On August 5, 2021, it ceded all of its territory back to the US and dissolved.



At the founding, the nation was called The Republic of Lululand, after the founder's dog. On May 30, it was discovered that the name was already in use, so the name was changed to The Republic of Southwest Vineland, due to the fact the Vineland was what the Vikings called eastern Canada when it was discovered by them, so "Southwest Vineland" would be somewhere in the Midwestern US, AKA Illinois.
