The Sovereign Kingdom of Austreneland, also known as Austreneland, is a Constitutional Parliamentary Monarchy which was declared independent on March 8, 2010. It has territories on the border of France and Germany, as well as on the North American mainland.
The sovereign of Austreneland, currently King James, is the head of state. The sovereign controls the military and appoints the members of Parliament. The Constitution prevents the monarch from declaring war or annexing land without Parliament's consent.
The members of Parliament, called Ministers, are appointed by the sovereign. The Ministers of Parliament elect a prime minister from amongst themselves to preside over parliamentary proceedings. Parliament may pass any laws within constitutional limits, and may only amend the constitution when the sovereign allows the Ministers to convene in a Great Parliament.
The Pomegranate is a national symbol in Austreneland. It is depicted in many ways on the Royal Coat of arms. The other national fruits are the Lime and the Myrtle Leaved Orange
