Founded on the 7th of October, 2013, The Federal District of Levaria is the capital of the Sorrenian Federation, and the founding place of the nation. It is governed by Mayor Damian Billbrough and is a Federal District of the Sorrenian Federation, and as such most obey Sorrenian law and decrees.

Toponymy

It is unclear how the name "Levaria" was chosen, however it was most likely chosen out of respect for "Lartania", a deceased state which was transformed into Eurania to the north of Sorrenia.

Flag

The flag is simply the Sorrenian Emblem on a white background with red vertical strips at either side. It was designed to be simple, and the colour scheme bears similar meanings to the Sorrenian National Flag.

Micronational History

Levaria was the founding place of Kozlova, the predecessor nation to Sorrenia. Due to its central place in the Mainland, and the fact that the majority of British Kozlovans attended the school, it became an important place for Kozlovan life and politics. When Kozlova fell during the January Revolution, a new nation by the name of 'Sorrenia' was created, and Levaria became the new capital as it was a neutral ground with no political bias.

It was later questioned whether Levaria should remain the capital of Sorrenia, however Miles of Sorrenia, the President of Sorrenia remained adamant that it was a successful capital, and should remain that way.

The capital remains to this day predominantly symbolic, due to the fact that many members of the National Assembly are unable to attend, however elements of the Executive Assembly occasionally holds meetings in order to discuss affairs, and the Politburo of the Sorrenian Workers Party has been known to hold meetings in Levaria.

Non-Micronational History

Levaria is a school called St Leonard's Catholic School Durham, in which all the founding members of Sorrenia attended.

The school was founded in 1936 as the St Leonard's Catholic Central School in the former Springwell Hall, a coalmine owner's house acquired in 1935 by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle. The separate Sixth Form building, known as the Martyrs' Building, is said to stand on ground once used for the execution of Roman Catholic martyrs, such as Saint John Boste, one of the patron saints of the school.

Marty's Building, also known as the Sixth Form Block

During the era of the tripartite system, the school became a secondary modern and turned comprehensive in 1970 when the system was abolished by the LEA. The sixth form was opened that same year. During the last full Ofsted Inspection in 2007 the school was given an overall rating of good.

Geography

Entrance into Levaria from the East

As stated, Levaria is a school, located inside and around Springwell Hall. Since it's creation as a school, numerous buildings have been created in order to provide more facilities for students, the most recent of which was the "Martyr's Building", also known as the Sixth Form Block. The School also has a large yard towards the south, as well as a small area of forest, often used for Manhunt (similar to hide and seek) during P.E lessons. There is also a large obelisk towards the south below the yard, located near a tennis court, also often used in P.E for various activities. On the other side of the A691 (largest road in the area), Levaria also contains a large playing field, with two football pitches, a running track and a long jump sand pit. The field is also open to the public for recreational uses.

Achievements in St Leonards School

St Leonards School is known for its achievement in many elements, both academically and physically, therefore it makes for the perfect place for a cultural capital. Football is a large part of the school, with the 2013 Yr 9 class winning the national cup, as well as other years doing incredibly well in their respective groups.

St Leonard's also offers a high level of academic learning, with 78% of students achieving 5 good GCSE's or equivalents. The school has a large science department, boasting 10 laboratories in which Physics, Chemistry and Biology are taught.

St Leonard's also attends many academic tournaments, such as the Chemistry challenge and the Mock Trial, in which the teams usually do well, such as the Yr 10 2014 Chemistry challenge group.

Levaria was therefore situated in St Leonard's due to the high levels of culture and achievement, as the founding members all had an attachment to the school, and wanted their capital to reflect this.
