Kingdom of Pictland formally recognises Independent Long Island
In the beginning, the Kingdom of Pictland was a kingdom in exile, yet it was a powerful Fourth World nation nonetheless, with a history going back in time as far back as 3 March 1812, when the kingdom was proclaimed a Sovereign nation in exile in a Decretum Regius by His Majesty King George III, Hereditary High King of the Northern Picts.
When TTF-Bucksfan, a largely virtual Fifth World nation which is still thriving, was recognised by HM King Derile Pentland II in a Treaty of Recognition between the two kingdoms in January 2002, it was an unprecedented leap in a diplomatic sense, especially for the small TTF-Bucksfan. Since then, both kingdoms have come a long way.
TTF-Bucksfan lead to the now dissolved Fifth World Council organisation, which in turn lead to the powerful Cesidian Root (a bicontinental alternative Internet), to the Independent Long Island (ILI) and United Micronations Multi-Oceanic Archipelago (UMMOA) Fourth and Fifth World phenomena, as well as to an active university and other kinds of institutions.
The Kingdom of Pictland, on the other hand, is no longer a kingdom in exile since they have joined with their brothers, the sovereign tribe of the HeHL in southeast Alaska. The Pictish HeHL have declared HM Derile Pentland II as their king. The Kingdom of Pictland has re-established itself among its peoples as a Sovereign nation with territories once again. The kingdom is also a member of the Micronational Professional Registry (MPR), a premier serious unrecognised government organisation (SUGO), has its own working .PIC top-level domain (TLD) in the Cesidian Root, numbers some 1200-plus cultural creations (Pictish culture is quite complex and unique), and over 1,000,000 active citizens on several continents.
On 1 April 2009, the Kingdom of Pictland registered with Corporations Independent Long Island (CILI), and is now thus recognised by both the goverments of Independent Long Island and the United Micronations Multi-Oceanic Archipelago.
Independent Long Island is recognised by the following Fifth World nations: TTF-Bucksfan, the United Micronations Multi-Oceanic Archipelago, the Duchy of Bohemia, and the Imperium of DeWaCo Estates. Independent Long Island is now also recognised by a Fourth World nation, the Kingdom of Pictland.
If your nation wishes to recognise Independent Long Island (ILI), and this is especially desirable if it is a Fourth World nation, we invite you to register with Corporations Independent Long Island (CILI). CILI has so far registered several nations, and even incorporated the independent and Gibraltar-based Chartered Institute of Global Business Professionals.
Independent Long Island (ILI) has also received indirect recognition from an international organisation of states registered with the Secretary-General of the United Nations in New York, since its overseas territory, the United Micronations Multi-Oceanic Archipelago (UMMOA), was recognised by the International States Parliament for Safety and Peace (ISPSP).
