The Frya Nordland Territories (short: FNT) were established 2020, May 11th, as the result of the reunion from the former Fishtown Newport Territory, an unowned place which might have to be left in the next decade of years; and the Freija Nücke Territoria, an owned land and settlement. Both are located in the costal northern Germany, but seperated by about 100 km distance in direct line.
Due to the restricted size of the ground and inhabitants the declaration of a real "Nation" was not considered to be a realistic solution. So the declaration of an exterritorial sovereign territory was seen as a most accurate definition for the political definition.
The two former and now the new FNT took for a better identification of its special status an own flag which is based on the flag of a never realized foundation of a global wide Nation with the name Koljand in the early 1980’s. The colors present the colors of our earth: Brown for the ground, blue for the water, green for the land and plants, yellow for the sun in the sky. The Crown is a longterm symbol which should signify the independance of the Territories.
In November 2018 between the two former territories began communications about a future reunion into one only form of state with the name Frya Nordland Territories. The formation of this new united Territories was decided in 2019, September 1st. It took some more time until its realisation. Finaly the date was fixed to 2020,May 11th. This allowed Fishtown to celebrate his 5 years of existence and final in the same time, and on the 11th to celebrate the new state.
After consulting various definitions of a "Micronation" and visiting a lot of other Micronation websites it was stated that the FNT is nothing different - except that it have no typical government or "Head of State" and no constitution or similar declaration about the political form of state. As the Chief Administrator can be considered as the only "Master next God", the political system is simply: Autocratic. All Decisions concerning the Territory and its belongings are finaly in his mind without any alternative. So due to this fact the FNT can be considered as nothing else than a Micronation as well.
For diplomatic contracts and official writtings is used this coat of arms, slightly modified to the former one.
All former diplomatic contracts from the Fishtown Newport Territory and Freija Nücke Territoria had been confirmed or renewed up to the date of the new foundation.
Close relations exist to the FM and the Republic of Capricornia.
Diplomatic Relations were also established to the Forstendom Holkau on 2016, March 9th. The Chief Administrator of the Forstendom Holkau, Mr. Holger Kaufhold, is named as representative of the Fishtown Newport Territory, responsible for the diplomatic and consular functions for and on behalf of the FNT in the Forstendom Holkau. Visa Versa, the Chief Adminsitrator of the FNT will be in function for the diplomatic relationsship and consular functions.

One part of the FNT consists of approx. 78 m² not-owned ground inside a North German town called by certain locals "Fishtown" due to its history in fishing industries. The location of the FNT in the City is on the border of a basin of the port area called "Neuer Hafen", in English Newport. The Territory consists of a major part of ca. 72 m² plus a close-by separated area of ca. 8 m². This is the territory which formed before the Fishtown Newport Territory.
The second part of the FNT is the former Freija Nücke Territoria, consisting of an owned ground of a bit more than 1300 m², with several buildings and plenty trees and green on it. It is famous for its flora and fauna.
A Third part of the territories named "Carl's Residence" is located much more south, close to Cologne, having about 105 m² plus a close-by area of about 8 m². Being far from the other territorial parts it is only administrated by distance from the main seat of administration and the FNT postal service actually is not operating there.
The Administration of the Frya Nordland Territories decided and declared on May 22, 2020: "Our definition of territorial ownership" - readable in the document linked below.
June 22, 2020, the FNT placed his territorial claim about the island of Saint Paul, in the South Indian Ocean at latitude 38 ° 43' South and longitude 77 ° 32' East with an surface of about 7 km², as a territorial part of the FNT. Details about this claim and the justification of the claim by the FNT can be read in this document.
As described in the adjoint document, if valid objections were not raised within one year, i.e. by 21 of June, 2021 the FNT claim is considered to be lawfully confirmed and the island become a definite new territorial part of the FNT.
Official language is English, usualy widely practiced language is German; English and French, but also other idioms like f.e. Kur-Palatine (local dialect of the area of the town of Heidelberg) and East-Frisian are common.
The FNT is inhabited constantly by 4 to 5 persons, plus numberless kinds and quantities of non-domestic animals, enjoying the fresh green condition of the territory, for the former Nücke Territory.
It was one of the long discussions in the
reunion process if the currency of the new FNT should remain as before the Euro
(€) or if an own currency should be created. Due to some reasonable arguments
it was decided to maintain the € as the practicable "hard" money, but to
create a calculated currency for inner economical administration. This most
probably ever remaining virtual currency (no plans about printing / minting
money) is fixed with the start of the new Frya Nordland Teritories
with an exchange rate of 1 to 1 with the Euro (€) and called Calculated
Nord, shown as " c
N " . At this position the actual
exchange rate is allways shown:
2020, May 11th: 1,00 Euro (€)
= 1,00 c
Postal Service of the FNT
A special agreement was renewed with the Capricornia Post Extraterritorial Agencies (CPEA) from the Republic of Capricornia (a state in the FM ) concerning postal services in the Territory.
