Verd'land (Verd'landian: Vẽrdɩlandiɩa; Czech: Zelenozemsko) is a micronational and cultural organisation whose targets are a reconstruction, preservation and development of the previously fictional Verd'landian nation, popularization of it in mass culture, formation of micronational tourism and hosting of events relative to national culture.

As a micronation, Verd'land succeeds the Vladislavia.

Name

Official name of the country is "Verd'land" with no additional prefixes. In unofficial sphere the word "malgartship" can be added as long as it is factual national form of government. In this case this country can be named:

  • Malgartship of Verd'land (Verd'landian:Malgartuar dẽ Vẽrdɩlandiɩa; Czech: Málgartství Zelenozemsko)
  • Verd'landian Malgartship (Verd'landian:Vẽrdɩlandiɩ Malgartuar; Czech: Zelenozemské málgartství)

History

Previously, Verd'land ("Vẽrdɩlandiɩa") has been a fictional land created by Vladislav Chokin in 2011 year (and actual name appeared in 2015). He planned to save and develop it for writing of own adventure literature presenting this fictional world as ideal one, "the most beautiful and whose inhabitants are the most decent on the planet Earth". Years later his desire and abilities of writing were slowly deteriorating, and since 2011 no one book was finished. Nevertheless, fictional Verd'land was developing and changing Vladislav's mindset. By Chokin's own words, he began to feel like "he hadn't created Verd'land, but Verd'land created him".

Vladislavia

In the 1st October he established a micronation having his own name, Vladislavia, which was was unsuccesful. Virtual status was unsatisfactory even for its own micronational rating system. Actual place to establish Republic were unknown. Principles of Verd'landian mononationalism followed in migrational policy were a problem for potential citizens. Finally, this country was highly disgraced in the War of Senses, a private conflict between Chokin and members of Russian micronational community.

In the beginning of 2018 death of micronation became evident. On 9th February Vladislav had issued the last document which merged Vladislavia with his another newly created micronation, United States of Akkerman. All period of existence it was virtual, population wasn't exceed number 1.

Verd'land

Later, Vladislav had visited Czech Republic at first time, and this trip returned his almost dead wish to live in this country. He discovered easy way to emigrate, and started to consider relocation as accomplished fact. Simultaneously he began to project new Verd'landian micronation which will not repeat old mistakes. As long as fictional Verd'land probably won't be known and actively developed in future, he adopted original name to micronation (it was morally banned before). A first official name of new state was the "Czech-Verd'landian Federal Republic" (Verd'landian: Čehovẽrdɩlandiɩ Glofimarutiɩ Respublika; Czech: Česko-Zelenozemská Federativní Republika). But due to different and almost indescribable government form it was officially cut to shortened name, Verd'land.

Together with name, political structure of country has changed. CVFR used to be federal republic with two leaders who separately lead Verd'landian and Czech parts of united federation. But Chokin found this order dangerous for unity and illogical in nature (especially taking in account Czech ethnic entity in officially existing Czech state), so he removed federal divisions of 2nd level making local analogues of cities the main federal entities (as it factually was in Vladislavia).

Geography

Nowadays it is hard to talk about geography because state is not existing physically. However it is known that Verd'land is Czech micronation which located in Prague, probably in uptown's districts.

Administrative divisions

As in Vladislavia, cities and towns are absent – the main entity of country is "selitur" (translates as "community" or "commune"). Selitur should be located in legally controlled area, predominantly in private houses. Several seliturs create a "lokalitet", but this entity can be considered as unofficial. In Prague's area lokalitets names are the same with official names of districts they are located into.

Government and politics

Verd'landian political system was undeveloped and quite original, due to this exact definition of government form was complicated. Now it's considered as "malgartship".

Head of state is so called "Malgart". This office was imported from fictional Verd'land, and it can be described as president with elements of monarch – the leader of country who came to power by any possible way (the main one is democratic elections), has wide (but not unlimited) powers and noble king-styled status.

Malgart is also a head of government, so called "Sfatul" consisting of state ministers. There are no another legislation structures in Verd'land.

Law

The main law of Verd'land is "Almaut", which can be also called a Constitution.

Armed forces

Country's safety is served by a National Guard which also has some branches like Naval Fleet and Border Guard.

Foreign relations

As undeclared microstate, Verd'land hasn't relations with another micronations, cultural organisations or countries.

Economy

National currency of Verd'land is Euro.

At this moment country hasn't sources of profit.

Demographics

Languages

Verd'landian and Czech langauges are official in the microstate. Verd'landian government also promotes learning of English as international language.

Religion

As Vladislavia, Verd'land sets Verdism as state religion, but doesn't ban another ones.

Accordingly to religious statistics of Czech Republic, the national Verd'landian cult stays together with Atheism, Agnosticism and Catholicism. By the way the last one has problematic status as long as Verd'landians (who traditionally can't be followers of any Abrahamic religion) have cold relation to it.

Verd'landian culture

Representation of Verd'landian culture is one of the main purposes of this micronation. Besides this, a target is to raise it from the fictional status. Today it is on the stage of incipience.

Verd'landian culture is predominantly based on two sociotypes of its fictional namesake: Northern Verd'landian and Estuarian. The first one described as debonair and care-free farmer, the second one is creative person, however with complicated, lustful, sometimes agressive temper. Verd'landians and Estuarians have some differences in culture and two language dialects. Both types are shown as national animals of Verd'land – fox and fennec accordingly.

Music

Regular Verd'landian music copies Celtic and Medieval styles. Due to this, state ideology "allows" to consider all tracks in these styles as national music of Verd'land.

Estuarian music is East-styled and mostly similar to Albanian. Verd'land even has the copies of Albanian and Turkish string instruments, the "kimala" (çifteli) and "kirmila" (bağlama) accordingly.

State plans to establish a national folk band.

Cuisine

Cuisine of Verd'land has a plenty of saturated soups and stews. Confections are also very common, like, for example, "siltarɩat" and "felɩvarɩat". National drink is "niviɩa", a tincture made of wild berries.
