Marieland (Weisslandic:Mareeländ) is one of the three administrative units of the Republic of Weissland. It was founded as an independent state on December 10, 2009, but since June 1, 2010 it became, along with Booth Island, a constituent of the Republic.

History

Upon its creation, the Republic of West Antarctica claimed the entire Marie Byrd Land, unaware, at the time, of the existence of other Antarctic micronations in that area. Republic of West Antarctica withdrew the claims on the territories already claimed by Marie State and Federated States of Antarctica before its admission to AMU.

On June 1, 2010, the territories of 3 republics were given as a mandate to AMU, as a gesture of good will, to ease the disputes on already micronationally overcrowded continent. On the same day, Booth Island was given the status of the constituent of the Republic, and the remaining two republics were merged to form Marieland, now an administrative unit.

The current flag of Marieland is the first flag of West Antarctica. The emblem is the former small coat of arms of West Antarctica.
