Eminia, officially the Kingdom of Eminia (Portuguese: Reino de Emínia) is an enclaved micronation located in South America and Europe, bordering Portugal, France and Brazil. Portuguese is the national and one of the country's two official languages along with French. English is recognized as a diplomatic language.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

The country's proper name was inspired by the Visigoth name of the region where it was located. The name Eminia comes from the Latin Aeminium, "elevation" or "height".

History[edit | edit source]

Louis Phillipe, King of the Eminians.

Before its creation, part of the territory was part of the Republic of Portugal, Federative Republic of Brazil and French Republic, comprising territories enclaved in one Portuguese city, a Brazilian city and one French city. On 13 December 2020, Duke Louis Phillipe of Orlheón, founded the kingdom, with Karno-Ruthenian support, after discussions that started on 30 November[2].

Louis Phillipe of Orlheón, already was an experienced micronationalist, very active within the Lusophone sector, ruling the simulationist Kingdom of Portugal and Algarves. Searching for new challenges and to improve its micronational biography, he left the simulationism behind and establish his own kingdom. He granted a new constitution, and recognize his late father, Duke Victor Manuel of Bregenza as the first King of the Eminians, marking the establishment of the political system as a popular monarchy. His brother, Duke Guilherme of Vizée was made his heir.
