The Kingdom of Falcar (Falcarian: Normresànus Falkarnu, pronounced: [nɔːm'ɹesɒn'ʌs fæl'kɑrnu]; or (/fæl'kɑrnu/; Falkarnu) is a micronation founded on New Years Day 2015 by the signing of the Royal Foundation Act. It succeeded the former micronation of Turto, Founded in 2009.

The Kingdom is a 3.2 level micronation as defined by Linden's Revised System of Classification, ranking as a significant micronation.[2]

The Kingdom of Falcar consists of the townships of Hawkepool, Port Maronia and the capital Arbonia, Jennsia, Maronia and formally Kanin and The Kanes.

As a state capitalist nation, Falcars primary intended purpose is to produce revenue through monopolised, state-owned (or, "crown") corporations, and to use the revenue generated through exports to provide services, pay wages, and give benefits to its citizens.


The Area which now comprises Falcar were occupied by the traditional Kaurna and Nharangga people for thousands of years prior to the arrival of Europeans in the territories. In 1836 settlers landed in Adelaide and started what would later become the colonisation of South Australia. in 1901 South Australia joined other states and became part of the Commonwealth of Australia. In the late 1980's the territories of Jennsia were purchased from that government, followed by the territory of Maronia in the 2000's and Arbonia in the 2010's.

In December 2008 a small patch of land named Jennings was declared independent from Australia. Jennings produced currency, had basic legislative frameworks and a university. The following year saw the founding of a successor micronation based on a shared desire to found a country between the founder of Jennings and others at his high school. The People's Republic of Turto was founded shortly thereafter.

The first flag of Turto was official for less than a month in 2010 and used a ratio of 1:2 rather than the later 2:3 Turtonian/Falcarian standard

Turto survived through various forms over the next few years, including a political shift towards monarchy with the Turtonian Empire and a simplification of structure through the Kingdom of Turto. It held significant political relations with the Federated Republics of A1 and it's predecessor the Most Glorious People's Republic of A1, as well as Dranoria, Rukora, and others.

By 2014 it was becoming apparent that the micronation was in serious need of reform. Many positions in Parliament were unfilled and the ability to conduct government was becoming difficult. In December The King of Turto passed the Royal Foundation Act, abolishing the Second Turtonian Kingdom and succeeding it with the Kingdom of Falcar.

The last official flag of Turto, The Turtonian Cross was used from 2012 until the establishment of Falcar in 2015 and contained a variety of meanings

On January 1st 2015 the Royal Foundation Act came into effect, whereby the King of Turto became the King of Falcar and assumed the role of Prime Minister as incumbent until an election is held. The Kingdom of Falcar consisted originally of Jennsia , Maronia (The former states of Turto), and The Kanes and Kanin.

In 2017 the territories formerly consisting of The Kanes and Kanin were relinquished with approval from the King back to Australia. Later that year the territory of Arbonia became the official Capital of Falcar. The Swan Act came into force, creating a criminal and civil court, regulating punishments for convicted persons and ensuring protections for accused people.

From 2020 until early 2022 the COVID-19 pandemic has caused the micronation to follow macronational law and close all borders between territories for brief periods of time, including to citizens with residency. The ability to conduct government was impacted and the nation went into a brief period of inactivity with only minor law reforms being passed. It was officially declared reactive in March of 2022 with constitutional amendments relinquishing arbitrary land claims.

In early 2023 some states such as Maronia were retitled and a policy of temporary micronational isolationism was officially adopted to allow for reform.

Government and politics

Economic System

The Falcarian market system is not defined within the constitution, although it could be simply described as state capitalist as all the corporations and organisations are directly controlled by the government. It may be possible for persons who wishes to found a corporation to do so and possibly work within a free market system, although no such application has ever been submitted to the government (as of 2018) and remains untested.

Political System

The Monarch acts as Head of State and Head of Government until such time as a prime minister is appointed, at which point the role of Head of Government is invested in the Prime Minister on behalf of the Monarch.

The Falcarian Constitution requires the establishment of a representative house in the event of the formation of a political party.

The Monarch of Australia, currently Queen Elizabeth II may ascend to the crown of Falcar at any time per request; although possesses no other authority. This law limits the actions of the Falcarian monarch, preventing any conflict between micro and macronational entities.

Defense and Security

The Port of Maronia

The Falcarian Defense Force is responsible for matters regarding national security and cyber security, whilst the Court system of Falcar (As defined by the Swan Act) is responsible for investigating, apprehending and convicting persons suspected of committing a crime against the nation, due to this Falcar does not have a police service, all prosecuting services are undertaken by the courts.

Ministerial Positions

Heads of each department are known as '(x)-General', for example, the 'Defence-General' is constitutionally the 'Monarch', while the 'Foreign-General' is the head of Foreign Affairs.

Foreign relations

The Nation of Falcar is open to diplomatic relations with other micronations globally. At present mutual recognition and/or peace agreements have been ratified with the Empire of Iustus and the Gymnasium State.

Automatic recognition within Falcar

Any micronation which has received contact from the Falcarian Government at a diplomatic level is recognised as a macronational state, although this does not guarantee recognition of land claim.

Micronational Classification

Various micronations and groups have attempted to classify a number of factors to assist them in international diplomacy, many of these classifications have broad or undefined categories which makes them unable to correctly define a nation, for example one ranking may assume financial interests are dominant, while another may find cultural influence more important. the following is a list of classifications and the Falcarian result; note that inaccuracies may exist as the information is based on the 2017 census and questionnaires are not always easily defined.
