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.[1]

Pre-Christianization / First Republic Flag

Etymology

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.

Population

Decline

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.

Resurgence

On October 4 2021, 3 citizens re-joined the Republic.

As of 2021, the Republic has 14 citizens in the country.
