Ameroslavia, officially the Kingdom of Ameroslavia, was a micronation located in South America, bordered by Brazil. The micronation was founded on 01 October 2021 by King Lenart of Ameroslavia, who later dropped the royal title to pursue other micronational projects and embrace other political objectives. Ameroslavia was dormant until restoration promoted by Karnia-Ruthenia under the auspices of the Derivatist Program of the Conference of Santiago. Eventually, on 04 August 2022, after negotiations with the People's Republic of Rivalia, the Ameroslavia was suceeded by the Provisional Government of the State of Slavs of America.
Using the Nomadic Micronation Theory, the original claim in the United State of America was abandoned and the restoration of Ameroslavia happened in Floriano, Piauí. The new territory was formerly a foreign possession of the House of Götzö-Thomaz-Rocha that once returned to the imperial family after a time rented to the son of Archduke George of Karnia, was studied to be more than just a residence, but a micronation in its own right.
The crown was offered to Ari, Archduke of Karnia, former King of Ruthenia and father of Oscar I, who accepted the throne on behalf of his father, the owner of the property where Ameroslavia would be installed.
Etimology[edit | edit source]
The name Ameroslavia, developed by King Lenart, combine Amero, related to America, with slavia, that is a general term for an area inhabited by Slavs. So, Ameroslavia can be understood as "an area inhabited by Slavs in America".
History[edit | edit source]
Establishment[edit | edit source]
The concept behind of Ameroslavia was developed by Lenart (or Lawerence) of Ameroslavia, its founder and first King, who previously created several micronations, including Lodomeria, that turned to be the origin of Ameroslavia.
Working in micronationalism on Twitter since August 2021, he made several projects, changing from monarchist to socialists projects that eventually, at one time, transformed the Lodomerian Democratic Republic founded on 05 August 2021 into the Kingdom of Lodomeria at some point between its foundation and 26 September 2021, because on 30 September 2021, the then Kingdom of Lodomeria was transformed into the Empire of Ameroslavia, idealized as the micronation to unite all Americans with Slavic ancestry.
Despite its general acclaim in micronational community, the founder opted to leave the throne and pursued different goals, changing the project and establishing some micronations that eventually became the People's Republic of Rivala, a socialist micronation. The Ameroslavian throne became vacant by some moment after 03 November 2021 until the restoration attempt carried by the Karno-Ruthenian government.
Restoration[edit | edit source]
Using the Nomadic Micronation Theory, the original claim in the United State of America was abandoned and the restoration of Ameroslavia happened in Floriano, State of Piauí, Brazil. The new territory was formerly a foreign proprierty of the House of Götzö-Thomaz-Rocha called Antonvilla, that when returned to the imperial family after a time rented to the son of Archduke George of Karnia, was studied to be more than just a residence, but a micronation in its own right.
By 21 July 2022, Oscar I contacted the now President of the People's Republic of Rivala asking for his approval for the restoration and to give him guarantee that he would give him all the credit for all the work done by him. Without answer but being faithful to his proposal to the former emperor, Ameroslavia was to be restored as a kingdom and still considering Lenart as their former sovereign, using the heraldry work made by him with some adaptations and preserving his credits on it and even naming the capital as Lenartgrad. Also, an alternative name was thought in case the former ruler ask for changes.
Restored under the auspices of the Derivatist Program of the Conference of Santiago, the micronation had its crown offered to Ari, Archduke of Karnia, former King of Ruthenia and father of Oscar I, who accepted the crown on behalf of his father and was the one behind the initiative to restore Ameroslavia and the offering a crown for his father. In return, Oscar I eventually dropped his rights to succeed in the New Southern Rhine and Pommerland, becoming the Crown Prince of Ameroslavia.
However, the legitimacy of the government was still in question. From the first contact in 21 July until the first hours of 28 July, the reign of Ari I could be challenged by his predecessor, but his rule was legitimized by the former king through a message sent to Oscar I, in which not only Lenart I approved the succession, but also wished good luck to the new government to "take the name [Ameroslavia] further than I have and provide greater glory to it".
Dissolution[edit | edit source]
On 04 July 2022, the Government of Rivalia contacted the Government of Karnia-Ruthenia showing interest to renegotiate the terms of the concession made over not only the name Ameroslavia, but also for the system of government, suggesting the disestablishment of the monarchy in favor of a republic. Understanding the situation of the founder of Ameroslavia and reaching a friendly agreement, the imperial government decided to maintain the monarchy, but perform changes in Ameroslavia, officially dissolving it and creating it in its place the Provisional Government of the State of Slavs of America.

Politics[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Ameroslavian Monarchy
The Kingdom of Ameroslavia could be defined as a unitary constitutional monarchy and sometimes referred to as a kind of enlightened despotism. The monarch, titled as King, was both head of state and head of government of the nation and his position was hereditary. The King had the power to appoint a Prime Minister to act as a co-head of government with a national council. Legislative power was exercised by the monarchy in case of vacancy of the government or through the National Council under the sanction or vetoing of the King. Judicial authority also was to be exercised by the King's Office.
Internal affairs[edit | edit source]
Ameroslavia was an unitary state directly administrated by the King, and was totally comprised by private property owned by the King: Antonvilla (seat of the King), the courtyard (that along Antonvilla forms the capital, Lenartgrad) and the park (the rest of the property that forms Ameroslavia).
Foreign policy[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Foreign relations of Ameroslavia
The foreign policy consisted of non-intervention, self-determination, international cooperation and the peaceful settlement of conflicts. The King himself was the supreme authority on foreign policy. The foreign policy was a by-product of the country's microposition as a new and poorly-populated micronation with few government officials. The country related itself mostly with other micronations at the Brazilian sector. Ameroslavian foreign policy was generally been based on the principles of multilateralism, peaceful dispute settlement, and non-intervention in the affairs of other countries.
Military[edit | edit source]
The kingdom did not have any military, although Karnia-Ruthenia provided the occupation of Ameroslavia under the command of the King and the army he commanded, the Second Army, in case of need, and it relied mostly on the Brazilian police system (State of Piauí Military Police). In any case, the military presence was de facto, only for cerimonial protection and defensive virtual warfare.
Geography[edit | edit source]
Surrounded by Floriano, Piauí, in Brazil, Ameroslavia was not far from the Brazilian state of Maranhão on the west and the United Provices of Mauritia. The Parnaíba River forms the boundary with Maranhão and lies almost entirely within the basin of the Parnaíba and its tributaries. Part of the state on the Atlantic coast and along the lower Parnaíba is low, swampy, and historically malarial. South of this the country rises gradually to a plateau with open campos, where most of Ruthenia is located.
Ecoregion[edit | edit source]
The sandy soils along the Atlantic coast are home to the restingas, low evergreen forests adapted to the nutrient-poor conditions and is also home to the Maranhão Babaçu forests, which extend westward into Maranhão. This ecoregion is dominated by stands of the Babaçu palm.
Climate[edit | edit source]
The climate is hot and humid, with high day-time temperatures and cool nights.
