In my confuture, there are nations with names like "The Holy Democratic
Republic of New Jerusalem on Mare Tranquilitatis" for a small sovereign
city-state in the Sea of Tranquility on the Moon.  :-)  After terrorists
directed an asteroid at Earth, destroying terrestrial civilization, most
of the various colonies and cities off Earth broke up into independent
states, many of them using elaborate names.  A few others I've come up
with:

The Kingdom of New Osaka Over Amazonis Planitia
The Holy Empire of New France and Moscoviense City [Moscoviense City was
named after the Mare Moscoviense]
The People's Scientific Socialist Republic of Gagarin Crater
