The Rio Grande Republic or RGR for short, is a self declared country located in South Texas that was established on October 9, 2023


Etymology

The name "Rio Grande Republic" comes from the name of the Rio Grande River, which flows adjacent to the nation.

History

The Rio Grande Republic was founded on October 9, 2023 when it formally seceded from the United States. Being situated in South Texas at the border between the United States and Mexico, It consisted of two territories known as San Judas County and Guadalupe County which would host the capital city of the Republic. (Guadalupe)

Early roots in "The Republic of Sunaoro"

Although the country has only appeared recently, it has its roots in a former "micronation" called the Republic of Sunaoro, which was founded by President Sanchez some time in 2020. This micronation however, unlike its successor, was not a serious project and was short lived, having multiple phases before being scrapped entirely. At a brief point in this early project's history (around 2020-2021), the land would be annexed by a nation called the People's Republic of Adonia. The Adonian government would establish a new Adonian province or "commune" called the Rio Grande Commune. In this point of history, the land was under communist rule but it would also be short lived, as the Republic of Sunaoro would return to power and reclaim the land. It was a peaceful transaction as the People's Republic of Adonia ceded the land, supporting its belief of self determination. The micronation would only hold official recognition with two countries, the People's Republic of Adonia and the Republic of The Sohnland. After a half year long period of inactivity, the micronation was disbanded in 2021 between February and April.
