A DJ from San Diego, who has visited 193 countries recognized by the United Nations, decided to base his country in the middle of the California desert.
“I’ve seen incredible places that not many people have had the opportunity to discover. What was waiting for me next was creating my own country,” Randy “R Dub” Williams said in an interview with Fox 5 TV.
baptized in saljastanThis country, which is clearly not approved by the UN, has its own laws, many of which are rather eccentric.
For example, it is forbidden to wear “Crocs” shoes, eat your Ficello without straining him and listen to “mysterious rap”.
While driving, you cannot drive in the left lane, unless you want to overtake a car.
Randy Williams, who calls himself the “Sultan” of his nation, even designed his own passport that he says has been stamped by 16 other countries. Slowjastan’s founder also claims that 5,000 people have signed up to become citizens.
The latter founded his country on 4.5 hectares of land that he bought in 2021. He even invented a national anthem called “Slogamastan (I think it will be a great place)”, or in French: “Slogamastan (I think it will be a great place.)
The fictional country has its own currency, the dual currency, a reference to the Russian ruble.
As for the existing political system, Randy Williams considers it a dictatorship that sometimes turns into a democracy.
“Some days we are a republic,” he says, “but other days we have a dictatorship.” “I am a great leader who dictates the laws, but sometimes we let the community have a say in issues that concern Slugamastanis.”
There is no infrastructure in the country, but its leader plans to build solar panels, an armadillo farm, and a Mongolian barbecue restaurant.
Slugamastan is not the only micronation recognized by any other country in the world. There are about 70 of them on the planet, including a few in Canada.
