The Grand Duchy of Liangsi, more commonly known as Leónsle or Liangsi, is a micronation in Massachusetts, United States. It was first founded when Grand Duke Leo Akien, decided to claim the area around the City of Boston as a sovereign nation on 30 October 2019. It consists of the provinces of New Edensburg, Rye, and New Brewsting, with the capital of Aden, and major cities being Fort Warren, Fort Andrew, and Milon. Its government consists of two houses in its parliament, the House of Lords and the House of Commons.

Etymology

The name was created based on the Spanish word León, meaning lion, showing Leónsle courage and strength as a nation. It was first conceived back in 2017 for a small but failed nation-state. Later, the Grand Duchy of Leónsle adopted this name of its previous incarnation to bring a sense of pride in former members to rejoin and help the nation prosper. On September 9th, 2020, the name was changed to reflect the Asian culture of the nation.

National symbols

Flag

The national flag of Leungsi is a flag with a 9:5 ratio on a dark blue background. On the dark blue background are two stripes, representing the crests of the waves, and between them a red stripe representing the sunset and sunrise often seen reflected by the ocean. In the top, left corner are two stars diagonal from one another, representing the two lighthouses within Leungsi (Boston Light and Deer Island Light).

Seal

The national seal is an image of Boston Light, with the Boston Harbor Islands behind it in the background. This image is surrounded by the words "The Seal of the Grand Duchy of Leungsi" which in turn is surrounded by a wreath of maple leaves in reference to the large number of maple trees within Leungsi.

History

The Grand Duchy of Leungsi, first known as the Principality of Leónsle, was first established as a small trading kingdom on the edge of the Boston Harbor on Castle Island, by several members who lived near each other, all growing interest in micronationality, after discovering about the concept of micronations. They decided to form the Principality of Leónsle, which was established as a trading kingdom, due to the nation being surrounded by water on almost all edges. After a couple of years of isolation beside a couple of small and inactive nations and a falling out between several of the key members, several key members declared themselves independent from the nation and formed the Republic of Castle Island, which lasted for a week, before being reintegrated into Leónsle. After unrest in the inaction of several high ranked members its government disbanded and dissolved. It later reformed into the Kingdom of Leónsle, which was a short-lived kingdom with a life of about 2 months before collapsing due to its unstable government, which constantly reformed several times. Its current iteration was established to reform the government, along with establishing foreign relations to stabilize the government from further unwanted instability, after discovering the MicroWiki community. In 2020, the parliament voted to disband, leading to several members leaving. The parliament has since been reformed by the remaining members. Currently, Leungsi is located on the Boston Harbor Islands.

Towns

Leónsle currently stretches over the Boston Harbor Islands, with 5 major cities, Aden on Castle Island, Fort Warren on George's Island, Fort Andrew on Peddocks Island, Milon on World’s End and Brewster located between the Brewster Islands.

Politics and government

The Government consists of 3 branches, the Royal Family, the House of Lords, appointed by the Grand Duke, and the House of Commons, elected by the general populous.

Law and order

The Royal Court of Leónsle along with its branches such as the Royal Police Force help keep the peace in the nation and check laws to make sure they are just and fair.
