The Kingdom of Cärrum (Cah-rum) is a 5th world micronation located in England and Germany. Abiding by the laws of the Montevideo Convention Cärrum is not recognized by either nation its claims are in. Cärrum is a constituent state of the Saxon Empire and has good relations with the Great Republic of Sierra and the Empire of New Europe.
The Kingdom of Cärrum has its roots in a West Saxon settlement that existed prior to 1066, attested as the 'place of a naval engagement'. King Sebastian I, upon entering into the Saxon Empire in 2012, inherited the legacy of a royal lineage beginning with King Cerdic. After periods of Kings and Queens came the English Civil War, where the Monarchs were finally stood up to by the English Parliament. A pivotal battle was fought near Cärrum, leaving the nearby castle distoryed and the Royalist defenders on their knees. Further on came the Great War, a conflict which was meant to end all conflicts. Both of Cärrum's territories saw the horros of the war and both sides boots crossed each territory. The same happend again with the Second World War, as before both lands saw the presence of war as German, English, Russian, American and other nations clashed in the conflict. Then finally peace came to Cärrum's land but not for long as the split of Germany ripped the once strong nation to pieces and the Democratic Western English Cärrum territory got split from its Communist East German counterpart, but what begins well will end well as the nation were finally reunited and formed the Germany we know today! Cärrum now enjoys its relationship with its German Territory with the King visiting it every year!
Cärrum first started off as an unserious nation called the Kingdom of Le Town. King Sebastian wanted more stability and seriousness for his nation and went on to create the Reich of Forgatta, this made the nation just that and the Reich prospered. But as time went on the King wanted somewhere his nation would be safe and equal. He went to the Saxon Empire and created the Kingdom of Cärrum.
Cärrum's military force is called the Kommissmacht. The Kommissmacht imports Bundeswehr equipment from Germany. The Kommissmacht is currently attempting to manufacture a Karabiner 98k (Kar98k) Mauser rifle replica, to fire small bolts. The Kommissmacht uses Flecktarn Camoflauge patern for it's main equipment. Also using heavy balistic bolt throwers for supporting fire the Kommissmacht has acess to high levels of technology to be dominant on the Battlefield. Cärrum also employs the use of heavy go-carts, using metal plating to make a tank like vehicle, as well as being able to mount a heavy balistic bolt thrower on the back, as to make the bolt thrower mobile.
Cärrum's Government is a Democratic Monarchy. The Government has Partys, and these Partys form their councils, with their authorative heads. These Councils give their views to the public and are then voted for. The elected councils then assist the King in his decisions. This is a new system devised by Cärrumian Government called the Cärrumist Democratic Council Monarchy system.
This list is of the Partys and their Councils:
|Cärrum Conservative Party||Liberal Conservatism|
|Cärrum Liberal Socialist Party||Socialism|
|Cärrum National Party||Nationalism|
Cärrum's economy is surprisingly high for Micronations. Using it's own currency, the Cärrumian Marks are stored in the Royal Bank of Cärrum's safe. Cärrum also prints it's own notes as seen in the picture, they are decorated with a picture of a renowned person that is either decorated, remembered, or taken part in the history of Cärrum. In the sample (that is enlarged) you see a picture of Wilhelm II of the German Reich. The note is customized with a number barcode, in binary, and the date it was made as seen on the note, for example, 30092012. The note also has a Royal Seel of the Bank added to it. The Binary and the Code is entered into a computer system, which registers the use and renders the note worthless. If attempted to be used again, it will come up on the system as used. Cärrum does not have the 'Change back system' as for everything is worth an exact ammount in Cärrumian marks i.e: A book would cost 3 CM where as in Pound Sterling it may cost £1.50, Cärrum avoids post decimal units, as to avoid confusion, and stop difficulties in the Computer system. Cärum's exchange rate to British Pound Sterlings is 1 CM to 50p (BPS).
