Thats what Kevin Baugh did, and now hes the dictator of the Republic of Molossia, a tiny country that consists only of his house and yard in Reno, Nevada.
Molossia has a population of four Baughs family uses the Valora as currency, has a national instrument called the molossaphone, which is a trumpet-shaped kazoo, and lists cookie dough as the national food.
His Excellency, President Baugh, explains, We are a very proud, little country. We get tourists who think were just a house on the street, but I put on my military uniform and give them a personal tour of the country.
Like other countries, Molossia has seen times of war, battling the fake nation of Mustachistan and its leader Sultan Ali-Ali Achsenfree in 2006, but Baugh says Molossia trounced them mightily.
Though President Baugh says he rules with a velvet glove wrapped around an iron fist, hes actually a nice dictator who takes good care of his people and doesnt shoot anyone.
