Rump State
Kingdom of Soissons, a Roman rump state.

A rump state is the remnant of a once much larger state, left with a reduced territory in the wake of secession, annexation, occupation, decolonization, or a successful coup d'état or revolution on part of its former territory.[1] In the latter case, a government stops short of going into exile because it still controls part of its former territory.

  • In the manga and anime series Attack on Titan, the nation of Eldia existed in an upside down map of Africa. It later grew unstable due to internal conflicts between the families with the power of the Titans, and collapsed during the Great Titan War a century ago. Eldia lost most of its land as well as seven of the Nine Titans to a newly reborn Marley, a nation long persecuted by Eldia, and many Eldians retreated to Paradis Island, the surviving rump state of Eldia. The 145th Eldian King, Karl Fritz raised the Walls with thousands of Colossal Titans to protect Eldia from Marley and the other nations of the world, and erased the memories of Eldia from the ethnic group, the Subjects of Ymir inside. In Marley, the remaining Eldians of the mainland would then be forced into internment zones, where they would be treated as second class citizens and later became a colonial empire.[21]
