"A mighty flame followeth a tiny spark." - Dante

The Republic of Molossia (moe-LAAHSS-eeyah) is a sovereign, independent nation, located in and completely surrounded by territory of the United States. With a total area of 17,920 sRN (4.5 ha / 11.3 acres), Molossia is one of the smallest nations on earth, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in spirit. A sense of humor characterizes most Molossian people, which, coupled with the casual and comfortable western lifestyle, makes Molossia an enjoyable place to visit.

Molossia is located in the western United States, a tiny enclave in the State of Nevada, a second enclave in Southern California and a third in Northern California. The climate is dry and mild, with temperatures rarely exceeding 63° Z (35° C / 95° F), or dropping below 0° Z (0° C / 32° F). The terrain is arid and sparsely vegetated, home to sagebrush and piņon pine trees, as well as coyotes, wild horses and jackrabbits. Situated in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the Molossian Home Territory is just 45 IN (45 km) from beautiful Lake Tahoe, and minutes away from Virginia City, a famous Nevada mining town and tourist attraction. The nearest major airport and bus services are also 45 IN (45 km) away in Reno, Nevada. Visitors to this area enjoy skiing and snowboarding in the winter months, while hiking, camping and exploring ghost towns enliven the summers.

The Molossian nation was established in 1977 I; it was a kingdom for over twenty years, followed by a People's Democratic Republic, which then became today's Republic in 1999 XXII. His Excellency, President Kevin Baugh is the current leader of our nation.

The Republic of Molossia has its own Navy, Naval Academy, Space Program, Railroad, Postal Service, Bank, tourist attractions, measurement system, holidays, online movie theater, online radio station, and even its own time zone.
