Republic of Kekistan
The Republic of Kekistan is a fictional country invented by users on 4chan’s /pol/ board as the tongue-in-cheek ethnic origin of “shitposters” known as “Kekistanis” who worship the ancient Egyptian diety Kek. In late January 2017, Kekistan began widely circulating on Twitter following its promotion by YouTuber Sargon of Akkad.

On 4chan, the name “Kekistan” has been suggested for various imaginary geographic locations many times since as early as December 2015, when a flag with the filename “kekistan.jpg” was submitted to the /int/ (international) board. On December 14th, 2016, a thread regarding buying an island in the Caribbean was submitted to /pol/, to which several users suggested the land be named “Kekistan”.
On January 30th, 2017, YouTuber Sargon_of_Akkad tweeted that “shitposters meet the British govs criteria of an ethnicity,” claiming he would register the group on the British census (shown below, left). After asking followers what the ethnicity should be named, he settled on “Kekistani,” describing the fictional group as a “disparate and dispossessed people” (shown below, right).
That day, the Republic of Kekistan Twitter feed was launched, declaring itself “the official Twitter account of the Kekistani Republic.” Within 48 hours, the feed gained over 5,000 followers. Meanwhile, the site Kekistan.com was launched, including a “Kek manifesto”. Meanwhile, other Twitter users began tweeting the hashtag #FreeKekistan along with jokes denouncing normies and professing their pride in shitposting.
The following day, YouTuber The New Memedia uploaded the song “Shadilay” under the titled “The National Anthem of Kekistan”. The video was subsequently removed. Meanwhile, the /r/kekistan subreddit was launched, with the description “There is only one God (Kek) and Pepe is his prophet.” On February 1st, a page for “Kekistan” was created on Encyclopedia Dramatica.
On September 12th, 2017, the official Bungie Twitter feed announced they would be removing a piece of gauntlet armor in the game Destiny 2 for sharing “elements with a hate symbol.”,
That day, Redditor TheLittleMoa submitted a post about the tweet to /r/DestinyTheGame, where Redditor xxbiohazrdxx speculated that the Road Complex AA1 legendary gauntlets were removed for containing imagery resembling the Kekistani flag.
In the comments section of the post, many Redditors mocked Bungie for thinking the flag was a symbol of hate. That day, Polygon and Kotaku published articles calling the Kekistan flag an “alt-right” and “white nationalist” symbol.
In kekistan's history, Normies and Liberals had invaded kekistan and were at the point of taking kekstantinople, Only to be save by Donald Trump And Nigel Farrage.
In real life they have been in many battles with Antifa in towns like Berkeley California and Boston.
In each attempt they succeeded to hold back the Liberals against over wealming odds even to having their main general arrested during the Third battle of Berkeley At the Free speech rally. Kekistan liberated the town shortly afterwards.
