Short-and-sweet:

If Kevin Baugh can get his acre of land declared a sovereign country of it's own, I say UG can too. What about, rather than buying a missile silo, UG buys a few acres of land in Hell, Michigan(Or Sparta, New Jersey) and makes it a country?

Double Edit: Location has now changed since we don't have the funds to buy somewhere in Sparta or Hell. Instead, each citizen may declare property they own as a province, and each citizen who does such becomes a governor. Such is the boundaries of the UPP.

Edit; Alright, some current basic ideas for laws, let us know if you want any new ones.

~All the basics. No murder, no theft, etc.
~To become a citizen, you merely need to join the UPP(United Provinces of The Pit) group and/or declare what property you own a province.
~Provinces are governed by whoever declares it a province, who has local dominion over that province and the citizens of that province.
~The Emperor-President governs over the provinces.
~The government is run with a parliamentary democracy, electing a new/re-electing the Emperor-President, if there is no vote of no confidence, every two years.
~$1 is Clapton, $3 is Costello, $5 is Zoso, $10 is Hendrix, $20 is Petrucci, $50 is a windmilling Pete Townshend, $94 is Wayne Campbell, and $100 is the Wizard of Waukesha.
~The Emperor-President must also appoint a surgeon general, a vice-Emperor-President, a speaker of the house, a minister of foreign affairs and a lead officer of military affairs when making their campaign.
~Every month, there will be a State Of The UPP chat meeting between cabinet members, governors, and the Emperor-President, to discuss what to do at the time and what current issues face the UPP.
~The following people are, by decree of founding Emperor-President Neccy, banned from the United Provinces of The Pit;
Fred Phelps and all other members of the Westboro Baptist Church
Any sorts of Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists or Religious Extremists.
Glenn Beck
Sarah Palin
Kate Gosslyn
Jay Leno
Whoever invented DRM
Every member of the RIAA
Every member of the PMRC
Most members of WMG
Indoor tanning and spray-on tan places
Al Sharpton
Nancy Pelosi
Dick Cheney

I think that you can do that in the UK too. Some guy made a TV show about turning his flat into a country but I don't know how he did it...

Also, why substitute when we can have both!

Hell, Michigan, or Sparta, New Jersey (there's also a Sparta in Wisconsin, I believe)....... such a tough choice...

In recent years the various micronation-themed art installations and landscaping projects that Baugh has constructed around his home have begun to attract the interest of some outside Molossia,[6] to the extent that up to 10 tourists now visit annually.

I wonder. Like who do you go to for that lol

*Walks up to parliament*

''Yeah, ummm, I'd like to declare my property a micronation, is there like some sort of registration fee, if yes I'd like to pay by Visa. Oh and if you could fill me in on any paperwork I might have to go through, thanks''

This; what exactly would we have to do? Also, I'm 15; I have no idea what land and property costs.

No idea. I just know it's possible. I feel like Baugh may be willing to answer if an email is sent though.

I could see myself sending a letter or something to some sort of department who handles land.


That's as far as my knowledge extends lol

Molossia's military consists of 3 inflatable boats and two "Naval Infantrymen" armed with rifles from 1857. It, like the rest of Molossia, is not recognized as an official military.

Hell, Michigan! We can make the address/area code/ZIP or something 666.

And it is close to the homes of several UGers.

See, if we buy some land, and a shovel or two, some steel and some concrete, I'm pretty sure we can build our own missile silo.

Beat you to it.

Also, why invade, when we can form an alliance; we will unite all micronations!

That's the one! I forgot his name but I do recall him looking like the old Blue Peter presenter and current Sky Sports News reporter.

Wow, they do look quite similar.

Though Danny Wallace is lovely whereas that bloke always comes across as a bit of a dick. I can imagine him doing coke off Meg the dog's back then fucking Konnie Huq against the Blue Peter boat.

No, Jersey sucks!


Wait.

New Jersey is Hell.

So if we do it in New Jersey, we get hell and Sparta!

Decision made.

I admit to going to a diner in Sparta and yelling "Tonight we dine in hell!".


You are now my secretary of foreign affairs when we form this nation for that.

+2, might as well kill 2 birds with one stone, and I'm game for either Sparta or Hell. I would prefer that it be in a place named Hell, but I'm a lot closer to Sparta.

As long as we're naming positions, I call Head of Spec. Ops for the Military.

Dig deep enough, and we'd get pretty close to hell, right?
#34
I think we should eventually try to expand to own land in every Sparta and Hell in the US (I know there's more than one Sparta), as well as whatever other cities and counties have funny names (Mianus, anybody?). However, for now, Sparta sounds good to me. There's one in New Jersey, and I'm pretty sure there's one in Wisconsin.
#35
Ooooh, this could be very interesting. Can I be head of military?


Who knows, if 4chan or other forums get wind of this, we might have ourselves a war between micronations...

This is awesome.
I've always wondered how to do it because it'd be sweet.
But would we still have to live by U.S. laws?
I've been wondering about this too; I'm going to try to do a little research, and find out just what a micronation really is. I've heard about them before, and there's actually quite a few in the world, but I think we should actually know what we're doing.
