History and Information

Internal History

New Anglia was established by William Geoffrey Harwar Keating on the 1st of May 2011 in his house in Peterborough, originally naming it the Commonwealth of Voltar. A commonwealth in the thesaurus is another word for Republic, and the Baron's original title was a Magnet (Ma-ag-ne-T) which in the thesaurus was another word for president, after a while, he became a Baron and stated he was a monarch. Seeing he could not have a republic with a monarch, he changed it into the Grand Barony of Voltar on the 10th of June 2011. A Barony is a defunct term for an area of land governed by a baron. On the 1st of January, the nation became the Kingdom of New Anglia.

On the 26th of May 2011, Voltar gained 25 members making it have membership almost twice that of the Republic of Molossia.

On the 12th of June 2011, King William declared the Capital City would by Atherstone named after the Avenue he lived in as a boy.

14 June Voltar signed the Dale City-Atherstone Treaty after King Danny Clarke I

On the 18th of June New Anglia (then Voltar) made its' first Pilgrimage to Walsingham, a place in England famed for having a replica of the house in Gallalie where the Angel Gabriel told Mary about the Infant Jesus.

The Royal Standard is a flag version of the Keating (New Anglian) Coat of Arms, King William's personal flag is the Royal Standard with his Monogram K W meaning K for King and W as in William, being he is the first King of New Anglia to use the name William he does not need to put his number down.

Nathanial Foster became the Prime Minister of New Anglia on the 12th of July 2011, his term would later for nearly a year.

The King has started a collection of thing that are important to New Anglia's History.

Starting on Wednesday the 7th of September 2011 a referendum on whether to change the name of Voltar to Nosterland, Noster is Latin for Our so Nosterland means Our land. A new option was added on the 12th of October: New Anglia.

The Poll has ended and the Grand Barony would become a Kingdom and would be called New Anglia with a new flag, Coat of Arms and New National Colours, the Official change was the 1st of January 2012

On the 28th of December 2011, a Cyber Colony was added to the nation the Crown Dependency of Vasche with Prince Patrick as the Executive Power of this new self-governing dominion.

On the 3rd of March 2012, the Monarchy became an Enlightened Monarchy, the Powers of the monarchy are extend beyond the boundaries of the Constitution of New Anglia the Reign Monarch and any future Regent will have full Executive, Legislative and Judicial Power over the Royal Council. This has been known as the 3rd Amendment.

On the 16th of June 2012, the nation made its second visit (it's first as New Anglia ) to Walsingham, sadly King William forgot his camera.

King William has used New Anglia as a setting in an ongoing series of short films and a review series, creating a mythos of science and magic with himself in the middle of it.

On the 1st of January 2014, due to the build-up of other projects not allowing him time to work on New Anglia, King William decide to call the Kingdom defunct. However, he also decided to continue with the fictional New Anglia.

External History and Foreign Relations

The first Micronation to be allied with New Anglia was the Kingdom of the Dale Empire, one reason being that King Danny Clarke I is a Liverpool F. C. supporter and the Coat of Arms of Voltar (At that time) contained the Liver Bird. These two nations started the E. U. (M) (European Union (Micronational) but became disbanded. The Nation is now the Dale Republic.

The seconded Micronation was the Empire of Arboria, who had joined the E. U. (M), all three nation joined in the Triple Alliance. The Empire then join with two other nations: the Kingdom of the Oakland and the Empire of Dallmark, all three of these nations became the Holy Dallmark Empire, with the leader of the first two: Felix I as the Holy Empire of Dallmark. When the three nations came to this Wiki, the Barony was not included in the reform of the Alliance. The Marxist People's Republic of Burkland was found a suitable replacement.

The Emperor of Dallmark Felix I or as his user: Kokoszkingston, became inactive due to a block of his user, the page of his micronation was deleted, however, the block was supposed lasted for two days, 22–24 August, and as this was written on the 28th. Felix returned to the site but under the Username: Monarchia, he has left a message on the King's User Discussion Page, however, he has not corresponded since.

28 June 2011 New Anglia accepted an Alliance with The Fumetsu Empire, however, is seems inactive at the present time.

The State of Bascal became an ally.

Legatia is also an ally.

North Crawford has been added to the list of Allies.

Currently, the Royal Council is inactive due to ministers parting ways with King William.

The Liver Bird

The National Bird of New Anglia

The Earliest use of the Bird been associated with the then-town of Liverpool was on a seal dating from the 1350s which is now held in the British Museum. The possible species is long debated, the seal that King John had to give Liverpool the right to be a Borough back in 1207, in honour of his patron saint, frequently used the device of an eagle- associated with St. John.

By the 17th century, the origins of the bird had begun to be forgotten, with references to the bird as a cormorant, still a common bird in the coastal waters near Liverpool. The 17th century mace refers to a "leaver", while a manual on heraldry from later in the century confuses matters further by assuming this term is related to the old Low Dutch word lefter, meaning spoonbill - a bird rarely found in northern England.

The College of Arms refers to a cormorant, adding that the sprig in the mouth is of laver, a type of seaweed, thus implying that the bird's appellation comes from the sprig.

The bird thus appears to have originally been intended to be an eagle but is now officially a cormorant. Many modern interpretations of the symbol are of a cormorant, although several - notably that on the emblem of Liverpool Football Club - distinctly show the short head and curved beak more readily associated with a bird of prey.

It is commonly seen on top of the Liver Building, it's also found on many coats of arms in Liverpool, most notably Liverpool Football Club.


Most World sports are allowed in New Anglia but it also has its own sport: Crickleball.


The National Sport designed and invented by King William, the name was voted for on the Forums of MicroWiki. As of April 2013, no games of the sport has been played, primarily due to the lack of grounds.


1.At Least 5 players per-team.

2. There has to be a Racker (the person how holds the bat) and a thrower and at least 4 fieldsmen (the remaining player on the Throwers side).

3. There is a net behind the Racker if the Ball hits the net then the racker is out and 1 point goes to the thrower's team.

4. If a fieldsman catches the ball before it hits the ground then the Racker is out.

5. The Racker has to circulate the marked ground as many times as possible before the ball is returned to the Thrower, the more rounds the more points.

6. When all of the Rackers sides have played, the team change sides.

7. The Team Captain of the Racker side has to play first and the Thrower has to be the Captain of the team.
