The Kingdom of Begon (Better known as Begon, historically known as Begonia) is a nation project located in the Carolinas in the eastern United States. It is a semi-absolute monarchy ruled by His Holy and Royal Majesty, King Christoph I. The most common language spoken in Begon is English, but some citizens also speak German, the second national language.
His Holy and Royal Majesty, King Christoph I, is the reigning monarch and Head of State, held accountable by The National Assembly and House Of Royals, both houses of Parliament. His Serene Highness, Prince David Augustus, is the Lord High Chancellor of Begon and Head of Government. He coordinates Parliamentary sessions as a representative of HH&RH.
History and Etymology
Begon originates from a teenhood organization, The Blades, which was founded in an attempt to reform the U.S government. The Blades focused on Carolinian and German nationalism, both of which fueled the flames for the founding of Begon, and it's predecessors.
The name "Begon" derives from the flower, Begonia, which was also the name of the predecessor to The Kingdom of Begon, The Kingdom of Begonia. Begonia was named after the flower, being that it was common in symbolism concerning or referring to The Blades.
The Crowned Republic of Polinaturalo was the micronational stepping stone that lead to Begon being founded. It succeeded The Blades as a Micronation instead of an Organization. Polinaturalo was an absurd nation, and would not have been taken seriously at all in current Micronational Standards. It banned things such as Snakes, Seals and Homework from entering it's borders.
Begon considers itself The Continuation of The Begonian Kaiserreich, one of it's predecessors. It also claims to be one of many successor-states to The Holy Roman Empire, specifically to The Duchy of Saxony and The Billung March.
Begon divides It's territories into Provinces and Territories. Royal Provinces and Territories are lands with Monarchs, all of the Provinces and Territories listed below are Royal. All citizenship counts include both Honorary and Residential citizens.
