Micronations - The guide to home-made nations

Author(s): George Dunford


Micronations takes a look at some of the most curious places on the planet. Designed to generate interest in the strange world out there, this is a fully illustrated, humorous mock-guidebook to the nations people create in their own backyards - most of which can be visited (for example, Sealand, an island off the coast of Britain; and Hutt River Province, which seceded from Western Australia in 1970). Bored of visiting the same UN-recognised countries? Ready to explore somewhere unique and perhaps a little wacky? Want to add some really rare stamps to your passport? Then let Lonely Planet's guide to home made nations take you to a bunch of places you've never heard of. Here are countries where the national athem is the sound of a rock being dropped into water, where the currency is pegged to the value of Pilsbury's cookie dough; where the citizens vote in a poodle as president and where if you're lucky, the king will put on a pot of tea when you stop by.
