Nedland, officially the Khaganate of Nedland (Cyrillic: Каганат ов Недланд; Šlovedkian: Kéhéntsvu Nidpudi, Norwegian: Khanatet Nedland), is one of two constituent countries of Nedlando-Khorașan. It is located primarily in the Washington, D.C. area of the United States, with territory in nineteen other macronations. The country is divided into 7 vəlāyats and 57 departments. Nedland also has an enclave in the territory of Mahuset (Alkland) and vice-versa (Lundenland).
Nedland currently controls territory in the United States, but also in the United Kingdom, Bangladesh, the Czech Republic, Ghana, Cameroon, the Netherlands, Poland, Algeria, Romania, France, Pakistan, Spain, Italy, Serbia, Kazakhstan, and Switzerland. As of August 16, 2017, the population was 232, comprising 91.3% of the total Nedlando-Khorașanese population. As of August 2017, an estimated 5-10 percent of the population was unemployed. Nedland also has borders with the micronations of Sandus, Paravia, Mercia, Austenasia, Mahuset, Hortania, Glastieve, Lundenwic and Coria.
On May 24, NG founded an alliance which was called the MNTO (Micronational Treaty Organization), an organization dedicated to protecting its members.
On May 27, due to reasons concerning MNTO, Duke Jeffrey Bellino withdrew the Lowcountry from the MNTO and withdrew recognition from Nedland. This was due to accusations of NG being untrustworthy and overly politically covert in his dealings with other members of MNTO. This then sparked the controversy that would eventually destroy the MNTO.
The MNTO held an election the same day for organization president. NG won with three votes. His opponent, Liam Raymond of Wolfpond, was appointed to various positions of power, including the leading adviser to the president.
On May 31, it dissolved for various reasons.
The Pannonian War started when Liberland laid claim land claimed by South Maudlandia, and their president, Matthew Phillips, issued a warning to them. When Liberland ignored the warning and occupied the island of Siga, South Maudlandia declared war on Liberland.
On June 6, 2015, President NG issued a formal declaration of war against Free Republic of Liberland, bringing Nedland into the Pannonian War on the side of President Matthew Phillips of South Maudlandia. Nedland already viewed Liberland negatively, as Liberland had previously ignored a Nedlandic request for a treaty of mutual recognition.
When the Kid United Republic, who was on the side of South Maudlandia in the War, informed NG of the reasoning for the war, Nedland joined South Maudlandia in the effort to defeat Liberland before the Serbian or Croatian police would potentially intervene.
On June 7, Nedland withdrew its declaration of war, with President NG citing no advantageous outcome for any belligerent but South Maudlandia, and persuasion from Jackson Cole and Richard I of Mercia.
On 4 July, Nedland adopted national reforms recommended by the International of Left-wing Parties: The government dissolved the Lunar Territory, made English the only national official language , and changed the national flag, among other minor reforms.
On 26 July 2015, Nedland was admitted into the Nollandish Confederacy, a commonwealth/union of nations united in trade, diplomacy and such. Nedland joined mainly due to the fact that their friend-nations were members.
Nedland ceased membership in the Nollandish Confederacy after it was absorbed into the Empire of Paravia on 13 August 2015.
Coup and Joining Paravia
In a Facebook group message, President NG expressed his plans to "leave the micronational community" after Mathias L. Magnussen of Munkkia leaked a screenshot of a private message showing that NG had plotted to overthrow Joseph Kennedy, the Prime Minister of Austenasia. Following this, NG appointed Eren Lewis as head of the military and awarded Lord Grant Hawkins an autonomous republic to administer. Lewis held a coup against the Nedlandic government, installing Lord Hawkins as President of Nedland.
NG sent a message to Hawkin's Facebook profile requesting he step down as president. Hawkins decided not to step down, and ruled Nedland for 4 days until he disbanded the landless government on 17 August 2015. Jackson/Horatio Eden, a citizen of the Universal Triumvirate, declared himself Ceremonial President of the Democratic Socialist Federation of Nedlandic Republics the same day, but without any remaining territorial claims, the title bore no authority.
Paravia stepped in to administer Nedland's territory on NG's request, becoming the Autonomous Region of Nedland on August 14, 2015.
During a brief confusion, the Abeldane Empire and Paravia split Nedland two ways - Abelden getting South Nedland (aka Abeldane Nedland) and Paravia getting the northern territories. NG discovered the deal via his email and objected, which sparked some international tensions. The original unwritten deal allowed Abelden to annex the Cameroonian Territory and only annex the rest of Nedland if a coup overthrew the Paravian government. Abeldane Nedland was eventually transferred to Paravia in accordance with the deal, leaving Abelden with the land formerly part of the Nedlandic Cameroonian Territory.
On 28 November 2015, the Autonomous Region of Nedland was officially disbanded.
State of Nedland
On 12 May 2016, Emperor Patrick I of Paravia became head of state. Nedland renamed itself as the State of Nedland, in accordance with having a monarch as head of state.
The State of Nedland hosted one autonomous area, Hiddleston and Alonia, which was formed from the remains of Quetico Street. It hosted the Quetico Microinternational Stock Exchange (QMSE) from 9 to 14 June 2016, before it seceded under leader Henry Twain.
Second Paravian Era
Nedland declared independence from Paravia as the "Khanate of Nedland" on September 23, 2016.
Nedland seceded from the empire almost a month and a half from its annexation date, on November 14. They did so illegally, disregarding Paravian laws on formal secession. Initially, Paravian attempts to force NG to secede formally proved fruitless, and the Empire still recognized Nedland as part of Paravia. Several half-hearted attempts at referendums to leave were rejected by the government as inadequate.
After much controversy, NG agreed to stop his revolt and petition the government to secede with Nedland. The vote to leave was nearly unanimous, with 8 for and 1 against.
At the same time, another illegal secession movement led by NG in Abeldane Nedland received similar criticism. Technically, the dispute has not been solved because NG never held an official referendum. However, after revoking NG's Abeldane citizenship and naming him a persona non grata in Abeldane lands, Abelden finally decided to rescind their claim of sovereignty over Abeldane Nedland.
The Duchy of Romitria in Karnia-Ruthenia seceded legally one day after those pieces of Nedland in Paravia and Abelden, by informing the Emperor and allowing the Imperial Chamber to hold a formal vote on the secession of Romitria. The vote concluded in support of Romit secession, and Romitria was allowed to secede.
After Nedland's secession, the government reformed into a khanate, and NG was crowned the Second Genghis Khan. However, in February, NG started a campaign to make Nedland serious again, banning all comical activity, as well as memes, from being used in politics. He disbanded the Ovaltine and Neutral parties because of this.
Merger with Khorashan
On August 2017, Nedland's merging with the Empire of Khorașan was formalized. Nedland officially became one of two constituent countries, along with Khorașan
