A province of the Principality of Optima


Prima is the capital province of Optima. It is an enclave of Oaklands Park, Australia. It was the first province to be proclaimed, and is currently the most populous province.

Territory

Prima consists of a property in suburban Adelaide.

Features

  • Prima House, located in the centre of the province, includes Café Prima, the palace of the Prince, and offices of the Ministry of Defence and Security. The place where Optima was founded, in the north wing of the building, is now a bathroom due to renovations.
  • Brickshed, southwest of Prima House, is the former palace of the Prince, which he lived in while renovations were being performed on Prima House. It was known as Parliament Shed and was the meeting place of the Optiman Senate until it was moved online.
  • The Ministry of Defence Armoury is a shed directly east of Brickshed. Weapons are designed, built, and stored for the Optiman Defence Force there.
  • The Prima Botanic Gardens occupies the north-east part of Prima. A section of the Australian border fence is part of the gardens. A fort was built in a tree there but was demolished due to maintenance, weatherproofing, and zoning issues. A large portion of the central grassed area is being re-landscaped as of mid-May 2011.
  • Norton Park is a grassed area west of Prima House. It was the site of several undocumented judicial hearings during Optima's early days. It is named after Emperor Norton I of America.
  • The Ministry of Defence and Security maintains some weapons testing and training grounds adjacent to Norton Park.
  • Prima Farm is a small vegetable patch that is notable for its spinach and basil reserves.
