In July of 2005, after much thought, I decided to found the nation of Vikesland.
As I do work in television I also decided to document this quest in documentary form or perhaps even in Mini-series form.
I became very interested in Micronationalism in late 2004 and the thought of starting a country (though somewhat insane) intrigued
me. Hence the seed for Vikesland was planted and has grown into the small nation it is today.
The reason for the documentary is two-fold. To bring the ideas of Micronationalism to the general public, which for the
most part, has never even heard of it.
Secondly this will bring much attention to Vikesland itself and it will help gain it legitimacy as a non-sovereign
territorial nation. Non sovereign simply means that we may not have true control over any territory other than private lands
owned in other countries. We still are subject to the laws of the country we are in. For example all of the land Vikesland
uses is privately owned land in Canada, thus we are subject to Canadian law. Canada does not officially recognize the sovereignty
of Vikesland. However there are nations all over the globe that are recognized as legitimate political and cultural entities
with working governments and heads of state. They do not have any sovereign territory to speak of. Example: The sovereign
Knights of Malta. Vikesland wishes to gain similar status not by having established countries give recognition (although that
would be nice) but by the people who declare themselves citizens of Vikesland.
Shooting for this Documentary has however been ceased and efforts towards a fun reality series are now the priority.
