Distopia is a nation in Europe, led by Exarch Lex Justiniana. It was founded in Orbis on 14th of December 2013. Distopia is a member of the alliance Seven Kingdoms. The nation's motto is "We stand where others fall!"
Having served as a chief writer of legislation in service of the Byzantine emperor Justinian, Petros Papandreus decided to don a nick of Lex Justiniana and start his own country some place. Finally, after centuries of wandering (don’t ask how he lived for so long, maybe he is an alien, or something), he found Orbis and a little piece of land he could call his own. Disillusioned about the ways of states, he named his country Distopia, so no one would be fooled to think it was perfect, and founded the first city that would also serve as the capital, Anarchion.
The title of Exarch is adopted from the title of the governors assigned to govern different parts of the Byzantine Empire under the rule of Justinian and subsequent emperors. Most notable part was Italy, which in 6th century CE became known as Exarchate of Ravenna, by its capital. Exarchs enjoyed a great deal of independence in their work and were often de facto kings.
Naming Distopia Exarchate of Anarchion was considered, but scraped due to its implying Distopia is a part of some larger empire.
Lex Justiniana has served as Exarch since Distopianas founding on 14th Dec 2013.
Due to finacial constraints, Distopia is using the flag of the Seven Kingdoms, although designs for a new flag are beeing considered.
Having a long running acquaintance in Ender Wiggin, Lex Justiniana quickly looked to the MIB for membership. He and the nation of Distopia became members on 14th Dec 2013, within hours of founding. With knowledge of law-writing and politics he quickly became part of the government and was an important part of formulating the current Charter and established several embassies to other alliances.
He is served an indefinite term as Gramation Cleric and Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs.
Membership in Seven KingdomsEdit
After the temporary dissolution of MIB Exarch Lex Justiniana applied for membership in Seven Kingdoms and was admitted after a lengthy admission process. Distopia is now undergoing a development program.
Government consists of the supreme ruler Exarch and a Grand Council of the Wise and Powerful(GCWP). Grand Council is comprised of 120 Councilors, 40 of which are elected by all citizens above the age of 17 in 40 constituencies. Another 40 are representatives of mayor employers, unions and 5 of the wealthiest people in Distopia. The last 40 are appointed by Exarch himself from various fields of science and other socially influential people. All mandates last for a period of 5 years.
Grand Councils main purpose is to formulate legislation and enforce it upon institutions of state and the population. Its role is to also prevent legislation that would be hurtful to Distopia and its people. It usually sides with the Exarch.
