History

Background and formation

, the Elessian Royal Palace.

The Kingdom of Elessa is a descendant of the short-lived micronation known as the Kingdom of Slifonia. Taking the idea of a Micronational experiment to virtual environments, the Steering Committee which formed the nation is excited about the future possibilities of this nation as more places are established in other virtual areas around cyberspace. A steering committee consisting of the Royal Family, Dukes, Lords and clergy from the church met in June 2018 to discuss the formation of the new state. After taking time to flesh out how our government would look, a sacred vote was held to invest confidence in a King or Queen of the nation, and would be the first and final democratic act of the nation.
