  1. Roman Catholicism is the official religion of Melite, and is subservient to the Roman Catholic (macronational) Archdiocese of Malta, so as to prevent schism and stay in full communion with the Holy See/Vatican.

Melite (mel-ee'-tay) , officially the Second Democratic Christian Republic of Melite (abbreviated as 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 (now Leoni District). The Capital City is now Dominica, in the Maltese town of Rabat. 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 its 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.

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 comes from the Ancient Greek "Μελίτη", also meaning calm or honey sweet.

Population

The nation started in a Saint Elias' College School secondary class of 21 people, all on the demographic of 12 to 13 years at the time.

Decline

In 2020, the population went down by 1, as the nation expelled a student who showed inappropriate conduct and constant breach of the consensual rules declared between the class peers. A year after in 2021, the Population tumbled down to 1, as the scholastic year ended, and all students left the nation, leaving Matthew P. P. Tonna, who would then become the President of Melite, as the only citizen.

Resurgence

On 4 October 2021, 3 citizens re-joined the Republic. As of 2021, the Republic has 14 citizens in the country.

Intermicronational Recognition

Currently, the D.C.R. is recognized by, 0 Sovereign States, and 28 Micronations.
