Heimatia, officially the Heimatian Colonial Empire, is a North American micronation founded by Karl Frederick (born December 11, 2003) and Mark Terrace in the capital city of Stuhlburg near Dripping Springs, Texas. The Heimatian Colonial Empire has claimed itself a nation, but is not recognized (with the exception of micronational governments) by any national government nor by the United Nations.
The name 'Heimatia' originates from the German word 'Heimat", which means 'Homeland'.
Republic of Heimatia
The Republic of Heimatia was founded on 25 October 2018 together by Karl Frederick and Mark Terrace, who wanted to explore the concept of micronationalism and geopolitics. Heimatia was founded more as a joke nation, having its declaration of independence involving declaring independence from a mythical communist dinosaur nation known as Dinosauria.
The Republic of Heimatia was a one-party state, ruled by the Frederickist Party of Heimatia under President Karl Frederick, who served as the party's chairman.
First Heimatian Colonial Empire
On 22 February 2018, the Republic of Heimatia annexed the Constituent Colony of Guckonia, hence establishing the Heimatian Colonial Empire. Karl Frederick gained the new title of Imperial President, and the Heimatian Colonial Empire entered a new age of expansionism and imperialism.
The first Heimatian Colonial Empire existed until 30 June 2019 when Imperial President Karl Frederick stepped down from power, thus beginning an age known as the Age of Chaos.

A new constitution was written, known as the Basic Law, which outlined the basic government structure of the new government. On 7 January 2020, Karl Frederick was elected to serve as the Supreme Chancellor of the Heimatian Colonial Empire.
