Bjorn Socialist Republic

Here is another little micro-nation. This one is right in Sweden and its leader is President Oskar Augustsson. I have to smile when I learn that there is zero population and it is only 6 sq.m. It is located on a stone that is shaped like a tractor. This tiny socialist state can be found near Bos Islands and does not recognize Swedish laws. It has its own hymn. This tiny place got noticed when Sweden refused to recognize a marriage between two citizens who tied the knot on the tiny rock. It claims to be the smallest republic in the world. Now isn’t that the oddest thing you ever heard? Google image that really tells it like it is.

What I am wondering is what kind of salary the President gets @Kandae11

That is so funny. Strange indeed for a tiny rock to be a republic.

@vandana7 That island would make a nice little vacation spot if one wants to be alone for a period of time.
