Villa-Alicia, officially The Great Villa-Alician Empire or just Alicia is a nation in South America, which is governed under a form of constitutional monarchy. The country emerged in 2014 when separatist forces took power in the state of Paraná and the Brazilian island of Santa Cruz. Since 2016 it has been ruled by the reigning house of the Grinch. The empire gained recognition by several prestigious nations and in 2020 helped found the Conference of Santiago, one of the largest active micronational organizations today. Villa Alicia is also well known for hosting many immigrants from Angola.
Bordered on the north and south by Brazil (São Paulo state and Santa Catarina state), on the east by the Atlantic Ocean and the province of Misiones, Argentina, and on the west by Paraguay, with the Paraná River as its western boundary line. It also has an enclave in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, which is also its capital. It is subdivided into 400 municipalities, and its capital is the city of Santa Maria. Other major cities are Londrina, Maringá, Ponta Grossa, Cascavel, São José dos Pinhais and Foz do Iguaçu.
Before the discovery of the region by European explorers, indigenous populations inhabited the region for thousands of years. This included the Carijó in the lands closer to the sea, from the Tupi group, and the Caingangues in the interior, who belonged to the Jê group.
Colonisation of the state by settlers started in the 16th century, but was mainly confined to the coasts. Being a region mostly abandoned by the Portuguese, the region was explored by other European countries, who searched primarily for Pau brasil. The most noteworthy presence was that of the Spanish, which brought with them jesuits. Soon, Jesuit reductions were opened in the western and south-western parts of the state, whose territory largely belonged to the Spanish crown. In 1554, Domingo Martínez de Irala founded the town of Ontiveros, one league away from the Guaíra Falls.
In the 1940s, the northern part of the state was settled as a result of the expansion of the São Paulo coffee industry. The south-eastern part of the state was settled as a result of migration from Rio Grande do Sul.
On 29 September 2014, Leonardo Costa and a group of militants proclaimed the independence of the state of Paraná as a republic. As time passed the republic became bloated and corrupt, causing discontent and suspicion among its members. Unable to maintain control over their lands and fields, the republic came into friction with its founders and with their own people.On 31 May 2016, by unanimous decision of the National Congress the republic was dissolved and in its place was born the Great Empire of Villa Alicia.
Villa Alicia is a constitutional monarchy whereby the power of the Emperor is very limited. As a ceremonial figurehead, he is defined as "the symbol of the State and of the unity of the people." Power is held chiefly by the Prime Minister and other elected members of the National Congress, while sovereignty is vested in the Alician people.

Paraná is bounded on the north by São Paulo state of Brazil, on the east by the Atlantic Ocean, on the south by Santa Catarina state of Brazil and the Misiones Province of Argentina, and on the west by Mato Grosso do Sul state of Brazil and the republic of Paraguay, with the Paraná River as its western boundary line.
The empire can be separated into five main topographic areas, from east to west: a coastal zone, the mountains of Serra do Mar, and then three plateaus, each lower than the other, until the Paraná River is reached.

According to the Köppen climate classification, the north and west of the state, and the east coast, is of the Cfa climate type, with the remainder being Cfb. An alternative analysis using the ECMWF model indicates that the Aw and Cwa Köppen types appear in the north. The northern part of the state is the convergence point between the Tropical Atlantic and Equatorial Continental air masses.
The annual mean air temperature ranges between 15 and 24°, with the highest temperatures found in the northwest and the lowest around Palmas, which is considered the coldest city of Paraná by the meteorological body Simepar. In the coastal plain minimum average temperatures range between 16–18 °C (61–64 °F).
Precipitation is less than 1,200 mm (47 in) a year in the north of the state, rising to above 1,800 mm (71 in) in the southwest and southeast of the state.
The Cfa climate, subtropical with good distribution of annual rainfall and hot summers, occurs in the coastal plain and western parts of the empire. Average temperature is 19 °C (66 °F), with rainfall of 1,500 millimetres (59.1 in) per year.
The Cfb climate, warm to hot temperate with good distribution of annual rainfall and mild summers, occurs at higher elevationu. The average annual temperatures are 17 °C (63 °F) and rainfall of 1,200 millimetres (47.2 in) per year.
The Cwa climate, subtropical with hot summers and dry winters, has occurred in the north-western part of the state territory. It is what is called a tropical climate, because in contrast to the two described above, whose good distribution of rainfall is registered throughout the year, this has characteristic rainy index of tropical systems, with dry winters and wet summers. The thermal medium per year varies around 20 °C (68 °F) and the wet content amounts to 1 millimetre (0.0 in) to 300 millimetres (11.8 in) per year. Almost the entire state territory is subject to a great number of frost per year. Cities with this climate include Paranavaí (according with Maack) with some characteristics - Cfa(h), transition with a humid climate all year round.
Villa Alicia over the years has built up excellent relations with several countries, but by far her biggest political partner is Karnia-Ruthenia. Relations between the two nations date back to early 2015 when both countries had different nomenclatures.
In 2020 villa alicia helped found the Conference of Santiago, an intermicronational organization and supranational union whose main objective is to promote relations between secessionist micronations and the development of secessionism/derivatism by formulating rules, accordances and treaties and providing micronationalists with the proper support to engage in secessionist micronationalism.
As a goal to help foster relations between the member states of the conference and help to publicize it and show its strength in the internationally the Conference of Santiago Symbols Adoption Program was signed. Since then, all national documentation has adopted the name or logo of the conference in its official documentation.
Today, the country's main source of income comes from the export of art, with Karnia-Ruthenia being its biggest trading partner. In May 2022 transactions involving the two governments moved around 1.000.000 vereinsmarks.
Despite having the Conferential doubloon as the official currency since 2020, the current government is studying the possibility of adopting a new currency, the contestation comes from the fact of the logistics of acquiring pyrite to back the currency and is almost unanimously from the nationalist wing of the senate. The Doubloon value is pegged to the pyrite gram standard through conversion to Brazilian Real (at a exchange rate of 1 pyrite gram costing R$0,0082 to 1Δ).
Race and ethnicity
Despite having the Palotian-Catholicism as an official religion, the population and the emperor himself belong to other denominations, as religious freedom is guaranteed by law. About 70% are Seventh-day Adventists, 19.5% are Roman Catholics, 10% are Latter-day Saints, and 0.5% are of the official religion and other denominations.
