The Peoples Republic of Tesforia, more commonly known as Tesforia, is a micronation located in New York State, east of New York City. The nation was founded on 13 April 2019, but did not become active in the community until late 2019. The purpose of the nation is to improve the lives of all who enter the nation.
Brennan Sullivan was watching YouTube videos when he stumbled upon a video about the Republic of Molossia. Sullivan was inspired and started searching for other micronations, thinking to create his own micronation with a friend. He talked with his friend and they decided on a name, that being the Peoples Republic of Brenuindia. Eventually, President Sullivan and his friend had a fight and partitioned the nation. However, Sullivan wasn't done with micronationalism yet. He claimed a small area in his backyard and started a new nation, the Republic of Patchogue. This name was later changed to the Republic of Islandia and then to its current form, the Peoples Republic of Tesforia.
On 25 April 2020, Pathogue was reformed into Tesforia
