King releases Christmas speech

The televised Christmas speech

The King’s 2020 Christmas Speech was an historic event, as it was the first ever speech to be released by the Kingdom. It was also the most recent usage of the Ikonian Broadcasting company. The speech was recorded in the Royal Residence on the 24th.

“Greetings and merry Christmas to everyone.

Usually at this time of year people gather together, they make merry, and for a second time in as many months look back and appreciate the things they are given or the misfortunes they have avoided. However, this year is one in which those things are either unfortunately discouraged or simply such a monumental task to find anything to be thankful for.

In this year, we have all faced trials and tribulations, worries for our late and immediate futures, and stresses which we could have never imagined. It is that most discouraging and melancholic feeling which makes this Christmas and holiday season all the more important.

Despite our worries, and despite the attitude of the season being hindered, there still remains that one thing which is the source of our celebrations: love. When our friends and family are kept away from us by the limitations placed on them because of this tragedy which has stricken the whole Earth, we must remember our love for them and theirs for us.

Whenever in doubt, the assurance of love is one thing you can always hold to with gratitude. Further to that, however much of a cliche it may sound, love is the reason for the season.

To remind us of the love the Lord has for us, and to depart that love to our fellow man. But despite our circumstances I like to think and to use the words of Bob Hope, that ‘Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?’ In fact, in this coming year, let us all make up for the worries we suffered and let love of the present and not fear of the future keep us going.

Let us all make peace with our adversaries, break bread with the less fortunate, and be the light for those lost in darkness. So, may we raise our glasses to love and hope, wish each other a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. God bless us, God bless you and God bless Ikonia.”

The King also noted that Christmas honors were to be released on Christmas day to citizens and foreign leaders in other micronations.

Codex of heraldic law established inside the Kingdom

Today on November 7th, His Majesty with collaboration with His Majesty’s Heraldic Authority have ratified the Codicem Heraldica Ikonius, a document that details and explains the heraldic laws foreigners and citizens must follow inside the Kingdom. Failure to do so can end up in a case from the Supreme Court of Ikonia.

This is the first article of legislation passed since the Idolas Act, marking a period of 2 months without legislation. The government has claimed it is slowly ramping up activity and working with His Majesty to create a codex of general law inside the Kingdom.

The Codicem can be found online at https://ikonia.xyz/CHI.pdf.

Ikonia celebrates three year anniversary

Established on 19 October 2018, Ikonia was founded on the principles of independence, liberty, and freedom. Today, the actual birthday of the Kingdom, was a more of an quiet affair, apart from the announcement on certain diplomatic venues, and broadcasts inside the Kingdom. In the office of the King, HM Cameron I, the flag was visited and inspected by the Royal Guards.

From the King, quote “We have excelled in our depth of knowledge, not only on politics, but unity, freedom, and prosperity. We will continue to excel, and do even more in the following year. I call for the celebratory of His Majesty’s Army, Navy, Coastguard, and all government offices, and will therefore close all offices for this week. We will continue to prosper and venture throughout our great Kingdom. I wish all Ikonians and everyone a great Independence Day!”

The foundation of Novaria

The landscape of Novaria

The Kingdom has yet again expanded yesterday evening with the annexation of a ranch in Brazos County, Texas.

A ranch in Texas has been annexed as a March through a proclamation of the Honorable Marquis Wilson.[1] Marches are now instated as a division that cannot be placed as a town nor a city, yet is associated with one due to elections in gubernatorial towns, etc.

The ranch, annexed as the March of Novaria, has been associated with the capital-city of Uvenia. It is inhabited and administered by Marquis Wilson and Charles Wilson, brother to the Marquis. This has raised the Ikonian population to 18.

MASSIVE territorial changes in the Kingdom

Territorial decisions have commenced inside the Kingdom’s government, an our King, Cameron I, has made a final decision.

Mandates, and crown dependencies will turn into a dominion through the Affixed Dominion Act 2019. They must contact the Monarch within a month of becoming a Dominion.

Towns inside Uvenia are governed by the City council of Uvenia, a board of residents of the city.

Counties can now be setup in regions of Uvenia, and of subparts of Davenport, Florida, such as the newest one, Orange County, Uvenia.

Companies can now rule administrative territory, such as the United Rhodesian Company ruling over two islands in Zimbabwe under the name of
Compañía Regla de Rhodesia. This was done through the United Rhodesian Company Act 2019. The company now rules over the islands of Princess Marie Louise Island, and Princess Christian Island.

Dominions are now up and about. The Dominion of Cloverton still operates in New York, the Dominion of the Caribbean has seceded from the Caribbean Community and has land claims inside several member states, and the Dominion of Blake is the annexation of Lake Mongoose near the Royal Residence.
