I was going to write a really long, involved post about how to start your own country. Honest. But it turns out that a lot of people have already written a lot of great stuff on how to start your own country. So for the purposes of brevity and intellectual honesty, I’ll just link to them and provide some commentary.
Instructions and Resources for Starting Your Own Country
- Wikihow Article on How to Start Your Own Country– Short, sweet, and it has pictures.
- A Video on Starting Your Own Country from Seeker Daily– A good, succinct overview of the steps needed, and some of the modern micronations.
- BBC Comedic Documentary on Starting a Micronation– I haven’t seen it, but I suspect this will be in the ‘what not to do’ column.
- A PDF of the book, ‘How to Start Your Own Country’, by Erwin S. Strauss.– I read this book about 20 years ago, from the old Loompanics mail-order book company. It’s what got me interested in micronations in the first place. A great read.
And, as a bonus….
So, those are the resources I have for starting your own country. Did I miss anything? Any that you’d care to suggest? Please let me know in the comments.
