Norden ([nor-den]), officially the Nordenian Military Administrative District, or the District of Norden (formerly known as the Republic of Germanija), is a special administrative region of the Grand Republic of Delvera, located in the United States state of Pennsylvania. It was admitted into the Grand Republic on 30 December, 2016. The most prominent citizen is Christian Newton.

History and Legal Status

The District of Norden was officially incorporated into the Grand Republic of Delvera as the Republic of Germanija on July 26th, 2015, and then later as the District of Norden on June 28th, 2016, after many name changes, a relocation of territory, and a secession by the provincial government. The District of Norden was the first Grand Republican territory to be located outside of the state of Missouri, in North Carolina. Norden was disbanded in September of 2016, but was later reincorporated again in December 2016.

The District of Norden has autonomy from the Delveran national government, which cannot impose national laws on the residents. However, the Delveran Armed Services have nearly unlimited access to the majority of the properties for the purpose of training and defense, which is guaranteed to the citizens of the District in exchange. The District is socially, economically, and historically tied to the Grand Republic. The District is overseen and represented by the Chief Director, Christian Newton, who is the youngest territorial leader in Delveran history.

According to the September 2016 census, Norden had 19 citizens, of which 13 were male and 6 were female. The largest age group of Nordenian citizens was 12-15 y/o (11 - 58%), while the smallest group was 8-11 (1 – 5%).

The State Militia is controlled by the Nordenian District Command, and governed by the Nordenian Military Regulations.
