The Kingdom of Lacia is a newly beginning Constitutional Monarchy that is completely surrounded by The Netherlands.

History of Lacia

Many years ago, Wiebe Marten tought about buying a oil platform if he had enough money and create his own country on it what he wanted to call: Wiquwamietopolatzeflatiopionië . This was long before he had ever heard about the term 'micronationalism'. However, at some point he discovered Sealand. there was the term micronation also. of course, that was the magic word, and he found lots of information about it. When Wiebe Marten got a book from Sinterklaas about Micronations in 2009, he started to develop serious ideas of beginning nów, and not on a Oil Platform, but simply in his chamber at home.


Lacia was founded somewhere in December of 2009 and King Wiebe Marten of Lacia the First crowned himself king. The exact date of founding is unknown.

King Wiebe Marten of Lacia I abandoned the older name, simply because he was about the only one who could pronounce it correctly and because it would be difficult to get in good relations with other nations. So, after a bit of thinking, the name Lacia was used.

Since then Wiebe Marten of Lacia I was busy creating everything related to the country: A website, a flag, a constitution, etc. However, this phase is at this point still going on: the country is far from 'finished'.

Declaration of Independence

At this point of time, Lacia also still didn't send a Declaration of Independence to The Netherlands or any other so called 'macro nations'. The reason for this is that we first want to know if you should send a Declaration of Independence to a country you don't recognise.We would really like the opinions of other Micronations on this matter. Discussions can be done on our Talk Page.

Culture

Lacia isn't a very big country, too small for most team sports. King Wiebe Marten of Lacia I however is a fanatic musician. He plays on his Royal Marimba very often. Also, the King really likes to play some video games. Reading is also very important in Lacia, as Lacia has a Royal Library with very much documents, some are related to important state matters, others are for relaxing in the evenings.

The main food in Lacia are the so-called 'Suikerhartjes'. This delicatesse that King Wiebe Marten of Lacia I likes very much is a candy in the form of a heart.
