Bromenia disbands


MICROWIKI – MicroWiki micronationalists lined up yesterday to say goodbye to a long-standing micronation in their ranks as the Macedon Republic of Bromenia was ordered disbanded by its government.

The announcement was made by the secessionist Balkan micronation’s President, Mattiaš Kocjek, following a government session on March 9. During that session, the leadership of Bromenia decided that their aspirations for statehood were no longer tenable due to a significant population drain from forty-six to twelve citizens.

Kocjek noted that many of the citizens had simply “forgot about the project completely,” ultimately leading to its downfall. Kocjek nonetheless encouraged other secessionists not to be discouraged by Bromenia’s failure. “It’s a very achievable dream,” he told them, while acknowledging its “harsh reality”.

Bromenia was founded in September 2013 and was centred on an abandoned village in Bulgaria called Dragostin that it intended to renovate into its capital city over a period of seven years. Among its stated successes was it being the first ‘country’ in Southeast Europe to recognize same-sex marriages, which was part of its wider goal to close the gender-gap through the prioritizing of women’s and LGBT rights.

    The information in this article is no longer correct. Bromenia was reformed a few days after it’s original fall, this was due to encouragement from the rest of the micronational community and some Bromeni citizens wishing to continue the project, including myself.
