The Kingdom of Gaerstania and Great Munkkia, (KGGM) commonly refered to as "Gaerstania" (Also spelled "Gærstania") is a sovereign constitutional monarchy bordering Denmark. Gaerstania gained independence from the People's Republic of Munkkia after a conflict between government officials, which resultet in the split of Munkkia into two sovereign states. Gaerstania was officially founded on the 27th of June 2015 by President Mathias L. Magnussen, who declared himself King of Gaerstania on the same day.
History of Gaerstania
The Munkkia Split
On the 27th of June 2015, a few days after the one year anniversary of Munkkias existance, the Council of Munkkia held a meeting. President Mathias offered two solutions to an impending problem: Two Council members would be leaving Munkkian territory shortly, and Mathias feared this would result in the end of the People's Republic of Munkkia, and would lead them away from micronationalism all together. Mathias proposed a split within Munkkia, where President Mathias, who reamined in Munkkia territory, would establish a new state, and Angutivik-Casper Rúnur Tausen Hansen could establish his own sovereign nation on the Faroe Islands.
The Kingdom of Gaerstania was established on the 27th of June 2015. Later that day, Great Munkkia was added to the title.

Geography of Gaerstania
Gaerstania & G.M. is split into two sections: Gærstania & Great Munkkia. Gaerstania borders the town of Stenstrup on southern funen, and is split up into four cities, South Providence being the capital.
The three remaining cities are Imperia, St. Ansgar and New Royalis. The four cities border each other. Three of the cities consist mainly of grassy meadows, with New Royalis having the Royal Castle of Gærstania aswell as a stone foundation. New Royalis borders a tree field, South Providence borders a local lake.
The City of New Royalis is the smallest city in Gaerstania, aswell as the location of the Royal Castle and the only Gaerstanian city not consisting of grassy meadows. New Royalis gets its name from the location of the Royal Castle, and the "New" for it's relatively modern structure compared to other Gaerstanian cities. New Royalis is about 25 to 30 m2.
The City of The South Providence is the largest and oldest city of Gaerstania. South Providence became a colony of the Empire of Munkkia in January 2015, but was disbanded following the fall of the empire. The South Providence gained the status of "City" by Munkkia during the People's Republic of Munkkia era. South Providence consists of 150 to 200 m2 of tall grass and a few trees. Despite being called the Southern Providence, it's the most northern point of Gaerstania, and was called Southern Providence for it's relative southern placement to Munkkia.
