Republic of Koss (Nemkhavia)

The Republic of Koss (Portuguese: Republica de Koss) was a micronation founded on April 25, 2011, by the founding father Lucas Campos. On June 5, 2011 the Republic of Koss became the first micronation to ever join the Nemkhav Federation.


The Republic of Koss was founded as a direct successor of the Republic of Smint, but it soon realized that just as its predecessor it could not survive alone. In order to prevent inactivity to take over the nation, the President of the Republic, Lucas Campos decided, on April 27, to resign in favor of Isabela Mello who kindly appointed her precessedor to the position of the Secretary of State. As the Republic could not sustain itself, it joined Nemkhavia on June 5.
