Mangdublah is a micronation that was founded on 4th September 2011. It was ruled through the decree of the Duke until July 2017. It is now ruled through an elected parliament and a President.

It is pronouced: Mang (as in Mango) Dub (as in dubstep) lah (as in lamb).


Etymology

The official name of Mangdublah is the Republic Of Mangdublah. The etymology of the word "Mangdublah" was originally (M)agnificent (A)nd (N)ew (G)rand (D)uchy (U)niting (B)ravery, (L)oyalty (A)nd (H)appiness. This was prior to the removal of the Grand Duke as the Head of State. A referendum was held regarding changing the name to Manrublah (Magnificant and New Republic uniting Bravery Loyalty and Happiness) but this Referendum lost 67% to 33% with a low turnout of only 64% of voters.

History

Mangdublah was founded on 4th September 2011. One day, when the future Grand Duke visited the future Chancellor's house (they are cousins) the future Chancellor showed the Grand Duke the world of micronations in the form of one of the most famous micronations of all, Sealand. The Grand Duke set up some start up details like employing an artist for the flag, looking for territorial claims etc. A few weeks later, on a second visit to his cousin, the Grand Duke Sean O'Ruiarc appointed his cousin Jenna O'Rourke as the first Chancellor of Mangdublah and thus Mangdublah was born.

Triggered by the celebrations of Grand Duke Day on the 24th July 2017, a coup occurred. Prior to the coup, the Right wing Libertarian Party dominated Mangdublan politics. The coup was started by the Mangdublan Socialist Party as an angry reaction to the continued presence of an unelected head of state. The Grand Duke Loyalist Committee (GDLC) was set up to protect the Grand Duke by loyalist Mangdublans, however they ultimately lost the civil war. As a response, the Socialist Party immidietely exiled the Grand Duke, banned the GDLC and held elections. The Socialist Party were widely expected to win the election, but due to their totalitarian approach following the coup, they sufferred heavily to a relatively moderate left electorate. As a result the Socialist Party won the fourth most seats, but remained in power as the Second largest party in a Three way left leaning coalition between the Egalitarian Party of Mangdublah, the Socialist Party, and the Green Party.

Political System

There was an inheritance to becoming the Grand Duke as there is to the English Crown. The Chancellor and Vice-Chancellor are re-voted each year. The secretaries are re-voted every nine months. Prior to the 2017 coup, the Grand Duke was the Constitutional head of state but held little practical power, following the coup, a Republic was created, with the President acting as the Head of State, and the Chancellor acting as the head of government. The President takes an active role in government but less important than the Chancellor. All bills must be signed off by the President who is re-voted every five years and can serve a maximum of three terms. 

Prior to the coup, the Right wing Libertarian Party dominated Mangdublan politics. The coup was started by the Mangdublan Socialist Party as an angry reaction to the continued presence of an unelected head of state.

Land Claims

Ruins

Ruins of Splendid China

Splendid China

This was Mangdublah's main land claim, declared April 20 2012-late 2013). It was a huge 300+ acre abandoned theme park near Florida named Splendid China. It was popular in the 90's but slowly deteriorated under social pressure and was eventually abandoned. The site was visited infrequently by only a handful of urban explorers each year. This claim was withdrawn following the demolition of Splendid China in 2013.

Knock John Sea Fort

Mangdublah's current primary land claim is Knock John sea fort. It is a sea fort built in the same series as the famous HM Rough Sands (Home to Sealand). There were four stations built: Rough Sands is home to Sealand, Tongue Sands was destroyed in a storm, Sunk Head was demolished by Royal Engineers and Knock John is home to Mangdublah.
