Recently, the House of Conroy (an aristocracy family based in the Netherlands), had signed into law a Bill (Publicity and Exposure Act 2013) that allowed the exposure of the Athenian Kingdom. The House of Conroy is a noble family with Dutch decent, but had relatively recently (in the 1800s) gained a marquisate in Great Britain.
The House of Conroy was also given reign and authority over other substates and peerages, practically giving them authority over a large number of people around the world. This institution has come to be called the Athenian Kingdom. The Athenian Parliament passed into a law a series of legislation that merged the Conrican Crown in right of the Netherlands, Conrican Crown in right of the United Kingdom, and the Conrican Crown in right of Athenia.
Previously, membership (subjectship) in Athenia was only open to those part of Athenian-governed families, those residing in Athenian Realms, Athenian Overseas Realms and Territories, and Athenian Crown Dependencies. Now, with the passing of the Publicity and Exposure Act, membership is open to all.
Athenia has a fully functioning political system that may be useful (for experience and otherwise) for many wanting a taste of political life. Joining Athenia may mean you may be posted to Parliament, allowing you control over legislation. You may even be put into the Judiciary or a Governmental Department. Of course, you may also be a common subject (no office).
For those interested, please head over to their official website
(newly launched). The website has been designed by the Athenian Department of Information and Technology, of which I am a member of the Creative Design Team. I assure you, it's worth your attention and time.
For those wanting to join immediately, please send an email expressing so in to Lewis Benjamin Caraza (Junior Admissions Officer at the Athenian Kingdom Admissions Council) at firstname.lastname@example.org
