Recognition of Monovia revoked
The Empire revoked recognition of the Principality of Monovia today after over five years of close diplomatic relations.
Monovia yesterday renounced its claim to independent statehood, leading to an Imperial Decree being published earlier this evening which revoked recognition of the principality.
Monovia – formerly known as Adjikistan and as Libertas – had been a protected state of Austenasia since October 2011, with the Empire responsible for its defence.
Situated near the British city of Sheffield, Monovia’s leader, Harry Fitzpatrick, held the rank of Caesar between August 2012 and June 2016.
This leaves Austenasia with three protectorates: Orly, Wilcsland, and Wildflower Meadows.
