Kilian was born in Neunkirchen, Germany until the age of 5. He lived in many places during his childhood, due to that he was in a military family and moved from Germany and the U.S back and forth. He has always taken an interest in military history such as the roman empire to World War II.
During his early teenage years he enjoyed making short films ranging from Romans to modern day warfare. He also has a hobbies of building models such as aircraft or ships.
By the time he was 18 he enlisted in the U.S Navy and plans on doing it for 20 years until his military service is complete for retirement.
Its not very clear how Kilian found out about micro nations, but there is a possible chance that the British documentary show "How to Start Your Country" by Danny Wallace in the year of 2012 got him interested in the idea and pursued it to happen. He is now the leader of his nation which is landlocked by the Federal Republic of Germany.
