It is pronouced: Mang (as in Mango) Dub (as in dubstep) lah (as in lamb).
The official name of Mangdublah is the Grand Duchy Of Mangdublah. The etymology of the word "Mangdublah" is (M)agnificent (A)nd (N)ew (G)rand (D)uchy (U)niting (B)ravery, (L)oyalty (A)nd (H)appiness.
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.

Mangdublah's main land claim, declared April 20 2012, is 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 is visited infrequently by only a handful of urban explorers each year.

Mangdublah's secondary 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
Mangdublah's tertiary land claim, claimed circa August 2012 was a small island off the coast of Miami. It is 1 1/2 inches above sea level when the tide is out, and so is only an island for a couple of hours a day.
