Novus Hierosolymis (/noʊvʌs hiɛɻosɔˈlʊˀmˈɪz/), formally known as the Most Holy Kingdom of Novus Hierosolymis (Latin: Sanctissimae Regnum Novus Hierosolymis), is a sovereign state, commonly referred to as a micronation by external observers, established as the continuation of the medieval Kingdom of Jerusalem and the Holy Roman Empire. It is a semi-constitutional monarchy, ruled over by King Jayden I.

Established on 23 February 2021, the idea that became Novus Hierosolymis came to its founder, when he was fascinated with the Catholic Monarchs of Spain, the Holy Roman Empire and the Kingdom of Jerusalem.

It scores a 4 on Roscoe's Scale of Micronational Seriousness, a 4.4 on David's Micronational Potential Index, and a 3.4 on the Categoric-Gradial System of Classification.

Etymology

The name Novus Hierosolymis comes from the Latin for New Jerusalem. It was named after New Jerusalem since the inspiration of the micronation came from the Kingdom of Jerusalem, and seeing that this new micronation was made as a continuation of such, it was named after such. The motto then came from the name of the micronation, based on an excerpt from the Book of Revelation, where St. John of Patmos writes:

And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

— Revelation 21:2

History

Quattuor Period (Feb 2021 - Mid-March 2021)

In this period, only 4 citizens were part of Novus Hierosolymis. During this time, the first national coat of arms and current flag was made. It automatically joined the Progressive Association, due to the King being part already of such alliance.

Progressio Era (Mid-March 2021 - present)

In this era, from 4 citizens in the Quattuor Period, the Kingdom saw a 225% increase in the citizenry. During this time, the second and third national coat of arms was made. The first royal decrees were issued in this era, and peerages were made. The King, seeing the medals and honors given by other micronations, established the Most Noble Order of the Belt of Truth, similar to the Order of the Garter. The Kingdom also begun its walk on the road of professionalism, applying for membership in the illustrious and well-known Cupertino Alliance.

Government and politics

The Government of Novus Hierosolymis (also referred to as HM Government) is a parliamentary one, with a House of Commons as its unicameral legislature, and a Prime Minister. There is no parliament yet, but the King has begun an election cycle in the Kingdom, opening a candidacy application form for citizens to run for their local parliamentary constituency in the House of Commons.

Geography and climate

Currently, Novus Hierosolymis claims Monte Banuhus or Mount Banahaw, a mountain 109.01 km2 or 42.088996 mi2 big. Some Christian sects, mainly Rizalistas, people who believe that José Rizal, the de facto national hero of the Philippines, is the Filipino Christ, believe that Mount Banahaw is a holy and sacred place. This is mainly due to locals who have said to have heard a santong boses or holy voice, that set points of pilgrimage in the mountain's domain, and declared such mountain as the New Jerusalem, for it said that Jerusalem in Israel is not pure and clean anymore.
