The United Kingdom of Creek & Lake, referred colloquially as UKCL, is a self-proclaimed sovereign state, commonly known as a micronation by outsiders. Located in the State of Texas in the United States of America it is completely landlocked within the city limits of the City of Houston. The United Kingdom of Creek & Lake is a unitary parliamentary constitutional semi-elective monarchy, with Christina I & II being the Sovereign (monarch). The capital and largest city of the nation is the City of Creek. The United Kingdom of Creek & Lake has English (UK and US) as its official language as well as Classical Latin being a scheduled language. The main administrative region is that of the City of Creek though six other counties make up the subdivision of the nation.

The United Kingdom of Creek & Lake was established on the 25 January 2019 as the Sovereign Kingdom of Clear Lake (known colloquially as SCL). The original nation soon annexed the territory of Lake on the 7 February and formed the Kingdom of Lake and later the territory of Creek, which later became the Kingdom of Creek. Both of these separate kingdoms remained in union with that of the Sovereign Kingdom of Clear Lake. However, the nation's name and constitutional structure was changed upon its merger with the Kingdom of Creek (colloquially known as KC) on the 25 January 2020 through the Act of Union. With the appropriate legislation passed, the Sovereign Kingdom of Clear Lake became the United Kingdom of Creek (colloquially known as UKC). The Kingdom of Lake (colloquially known as KL) merged with the United Kingdom of Creek through the Second Act of Union on the 15 November 2020, thereby becoming the present United Kingdom of Creek & Lake. The Second Act of Union however also united the singular crown of the United Kingdom of Creek & Lake to that of the Grand Republic of Cycoldia (commonly known as Cycoldia), thus one monarch today shares both crowns.

The United Kingdom of Creek and Lake are a full member state of the Cycoldian Imperium, and have been under the crown of Christina I & II since 2020.

History

The United Kingdom of Creek & Lake was established on the 25 January 2019 through the concerted efforts of several individuals by the name of the Sovereign Kingdom of Clear Lake. This original MicroNation was called the Best of British Club (BBC) as a celebration of British culture and flourished for its exposition of Anglo-Hibernian-Caledonian culture. The nation was evolved in the succeeding months and developed a unique blend of parliamentary and executive form of governance. The nation's head of government was established by the royal prerogative in the position of Prime Minister. The first prime minister - the Earl of Lake (later Marquess of Lake) - was appointed formally on the 25 January 2019. Several other governmental positions followed comprising of the Ministers of State & Realm and the Great Officers of State & Realm. The former comprising of officials in charge of the state, while the latter manage the Royal Household and chiefly ceremonial affairs.

The legislative body and supreme authority of laws under the doctrine of parliamentary sovereignty is that of Parliament. The first Parliament of the Sovereign Kingdom of Clear Lake was called into session comprising of the House of Commons and the House of Peers. The former includes by its constitutional establishment eminent individuals of the realm whom do not bear a peerage, while the latter includes only the Lords and Ladies Temporal (i.e. peers and peeresses). The House of Peers was formed by the ennoblement of several individuals on the 25 January 2019 and a writs of summons being sent to 15 commoners, whom became the first Barons and Baronesses. With the Peerage now formed, governmental responsibilities and positions were parceled out other individuals.
