In roleplay, Minoa (officially the State of Minoa) is a transcontinental country between Europe and Asia that was founded on 1 May 2025.
When compared to the real world, the territory of Minoa would cover Greece and the Republic of Macedonia, plus nineteen provinces of Turkey (Antalya, Aydın, Balıkesir, Burdur, Bursa, Denizli, Edirne, Isparta, Istanbul, İzmir, Kırklareli, Kocaeli, Manisa, Muğla, Sakarya, Tekirdağ, Uşak, Yalova, and Çanakkale), and the Blagoevgrad region in Bulgaria.
In gameplay, Minoa was unavailable for registration when it was first role-played, but became a nation on its own on 6th October 2011, as a result of the current nation name release programme (which started in the same year). Until then, Charlotte Ryberg represented Minoa, given that it is currently not possible to change nations names.
In January 2017, Minoa authored Issue 666, A Microchip On Your Shoulder: the issue satirises the human-implantable microchip conspiracy theory.
