Immigration:

We are delighted that people want to obtain citizenship in our small nation! It is very easy – just fill in the application form found on this website.

We have no property inside our nation for sale. It is simply too crowded in our very small nation. But, to handle this problem we are encouraging citizens to contact us and discuss a possible incorporation of  said citizen’s property.

The Archduke’s Hymn

cropped-symbols-of-mimas.png

The Royal Anthem – The Archduke’s Hymn

Written and created by Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil, the song ”This is the hour” is part of the musical ”Miss Saigon”. In the musical the song is dedicated to communist regime taking control in Vietnam. The lyrics are however not bound to any political wing and is in Mimas solely a token of respect and appreciation to His Royal Highness the Archduke.

One Man to Heed Us

HRH. Archduke Christoph II has admired the work of Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil for a long time and now the Mimasian government honours their work by making ”This is the hour” the Royal Anthem.

You can listen to it here:

The lyrics:

This is the hour
This is our land
We found the power
In our brother’s hand
And from a storm
Pierced with light
Fierce and white
The lightning came
A bright’ning flame
To end the night

One man to heed us –
Each girl, each boy
One voice to lead us
In a song of joy

This is the hour
This is our land

The Mimasian Defense Force

Försvarsmakten

The Mimasian Defense Force

The Archduchy of Mimas takes pride in being a peaceful micronation. Therefore the main purpose of the Mimasian Defense Force is to brew and drink coffee.

If a battle would be inevitable it will be fought inside computer games. This is the result of the law which states that: ”No Mimasian citizen shall never be ordered to kill or hurt another human being. If such order would be received from a superior officer the soldier have the full right to leave the army without repercussion”.

Being a part of the coffee making Mimasian Defense Force is compulsory for at least one year.

The Archduchy of Mimas is a gender equal nation and all citizens enter the Defense Force on the same grounds. All current citizens have received the rank of Sergeant Coffee Maker.

Signed

HRH Archduke Christoph II

General of the Defense Force

Archducal Message from Xi’an

His Royal Highness Archduke Christoph II comments his travels and the situation in Greece.

Good day.

The royal company and I are currently in Xi’an, China. Our journey is most exciting and we see and learn new things everyday. Today we visited the Terracotta Army which impressed us with its size and incredible numbers.

Most western social media is banned in China. This explains the almost total radio silence from our side.

Even if it often seems to us that the world is paused when we are away, we do try to keep updated. On this note I wish to publicly declare the Archduchy’s official stand towards the crisis in Greece.

”We feel with the greek people. What has happened in Greece is the result of irresponsible financial affairs that have been allowed to exist for too long. We hope that the government of Greece will take their responsibility not only for the good of their country but for the good of Europe. Greece entered the European Union and as a member one can not act alone. We hope that Greece will start acting with their allied friends and stop walking the trail of a lonley wolf. We hope that all EU members can agree to truly unite this sunday at the top meeting.”

This concludes the Archducal message of the 8th of July 2015.

The Summer Itinerary

It is my honour to for the first time officially announce HRH Archduke Christoph II’s Summer Itinerary. While HRH is abroad the Royal Parliament, the Government, the Minister-President and the Privy Council will not be in active duty (except for emergencies). It is therefore my duty to give all of you an early update on the length of HRH Summer Journeys.

Please note that this itinerary is only preliminary and will most likely change during the coming days, weeks and months.

  • June 13th – Leaves the Malmo HQ for Russia
  • June 21st – Arrives in Ulaanbaatar
  • June 26th – Arrives in Beijing
  • July 29th – Arrives in Copenhagen
  • July 30th – Arrives at his summer retreat in the Hawk District of Mimas
  • August 5th – All governmental and royal offices are taken into active duty again

As you might have calculated this means that it is only just above two weeks until the governmental services will be closed for the summer holiday. If you need to contact the Archduchy please do so as soon as possible.

All messages received during the summer holidays will most probably not be answered until August. The Office of the Marshal of the Realm, the Office of the Minister-President and HRH the Archduke will still operate the Twitter account but not as frequent.

If you have any further questions do not hesitate to ask them on Twitter, in the comment section below or at our Email:
