New London, or the Department of New London as it is officially known, is a department in the northern region of the Free City-State of Edenopolis. Named for the capital city of the United Kingdom, the City of London, New London is the second largest department in Edenopolis, following New Kronsborg.

The northern-most edge of the Imperial Halls of Justice mark the farthest-most northern boundaries of the department - and, consequently, the farthest-most northern boundaries of the nation itself - where the northern land border between the United Kingdom and Edenopolis lies.

New London borders the Central Estates to the south, and England in all other directions.

There is presently no devolution to the departments of Edenopolis due to low population numbers; as such, the governance of the state is operated on a day-to-day basis by the monarch directly.

The department is key to the nation insofar as it is the only department containing a judicial building of any kind; in this instance, specifically, the Imperial Halls of Justice.

Etymology

The name of the department comes from the name of the British capital city of London, combined with the adjective "new".

History

Historical affiliations

Establishment

The territory itself was claimed as part of Edenopolis following the passage of the first Royal Edict on the 5th of November, 2016, claiming all the territory that stretched from the "Imperial Halls of Justice in the north" to the "First River in the south".[1]

However, the city would not be departmentalized until after the passage of the twentieth Royal Edict on the 9th of November, 2016, which formally set out the boundaries of the departments and the manner by which they would be governed. Drafted and passed into law by King Horatio Eden, it named the territory that stretched from "the northern-most edge of our City to the junction south of the Imperial Halls of Justice [...] New London".[2] It also set out provisions for a Royal Governor "when such population numbers are available so as to allow for such delegation [of authority]".[3] As of the 9th of November, 2016, no Royal Governor has been appointed to the post.

Geography

Climate

Much like the surrounding United Kingdom, temperatures tend to sink much lower in winter months in particular while remaining reasonably cool in summer.

Topography

New London is mostly paved over, especially nearer to the Imperial Halls of Justice; there are very few prevailing natural features to be found as opposed to areas for cars and large buildings.

Governance

Royal Edict 2016-11-XX allows for a Royal Governor to work in "concord"[4] with the monarch of the City-State in administering to the day-to-day affairs of the department. However, the law also says that such will only take effect when the population numbers allow; as a result, the department is governed directly by the central government of the nation: the King.

Culture

Flag

The flag of New London

The flag of New London is based upon the flag of Greater London. However, the crown that usually appears in the top bar of the flag has been replaced by a monochromatic aerial image of the department's borders.
