Welcome to the Kingdom of Talossa! Benvenescu àl Regipäts Talossan!
The Kingdom of Talossa is an independent, sovereign nation in North America, which seceded peacefully from the United States in 1979 (but we’re not sure the United States noticed). Our Kingdom is located on the western shore of La Mar Talossan (Lake Michigan), surrounded by the U.S. city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but today most of our active citizens live in other parts of the United States and Canada, Europe, South America, Australia and New Zealand, Asia, and Africa.
Talossans cherish and enjoy their own unique (some would say “quirky”) culture. At any given moment, you can find citizens of the Kingdom actively exercising their linguistic skills to learn, use, and nurture the beautiful Talossan language, honing their skills in the ancient arts of heraldry, putting on pompous airs to serve the nation in its legislative, judicial, executive, or royal offices, enjoying the performing arts, planning and running political parties (and the other kind of parties, too!), delving into the rich history of the nation, and doing any number of other things that they haven’t found themselves able to do for any “real” nation.
Talossa is a constitutional monarchy, headed by an apolitical King, and governed by a democratically elected Government. We invite all persons worldwide to become Talossan citizens and participate in our ongoing political and social adventure. In Talossa, you can become anything, from the lowliest pauper to the Seneschal (Prime Minister) of the Kingdom. Learn to speak and write Talossan! Draft legislation and shepherd it through the Ziu (Parliament)! Design and register a Talossan Coat of Arms! Crack silly jokes on the Kingdom’s Internet forums! Make friends, share ideas, run for office, have fun! This home page is your invitation to come and join with us to build a unique and fascinating nation.
WARNING: Talossa can be habit-forming. But it’s a good habit. You know, like breathing.
