Nerland, also known as the Talamhcliste Imperiacht in Gaelic is a micronation in northern New Jersey, mainly located along the Raritan River. The nation is very compact and does not wish to overextend it's borders unless it is necessary. It holds knowledge and research as some of its founding values and is nation of origin for the Méadú Agus Loighic ideology.
Origins & the Toppat Clan
Before Talamhcliste, Mórimpire Ishaan was the boss of his own group known as the Toppat Clan. Today this group is recognized as the first pre-Talamhclisteach entity. The clan would break up in early 2015 when many lost faith in its power.
Rise & Fall of the Republic
In later 2015, Ishaan and the Council of Nerds declared the "Republic of Nerdlandia", an oligarchical republic based on pure Méadú Agus Loighic, at the time known as Logikism. This name was deemed too long and changed to Nerland. The republic was unable to get anything acomplished and Chancellor Sanders was not the right leader the country needed to govern. This led to the Council to choose Ishaan to rule once more. He quickly abandoned the failed republic and Ishaan installed a new dictatorship, becoming the Supreme Despot.
Early Despotic Era
This proved successful and allowed the nation to easily be governed with only having to ask one guy when making decisions. Field Marshal Liam joined the ranks of the government with Ishaan & Liam creating many battle plans. Marshal Liam was instrumental to the creation of the original government. After his departure to the U.S. State of Georgia where he formed a new territory and continued to expand the influence of Talamhcliste throughout new areas, the nation known as Astovia was created. Many citizens of Talamhcliste wished to see Astovia wiped off the map like Former Duke Lynch of Lyslia in the Warmonger Crisis of 2017. This popular action of war was prevented due to Mórimpire Ishaan's longstanding friendship with Emperor William and desire to keep peace.
Trials of Diplomacy & the Astovian Civil War
In 2018, Talamhcliste entered the League of Micronations, opening the nation to new opportunities. During the Astovian Cilvil War of 2018, King William of New York awarded the islands of Saint Pierre et Miquelon and Prince Edward Island. After the war, the treaty of Somerset was signed and Talamcliste seized the half of Connecticut west of the Connecticut river while conceding lands on the western boarder to Astovia. On the 16th of October 2018, Talamhcliste joined the NAP with Astovia and others.
Concords and Intermicronational Formations
In 2019, Talamhcliste became a member state of the Reformed Intermicronational Confederation as well as the Alliance of the Crowns which allowed Talamhcliste yet more diplomatic relations and opportunities. The year also came with new reforms in language, titles and culture to give the nation an increasingly distinct identity.
Today, the nation of Talamhcliste is very prosperous compared to the rough republic of the early days and Mórimpire Ishaan wishes to form diplomatic ties with other micronations.
