Babou Chkaya, (born 1 August 1998) is a micronationalist and an Occitanian politician, a micronation that was founded by him in June 2015.

His presidency has been marked by socialist beginnings and then by a Social liberalism shift, the creation of a multi-ethnic and tolerant culture in Occitania, as well as a territorial expansion and the establishment of direct democracy. After health problems and inactivity of his successors which led to the fall of the Popular Union regime, he recreated a political structure with some local leaders under the name of the Union of Nova-Occitania.

Babou Chkaya was born on 1 August 1998, in Andorra. His mother has Ukrainian origins (his great grandfather took refuge in France during the Russian Civil War). He grew up in Toulouse, France. He lives in Sderot, Israel during two years, because his father was working in a UN program in Gaza. Babou was formed in the Toulouse 1 University Capitole.

He speaks French, Occitan, Spanish, Catalan, and Afrikaans. He has been noted for his sub-standard level of Engish, which has generate several diplomatical incidents and misunderstandings.
