The Federal Kingdom of Arkonia, or more simply known as Arkonia, is a constitutional monarchy composed of 5 Alueets and a capital district/city, Arkonia City[citation needed]. Arkonia is completely located inside the U.S. State of Arkansas. The Nation was founded on November 17, 2017 and is completely surrounded by Pulaski County, Arkansas. It has an area of 3.85 miles² and 4 citizens. The Kingdom's form of government is a constitutional monarchy, defined by the constitution, the Constitution of the Federal Kingdom of Arkonia[1][2]. The current and so far only monarch is King Tony I, who has ruled the country since it was founded. The capital of Arkonia is the Federal District, Arkonia City. Since Arkonia is surrounded by the United States, the first official language is English. Due to the fact a small amount of citizens can understand German or Espernato, these are the second and third official languages respectively.

Etymology

In November 2017, the 1st Prime Minister founded the Federal Kingdom of Arkonia with his brother. They both agreed on Arkonia as a name. The term Arkonia is the local short form. "Arkonian" is the term for a citizen(denonym) of Arkonia.

History

2017

Arkonia was founded by the 1st Prime Minister on November 17, 2017. The 1st King, Tony I, was invited to be the King after the 1st Prime Minister decided to change the nation from a republic to a Monarchy. The Kingdom of Arkonia invited many people to become citizens in mid-December. Some people responded, which increased the population to 6 people, the highest it had ever been.

2018

The population has stayed the same in 2018. However, the amount of active citizens has dropped to four. Arkonia has drafted the final version of the constitution, which will be signed during Arkonia Week 2018. Arkonia has 6 bills that have been written and signed by the Prime Minister and King. All of these bills are in the Arkonian Book of Bills. In late September 2018, Arkonia changed its flag.[3]
