19 imagesThe Kingdom of Überstadt is led by nineteen-year-old King Adam I, (Adam Oberstadt). The Barony of Rosewood -- the micronation's capitol and the Oberstadt family home -- is nestled in the Seattle suburb of Mountlake Terrace, Wash. Überstadt also claims territory of nearby Edmount Island on Lake Ballinger -- called The Barony of Ballinger and "considered the spiritual homeland of the nation." Both baronies reside within the Duchy of Edmount which "is situated entirely within the boundaries of the city of Mountlake Terrace, Washington," according to the Überstadt website. Überstadt was founded by King Adam I and his high school friends March 6, 2010, and was governed by judges as a kritarchy. Before taking the crown, Adam was Überstadt's chief judge. After graduation, many of the Überstadti moved away to college and Überstadt's populace shrank. Activities would shift from the high school to Rosewood, and the governing style morphed to a unitary constitutional monarchy. According to the micronation's website Überstadt is a sovereign state "guided by the principles of direct democracy, socialist economics, and environmentalism."
