JOSHLAND

Wednesday, February 25, 2009



I want to start a micronation, just like Sealand - a sovereign and occupied former naval fort located several miles off the coast of the UK. There is actually a rich history of micronations, such as:

Rose Island
Conch Republic (Key West)
Minerva
Hay-on-Wye

Plus many, many other examples. Interestingly, Sealand was recently associated with a possible appropriation by ThePirateBay.net, after Sweeden's internet laws limited their ability to service online torrents - althought it seems that the deal fell through, keeping Sealand's original nationhood in-tact.

Also, just in case I plan to visit a few micronations before founding my own, lucky me, there's already a Lonely Planet Guide Book. Oh, but first I need to get my passport and currency in order. And definitely some good travel reading.

See you at Joshland.
