The Republic of Runwich holds claim to a independently-owned area of 630 square feet of territory.


The name Runwich derives from the two old Celtic words, run and wich. The meaning of these words have been lost in translation, but it is believed that they mean either liberty or freedom.


Pre-establishment era (2020-2022)

The Pre-Establishment Era of Runwich began in 2020, where President M decided he wanted to develop his own micronation, after being inspired by others. During this era, no symbols or government has been created but the idea was clear.

Throughout 2021, President M founded a micronation known as Cathia, unfortunately the micronation disolved on 3 January 2022.

In May 2022, President M attempted to create a new micronation known as the Danya Republic, but this idea for a micronation was scrapped.

Finally in June 2022, President M created the idea for the Republic of Runwich.

Planning era (2022)

In June 2022, President M began planning and brainstorming ideas for his micronation, including ideas for names, flags, symbols and land claims. The name he decided on for his micronation was Runwich, with the "wich" pronounced like the "wich" in "sandwich".

Republic of Ærkunshville

During this time, President M's friends created a tongue-in-cheek micronation known as "Ærkunshville". President M partook in the creation of "Ærkunshville" along with a proposal of a flag. President M was voted President of Ærkunshville along with President Olly of Ærkunshville, after two weeks President M decided to resign as president. President Olly is currently still active as the Ærkunshvillean President.

Runnish-Ærkunshvillean Conflict

On 13 July 2022, A Runnish-Ærkunshvillean anonymous became legislator of The Republic of Runwich. When Olly, President of Ærkunshville discovered this information he stated that "Ærkunshivlle first, Danya (President M's second attempt at a micronation) second the best and Runwich with the hairy chest." This created a conflict with Runwich and Ærkunshville soon after.

After 2 years of planning, on 10 July. President M established the Republic of Runwich and Foreignali Territories.

Signing of the Declaration of Independence
