The author is enamoured with a cult/near children's level fiction genre, is at times a completely amoral/antisocial kook genre APA editor and gives us a tour de force of his nearly complete intellectual illegitimacy with this tome. Everything he touches is flaky or vicious/antisocial discussion tactics. I deplore the anti-semetic remark another derogatory reviewer employed, but this author is alienated minority thinking/ethics, sometimes at its worst. Unless you are a pathetic kook like most of The Connection, or a pathetic arrested development case like most hardcore SF fans, ignore this author solely on the basis of his content. Even the former should avoid this one on the basis of his unethical/self-pitying/alienated/vicious discussion tactics as well. The (Libertarian) Connection is finally dying off for lack of interest. Why does this have to stay in print?

Establishing a micronation is step one in my plan for global domination. This book has provided me with several helpful tips, useful resources, and case studies. Just kidding - it's a fun book though.

"How to start your own country" is written by Erwin S. Strauss. The publisher is Paladin Press, some kind of martial arts outlet. The book contains short descriptions of various attempts to create new countries. Groups covered include right-wing militia groups, libertarian idealists, role-playing game enthusiasts, illegal radio broadcasters (one in Sweden) and fake nations with their own stamps and currency. You may already be familiar with Occussi-Ambeno and New Atlantis, but what about Castellania or Kingdom of West Antarctica? Or "Atlantis kaj Lemuria", presumably a fictitious Esperanto nation?

Unfortunately, the book is badly edited and contains a number of factual errors and deliberate distortions. Thus, the author claims that the Paris Commune was a local affair in a bohemian district of Paris! Since it's common knowledge that the Commune was a massive popular uprising in all of Paris, I can only conclude that Strauss is distorting the facts deliberately. Further, he claims that Karl Marx was a bank robber. Nor does he know that the Turkish republic of Northern Cyprus is a real independent nation - albeit only recognized by Turkey (and for a short period, Bangladesh).

Among all the worthless information, there is really only one interesting section: the one about Michael J. Oliver, a mercenary type with libertarian ideas whose attempts to create an independent nation went from the farcical to the sinister. He attempted to create "the republic of Minerva" on a reef in the South Pacific. The Minerva reefs were submerged under water, but Oliver had them filled with sand and thus created an entirely new island, only to be unceremoniously ousted by a warship from nearby Tonga. Later, the entire island was destroyed by tides. In contrast to many other enthusiasts for new countries, Oliver actually learned something from his failure, and his new activities were directed at aiding right-wing separatists fighting left-wing governments. When the New Hebrides became independent in 1980, a separatist movement at the island of Espiritu Santu staged an armed rebellion, apparently with the support of French planters and...Oliver's Phoenix Foundation! In the end, the rebels turned out to have little support, and the insurgency was squashed by troops from Papua New Guinea. (It seems Oliver cannot even hold out against such "great powers" as Tonga and the PNG!)

Interesting.

But the rest of the book isn't. Frankly, the author should be extradited somewhere. To a new country, perhaps?

Although a bit outdated, this book is a very good read. It has either a very blatant tongue-in-cheek tone, or is dead serious. In any case, the book clearly explains how one can go about starting their own country. It explains the pros and cons of each method. The book also has a listing of examples of micronations and other attempts at independence, including the classic Sealand. The only drawback really is its outdatedness. The book could use a huge update or complete rewriting that would omit all the obsolete information that still appears within the book, notably the dangers associated with construct nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons and threatening to deploy them.
Ballalune
This book contains very outdated information from the 1970s and early 80s. While it has a good value as a historic information it lacks in more practical ideas, i.e., *how* to start your own country, as the title suggests.

If you ever wanted to start your own country this is a good book to start with. It tells the reader the steps that should be taken if you want a successful country. I found it to be a good learning experience.

This book was very entertaining. I dont think the age mattered very much. It was confusing at parts, but over all a great read. Very little seemed outdated.
