Government website

The Democratic Kingdom of Mallanor, commonly known as Mallanor, is a micronation located in North America. The nation is made up of one province, Theolonia, which is the first and only province of Mallanor at present. The Kingdom is completely surrounded by the State of Ohio in the United States. The form of government used in the kingdom is a Democratic Monarchy where the monarch (a King or Queen) holds many executive powers. The government consists of a Prime Minister, currently Michael Hinnebusch II; a Royal Council, which is made up of the ministers of the government and advises the King; a Parliament, which consists of two houses, the Senate and the House of Commons; and a Supreme Court.

History

Mallanor originally began as a NationStates nation, then declared partial sovereignty in April 2014. The nation has since slowly grown in population and the government system has been refined into the one used today.

2013

On 13 September, 2013, Connor Stumperth was introduced to the nation building website "NationStates." He used a slightly modified country name from a random name generator. The name he came up with was Mallanor. This online nation continued to exist for the remainder of that year, but was discontinued soon afterwards.

2014

The Democratic Kingdom of Mallanor was officially founded by Connor Stumperth on 28 April, 2014. Connor was searching the internet for articles regarding NationStates, and he came across an article about micronations. After this, he looked for more information and found the MicroWiki Forums. He promptly declared his house as the Democratic Kingdom of Mallanor. He appointed his friend, Michael Hinnebusch II, as the Prime Minister, and the next day, he appointed two more of his friends as ministers. The nation quickly expanded, with the acquisition of the rest of King Connor's property and the vacant land adjacent to it. In June, the King appointed Kaylee Smith as the Minister of Culture, further filling up the positions. After this, the country began an extended period of inactivity, which lasted until the end of the year.

2015

Starting in January, the King began to search for citizens again and brought the nation back from its inactivity. This was accompanied with increased pressure on the members of the government to get things seriously started. In February, the King announced that the next National Elections would be held on the 18th of April of that year. This led to an increased pace of planning and politics. The elections were held, and the incumbent Prime Minister, Michael Hinnebusch II was elected in a vote of 5-4.
