The Commonwealth of Nova Veritasia, officially The Commonwealth of Nova Veritasia and Her Dependencies is a self-proclaimed hobby micronation with territorial claims within the Maritime region of Canada. It is made up of 4 Provinces, and several smaller Exclaves. Its capital city is Fort Victoriaville in the Province of Breakwater. The nation's largest city is the City-Province of Totwick. The national animal is the Canada Lynx.
The idea for a micronation was born on the 14th of July 2021 and, an expedition was launched to colonise an island on the St. John River. The expedition was unsuccessful and was bogged down in the swamp. On 16 July a second expedition was launched, and successfully crossed the 'St. John Strait' and landed at 'Queen Elizabeth the Second Point.' The expedition explored the island interior, chose the location of the capital, and mapped the way to 'Sir John A. MacDonald Point.'
On 24 July 2021 a third expedition was launched, and ground was broken in 'Fort Victoriaville' as sight of the new capital. The Commonwealth of Veritasian Canada declared 'Unilateral Independence. Later changed the name to The Commonwealth of Nova Veritasia and Her Dependencies'
On 12 August 2021 The Aquila met and decided to incorporate additional territory into The Commonwealth. The Provinces of Breakwater, Riechton, and Totwick where founded.
On 21 August 2021 an expedition set out into the Bay of Fundy, and spotted an uninhabited island. The next day claim was laid to the island, and the Province of Romulus Island was established.
The government is headed by the Governor General who also fills the role of Prime Minister. His cabinet are an elected council know as the 'Aquila.' A council of 'Aquilafers,' citizens who have earned higher station through service. The term 'Aquilafer' comes from the Latin 'Aquila' a military standard. The positions in The Aquila are: Surgeon General, First Lord of The Admiralty, Interior Minister, Foreign Secretary, Sky Marshal, and Finance Minister.
The Commonwealth is divided into Provinces. Each Province is headed by a Governor. Each Governor is an Aquilafer, and are regional representatives to The Aquila.

The Commonwealth divides it's citizens into two castes, Citizens, and 'Aquilafers.'
