The Province of Lacuterra is the newest and second smallest province of the Micronational Empire of Thebes. It is located in Lake Gaston.


Lacuterra was named by James I on 5 May 2020. Lacuterra is derived from the Latin words meaning "Lake Land".


Lacuterra's existance was first noticed by Cayden Ludlow in the early days of Thebes. It was confused with Cadmea a great number of times. On the West Gaston Expedition of 2020, Charles Miller noticed the island, and James I decided to annex it. It was a territory for several hours before James I held a vote and made it a province on 5 May 2020. Around this time, the Floods of 2020 reached their peak, and Lacuterra was partly underwater. Lacuterra was governorless until 7 June 2020, when James I appointed Jay Carducci as the governor.


Lacuterra, like most Theban provinces, is governed by a governor appointed by the king.

Geography and climate

Lacuterra as seen from a satellite.

Lacuterra consists of a single island, Lacuterra Island. Lacuterra is about 50 feet off the coast of the United States, and 250 feet away from Laiusa, the nearest Theban province. Lacuterra is very lowlying, and prone to flooding, as it did during the Floods of 2020.
