The Republic of Pyeonghwaloun (Korean :평화로운 공화국) refers to two short-lived incarnations of two micronations the same name. One is the puppet state of St. John (also known with the designation of 1st Republic of Pyeonghwaloun) which was founded in October 2014 and joined Shima on the next month, while the second one is an independent micronation (also known with the designation of 2nd Republic of Pyeonghwaloun) founded on December 2014 and dissolved three months later.
The word Pyeonghwaloun were ctaken from Korean word "평화로운" (transliaterated as pyeonghwaloun), which means "peaceful".
In 2014, several months before the founding of the Pyeonghwaloun, a "micronation" called the Kingdom of Persia was established in the region that later became Pyeonghwaloun. The kingdom, however, lasted for about one day.
The Republic of Pyeonghwaloun was founded as the puppet state of St.John on 23 October 2014. However, the nation fell inactive until its disestablishment in 6 November 2014. Pyeonghwaloun later joined with Shima.
After the dissolution of Shima on 20 December 2014, Pyeonghwaloun were re-established as an independent nation from St. John, although William T., the Chairman of St. John at the time, ruled as the President of Pyeonghwaloun. Three months late after Pyeonghwaloun were re-established, Pyeonghwaloun fell into inactivity and dissolved on 7 April 2015.
On 22 July 2015, the Empire of Yoko claimed the former region of Pyeonghwaloun as the Colony of Koto.
