Huzul, officially the Lands of the Crown of Saint Casimir or State of Huzul, is a micronation bordered by Brazil, enclaved within the Serra da Cantareira, in the northwest zone of São Paulo, Brazil. An autonomous territorial entity which claims to be a sovereign state but is more commonly referred to as a micronation by external observers, is governed as an autocratic constitutional monarchy inspired by the Hutsuls, but also engaged in the Christian community that lives near the kingdom and deeply influenced the culture of Husul.

History[edit | edit source]

Background[edit | edit source]

In late 2020, the Conference of Santiago launched their Conference of Santiago Derivative Program, an effort to support newbie micronationalists in create and/or rule their micronations. The program included the creation and deliver of micronations to new micronationalists within the Brazilian sector, such as have been done to the Hanseatic and Confederate States of Achsen.

Despite its foundation being led by dynastic ambitions, the core of the ideas discussed in its establishment may be found in some projects created by the Conference of Santiago Derivative Program, namely Intermeria, Sonneland and Mieszia. The inspiration of these projects created a new one paired to the Karno-Ruthenian Monarchy and its pretense cohesion regarding people and their multiethnic relations.

Establishment[edit | edit source]

Vasyl Vyshyvanyi, Austro-Ukrainian that inspired Huzul.

However, the foundation of Huzul can also be related to the creation of the Kingdom of Taslavia - talks among dynasts of the House of Götzö-Thomaz-Rocha about micronationalism conclude an agreement to have a member of the Imperial Family ruling a state. While Taslavia is ruled by King Guilherme Ítalo, also an Archduke of Karnia and cousin of Oscar I, in Huzul the husband of Archduchess Beatriz, Archduke Eugene József was the chosen to rule the new state, under the auspices of the Goëtzër Monarchy, counting also with the support of Pannonia. Another reason behind its creation is not just to enforce the imperial ambitions of the ruling house, but also to solve a matter of inheritance of Archduchess Beatriz's daughters, Valentina and Laura.

Eventually, the creation of the state was declared through the Treaty of Lita, signed at the capital of the new kingdom, establishing the official date for its independence, titles of the monarch and his heirs and other measures, like the impossibility of Karnia-Ruthenia to annex Huzul.

Etimology[edit | edit source]

Huzul came evidently from Hutsuls (also Gutsuls or Hutzuls), an East Slavic ethnic group spanning in parts of western Ukraine.

Geography[edit | edit source]

View from the belvedere of the Cantareira State Park.

The Serra da Cantareira region, situated in the northern zone of São Paulo, Brazil, is widely recognized for its natural allure and expansive greenery. A focal point within this region is the Cantareira State Park, distinguished as one of the largest preserved areas of the Atlantic Forest globally. Boasting an extensive network of trails, picturesque waterfalls, and a diverse array of flora and fauna, the park holds significant ecological importance. Serving as a vital sanctuary for wildlife, it contributes to the preservation of the Atlantic Forest.

In addition to its preserved natural landscapes, the region accommodates residential neighborhoods that seamlessly blend with the serene environment. Notable districts such as Mairiporã and segments of Santana find themselves nestled in close proximity to the Serra da Cantareira.

Climate and Topography[edit | edit source]

The Serra da Cantareira significantly influences the local climate, bestowing a temperate ambiance distinct from other parts of São Paulo. The undulating topography and elevated terrain lend the region a refreshing and somewhat rural atmosphere. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, the preservation of Serra da Cantareira assumes paramount importance in the broader context of environmental conservation. The region plays a pivotal role in safeguarding biodiversity, acting as a critical reservoir for water resources and a protector of natural ecosystems.

Politics[edit | edit source]

In practice, Huzul is a an autocratic monarchy, with the monarch retaining tremendous power, to the point that the National Council influence on political life is negligible, existing only for official purposes and headed by Gіlyerm Horovyi, a close friend of the royal family. In some elements, considering the popular support, a possible description of the political status of the kingdom is that a benevolent dictatorship is in action, since the king exercises absolute political power over the state but is perceived to do so with regard for benefit of the population as a whole.

Other analysis appoints that, having more power than constitutional monarchs, who are usually vested by law and counterbalanced by a legislative authority, Huzul is a constitutional, but also an autocratic monarchy. And in any case, certainly under the influence of the Goëtzër Monarchy.

Foreign policy[edit | edit source]

The foreign policy consists of non-intervention, self-determination, international cooperation and the peaceful settlement of conflicts. The matter is taked to the Secretary of State for the Interior Affairs, which is appointed by the King, but it is ultimatelly headed by the King himself as the supreme authority on foreign policy as defined by the Fundamental Laws.

The foreign policy is a by-product of the country's microposition as a new and poorly-populated micronation with few government officials. The country relates itself mostly with other micronations at the Brazilian sector. Rhenish foreign policy has generally been based on the principles of multilateralism, peaceful dispute settlement, and non-intervention in the affairs of other countries.

The first micronation to recognize Huzul was Karnia-Ruthenia on 31 December 2023, being pivotal to its very creation, and was followed by Taslavia and Pannonia, and eventually signed the Treaty of Persenburg, the Protocol of Goetha, the Convention of Mauritsstad, the Convention of Fruchemburg, the Protocol of Klöw and the Montediszamble Convention. These moves inserted Huzul as a officially derivatist micronation within the Brazilian sector, very close to Karnia-Ruthenia.
