Meckelnburgh (/mɛkəlnbɜɹg/ MEK-əln-burg; Meckelnish: Meckelmberg; Aspiranto: Mekelnburgo), officially the Kingdom of Meckelnburgh, is a coastal, sub-polar country on Micras, located on the Meckelnburgh Peninsula of Apollonia along the Northern Sea. It is a semi-constitutional monarchy, ruled by Queen Ĉielero III, organized around a centralized mixed-market economy.

Etymology

The name Meckelnburgh derives from the Old Holzer term for the Alexandretta Fortress, where it meant "broad fortress." The original fortress stands still on the Alexandretta coast, long since renamed for the capital city. During The Troubles, the name Meckelnburgh became increasingly associated with the wider region of Alexandretta, until taken up formally in the medieval Duchy of Meckelnburgh. After Meckelnburgh's victories in the Wars of Unification, Vilhelmo IV proclaimed Meckelnburgh to be the united kingdom of the Meckelnish people. The name has remained since.

"Meckelnburghish" versus "Meckelnish"

Both Meckelnburghish and Meckelnish are correct demonymic adjectives for people and things associated with Meckelnburgh. Meckelnburghish traditionally refers to the Kingdom of Meckelnburgh and its government (e.g. Meckelnburghish crown) while Meckelnish traditionally refers to the ethnic people of Meckelnburgh and their culture (e.g. Meckelnish language).
