History

The Duchy of Caledon is only 1 square and is located in a national park in the Scottish Highlands. The founder of Flandrensis bought this piece of land on 24th July 2008 (before he started with micronationalism) to support the conservation of the Scottish environment. On 22nd June 2009 he decided to use this piece of land to found the first colony of the Grand Duchy of Flandrensis.


Government

The Duchy of Caledon has a form of autonomy, but is loyal to the government of Flandrensis and it’s constitution. Because the territory is a personal possession of Niels of Flandrensis he may appoint the leader, in the other Duchies the dukes are appointed by the Parliament. Viscount Hein of Giddis was the first governor, and later the Duke of Caledon. He’s the Prime Minister of Flandrensis and formal leader of the nationalist NPF. Together with his title as Duke he’s also the Grandmaster of the Holy Military Order of Saint Polycarpus.
