Meropis, officially The Provincial Colony of Meropis formally Republic of Meropis, was a defunct micronation founded in New Zealand, Australasia in 24 September 2010. Centered at capital Hades, it is a Democratic Presidential Republic characterized by popular sovereignty, from political pluralism and the recognition of the rights of freedom and equality. Meropis rejects war as an act of aggression. Meropis recognizes and guarantees the inviolable rights of man, as an individual and in social groups where he expresses his personality, and requires the fulfillment of the mandatory duties of political solidarity, economic and social development. Meropis promotes the development of culture and scientific and technical research.
The Republic of Meropis was founded on September 24, 2010 by Stuart. Stuart has had many attempts at making a micronation, but has struggled. He has finally settled on Meropis, which will be his nation, his people's nation, and the best nation in the world. His previous failed attempt at a micronation was New Greenland. Hades became the capital of Meropis on the same day.
The 2 February 2010, the president has created a special committee and founded the project "rebirth" that tends to modernize and develop the Micronation. Indeed in recent years, Micronation had been left behind. In addition the Committee has created the Ministry for Development and Propaganda with the aim of developing Micronation.
Rather than have the micronation go to waste, Stuart has had talks with the Principality of Waydina, offering his former micronation to the principality and later West Bir Tawil which it has know become.
