The Republic of New Santos (Indonesian: Republik Santos Baru), or simply known as New Santos, was a short-lived micronation, as an attempt created by William Timothy from April to May 2013 to reinstate the government of the defunct Federal Republic of Santos, with himself as the President. The attempt was ultimately a failure, as it was dissolved a month later and remains inactive until Republic of St. John, the de jure successor of New Santos were established on December 2013.

History

After the dissolution of the Kingdom of William Ranger on 2 April 2013, William Timothy (the former King of William Ranger) declared the foundation of the Republic of New Santos on 7 April 2013. He founded New Santos in hope to restore the Federal Republic of Santos, the predecessor state of William Ranger.

Despite the initial enthusiasm from the founder, the micronation was ignored shortly thereafter and received very few attention throughout its existence, both internally and externally, and ultimately finally on 23 May 2013 because the founder have completely lost their enthusiasm for New Santos. The micronation remains dissolved until 20 December 2013, when the Republic of St. John was established. St. John government declared itself a successor of the Republic of New Santos.

Administrative divisions

New Santos administratively consists of six cities. These cities are headed by "kings" (Indonesian: raja). However, New Santos were disbanded before the "kings" were assigned to preside over these cities. The names of these cities are:

  • Viesland (the capital of New Santos)
  • New Santosia
  • Catazo
  • Unnamed city
  • Northwood (formerly Santosia)
  • Southplace (formerly Santosia)
