The Imperial Geographical Society yesterday conducted an expedition of exploration through Cheam Park and the adjoining Nonsuch Park.

The two parks together make up a large area of fields and woodland which straddles the border between the London Borough of Sutton and the county of Surrey.

The expedition of three was led by Emperor Jonathan I, and discovered a dry riverbed, some basic wooden shelters constructed in the woods, and some wild parakeets.

Views of various London landmarks, including Battersea Power Station, Wembley Stadium, and the BT Tower were available from high ground on Cheam Park.

Wildflower Meadows protests against sovereignty infringements

A plastic fence which has been placed around most of the border of Wandleside, blocking off much of the access from the UK.

Princess Hannah of Wildflower Meadows has today sent letters of protest to local British authorities regarding infringements of her country’s sovereignty.

A plastic fence was yesterday erected around Wandleside, one of the principality’s several sovereign claims, blocking most of the border with the UK.

Letters of protest were sent to the London Borough of Sutton Council, which is assumed to be responsible for the erection of the fence, and to the MP responsible for the constituency surrounding Wandleside, Tom Brake.

Princess Hannah has informed the local British authorities that while she is “pleased to note… [their] government’s tacit recognition of the new international border”, she “demand[s] an end to the blockade”.

Earlier in the year, barriers were installed in the road running past Wandleside, restricting vehicular access from the UK, and mere weeks after the land was claimed in November last year, a security camera was set up by the British observing the newly independent territory.

The United Kingdom’s blockade of Wandleside has also been criticised by local British residents on grounds relating to the environment and to traffic safety.

The Principality of Wildflower Meadows is a protected state of Austenasia, and the Emperor has ensured Princess Hannah – who is also his fiancée – that the Principality has the full support of the Empire.

Order of St Constantine completes charity project

Example of items donated to charity shops by Project Melania

The Order of Saint Constantine has completed its first major philanthropic project, over the course of which it has donated over two hundred items to charity shops.

The Order was founded by Emperor Jonathan I in May last year as a Christian philanthropic order of chivalry.

On 8 June the following month, the Order of Saint Constantine launched Project Melania, with the aim of supplying charity shops with good quality but unwanted items given away for free at the end of large car boot sales.

Every Wednesday, members of the Order would go to a car boot sale in Wimbledon and collect unsold items given away for free at the end. These items would then be given to various charity shops throughout the London Boroughs of Sutton and of Merton.

The long-running weekly car boot sales from which these items were sourced came to an end on Wednesday 12th, and the last of the collected items were donated earlier this morning, bringing Project Melania to a close.

In total, Project Melania donated ninety three books, seventy CDs, forty four DVDs, and nineteen items of bric-a-brac (ornaments, crockery, etc) to charity shops supporting four different charities: Oxfam, Hospices of Hope, St Raphael’s Hospice, and Marie Curie.

The Order of Saint Constantine is now looking for new ideas of ways to support charitable causes.

Austenasia featured in Sutton Guardian for a fourth time

The newspaper article on the cession of the Zone.

The Sutton Guardian has run an article on the Empire of Austenasia for the fourth time since 2009.

The article, printed on the fifth page of the weekly free newspaper delivered throughout the London Borough of Sutton, was published in response to the recent cession of the Zone to Renasia. A more detailed version of the article has been uploaded to the Sutton Guardian website.

The article printed in the newspaper contains a large photograph of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Jonathan I, and a smaller one of the Zone, the area in Poulter Park which was ceded to Renasia last month.

Unfortunately, there were some slight factual inaccuracies in the printed edition. The paper stated that Austenasia declared independence in 2009 rather than 2008, and that the Empire is comprised of 11 rather than 17 pieces of land. The headline also referred to Renasia as a “rival”, but did correctly state in the article that it enjoys good diplomatic relations with the Empire.

This is the fourth time Austenasia has featured in the Sutton Guardian; previous articles on the Empire were published in January 2009, September 2011, and February 2013.
