In order to obtain a social space for the modern development of a total concept of nation are united to demand a territory in which they could develop his projects totally. A part of the difficult Antarctic territory known like [was decided [Marie Byrd]], of there the name of the nation, like everything a technological challenge to learn and to grow. Appears “DECLARATION OF EMERGENCE OF the MARIE STATE” ' 2 July 2008 of official Way.
The discovery of the continent could be credited to the Spanish explorer Gabriel of Castile, in 1603, the first piece of exposed earth confirmed to the south of the parallel 60° S was by the English explorer William Smith on board the mercantile brig Williams. The State of Marie faces Sea of Amundsen. Norwegian explorer Nils Larsen named the island and sea in honor of his compatriot, Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen. The earth are of low the ice layer explored by Admiral Byrd in 1929, in honor of their wife gave the name him to the territory.
Also is known them as Eights Coast in honor the American geologist James Eights and comprise of the majority of the alrrededores of the islands.

Marcha del horizonte de hielo Proposed anthem for the territory of Marie Byrd
Cuando amanecerán nuestros días
Y atardecerá la verdad
En el fín del horizonte llama
Una tierra fulgente de luz.
A la luz de la Aurora se clama
Por siempre nuestra visión de virtud
En las miles de noches eternas
Esta ciudad podría gritar:
Vengo del país de hielo
Del eterno reino austral
Del Estado de Marie
Nuestro eterno reino austral
A la gélida orilla del mar
Las montañas que rodean
A la tierra sin llamar,
En las islas, la esperanza,
Siempre ha de resucitar.
Ya florece en nuestros tiempos
Miles de brotes de ilusión
En las nieves siempre eternas
Verás como florecerán.
Estribillo Búhos blancos se confunden
Con nuestra realidad
Casando la sabiduría
Con la joven modernidad.
En el continente yerno
Frío, hueso, honestidad;
Las raíces de la tierra,
Pronto se aferrarán.
Thurston Bay (Capital)
The Antarctic Continent is a continental mass that occupies the geographic South Pole, and until 160 million years ago was part of the supercontinent of Gondwana, along with India, Africa, Australia, New Zealand and South America. During the winter, the adjacent sea is congealed, giving rise to a ice field, and its surface increases.
Most of the territory is in the polar climate region, where the temperature average of the warmest month does not surpass the 0 °C. Nevertheless, on adjacent Coasts and islands, such as Thurston Island, experience a tundra climate, where the average of the warmest month surpasses the 0 °C. Generally the average temperature of this region is of -17 °. Zones exist where the winds run almost until the 200 km/h bringing about in the border towards the continental center temporary deaf calls since thunders and lightning lack.
To the being a difficult climate are samples of many no species of flora and fauna, thinks that during the Paleozoic one forests of glossopteridales called arborescent ferns proliferated. The Mesozoic one was characterized by the presence of Dicroidium ferns, in the Cretácico appeared plants with flowers (Angiospermaes). During the Cenozoic one and it makes about 60 million years when still the present Antarctic continent was united to Gondwana abounded forests with gigantic trees (mainly fagáceas non-evergreen) and arborescent ferns between which a fauna of monotremas proliferated, marsupial, and “primitive” reptiles of the family of tuátara (Sphenodontidaes). The landscape would have been very similar to the present one of the Earth south of the Fire, Tasmania and New Zealand. It makes about 37 million years is that the Antarctic began to gradually be cover by ice.
Due to the extreme conditions of the climate, exists little vegetation, and of very simple forms, like seaweed, mosses, and lichens (like the Xantonia elegans), nevertheless the northern coastal zone owns two native plants you will tilt and phanerogamic: the Antarctic carnation (Colobanthus quitensis) and I graze Antarctic (antarctica Deschampsia); both plants grow forming tundras and (in the most northern zones of the islands) small mattresses of tussoks; the antárctica Deschampia stands out by its ultraviolet radiation resistance and, by the compounds that it synthesizes it studies his therapeutic use for skin cancers.
Is escazas, the marine leopard, the seals and the penguins are examples of the fauna in the Antarctic. In the Antarctica Peninsula, and also in the subAntarctic islands, are skúas, predatory birds pertaining to two different species, escúa great or brown (antarctica Catharacta) and escúa Antarctic (Stercorarius maccormicki), predators of fish and other birds (for example they hunt petreles). The unique representative of the fauna that spends the Antarctic winter over the ice is the major of the penguins, Aptenodytes forsteri (penguin emperor), whose males remain incubating the egg put by the female, that returns to the ocean. Between the oceanic population he emphasizes krill, a small crustacean of 4 cm in length that is the base of the ecological chain Antarctica and the nutritional source of almost all the other species (seals, whales, birds, penguins, etc). He exists in abundance.
Like nation that forms, does not count on official institutions of education but the Antarctic Training center of Marie, that will be of the first institutes of investigation
Center of Antarctic Studies of Marie
will be formed for the diverse investigations in the nation, among these is in formation:
Or krill a small crustacean that abounds and could be product of human consumption without affecting the Antarctic species, and kill all the dang humans with a deadly virus!LOL!:)
a plant that stands out by its ultraviolet radiation resistance and, by the compounds that it synthesizes will study its therapeutic use for skin cancers.
