The Archduchy of Mimas is a micronation founded on 30 April 2010. The nation lays territorial claims upon a minor region on the Bjäre peninsula in the south of Sweden, and extraterrestrial claims upon the moon Mimas.

History

The First Mimasian Monarchy

On 30 April 2010 the Archduchy of Mimas was founded by Archduke Christoph I. The nation did only claim the Saturn moon Mimas. Due to the Mimasian December Revolution in 2012 the monarchy and the nation was dissolved. The revolution fought initially only to change the constitutional law stating that "Nobility is not hereditary", but the violence escalated and the Archduke saw no other solution than to abdicate. After the Archduke's abdication the revolutionary leaders did not take power and the Archduchy of Mimas fell into ruin.

The Second Mimasian Monarchy

On 30 April 2015 the Archduchy of Mimas was reinstated by Archduke Christoph II the son of Archduke Christoph I. The Archduchy laid once again claim on Mimas but soon added parts of the village of Grevie, Sweden after a brief conflict within a internet forum on the matter of micronations not having terrestrial claims.

During the period of June, July and August 2015 the Archduke and other representatives of the government travelled through Russia, Mongolia and China connecting with allies and friends in Asia.

In december 2015 Christoph founded the St. Thora Prize.

Government and politics

The logo of the Royal Parliament of Mimas

The Royal Parliament is the legislative core in the Archduchy of Mimas. It is a combination of elected representatives, nobles, and landowners. The majority holder and therefore the party in government is the Mimasian Monarchist Party. The Marchioness of Frerona is the current Minister-President. General elections are traditionally held in early April every year and the parliament holds 43 seats as of 2017. The number of seats in the Royal Parliament is changing from election to election because of the way seats are distributed.


Type of Holder Number of Seats
Elected rep. 2 seats / rep.
Noble rep. 1 seat / rep.
Landowning rep. 0,1 seat / indoor square meter


This form of distribution means that a political party can hold mandate without actually be voted into parliament for example through the Landowner seats. It also means that if a Noble or Landowner becomes an Elected representativehe or she will hold both the 2 Elected representative seats and their Noble or Landowner seats. However, if a Noble is also Landowner he or she can not add these seats together.
