豐縁國へ良こそ！ Welcome to Hoenn!
The flag of the Hoennese Realm
The Hoennese Realm is a forum-based interactive government simulation, also known as a micronation, based both on an alternate Earth and on the world of Micras. It was founded in January 2016 by the players of the present queen and king of Hoenn, and was inspired by their mutual lifelong love of the Pokémon video games, especially Ruby and Sapphire. It is inspired by several cultures on our planet Earth — Japan, both modern and ancient, being first among equals — but also endeavors to develop a uniquely Hoennese culture alongside them.
In-universe, Hoenn declared its independence from Japan in 1281, as a result of the Mongol invasions, and adopted its present constitution and form of government in 1905.
