The word 'Ikonia' derives from an anagram of the King's dog name, Niko. The Greek name Niko is an abbreviation of the name Nicholas, but also a derivation of Nikolaos, which means 'victory of the people'.
Reign of Cameron I
The Kingdom of Ikonia was founded by Cameron I on 19 October 2018 after showing interest in a video about micronation Molossia, Cameron believed having a micronation would benefit himself and his family, and wrote the Declaration of Independence on 19 October 2018.
The Foundation Era is dated to begin on 19 October 2018, the day when the Kingdom of Ikonia declared independence from the United States as the Kingdom of Ikonia. HM Cameron I proclaimed himself the nation's first Monarch, and his brother, Troy Koehler was appointed to the Treasury Of Ikonia. The King of Ikonia then wrote basic acts for the treasury, created ministries and so forth. On Friday 7 December 2018, Ikonia's letter of micronations and declaring themselves as a nation was sent to the governor of Florida, Rick Scott.
The Diplomatic Era is dated to begin on 27 December 2018, with the Diplomatic Recognition Ruling being enacted.This caused all treaties and recognition from the Kingdom of Ikonia and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to become null and disaffective.
The first micronation they restarted relations with is the Catholique Socialist Republic, which the President of, Aidan McGrath, was awarded the Order of the Diaconus, this was later revoked on 25 May 2019 due to constant changes in McGrath's form of government of Quebec.
They also recognized the GUM members unilaterally, on 17 January 2019.
The Ikonian government later published a social media press letter regarding policy on how Ikonian social media accounts shall be run on 21 February 2019.
The Territorial Era is dated to begin after the demonarchization of Kapreburg on 5 April 2019, this lead to the creation of the Kapresh Indies, territory for Kapreburg, Aidan I and Cameron I both helped in making. This later caused Cameron to take more land for himself and the Kingdom, creating the Dominion of the Caribbean, the Dominion of Blake, and Orange County, Uvenia. State-owned companies could now rule territory, given the King approves it. The Ikonian Empire was later revived after being defunct for 3 months on 28 April 2019. A list of all the territorial changes in Ikonia were listed in a news article published by the Ikonia Post.
The Kingdom of Ikonia establishes and maintains diplomatic relations with other nations through the Foreign Office, led by the Ministry. The Minister has the power to grant "states of friendship" and tacit recognition, but official recognition of another nation can only be granted by the monarch.
Ikonia has since sought diplomatic relations mainly through the MicroWiki Community, but also holds friendly relations with other nations such as Molossia.
Ikonia has friendly diplomatic relations with several small nations, including but by no means limited to Duschvaria, and many others.
The total surface area of the Kingdom of Ikonia is approximately 0.053 km2 (13.09 acres).
Most of the Kingdom is residences and empty grassland. Land in the Kingdom is very flat and has no distinctive natural features.
Ikonia, such like Florida, has a humid subtropical climate. Temperatures are usually within a range of 31°C - 35°C in the summer. In the winter, the average temperature range is 22°C - 29°C, but can rarely reach as cold as 8°C.
Ikonia is comprised of several separate pieces of land. The most populated territory, Uvenia - the Ikonia capital - consists of the Royal Residence, a residential property. All main core Ikonian lands hold a representative, and are majorly consisted of lands in Florida, yet with the March of Novaria, land can be foreign as well.

On a daily basis, most executive power is exercised by the Monarch and the Privy Council, with the Supreme Judge of Ikonia helping in judiciary cases involving criminals and prosecutions of Ikonia.
The Kingdom of Ikonia also contains several other lands, which fall under the direct and absolute authority of the Monarch, with Governor General's usually being appointed to represent him and exercise his power; such as the Dominion of Blake or the Dominion of the Caribbean.
- His Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council - led by councillors, responsible for advising the Crown.

Members of the Government
There are currently four enlisted soldiers in the Armed Forces of Ikonia: 3 in the Army, and two in the Air Force. The AFOI can also rely on various foreign volunteers from the state of Florida, and the United States, making the potential overall military strength of the Kingdom better.
The flag of the military is based off the Ikonian flag. It consists of the Gadsden flag with the snake, the crown representing His Majesty and the blue background that stands for loyalty.
The Royal Geographical Society, an agency of the Ministry of Registration, is responsible for collating statistics about the demographics of the Kingdom. The population of the Empire at the start of 2019 was 16. Most new citizens come from acquisition of new territory rather than immigration into an existing territory.
At the end of April 2019, 4 people held honorary Ikonian citizenship. However, these honorary citizens are not considered part of the population as they do not reside in Ikonian territory and are not bound by its laws, nor have rights. Full citizens, who unlike honorary citizens have the right to vote in elections, include residents of Ikonia territory, members of the House of Koehler and more.
There are currently 16 full citizens of the Kingdom - 11 (68%) men and 5 (42.0%) women. Most Ikonian citizens receive both education up to the age of 18 and free healthcare in the United States.
Ikonia's official language, and the only language which is used in day-to-day life, is English. Ikonian is prominently used as a ceremonial language, mainly by the Monarchy in speeches or press letters. Most Ikonia citizens have been or are being educated in the United States of America.
8 out of Ikonia's 16 current citizens (46.6%) have given their religion as Christianity, more specifically, Roman catholicism. Freedom of religion is allowed since the founding of DeBruinism on February 8 2019, yet Buddhism and Christianity are recognized officially by the government.
Ikonia, more specifically the King, believes Ikonia is a free religious nation, this being a result of the Religion Ruling on February 8 2019. All religions must be treated equally under the law (as long as it does not hurt or damage someone physically, mentally, and in any other way.)
Ikonia's culture is mainly influenced by American culture. However, there are strong traces of Norwegian culture, and Transterran culture within Ikonia during different holidays. Internet culture is also very common in Ikonia, such as with memes. Demographically and ethnically, Ikonia considers itself to be very diverse.
