The world’s newest country; only 7 square kilometers

A Czech named Vít Jedlicka has declared himself the president of Europe’s youngest country, which he formed on April 13 with the name ‘Liberland,’ and the motto “to live and let live.”

The country is located on the west bank of the Danube river between Croatia and Serbia, on land which has been subject to a decades-long border dispute and therefore, according to Jedlicka, a ‘terra nuillius’ or no man’s land, before the institution of his state on Monday.

President Jedlicka is in the process of writing the country’s constitution, which, in keeping with the country’s name, “significantly limits the power of politicians so they could not interfere too much in the freedoms of the Liberland nation.”
….

The new state has already roused the interest of prospective migrants from neighboring countries in its forums, who have inquired about life in Liberland, including what the official language will be, and “is there a national anthem?”

Also, there is a offical web page of Liberland and people can apply for becoming citizen of Liberland. At the forum of Liberland’s web page, there are those who claimed himself as vice president or ministers.:) Even, there are even those who have already attacked their borders already now and to fight between them. I guess, as far as I can see at forum pages, it seems it will continue in a short time with dividing as 3 and 4 square kilometers .:)

  1. That’s very interesting! I was reading Ian Fleming’s Live and Let Die the other night and I got to the part where the title comes up. One character says, “live and let live,” but Bond says, “live and let die.” Also, such a complex region around Croatia and Serbia. Similar language, but with one in Cyrilic. And now the possibility of a Russian-Serbian pipeline into Europe to bypass Ukraine.

    • Yes, it looks like similar Russian, also they wrote in citizenship requirements they wouldn’t get ones, who have old communist or nazi at past, what a dilemma:) And being between Croatia and Serbia shows that there is never-ending exciting, haha. As if you said Russian-Serbian pipeline pass into this soil dear pauly, 1/3 country soil disappears, it remains about 5 square kilometres:)
