Welcome on the official website of the Grand Duchy of Flandrensis:
“The only country in the world that doesn’t want its land

inhabited by people”

As an environmental nonprofit organization (vzw Groothertogdom Flandrensis) we use micronationalism to raise on a creative manner awareness for climate change and Antarctica. We hope that you will explore our website and enjoy your visit.

A worldwide community


Flandrensis, le Grand-Duché qui
veut sauver la planète

The Hope of Civic Action: Grand Duke Nicholas at ChangeNow 2022 (Paris) talking about ecological micronationalism.

American anthropologist Chris Roth, from the University of Milwaukee, is a rare example of a scholar who studies micronations. Also a speaker at Alcatraz, he says of Flandrensis “It is one of the most successful micronations, probably because he chose Antarctica, which invites micronational projects. But furthermore, he took the angle of global warming, which is a very contemporary issue. Others have done a website for an Antarctica-based micronation but never as seriously. In this sense, he is leading the way”
