The Empire of Ardelia is a wiki based geofictional "micronation" located on the fictional planet of Mors Prime. More specifically, within the continent of Archia. The nation is currently subdivided into three constituencies (North Ardelia, South Ardelia and Soul Island). The state is also a member of the LSN.
The nation of Ardelia was founded in late March of 2019 by micronationalist Charles (Charlie) Ross. The state was founded in an attempt to create a new simulationist state that would spearhead Mr. Ross' new project, the fictional planet of Mors Prime.
According to historical records, the earliest known mention of the word "Ardelia" to refer to the land in Archia was in early 1503 when it is believed that Ardelia began it's existence as a feudal state of the (now) Vossk Empire. It was during this time (roughly 1503-1541) that Ardelia was ruled over by it's first feudal Lord. This individual was Prince Justinian I, Grand Duke of Ardelia.
Ardelia remained a feudal vassal state of Vossk for the next three hundred years until early 1890. It was at this time that political instability within Vossk led to a collapse of the government and the feudal system with it. Seeing that Vossk was too preoccupied to deal with it (and seeing that her people wished to live as an independent nation) then ruler Princess Argoli I, Grand Duchess of Ardelia declared her nation's independence from Vossk and on 3 October 1898, the Imperial State of Ardelia was formed and Princess Argoli's son, Prince Justinian (who had become ruler of Ardelia in 1896) was crowned as the first Shah of Ardelia, taking the title of Shah Justinian II.
Following it's independence, Ardelia maintained a mostly neutral stance in regards to international politics and attempted to distance itself as much as possible from other neighboring nations (save for the Republic of Potomia whom Ardelia maintained close relations with). However, this did not stop the Vossk Empire from attempting (on multiple occasions) to invade Ardelia.
Regardless of this, not much happened following independence (with a few notable exceptions).
The physical geographical makeup of Ardelia consists primarily of flat wooded territory. The only disruption to this is a large bay (Yn Ddiogel Bay) that splits the nation in half. The country borders Vossk to the west and the Continental Ocean to the north.
The Empire of Ardelia is an absolute monarchy with a Shah as head of government and state. However, a Minister President is elected by the people every five years who's job it is to advise the monarch on internal affairs and make suggestions for legislature and decisions.
The purpose of the monarchy is to govern the state and people of Ardelia.
