The Free State of Bomern, (Bomerish De Friuwe Rikjelan Bomaen, Meckelish Frije Riksland Bomern) is a republic formerly associated with the kingdom of Meckeln-Bomern. The vast majority of the population of the country are speakers of Bomerish (with Meckelish as a second language) who consider themselves part of that former ethnic minority in Meckeln-Bomern, and Bomerish is the official language. The capital and largest city in the republic is Oufsham.

Geographically the country is traditionally divided into six regions or jende: Oamtlan, Föabomaen, Atjabomaen, Doakwout, Moanjelan and Soabhöjde.

Politically the republic is divided into 32 districts or juwe and a capital district.

After long, drawn out negotiations during the first six months of 312 between HRH Lennart IV of Meckeln-Bomern with a group of his most trusted advisors and a group of high-ranking leaders of Bomerian Committee of Autonomy fronted by its chairman Pita Broadt, the two sides have finally found common ground and signed a document which was seen as the first step towards the complete autonomy of the region. Following the signing of the document, previously referred to, the Bomerian culture and language will not only be recognised in the Riksland, but the Bomerish language will be ratified as the primary official language of the region.
Furthermore, domestic affairs was to be handled by the newly established Bomerian Regional Council, which now, under then name Council of the Bomerian Republic, has full power of legislation. It is also established that a law made in the parliament of Meckeln-Flamlandt will no longer be valid in Bomern. Foreign affairs will from now on (213) be handled by the Bomerian government in Oufsham.
Ej houw ja i mi boats ow hjoat so onutsedjen lef

I hold you so inexpressibly dear in my heart
My fatherland you will always remain the wonderland of my dreams
My eyes are sensitive to your living green
The greenness of your forests
The greenness of your grass
The greenness of your waving banner
My ears are sensitive to your birds in the sky
To the mild rain of spring tapping on my window
My skin is sensitive to your warming sun
your ancient hills
your fertile soil
Where else in the world could I feel so at home
as right here in the greenness of Bomern
