The Republic of Molossia is pleased to announce the advent of our new National Anthem, “Fair Molossia Is Our Home”. For the past 15 years our anthem has been “Molossia, Nation In The Desert”, with music composed by Ciprian Porumbescu and lyrics written by His Excellency, President Kevin Baugh. While a stirring piece of music, it is better known as the national anthem of Albania, and over the years there have been significant complaints from Albanian citizens over our borrowing of their anthem. Thus in December 2013 XXXVI a search was launched for a new anthem, and eventually the music chosen was a magnificent piece composed by Simon-Pierre Boka Di Mpasi Londi. Formerly the anthem of Zaïre, it is no longer in use and fits our needs nicely. Subsequently, lyrics were written by His Excellency, The President, drawing inspiration from the land and culture of Molossia, as well as from the song “The Impossible Dream (The Quest)”, “Ozymandias” by Percy Bysshe Shelley and “Home Means Nevada”, Nevada’s State Song. The result is a stirring national hymn, and anthem of which we can all be proud. Fair Molossia is indeed our home, strong, free and sovereign. Let us all extol its praises in song!


There's a place beneath the western sun,
A country proud, a nation next to none,
An oasis amid the desert sand,
Standing tall in this uncommon land.
From the mountains high down to the valleys wide,
Our flag of blue and white and green it ever flies,
Where hawks and mustangs roam,
Fair Molossia is our home.
Treasured land of wind and sage and mighty dreams,
Our country strong and free and proud, it reigns supreme,
Fair Molossia is our home,
Fair Molossia is our home.

Listen to our National Anthem here!
