Northwood-Oregon (/ˈnɔɹ.θwʊd-ˈɔɹ.əˌgən/), officially the Kingdom of Northwood-Oregon, is a micronation located in Northwest Ohio, USA which was founded on 29 September 2020. The Kingdom has one hundred forty-one metropolitan citizens with seventy-six of those citizens residing directly in land claimed by the Kingdom. Those not residing around land claimed by the Kingdom are not able to become citizens, instead, these people can be granted honorary citizenship which only three people currently hold.
The claims of the Kingdom are comprised of various noncontiguous member states, baronies, and sovereign land. Currently, there are two states ruled directly by the Sovereigns and seven member states, six of which are duchies and one being a principality. A variety of baronies are also claimed, generally being a single house ruled by a baron or baroness, baronies can remain independent parts of the Kingdom or can become associated with a member state. Sovereign land is also claimed, a term used to denote any land claimed that isn't a member state nor a barony, the most notable land claimed under this doctrine is Turtle Island.
Turtle Island is an island in Lake Erie claimed by the Kingdom of Northwood-Oregon as Sovereign Land. It was originally claimed by the Kingdom on 11 October 2020 as part of the Three Day Expansion, but was later reaffirmed as a claim after the passage of the Canon Governing Document of the Kingdom of Northwood-Oregon formalized the doctrine of Sovereign Land. The claim was reaffirmed in the Sovereign Land Revisiting Bill which also relinquished the Kingdom's claim over Osme.
