Venomous Grandmothers

I, the offficial ruler, also adressed as Emperror, of The Empire of Venomous Grandmothers. I am ordered to introduce my nation among the international community.

"The Empire of Venomous Grandmothers started as a part of another wealthy but very strict country, well-known for it's compulsory 25-year military service, called ... [letters are kinda washed out]. Refusing to be a part of this tyranny any longer several cities revolted. It was an almost bloodless revolt which was achieved by completely and utterly ignoring the officials. These cities were then joined together for international politics and trade purposes and called The Empire of Venomous Grandmothers."
That is the best I could find in the public library, which is more like a few books on very random topics. I cannot confirm if this is really the original story of our Empire as we also have three other variants, but I personally like this best.

As you may have already noticed, there is not any proper order in our empire. Of course, I use the word "proper" by international standards. The nature of our people is very anarchic and chaotic and authorities are looked at with distrust and suspicion. In fact, even the question of joining the United Nations has been debated for decades until we joined this organisation last year. However, we are ready to quit as soon as the UN attempts to put down our civil rights.

The name of our empire has nothing to do with our attitude to grandmothers or elderly people in general. It just portrays how chaotic we are and how we do not respect the world-wide accepted rules of naming your motherland. I would like to assure you that there grandmothers in the empire are not venomous, with an exception of a few.

I would like now to thank you for your attention and hope for your acceptance and understanding.
