His Majesty’s Heraldic Authority had an official website recently created for the public – some inside sources say the website has been in construction since August 2020.
The website provides Ikonian citizens the ability to request for a coat of arms, search through the roll of arms, and read up on heraldic traditions, both from Ikonia and from the macronational world. It finally provides Ikonians a way to interact with the Authority, outside from messaging the King.
There have also been other changes: Three members of the Commoner Council have been removed from their duties due to inactivity, and the signing of the mutual recognition Treaty of Fayette between Ikonia, the New Richmond Republic, and the Confederation of the Northern Coast.
In other news, it is to be expected that His Majesty the King will soon release the annual Christmas honors list and address the nation with a Christmas speech. Stay tuned for more!
The Regiment is currently not manned by one commander besides the King, but is reporting to have one troop attached.
In other news, the Commandant General and Captain General, the Duke of Limiport and Sir Luis Sanchez respectively— have officialized the new badges, ranks, and a ceremonial flag for His Majesty’s Marines. The insignia sports a new red and gold colour scheme, with anchors, swords, crowns, and waves.
Lastly, the Armed Forces of Ikonia announced in the official Ikonian discord server that recruiting for all branches in the force are now open, and that a official website for all things relating to the force are to be created soon in collaboration with Reactive Solutions, the only software company in the country.
The government in accordance with the Ikonian Honours System, have just released the list of recipients for the numerous amounts of awards given on Christmas Day.

STATEMENTS FROM RECIPIENTS
“It’s a great honour. Ikonia is an up and coming micronation that has a lot to offer the community and to be recognized by them in this way is very humbling” – Matthew of Essexia
“Baustralia and Ikonia may have had some rough patches, however, what is important is that we’ve made up. I am honoured to be awarded these from your King. I hope we can continue to work together and become close like before.” – John I of Baustralia
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.
Our great Kingdom has come together as one once again, and have demanded more science implementation. Collaboratively, the Ikonian people, the King, and the President of the Catholique Socialist Republic, Aidan McGrath founded the JISA, a space agency for micronations all.
The JISA plans to launch a drone high enough into air to see the earth’s curvature in late January or early February, under the Poseidon program, with their first mission being the Poseidon 1.
JISA was founded on 19 January 2019, and our wonderful King, Cameron I has decided to take the role of Administrator, along with managing documents and keeping the JISA team in check.
JISA was also launched with the help of Deputy Administrator Aidan McGrath, who has developed assets such as the Poseidon program patches, and uniforms.
