The Socialist Republic of Brittany (French: République Socialiste de Bretagne) referred by its abbreviation as SRB is a self-declared country[a], commonly known as a micronation by external observers, located in the European nation of France.
It is a one-party socialist republic, with the General Secretary of the Communist Party being the de jure and de facto Head of State and highest political office within the nation. The General Secretary also concurrently holds the office of the President of the Republic. The legislature is unicameral with the Supreme Council.
The Socialist Republic of Brittany was established in March 2020, during the lockdown due to COVID-19 pandemic in France by Pierre Pellen, who has been serving as the General Secretary of the Communist Party since the establishment of the nation.
It aims to offer a new experience to young people. This micronation is based on the socialist principles of work and equality. It allows young people to discover how a state works, and also helps to learn to function as a team. The State offers a space for reflection on the history of the workers' movement in the world, and on the history of the communist countries that the world has known. It specifies that it absolutely does not support the massacres, executions, deportations perpetrated by the communist regimes, and that this micronation is only intended to offer a new experience to young people.
The nation claims its territories to be located in the French region of Brittany.
