Welcome to the world’s newest country.

What is the Federated States of Gapla?

Gapla, officially the Federated States of Gapla, is a newborn country mainly located on two islands of European terra nullius.

We have a vibrant culture, lots of things to do, territory between Serbia and Croatia, and so much more.

Founded from a small piece of land that was left unclaimed by both sides in a border dispute, we used it to further our ideals of starting a brand new country. We are the first project to claim such territory in a manner that is still valid. Our goals are simple and straightforward: to first create a digital diaspora, working to constantly improve Gapla in its politics, digital interface, and much more. Early contributors are rewarded with passports, titles of nobility, and land grants. The eventual goal is to settle the territory, or at least to build a small physical city as a temporary territory.

But more than that: we are a unique community of people who are dedicated to creating a new country.

Your Journey in Gapla

There are so many possible exciting journeys in Gapla, all leading to helping us build a new nation.

Common paths in Gapla include becoming a member of the monarchy, government, creating a business, physically charting our territory, starting a city, or becoming an elected representative. There are many ministries and bureaus dedicated to helping you live your passion in Gapla, whether it is to become a successful businessman or to achieve your dream of becoming a princess (yes, seriously).

Gapla is a worldwide community of like minds, not just a nation, that’s dedicated to truly building something unique. We are a very rewarding community in which you can build a new country from the ground up and be rewarded along the way!

Become a Gaplan citizen

Gaplan citizens are eligible to communicate with like-minded individuals in the national forum, earn Gapla Dollars (the national currency), start a business, start a city, or become elected as representatives.

Learn about our nation

Before you can be involved in anything significant, you will need to learn about our nation, its principles, and some of our national history. The course is very short and usually takes a few weeks to complete.

Learn about ways to get involved

Once you complete the basic orientation course, Gaplans are now eligible to start adventures of their own – by contributing to the cause of our nation. If you choose to, you may even visit it and contribute physically, but this is far from the only path to get involved – there are many exciting opportunities.

Get involved!

Once you’ve learned about our nation and the ways to get involved, it’s time to contribute to our nation in a way that’s right for you. There are so many opportunities to unlock, and you can always switch to another opportunity, such as appearing on our podcast, the GaplaTalks, or becoming an ambassador.

Explore our Beautiful Nation

While small, our nation is composed of two small islands on the Danube river: Princess Emma Island and Princess Chelsea Island.

More than (Just) a Nation

Gapla is more than just a nation. We’re a community of like minds.

While we’re serious here about creating a new country on unclaimed territory, we also have a lot of fun in the process and ensure that everyone can participate effectively in the country.

There’s always things to do here: naming streets and cities, contacting diplomats, playing music for our National Orchestra, chatting with other citizens, managing your own state, and so much more. All while helping us create a new country.

Hear from our Citizens

Gapla was created because the founder saw the faults in this world and how bad the place was where he lived. For example, America. America promises new chances and the “American Dream” but in that dream they left out basically anyone who was different. If you were an immigrant, especially if you were black, you were treated horribly.

They gave us a fake promise. The faults of this world aren’t unclear for the current Gaplan leadership, they strive to make Gapla the leading place for the real promise, a place where segregation and unfair judgement is removed, a place where mankind can finally improve the faults they’ve had since the very beginning. Erit Ergo Justitia!

Gapla is a close to perfect country. That’s the reason I chose to help found it.

While other countries like the US discriminate against people by putting pointless age restrictions, Gapla is the country that makes voting based on intelligence. It’s the country that makes sense.

Gapla is the country of peace, justice, and liberty.

Unlike the United States, there is no electoral college, which messes with voting results, has a simple government that regular citizens can understand, and has a unique voting system that was proven to give better results according to the will of the people.

In the United States, there is still injustice. In Gapla, everyone is equal, no matter your race, color, or gender. There is no discrimination. Join Gapla and be free!
