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.
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.
The provisional government of Borgsland is described in its constitution, describing it as an autocratic government managed by royal decrees made by its King that aims to reform into a semi-constitutional monarchy after it has gained enough citizens. During the Period of provisional government, citizens are supposed to form political parties to choose representatives among themselves that will later be elected to the Royal Diet, Borgsland's national assembly. King Justinian has yet to appoint various ministers of state to the soon to be established privy counsel.

King Justinian has made a few notable decrees, many of which either serve to elaborate on the Provisional Constitution, or establish certain policies. Arguably, Justinian's most notable decree's include his first, third, fifth, and seventh royal decrees, allowing all of his family members to become naturalized citizens, instituting the policy of lèse-majesté, banning all firearms from Borgsland's capital Emmanualsburg, and postponing the payment of taxes until Borgsland has accumulated enough citizens and assets.

King Justinian's Mother, maternal grandmother, and maternal great aunt, are avid painters, many of there works are coincided by borgslandics to be national treasures.
