Top Ten Insane Facts About Molossia

The Top Ten

1 The Republic of Molossia was established by Kevin Baugh in 1977, and is situated at his home near Dayton, Nevada. It has a total area of 0.0053 square kilometers and a population of 34, including dogs.

The entire "country" is simply Baugh's back yard. However, passport and customs laws apply. So it might be easier to just walk around it. - PositronWildhawk

2 Molossia claims that it is a sovereign nation, however it is not recognised as a country by the UN or any major government.

I can see why. - Metal_Treasure

3 In 1983, Molossia declared war on East Germany. The reason for this is that while Baugh was serving in the US military in West Germany, the drills cost him sleep. The war is ongoing despite the fact that East Germany no longer exists.

Ostdeutschland existiert nicht mehr, so warum der Krieg ist nicht zu Ende?! (East Germany does not exist anymore, so why the war does not end?! ) - BorisRule

4 An online petition is in circulation to turn Molossia into a communist state. As of March 2019, this has 55 signatures, which is in excess of the Molossian population.

Obviously some of the dogs signed more than once. - Metal_Treasure

The revolution isn't over yet, comrades. I'll gladly move there to establish an anarcho-communist commune to fuel the flames of the world revolution... together with Comrade Baugh. - Bolshoy_Brat

5 Molossia has banned a number of bizarre things from its land, such as tobacco, walruses, onions and incandescent light bulbs.
6 The monetary value of Molossia's currency, the Velora, is directly tied to the market value of a certain brand of cookie dough. This cookie dough is the national food, and is served to natives and visitors.

Pfft, why use dough currency when you can just barter for micro-state economy? - Bolshoy_Brat

Molossia also has a national cocktail: the Mossolini. - PositronWildhawk

7 You can only legally buy and consume alcohol after the 3rd Tuesday of the 2nd month after the 1st Vernal Equinox after your 21st birthday, with variations allowed if you were born on the other side of the IDL or on Leap Day, unless it was full moon.

Sorry? Can you please repeat that? - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

8 All visitors to Molossia must contact the president in advance before visiting, stating the number of people coming, in which case they are greeted with open arms. Those who turn up unannounced may be shot.
9 Molossia has an official state cemetery for its dogs.
10 Molossia advocates the right for free healthcare, and actively supports abortion and assisted suicide, in spite of the complete lack of hospitals and medical professionals in the state.

A perfect healthcare plan, with just one minor drawback.
