The Noble Municipal Republic of Arkonia is a self-declared state, more commonly known as a micronation with land claims located in the United States. The NMR, as it is commonly referred to as, was formed on 3 January 2020, after the fall of the Kingdom of Arkonia and the extraordinary short-lived rump nation of the Second Directed Republic. The NMR is the ninth and eleventh iteration of the Arkonian nations, the latest nation in the Arkonian national lineage going all the way back to the Federal Kingdom of Arkonia.

The NMR acts as both a local government and a national government. This system, known as the Local-National Theory, was created for specific use in micronations. Executive and Judicial power is vested in the Grand Elector, the head of state. The Grand Municipal Council is the legislative branch of the nation. There is no military in the GMR, only a police force, the Municipal Police Service. it was disestablished later in January but was reestablished on 30 March.

Etymology

Like all the other Arkonian nations, Arkonia comes from the U.S. State it has its primary land claims in.

History

Government

The Government of Arkonia consists of two parts: the Electorate and the Grand Municipal Council, often called the GMC. The Electorate forms the executive branch of the nation, and the GMC forms the legislative.

The Electorate

The Municipal Electorate is a body that elects the Grand Elector. The membership is limited to current and former members of the Grand Municipal Council. It was chartered on 6 April 2020.

Police

Due to Arkonia's position as both a local and a national government, it must provide the services of both types of governments. In the case of the police, it has erred on the side of locality. The Municipal Police Service is both the police and the quote-unquote "military" of the nation. The MPS, as it is sometimes abbreviated, is led by the Marshal of the State who commands all police forces inside the jurisdiction of Arkonia.

Administrative divisions

Culture

The Noble Municipal Republic culture is a blend of old-style noble traditions and the local flair of the nation.

Calendar

The Westphalian Calendar is a calendar with its epoch at the signing of the Treaty of Westphalia, in 1648. Many sources cite this as the beginning of the modern-day nation-state, and thus it was chosen as the beginning of the calendar. It is used in conjunction with the Gregorian calendar used by the wider world, and both will be on government documents once the Westphalian Calendar reaches a stage where it can be implemented.
