Micronation


NobleLand is a Micronation that has dreams only as far as its leaders can imagine. currently, NobleLand is at a state of which it is not recognized. But, the leaders have already begun thinking of places to permanently establish our utopia. NobleLand is a very peaceful country. it will never make enemies, but chances are it will never make friends either, as it likes to only associate with itself. (however, if our peace is being threatened we will call a militia) NobleLand is a Semi-Presidential parliament. this means that we have an authority figure that also helps runs the country. we also have a prime minister to help make many choices. however, those are the two main people; we have an entire Cabinet full of people. These people come up with what should happen in the country. (The King and Prime Minister are apart of the cabinet when laws and decisions are to be made)

Departments


Positions

NobleLand has an interesting parliament. "The Cabinet" can expand when we find something that needs tending over, and therefore, we have an infinite amount of seats that need tending to. it’s a very interesting system. We have had people come up with several funny cabinet positions, such as "Mythical Creatures", "Cheese", and "Awesomeness". Interestingly enough, the people that come up with their own Cabinet positions have a more active roll in the nation.

Citizenship & Running for an office

To run for office you must be a citizen of NobleLand. To become a citizen, you will have to do 2 things, become a part of our nation on our SITE, and become a citizen on our facebook page. When you have done one, but not the other, you are classified as a “level 1” citizen, and may not be on the cabinet or councils. When you have become a member on the site and on facebook you will be a “level 2” citizen and will have full access to run for whatever you want. You apply for an office by going to the NobleLand facebook page and say “I CALL AN ELECTION FOR ________" and there will be an election. If there is someone running against you, then you will have a 2 day period to run a campaign. A Cabinet position must be held for a minimum of 2 weeks in order for at least a little work to get done.

Territories, Land, and Sectors

A territory of NobleLand depends on only a couple things; A flag in the establishment and a citizen willing to vouch that it is a territory of NobleLand. The Citizen that vouches for that territory has the ability to name that section of NobleLand (sector).

Armed forces

As it has been stated before, NobleLand is a Peaceful country, and doesn't want to start any fights. The only real reason NobleLand would be called to assemble as an army is if NobleLand was being threatened to be annexed. So, the army would mainly meet at protests, if the need arises.

The Big 5

In NobleLand, There are 5 main laws, a "Bill of Rights", and the faith in the citizens that they will obey the word and spirit of the law.

1. The cabinet will take a vote on any law that should be proposed.

2. There shall be no use of drugs, alcohol, or other mind warping substances on Nobleland property, prescription drugs are exceptions.

3. Each Noble has the right to worship his/her own deity.

4. Responsible and knowledgeable citizens are able to carry fire arms.

5. Nobleland is like a family, and should be treated like one. Be kind to your equal fellow noblemen.

Declaration of Independence

A declaration has not been issued the United Nations or the U.S.A. this is because the Cabinet hasn't had time nor the motivation. We are also worried that because the U.S.A has become so corrupt that they will see our Micronation as a threat and take us down. therefore, the debate of an official declaration is ongoing.

Constitution

Our form of government consists of a cabinet that is extend-able; meaning that more and more members can be added for certain situations. We have a king, that finds flaws in the country and has a prime minister to help him make a decision on how to enact a law to fix it. These 2 people are the ones that take the country the most serious and spend the most time perfecting it. We are known as a Semi-Presidential Parliament Any position is able to have an election (exception is king, king will always remain in office, as it comes through a bloodline).


all that is needed for an election is for a citizen to call for one. a minimum of 3 weeks is required however. This keeps it so that the government may still function but not be corrupted

Applying Cabinet members must also apply for appropriate positions Example: an unintelligent person would not be the head of Noble Intelligence This prevents the country to not be run into the ground by people who don’t know what their doing.


The government will enact laws quickly. If the cabinet refuses or is unable to respond, then the available cabinet members will enact a law within 12 hours of the problem.


The Five Big Ones

1. The cabinet will take a vote on any law that should be proposed.

2. There shall be no use of drugs, alcohol, or other mind warping substances on Nobleland property, prescription drugs are exceptions.

3. Each Noble has the right to worship his/her own deity.

4. Responsible and knowledgeable citizens are able to carry fire arms.

5. Nobleland is like a family, and should be treated like one. Be kind to your equal fellow noblemen.


We have an unusually large cabinet. Our cabinet currently has many available positions. And many more are to be added. If you would like to apply for a position that is not currently taken contact King Evan at kingevanthefirst@hotmail.com. If you feel it is time for an election please call for an election at

Holidays

NobleLand is a cool little country. but sometimes we get bored, and need a reason to party, so we have holidays. NobleLand is a secessionist state from the U.S.A., and therefore, both countries have similar holidays.


New Years day: is January 1. The celebration of this federal holiday begins the night before, when People gather to wish each other a happy and prosperous coming year. Many People make New Year's resolutions (a promise to do something better in the upcoming year)

Civil rights day: is a federal holiday celebrated on the third Monday in January. The Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. was an African-American clergyman who is recognized for his tireless efforts to win civil rights for all people through nonviolent means.

King’s day or Valentine’s Day: celebrated on February 14. The day was named after an early Christian martyr, and on Valentine's Day, presents like candy or flowers to the ones they love. The first mass-produced valentine cards were sold in the 1840s. the king was also born on this day, and therefore is also known as King’s day.

Easter: falls on a spring Sunday that varies from year to year. Easter is a Christian holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. For Christians, Easter is a day of religious services and the gathering of family. Many follow old traditions of coloring hard-boiled eggs and giving children baskets of candy.

NobleLand Day: on 4/21/2010 NobleLand was officially started. And on this day nobles celebrate by just plain partying when and where they can. This is the equivalent of the American 4th of July. However, you may celebrate Halloween, Christmas, and birthday (to Nobleland) on this day also.

Mother's Day: Celebrate mothers every second Sunday of May. Mom’s take a lot from us, and this is the day that we (are supposed to) make up for it.

Nobleland’s Arms Day: this day is the day to thank the armed forces of Nobleland. So pretty much thank every male, as we only have militia. BUT! Nonetheless, thank the guys that would fight if needed.

Father's Day: Celebrate fathers every third Sunday of June. Father's Day began in 1909 in Spokane, Washington, when a daughter requested a special day to honor her father, a Civil War veteran who raised his children after his wife died. The first presidential proclamation honoring fathers was issued in 1966 by President Lyndon Johnson.

IYFD (In Your Face Day): On this day nobles are asked to wear colors that represent Nobleland. As on the american independence day, this is typically seen as the day purely dedicated to America. But, we are not American, and we show it by wearing Nobleland!

Halloween: celebrated on October 31. On Halloween, children dress up in funny or scary costumes and go "trick or treating" by knocking on doors in their neighborhood. The neighbors are expected to respond by giving them small gifts of candy or money.


This also happens to be:



Cabinet day: if you are a cabinet member, you are asked to wear your Sunday’s best to show that you are a cabinet member. You may also wear a noble crown. On this day you may choose to celebrate one or both.


Christmas Day: A federal holiday celebrated on December 25. Christmas is a Christian holiday marking the birth of the Christ Child. Decorating houses and yards with lights, putting up Christmas trees, giving gifts, and sending greeting cards have become traditions even for many non-Christians.

Hopes for the future

As stated above, NobleLand has many hopes for the future. Someday we may write a Declaration stating our independence to the local, state, and national officials. But NobleLand's biggest dream is to one day be an island. However not a conventional island. as there are many problems with water claims. as seen with Minerva, there can, and are problems. So, instead of a conventional island, NobleLand would hope to one day be like the awe-inspiring Spiral Island. Spiral Island is a floating artificial island in a lagoon near Puerto Aventuras, on the Caribbean coast of Mexico south of Cancún. It was built by British eco-pioneer Richart (or "Rishi") Sowa beginning in 1998; he filled nets with empty discarded plastic bottles to support a structure of plywood and bamboo, on which he poured sand and planted numerous plants, including mangroves. It was destroyed by Hurricane Emily in 2005.Sowa has built a new Spiral Island II in Isla Mujeres, Mexico. The original island sported a two-story house, a solar oven, a self-composting toilet, and three beaches. He used some 250,000 bottles for the 66ft (20 m) by 54 ft (16 m) structure. The mangroves were planted to help keep the island cool, and some of them rose up to 15 ft (5 m) high. The Beginnings of this have actually began starting. In the Summer of 2010, some 65 milk jugs were collected, and 3 of the nation's cabinet members, King Evan The First, Sir Daniel L. Jensen, and Prime Minister Zach headed to a summer camp. While there, King Evan was able to get exactly 32 milk CRATES (the crates your milk comes in at your school). He saw an opportunity and took it. He built the Island 4 crates x 4 crates x 2 crates tall. On the upper half, He stuffed 4 milk jugs into each crate. When all of the milk jugs and crates were used, he lashed it all together with some rope, and put a piece of plywood down, and had an island. yes. NobleLand is one of the few Micronations to actually Legitimately have a homeland. The island was able to support 2 people at a time, and was able to be moved around. However sadly, and the later part of the summer the camp had no choice but to annex the island, as they needed the crates. Someday However, It is our dream to have an island that is completely self sustaining and can be moved at will.

Nobleish (conceptual)

so you take a word, and break it into syllables ...



caw-ley



you break each syllable apart from constants and vowels


(c-aw) (l-ey)



you put a "ay" at the end of the constant a


cay-aw lay-ey



and you put a "g" in front of the first vowel


cay-gaw lay-gey


if there's more than one constant at the beginning they group together

if a word starts with a vowel you just put a "g" at the beginning of it.

Currency

NobleLand currently only has one form of temporary currency. It is called The Tab. The Tab is Worth exactly worth .05 US dollars. this being said, our currency is worth a nickel. The Tab is a good idea for pocket change however, because of the 2 holes in it, it is able to do many things such as make bracelets, necklaces, chains, or even armor. Also, if your not into the creative means, then you can always just put the tab onto a string.

NobleLand Is currently in the process of manufacturing legitimate coins to be handed (sold) out as currency.

Marketing

let’s face it, we're a small country. this country is so small in fact, that pretty much 100% of people don't know we even exist. So, to get the word out, King Evan The First has created several documents to help spread the word of our proud, little nation!! :D

The Flag

One of the best ways to show you’re proud to be a Noble is by carrying around a flag. Now, unlike most countries that typically have flags made of "cloth" we usually have ours made of paper. this happens to make getting a flag a piece of cake. All you do is save it to your hard drive and save it as "My Country's Flag" and save it where ever you want, preferably as a wallpaper, and print it off, put it in your binder, car, house, where ever you'd like.

National Anthem

A great way to show Nationalism is showing friends your national anthem. Ours is called Anthem of an Astronaut: Paint Me a Picture (Noble Anthem).

Pledge

Another awesome way to show that you love your country is by memorizing and saying the Pledge. The Noble Pledge goes something like this:


" 'Never give in,
Never give up'

This is the moto of our country.



Not to be told what to do,
not to be pushed around,
but only to be yourself

stand up for one another,
be a brother and a sister,
be there and together we stand"
