The Republic of Cabecia (/kʊbɛʃʊ/, /kʊbɛʃiːʊ/ or /kʊbɛsiːʊ/; kə-bee-shə, kə-bee-shee-ə or kə-bee-see-ə, Portuguese: República de Cabécia), commonly known as Cabecia, is an island nation located in the Western Greater Azores.

Originally discovered by Portuguese sailors, the island was used as a trading post with natives for decades until Britain colonized the land, finding it almost unpopulated. The island had strong tides with Dutch Azores for decades and avoided battle with each other during the second, third and fourth Anglo-Dutch Wars, mainly due to trade.

Cabecia gained independence as a dominion of the British Empire in 1876, recognized by the United Kingdom in early 1877, after the Civil War. The island remained a dominion until it's official independence in 1952.

Etymology

Portuguese sailors that originally discovered and mapped the island called it A Ilha da Cabeça, or the Island of the Head, for the resemblance of a human head that the mappers saw.

Once British colonized the island, the island was renamed British Azores. The capital, originally King Port, was moved to Cabecia City, named after the Portuguese name for the island.

Once the island had gained independence from the British, the inhabitants of the island had a tough time naming the island, as many native names were already used for cities and towns. It was decided that the name would be used after the capital city, a name reflecting the history of the island, and inhabitants officially decided on the name Cabecia.
