The "Kingdom of Catan" was a fradulent micronation ostensibly based near Leeds in the United Kingdom.

Founded by a King James I, there is no evidence - despite his claims to the contrary - that anybody else was ever involved in Catan.

The entity became well-known after refusing to pay for an order of flags and falsely claiming that one of its "ministers" (in reality a fake social media profile created by James I with stock images) was killed in the Manchester 2017 terrorist attack.

One of the individuals claimed by James I to be the country's "Prime Minister", when contacted, informed enquirers that he had never heard of Catan and that James had stolen his name and image from social media.
