Molossia the Micronation

I've been asked a couple of times in my history classes what my favorite country is. Jokingly, I would always say that Molossia was my favorite. Of course I would get a few weird looks and sideways glances, and a couple of people have even asked me “Where's Molossia??” Well, I’m afraid Molossia is closer to us than you’d think. It's actually located in Nevada. Even though Molossia is an independent nation, it is called a micronation. A micronation is an entity that claims to be an independent nation or state but isn’t recognized as an official nation by other countries and governments. You may have heard of other micronations such as The Principality of Wy, Principality of Sealand, and the Republic of Kugelmugel. -Brooke Peyton
