The Duchy of Rivuletingham, more commonly known as Rivuletingham, is a micronation in Central Europe, east of Czechia.
Name Rivuletingham, literally translated as Settlement of people by the rivulet, is based on geografical position of the duchy.
The area was first mapped in 1833 as part of the Imperial Obligatory Imprint of the Stable Cadastre of Moravia and Silesia. From this map it is readable that there were 4 wooden houses in the territory, a meadow in the middle, a forest in the east and west. The second map comes from 1913 and shows only two houses (wooden and brick). Other buildings were built here in the 1970s.

Geography and climate
The Duchy is located on the slope of Bukovina Hill, so the difference between the lowest and the highest point is about 30 meters. The highest point of Rivuletingham, Heap view, is located on the northern border. Rivuletingham is situated on the border of oceanic and continental climate. Thanks to oceanic air masses there are mild winters and cooler summers. Snow holds here the longest along the southern border, because here sheds a forest from the left bank of Kněhyňka. There are three streams, the largest Kněhyňka describing the southern border, Malá Bukovina, flowing along the eastern border and Velká Bukovina in the west. Watercourses are currently paying for long-term drought.
Due to the size of the territory, import has a great advantage over export. Potatoes, forage, and to a lesser extent zucchini, peas, tomatoes, peppers, strawberries, plums and apples are grown on the territory. Plums and apples are fermented on the territory, and in the Czech Republic they are burned on alcohol.
