Adammic Columbia was a Colony of the Empire of Adammia, surrounded by the state of Ohio in the United States. It was made up of a small grassy area behind the residence of the colony's Governor, Lord Sir Grant Hawkins. It was 1359m² in size.

Etymology

The name Hoogland is from the Afrikaans word meaning highland.

Pre-micronation history

This region was most likely inhabbited by the Eire people. Because of a majority of Free City of Hoogland's location being under an electrical grid, land was cleared in 1998 by the electrical company to access the wires on the grids. Many people took advantage of this opportunity and cleared land for fields. In 2006 a housing development was proposed, but was quickly rejected for a number of reasons. The field was used for practicing sports until 2014 when it became New Normandy.

In November of 2015, while Sir Grant Hawkins was looking at an aerial from 1952, he that there was a road of some sort that ran through the claimed land. This road was most likely used to access the electrical grids that run above Free City of Hoogland. The road was subsequently abandoned around the 1960's as another aeril view from 1967 shows the road is over grown.

History

Adammic Columbia was originally a part of West Germania known as The colony of New Normandy. The Colony of New Normandy was founded on January 17, 2014. This was before declaring independence as the Empire of Nova Atlantis due to a lack of communications. This new Empire became stagnant and its Emperor, Grant I, arranged for it to become part of Adammia on 11 January 2015 as Adammic Columbia. It was originally a Territorial Claim and was upgraded to Colony status on 19 April 2015. On 10 August 2016 Grant Hawkins declared independence from the Empire of Adammia and went to the Holy Roman Empire, but the decision was reversed on 14 November 2016, with the territory returning to Adammia. Adammic Columbia finally left Adammia for good on 20 June 2017, with the territory being ceded back to the United States.
