The Benacian Union was represented at Microvision 2021 by Víkingur Ólafsson, with the song "Andante".


A subdued and reflective piece, performed and filmed amidst the site of a Model Bailiwick settlement in Northern Elwynn, illustrating how Benacia is being brought together and reunited through the rediscovery of civilised higher culture.

The aim and final purpose of this piece, and of all music, shall be none other than the glory of Homeland and the refreshment of the soul.

This piece has been licensed for performance after review by the Lord High Censor of Benacia, on behalf of the Guild of Magisters-Carnifex and the United Ecclesiastical Corporation of Benacia. It shall not be considered a heretical offence to perform, hear, record, or disseminate this piece in its current form. Order given on this day, as indicated, in the year 1701 after Norton.


Reactions and propaganda

  • Constancia Constancia: By order of the Autokrator of Constancia, in a bid for Raspur Pact solidarity, this was aired for regular periods on national and state radio.
  • Senya Senya: Senyan audiences were appreciative of the musical skill and talent on display, though some were left disappointed with the lack of a vocal performance to accompany it.
  • Jingdao Jingdao (Great Apollonia Great Apollonia): Diwang Hon Ben Erasmus told to confidants that "at least the Benacian Union still knows what culture is" and praised the song as the sole entry worth winning.
  • Floria Floria: The performance was well received from the Florian classical music commuity.
