The Anacratic Republic of Padrhom (French:République Anacratique du Padrhom) is a micronation founded on December 10, 2011.

After too many speeches from some ministers of the French government of the time, and from the president himself, the feeling of being no more in the country of Human Rights has grown. The Anacratic Republic of Padrhom is a concretisation of this mind exile.


Padrhom is a french acronym: PAys des DRoits de l'HOMme (Country of the Human Rights)


The Anacratic Republic of Padrhom has for goals the promotion of the Human Rights and Protection of the Environment. The Republic of Padrhom has, all along with its history, wanted to escape to the corruption of power.

Padrhom was founded on December 10, 2011. This is considering the founding date because it's the first day a letter with a padrhomian stamp (french stamp overloaded) has travelled through the French Post. It was the first act of existence.
