Zevenetz ‘n Erteier!
Azul, prospective Talossan!
(See, now you know how to say “Hello” in Talossan already!)
Becoming a Talossan is so easy it’s almost funny. The immigration process begins by filling out an application form, which is sent off to the Interior Minister. The form asks of you a few simple questions (like who and where you are, and why you want to become a Talossan) and verifies that you are a real person. (It is totally easy; kind of like the three questions required to cross the Bridge of Death in Monty Python and the Holy Grail — “What is your name?” “What is your quest?” “What is your favourite colour?”)
Once we have the form, the Ministry of the Interior will contact you and guide you on the next step. You will be introduced to the current citizenry, and a minimum of 15 days later, if you have shown yourself to be someone who will be an active and interested Talossan, a current citizen is sure to petition the King beseeching him to grant you citizenship. The rest is the history you will help us write.
Why do I love Talossa?
“Talossa is so humorously eccentric, and impossible to explain to outsiders; a collection of people of all types with all sorts of interests, speaking all kinds of mother tongues (but not sufficient speaking our national language); a set of bizarre laws and means of government; a source of outside-the-box ideas and activities – what’s not to like?”– Ián Tamorán S.H.
As our nation’s Website shows, there’s a lot of stuff to do in Talossa. Politics, language, music, sport… and most of all, just plain fun. We’re not just a nation of laws, we are a nation of people. Talossa is a way of thinking. Talossa is a culture.
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 is your invitation to come and join with us to build a unique and fascinating nation. Come join us.
WARNING: Talossa can be habit-forming. But it’s a good habit. You know, like breathing.
What Talossa means to me:
“A do-it-yourself ethnic community and experiment in practical democracy. I’ve been involved for 23 years and I simply can’t tear myself away. Once a Talossan, always Talossan.”– Miestrâ Schivâ, UrN.
What do you say? If you say Yes, or even if you say Maybe, fill out an application and shoot it off to the Interior Minister to indicate your interest.
What are you waiting for??
Really. I mean it. What are you waiting for??
My Favorite Talossan memory:
“June 2002 – My first haxh and getting off the plane and onto the jetway at Mitchell Field. I had, in the two years prior, heard so much about Milwaukee; I felt right at home.”– Gödafrïeu Válcadác’h.
