New Swabia (pronounced "New SWAY-bee-a") is a proposed state belonging to the Federated States of Antarctica. It consists of an enclave on a rock outcropping in the coastal mountain range of Queen Maud Land. The name "New Swabia" comes from the name of a proposed German Antarctic claim and is used in favor of "Queen Maud Land" to prevent confusion with the name of the Norwegian territorial claim in the same geographic area. Since any unoccupied area south of the 60th parallel is a potential site for future Federation settlements, all potential future enclaves located between 37.5° West and 37.5° East longitude and north of 82.5° South latitude would be part of the state.

Shackleton is the only currently proposed settlement in New Swabia.

Other micronations

The only micronation active in the New Swabia region besides the Federated States is Keep Watch, an ally of the Federation.
