: : Well, Ladonia is a country, which does not depend on being recognized by other states (although the question has been up in the Parliament). Ladonia is both a Republic and a Monarchy - thus Remony. The country is situated in the southern part of Sweden, a region called Skåne, so it is very much physical, unlike many other "internet" countries. Internet is a means of administration, and you can find much information about Ladonia on Ladonia's official internet site.
: : Ladonia publishes its own newspaper and by reading older issues you can learn much about happenings in the country. Becoming a citizen is also very easy - just send an application form via internet, and, yes, you can assume a noble title.
: : But, once again, the best way to learn much about Ladonia is to study its official pages...
: : With best regards,
: : Nemo.
: : A Speaker of the 1st Chamber of the Ladonian Parliament, and
: : Head of the Office of Nothingness.
: Thank you for your help Nemo...if I can, I'd like to ask a few more specific questions. What duties pertain to a Minister of a Department? I was thinking that I could be Minister of American Affairs since I am an American citizen. I would do some work to get Ladonia recognized by the USA even though we don't really need it, but hey, it would be a help I'm sure! Also, is it ok that I am young? I hope to get another post from my helpful and kind countrymen.
Ministers do pretty much what they wish to do, or at least that is my impression. I am not a part of the Cabinet, but the rumours about what the Cabinet does go far and wide...
I don't think that the Ministry of American Affairs will do. Not because it is a bad idea, but because Ladonia already has a Foriegn Service run by John Parman (also an American) and an Emassy in America headed by Betsy Thaggard. (Don't panic if the names are unfamiliar - you'll get to know quite a lot of people after a while.) However, with your intentions, you can become a co-worker in Ladonian Foriegn Service and do much good there. (I remember John Parman (firstname.lastname@example.org) wanted more people to take part in it.)
I would also recommend you to take a look at Ladonia's Administration with a list of ministies, or to investigate a quick and chaotic reference to Ladonian resources. Another way to participate in Ladonia's life is to become a Member of Ladonian Parliament. (I just hope to see more life in this institution...)
Young or old - plays no role! There was someone who accused Ladonia of being a childplay. Well, we can be both young, pretending to be grown-ups, and grown-ups, pretending to be young, or neither of those. But that does not matter as long as you know what you want for yourself, and how you can contribute to the community.
