The Empire of Nedlando-Khorașan (Nedlandic Cyrillic: Емпај'р ов Недландо-Хорашан), is a secessionist, centralized and non-federal empire, and a constitutional monarchy. It is located primarily in the Washington, D.C. area of the United States, with territory in twenty-two other macronations. The country is divided into 12 vəlāyats. The current Emperor is Ali Haydar I, and the Grand Vizier is Ned Gunderson.
Nedlando-Khorașan currently controls territory in the United States, but also in the United Kingdom, Bangladesh, the Czech Republic, Ghana, Cameroon, the Netherlands, Poland, Algeria, Romania, France, Albania, Slovakia,Azerbaijan, Pakistan, Greece, Spain, Italy, Serbia, Kazakhstan, and Switzerland. As of August 16, 2017, the population was 252. As of February 2017, 45.8 percent of the population was unemployed, but this has changed to an estimated record low of 15% by June, and was reduced to 4% by July. Nedlando-Khorașan also has borders with the micronations of Sandus, Paravia, Mercia, Austenasia, Mahuset, Hortania, Glastieve, Lundenwic and Coria. According to the 1933 Montevideo Convention, Nedlando-Khorașan is recognized as a sovereign state.
On May 24, Gunderson founded an alliance which was called the MNTO (Micronational Treaty Organization), an organization dedicated to protecting its members.
On May 27, due to reasons concerning MNTO, Duke Jeffrey Bellino withdrew the Lowcountry from the MNTO and withdrew recognition from Nedland.[clarification needed]
The MNTO held an election the same day for organization president. Ned Gunderson won with three votes. His opponent, Liam Raymond of Wolfpond, was appointed to various positions of power, including the leading adviser to the president.
On May 31, it dissolved for various reasons.
The Pannonian War started when Liberland laid claim land claimed by South Maudlandia, and their president, Matthew Phillips, issued a warning to them. When Liberland ignored the warning and occupied the island of Siga, South Maudlandia declared war on Liberland.
On June 6, 2015, President Gunderson issued a formal declaration of war against Free Republic of Liberland, bringing Nedland into the Pannonian War on the side of President Matthew Phillips of South Maudlandia. Nedland already viewed Liberland negatively, as Liberland had previously ignored a Nedlandic request for a treaty of mutual recognition.
When the Kid United Republic, a key player on South Maudlandia’s side[clarification needed], cued them in on it[clarification needed], they joined South Maudlandia in the effort to defeat Liberland before the Serbian or Croatian police would potentially intervene.
On June 7, Nedland withdrew its declaration of war, with President Gunderson citing no advantageous outcome for any belligerent but South Maudlandia, and persuasion from Jackson Cole and Richard I of Mercia.
On 4 July, Nedland adopted national reforms recommended by the International of Left-wing Parties: The government dissolved the Lunar Territory, made English the only national official language , and changed the national flag, among other minor reforms.
On 26 July 2015, Nedland was admitted into the Nollandish Confederacy, a commonwealth/union of nations united in trade, diplomacy and such. Nedland joined mainly due to the fact that their friend-nations were members.
Nedland ceased membership in the Nollandish Confederacy after it was absorbed into the Empire of Paravia on 13 August 2015.
Coup and Joining Paravia
In a Facebook group message, President Gunderson expressed his plans to "leave the micronational community" after Mathias L. Magnussen of Munkkia leaked a screenshot of a private message showing that Gunderson had plotted to overthrow Joseph Kennedy[clarification needed]. Following this, Gunderson appointed Eren Lewis as head of the military and awarded Lord Grant Hawkins an autonomous republic to administer. Lewis held a coup against the Nedlandic government, installing Lord Hawkins as President of Nedland.
Gunderson sent a message to Hawkin's Facebook profile requesting he step down as president. Hawkins decided not to step down, and ruled Nedland for 4 days until he disbanded the landless government on 17 August 2015. Jackson/Horatio Eden, a citizen of the Universal Triumvirate, declared himself Ceremonial President of the Democratic Socialist Federation of Nedlandic Republics the same day, but without any remaining territorial claims, the title bore no authority.
Paravia stepped in to administer Nedland's territory on Ned Gunderson's request, becoming the Autonomous Region of Nedland on August 14, 2015.
During a brief confusion, the Abeldane Empire and Paravia split Nedland two ways - Abelden getting South Nedland (aka Abeldane Nedland) and Paravia getting the northern territories. Gunderson discovered the deal via his email and objected, which sparked some international tensions. The original unwritten deal allowed Abelden to annex the Cameroonian Territory and only annex the rest of Nedland if a coup overthrew the Paravian government. Abeldane Nedland was eventually transferred to Paravia in accordance with the deal, leaving Abelden with the land formerly part of the Nedlandic Cameroonian Territory.
On 28 November 2015, the Autonomous Region of Nedland was officially disbanded.
State of Nedland
On 5 May 2016 Nedland was refounded as an independent state, officially called the Republic of Nedland. The government sought diplomatic relations with former allies of Nedland.[who?][clarification needed]
On 12 May 2016, Emperor Patrick I of Paravia became head of state. Nedland renamed itself as the State of Nedland, in accordance with having a monarch as head of state.
The State of Nedland hosted one autonomous area, Hiddleston and Alonia, which was formed from the remains of Quetico Street. It hosted the Quetico Microinternational Stock Exchange (QMSE) from 9 to 14 June 2016, before it seceded under leader Henry Twain.
Second Paravian Era
Nedland declared independence from Paravia as the "Khanate of Nedland" on September 23, 2016.
Nedland seceded from the empire almost a month and a half from its annexation date, on November 14. They did so illegally, disregarding Paravian laws on formal secession. At first, attempts to make Gunderson secede formally were futile, and because of this, the Empire still recognized Nedland as part of Paravia. After this, several half-hearted attempts at referendums to leave were rejected by the government.
After much controversy, Gunderson agreed to stop his revolt and petition the government to secede with Nedland. The vote to leave (8-1) was almost unanimous. It is said by some that Gunderson's reputation was permanently damaged by this incident.
At the same time, another illegal secession committed by Gunderson in Abeldane Nedland received similar criticism. Technically, the dispute has not been solved yet because Gunderson never held an official referendum. However, after revoking Gunderson's citizenship and naming him a persona non grata in Abeldane lands, the government finally decided to unclaim Abeldane Nedland, unanimously.
The Duchy of Romitria in Karnia-Ruthenia seceded legally one day after those pieces of Nedland in Paravia and Abelden, by informing the Emperor and allowing the Imperial Chamber to hold a formal vote on the secession of Romitria. The vote concluded in support of Romit secession, and Romitria was allowed to secede.
After Nedland's secession, the government reformed into a khanate, and Gunderson was crowned the Second Genghis Khan. However, in February, Gunderson started a campaign to make Nedland serious again, banning all comical activity, as well as memes, from being used in politics. He disbanded the Ovaltine and Neutral parties because of this.
The Qoroltay is a parliamentary-like body of all-citizens, but most of them are primarily citizens of other micronations. There are plans to have up to 40 seats in the Qoroltay, but it will still hold sessions and discussions even if all seats are not full. Any citizen has the right to found a party, and currently there are seven political parties with seats in the Qoroltay, as listed below.
