Foundland, officially known as the Social Democratic Republic of Foundland, was a country with multiple prefectures around Europe, with the main one located in Germany. As of March 2022, Foundland had 46 citizens. The Foundland capital, which shared the same name as the country, was located at 49.38048635850489, 6.6577334334574285. There were also two other prefectures: Danubia, located in the Balkan region of Europe between Serbia and Croatia, and the German Foundland Prefecture, located at the Danube in Bogen, Germany. The German Foundland Prefecture was administered by Joel Eisenreich of the Kingdom of Bavaria.
The prefecture of Danubia was referred to as "Zeleni Otok" by the locals. The entire area was a swamp situated on a floodplain, and the houses already present on Zeleni Otok suffered from seasonal floods. The Foundland government had a plan to protect the planned buildings in response to this issue.
The Foundland Capital had been the legal property of the president's family for many years and was located on a river called the Nied.
Foundland had no economy, but there were plans to make Foundland a leading power in the IT sector. The Foundlandian constitution ensured social security, universal healthcare, free education, and freedom of speech for all citizens living on Foundlandian territory.
On 19 December 2022, Johannes M. Toome held a vote to determine the future of Foundland. With two votes, it was decided that Foundland should be dissolved.
