Originally founded in 1977 as the Grand Republic of Vuldstein, The Republic of Molossia is a micronation run by Kevin Baugh. It lies just outside Virginia City, Nevada in the western United States. It is run humorously as a dictatorial banana-republic with Baugh operating as president. Kevin Baugh continues to pay property taxes on the land although he calls it ‘foreign aid’.
