On 25 June 2019, the Royal Family of the Norfolk Empire, a new micronation surrounded by the American States of Florida and North Carolina, officially declared independence from the United States of America. They sent the Declaration of Independence to the President of the United States of America, the Secretary of State of the United States of America, the Governor of Florida, the Governor of North Carolina, the Representative for Florida’s 15th Congressional District, the Representative for North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, the Representative for Florida’s 13th Congressional District, and the Pinellas County Administrator. After the multiple declarations of independence were sent to each of those individuals, the Royal Family of the Norfolk Empire signed the thirty article-long constitution of the Norfolk Empire.
The goal of the Norfolk Empire is to be a successor of the Aztec Empire, which is why Nahuatl is one of the unofficial languages of the Norfolk Empire. The government is a semi-parliamentary monarchy, so the monarchy, which the Monarch is HIM Emperor Jason Norfolk I , has slightly more power than the Parliament, which consists just of the House of Commons.
Currently, the Norfolk Empire has not been able to capture to the District of New Tenochtitlan, which will eventually be hosting the capital city of the Norfolk Empire, from the Republic of Tamcoop. So, the Emperor has signed a royal decree to have the provisional capital of the Norfolk Empire be the City of New Brookeside, the Duchy of Dellfolk.
The Norfolk Empire hopes that it will be able to last long and to be able to gain more citizens.
