"We, Who Dared"
This page describes the workings of the Principality of Islandia, a micronation experiment within the greater IBG project. The people described below are working on behalf of IBG, not just for the ‘micronation’ itself but for the business that is behind it as well.
Upper House / IBG Inc. board
In charge of the day to day dealings of and running of the legal entity.
Head of State / Chairman of the Board
His Royal Excellency Prince Regent Marshall 1st of Islandia
Born in New York City, Marshall Mayer travelled extensively before arriving at Islandia. He studied history and languages, worked for almost a decade in global commerce, and founded a humanitarian company providing disaster relief in the Philippines. Islandia is the sixth country that Marshall has called home.
Lower House / Shareholders
The current paid-up members and investors in the legal entity.
The provisional Head of Government was voted for by paid-up shareholders and runs a committee of shareholder volunteers. Each an expert in their field, these volunteers are committed to the success and profitability of the venture.
The Right Honourable Prime Minister Jodie Hill
Democratically elected leader of Islandia’s government, Prime Minister Jodie Hill has a background in business and law. Born in Lancashire, England, a decade of entrepreneurship led her to a partnership in a London-based commercial and legal advisory firm. Now as Prime Minister of Islandia, Jodie is able to apply extensive professional experience to a position that embraces her passion for travel, democracy and running successful businesses.
Minister of State Affairs
As coordinator of state affairs, culture, and exaltation, Islandia’s Minister Plenipotentiary Alon Winnie plays a leading role in nurturing the nation’s character. Alon, formerly of the United States, is based in Jakarta, Indonesia, and through years of travel and study has developed a passionate interest in global cultures.
“I have always been disturbed that nationality, an accident of birth, controls and limits the opportunities of so many. I’m excited to explore the concepts of democracy and nationality as we build this Principality of Islandia.”
Minister of Foreign Affairs
Islandia takes a non-partisan approach to global politics, treating all other nations on this planet as friends and neighbours. Minister of Foreign Affairs Marko Moudrak has visited many of these neighbours firsthand, through his professional work in geological engineering, and more recently, as a tour guide and photographer. In his role as Minister, Marko Moudrak will seek to forge enduring links while maintaining Islandia’s relationships overseas.
Arriving at this project by way of a private practice in London, Attorney General Estelle Sadler is a qualified solicitor with many years of experience offering legal advice and litigation services. She specialises in large international disputes, and is able to call upon a wealth of experience as she advises on a wide range of legal matters for Islandia.
Minister of Information
Richard Morten was born in Oxford, England, and studied music and psychology before undertaking a PhD focussed on the phenomenon of ‘dark tourism.’ As Minister of Information for the Principality of Islandia, his duties are those of archivist, scribe, and head of media liaisons.
Minister of Business and Commerce
The development of Islandia’s economy will be a key priority to ensure Islandia is profitable. As Minister of Business and Commerce, Ian Chow provides expert guidance and a strategic approach which has been honed over the course of a career working in sustainable development roles for the UN Association and other major organisations.
Minister of Technology and Communication
As a nation of the digital age, Islandia places great significance on the role of technology and communications. Minister David Pascoe, a New Zealander by birth, has specialised for a decade in the implementation of information systems. Now he applies those same skills to ensuring that Islandia’s technological offerings are the very best they can be.
Minister of Culture
Born and raised in the English countryside, George spent most of his adult life working in journalism. Now serving as Minister of Culture for the Principality of Islandia, he is responsible for nurturing our people’s creativity and diversity; so that our nation might better express the dream that inspired its creation.
Islandia’s citizens are comprised of its investors, customers, and supporters from around the globe. Citizenship is a great way to support the project, get the insider deals as we begin offering the island for rent (and other great products!), and stay on top of everything else we’re up to! Get citizenship for yourself or for a friend or loved one as a gift!
