Drietsland is a micronation founded by Seved Eriksson. Drietsland is located in Stockholm, Sweden and was formerly a warlord state until the 4th of June 2016 when Seved Eriksson declared it a Micronation.

Etymology

The name Drietsland came from the old name of Drietsland: Droiderna. The name Droiderna was created by Drietslands 2nd President, Ture. This was because Drietsland was earlier called the Pigs. Ture shortly resigned after getting elected in January 2015 as it turned out that he was a spy for Calcony. This caused Seved regained power. Eventually, the name transformed into Drietsland. The transformed was most likely caused by Seved's taste for West Germanic sounding things.

History

On the 4th of June 2016, Drietsland declared independence as a kingdom. Two days later, at the 6th of June, Drietsland sent troops to explore land. As Drietsland expanded, so did influence. On the 3rd of September 2016, Drietsland joined the MA. War occured between Calcony and Drietsland in October 2016. The war was formerly called the First Driets Civil War due to the participation of civilians in combat. The war didn't end until Calconian withdrawal in November. Drietsland left the MA in January 2017 as a result of a communist member state cheating in the MA Leader Elections. Drietsland rejoined when Jack den Heijer regained power.

On 14th of February 2017, Prime Minister Seved Eriksson appointed a new king, Adam I and formed a parliament. The Talsi Convention of 2017 made 3 more micronations, 1 of them being divided in 3. Drietsland would later sell a puppet state to Latland. When Cyrisk and Lusititaene joined the MA and eventually established a dominance over the MA, Drietsland left the MA twice with a small time of rejoining. Calcony later declared war on Drietsland, though peace shortly followed after Drietsland paid Calcony reparations in form of Oreos. Drietslsnd participated in the Coalition war against Cyrisk.

Prime Minister Seved Eriksson decided to replace King Adam I with King Lorenzo I on the 16th of October and drafted a new constitution. Calcony and Drietsland went to war against each other for the third time in Fall 2017.The war ended on the 15th of December 2017 with a Status Quo. Calcony became communist in February 2018 and declared war on Drietsland to support the Driets Communists. The war ended when the leader of Calcony declared that Calcony no longer existed and neither did Drietsland. Prime Minister Seved Eriksson ignored this and Drietsland remained. The war caused the election to be postponed until October.

The October election was the first election that Seved Eriksson lost since the 4th of June. Seved Eriksson lost to the Fascist Party. Eventually, an agreement was reached and the fascists were allowed to govern while Seved was King. In early March 2019, all the Drietsmark prototypes went missing, causing a severe halt in the official introduction of the Drietsmark. The Drietsmarks were found after three weeks, but would never be introduced.

Drietsland declared war on Seldavia on December 8th 2019. After Delphia surrendered to Seldavia, the Delphian region of Winchell was ceded to Drietsland. This made Drietsland have a border with it's war enemy and the King decided to re-establish the army.
