Kyúnttropia is an unrecognised island area in Lakadasia, south-west of Lakadamia and south of Hwaesonna. Kyúnttropia was first mentioned in Scandavian reports about government members supporting Kyúnttropian rebels in Lakadamia but has since been proven as fake news by the Lakadamian and Scandavian governments. Its actual existence is denied by both countries.

Presumably, a people group had split from its origins and demanding their right for self-determination as a nation. There are several self-proclaimed "freedom fighters" but no elected officials.

Several Fantasian nations have reacted to the emerging nation and some have already recognized it in parts or fully.
