It’s a ‘no mans land’ between Serbia and Croatia, and Czech politician Vit Jedlicka last week declared it to be the real world’s newest country.
It’s 2.7 sq.km in size….and yet has received over 200,000 applications for citizenship already.
I urge you to follow the link and read the full story, it’s a delight in a world where nationalist tensions and racial hatred abound.
The nation’s own website can be found here including a full constitution. There’s already a wikipedia page for this new nation!
What has this got to do with Second Life? Everything! If you read the story, if you chase the links, this is Second Life in real life, as far as I’m concerned.
So much so that I’m determined to see if we could establish a Liberland Embassy in Second Life. A quasi-virtual country with it’s own embassy in a virtual world. It seems perfect to me.
Granted…the Embassy does need to be clothing optional. Naturists would have full equal rights within the Embassy grounds. 😉
If any of you bloggers, sim owners or anyone else would like to see if we can approach Liberland, recognising their sovereignty, and setting up the Liberland Embassy in Second Life, please get in touch with Ella or myself and I’ll try to argue our case to the President, Mr. Jedlicka. 🙂
