Vinland is a new nation on CivMC located on Impendia in the northeastern region of the map. It is situated on the world border and resides east of Baile and north of S.P.Q.R.’s Bruma territory.

Founded by both DSbulldogs and rt6yhjyuvy6, Vinland is a Nordic nation that embraces Viking heritage and is comprised of a tight knit body of citizens. The government of Vinland is classified as a dictatorship where the two kings (Konungrs) assume ultimate authority and decide the future direction of the nation from input provided by its citizens.

While Vinland is new to CivMC, being officially established on September 7th 2023, its founding core group of players have an extensive background together from previous non-affiliated nations servers. It is the offspring of a 2017 nation dubbed “Atlas”, and a 2021 private SMP server named Dreamstate. Further linage back of its starting players includes memberships of the great factions of LSA in 2015.

Alliances and Foreign Relations

Vinland is allied with long-standing neighbor S.P.Q.R, established via the VINLAND-SPQR Alliance Declaration on November 6th, 2023. As of June 10th 2024 Vinland has joined the ASN allying with Baile, Icenia, Volterra, and Nara.

Citizenship and Structure

Citizenship into Vinland is at the ultimate discretion of the two Konungrs. It heavily based off the personality match of existing players within the nation, dedication to playing the server, personal intentions or goals, and history of playtime.

Vinland's starting settlement, established September 7th, 2023.

The structure of Vinland is a four-tier hierarchy system. The Konungrs (or Kings) of Vinland reside at the top. The second in chain of command are Jarls, citizens that are responsible for a division of operations along with the personnel under them and report to the Konungrs directly. An appointed speciality (agriculture, diplomatic relations, militaristic operations) is required to become a Jarl. The third and fourth classes of citizens are referred to as Karls and Thralls. Karls lead Thralls in their assigned division and report to the Jarl above them. All citizens (except allied diplomats) start as Thralls, the base citizenship rank.

Dual citizenship positions are offered to high-ranking citizens in nations that are allied with Vinland. These positions are maxed at one per nation. The new incoming citizen is brought in as the rank of Karl and appointed under the diplomatic Jarl. While they maintain their core citizenship with the nation they are from, their new key role in Vinland serves as liaison between the two nations.

Movement between classes of citizenship is based on specific roles held within the nation and the performance of the player in their current duties. Appointments to the next class from Thrall to Karl and from Karl to Jarl begin with a nomination from an existing Jarl to the Konungrs. If approved, the individual is then informed and delegated the new role and responsibilities they inherit. Then, well we party… hard.
