Indian forum: Other - Man forms tiny European nation

With the advent of modern
communication and means of
travel, it seems unlikely there is
any area of the world left
unclaimed by one nation or
another. But such land does, or
in fact did exist within Europe,
and one man has just made his
claim to it and created a brand
new European nation.
The man in question is former
Czech Vit Jedlicka. He is now the
president of the Free Republic of
, which is a 7km2 stretch of land
on the west bank of the Dunube
river between Serbia and Croatia.
It is actually disputed land by the
Serbian and Croatian
governments, neither currently
own it, and therefore it was
classed as no man’s land.
Liberland already has a website,
a flag, a coat of arms, and a
moto: “To live and let live.” It’s
also proving very popular.
Jedlicka and his team of
volunteers put out the call for
5,000 people to become a part of
the new nation, but registrations
for those limited citizenships
have surpassed 160,000. Now a
team of seven volunteers are
slowly sifting through those
registrations attempting to select
the best candidates.
The idea of a new nation came
into existence originally as a
political stunt and protest
because Jedlicka was a member
of the Party of Free Citizens in the
Czech Republic. At some point,
however, it became real and
support grew to the point where
it made sense to go ahead and
form the nation. As to the reason
for its popularity, it’s probably
down to Jedlicka stating that
anyone living there won’t be
oppressed by the government. It
sounds like a great tax haven
already, doesn’t it?
Liberland, although young, isn’t
without its problems. Apparently
the land was already claimed by
another new nation called
Paraduin. It’s unclear how this
will be worked out, but two of
the smallest nations in the world
may actually be at war soon over
a few kilometers of land nobody
had really heard about until last
