Biography

Anders Saltborn RSKP, SKPBC, KHC, GCRL, LGM is a Latitudian royalty and statesman. He founded Latitudia in 2006, inspired by watching the BBC series How to Start Your Own Country, however he had since long admired micronational projects like Ladonia, Sealand and similar secessionist movements. Politically Saltborn has always been very keen on personal freedom, and to minimalize the government's involvement and interference with the individual, as well as seeing the importance of a social structure within a society. On a traditional political scale, mostly he would place himself as centre-right. His political opinions clearly reflects in today's politics of Latitudia as well as his other micro- and macronational political involvements.

Born Anders Erik Saltborn 1975 in Gothenburg, Sweden, he grew up mostly in what today is called the Duchy of Northern Mill Valley, while he spent many happy summers near today's Friedenheim. Saltborn has spent many of his years outside Sweden, living and working in several macronations, the most notable period being seven years in the Netherlands. He has many hobbies and interests, amongst others the appreciation and collection of he noble spirit rum, the outdoors GPS sport geocaching, photography and especially to depict graffiti and other streetart, to be a diligent prepper, and to enjoy gardening.
