Porto Claro is the first micronation founded in Latin America, created in September 25 of 1992 by Pedro Aguiar. Founded as a Kingdom, Porto Claro became a republic in 1998, after a revolution which resulted in the expulsion of Aguiar from the nation. It claims that every lusophone micronation is a direct or indirect product of the Republic.

Porto Claro was founded in 1992, but only presenced itself in the internet in 1996. The current President of the Republic is André Szytko. Since 1992, Porto Claro has seen over 600 overseas citizens.
