Kleinland is a micronation in the Scottish county of South Ayrshire. Its name comes from the Dutch/German word for small, klein. It was formally member of the Alliance of Micronations.

History

Kleinland was created in early 2008 from the ashes of the Gleeb Empire (King Andrew's first micronation) by King Andrew I and his friends. Soon most of them forgot about Kleinland except King Andrew, his brother (Sir Tom) and his cousin (Grand Army General Adam). Despite this, it officially fell apart on Independence Day when Sir Tom refused to attend the ceremony.

In January 2009, it was restarted by the King as a republic and was no longer regarded as a serious micronation by him. It claims to have 'invaded' numerous coastal island islands along the west coast of Scotland.

Military

Kleinland has its own army, air force and navy. The army is equipped with big sticks and crossbows which fire sucker darts. The air force has a remote controlled helicopter (Mx-1), a 20m solar inflated barrage balloon and a small fleet of gliders. The navy is quite small and consists only of remote controlled submarine.
