Free Republic of Liberland (hereinafter “Liberland”) is a sovereign state located between Croatia and Serbia on the west bank of the Danube river. On some maps, this area is referred to as “Gornja Siga.” The nearest towns are Zmajevac (Croatia) and Bački Monoštor (Autonomous Province of Vojvodina, Serbia).
This parcel of land came into existence due to a border dispute between Croatia and Serbia. This area is not claimed by Croatia, Serbia, nor any other nation or private entity. Furthermore, it has been unclaimed since the dissolution of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in 1991. In fact, for many decades, it has been uninhabited and no claim was ever made to this piece of land. It was therefore Terra Nullius –a no man’s land–until Vít Jedlička and Jana Markovicova proclaimed it as Free Republic of Liberland on April 13, 2015. Liberland has set its boundary with ample margin to it's neighbouring country, to ascertain that it does not infringe with the territory of Croatia or Serbia. The total area is approximately 7 km² and is now the third smallest sovereign state, after Vatican and Monaco. (For more information regarding the border dispute between Croatia and Serbia see the article on Wikipedia.)
What defines a state?
According to Article 1 of the 1993 Montevideo Convention on Rights and Duties of States, the canonical definition in international law reads: "The state as a person of international law should possess the following qualifications: (a) a permanent population; (b) a defined
territory; (c) government; and (d) capacity to enter into relations with the other states."
Free Republic of Liberland has fulfilled all these criteria. Read on our news section here to find out how Liberland has been fulfilling these standards and principles set out in the Montevideo Convention ever since its inception.
The motto of Liberland is “To live and let live” as it prides itself on personal and economic freedom for its people; this includes limited power given to the government to ensure less intereferance with the freedom of the people and to its nation as a whole. These ideas and ideals are written and guaranteed by the Constitution.
