The Purposes and The Origins of The Sohnland
The Foundation day of The Sohnland (April 20 2005) may not actually be the day The Sohnland was officially founded on as it was never documented or ever written down. However, April 20 2005 was chosen to be the day of foundation as this date is chosen based on the earliest time The Sohnland could have been created. The Sohnland could have been created anywhere between April and September of 2005. The Sohnland did not get an official flag until 2010
The original purpose of The Sohnland was to act as a domain for its leader and to represent and create a space for his identity, ideas, culture, beliefs and tradition. The leader of The Sohnland still willingly continues his nation today as he identitifies less with England and the UK and more with The Sohnland itself as a national and cultural identity. This is most likely a consequence of introverted isolation after the year 2012, causing gradual changes in its founder/leader from how he communicates, interprets the world around him, his sense of morality even possibly down to the neurological level.
The Sohnland is not like most micronations because it was founded because of cultural differences and rather than the typical way a micronation is created, that being through the inspiration of another more well-known micronation or just for fun.
