Kumano, officially the Kumano Jiritsu Nation in English and Kumano Jiritsu Kokka, (熊野自立国家) in Japanese, is a micronation that was created by Hatsu Ryuho in the summer of 2013. Kumano is a independent, agrarian and democratic society founded on the principles of life, liberty and cooperation. Kumano was the third micronation that was created by Hatsu Ryuho. It's predecessors were Aspinburgh (2009–2011) and Tatsumiya (2011–2013). Hatsu Ryuho privately told family and friends involved in micronationalism that, if Kumano went the route of the past two micronations and dissolved after two years, it would be the last micronation he founded. As of 2016 Kumano remains active.
