Novanglia, officially the Kingdom of Novanglia (formerly New Yankeeland and New England) or also commonly known as New Yankeeland or New England, is a micronation located in the United States founded on March 1, 2016. The name Novanglia, in Latin, means New England. Today, Novanglia is part of United Kingdom of the Northeast Highlands

2016

Novanglia was founded on March 1, 2016. King Stephen I had always wanted his own nation, but never knew how to start one. In early 2016, King Stephen I discovered the Conch Republic and the Republic of Molossia. After a bit of research and thinking, the founder decided to form his own micronation. The Kingdom of Novanglia's original name was the Republic of Stelegiriots. Stephen I was named as President and Matt as Vice President.

In October 2016, Stelegiriots renamed to the United Provinces of New England and remade its flag. This flag is still in used to this day as its used for all her vassels. In 2018, the flag was updated to its current appearance by by Emperor Charles II of the United Imperial Empire. In January, the nation renamed to Republic of New Yankeeland.

2017

In February 2017, a vote regarding government change was held, and the people voted to for the nation to become a constitutional monarchy. The nation was renamed to Kingdom of New Yankeeland crowning Stephen I as king and naming Matt the prime minister.

In late 2017, after being scouted by the IUM and LOMN, Novanglia went from being a no name nation to being recognized by dozens of nations and being a player on the micronational stage. The kingdom ended up becoming a member of the "Big Six" and and part of the Security Council.

In 2018, Novanglia took part in the 2018 Microcup, an event that brought micronations together for a international soccer or football event. Novanglia won its match against New Rizalia 5-3.

From May 18 to May 21, a cold war stand off between the Duke of Kearsarge-Oceania and Novanglia over the Ark Island took place. From the May 22 to June 2, a war broke out over it. In the end Novanglia won and Kearsarge-Oceania was made into a puppeted nation. Kearsarge-Oceania was renamed to the Duchy of Elizabeth and Prime Minster Edward was crowned Duke.

In June 4, 2018, when Novanglia was still named New Yankeeland, the nation had protracted itself to be the Federal Empire of New Yankeeland with Prussia, Texas, and Elizabeth being its puppets. In early August, Novanglia left the League of Micronations due to issues with several members. Later on August 30, 2018, Novanglia reverted to being a kingdom, losing its empire. Prussia would rename to the Archduchy of Albion and Texas would also leave. However, Elizabeth would remain as a vassal to Novanglia. A few days later, on September 9, New Yankeeland was renamed back to New England. On September 29, the Nov-Anglo Commonwealth was founded as an alliance for the old Federal Empire.
