NottaLotta Acres is the name of a micronation located in Kansas, spanning an area of 10 acres square, which declared its sovereignty on August 1, 2009. NottaLotta Acres fulfills all of the four requirements of the Montevideo Convention for declarative statehood. Notable features of the land include a six-foot deep pond, several acres of open pasture, and the highest point for miles around, a 100-foot silo.


NottaLotta Acres, being a unitary state, has instituted a Constitutional Oligarchy as its form of government, based on familial ties, and it is officiated by the High Office of Legal Intercession & Cabinet, or "Holi C".  The Holi C is an entity in and of itself, officiating only micronational issues, and has little bearing on the people or land of NottaLotta Acres.  It is, however, almost universally recognized as the government of NottaLotta Acres.  The Holi C made the informal decision in January, 2010, to withdraw from further relations with other micronations, save that of actual, personal contact.

Pope Pompous the Last

The sovereign head of state of NottaLotta Acres is His Popishness Pope Pompous the Last.  His Popishness is advised by the Cabinet.  He is the father-figure of the Oligarchical family of NottaLotta Acres, and is vital for the continuity of NottaLottan sovereignty, hence the suffix, "the Last". This office may be officiated by the Pope's wife, in lieu of his actual decisions, therefore she also bears the same title.

Secretary Secretariat

{C The head of the High Office of Legal Intercession & Cabinet is the Secretary Secretariat, the office of which is currently held by His Excellency Son III.  His Excellency officiates foreign policy and all external interactions for NottaLotta Acres, as well as setting governmental policy under the direction and authority of Pope Pompous the Last.


{C The Chancellor, His Chancellorship Son IV, officiates all court proceedings and presides over all military actions, hence his secondary title of President of the Military, within parameters set by the Secretary Secretariat, and is a Lieutenant General under Pope Pompous.



On August 17, 2006, the oligarchical family purchased ten square acres of a privately owned tract of land in Kansas, and has since settled and declared it sovereign territory. This remains the sole, territorial home of NottaLotta Acres, and is therefore the object of all governmental business.

{C The NottaLottan Constitution grants special diplomacy with the United States and with Kansas, authorizing finances from NottaLottans to be exported to them on an individual level, for whatever amount is asked of them. NottaLottans, both traditionally and as a matter of law, identify themselves as Americans, and conduct themselves so as to be in keeping with U.S. and Kansan laws and customs.

NottaLottan Roundel

NottaLottan Military Roundel

NottaLotta Acres provides its citizenry the protection of a military, the Army, whose stated purpose is, "... for the repelling of invasion and suppression of rebellion." The Army is specifically geared for land-only missions, and it is equipped with surface-to-air and surface-to-surface missile capabilities and technology, as well as general firearms. NottaLottans previously kept a navy, but it was abolished due to inactivity.

NLA Army Flag

NottaLottan Army Flag

The NottaLottan Army is comprised of infantry, artillery, and armored vehicles; with three personnel permanently holding these positions, it is the main defense force of the nation. Armed with lethal, less than lethal, and non-lethal weaponry, training exercises and actual deployment require the Army to be constantly standing, with the Chancellor presiding.

While many of the details about the NLA Army are considered classified, it has been publicly stated that the NLA Army will accept ammunition mostly in .177 caliber, as well as shotgun ammunition in 12, 20, and 410 gauges.

Recent deployment has mainly consisted of lethal force against predator infestations, a veritable plague to NottaLotta Acres.
