New Flanders, previously known as the Archduchy of New Flanders, was a Tributary state of the Shorewell. It is a former state of Desi Empire and unincorporated territory of Nedland, and is administered by Alexander von Hapsburg. The territory was at one time disputed between Shorewell and Nedland, due to confusion in the diplomatic discussion.
