Book I: Freyja's Book

 

Part I: National Territory and Borders

 

Article I: On the National Territory of the High Realm

 

The Most Glorious High Queen Sigrid the Brave is sitting on the Longships Throne dressed in full Imperial Robes. The Imperial Consort is receiving in audience several Citizens of Stormark who wish to consult Her Most Imperial and Most Royal Majesty on legal matters. A man named Abjörn Brýningrsson steps forward and walks to High Queen Sigrid. He bows deeply for the Imperial Consort and then asks: "Your Most Imperial and Most Royal Majesty, what do the current laws and customs of the land say about what constitutes the national territory of the High Realm?"

 

"Dearest Citizen, During Our travels through the High Realm after Our Coronation We have learned that Our Beloved Citizens nowadays consider the planet known within Freyja's Gift as Micras as their sole and exclusive home and that they do not wish any other; therefore the national territory of the High Realm shall continue to consist of the lands that the High Realm currently claims and holds on the planet of Micras which shall be emulated by membership in the Micronational Cartography Society. The national territory shall also include the High Realm's territorial seas, internal waters, seabed, subsoil, continental and insular shelves, and other submarine areas as well as the air space above all of the aforementioned. The waters around, between and connecting the islands of the several archipelagoes of Freyja's Gift, regardless of their breadth and dimensions, shall also be part of the internal waters of the High Realm."
