INDEPENDENT WESTRIAN KUKURIA
YOU ARE LISTENING TO THE IWK NATIONAL ANTHEM:
"THE BRAVE BANANA WARRIOR"
 

WHERE IS INDEPENDENT WESTRIAN KUKURIA ON VEXILLIUM??
 
 
ON THE CONTINENT FIARRIA, SOUTHEAST OF LEIPUTRIA, FORMERLY PART OF THE OVERSEAS COLONY OF MERITÉ.

WHAT IS INDEPENDENT WESTRIAN KUKURIA?
 
A FIERCELY INDEPENDENT STATE OF ETHNIC WESTRIANS LIVING IN THIS REGION, WHICH HAS EMERGED FROM NEW MERITÉ, WHICH FORMERLY HELD CONTROL OVER THE WESTRIAN POPULATION LIVING HERE.

WHY ARE THESE WESTRIANS NOT LIVING IN WESTRIA OR AS PART OF THE BUROVIAN REALM?
 
WESTRIANS HAVE LIVED IN KUKURIA AFTER THE EXODUS FOR MANY CENTURIES.  KUKURIA HAS BECOME THEIR HOME.  WHILE MANY WESTRIANS, WHO WERE FORMERLY DISPERSED ALL OVER VEXILLIUM, CHOSE TO IMMIGRATE TO THE NEW WESTRIAN HOMELAND UNDER THE BWA, OR TO JOIN THE BUROVIAN REALM, THE KUKURIAN WESTRIANS CHOSE TO STAY WHERE THEY HAVE LIVED FOR SUCH A LONG TIME.  THEY ALSO PREFERRED TO LIVE INDEPENDENTLY FROM THE REALM, AND WITHOUT THE ADMINISTRATION OF THE BWA - DEMOCRATICALLY.

WHEN WAS INDEPENDENT WESTRIAN KUKURIA CREATED?
 
ON DECEMBER 21, 298, AFTER REPEATED APPEALS TO CHRISTIANA, AND AFTER HELP FROM THE BWA, BOTH CHRISTIANA AND WESTRIA GAVE RECOGNITION OF THE INDEPENDENCE OF WESTRIAN KUKURIA, THUS GIVING BIRTH TO OUR SOVEREIGN NATION.

WHO IS IN CHARGE IN INDEPENDENT WESTRIAN KUKURIA?
 
THE COUNCIL OF KUKURIAN WESTRIANS HAS BEEN SPEARHEADING THE EFFORT OF OUR INDEPENDENCE, AND ACTED AS OUR VOICE.  AFTER INDEPENDENCE WAS ACHIEVED, FREE ELECTIONS WERE BE HELD TO DETERMINE OUR NEW FREE DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT,  JANUARY 21, 299.  THE PARTIES WHICH RAN IN THE ELECTIONS, AND THEIR RESPECTIVE FLAGS, ARE AS FOLLOWS (PARTIES WITH LESS THAN 1% OF POLL SUPPORT HAVE NOT BEEN INCLUDED):
