The Kingdom of Suthrig is a micronation founded on 3 August 2015. It is an absolute monarchy ruled by HRH King Stephen I.

Etymology

Suthrig was founded in Surrey. In Anglo-Saxon times, Surrey was known as Suthrige, and it is from there that Suthrig got its name.

History

Suthrig was founded on 3 August 2015 by HRH King Stephen I. The king and his friend Luke announced that the grassy area they and their friends hung out on would be its own country, with Stephen as the King. Three other friends joined later that day, and two more joined the next day. On 8 August, the king found out that what they had made was a micronation, and on 11 August he discovered MicroWiki.

Government and politics

Suthrig is a Kingdom which is an absolute monarchy. The King holds all the power, but is very popular and listens to what the citizens say. Because Suthrig only has seven citizens (with the king included), most things are decided on through votes rather than the king giving orders. Prime Minister Sam is the King's third-in-command, but he is appointed instead of elected.

Law and order

Suthrig does not have a police force. It is the most crime-free country in the world, with no crimes having been committed there since it was founded.

Foreign relations

Suthrig is currently looking for allies. See the forums for a thread where other micronations can apply.

Military
