Melite, officially the Second Democratic Christian Republic of Melite (shortened to D.C.R.), and formerly the Democratic Christian Republic of 11B (D.C.R. 11B) is a micronation located in Malta. Founded in a secondary school in 2019, it lasted 2 scholastic years in the first capital, Santa Venera. The Capital City is now Rabat, Malta. The primary purpose of the micronation was to unite the class students into one team.. The Students united under one flag and and protected student's rights. As school is now finished, the D.C.R. sets it's sight to seceding from the Republic of Malta, therefore transforming it from a Simulationlist Micronation to a Secessionist Micronation, even though the micronation is still mostly based online.
The name Melite comes from the Latin word for Honey. It was also the name of the Maltese city of Mdina in the Roman Era. The word also comes from the Ancient Greek "Μελίτη", also meaning calm or honey sweet.
By the Founding of the Republic, the Population was of 21 people, all on the demographic of 12-13 years. After one year (2020), the Population went down by 1, as the nation expelled a student who showed inappropriate conduct. In 2021, the Population tumbled down to 1, as the scholastic year ended, and all students left the nation.
On October 4 2021, 3 citizens re-joined the Republic.
As of 2021, the Republic has 14 citizens in the country.
Currently, the D.C.R. is recognized by, 0 Sovereign States, and 28 Micronations.

The Democratic Christian Republic of Melite is made up of two districts, but on 30th October 2021, Julian David Cassar declared an independent YeLand Special Administrative Region. With orders from the President of the Republic, YeLand has been re-incorporated in the D.C.R., but as a municipality with a high degree of autonomy, and Cassar appointed as Mayor. SARs are regulated by Chapter of the Constitution of Melite, including the right for the President to unilaterally dissolve the SAR.
Melite is mostly based online, with only Parliament meeting in a physical place once a month. Therefore, the Government stays in touch with the people using social media, particularly, Twitter and the official Discord server, where most proceedings and governmental updates are given.
The Melitian Times is released online on a Website
YeLand Radio, managed by residents of the YeLand SAR, was recently established as a Voice Channel on the D.C.R. Discord Server, with the Discord Bot MEE6 being used to play the music.
