The Republic of Luytena, more commonly known as Luytena, is a micronation in Belgium, created on January 10, 2022 in honor of Luyten von Ostend, who died in a car accident at Christmas 2021.

It is a unitary republic that is in the process of drafting its own constitution and forming a stable government.


The Republic of Luyten is a tribute from the two founders, Alex Guillaume Schmitz and Robin Vercauteren Lenaerts, to their great friend and party companion, Luyten von Oostend.


In early 2022, two friends decided to create a micro-nation in tribute to their best friend, who died in a car accident at Christmas 2021.
