Hrafnarfjall, officially the Kingdom of Hrafnarfjall, is an autonomous territorial entity which claims to be a sovereign state, aiming for independence, which may be also referred to as an unrecognised nation.
Formation of the Kingdom of Hrafnarfjall
The Kingdom of Hrafnarfjall was formed on 14 May 2016 by now-King Thomas and Queen Laura sitting alongside other members as part of a Council. The Kingdom of Hrafnarfjall began thus as a Council Ruled country and as an attempted Democracy. However, in its first two years of existence, the Kingdom only developed a weak foundation, and any development overall was slow and stunted due to some of its original citizens taking advantage of the Democratic process in a negative manner. Then, at the dawn of 2018, the monarchy formed as the Reign of King Thomas and Queen Laura began. Those citizens who had stunted the country’s growth prior were expelled. Development has exploded since, with 130 members following on Facebook and 55 e-citizens, including many landed States. Finally, with other nations desiring to join in alliance, The Confederation of the Raven was formed in 2018, but was quickly reestablished as the North Sea Empire The establishment is planned for early 2019 in the area referred to as Minnesota.
