The Corte People's Republic, (Corsican: Republica Populare Di Corte) is a micronation founded on August 3, 2022, located entirely within central Corsica. The country was self-proclamed independent after a referendum, following the Cortenese Revolution of Dignity, led by the current president of the country, Zacheo Mackey, and is recognised as de jure part of France. The national languages of the CPR are Corsican and French, being the first nation to adopt corsican as a national language. The capital of the CPR is the historical city of Corte, first bastion of the revolution, which has a population of 7459 inhabitants (2019), the CPR itself has just over 9711 inhabitants (2020).

The country is a Federal Presidential Republic, led by President Zacheo Mackey of the Corte Socialist Party, The CPR's National Parliament is located within the Corte University District, downtown Corte. Elections are held every 5 years.

The CPR, has rather bad relations with the country of which they declared independance, France, which is the only country it has a border with.


The Corte People's Republic has a population of 9711 inhabitants (January 2019 estimate).

At the 2018 census, 78.7% of the inhabitants of the CPR were people born on the island, 14.8% were from Continental France, and 6.5% were born in foreign countries.

The majority of the foreign immigrants in the CPR come from the Maghreb (particularly Moroccans, who made up 29.1% of all immigrants in the country at the 2018 census) and from Southern Europe (particularly Portuguese and Italians, 24.0% and 12.4% of immigrants in the country respectively).


In July 2022, the Corte Socialist Party was founded to protest against the capitalist ways of living of the French Governement, the party becoming more and more popular led to the Cortenese Revolution of Dignity, and rapidly, the french influence in the territories claimed by the Republic fell, leading to the proclamation of independance of the Corte People'es Republic on August 3, 2022. An assembly was formed and the constitution of the new nation was ratified on August 5, 2022. The french governement has never recognised the nation.
