Gerria, (pronounced /dʒjɛrijə/, officially the Union of Companies of the Gerryscute GEB Empire and also called the Gerryscute GEB Empire or simply the Gerrian Empire), is a de facto self-proclaimed unrecognized micronation owned by the production company Gerryscute GEB. It is bordered entirely by the United States and the State of Texas on all of its sides. It claims sovereignty over numerous homes in a Spring, Texas neighborhood called "Memorial Northwest". It is led by Benjamin Posada, It has 133 official languages, with English and Spanish being the most widely spoken.
The full name of the micronation is the "Union of Peoples, States, Oblasts, Republics, Kingdoms, Monarchies, Companies, Federations, Empires, Stars, Planets, Minor Planets and Moons of the Central People's Autocratic Federation of the Twenty-Three Subdivisions of the Gerryscute GEB Empire". The common name "Gerria" is named in honour of Geraldine Posada, a cousin of it's leader Benjamin Posada.
It was founded on the night of 11 July 2022. when it's legal document called The Empirical Code started being written. On 6 August, it began it's expansion and claimed sovereignty over a property near Big Thicket National Preserve.
An independence referendum for the country to become completely independent from the United States was held on 17 September 2022 on its leader's birthday.
The country annexed a property in Galveston on 24 October 2022.
Gerria participated in a Cold War between it and the community of a website called "Our World of Text", which lasted from 19 November 2022 to 21 March 2023. The cause of the cold war was emperor Posada accidentally revealing the name of the street where his house (the Gerrian First Headquarters) resides in, leading to a period of tensions between the two sides. OWOT's continuous victory and Gerria's continuous failure to stop them led to a collapse of the Gerrian economy and the Gerrian royal family to oppose the website community. Gerria has since planned to spread the message to stop OWOT to other micronations that are near and far, and to launch a worldwide protest against the website as a revenge plan for bullying emperor Benjamin Posada.
On 5 December 2022, the Gerrian government created a channel on YouTube called "Gerrian Territorial News".
It was left in anarchy for 5 days from 8 February until 13 February when government was restored.
From its founding on 11 July 2022 to 26 February 2023, it was a dictatorship under Posada I's regime, it has since then became an autocratic multi-party monarchy with Posada's love interest Mia Leal as the country's new secretary.
On 1 May 2023, Gerria no longer became landlocked after Article II on the Treaty of Annexing the Third Headquarters oblast took effect when an area of beach territory to the southeast of Third Headquarters stretching from its border to the coastline at the Gulf of Mexico was annexed and incorporated as part of the Third Headquarters oblast.
On 1 June 2023, In response to a dog barking at its eastern neighboring house, Gerrian emperor Posada signed a decree annexing the two homes that border it to the northeast and the southeast, the northern home became part of the "Beaufort Krai" while the eastern home became part of the "Republic of Tinaland", named after Tina the mother of two children residing in the Tinaland Republic.
Gerria is a federation of 35 political divisions each with a devolved government over themselves, none of them are populated except for 9. Gerria is a parliamentary republic under a centralised authoritarian government.
Gerria is known as being one of the smallest micronations ever with an area of 0.0024349 km2. Gerrias headquarters reside at 30° N and approximately 95° W. The house was the only building established in the country until the annexation of the Galveston Beach House in 24 October 2022. Since then, the country currently has 7 homes within its territory, each separated apart.
The mainland is a rectangle shaped region covering an area featuring the house in the east

Parking Lot, Western Fields, Southwestern Fields, Entrance Fields, and Southern Fields oblasts were deluged with people and families walking by the streets of the country wearing costumes and carrying candy bags. Some families might have knocked on the door of the First Headquarters.
November doxxing incident
On 19 November 2022, The sreet address of Gerria's First Headquarters was doxxed on the website Our World of Text. Many users including one named "PinkiePie" thinked about ordering a pizza to Gerria's First Headquarters. Causing Gerrian leader Benjamin to become furious.
Shortly afterwards, the coordinates to the Eastern Back Fields oblast were doxxed.
Several users from the website Our World of Text may have illegally visited the property of the first headquarters.
After the incident, the Gerrian government is currently thinking about buying security cameras on Ring. In order to detect any immigrants from the United States who illegally trespass Gerrian borders.
On 23 November 2022, A man (presumably one from OWOT) knocked on the door of Gerria's First Headquarters near Entrance Fields Oblast. In response, Benjamin is asking his dad to buy security cameras, presumably those sold by the company Ring.
December doxxing incident
On 8 December 2022, The house info of the First Headquarters and Benjamin's parent's personal information were revealed again on the website Our World of Text, in response, Benjamin put the business logo sign on his house's front door for the first time since 24 May 2022, and also wrote "Do not enter if your are an OWOT user, Benjamin does not tolerate people like that". He called his dad saying that his info was revealed, he told it to his mother.
In response, the Gerrian government sanctioned the Our World of Text website and all of it's users, banning them from entering it's territory.

January 2023 doxxing incidents and Gerrian-OWOT Wars
On 2 January 2023, the same day that Gerria enacted a new constitution, Benjamin's accounts, his mother's phone number and email, and his father and sister's emails were doxxed again for the third time on the website "Our World Of Text" by an unknown user after a conversation about Benjamin's privacy on the website, The Gerrian government as a result took retaliatory steps against the website community and almost threatened to report the whole website to the US government's identity theft website for it to be taken down immediately, but the website operator "fp" has stopped him from doing this. Benjamin, now in a fury, said that he banned all OWOTers from entering his territory and that he won't be accepting visits from the website community. He told this information to his parents, causing his whole family to rise up against the OWOT community. His mother agreed to buy security cameras to detect illegal OWOT refugees who trespass the Gerrian borders, otherwise, Gerria might have to move it's headquarters further out to another place, which would echo the time when Gerria temporarily moved it's headquarters to Galveston Beach House oblast during the Great Water Outage of 2022 (see above for more info).
On 18 January 2023, Gerria declared war on the community of the Our World of Text website and launched attacks against everything near the spawn, Gerria quickly captured the Square of Publicity within 10 minutes while several users including lime.owot and e_g have tried fighting back, Gerria's capital building's street address was again doxxed, and thus resulting in personal information from the Gerrian royal family doxxed within hours into the war, as Gerrria, lime, and e_g competed over who controls the SoP, a static appeared to cover everything near the Square of Publicity, graffiti was drawn on the Gerrian occupation zone and Gerria was disqualified from the war which officially ended the war.
On 19 January 2023, Gerria again declared war on OWOT and launch attacks and assaults against everything north of the publicity square inside the spawn area, lime, e_g, and the static fought back, Gerrian leader Posada now in a fury rages in all caps and threatened everyone to surrender, fp took immediate action and Gerrian leader Posada was muted, as a result, Gerria lost the war to the OWOT community, and as a result, the Gerrian government is currently deciding to block access to Our World of Text and it's predecessor Your World of Text.
In the aftermath of the war, the Gerrian government is currently planning on hiring and entering relations with other micronations nearby for help in stopping the OWOT community from winning any further, Cyclodia and the Commonwealth of Dracul are the two best candidates for Gerria to hire within months after the war.
Great Flood of 2023

Wokecat will be forced to pay $2,000 (G200,000) to Posada and the Gerrian government as a punishment for attempted swatting, and that "AJLstick" and "Gonzo" should be sentenced to prison each with 5 years.

Shortly after going out, the dogs invaded the oblast by taking over most of its area and chasing and running after the chickens. Trying to get in the coop, one of the dogs ran in the bayou while he chased over the chickens. They were later successfully brought back by the owners of the dogs and punished them, before being taken out of the oblast.
