As you read this page, you may be asking how someone can acquire Citizenship in the Principality of the Northern Forests? Becoming a "Northerner" and acquiring Northern Forest nationality is possible through several routes:

  • Jus sanguinis, that is, being born anywhere in the world to at least one parent who is a Northerner. This requires notification to the Principality of the Northern Forests government in order for the child to be registered as a citizen. At this level the person can petition the Princely Family for a section of land to live on by their 21st birth year.
     

  • Jus soli, that is, anyone born in the Principality of the Northern Forests borders is granted Northerner citizenship regardless of their parents citizenship. Another name for this is birthright citizenship. At this level when the person has the right to petition the Princely Family for a section of land to live by their 18th birth year.
     

  • Naturalization, this the most common way to obtain citizenship in the Principality of the Northern Forests nationality and that is what this page discusses. There are four levels of naturalization: Basic Citizenship, Honourary Citizenship, Non Resident Citizenship, and Resident Citizenship.

 

Basic Citizenship

These are people who simply want to call themselves a citizen of the Principality of the Northern Forests. They are members of Our Facebook groups and interact with other people in Our Northern Forests groups, but that is generally the extent of the involvement. The application can be done online and is simple. The Certificate of Citizenship must be purchased separately. Click the button below to fill out the application for basic citizenship.

 

 

Honourary Citizenship

This level of citizenship is available to people who want to support the Principality of the Northern Forests, but have no intention of living part or full-time in any Principality lands nor do they advocate for the Principality like Non-Resident Citizens or Honourary Consulars. Honouary citizenship is available for a nominal fee and includes a Certificate of Honourary Citizenship that will allow you to visit the Principality of the Northern Forests after 2023 should you choose to do that. Click the button below to get Honourary citizenship for you or someone you love.

 



 

Non-Resident Citizenship

This level of citizenship is for those people who do not live in the Principality, but want to advocate for the Principality. Many Non-Resident Citizens become Honourary Consulars or have other positions that help benefit or advocate for the Principality. In order to hold any type of position in the Principality of the Northern Forests a person must hold Non-Resident or Resident citizenship. Any person can fill out the application below and request to become a Non-Resident citizen. Contact Information is at the end of this page. The application is 11 pages long. We take applications for citizenship very serious. Filling out an application and sending it in does not guarantee Non-Resident citizenship.

Resident Citizenship

This level of citizenship is heavily restricted to those people who live part or full-time in the Principality of the Northern Forests. They have a home there and live at least 3 months of the year within the Principality's borders. This level of citizenship requires extensive background checks, court records checks, evaluations, medieval skillsets, and the person signs extensive waivers in order to live within the borders of the Principality of the Northern Forests. Currently the maximum number of resident citizenships is limited to 50. Applications for resident citizenship are generally by invitation only, but one can request one after they have become a Non-Resident Citizen.
