The Republic of Vetria (Italian: Repubblica di Vetria, Irish: Poblacht na bhFetria, Vetrian: Lyðyvylð e Vetria) is a micronation founded on 27 June 2012. It is located in Northern Italy.


The name Vetria was created by a mangling of the toponym Castelvetro di Modena, place where the Micronation came into being.


Vetria is a presidential republic and a direct democracy.

The political sector of the micronation is composed by President, President of the Assembly and the Ministers.

The political parties in the National Assembly are the SDP, Progetto Dozza, Ceber, P2MV, PV and one Vetrian delegation of the Five Star Movement.


The national territory is divided into five departments:

  1. Federal District
  2. Concordia
  3. San Giorgio
  4. Bixio
  5. Alta Città

It also includes three outer communities:

  1. Migliorara
  2. Gatta
  3. La Villa

Geogeaphy and climate

The territory is located inside central Emilia-Romagna, claiming the historical center of Castelvetro di Modena, plus some isolated centers around the town and the municipality.

In autumn and winter, it tends to be rainy and/or cloudy, while in late January it is sometimes snowy; in summer, it is sunny with very high temperatures (sometimes even touching 40 °C).


The national economy is regulated by the Minister of Finance and the People's Bank of Vetria.

The currency is the Vetrian Lira (ISO: VTL, Symbol: ₤; pegged to the Euro).
