Immigration into Niflungland is strictly controlled in order to maintain "ethno-cultural stability of the nation", according to law laid forth by Vísir Óðinnsson in his Executive Decree No. 84, ''Blood versus Soil''. In this Decree, the relationship of ethnicity ("blood") is balanced against citizenship ("soil"); absolute restrictions are placed on any persons of foreign ethnicity to those already comprising the majority of Niflungland's citizens, in order that immigrants, in particular refugees, do not disrupt society overall. Keeping with National-Aristocratic social thought, the emphasis on the nature of the "foreign element" is ethnic rather than economic: "it is the foreign element being foreign in itself that creates a situation of impoverishment amongst immigrants, therefore the introduction of immigrants most easily assimilated to the national population ''must'' be maintained as the only introduction of immigrants in Niflungland, since these immigrants are not foreign of blood, but of soil only."<ref>Óðinnsson, Sigurð. ''Blut gegen Boden''/''Blood versus Soil''. ExD No. 84, April 1925. 14.</ref> The enforcement and interpretation of this Decree was left in the hands of the ORW, who received their orders through Óðinnsson's Letter Patent as Grand Master of the Order, titled "''Gesellschaftspflege und Gemeinschaftsordnung''" ("Corporate Hygiene and Communal Order"), which in essence forbids the acceptance of immigrants of other than German or Swedish descent, the sole exception being in the case of [[Norse|Ásatrú]] or other heathen seminarians who have come to Niflung for training.

Niflungan citizenship is a high honour bestowed only on native Niflungans (i.e. those who can trace uninterrupted Niflungan lineage at least two generations back) who upon their 14th year pass the National Examination for Commonwealth Citizenship (NECC). Only Niflungan citizens have a right to a Niflungan passport to leave the country, the right to keep and bear firearms and other weaponry, the ability to participate in government, the ability to be ennobled, and the right to marry and bear children. Since, however, only a slim margin of native Niflungans ever fail the NECC, the majority (indeed, all but .03%) of the population have these rights and abilities. Non-citizens retain the right to live and work within Niflungland so long as they can prove German, Scottish, or Swedish heritage and an absence of connections with socialist, Marxist, anarchist, or other radical groups who are deemed threats to Niflungan social stability.

Niflungan citizenship is unique in that it can be, and frequently is, revoked during the lifetime of the holder for criminal acts against the Commonwealth or support of political movements deemed "anti-social" in accordance with Executive Decree No. 37, "Social Order and Security", issued by Sigurð Angatýrsson. Anti-socials may regain their citizenship after rehabilitation, usually consisting of time served in one of the ORW's re-education monasteries or NAPN-run prisoner camps, depending on what legal offenses the individual had committed as a result of his anti-social politics. All criminals lose Niflungan citizenship for capital crimes; however, the frequency of such criminals not being executed is so low such revocation rarely affects them.

The number of Niflungans abroad is very small, though a number of Scots holding Niflungan citizenship live in Ireland, and due to the large Irish population in Glasgow, it is not unusual for a Glasgow Scot to hold dual citizenship in the two countries. The greatest effect on Niflungland's population has been the recent establishment of the Kingdom of Israel as a Middle Eastern client state, done through the cooperation of the ORW, the Ministry of Faith and Religion, and the Niflungan Zionist Organisation. The move elevated Lord Rabbi Abraham, Baron ben Jechiel to the head of the Jewish community in Niflungland as the Lord Rabbi of the Commonwealth and president of the NZO, and created a special status for Jews in Niflungland as dual-citizens of the Niflungan Commonwealth and the Kingdom of Israel, which presently is ruled by Lord Solomon (Heb. Yechiel Salomo) as Lord Protector and Regent of the Throne of David, while research is being done into the present heir to the throne of David. Projects are underway, supported by ORW donations, to rebuild the famed Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem, but some resistance has been raised by [[Christianity|Christian]] and [[Islam|Mohammedan]] groups.
