Frequently Asked Questions

The following section provides answers to some frequently asked questions about Gapla.

Q: Is Gapla a real country?

A: Yes. Although the Federated States of Gapla’s main territory on the Danube river is not inhabited, this does not disqualify us from being a country as Gapla meets the general requirements for being a country (having a legitimate claim to a territory and representing oneself as a country). Practically, however, Gapla is still working on its goal to become an inhabited country, and you can help!

There is no formal authority that regulates who is a country and who is not. Countries are the highest-level divisions of power in the world, so logically, the only requirement to be a country is to have a legitimate claim to a territory and represent oneself as a country.

Q: Is Gapla a member of the United Nations?

A: No. The Federated States of Gapla is currently not a member state of the United Nations, as it has not applied for membership in the organization yet. We do not believe it will benefit Gapla at this time to become a member of the United Nations.

However, it is a future possibility that Gapla will become a U.N. member, and Gapla reserves its right to apply for membership in the organization.

Q: How many citizens does Gapla have?

A: We currently have over 350 citizens registered on our website, however, not all of them will be allowed to settle in our territory.

Q: How can I become a Gaplan citizen?

A: You can apply for Gaplan citizenship by clicking the “Apply for Citizenship” button on the header of this website.

Q: How did Gapla get its territory?

A: There is a brief explanation of how Gapla acquired its territory on the “About our Territory” page. If you’re looking for official claim records and documents and the exact details of our claim on the territory, please contact us through info@gaplagov.org and we would be glad to share!
