The Free and Respected State of Ariana (Original Filipino name: ᜋᜎᜌ ᜀᜆ᜔ ᜄᜒ ᜈᜄᜎᜅ᜔ ᜈ ᜁᜐ᜔'ᜆ ᜅ᜔ ᜀᜇᜒ'ᜌᜈ Malaya at Ginagalang na Estado ng Ariana) was an organization usually labelled as micronation. Founded on 10 June 2010, the official declaration of establishment was conveyed on 12 June. By the time of its establishment, it covered an area of more than two hundred square meters, with a population of 13. Incidentally, the name Ariana is a former term applied by Greeks to the area known as Persia.

As of August 17, 2011, Ariana claims a total of 25,145 square meters under direct sovereignty, 3,270 square meters under semi-direct sovereignty, and 3,470 square meters under loose sovereignty. Many citizens, including those in the state government, maintain that Ariana is a new country project or model state, since its ideals and principles are futuristic. By pledging not to declare a micronational war, Ariana is also member of the Union Against Micronational War.
