Wallenia known officaly as the Kingdom of Wallenia formerly known as Vroopa and Drosmania full cerimonial name United Kingdoms of De Waal, Klinkenberg and Kronstadt is a small self proclaimed island nation. Wallenia consists of 2 islands.. Klinkenberg and De Waal Located in the city of Oegstgeest its surrounded by Dutch waters. With an area of approximately 377 by 55 feet (17 by 55m), and a population of 43 it is the smallest state in the world by both area and population. Mainland Wallenia does not has a land border altought its capital Kronstadt, Klinkenberg and Wallenstad borders the Netherlands, Wallenia does not have a natual higest point, Wallenia is the lowest country of the world as Wallenia is 100% below sea level, Wallenia is member of the Micronational Virtual Football Federation, and an observer member of the Micronational Assembly

In the early 2010s, Shady Morsi, then a student, began promoting the idea that Wallenia and its surrounding territory should become independent from the Netherlands. Morsi claimed that Wallenia had existed as a terra nullis since at least 1993 , and that it should be recognised as a sovereign kingdom.

Altough inactive for most of its history, Vroopa is restored after Shady Morsi discovered that he still holds the title of King of the Vroopans, The next day King Joseph, Renamed Vroopa into Wallenia to honor the macronational name of the island

Etymology

the name Wallenia, comes from the macronational name of the island, De Waal (the Waal) meaning the water side (waterkant) where the island is located on, The island however is unoticed by the Municipality of Oegstgeest and is often seen as terra nullius on both google maps and municipal archives

Previous names

Pre-micronational era

a map of the area. Known as Poelmeer, the island of de Waal is absent

Its not much known about Vroopa before its annexation by Viadalvia, It was however seen as a complete terra nullis due to the small size of the island, The island was likely artificial or was created after some adjustments where made in the chanel

Viadalvia

Flag of Steingrad

the Viadalvian Navy annexed Vroopa and established the Federal Republic of Steingrad named after Stein Dros, who discoverd the island Steingrad became a very powerfull republic within Viadalvia, Steingrad was also a stronghold for the Viadalvian navy, Aswell for all left wing parties in Viadalvia, Steingrad often voted for socialist candidates and was the only federal entity that voted for Stein Dros in the 2014 Viadalvian presidential election

Durring the Viadalvian Civil War, Steingrad declared independence, although it was short lived, After the Viadalvian Civil War it was re annexed by Viadalvia,

Independence

After Timo Vink won the 2014 Viadalvian Presidental Elections, Steingrad became independent once again and renamed into Vroopa, Queen Fleor becomes the first soverein head of state of Vroopa, One year later she ablicated and her brother Stein Dros (who became Hendrik Kees I by Vroopan customs), under Hendrik Kees I Vroopa was renamed into Drosmania and was a single party state his rule was marked by dramatic political and social change. He was the first Vroopan ruler who attempted to modernize Vroopa on Western designs and to get more involved with the micronational community He reformed the kingdom by establishing the Island Medal, Adopting the Montevideo Convention and establishing a formal flag and coat of arms. He ablicated on 10 March 2017 due educational problems Soon Morsi was proclaimed as King of the Vroopans by Diderirk I, Morsi was inaugurated (Vroopans kings where never crowned) on 10 March 2017 in 2018 Vroopa's government cased to function since most of the members either resigned or left micronationalism all toghether

However on 19 December 2019, Shady Morsi, King of the Vroopans maintains that the government wasn't dissolved. This claim comes from the fact that neither the King or the Ciitzens council had dissolved the government. Morsi decided to use their power to state that the government hadn't been dissolved and that it is being revived. Later on 2019 the king called a new Citizens Council in order to aid with revival. It is currently undergoing a process of "resuming government activities," or trying to revive the original kingdom. The nation was renamed into Wallenia to restore the macronational name of the island (De Wallen)

A second revivial was due to the COVID-19 pandemic when Joseph once declared that the nation will be re-restored to not abandon Vroopan/Drosmanian/Wallene history, Soon he met with the former monarchs of Vroopa on zoom proclaming the reawakining of Wallenia,

Wallenian Realm

Wallenia's only neighbour the Principality of Yakklam was inactive and the nation was seen as brain dead, Seeing an oppertunity to expend Wallenia, neogiations between the Prince of Yakklam and the King of Wallenia happend on April 26th During this time, Yakklam ceased to exist as an independent country and was reformed into the Grand Duchy of Klinkerberg with the king of Wallenia also being the grand duke of Klinkerberg while the former Prince of Yakklam retiring from micronationalism forever

On May 5th, Wallenia annexed Klinkerberg as an integral part of the kingdom

Government

The Government of Wallenia takes place in a framework of aconstuitional non hereditary monarchy and of a nonpartisan system. The King is the head of state, leads the foreign policy, and is the Commander-in-chief of the Defense Forces. There is no legislative power but there is a Parliament of Wallenia that has an adversory role, and the government has limited rights to amend or extend legislation. The King of Wallenia has the power of veto over parliamentary decisions, and appoints the Grand Governor who takes over the daily rule of the Kingdom The judiciary is independent of the executive and the legislature. The Judiciary consists of two systems, regular courts and administrative courts, headed by the Supreme Court and the Supreme Administrative Court, respectively. Administrative courts process cases where official decisions are contested. There is no "Constitutional Court" - the constitutionality of a law can be contested only as applied to an individual court case.

Monarchy

King Joseph, King of the Wallenes
Jasper, Prince of Delarivebox, Current Grand Governor

The king combines legislative, and executive, functions and royal decrees form the basis of the country's legislation, The Walene Monarchy dominates the political system. The number of princes is estimated to be at least 4, Despite the monarch's power, Its rarely used Wallenia has a de facto head of government known as the Grand Governor is elected by the Citizens Council and confirmed by the monarch . Usually, the Grand Governor is a good friend or accointance of the monarch.

The Wallenian monarchy is critized by outsiders as ilegitimate or a baseless monarchy the time the constitution was adopted, it was anticipated that monarchs would be chosen from the outgoing monarch. and has no dynasty However, this is not required by the constitution, so, for this reason, Wallenia can be considered a elective republic rather than a constitutional monarchy. However, as all of the heads of state appoined by the outgoing monarch plus the original title of the Wallenian monarchy was king,

Political Parties

The former Kingdom of Vroopa introduced political parties in 2018 Back then political parties have a very bad reputation in Wallenia. Parties are accused of being a hotbed of corruption and favoritism; For them, power always comes first, and ideology and government are at best of secondary importance.

The Constitution of Wallenia banned the existence of political parties, although political assosiations exist in the House of Delegates PA's exist to promote the country's democracy and political culture and receive grants from the the king and to unite like-minded delegates, PAs are formed in the House of Delegates but are not allowed to participate in elections. In 2021 there were three recognized PA's the House of Delegates, the christian right I Will Uphold, the secular-right In Defence of the Nation and the socialist Roses and Ploughs To be recognized as a national political association, an association must have a political principle program and a minimum of three members in the House of Delegates, such an association may not call itself a party The number of PA's varies,per house of delegate terms

PAs are not allowed to campaign or exist outside the citizens council, All members of the House of Delegates are elected on a nonpartisan basis

Admainstrative Divisions

Wallenia is divided into 6 counties. the County of Wallenstad is in a personal union with the County of Kronstadt, due to Wallenstads strategic importances

Kronstadt has both the highest population and the highest population density of all provinces, but is the second smallest in land area. The largest county by area is Delarivebox and the smallest is Strandenburg. before the annexation of Klinkenberg, New Vroopa was the least populated province. Each county is administered by a count, who is nominated by the Wallenian Crown, subject to approval by the Grand-Governor.

Foreign relations

the Wallene consulate in the Netherlands

Wallenia has a very closed foreign policy. However Wallenia also has a intrest in perserving Dutch micronationalism and tries to assist other Dutch micronations with developing and growing. Wallenia was also created by its leaders with the intention of finding ways to resolve domestic issues, sharing national values with others, and fostering peace and cooperation. Wallenia however attempts to get more out of its bubble, The reason why Wallenia didnt really interacted with the Microwiki Community was due to Wallenian officals not liking "discord diplomacy". and the fact that Wallenia was always isolated from the rest of the micronational world. Nevertheless on May 1st 2021 the House of Delegates unanimously voted to "interact with other micronational entities"

Wallenia also focuses to have closer diplomatic relations with the Republic of Steinbach, this republic was founded in 2019 by Grand Duke, Douwe Steinebach as a microstate in the city of Almelo. the nation is similar to Wallenia as it also claims a terrirory on a pond that was not claimed by the local government

Wallenia also has diplomatic missions in the United States, the Netherlands (consulate) and India

Koppen map of De Waal

The predominant wind direction in Wallenia is southwest, which causes a mild maritime climate, with moderately warm summers and cool winters, and typically high humidity. This is especially true close to the Wallene coastline,

Freezing days—minimum temperature below 0 °C (32 °F)—occur much more often, usually ranging from mid-November to late March, but not rarely measured as early as mid-October and as late as mid-May. If one chooses the height of measurement to be 10 cm (4 in) above ground instead of 150 cm (59 in), one may even find such temperatures in the middle of the summer. On average, snow can occur from November to April but sometimes occurs in May or October too.

Warm days—maximum temperature above 20 °C (68 °F)—are usually found in April to October, but in some parts of the country these warm days can also occur in March, or even sometimes in November or February (usually not in De Bilt, however). Summer days—maximum temperature above 25 °C (77 °F)—are usually measured in De Bilt from May until September, tropical days—maximum temperature above 30 °C (86 °F)—are rare and usually occur only in June to August.
