Borkenfels (formerly known as Sprelbuerg) is a province of Ceticilia founded in 2011, it is the oldest province of Ceticilia preceding the nation of Ceticilia's birth by five years. It became part of Ceticilia as "Territory of Sprelbuerg" in 2016 and was admitted into Ceticilia later the same year.

It consists out of the following wards:
Neuheim, Nord-Borkenfels (until 2018-08-24 Nord-Neuheim), Hoogland (Hógland), Sonnberg (Zonbérg) and Alt-Borkenfels.

Independence

The Republic of Sprelbuerg existed from 2011–2016 and was founded by Aqua until it was made part of Ceticilia, originally as inuncorporated territory. Though Borkenfels was an open republic which had voting rights for every citizen, usually only people in the People's Party voted in presidential elections. The last presidential election was held in 2013. Nearing the end of the republic a new flag Sprelbuerg.png was adapted that ultimately replaced the old flag Sprelbuerg .png.
