Parva Domus, officially the Republic of Parva Domus Magna Quies (Latin for "small house, big rest") is a self-proclaimed micronational republic surrounded by the city of Montevideo, Uruguay. The nation has served as a civil, cultural and recreational association since its foundation in 1878.
Parva Domus is a micronation and self-proclaimed republic with a social and recreational aim. As usual in this type of organization, its citizens employ all sorts of flamboyant appellations and honors. The national government is led by a president and a cabinet of ministers. Its territory hosts a neoclassical residence built in 1919, known as the presidential palace. The property is surrounded by gardens and statues. It is located in the neighborhood of Punta Carretas.
The constitution of Parva Domus admits a maximum of 250 simultaneous citizens. Only men are allowed to become citizens. In 130 years, the republic has had over 843,297 citizens.
The Uruguayan Postal Service issued a postage stamp in 2003 in honor of the 125th anniversary of the Republic of Parva Domus. The micronation hosted a meeting between Uruguayan and Argentinean diplomats during the pulp mill dispute in 2007.
Every year during Uruguay's Heritage Day, the nation opens to the public and offers guided visits of its national museum, gardens, and theatre.
