Nov 14, 2009: Molossia

Quote:
The Republic of Molossia (moe-LAAHSS-eeyah) is a sovereign, independent nation, located in and completely surrounded by territory of the United States. With a total area of 9956 sRN (2.5 ha / 6.3 ac), Molossia is one of the smallest nations on earth, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in spirit. A sense of humor characterizes most Molossian people, which, coupled with the casual and comfortable western lifestyle, makes Molossia an enjoyable place to visit.


OK, 8 people and 4 dogs on 6.3 acres in Nevada = Molossia.
Internal threat to the US? Crazy tax dodgers? Moonshiners/pot growers? Religious cult?
Don't think so, just some left over hippies having fun, and making a couple bucks selling coins, stamps, and stuff.

Quote:
Please note: The Republic of Molossia bears no relation to the ancient Greek nation of the same name.
May 26th, 1977 I - Founded as the Grand Republic of Vuldstein near Portland, Oregon. King James I proclaimed King of Vuldstein.

1980 III - Renamed the Kingdom of Edelstein; Nomadic Period; King inactive, government headed by the Prime Minister.

1988 XI - Renamed the Kingdom of Zaria: Nomadic Period; King inactive, government headed by the Prime Minister.

May 1998 XXI - Land obtained near Dayton, Nevada. The Kingdom is renamed Molossia and proclaimed upon our new land.

June 1998 XXI - Kingdom of Molossia overthrown and replaced by provisional Communist government.

September, 1998 XXI - Provisional Government relinquishes sovereignty, merges Molossia with the United Provinces of Utopia, a Communist nation.

January 1999 XXII - The United Provinces of Utopia ceases to exist.

February 21st, 1999 XXII - The People's Democratic Republic of Molossia is declared, a sovereign nation again, with a communist government.

September 3rd 1999 XXII - The communist government is renounced, and the Republic of Molossia is established.
I guess they gave up the commie thing, when they discovered the US would not invade, and pour millions into nation building foreign aid.

I love micronations. A friend of mine has declared the interior of his car to be an independent nation. He figures that if he ever gets a ticket, the paperwork will constitute an implicit recognition of its status.



Shawnee123  Saturday Nov 14 10:00 AM

I have found my people.

Do they have snacks, do you think?



Sperlock  Saturday Nov 14 11:56 AM

Some people have way too much free time.



xoxoxoBruce  Saturday Nov 14 12:26 PM

They're in your neighborhood, aren't they Sperlock?



Gravdigr  Saturday Nov 14 03:35 PM

Is Sperlock referring to them or us?



Sperlock  Saturday Nov 14 06:30 PM

I'm referring to them, and yeah, they are relatively close to me. I could probably be there in under an hour.



Elspode  Saturday Nov 14 07:53 PM

I have an entire Oligarchy in my pants. Souvenir pictures are free.

Either that, or when the first Barnes and Noble opened up in their country they bought a dictionary and discovered that Sovereignty and Communism don't exactly go hand in hand.


chrisinhouston  Sunday Nov 15 06:57 PM

The first lady has ample bosom!



xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Nov 15 08:33 PM

Yeah, but our First Lady has toned arms and fashion sense.



Shawnee123  Sunday Nov 15 08:35 PM

Our first lady is smart and classy and beautiful! Plus, she has toned arms and fashion sense!

The Government of the Republic of Molossia is proud to introduce our new First Lady, Adrianne Marie McFitzhenry Boubacar DiBianca. Mme. Adrianne is the consort of His Excellency, The President. The President met Mme. Adrianne a month ago, on 21 September 2009 XXXII, and was immediately taken with her. Shortly thereafter, His Excellency asked Mme. Adrianne to be his companion, elevating her to the position of First Lady just a few short days later, an honor Mme. Adrianne readily accepted.
Wow. That has to be some pickup line. "Excuse me, would you like to be my first lady? The country needs you.":p

Really? I have determined that me and my personal space is sovereign, and all threats to it are an offense! I might start writing tickets to offenders of my sovereign nation.:p My nation is roaming. The first of it's kind. (outside of your friend that also appears to have a roaming micro-nation)


Tawny  Monday Nov 16 04:15 PM

My declare my pussy sovereign.

I think Cambridge University is similar.

IIRC, there is a rule at Cambridge that all professors must be in residence at all times, except very limited leave holidays. It being impossible to do this in the modern academic world with conferences and furloughs etc, they got around it by declaring that Cambridge university is present wherever a Cambridge professor is. So I have, threfore, visited Cambridge.
