History

Inception

King Justinian was first introduced to Micronatonalosm in the sixth grade after watching a clip from the anime Hetalia: Axis Powers, featuring a personified Principality of Sealand, he showed a moderate amount of interest and amusement, but nothing more. He would only be inspired to found his own micronation years later, after watching a video article by Vice News entitled The People Who Rule the World's Smallest Countries, later, King Justinian, then known simply as Justin, discovered MicroWiki. Inspired by the creativity of the various intermicronatonal leaders he had heard about, Justinian decided that he would try starting his own micronation. The micronations Justinian planned on creating would eventually be the precursors to Borgsland. Much of Borgsland's early development where attempts to design national symbols. towards the end of 2018, Justinian began drafting actual constitutions, and as a citezen of the United States, began taking, and reportedly enjoying, a civics class.

Provisional Government

on January 24th 2019, Borgsland officially declard its statehood via a declaration of indepence formally signed by Justin, he gave one copy to his father, and sent the other to his local congressmen, Glenn Grothman, via e-mail. Grothman has yet to reply to the e-mail. The next day he ratified the constitution, and made his first royal decree as monarch.

on January 28th, Justinian made a speech that he would post on You Tube introducing Borgsland and announcing the launch of its official website. In the speech, King Justinian addressed Borgsland's goals and intentions for the future, namely, to amass enough citizens to ratify a permanent constitution, establish a military, hold a democratic election for its Royal Diet, and, hold King Justinian's formal coronation. The next day, after opening its official Discord server, Borgsland was invited to join the Micronation security league by Taman Ria, and the World Micronatonal Committee.
