The Holy Dallmark Empire (spanish: Sacro Imperio Dallmarco, german: Heilige Dallmarkich Reich, dallmarkian: Svientienniy Dallmarkskiy Impiyerio) is a micronational empire located in different nations around the world. It was founded on the 24th of June, 2011 by Emperor Felix I of Arboria after a successful unification of the Arborian-Oakland Commonwealth and the Empire of Dallmark. The Holy Dallmark Empire consists of different ethnicities as it is based in different areas of the world and is a mixed-race nation. The Emperor rules the country and is supported by the Imperial Parliament.
The Holy Dallmark Empire consisted of the three micronations, the Empire of Dallmark, the Empire of Arboria and the Kingdom of the Oakland (the latter two joined to form the Arborian-Oakland Commonwealth). When the three nations unified, they decided to resume their activity by the name of the Holy Dallmark Empire. The word "Dallmark" comes from the Dallmarkian word "dall" from "dalyekiy" (meaning far or distant) and the word "mark" which refers to a forest, a common trait of the Empire of Arboria (Arboria from arbres which in French means "trees") and the Kingdom of the Oakland (land of the Oaks, and oak is a tree).
Before the Unification Pact which unified the two empires in one, the Empire of Dallmark and the Arborian Empire were to separate states with nothing in common. During a coup on the 22nd of June, 2011, the Emperor of Dallmark, Louis IX, was forced to flee the country. The peoples of Dallmark wanted reforms and a new government, but one that will continue the monarchy. They weren't in favor of elective kings or monarchs, therefore they asked the Emperor of Arboria to merge the two empires (three countries see Arborian-Oakland Commonwealth) to form the Holy Dallmark Empire. The people and the Emperor drew their terms of agreement in the Imperial Senate of Arboria.
On the 24th of June, 2011, the Empire of Arboria, Kingdom of the Oakland and the Empire of Dallmark signed the Unification Pact which bonded the three micronations into one Holy Dallmark Empire. The assumed Head of State was meant to be the Prime Minister of the Empire of Dallmark as the Emperor of the Dallmark Empire fled due to opposing the unification of the three countries, but the people wanted to continue with a monarchy. As there was no Emperor in Dallmark and the Kingdom of the Oakland was ruled by the Emperor of Arboria, Felix I of Arboria was chosen to become the Holy Dallmarkian Emperor. The coronation of Emperor Felix I of Arboria to the Holy Dallmarkian Emperor, Felix I of the Empire of Dallmark took place at 11:00 AM GMT+1 on the 24th June, 2011, soon after the countries joined to form the Holy Dallmark Empire.
The Holy Dallmark Empire is a larger empire than the previous entities of Arboria, Oaksvale and Dallmark as it combines the total territorial areas of these micronations. The estimated territory that the Holy Dallmark Empire has claim on is approx. 74 km2 (much of the territory coming from the Empire of Dallmark before the Unification Treaty. The Holy Dallmark Empire holds claims of lands in Poland, Seychelles, Malta and Isla des Grandes Arancies (an island off the coast of Peru in South America). The capital of the Empire has moved from La Volta, Isla des Grandes Arancies to Birchmond, Arboria as it is the current residing place of the Holy Dallmarkian Emperor, Felix I of Arboria.
Most of the land is flat, consisting of a small mountain range, the Scolian Mountains. There is also a lake nearby covering 1 km2 of the total land area of the Holy Dallmark Empire. The climate is mostly humid with occasional sunshine and rainfall. The humidity is due to most of the land being covered up by trees and plant life.
Government & Politics
The Holy Dallmark Empire is ruled by the Holy Dallmarkian Emperor as well as a parliament, the Imperial Parliament of Dallmark. The Parliament makes decisions on how to govern the Empire but these decisions must be enforced by the Emperor in order to be carried out or accepted. The Empire is an Autocratic Empire as the Emperor always has the final say, yet the Parliament acts as a vox populi so the Emperor knows what the people wants and can therefore make changes to the Empire according to what he wants for the Holy Dallmark Empire and what the people want.
- H.I.R.H, Holy Dallmarkian Emperor, Felix I of Arboria:- the Head of the Empire and Emperor of the Holy Empire.
- H.I.R.H. Princess Natalie of Arboria:- the heir presumptive and Chairman of the Imperial Parliament of Dallmark.
There are also government representatives that take care of everyday business in the Empire, they consist of 34 Parliamentarians who are loyal to the people and therefore can set forth laws and decisions that the people want, which can then be approved by the Emperor.
Starting from the 25th of June, 2011, the Holy Emperor Felix I has started conducting a variety of reforms in the Empire. Read More.
The Emperor of the Holy Dallmark Empire (sometimes referred to as the Holy Emperor of the Holy Dallmark Empire) is a single entity who rules the Empire with autocratic power. The autocracy was formed after a failed coup d'état before the Unification. The Emperor, at that time, Marco V survived the rebellion with tremendous casualties in his 10th Imperial Hussar Regiment (a deployment of 10,000 that protects and only takes orders from the Emperor). When the coup was suppressed, he reformed the Empire so that it be ruled under an autocracy with the Emperor/Empress possessing limitless powers.
The Electorate is an organization similar to the Reichstag in the German Empire and the Duma in the Russian Empire. It is a political organization that takes care of reviewing the demands of the Peoples and then passing on guidelines to the Emperor on what to do. Although the Electorate has no real power, it can decide on what matters will pass on to the Emperor by simply not mentioning the ones they find unsuitable.
The Sentio Exequo has been approved in the Holy Dallmark Empire, an invention of the Holy Dallmarkian Emperor, Felix I of Arboria.
The Holy Dallmark Empire has adopted the English judicial system and introduced certain variants to it. The judicial system consists of: the Holy Court, the Imperial Senate, the Supreme Court and the Imperial Court. Metaphorically, these "organs" work to form the "organism", the organs being the elements of the judicial system and the organism being the country. The Imperial Court is the highest, along with the Supreme Court, judicial entity under the headship of the Emperor. The Emperor can overrule any court decision, even by the Supreme Court. The two courts, however, only take care of major decisions or issues, all minor cases such as police cases or issues concerning the population are taken care of by the Holy Court. The Imperial Senate is a governmental organization that decides on actions that will be taken within the country. If there are any issues, the senate, in a democratic manner, votes on them and can therefore be called as a sort of judicial element.
The administrative districts of the Holy Dallmark Empire are governed by the Imperial Senate and Council of the Holy Dallmark Empire and it's sub-divisions. The Senate takes care of all governmental structures and organizations in each district such as the Police Department, Hospitals, Power suppliants, etc. Each district of the Empire has his representative in the Council who gives guidelines to a specific member of the Senate that is assigned to deal with his interests. Due to the fact that the Empire is under autocratic rule, the Emperor is present at the meetings of the Imperial Senate and can therefore overrule any decision made by the Senate that is asked for by the Council. This makes the Council more of a guideline organization for the Emperor.
Kroenjes are small organizations of peasants or workers. Each local community, ex. a town, has its own Kroenaj two which it appoints twelve members. These members discuss what can be improved in the local area and other issues that will make for the welfare of the community. These small organizations, however, have very small if not negligible impact on the country and their wishes are very rarely granted. This does, however, mean that the people have a say in what happens and gives them a taste of politics. The greatest success of these organizations was changing the rate of crops a peasant can keep for himself than sell on the market from 10% to 20%.
