The Republic of Nasatroe (Spanish: República de Nasatroe), commonly known as Nasatroe, (pronounced: Na-sa-tro), is a territorial micronation, comprising of parts of the northern half of the State of Georgia, within the United States of America.

The current Constitution of the Republic of Nasatroe was signed on July 24, 2011. The Republic of Nasatroe is generally thought of as being a conservative micronation.
Nasatroe is considered a minor player within the MicroWiki community. This is due to political instability and upheaval. The Republic of Nasatroe has also been plagued by periods of limited activity within the intermicronational community. The Republic of Nasatroe has a population of 8, with a majority of that number being active within the government, economy, or culture of the micronation. The Republic of Nasatroe is one of the older members of the MicroWiki community. The current president, Joseph Baker discovered the MicroWiki in December 2009, during the New European Civil War. Nasatroe did not make itself known on the wiki until its application to the Organisation of Active Micronations in May 2010.
The Republic of Nasatroe has an active domestic policy which it caries out through the Ministry of Domestic Policy and the Presidency. The President is involved in many government activities within the Republic of Nasatroe including both foreign and domestic policy. The seat of government is the Victoria Capital District. The Republic of Nasatroe is classified as a member of the Sixth World in the Bloodsmythe-Tallini System of Classification. Nasatroe has a president as head of state and head of government. The President is currently Joseph Baker and the Vice-President is Darius Longstreet.
The name Nasatroe originates from the mind of Joseph Baker, at the age of six. Joseph Baker was watching a History Channel episode on Troy, and then he watched an episode on NASA. He then decided to create his own micronation, which was named Nasatroe. This micronation lacked seriousness and was mostly a micronation made out of lego and toys. The micronation was revived every so often throughout the years between this naming and the republic's foundation in 2008. Joseph Baker decided to use the name he had already created six years before when he founded the Republic of Nasatroe on September 9, 2008.
The first civilization that inhabited the area that the Republic of Nasatroe is found in today, were the moundbuilders. These American Indians built several large mounds across Georgia, the most famous being the Etowah Mounds. The culture of these American Indians was very complex and was formed over several generations. When the New World was discovered and the Spaniards began colonizing North America, the province of Guale was formed with the establishment of a mission on St. Catherines Island. This province was taken over by the British with the establishment of the colony of South Carolina. Guale became a disputed region between both sides. The Charter of 1733 established the colony of Georgia. The War of Jenkins Ear solidified British rule in the region. Up until this point, Georgia had been a trustee colony. After the Charter of 1733 expired, it became a Royal Colony.
Georgia became an agricultural-based colony with a large dependency on the British. The colony was not present at the first Contintental Convention, and barely present at the second. Some of the other colonies thought that Georgia would not revolt against British rule. Georgia became part of the United States of America in 1776 and fought the British till the Treaty of Paris in 1783. Few engagements took place within Georgia. The two largest battles were the Siege of Savannah and the Battle of Kettle Creek. Georgia was a small state within the United States of America and had little say at the Constitutional Convention.
Life in Georgia was stable until the election of 1860, when the Confederate States of America was declared independent of the United States of America. Georgia was an industrial powerhouse for the South and was a major target for the Union forces. Georgia rejoined the Union in 1870 after five years of off and on military rule.
The Empire of Nasatroe was founded sometime in 2002 by Joseph Baker. This small empire was more of a joke than a micronation. The Republic of Nasatroe was founded on September 9, 2008. The Republic of Nasatroe went through several different types of states, at one point being a republic within the Federated Republics of A1.
On July 13, 2011, the Kingdome of Mufasa declared the then inactive Republic of Nasatroe a Royal County and appointed Count Leopold I as Count of the Royal County of Nasatroe. Under his mandate, many residents of Nasatroe went without necessary basic government functions such as keeping the peace, and failed to uphold the basic human rights of Nasatraians. He exiled leaders such as Darius Longstreet on his first day in office and Joseph Baker on July 16, 2011.
On July 23, 2011, Joseph Baker returned to Victoria and quickly formed the Nasatraian Liberation Movement which took the Royal Palace and exiled Count Leopold I. Joseph Baker established the Republic of Nasatroe and declared the Military Tribunal of the Republic of Nasatroe as the temporary government of the Republic of Nasatroe. On July 24, 2011, several formerly exiled members of the Republic of Nasatroe including Darius Longstreet, Victoria Silver, and Cocoa Jones returned to the Republic of Nasatroe.. On that same day, the Constitution of the Republic of Nasatroe was signed. Elections were held for the House of Assembly on July 25, 2011, and on July 26, Joseph Baker took the office of President and Darius Longstreet took the office of Vice-President.
