Today marks the day when the Dynamo Dukedom has officially declared sovereignty over the Continental Kingdom of Mintakous. After many days of negotiation the Kingdom of Mintakous agreed to divest itself of the entire Mintakian Peninsula; including the Isles of Las Minas. The Kingdom of Mintakous has left the peninsula "as is" and has stipulated the following conditions to the Dynamo Dukedom:
-The Mintakous Royal Military can traverse the peninsula
-The Dynamo Dukedom will connect to the Kingdom of Mintakous by road and rail in the next twenty years
-The Dynamo Dukedom will allow free trade with the Kingdom of Mintakous
At this time, the majority of the land now ruled by the Dynamo Dukedom is made up of small farms, forested land, large mountains, and a network of small rivers and lakes which criss-cross the peninsula. The peninsula is under developed with very few roads and rail links. The Dynamo Dukedom will work to develop this new sovereign state, and allow its residents, commerce, and industry to flourish.
This journal will allow the dukedom to keep its citizens, and potential citizens, informed on what is going on.
