The Kingdom of Legiálle (Royaume de Legiálle/Wayom nan Lijall), informally as Legiálle, is a micronation founded on 13 September 2017.
Government and Politics
Legiálle is officially an Absolute Monarchy, where executive, legislative, and judicial authority is specified and invested in the person of the monarch.
Legiálle’s official court is referred to at Le Palais de la Ferrière. Though not an official Palace, the seat of governing - and, thus, the ‘working’ capital of Legiálle - is wherever the Sovereign is present. The Queen is supported by the Crown Council, an executive council that advise the Sovereign on policies. In addition to the Principal Counselor - chief adviser to the Sovereign - other members include:
- Counselor for Fundraising Affairs
- Counselor for Caribbean Affairs
- Counselor for Royal Honours
- Counselor for Legal Affairs
- Counselor for Educational Affairs
Legiálle meets its day-to-day costs from the Public Purse, monies raised through various services and products (flags, coins, etc.) Most of the day-to-day costs include expenditures related to creating products (i.e. purchasing flags and coins, buying supplies for letters of nobility) and charitable activities. The Queen receives an annual payment in her official capacity as Sovereign, as well as partially or fully reimbursing expenses relating to Her Majesty’s capacity as Head of State and Government (i.e. official travel). In the event the Crown Purse is unable to meet its financial obligations, it may petition the Monarch’s Privy Purse as an alternative to issuing bonds or borrowing from lenders.
The Privy Purse is the personal income and assets of the Souverain de Legiálle, deriving its incomes from The Queen’s personal assets and incomes. The form of payment from the Privy Purse comes in the form of a ten-year promissory note, issued by The Queen in a personal capacity, with an interest rate of no more than 5 per-cent. The loan offer does not define a payment schedule, allowing the Government to pay back at its own pace.
The Queen of the Legiálles is head of state and government, currently Marie-Adélina I. She plays a ceremonial and actual role in Legiálle. As de jure head of government, she has an active role in policy-making and the legislative process, giving her input and assent to all proposals. Though The Queen rules as an absolute monarch, she depends on the advice of the Crown Council. From their advice, Her Majesty gives or withholds her assent on bills. As Monarch, she appoints the various Counsellors and Secretaries of State. All serve at the pleasure of The Queen.
Legiálle encourages foreign relations with entities, especially those that align with one of their key policies. At present, they maintain formal diplomatic relations with Royal House of DeHerrera, Commonwealth of Dracul, Karnia-Ruthenia Commonwealth, and the Decrecy of Vilthia.
The Coquilles Legiálles (CL), commonly known as Coquilles, is the currency of Legiálle. The conversion rate is 1 USD for 10 CL. It replaces the Cœur Legiallois effective 30 August 2018. The unit has denominations of 10, 20, 50, and 100.
Legiálles culture is inspired by the cultural legacy of the Caribbean, primarily Haiti. As such, English, French, and Legiálles Creole are spoken; official proclamations are usually written in English only, with rare exceptions.
