Nerland, also known as the Talamhcliste Imperiacht in Gaelic is a micronation in northern New Jersey, mainly located along the Raritan River. The nation is very compact and does not wish to overextend it's borders unless it is necessary. It holds knowledge and research as some of its founding values and is nation of origin for the Logikist ideology. This school of thought stems from the original goal for Nerland as a homeland for all oppressed nerds around the world, giving the nation its name.
Before Nerland, Supreme Leader Ishaan was the boss of his own mafia known as the Toppat Clan. Today this group is recognized as the first pre-Nerlander entity. The clan would break up in early 2015 when many lost faith in its power. In later 2015, Ishaan and the Council of Nerds declared the "Republic of Nerdlandia", an oligarchical republic based on pure Logikism. This name was deemed too long and changed to Nerland. The republic was unable to get anything done and Chancellor Sanders was not the right one to govern. This led to the Council to choose Ishaan to rule once more. He quickly abandoned the failed republic and installed a new dictatorship. This proved successful and allowed the nation to easily be governed with only having to ask one guy when making decisions. Field Marshal Liam, who was accused of being a Nazi (but really wasn't) joined the ranks of the government with Ishaan & Liam creating many battle plans. Marshal Liam was instrumental to the creation of the original government. After his departure to the U.S. State of Georgia where he formed a new territory and continues to expand the influence of Nerland throughout new areas, the nation known as Astovia was created. Many citizens of Nerland wished to see Astovia wiped off the map like Former Duke Lynch of Lyslia in the Warmonger Crisis of 2017. This popular action of war was prevented due to Ishaan's friendship with Emperor William and desire to keep peace. During the Astovian Cilvil War of 2018, King William of New York awarded the islands of Saint Pierre et Miquelon and Prince Edward Island. After the war, the treaty of Somerset was signed and Talamcliste seized the half of Connecticut west of the Connecticut river. Today, the nation of Talamhcliste is very prosperous compared to the rough republic of the early days and Supreme Leader Ishaan wishes to form diplomatic ties with other micronations.
