The Dershowo (State of) Musograd should not be mixed up with the historic Dershowo Musograd, which ruled over most parts of the current Federated Micronations. The new Dershowo Musograd follows its historic tradition, but is formed only of the Musogradian heartland, the former Libertarian Republic of Kosnice and parts of the Republic of Thylacinia, Republic of Sprijland and Goralny Republic.

The city of Kosnice still has a special status within the Dershowo, as Free Port of Kosnice, with liberal trade rules and English as its first Language

The largest cities are Musograd City, Kosnice, Mohuc, Goralnigrad and Sveti Jelena. The towns of Phulda and Redrok were formed around military bases.

Musograd is heavily industrialized, with an established IT and arms industry.

After this landslide, SLD and JS, former civil war foes, formed a coalition government, with J.I.Chander as Secretary of the Dershowo. After the suppression of the PSCB revolt, JS broke up and ended the coalition. On 2013-01-20, new election took place. SLD again reached 36%, and the newly re-formed PMMA 9%, but DNS, with 32% and CDN-E with 14% were able to form a new coalition with a narrow majority. JS, with 3%, is no longer represented in the Kuomnata (the Musogradian Parliament). G.P.Lunow was elected as Secretary of the Dershowo on 2013-01-26.
  • On 2013-04-12, the accelerating economic crisis led to the breakup of the DNS/CDN-E coalition after less than 4 months.

  • New security and censorship laws were introduced on 2013-06-01.
On 2014-11-15, the Dershowo changed the National Flag, replacing red with gold as background colour. This step was done to avoid any misidentification with the flag of the Russian irredentists in Eastern Ukraine, and to show solidarity with an undivided Ukraine. Gold as colour of the sun and of the metal backing the Common Wallaroo is a portent symbol for the Musogradian people. The old flag, with red background, was defined as Flag of Musogradij Armije, i.e. the Military Flag, also to be used by the Navy and Air Force.
