Micronational Expo 2005 - now open!
The Faronian Government was immensely pleased this afternoon to unveil the 2005 Micronational Exposition. The idea for the expo was conceived in late February, with the Kingdom of Faronia volunteering to host, and on April 10, once every participating nation had completed their "pavilion," the King of Faronia, who handles Faronia's web development, began to work assembling the expo itself.
The Micronational Expo is a sort of World Fair for micronations. All micronations are invited to participate by creating a "pavilion" webpage that showcases their micronation, and the host nation will then create a main expo page with links to each of the pavilions. The very first expo was hosted by Kevin Baugh and his Republic of Molossia several years ago. A year later, the second expo was hosted by Attera. However, after that, the expo took a bit of a hiatus, as activity levels in micronationalism generally began to fall. In 2005, though, plans for the '05 expo began when King Carson of Faronia eagerly volunteered Faronia to host at M-N.N.
A good number of nations are participating this year: the Northern Forest Archipelago, Molossia, Aremihc Island, Toaka, Natopia, The Domain and Realms, Dewaco Estates, Faronia, and Hanover. The King of Faronia and others have expressed great admiration for all of the pavilions, which can of course be viewed at the expo.
All micronationalists are encouraged to swing by and take a look at the expo, which can be found at http://expo2005.cjb.net.
