The official Forvik website is not functioning due to a long term problem. During its redesign the software writer was unable to finish the job, so we are left with a site which is informational only. Please do not try to sign up there because it will not work. The website is here and you can join below on this page.

Since its inception, the island of Forvik (which is part of Shetland) was intended to demonstrate what Shetland as a whole could do if it just asserted already existing powers. It was Shetland in microcosm. The purpose was to challenge the Sottish and UK 'authorities' to find out how they derive their power here.

The Sovereign State of Forvik has an international population and is largely a virtual enitty with just a small physical base. Forvik itself is about 2.5 acres (1 hectare).

More recently the focus has shifted to the Shetland mainland and the pace is hotting up. The Sovereign Nation of Shetland was formed ( and we believe we are now reaching the end of a 10 year protracted engagedment with the courts to finally get an answer.

As the pressure gets greater, the reaction by the police and courts gets more extreme. Stuart Hill has been imprisoned twice, been convicted and sentenced to prison without trial and suffered other abuses at the hands of the Scottish 'justice' system. The establishment cannot admit he is right because the implications are huge - Think North Sea oil, so-called EU fisheries, even membership of the EU.

At the first hearing on jurisdiction (in 2011), he went into court with a 72 page argument and 120 supporting documents - and was slaugtered. In the latest case it is a 1-page argument and 7 supporting documents. All the court can do so far is dodge the issue by not allowing the question to be asked in open court, but, if the judge claims the power to try, sentence and convict him, Stuart has the fundamenatl right to know how he gets that power. How exactly is Shetland (and Orkney) part of Scotland or the UK?
