Republic of Slowjamastan

The Republic of Slowjamastan claims to be a sovereign nation: an entirely separate country from the USA!

[Alex, 06/22/2022]

The large Republic of Slowjamastan sign was erected next to Hwy 78 in November 2021. Ruled by His Excellency Supreme Sultan Randy "R Dub!" Williams, the micronation covers 11.07 acres of roadside desert. Visas are required for entry, and can be issued online for those who promise to never "wear Crocs inside The Republic, listen to mumble rap, or drive in the passing lane while not passing."
