As you read this page, you may be asking how someone can acquire Citizenship in the Principality of the Northern Forests? There are currently three levels to being a citizen of the Principality thus, 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 three levels of naturalization: Honourary Citizenship, Basic Citizenship, and Resident Citizenship.

Honourary Citizenship

This level of citizenship is available to people who desire to support the Principality of the Northern Forests, but have no intention of living in any Principality lands. 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. Honourary citizenship can be purchased in the Principality's Online Store.

This level of citizenship is available to 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. They become advocates, take official positions in government and represent the Principality everywhere they go. The application can be done online and is simple. The Hard-Copy of the Certificate of Citizenship must be purchased separately. 
 

Resident Citizenship

This level of citizenship is available to people who want to physically and actively live in the Principality of the Northern Forests. They have a medieval house 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. The application is 11 pages long. We take applications for citizenship very serious. Filling out an application and sending it in does not guarantee resident citizenship.
