History

Nova England as a micronation was first conceived following its founder Josephus discovering micronations through a simple advert of the Danny Wallace's 'Lovely' Project. After weeks of attempting to start a micronation within the actual Lovelian Forums, Josephus then established Nova England's first forum. Although now lost to the winds it enabled Nova England to finally start to develop its somewhat unusual culture. The forum at first attracted a mixture of English Nationalists who all shaped the nation towards its first cultural identity which was based on Roman Britain. However this was latter developed further to allow for more Anglo Saxon elements to be pushed into the culture which is reflected best in East Moorland English which is a complete bastardisation of Latin and Anglo Saxon. Early in its history Nova England became close allies with another nation based upon the British Isles, that nation was New Britannia. NE and NB shared very close relations with each other right up and till NB's death in which the spirit of their nation was passed on to the Nova English who still upkeep some of NB's territories now.

During 2008 Nova England became a SAR of Riponia due to worries that mass activity may have caused the death of the Fatherland. However almost as soon as Nova England joined activity was boosted by the pure number of Nova English attempting to achieve Nova English separation from Riponia. Yet in the end no such political wills were needed as Riponia died and Nova England became a De facto Nation. Over the past few years Nova England has followed a rather isolationist policy but since mid-2010 it has seen a large revolution in terms of activity and production. Which has caused it to seek out foreign nations in attempts to trade goods and services in order to fund and continue various developments.

In 2012 the Kingdom of Nova England suffered a dramatic drop in activity, which ultimately resulted in its removal from the map. During this period New Sussex was absorbed into what is now known as Mercurian Nova England with the New Britannian Territories being claimed by other nations.

During early 2013 the Kingdom of Nova England re-established itself within the former New Britannian Territories. Focused around the newly established capital at Port Impregnable, the Kingdom of Nova England began to engage in relations with other nations and aided in the initial setting up of the Dominion before once again succumbing to inactivity.

As of January 2017 the Kingdom of Nova England has reformed in the National Redoubt Region of Eastmoorland.


Government

See also; Politics of Nova England, List of Political Parties in Nova England


The Kingdom of Nova England is a unitary state under a constitutional monarchy. King Josephus I is the head of state of NE. The Constitution of Nova England is uncodified and consists mostly of a collection of disparate written sources, including statutes and international treaties, together with constitutional conventions.

Nova England has a parliamentary government with the Witan forming the legislative body. All bills passed are given Royal Assent before becoming law. Elected representatives within the Witan are known as ‘Members of Witan’ (MoW), with the head of the Witan being known as the Witan Chief. The position of Witan Chief is the head of the Nova English government and is typically the leader of the political party or coalition of parties that hold the majority of seats within the Witan. Following an election the candidate for Witan Chief has their appointment confirmed by the monarch.

Only two main ministries exist within the mechanisms of the government, with these being the Ministry of Defence and the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Whilst foreign relations are dealt by the Office of the Witan Chief.

Currently the Witan is being operated by a provisional government, with elections planned to reinstate elected representatives.

Geography

Mainland Nova England is located upon the large continent of Keltia. The terrain of the nation itself is somewhat varied, with lowlands on the mainland part of New Sussex. Where as Large once volcanic islands that make up the rest of New Sussex (Mercurian Nova England). In contrast there were the large mountainous chains of East Moorland and the far stretching forests of Southern Burwood. Both of which make up part of the evacuated territories. In the far south were the Britannic Territories, most of which are currently under foreign occupation.

Currently the Faedertellus is expanding into former Eastmoorland territories from the mountainous National Redoubt Region of Eastmoorland.

Military

The bulk of Nova England's military falls under the remit of the Nova English Armed Forces which itself is directed by the Ministry of Defence. In addition to this the Ministry of Defence also maintains control of independent People's Militia units, the National Military Schooling Institute, Royal Para-Military Police, the National Defence Initiative, the Meteorological Office, Nova English Weapons and the intelligence gathering organisation Special Operations Executive.

Support for the Armed Forces has always been strong within the population, with many citizens undertaking voluntary service within the Armed Forces or a branch of the People's Militia.

Despite being disbanded following the Great Disaster, the Ministry of Defence was re-established in 2017 with the reformation of the Faedertellus and the passing of the Reorganisation of the Nova English Armed Forces Act. The current Ministry of Defence Chief is Colonel (Ret.) Alfwaerd Killer.

Regions

Nova England is made up from a number of regions with the major regional boundaries which are known as Provincias and then smaller sub-divisions which are known as counties. Traditional Nova English Provincias consist of East Moorland, New Sussex, Burwood and Nova English Korea. This later expanded to include the New Britannian Territories following the collapse of the Britannian Empire. However following the evacuations of late 2009 only the Provincias of New Sussex (Albeit Diminished), Nova English Korea and the New Britannian Territories. As of March 2017, the Kingdom of Nova England is centred within the National Redoubt Region of Eastmoorland.

National Redoubt Region (Eastmoorland).

Exarch: N/A

Population: 786,906 (As per National undertaken following the completion of the Hild Plan - December 2017)

Capital: Newcastle-Upon-Eastmoor

Counties: National Redoubt Region.

The National Redoubt Region of Eastmoorland, has long been a bastion of the Faedertellus. Centred around the city of Newcastle-Upon-Eastmoor, the region utilises the national terrain to house the ultimate fallback location. Prior to the Evacuations and the Great Disaster the region boosted a number of industries ranging from agriculture to vehicle manufacturers. However since the rebirth the region has become the starting point of the resurgent Kingdom of Nova England, with its former industries slowly being rebuilt.

Culture

Nova English culture is inspired by a mixture of cultural elements borrowed from various parts of English history. This first took the form of inspiration coming from Roman Britain but has since evolved into a reimagining of Anglo Saxon culture. The Nova English as such are a hardy people, independent but fiercely loyal to the Faedertellus (Fatherland).

Religion

Religion in Nova England is dominated by the indigenous Christian Church of the Holy Lance. A branch of Christianity that developed within Nova England based upon an additional book within the bible known as the ‘Book of The Holy Lance’. However despite the Church of the Holy Lance being the most common religion within the Faedertellus, other Christian churches and religions are also practiced; these being Omnism, Nova English Paganism and the Church of St George.

Sports

Many Nova English participate in various sports, including Rugby, Football, Squash and Field Hockey. Following the Evacuations and the Great Disaster, the Nova English national football team and many clubs moved to Mercurian Nova England where they continue to play on both the international and Mercurian circuits.

Venison Stew

Martial Arts also played a major role in the Nova English life style, with many people taking up either Wing Chun or the domestic and increasing popular Déor-fýst. Both styles are centred on providing the operator the best tools to defend themselves in the most efficient way. In 2017 the Fréo-Fýst League was established to allow inter-martial art competition within Nova England.

Cuisine

Cuisine in Nova England is centred on various game meals partnered with copious amounts of Ale. Due to the low population density of Nova England venison and other game have generally been common and is served in all branches of the population.

A common meal eaten in the Faedertellus is Ale & Venison stew which is often served alongside a pint of Dark Ale.

Economy of Nova England

List of Companies of Nova England

Following the Evacuations and the Great Disaster, the Nova English economy is currently engaged in a recovery phase. The current focus of the economy has been the reestablishment of national infrastructure, including a major rail link to the Republic of Mercury. Whilst dissolved companies have been asset stripped and auctioned to Nova English citizens planning to create either new firms or rekindle the assets of the dissolved companies.

Traditionally the Nova English economy has consisted of a firm bias towards the manufacture of military equipment. Which include small arms, naval vessels, vehicles, aircraft and munitions. In addition to a strong agricultural industry, which allowed Nova England to be self-sufficient in produce.

The current trends of the Nova English economy suggest a return to the norm with several companies offering services to the Nova English military, alongside a strengthening agricultural sector.

In April 2017 the Nova English Trading Company was established to enable exports & imports with member nations of the USSO Common Market.
