  • Nunaat means lands (plural from nuna-land)

So, the name in of the country means lands of seagull people.

History

Prehistory

It's unknown when was Naajaland firstly inhabited, but it's likely that Naajaland was habited by tribal cultures of Inuits, about 4000 years BC. One of the oldest settlements is Arrikorsuaq, where are alot of archeologic finds of prehistoric cultures.

In about year 2000 BC, population of Naajaland habited almost all of the coast. People divided into Arrikorsuaq, Malamoq and Pissuseq cultures. Most of the warm coast was occupied by Arrikorsuaq culture, so Malamoq and Pissuseq cultures must have moved into cold places in Naajaland. They are ancestors of all today's Naajaland's population.

History

Naajaland was first found by Gøjkalan and his people, when they were sailing to the south in 894. Nobody knew about it. He called Naajaland by himself, Gøjkalanland. He lived in a settlement called Øken (now Inuarfik). After a year, in 895, Gøjlakan was killed by Inuit people, together with his people.

Modern Naajaland was found almost thousand years later, in 1891, after some people from new country Neo Delta made a mistake and travelled to the far south. They landed at the northermost islands of Naajaland, Annisoq, Saarullik and Akku. They found out these islands were not inhabited, so they founded some settlements, called Canün (today's Kissaviarsalik), Ginarge (today's Nattoralik) and Vaanderseiv (today's Qimmoq). These places were colonised and made three of the most civilized places in Naajaland. Later, people decided to leave three towns on the north and create their own settlements. That made up small settlements Akku and Jogo (today's Tunnujortoq) were created.

Colonisers later found out, that southeastern coast of Saarullik island was inhabited. There were settlements Inunnguit and Saarullik. They thought that there are more habited places in the south more, so they travelled more to the south. They found a massive inhabited peninsula, now called Avannareqertaasarsuaq. They divided into two parts, one went to the west, and they found a city, called Okeniit (today's Inuarfik). Other went to the east and found a peninsula with positive habitable conditions. They started to create settlements on the peninsula and it was called Neo Ivu (now Ivitaaq).

In the future, world got news about the newly found territory. As it was thought it was inhabited, it was considered as a part of Southern Islands. When it was found it is inhabited, Neo Delta made a wish to have Naajaland as it's colony, and the result was positive. Naajaland became a part of Neo Delta in 1916.

In 1952, Neo Delta created an air base in the extreme south, used for eventual war conflicts, and founded a town called Sagwo (today's Palermiut). Today, Sagwo Air Base and settlement Saffinuffik are still under Neo Delta's controll.

In 1996, Neo Delta became a part of SWAEA. Naajaland didn't want to be a part of this alliance, because they were not enough economic feases to be a part, but it must, because it wasn't an independent country. Extreme protests and bearings for indepence started in Naajaland. Year later, Naajaland gained autonomity, but it still must have been a part of SWAEA, because it still wasn't an independent country. Naajaland got independence in 14th December 2013, because it's independency was appreciated by Neo Delta and all of the world's countries. After gaining independence, Naajaland left SWAEA and every alliances Neo Delta was a part of.

When Naajaland gained indepence, there were three candidates for president. Kamilla Paleritooq was elected as a president by 63,9 % of Naajalandic people, as she was the main critic of Naajaland joining SWAEA and main protagonist of Naajaland's indepence. Second in the elections was Apileq Nutaaq, who gained 35,4 % of votes and got similar opinions as Kamilla Paleritooq. Qaamasunnguaq Aritiq, who was he main protagonist of Naajaland joining SWAEA after Naajaland's indepence, got only 0,7 % of votes. In elections, which happened in 19-22nd November 2018, new president Aqipi Imaneq was elected as a new president and Talissaq Eqaluk as a new prime minister.
