Thulia (/ˈθuːliə/)[a], officially the Republic of Thulia[b] is a small self-declared country, more commonly known as a micronation, in Lekeberg Municipality, Örebro County, Sweden.


The name Thulia originates in a cover of "Hallelujah", named "My L'Manburg" by Wilbur Soot. In the second verse he sings "the beauty of the landscape overthrew ya". In the ears of the future president Svante Axelsson it sounded like: "the beauty of the landscape over Thulia". The Virtual Thulia was the first instance of the name.


The first instance of Thulia was on a Minecraft-server. Svante had a great idea. He wanted to make a settlement surrounded by big blackstone walls. And he called it L'Monstadt. Later L'Monstadt became the headquarter of the new country Thulia, the virtual one.

The idea for the IRL Thulia was put into existence when the future president read an article about micronations on the internet. He thought of it but dismissed the thought for the time being. Some time later he and his mom was out on a walk when Svante came to think of the idea about making a micronation. He told his mom and when they came back home from the walk, Svante declared the future Presidential office as a sovereign nation. Later that week he was staying at his grandparents house. They were watching Angels & Demons. Since the whole movie circles around the Vatican City, Svante remembered the micronation in his bedroom and thought of expanding it. He messaged his dad, the future prime minister, and told him that instead of Thulia just being the bedroom, it could be the entire property around the residential building. The father said he would defend the residential building with potato cannons so that building needed to remain Swedish territory.

During the Cession of Hatiubbust on 16 December 2023, the provinces and territories of The Bugatti, Hackefälla, Seahorse Territory, Tortoise Island and Upper Backa were ceded to Sweden because of their irrelevance as Thulian land claims. Following this a combined area of 0.078978 km2 was lost.


Swedish enclave

The Swedish enclave (more commonly known as the Residential building) is an enclaved territory of Sweden in Korskaay. It covers c. 100 m2 of land and atleast 2 people reside in it.

There is a network of trails in Thulia that span c. 450 metres from New Greenland, through Korskaay and ending in Mornerkaay, also called roads.
