Reoublic of Kekistan'' is a fictional country invented by users on 4chan’s /pol/ board as the tongue-in-cheek ethnic origin of “shitposters” known as “Kekistanis” who worship the ancient Egyptian diety Kek. In late January 2017, Kekistan began widely circulating on Twitter following its promotion by YouTuber Sargon of Akkad.
That day, the Republic of Kekistan Twitter feed was launched, declaring itself “the official Twitter account of the Kekistani Republic.” Within 48 hours, the feed gained over 5,000 followers. Meanwhile, the site Kekistan.com was launched, including a “Kek manifesto”.
Meanwhile, other Twitter users began tweeting the hashtag #FreeKekistan
 along with jokes denouncing normies and professing their pride in shitposting.
The following day, YouTuber The New Memedia uploaded the song “Shadilay” under the titled “The National Anthem of Kekistan”. The video was subsequently removed. Meanwhile, the /r/kekistan subreddit was launched, with the description “There is only one God (Kek) and Pepe is his prophet.” On February 1st, a page for “Kekistan” was created on Encyclopedia Dramatica.
