Neukaltsburg (nɔɪ̯ːkalt͡s:bʊʁk), is a dependent vassal state of the Republic of Icenia in the Northwestern continent. It is located on the small unincorporated peninsula west of Verona of Varkonia at approximately -5600, -1300 which includes the towns of former Kaltstadt & Hafenstadt, and includes the small mushroom island to the immediate southwest, approximately -5900, -1000. Neukaltsburg has no active population at this time (March 2021) as it is undergoing renovations and is not yet suitable for residency.
Founder and Establishment
Founder BeanQuee joined CivClassic on February 27th, 2021 and was warmly received by Icenia. After a Newfriend tour given by President ChrisChrispie, she established residency in Icenia City, built a small homestead on a private island, and made a great and troubling journey in the West to Kaliningrad before visiting the abandoned settlement of Kaltsburg on the way back to Icenia. Germany and the German language hold a dear place in BeanQuee's heart and for that reason, she was inspired to revive this quaint, yet lifeless, nation as a personal project. On March 4th, she took the initiative to contact the former King Deyan and made an inquiry to his thoughts on transferring ownership. He quickly responded that would be "very fine" and indicated that the many empty buildings would make for a great start.
According to the founding document, Vassallin BeanQuee's intention is to "modernize and renovate, while honoring the cultural background of this nation." Existing buildings will be preserved as designated historical sites and previous residents, should they accept Neukaltsburg authority, are invited to return and keep their builds. Plans for the region include a mining outpost with a quarry and various farms.
Change in Leadership
Neukaltsburg was incorporated into Icenia March 17th, 2021. Only a week later, there was an exchange on the Icenian Discord BeanQuee found misogynistic and inappropriate; having voiced that opinion and been met with a lack of support, she renounced her citizenship and resigned her post as Vassallin. She has since settled in Mount September. Neukaltsburg has no current leadership, but remains a territory of Icenia.
