The capital is Új Repülő and the largest city is New Leeds. New Eiffel has 3 official languages (English, Afrikaans, New Eiffellian), 3 national languages (Hungarian, Arabtemporarian, Zësøtix), and 3 recognised minority languages (LOLspeak, Flemish, Dutch).

New Eiffel was established as a republic on 31 December 2017, and was called New Finland. New Eiffel officially became a principality on 11 August 2018, and after a long political struggle and conflicts, New Eiffel was officially reunified on 30 August 2018. It's current constitution was implemented on 1 March 2019.

New Eiffel became a member of the Québécois Commonwealth on 9 March 2019, with Emily Gréz acting as Governor-General; representing New Eiffel. New Eiffel also founded the Organisation of Active Micronations (OAM), which currently has 43 full member states. New Eiffel became a member of the Grand Unified Micronational on 19 May 2019. New Eiffel is also a member of the League of Nations, Concordian Unional Organisation, Union Against Micronational War, United European Micronations and the Micronational Olympic Federation, and will take place in the 2020 or 2021 games.

New Eiffel has numerous territories under its control, including shared control over the United Beachwood Republic with the Somcowian Federation. New Eiffel has a population of 13 people, which excluding uninhabited territories, makes it one of the most densely populated micronations in the world.

New Eiffel is a big economic nation, and often ranks high on measurements of nation performance. New Eiffel has a 5/5 on the Economic Potential Index. New Eiffel makes nearly 60% of its GDP from therapy, housing, online sales (clothes, logo and symbol designing) and films.

All other territories have either no GDP or their GDP is kept hidden. It is not entirely known why the government keeps the GDP so secret, however it is suspected it’s to do with the fact that surrounding robberies in the United Kingdom next to mainland New Eiffel have been taking place. New Eiffel was ranked 10th on the Micronational Popularity Index with 4 votes.

History

South African Era

The old flag of New Eiffel: the flag of the Republic of New Finland

New Eiffel was founded as a country project on 31 December 2017, formally known as the Republic of New Finland located in South Africa.

There were formally nine residents living in the first claimed area of New Finland, although none of them were officially citizens. New Finland adopted its first national flag on the day it was founded. The meaning of flag is unknown, however Prince Zed I belives it was meant to symbolise unity, since it has multiple colours on the left corner of the flag and it was based upon the South African Flag, which represents unity.

The Republic of New Finland became slightly inactive after late February. Prince Zed I, who was President Zarel Smith at the time, decided they needed to give New Finland a boost if it was ever going to became a major micronation. He was backed up by many of his citizens at the time. This lead to the Early days area.

Early days

A New Finland passport, no longer in use

Sometime in early March New Finland became located in England. New Finland was described as a struggling micronation by many citizens, with one even calling it an already failed state.

The Early days is considered one of the most important times in New Eiffel history. New Finland adopted a new flag and coat of arms. New Finland also adopted many national symbols, such as a national animal, national anthem, and a national monument.

The first road the J25 was constructed, however at that time it didn't have a name. The first three cities were named, Smithton, Hardwork Village Outback and Smithington, which would later be renamed to Plitvice, Új Repülő and New Leeds respectively.

New Eiffel Civil War

New Finland became involved in a civil war when the Supreme General (Now known as the Minister of War) tried to overthrow the micronation.

The Supreme General announced that he had declared war on his own micronation to try to gain control over it. The Supreme General then attacked Zarel Smith around five minutes after he declared war. He attacked the President in his office. The President then quickly grabbed a wooden sword and defended himself. The Supreme General later gave up after being hit in the leg.

As a result, the Supreme General became the Minister of War and had most of his power stripped to make sure nothing like this would ever happen again. He was also suspended from HRANE for fifteen days. Tighter security was also put in place.

Kingdom of New Finland

The president made a deal with the Minister of War that if New Finland became a Kingdom, the Minister of War would have to keep peace. He accepted and New Finland became a kingdom, and the president was elected king.

This was a controversial time in New Eiffel’s history, since the King was accused of disobeying the law and using loopholes and false allegations to steal people’s property. The King willingly stepped down after heavy complaints from the population and the media.

Reunification

On 11 August 2018, the Kingdom of New Finland officially became a principality, and was renamed to the Principality of New Temporary. Prince Zed I called it a "re-founding" of the micronation, and installed a new government, which was stronger and better then the original. Prince Zed I and the government installed new laws, and made New Temporary’s online presence more well known.

New Temporary was later renamed to New Eiffel after the population voted for a new name.

The so-called reunification worked, and business and tourism started to blow up. New Eiffel also founded the Organisation of Active Micronations on 21 November 2018, which as of 31 May 2019 has 43 member states. New Eiffel also joined other various intermicronational organisations.

Government and politics

New Eiffel is called a ‘flawed democracy’, with Social Democracy being a popular ideology. Capitalism and Nationalism are also popular, with Communism gaining recent popularity. Anarcho-capitalism could also have a shot in New Eiffel. Authoritarian socialism, Anarchy, and Swampism are very disliked topics in New Eiffel. Social Justice and LGBTQ+ rights are also highly debated, however LGBT people are still accepted.

Autocracy in general is a neutral topic in New Eiffel, which is surprising since Swampism and Authoritarian socialism are very controversial.

Being a principality, the current prince is Prince Zed I, who serves as the head of state. Prince Zed I will either serve until his death or stepping down by resigning. According to him, all of his known living relatives are next in-line for the throne, weather they accept it or not. The person who is next in-line may choose to serve or not. The head of state may resign when ever he wishes, however they must give a 30-day warning first.

The current prime minister is Daleen Smith, who is also the Minister of Education and Minister of Foriegn Affairs. She was elected on 25 December 2018, after her political party the Orange Party won the 2018 New Eiffel Prime Minister Election.

J. Heystek A. Smith is the former Minister of War and general of HRANE. He is responsible for commanding attacks and declaring war on other micronations or countries. However the general still needs permission from the government and occasionally Prince Zed I.

Political parties

New Eiffel is a unitary parliamentary constitutional monarchy, with twenty-nine seats in parliament. There is one election every year starting on December 15 and ending on the 25 for a new prime minister. Each election ceremony takes place in a different country or micronation. New Eiffel has seventeen political parties, and every citizen is allowed to vote. Each citizen gets two votes. Every political party was required to get one seat in parliament, however after a large amount of political parties were created the law was abolished following the political party reform. Every citizen is required to vote at least once, with no required amount for downvoting.

There were two former parties, the Grand Libertarian Party and the Socialist Yellow Party. The Socialist Yellow Party got four votes in the 2018 New Eiffel Prime Minister Election, and was tied at third place with the New Eiffel Anti-Smoking Party.

The Socialist Yellow Party was dissolved on 24 December, one day before the end of the 2018 Prime Minister Election. In an interview, the leader of the Socialist Yellow Party stated “I dissolved the Socialist Yellow Party because I simply changed my political views. The Yellow Party will now be my main party.”

Following the dissolution of the Socialist Yellow Party, the Socialist Scandinavian Party gained all four of its seats after a parliament vote. This was decided since it was the only other socialist party.
