The People's Republic of Todt Hill, often referred to simply as Todt Hill, was a micronation located in Staten Island, New York. The nation was established on 15 February 2021, and dissolved on 31 January 2022.
The Republic of Todt Hill shared the name of the area of Staten Island it is located in. It is believed that the name Todt Hill originates from the German word "tod," meaning "dead," in reference to the local Moravian Cemetery. The name may have also originated from early Dutch settlers because of the hill’s rocky terrain and lack of vegetation.
The Republic of Todt Hill's origins go back to when Katie used to go in her local woodlands, within Todt Hill. The idea for the nation had lingered for a long time, but was established officially on 15 February 2021 by Katie, herself alongside Joseph and Mike who would be the first people to participate in Congress. Ausveria would be the primary nation to back and support Todt Hill's formation. Todt Hill would quickly expand at times and primarily focus on technological advancements.
