“successor to the Grand Republic of Vuldstein”
Molossia, also known as the self-proclaimed Republic of Molossia, is a micronation in the United States, founded by Kevin Baugh (b. July 30, 1962) and headquartered at his home in Dayton, Nevada. The Republic of Molossia has claimed itself a nation but it is not recognized as a country by the United Nations or any country. It consists of Baugh's house (known as the Government House), about 0.01 acres (40 m2) in size, and 1.3 acres (5,000 m2) of surrounding property, enclaved by Nevada. It used to claim a property in Pennsylvania as well. Molossia was established as a childhood project in 1977, and evolved into a territorial entity in the late 1990s. The name Molossia is derived from the Spanish word morro which means "small rocky hill". Baugh has stated the ancient Greek tribe of Molossians is unrelated.On September 3, 1999, Baugh created the Republic of Molossia as a successor to a childhood make-believe kingdom called "the Grand Republic of Vuldstein", and declared himself to be its president. On November 13, 2012, Baugh created a petition on the WhiteHouse.gov We the People website requesting recognition of the micronation. However, his petition did not gain enough signatures for recognition. On April 11, 2015, Baugh hosted Micro-Con 2015 in Anaheim Central Library in California. Micro-Con was created to attract media attention to the micronational world.
