The Erie Coast is new nation formed after the April Uprising in the Southeastern portion of Michigan. The leader of the uprising, now known as Lead Councilman Deamon Cohln hold executive power at this time. The basis of Erie Coast economy are Coal and Gold, but a strong Marijuana economy thrives here with little regulation.
In early 2009, an uprising started in the lower area of Michigan around the Monroe Area. This uprising spread through the area, eventually bringing the coastal area of Southeastern Michigan to Anarchy. The leader of the this uprising, called Deamon Cohln by his supporters with his birth name unknown, suggested the rural area form its own republic. On April 10, 2009, the Republic of the Erie Coast signed it's Intent of Secession from the Union, thus breaking away from its home country.
The government of the Erie Coast is a Democratic Republic with massive personal freedoms. Every 4 years the entire government is put up for election. It's unicameral house currently has only a 10 person council with the Lead Councilman Deamon Cohln as it's chairman. Currently, all branches of the government are controlled by the Council.
A judicial branch exists with 4 judges presiding over any dispute brought in by its members.
Lead Councilman Deamon Cohln originally thought of the idea of the Republic of the Erie Coast while on a particularly intense trip on Marijuana. Currently, 80% of the nation cultivates the plant for their own use and a tourism industry of pot-enthusiasts are taking trips to the small coastal nation as there is no laws on the drug.
