I am President Michael Shepard, President of the Republic of Galte. On behalf of the government of our nation as a whole, I request to join the League of Independent Nations. Allow me to provide some information about our nation.
We declared independence on December 8, 2019.
Our government runs on libertarian principles, doing everything in our power not to trample on the rights of the people.
Our mainland claim is Low Island, located in the South Shetland Islands of Antarctica.
We also hold 2 claims surrounded by the American state of Michigan.
What makes your nation unique? What is the type of government? Just a simple question.
What makes us unique is what we have planned for the future. I cannot go into too much detail on what we have planned, but it involves restarting our economy and raising our GDP per capita. We're still in the early stages of everything, so we have elected not to disclose our full plan just yet.
We are also working on creating an information source similar to MicroWiki, but focused on our nation specifically. This is not to disregard MicroWiki or the MicroWiki community, as I am very grateful for what they have done for the micronational community, and we will continue to support them and be active there. We just wanted something that could be more personalized to our needs.
Our government is not a republic, despite the name. We consider ourselves officially to be a unitary, single-party, benevolent dictatorship. I can clarify on that last part if needed, but we use the term dictatorship to describe that the President stays in power. It's similar to a monarchy, and an Act is currently on the table to change our official description from a "benevolent dictatorship" to something that emphasizes the importance of the democratic process that does exist within our nation.
