William Ranger, officially the Kingdom of William Ranger (Indonesian: Kerajaan William Ranger), was a micronation in Indonesia from 30 March 2012 to 2 April 2013. It is considered as the de jure continuation of the Federal Republic of Santos. William Ranger is an absolute monarchy with slight republican influence. United Mutiara is the capital city and seat of government of William Ranger. The territory of William Ranger consists of three landlocked area located in Java Island and two fictional territories.
In early 2013, the government of William Ranger began to be inactive and finally a few months later, King William announced the dissolution of William Ranger. The micronation was reformed as New Santos, then again became the Republic of St. John.
William Ranger was originally a micronation named Santos. Santos was founded in June 2011 by William Timothy. Several months later, Santos was embargoed by Los Bay Petros and Indokistan. This resulted in the Santos government being inactive.
On 30 March 2012, William Timothy, the former President of Santos announced that Santos was officially replaced by a kingdom named William Ranger. William also declared himself the King of the new kingdom. The kingdom chose a city in the former part of the 5A called M1 (which later became United Mutiara) as the capital of William Ranger. The kingdom also claims two fictitious regions named Aurelia and Armilandia (formerly named Williamland).
In early 2013, the government of William Ranger started to become inactive. King William, who lost interest to reign as a King declared disestablishment of the Kingdom on 2 April 2013, three days after the first anniversary of William Ranger establishment. After a period of interregnum, William Ranger replaced by a micronation named New Santos.
