Blueacia held a referendum to stay in Salovia or to gain independence, seeing the historical position of Blueacia the local refendum in the city had, next to the options "Stay in Salovia" and "Join Tivot in the independence" a third option sometimes called the "Go Solo" option. The results cam back as:

"Salovia" 15%

"Tivot" 40%

"Blueacia" 45%

After this Blueacia started to work on getting ready to become independent. Discussions were held with Caltharus and Tivot the new neigbours of the new to form nation. On January 1st Blueacia alongside Tivot gained it's independence

Geography

Blueacia is on the Aequator and is close to the international dateline, which makes it one of the first countries to experience the new year. Due to its proximity to the Aequator, Blueacia has a tropical climate. Being an island, the climate is more bearable due to the wind which is blowing everyday to the east.

Labia Cue, the only city in Blueacia, is home to 60% of the population.

Goverment

House of Constantine

The ruling dynasty of this small country is the House of Constantine. They came into power when the Treaty of Independence was signed between Lambertus VII of Staynes and Harmadeus of Blueacia.
Prince Harm Constatine (1970-1999)
Prince Vermillius Constantine (current Prince of Blueacia)
Giovanni Constantine (current Heir of Blueacia)

Unlike other principalities, the title of the Prince doesn't pass from the reigning Prince to his oldest son or daughter. The Prince instead selects his successor from his children, with age not playing a factor.

The common speculation is that Prince Vermillius Constantine is going to abdicate within five years. After his divorce with Princess Gaetane D'Aubigné, it is said that he no longer considers himself fit for the position. Despite Gaetane losing her position of Princess due to their divorce, and the Prince being remarried. Vermillius still reveres to Gaetane as Princess as if she retained the title.

The Parlement building of Blueacia

Parlement

The goverment of Blueacia consists of the Twadde Keamer, the legislative branch, and the Earste Keamer, the judicial branch. The Twadde Keamer housed 85 seats from 1970 to 2000, when it became 102 seats because of a change in the constitution. After the the elections of 2018 the seats slinked back to 85 agian. De Twadde Keamer makes the laws, and includes a cabinet of secretaries. The people of Blueacia vote for their representatives on the Twadde Keamer in a democratic election, who then vote on the members of the Earste Keamer. The Earste Keamer consists of 25 seats. Should a bill pass the Twadde Keamer, the members of the Earste Keamer examine the bill for inconsistencies between it and the constitution, and correct the ones they finds. After passing the Earste Keamer, the Prince gets the final say whether or not it passes. Should he approve, it is signed and ratified. If not, the bill is vetoed.

Ever since the change of the duration of the cabinet in 1973 at least one of the two parties KritsenUny or FFD has been in the goverment with this being the 4th time both are in the goverment. Before the change the 3 orriginal parties all got 28 or 29 seats of the 85 seats and the last one was filled by an extra of the then ruling party. After the three parties all had a change to lead the country for a year they knew the system had to change or the country wasn't a democartcy. After 3 years the first elections were helled and a cabinet could stay 5 years in office if they remained the majority in the Twadde Keamer. out of the 11 cabinets after the change 6 cabinets didn't made it the whole way trough.

Foreign Relations

Countries in Aurora

in the treaties of the ACA you can find everything regarding to relations between the countries

Staynes

the relationship with Staynes is good but sometimes a little tense. this because They are the old rulers of the island and some Blueacians are still worried that Staynes might consider re-claming the island. Blueacia on the other hand is very dependent on Staynes, they are the most important partner in trade and military.

Caltharus

eventhough Staynes is Blueacia's most important ally, the people and goverment prefer to contact Caltharus rather than Staynes and to do business with Caltharus. this of course is because Caltharus never was the ruling country over Blueacia.

Due to the history of Blueacia, That the people didn't want to get involved in any wars anymore the country has not an active military. They have a ceremonial army of 41 men. The army is used to protect the Palace of the Royal family, and some other important buildings. During the national hollidays the army is part of the security. During the National Parade of the Blueacian Combined Forces the army opens the parade. The number 41 is specially chosen for the army, and so the army won't get any bigger. It's the exact number of soldiers who can sleep in 1 hall of the baracks.

For the protection of the island Blueacia is relying on the Kuthernburg and Staynes with each having boats around Blueacia and a small army to protect the island itself.

Population

Blueacia sometimes is refered as the rich paradise island, this is due to lots of rich people from all around Urth having a secondary house on the Island. This can also be due to the climate because the island is so close to the Aequetor. Last reason it might be because of all the casino´s and other tourism attractions on the island which make the island a beloved spot to celebrate the hollidays.

The native population is only 86.584 in 2017.
