Neuborrnia-Merientalia, officially known as the Federal Republic of Neuborrnia-Merientalia (Indonesian: Republik Federal Neuborrnia-Merientalia), is an Indonesian micronation located in the Stradan Sector. It was founded in 2018 as the United Indonesian States of Sapu Lidi and was established in its current form in 2020 as a successor to the Republic of Pejaten.
The Neuborrnian government is a federal republic consisting of the executive and the judicial. It is also a direct democracy, which serves as a replacement to the legislative branch.
The Name Neuborrnia-Merientalia comes from proposed names from two stradan politicians who had proposed a name for their new micronational project.
Neuborrnia, proposed by Aaron Penyami, based on the two words 'Neu' meaning new in German and 'børr' meaning born in High Stradan. The two words combined Neubørr meaning new-born suggests the idea of Neuborrnia-Merientalia being a newborn and 'the new face of Pejaten'.
Merientalia, proposed by Arda Sandya, originating from the word 'meridien-orientalis' meaning southeast in an unidentified langauge.
Neuborrnia-Merientalia was founded as the United Indonesian States of Sapu Lidi in Early 2018. It was originally a micronational project established for a friend group named Sapu Lidi. Later, the United Indonesian States begin distancing themselves from their original purpose and became more independent and focused as a pioneer in Stradan Micronationalism.
The United Southeast Asian States and Pejaten became the leading nation in the Stradan micronationalist movement and has become part of several other micronational communities such as the Micronation Hub , micronationalist community in Instagram, and the Indonesian micronational community.
Entering 2019, activity in Pejaten began declining. One of the leading factors due to citizens graduating from school and some citizens deciding to move their educational center away from Strada. This leads to the inactivity of the Stradan sub-sector of 2019 and leads to the dissolution of Pejaten in 2020. After the dissolution of pejaten, it was promised that a new micronational project which acts as a successor to Pejaten would be established in 2020 soon. Neuborrnia-Merientalia stands as a Stradan micronation established in April 2020.

The activity wore off post 2020 Elections until New Years Eve 2020, when FRNM was restored back into activity.
