new country

Citizens required for new country

Well it hasn't got a name and I don't like the flag and the citizenship ceremony is a bit conventional. You have to swear loyalty to King Danny I.

If you're going to start a new country, it should be a bit more radical.

So I propose the People's Republic of the Blogosphere. This would naturally be an anarchic collective. To be a citizen, all you have to do is have a blog and display the flag of the blogosphere on your blog. There is no citizenship ceremony. Foreign policy consists of being nice to people for a change. If you feel like it, you could even work towards world peace and stuff. Immigration policy is also no problem - there's plenty of room in cyberspace. Defence policy would be purely electronic - probably trying to eliminate spam comments on your blog, and spam-blogs (the ones that consist entirely of adverts for products). Official religion: none - all religions that acknowledge the validity of other religions would be welcome. The Kabbalah of the Blogosphere has already been worked out.
