The smallest country in the world

Molossia, also known as the self-proclaimed Republic of Molossia, is a micronation, founded by Kevin Baugh and headquartered solely from his home near Dayton, Nevada. The Republic of Molossia has claimed itself a nation but it is not officially 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, as well as 1.3 acres (5,000 m2) of surrounding property, enclaved by Nevada. It formerly claimed a property in Pennsylvania as well. Originally established as a childhood project in 1977, Molossia subsequently 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 that the ancient Illyrian tribe of Molossians is unrelated.Snap55293624_180
