San Marinoball, officially the Republic of San Marinoball, also known as the Most Serene Republic of San Marinoball, is an enslaved enclaved microstate and Unitary parliamentary constitutional republic in Europe. His clay is composed of 8 subdivisions known as municipalityballs, as well as his capital San Marino City-icon.png San Marino Cityball, giving him a total area of 24 square miles, making him the 3rd smallest countryball in Europe, and the 192nd largest countryball in the world. His small population makes him the 218th most populous countryball, and one of the most unpopular human migration destinations.

He is not a member of many international organizations as he is a very peaceful nation. Although while not a member of EU-icon.png EUball, he does participate in the Council of Europe.

San Marinoball is often seen as a very historic countryball as he is the only surviving Italian microstate from the Italian Unification. As a result, he is used as a reminder of the times when Europe, particularly Germanyball, Italyball, and the Pyrenees were made up of tiny political units, making him a very popular tourist destination.

The recurring joke involving San Marinoball is that even though he is the oldest countryball, Italy-icon.png Italyball treats him like his baby boy because of San Marinoball's size.

History

San Marinoball, the world's fifth smallest state, claims to be the world's oldest surviving republic. According to tradition, San Marino was founded in 301 AD when a Christian stonemason named Marinus (From Croatiaball) the Dalmatian, later venerated as Saint Marinus, emigrated in 297 AD from the Dalmatian island of Rab, then a Roman colony, when the emperor Diocletian issued a decree calling for the reconstruction of the city walls of Rimini which had been destroyed by Liburnian pirates. Finding persecution of his Christian beliefs, Marinus hid on the peak of Mount Titano (the highest of San Marinoball's seven hills) and founded a small community following Christian beliefs. The owner of the land, Felicissima, a sympathetic lady of Rimini, bequeathed it to the small Christian community of mountain dwellers, recommending to them to remain always united.

It is certain that the region has been inhabited since prehistoric times, although evidence of the existence of a community on Mount Titano dates back only to the Middle Ages. That evidence comes from a monk named Eugippio, who reports in several documents going back to 511 that another monk lived here. In memory of the stonecutter, the land was renamed "Land of San Marino", and was finally changed to its present-day name, "The Republic of San Marino".

Later papers from the 9th century report a well organized, open, and proud community: the writings report that the bishop ruled this territory. In the Lombard age, San Marino was a fief of the dukes of Spoleto, but the free commune dates to the tenth century.

The original government structure was composed of a self-governed assembly known as the Arengo, which consisted of the heads of each family (as in the original Roman Senate, the Patres). In 1243, the positions of Captains Regent (Capitani Reggenti) were established to be the joint heads of state. The state's earliest statutes date back to 1263. The Holy See confirmed the independence of San Marino in 1631. San Marino has had a long-standing of neutrality, preceding that of Switzerland by several centuries.
