Early Micronational Life
It was during his father's reign that Christoph first joined the micronational world. The First Monarchy in the Archduchy of Mimas was a shorter period between 2010 and 2012 ending with the Mimasian December Revolution. Three years passed and the micronation was laid on ice. On Walpurgis Night 2015 Christoph and a set of friends reinstated the Archduchy of Mimas. This time Christoph became Head of State and announced the first general election in three years.
As Archduke, Christoph II founded many royal institutions who all take part in the running of the nation. The Archduchy achieved many new allies and friends and to further strengthen the bonds between regions geographically far away from Northern Europe, Christoph and several governmental representatives spent two months in Russia, Mongolia and China in 2015. During the last months of 2015 the government Christoph founded the Royal University where students attend typical Mimasian classes. In 2020, Christoph got a renewed interest in digital design and achieved further knowledge in the use of digital tools to design iconography for Mimas. This led to several new royal orders and flags during 2020.
