The 2014 Ariana Coup d'etat (Filipino: Kudeta sa Ariana 2014) occurred in 16 September 2014 after Ariana citizens disappointed with Ariana leader's decree to dissolve Ariana formed the Lequia Revolutionary Forces to rebel against the regime of the Chairperson Extraordinary.

On 20:00 (GMT+8), at the height of the coup d'etat, two former Ariana government officials Timothy Laranang and Eugenio de Namayan managed to take over Ariana's Facebook page to announce the victory of the revolution. Nearby Philippine micronations including Ariana's regional opponent Daikoku (which started an isolationist policy against Ariana on May 2014) congratulated the Lequia Revolutionary Forces. On September 17, although too late, the Chairperson regained control of the official Facebook page and expelled Laranang and Eugenio from its administration.

The coup d'etat managed to temporarily restore informal communications between the once-warring Philippine micronations of Kaleido and Daikoku which ultimately led to the 22 September Philippine Micronational Meetup.
