Midwest Slacker: The Kingdom of Talossa

The Kingdom of Talossa is a Micronation situated on the East Side of Milwaukee. Yep, a whole 'nother country. The US government has never complained about it, so it can only be assumed that they are a-okay with it.

It was founded, as the story goes, sometime in 1979 by a 13-year-old kid, who declared his bedroom to be his own personal kingdom. Through out the years, Talossa has annexed most of the East Side, and gained about one hundred citizens. It has also laid claim to UWM, renaming it the University of Talossa. This glorious micronation's history is not without strife, however, as some succeded to form the Republic of Talossa.

I'm not kidding.
