The name "Danesland" originated out of a conversation about food that eventally went out of context into the declaritive theory of statehood and eventually micronationalism. The name Danesland was conceved through that conversation and has been in place since the founding of Danesland, although name change has been brought up numorous times, it has never been seriously considered.
The Kingdom of Jamesland was founded in late 2006 by James Thomson. The Kingdom was unaware of micronationalism and the Montevideo Convention, and just considered itself a small nation. The nation developed a wall of sticks, separating the United States and Jamesland, the remains can still be seen today, spreading out to about two feet.
Change of Government
The Government officially changed from a Social Democracy to a Socialist Republic. On January 26, 2011 when the People's Parliament had an emergency vote to switch to a Single Party Socialist Republic that ran under the Cuban System.
