Jaeckel, officially the Kingdom of Jaeckel, is a fledgling Anglophone micronation, an enclave surrounded by the United Kingdom. Jaeckel is ruled as a Constitutional Monarchy, a King with severely limited powers sits as head of state. Due to the small population, there has never yet been need for a parliament as all citizens vote on laws, however it is expected that as the Kingdom expands the need will arise for one. As Jaeckel was only founded very recently, there has been little opportunity for it to make its mark on the world however this is hoped to change. Jaeckel was officialy founded on Friday, 13th May 2011, in an attempt to prove against the unluckiness of that day. Jaeckel currently does not control any territory.

History

Foundation

The Kingdom of Jaeckel was founded on the 13th May 2011, by James Green. It was his second attempt at a micronation, but the first disbanded after only a week. The attempt was inspired by a renewed interest in micronations following the discovery of a more thriving community than the founder had previously known of. At first, the population was only 1. The original plan of the nation was to have a vizier- a chief advisor-cum-prime minister figure. The person to fill this role was found on the 16th May in Alicia Ferriter. She had the title Duchess of Rampton conferred upon her and as such, the population became two.
