Revalia (//), officially the Revalian Kingdom, is a sovereign state located in the Harju region of Estonia. The territory of Revalia consists of one island and pieces of mainland enclaved by Estonia, covering a territory of 0,36 km². Capital and largest city of Revalia is Trumpetburgh, which has a population of 19. Revalia was declared independent 19 September 2020. Revalia is an executive constitutional monarchy, ruled by King Sander II as the head of state. The official languages spoken are Estonian and English. Revalia claims to be the successor of the Estonian ancient county, Revalia (or Rävalia) which in Estonian is Revala (or Rävala).
Before the official independence, Sander Koff started Revalia as a successor to the Ancient County of Revalia, which existed 800 years ago. The Kingdom of Revalia claimed the whole Ancient County of Revalia, which is the modern-day Harju County in the Republic of Estonia. Sander Koff wasn't aware of micronationalism then, so Revalian Kingdom existed mostly on papers.
The Revalian Kingdom was established because of many purposes; Sander Koff had just found out about micronational community and an organisation called ÜSSA was looking for an activity. Then Sander Koff, who was himself a part of ÜSSA, offered the organisation to merge into the Revalian Kingdom. The ÜSSA Council accepted and the Revalian Kingdom was officially established on 19 September 2020 AD in Tallinn, Snelli Park, in which the manifest of the Revalian Kingdom was first declared. The kingdom declared itself independent from Estonia. The founding fathers of the kingdom were Paul Koff, Sander Koff, Johhannes Thor Urke, Endel Pällin, Karl Marius Lensment and Kaarel Luikmel, who were all ÜSSA Councilmembers. Today, ÜSSA serves as the Secret Services of the Revalian Kingdom.
After Revalia was declared independent, Sander Koff was elected the Prime Minister. He also served as the Head of State, in the title of regent. During Sander Koff's Regency, Revalia made big diplomatic developments; signed treaties with many prestigious nations. Proper government institutions were established. On the 14th of March, the Constitution is passed in the Parliament and goes into effect.
Sander II's Reign
On 27 April, Sander Koff declared himself the King Sander II of Revalia with the total support of Parliament, Cabinet and the Royal Privy Council.
On 27 April, when Sander Koff had just ascended the Throne, His Royal Highness, Prince Indrek, started a short rebellion, stating that Sander II's ascension was unlawful. Prince Indrek gathered a small unarmed force to take over the Royal Palace, but the Trumpetburgh garrison and the 1st Infantry Division, under the command of Colonel Minni Koff of Reemle, managed to defeat the prince's forces. Prince Indrek then apologised and Sander II accepted his apology. No court trial was ever held.

Revalian folklore is widely known around the kingdom. The most notable piece of folklore is perhaps about the Lake Ülemiste's Old Man. The legend says that the "Old Man of Lake Ülemiste" (Estonian: Ülemiste vanake) lives in the lake. When anyone meets him, he always asks: "Is Tallinn ready yet?". If the other person answers "Yes, the city is ready.", then the old man will send the lake waters out to cover the city of Tallinn. In this way, if anyone meets this old man, they should answer: "No, the city is not ready. There is a lot of work to do still." In this way the city can be saved.
