|Leader Name:||Ms Lauryn Hill|
|History:||The Queendom of Oshun was founded and declared independence from the United States on June 19, 2000 after a centuries long, hard fought liberation movement, commonly referred to as The Great Blaxit. Upon its declaration of independence, Oshun was swiftly recognized by the international community as a sovereign matriarchal society. The nation formally established itself as an elective monarchy and crowned a wise and righteous freedom fighter–simply known as Jane–to be Queen until her abdication or death.|
Since its founding, Oshun has established itself as a relatively peaceful and joyful nation, which can be traced to two major factors: 1) women outnumber men, three to one and 2) the nationally mandated 40 hour work week with a mandatory one month vacation. To date, there have been no national conflicts that haven't been resolved over a few bottles of wine and a joint or two. Additionally, Oshun enjoys an extraordinarily fair and efficient criminal justice system, with law enforcement and the communities they serve working together in perfect harmony to keep crime non-existent.
Oshun has a strict and very specific immigration policy born from its break from the United States. All women of the African Diaspora and indigenous Americas are welcomed unconditionally to visit and migrate to Oshun. Citizens from countries with vicious colonization histories (namely the United States and most European nations) are only permitted to visit if sponsored by an Oshuni citizen in good standing. If foreigners wish to migrate to Oshun permanently, they must swear allegiance to the nation's foundations of justice, fairness, equality, and the Queendom's efforts to empower and uplift those harmed by Western colonization.
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and New Zealand are the only Western regions exempt from sponsorship to visit Oshun, as Queen M has never met a Vancouverite or Kiwi she didn't like. However, they must follow normal immigration protocol if they wish to migrate permanently.
Oshun aims to primarily care for the well-being and affairs of its own nation, though it will extend aid whenever possible to allies and friendly nations.
Oshun's patron saint is Harriet Tubman.
