The Nordkavn Federation was founded on the 18th of May 2018. On the 29th of May, the [[Norsk federal executive general election, May 2018|first federal executive general election]] concluded, with [[Andrew Irons]] being appointed as [[Statsminister]].
==Government==
 
Mcarthia is a parliamentary democracy, led by the First Secretary of State, who is head of government. The Chancellor is head of state, and appoints other Secretaries of State on the recommendation of the First Secretary. The legislature is the National Assembly, and there is also a large judiciary.
 
 
 
===Chancellor===
 
The Chancellor is head of state. The post is elected annually, although the incumbent Chancellor, Anthony Clark, is constitutionally guaranteed the office for life. The Chancellor has a veto power over any legislation, and is also responsible for the regulation of political parties and electoral procedure, and a number of smaller functions. The Chancellor has the power to issue decrees.
 
 
 
===National Assembly===
 
The National Assembly is the legislative branch of the Mcarthian Government. It is bicameral: the lower chamber is the House of Councillors and the upper chamber is the Senate. For the most part, it functions as a unicameral legislature.
 
 
 
The House of Councillors is elected at least annually, although the Chancellor may call general elections as often as he wishes. Senators are elected immediately after a general election by and from the newly-elected Councillors. The House of Councillors is chaired by a Presiding Officer and Depute presiding Officers, while the Senate is chaired by a Convenor and Depute Convenors.
 
 
 
The House of Councillors has primary legislative authority, but the Senate may strike any Act of the House of Councillors (known as 'junior statutes'). The Senate has the exclusive power to ratify international instruments and declare war. It also is responsible for judicial nominations. Any Act of the Senate is known as a senior statute.
 
 
 
===Mcarthian Administration===
 
The executive power of Mcarthia is vested in a number of Secretaries of State and the Advocate-General. Together with the Chancellor, these officers are known as the State Officers, and convene as the National Administration Committee.
 
  
The head of government is the First Secretary of State, who is nominated by the House of Councillors and appointed by the Chancellor. The same process applies for the Advocate-General. All other Secretaries of State are appointed by the Chancellor on the recommendation of the First Secretary.
+
== States ==
 +
There are four states, of which [[Kirkeby]] is the largest. It is divided into two districts: the City of Eskhavn (also the national capital) and Frederiksberg. [[Satirno]], previously a federal state of [[Abelden]], is the second-largest state. [[Amerstager]] is the third largest. Its capital city is Vesterbro and also includes the District of Osterhus. The state of Aarborg has just one district. Its capital is Rystaden.
  
Secretaries of State head Secretariats, of which there are currently four: Interior, Fiscal Affairs, Commerce and Exterior. There are also three Directorates: the Directorate of Electoral Affairs (led by the Chancellor), the Directorate of Intelligence and Security and the Directorate of Financial Conduct.
+
== Government ==
 +
{{Main|Federal Cabinet of Nordkavn}}
 +
The Federal Government is tripartite. All citizens have the right to attend the National Forum, which is the main legislative authority. The Statsminister is head of state and head of government. They, along with the Attorney-General and the Secretaries (collectively, the Federal Officers), are elected through direct popular elections. The National Forum may dismiss any of the Federal Officers by vote of no confidence.
  
The House of Councillors can grant any Secretary of State or the Advocate-General the power to issue secondary legislation (known as directives). This power has been used to issue regulations for the registration of corporations and banks, specify access rights to different levels of classified information and designate certain corporations as subject to freedom of information legislation.
+
The Supreme Court of Justice is the highest court. There are also Courts of appeal, local district and superior courts and a system of federal tribunals. The Chancellor is the most senior judge and appoints and dismisses all the other judges. The courts may strike down laws and control the executive on a wide variety of judicial review grounds.
  
==Law and Judiciary==
+
As well as the National Forum, all of the Federal Officers and the Chancellor may legislate, but National Forum statutes are superior to any other legislation. 
{{Main|Law of Mcarthia}}
 
Considerable powers are vested in the Mcarthian Judiciary. A court can issue any order if it is not prohibited by law, and has the power to review any legislation or executive decision. There are five Mcarthian courts: the Supreme Court, the Court of Appeal, the Court of Session, the High Court of Justiciary and the Primary Court. The head of the Judiciary is the President of the Supreme Court (this office is currently held by the Chancellor). The second most senior judge, the First Justice, is appointed by the Senate, as are the Associate Justices of the Supreme Court, High Judges, Magistrates and Judges in Ordinary.
 
  
The Supreme Court is the final appellate court. It is chaired by the President of the Supreme Court (the Chancellor currently holds this position), but the First Justice (the second most senior judge)
+
As of yet, the states (other than Satirno) do not have their own governments and are controlled directly by the Federal Government.
 
 
==Culture and media==
 
[[File:Eskhavn Guardian favicon.PNG|90px|thumb|left|Logo of the [[Eskhavn Guardian]]]]
 
The culture of the Republic of Mcarthia was heavily influenced by the Scandinavian countries. At present, it is unknown to what extent these influences will continue to have effect in the Constitutional State. Currently, the strongest influence on Mcarthian culture is its prominent legal culture, but great diversity in the citizenry also impacts culture in different ways.
 
 
 
The main news outlet is the [[Eskhavn Guardian]], an international news site covering events across the [[MicroWiki]] community, but based in Mcarthia. It is majority owned by the Mcarthian News Corporation, which is a partly-owned subsidiary of McCarthy International Media. Clark has a close relationship with [[Horatio Eden]], the founder and editor of the [[Daily Micronational]], which has previously covered many Mcarthian news stories.
 
 
 
==Economy==
 
A key aim of the Mcarthian Government is the development of a functioning micronational economy. Clark has a history of involvement in various micronational economic schemes, such as the [[Micronational Dollar]] and the [[MEG|Micronational Economic Group]], but none of these have yet generated a self-sustaining economy. A number of corporations, many financial or legal in nature, were formed rapidly after the foundation of the country.
 
 
 
Clark controls two large conglomerates: the [[Clark Group]] and Intermicronational Capital Holdings. Together, these two corporations own shares in most Mcarthian corporations. A number of these are parent or holding companies. The Clark Group alone owns shares, both directly and indirectly, in six different non-trading companies.
 
 
 
There is a prominent banking sector. The largest bank is the [[Bank of Mcarthia]], but there are two others: First Capital Investment Bank and Alexander Three Bank and Finances. Astute Financial Services (which trades as the Bank of Mcarthia Group, and owns both the Bank of Mcarthia and the Bank of Mcarthia International) received an L700,000 investment from the Mcarthian Government, and its subsidiaries currently hold most private accounts.
 
 
 
One of the most active businesses is the [[Jurisfocal|Jurisfocal Group]], a legal and financial services firm run by Clark. Most recent micronational litigation has been conducted by Jurisfocal's attorneys.
 
 
 
===Currency===
 
Mcarthia's currency is the Lora. There is no Central Bank; monetary creation orders are issued by the Secretary of State for Fiscal Affairs, and the appropriate amount is then added to the governmental General Fund. There is currently L5 million in circulation, although most of this is still held by the Government. Transactions are managed on the Secure Payment System.

The Nordkavn Federation is a micronation established in 2018. The nation was founded by Anthony R Clark. The country is newly-founded; consequently no administration is yet in place.

History

The Nordkavn Federation was founded on the 18th of May 2018. On the 29th of May, the first federal executive general election concluded, with Andrew Irons being appointed as Statsminister.

States

There are four states, of which Kirkeby is the largest. It is divided into two districts: the City of Eskhavn (also the national capital) and Frederiksberg. Satirno, previously a federal state of Abelden, is the second-largest state. Amerstager is the third largest. Its capital city is Vesterbro and also includes the District of Osterhus. The state of Aarborg has just one district. Its capital is Rystaden.

Government

The Federal Government is tripartite. All citizens have the right to attend the National Forum, which is the main legislative authority. The Statsminister is head of state and head of government. They, along with the Attorney-General and the Secretaries (collectively, the Federal Officers), are elected through direct popular elections. The National Forum may dismiss any of the Federal Officers by vote of no confidence.

The Supreme Court of Justice is the highest court. There are also Courts of appeal, local district and superior courts and a system of federal tribunals. The Chancellor is the most senior judge and appoints and dismisses all the other judges. The courts may strike down laws and control the executive on a wide variety of judicial review grounds.

As well as the National Forum, all of the Federal Officers and the Chancellor may legislate, but National Forum statutes are superior to any other legislation. 

As of yet, the states (other than Satirno) do not have their own governments and are controlled directly by the Federal Government.
