The Kingdom of Saxeberg is a currently inactive micronation founded on 12 March 2013. It is located in Amesbury, England(UK).

Etymology

Saxeberg comes from the German Sachsen meaning Saxony and berg meaning mountain. Despite Saxeberg not being on a mountain, it does sit on a hill.

History

The town of Amesbury in which Saxeberg is located was a powerful location in Saxon England, being the meeting place of Parliament possibly due to its close existence with Stonehenge. In recent years Amesbury has become a large industrial/distribution area due to being on the A303. Saxeberg makes use of the A303 for everyday needs.

Formation period (1999-2013)

The house in which the capital of Saxeberg sits, including the majority of the land, was developed in 1999 and the family of King Owen I moved in soon after. The family lived there for 14 years before the kingdom was created.

Early history

The Kingdom was created by King Owen I on 12 March 2013.

Government and politics

The Kingdom is run by the Royal Council, the Monarch, and Prime Minister. These officials sit in on sessions with the 4 councilors who are appointed Knights in their first session(if not already knights or nobles). Two offices currently exist; the Home Office and the Foreign Office. The councilors are then appointed Minister or Deputy Minister for each respective ministry.

Law and order

The Saxeberg Police Force is the official body that maintains law and order within Saxeberg. With so few citizens, crime is virtually non-existent; thus, the Police Force is a voluntary organization that responds to calls when necessary.

Military

Currently, Saxeberg maintains the Saxeberg Defence Force amounting to 1 troop and 3 aircraft. Currently, Saxeberg maintains a year-long contract with "Saxon AeroSystems" to develop a UAV for surveillance.

Geography and climate

Weather in Saxeberg reflects that of the British Isles, being quite wet and sometimes snowy in winter with humid but fairly warm summers. The geography of Saxeberg is mostly urban, but also extends into the countryside which consists mostly of fields.

Economy

Saxeberg technically maintains no economy of its own, with all citizens being educated and working outside of the country's borders. However, Saxon AeroSystems is a promising business venture.

Media

The Saxeberg Times deals with news in and around Saxeberg, currently maintained by the monarch King Owen I.
