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 administrative center is referred to at La Cour Royale de la Ferrière. It is considered the seat of governing - and, thus, the ‘working’ capital of Legiálle - wherever the Sovereign is present. The Queen is supported by the Crown Council, an executive council who advise the Sovereign on policies. The Council acts as both an advisory board and executive government. At times, The Queen may call upon The General Council to vote on issues. Consisting of all citizens aged 18 and older, the direct democratic chamber is summoned and dissolved at Her Majesty’s consent.
Legiálle meets its day-to-day costs from the Public Purse, monies raised through various products (flags, coins, etc.) Most of the day-to-day costs includes expenditures related to creating products and fundraising projects. The Queen receives a small, annual payment in her official capacity as Sovereign, as well as partially or fully reimbursed expenses relating to Her Majesty’s capacity as Head of State and Government. In the event the Crown Purse is unable to meet its financial obligations, monies are provided by 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 des Legiálles.
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.
