The Republic of Parva Domus Magna Quies (‘Small house, great rest’) is located in a mansion in Montevideo, Uruguay. Founded in 1878 as a fishing club, the civil organization occupied an extensive hacienda in the outskirts of Montevideo, of which today only the main mansion remains. The rest was converted into condominium complexes, which are the main source of income for the small republic. It is also a social, civil and cultural club. According to its constitution it can only have a maximum of 250 citizens at a time—all men—but throughout its history, it had almost 850,000 inhabitants. Among them there have been illustrious figures such as the writer Rubén Darío, the Italian musician Arturo Toscanini, the Italian politician Giuseppe Garibaldi or the Uruguayan president Juan Campisteguy. During the Uruguay River pulp mill dispute, in 2007, the micronation managed to gather the foreign ministers of Argentina and Uruguay at their headquarters, who sang tangos and drank wine, while negotiating a peaceful solution to the conflict.
