There are hundreds of countries around the world. Have you ever heard of the Conch Republic? Is an area of only 15.4 square kilometers of the country, also is one of the smallest country in the world, is “China” in the United States, although so far has not admitted by the United States and the world, its independent way are quite “exotic”, powerful, such as the United States, the “nation” are turning a blind eye.
“Conch” republic of China is established on the basis of the United States in a city called key west, Florida, is the southernmost city in the United States, the area of 15.4 square kilometers, surrounded by sea in all directions on April 23, 1982, when the city’s mayor declared its independence from the United States, known as the conch republic “, have their own national emblem, COINS, Declare April 23 every year as its National Day, until now the local residents are still from this country. It’s just the unrecognized “China” of the United States, so why does the city want to be independent? Why doesn’t the US step in to stop this?
In 1982, because the key west, distance very just off the coast of Cuba, so here is a’s migrants, many dealers also through here into the continental United States, so the government in order to avoid this phenomenon, and set up checkpoints in that place, to detect traffic and pedestrians, to key west, the citizens of life caused great influence, That hurt their interests, so the local mayor asked the government to remove the barrier, but was refused.
Angry, the mayor held a meeting of top leaders in the city, after everyone unanimously approved, decided to secede from the United States, declared independence, and took over the navy and army stationed in the city, and asked the United States government to provide them with 1 billion dollars in compensation, to rebuild their “country”. This is the country’s “independence” story, isn’t it funny? Pretty weird? And the U.S. government has not responded to this situation.
It is said that the American military once launched an attack on it, and the local people also took up “bread” and “water gun” to resist, starting their one-minute “war of independence”. But a minute later they announced their unconditional surrender. You call that a “country”? In the end, the U.S. government had no choice but to agree to the mayor’s request to remove the roadblock.
Conch republic is said to have been approbated by Switzerland, India and other countries, think it is has an independent sovereign country, but it is not recognized by the United States, so it is no use, must be in their own territory are not allowed to exist in other countries, or directly start early, I think 10000 of these countries have not played in the United States
