The Kingdom of New Galicia is a micronation inside the mexican republic which claims for its independence. It's located in the same territory formed by the sovereing states of Jalisco, Nayarit, Aguascalientes, Colima and Zacatecas. It is adjacent to the North, the South and the East with Mexico and to the West with the Pacific Ocean.
This micronation was founded in December, 2003 by a student of secondary school from the State of Jalisco. The purpose of its creation is stablish a strong country in the Mexico's western zone.

The first named the kingdom had was Vestria, and it only was for the state of Jalisco, where the concept of the new nation was created. The Kingdom was named Vestria due to that in the scandinavian mithology there used to be 4 dwarves which bored the 4 cardinal points, the dwarf that held up the West was called Vestri, so that if we realize that Jalisco is located in the western zone of Mexico, we can determine that Vestria means Land of the West.
Then, when the mexican states of Aguascalientes, Zacatecas and Nayarit joined Vestria, the union took the name of New Galicia after the historical kingdom founded on January 25, 1531 by the spanish conqueror Nuño de Guzmán in the same region. Later, the King Benjamin I claimed the right to be the ruler of the Princedom of Kardistian (State of Colima), which also was a territory occupied by the historical kingdom of New Galicia. The Prince Antonio Carmelo didn't answered the ultimatum so the Senate declared that the territory of the Princedom of Kardistian, the same of the State of Colima, was originally part of the Kingdom of New Galicia, so that it was totally unrecognized such Princedom and then joined it to the union.
The King was supported by the Empire of Medio Mundio, Empire of Petrossia, and the LoSS.
After the union of Colima, the original territory of the Kingdom of New Galicia, got completed.
