The Domain and Realms of the Shadows and the Darkness(or simply the Domain) is a constitutional monarchial micronation made up of twenty-seven Realms. Founded on the Winter Solstice of 2001, one of its main purposes has been to bring together all those who are of a magickal, metaphysical, mystickal, or spiritual nature, to work together for the benefit of the magickal community and the world. It is also a safe haven and middle ground for all those who believe in magick, regardless of race, religion, path, belief, or whatever difference. Magick - in whatever perception - and the belief therein is the point that unifies our people as a whole.
The Domain is spread across the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Oceania, the Caribbean, Bermuda, the Netherlands, France, and Spain. Our government is comprised of Nobles who are essentially appointed to their positions of rule over areas of the Domain by the Imperium. The highest positions are that of the Imperium itself, comprised of and ur-Lord and/or High Queen, a Knight Commander of the Knightly Orders, and a Truthspeaker and Seer who serve as advisors to the ur-Lord and/or High Queen. The Imperium oversees, guards, and protects all that is within the Domain and Realms. From there it goes to the Rulers of the Realms themselves, and so on and so forth down the line. Though primarily concerned with setting our own business in order, we are on friendly and cordial terms with other micronations, as well as being active individually and as a group within the magickal community. The current High Court is Caer RivenMyst(Dublin, Ireland), was established on Foundation Day(December 21, in which the Domain celebrates its creation), when the current ur-Lord first set foot atop the Hill of Tara.
We are by no means the first micronation of our kind out there. There have been those that came before us who served as inspiration and paved the way for the Domain. The Coyotl-Tec Federation, The Wiccan Sovereignty of AVALON(which became the Principality of Farran Eayst), and the Antonine Imperium, just to name a few. Unfortunately, many of those have fallen away in the past.
The Domain intends to be around for a long, long time.
