Abhkazian flag
Republic of ABKHAZIA (Western region of [former Soviet] Georgia)

"Half a decade has gone by since the war in Abkhazia ended. Ever since then, Abkhazia has been isolated, blockaded, terrorized, and ignored. Neither the blockade, nor the sustained level of Georgian terrorism, nor the severing of communications could force the people of Abkhazia to surrender their hard-won freedom. After half a decade of de facto independence, in October 1999, Abkhazia held a referendum on independence, which passed by a large majority." - from the Republic of Abkhazia website

Upon proclaiming independence in 1991, Abkhazia issued postage stamps bearing the likenesses of Groucho Marx and John Lennon (instead of Karl Marx and V.I. Lenin). The stamp may be seen here or here.

Flag is from their website.

Seditionist website for a group consisting almost entirely of Arab Shi'ites seeking independence from Iran. Nearly all the website is in Arabic.
According to Jay Bohren:
"Some Arab Shi'ites on both sides of the Iran-Iraq border might decide now is the time for both sets to secede from their respective states and form a new Greater Arabistan around the mouths of the Two Rivers, with its capital at Basra. On the other hand, this war might give the Iranians the idea that all Shi'ite lands on their borders are theirs by right, regardless of the inhabitants' ethnicity. So far, none of the press coverage I've heard mentions either possibility."
According to a friend of mine who is fluent in Arabic and has perused the website:
"They claim a certain history, they count 8 millions, their country extends 375,000 Kms, it is boredered by mountains of Iran, by Iraq, and by the Arabian penisula. Actually, they claim the Shah of Iran and the British state fooled their ruling prince (After giving him promises which turned out false) and invaded the 'peaceful neighboring state' on April 20, 1925. I am omitting of course, the propagandist terms here."

Biafrain Flag
Republic of BIAFRA (Nigeria)
(Website maintained by the Biafra Actualization Forum [BAF])

The Republic of Biafra was proclaimed after the eastern region of Nigeria seceeded from the country in 1967. Despite being diplomatically recognized by Gabon, Haiti, Ivory Coast (Côte d'Ivoire), Tanzania, and Zambia, the secession led to a horrific civil war, where starvation was used as a weapon against the Biafrans. After a total of 1 million Biafrans died, the Biafran govermnent surrendered in 1970, and Biafra became a part of Nigeria once again.
On 1 September 2001, a clandestine shortwave radio station, "Voice of Biafra International" (broadcasting over transmitters in Tbilisskaya-Armavir, Russia) premired, proclaiming "Biafra is your right...Biafra is your hope."
The station is run by the Biafra Foundation (BF), Ekwe Nche and the Biafra Actualization Forum (BAF).
According to the website:
"Biafra Actualization Forum (BAF) was formed out of a real need to rescue Igbo people, land and culture from the merciless and brutal stranglehold of Nigeria, and accomplish this using peaceful means.
"BAF is in the process of applying for Non-Profit Organization status. BAF is also exploring the area of Non-governmental Organization (NGO) to discover if it is eligible.
"Currently, members of BAF are mostly Igbos in Diaspora (exile).
"BAF supports all persons, organizations and institutions who share the common goal of Biafra actualization using peaceful means."

"The CABINDA is a state located in Central Africa, bordered on North by the Republic of Congo, on East and South by the Democratic Republic of Congo, the last border, being the Atlantic Ocean itself. ...CABINDA is Territorial Entity recognized by the 1933 Constitution of Portugal, distinctively from Angola which is a former Portuguese colony, since the XVth Century.
"Therefore, it is obvious that CABINDA is really a State, and not an enclaved province as it is commonly believed. Objectively, CABINDA has no common border with Angola, a country which is occupying militarily and illegally CABINDA.
"Today, the Cabindese Refounders of the F.L.E.C. called their popular uprising the Front of Liberation of the State of CABINDA (F.L.E.C.). The Independentists refounding CABINDA settle their actions on the basis of the International Rights which autorise any Tenitory illegally occupied to submit their case to the United Nations Organization (U.N.O.), although it is not a Member, as clearly stipulated in the articles 33 and 34 of the UN Charter. In 1964, the Organization of African Unity (O.A.U.) classified CABINDA as the 39th State of Africa to be decolonized.

- fostering co-operation between Celtic peoples.
- developing the consciousness of the special relationship and solidarity between them.
- making our national struggles and achievements better known abroad.
- campaigning for a formal association of Celtic nations to take place once two or more of them have achieved self-government.

Christianian
Freetown of CHRISTIANIA (Copenhagen, Denmark)

Begun in 1970 on a former Danish army base by a brave group of hippie squatters (and still operating today), this autonomous zone, functioning under a direct participatory democratic government and its own curency, has survived almost everyone's expectations.
This website has a detailed history and photos of the self-proclaimed "free city", as well as a list of businesses operating there.
The Danish army still officially owns the buildings on the property, and all leases have been paid, but in recent months, there has been trouble between the Christianians and the Danish government. Despite the fact that Christiana has become a tourist attraction, apparent plans are to build condominiums on the property, driving out the current inhabitants. In order to prevent any further Danish intrusion after recent drug raids, the hashish and marijuana vendors on the famous "Pusher Street" have closed down and destroyed their stalls.

Third National Flag of the Confederacy
CS-Gov.org

"The new CSA, is not a resurrection or restoration, of the old CSA of 1862 - the old Confederacy died shortly sometime after 1865 when the United Stated invaded the old CSA and instituted a marshal law for the Confederate states for over 11 (official) years.
"The new CSA is a totally new nation, recognisable to traditionalists, because of its roots in the old CSA. Since no one to this day has the authority to resurrect, or restore the old CSA, we the citisens of the new CSA declare micro-nationality of a new and separate nation, separate from the old CSA.
"Since the new CSA is merely a new micro-nation, we are not a movement or country to overthrow or encourage sedition against any current governments that occupy our territory, as claimed by the old CSA, or its citisens.
"Currently the new CSA is in the re-education process. Our goal is to establish an active working government, and to educate not only descendants of Confederates, but also anyone who has the spark of the Confederate spirit and ideals (which is) freedom of State's and individual rights; and freedom from tyranny of 'elected' governments. In this day & age, elected officials are not the people that 'fit' the job, but rather the people that can 'buy' their way into the job. Therefore as that was one of the reasons for establishing the old CSA of 1862, we hereby establish the new CSA of the new millennium.

(Website maintained by Mr. Ernst F. Kriesner)

Danzig was a self-governing free state established by the Treaty of Versailles under the League of Nations in 1919. For 20 years, it flourished as a self-governing free city, consisting of a bustling port and 1955 sq. km (754 sq. mi.) of territory. It was invaded by Nazi Germany on 1 September 1939 and "annexed" into the Reich. It is now officially part of the city of Gdansk, Poland. This webpage seeks to gather aid and support of the people who are former Danzig citizens, as well as some sort of official recognition to the Danziger government that was never officially abolished.

INNER MONGOLIA (People's Republic of China)
(Website maintained by the Inner Mongolian People's Party, Princeton, NJ, USA)

"At the end of the W.W.II, Soviet-Mongolian joint army entered Inner Mongolia, in order to expel the Japanese army. After the war, despite the all 51 banners (county) of Inner Mongolia expressed their will to be independent, Joseph Stalin handed Inner Mongolia over to China according to the Yalta treaty. A few large cities remained in the control of Kuomintang (KMT) and the vast rural area of Inner Mongolia fell into Mao's Communist army after the Soviet-Mongolian army's withdrawal from Inner Mongolia. On May 01, 1947, the Chinese government declared the establishment of the Inner Mongolian Autonomous Region, after the PLA took control of the entire Inner Mongolia."
"During the cultural revolution (1966-1976), the Chinese government claimed that there was a counter-party (Chinese Communist Party), counter-revolutionary, counter-socialism party called 'Inner Mongolian People's Revolutionary Party' (IMPRP, 'Ovor Mongoliin Ardiin Khuvsgalt Nam' or 'Ovor Ardiin Nam') in Inner Mongolia. The Chinese government used this non-existent party as a pretext and under the name of 'dig-out' the IMPRP, launched a campaign of genocide against the Mongols in Inner Mongolia. The genocide campaign carried out by the Chinese Communist Party and the People's Liberation Army touched every Mongol's soul and body and resulted in unnatural death of more than 250,000 Mongols in Inner Mongolia (at the time, the Mongol population in Inner Mongolia was only about 1.5 million) .
"The establishment of the party and naming the party as the 'Inner Mongolian People's Party' is to show the Chinese government, as well as to our Mongol brothers and sisters that we, the post-IMPRP generation of the Inner Mongols, are taking the historical responsibility of telling the world the truth about the IMPRP and also to show our determination to fight for the freedom of our own land."

"The Government of New Zion, a sovereign nation, was created so long ago that there is no written record of it. It was created in Heaven by Almighty God himself. HE longed for HIS government to be placed here upon this earth so HE called out a chosen son from among humans. In 1993 Nicodemus was called out as an Apostle of God. Over the years God molded him into the leader HE wanted to rule over HIS kingdom. In 1997 God tapped Nicodemus to be King of New Zion here on Earth. In February of 2004 God introduced Nicodemus to his wife Zipporah. They were married in May of 2004. With the leaders of HIS kingdom now joined HE was able to use them to finish HIS kingdom here on Earth. In a revelation to King Nicodemus the First it was revealed the plan and desires pertaining to the country from God." - from the website

Seal of the NSK State

NSK State (Self-proclaimed Government At-Large)
(New URL!)

This "non-territorial" country, whose name is an abbreviation for "Neue Slowenische Kunst [New Slovenian Art]" was founded by a collective of Slovenian artist groups, including Department of Pure and Applied Philosophy, Irwin, Novi Kolektivizem (New Collectivism), Noordung, and the industrial music group Laibach.
(Laibach gained both fame and infamy when Slovenia was still part of Yugoslavia and under that country's Communist regime led by Josef Tito. They responded to the totilitarianism they lived under by being even more totilitarian in presence and performance. Because of this, they were frequently, and incorrectly, identified as being either fascists, Stalinists or Neo-Nazis, and were subjected to government harrassment. They still perform and record, and many of their recordings are available for sale.)
Information on NSK passports is available from their "electronic embassy".
During the Sarajevo Civil War, NSK passports were used by some officials as identification, and were accepted as valid by various factions.
To signal the beginning of the Dayton Accord, which brought about the end of the horriffic Sarajevo Civil War, NSK State opened a temporary "embassy" at the at the National Theatre in Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina on 20-21 November 1995 (similar to an event organized in Berlin, Germany in 1993). The musical group Laibach held a rock concert to a packed house in the theatre's auditorium. One of the concerts was carried live by national television.
According to the website: "Over the course of event the premises of the NSK State Sarajevo were visited by more than 5000 people. According to information from Sarajevo both evenings saw several hundred people turned away from the building. The same sources say that the event was the best-attended cultural event in Sarajevo since the beginning of the war.".
Full details of the event may be read here.

Village of ORANIA
(Republic of South Africa)

Not a seditionist movement, but a "whites-only" enclave in South Africa's Northern Cape province. Among the White Afrikaners living there is the the village's founder, Carel Boshoff, son-in-law of late prime minister Hendrik Verwoerd, the architect of South Africa's infamous apartheid policy.
The village, formerly known as Vluytjeskraal, was originally built on a developed farm but was later abandoned. The ghost town was put up for sale by the government in 1990 and purchased by members of the Afstig (the Afrikaner Freedom Movement). It is presently run by a company called Vluyteskraal Aandeleblok (Whistling Shareholders).
Recently, the village has established a local currency called the Ora. This has brought both attention and sarcasm to the community.
The concept of a "whites-only" community in de-segregated South Africa is not without harsh criticism.
The website is mostly in Afrikaans, but there are some English pages.

"I am from Montréal, the biggest city in Québec province. I was happy to see that Québec is part of the Sovereignty Projects & Governments-In-Exile section of your site. Unfortunately, you don't seem to have much information in english about the Québec Sovereign project.
"In Québec there is a political party called The Parti Québécois (that has been elected 2 times in a row (for a total of 8 years) but has been defeated in march 2003). One of their goal is to realize this project."
The reader suggests this English language FAQ on PQ's website.

RHODESIAN GOVERNMENT-IN-EXILE
(Zimbabwe, fomerly known as Rhodesia)

The following is taken verbatim from the website:
"Homeless, stateless, rudderless, brainless... Rhodesians have heard it all before, and have now decided to act decisively to ready themselves for a return to their proud status of yore (well, pre-1980 anyway), those heady days when the fledgling Rhodesian Empire was expanding and flexing its muscles, ready to play a leading role in world affairs as the newest souperpower, just before scurrilous Pommy, Slopey and Yankee politicians pulled the plug and turned it into a new Chocolate Nation...
"The Rhodesian Government in Exile is preparing for a return to power in the near future, and is forming a shadowy cabinet of bold, fearless men, ready to grab the reins when the time is ripe. If it cannot be done peacefully, we will return to the bush and wage a new Chimp-urenga, or Gorilla war."

Part satire, part protest. Definately not for the politically correct!

ROM
(Stateless Ancestry)
[DOM, GYPSIES, GYPSY, ROMA, ROMI, ROMANI, ROMANY, RROM, TRAVELERS]

Around the year 1000 C.E., members of India's Banjara tribe are believed to have migrated north to Europe, mingled with other tribes, and formed the people we know today as the Rom, commonly known as "Gypsies" (a corruption of "Egyptian", where they are known as "Dom").
During World War Two, the Rom were the only other race (besides the Jews) marked for genocidal extermination by the Nazi regime. During the Holocaust (or as the Rom call it, "porrajmos" ["The Devouring"]), between 500,000 to 1,500,000 Rom were systematically exterminated in concentration camps. There have been reports of serious consideration to save a number of Rom/Gypsies in a type of "human zoo" after the Nazis finalized their plans for global conquest.
Today, approximately 12,000,000 Rom live in Europe (contrary to popular belief, only 5% are nomadic), and thousands of others live elsewhere around the world. Still, they have no homeland. In many countries, they are forced to live in poverty, are subject to racist harrasment by legal authorites, and are considered outsiders and outcasts (sometimes even being denied their citizenship).
The International Romani Union (IRU)*, recognized by the United Nations, is attempting to form a diplomatically recognized, non-territorial nation with a "floating" parliment, financed by taxes paid by Rom citizens around the world.

The Republic of China was founded in 1911, and was a founding member of the United Nations (it retained a seat representing China until 1971).
The island and province of Taiwan has been under the administration of the Nationalist Government of China since the Mainland was overthrown by the Communists (led by Mao Zedong) in 1949, and is considered a Government-In-Exile by some authorities.
The People's Republic of China (P.R.C., "Mainland" or "Red" China), considers Taiwan a "renegade province" and has often threatened "restoration" (a deceptive euphemism for military invasion and annexation of Taiwan with the total abolition of the Nationalist Government).
The Taiwanese constitution still claims sovereignty over the whole of China and (Outer) Mongolia, and still controlls Taiwan and outlying islands in the southeast China region and the South China Sea. Taiwan is diplomatically recognized by 30 countries around the world.
Some in Taiwan are demanding that the Nationalist Government reclaim its authority over the Mainland. Others seek total independence from the P.R.C.
Others note the unofficial economic relations between the two Chinas (many businesses in Tiawan have factories on the Mainland), and insist that this is all sabre-rattling on both sides.
According to micropatriologist DD Ting, "...the independence movement of Taiwan and the [Republic of China] are in fact two different concepts with different historical and territorial claims.
"Technically speaking, Taipei municipality is only the provisional capital of the ROC as announced in 1949 (the official capital is still Nanjing {or Nanking} in...Mainland China). The ROC government has a National Unification Council which is governed by the "Guidelines for National Unification". So although the present ruling party of the ROC government, i.e.. the Democratic Progressive Party, is pro-Taiwan independence, the ROC government is still in fact a government in-exile which claims sovereignty over the whole of China, unless someday in the future it officially [denounces] the claim."

Kingdom of TIBET
(Government-In-Exile, People's Republic of China [Occupied Tibet])
(Website maintained by the Goverment of Tibet In-Exile)

The Kingdom of Tibet, an independent, sovereign nation, was invaded and annexed by the People's Republic of China (PRC) on 10 March 1959, and many of the native Tibetans face persecution for practicing their traditional Buddhist faith and for using the Tibetan language. Many of their temples have been destroyed and much of the land has been heavily mined, leaving many sections barren. Their leader, His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet, Tenzin Gyatso (1989 Nobel Peace Prize winner, pictured below), currently resides over the Government In-Exile on donated land in India.
In both the PRC and Occupied Tibet, to fly the Tibetan flag (pictured above), to print anything in the Tibetan language, or even to display a photo of the Dalai Lama, is to risk imprisonment. Many of the faithful display an empty frame to protest this prohibition.

*These are the counties of Antrim {Aontroim}, Armagh {Ard Mhacha}, Derry (or Londonderry) {Doire}, Down {An Dún}, Fermanagh {Fear Manach} and Tyrone {Tír Eoghain}.

Republic of ZIMBABWE

SW Radio Africa bills itself as "The Independent Voice of Zimbabwe". Founded by expatriate Zimbabwian radio news reporter Gerry Jackson after her attempt of starting an uncensored radio station in Zimbabwe, "Capital Radio", was stormed by police on orders from President Robert Mugabe only six days after broadcasts began. (She previously worked for the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation but was fired for taking live telephone calls from listeners during the 1997 food riots, reporting on accusations of police brutality.)
With the base of operations in London, England, and shortwave transmitters in the Republic of South Africa, the station broadcasts uncensored news into Zimbabwe for three hours every day (6 to 9 PM Zimbabwe Time on 4880 kHz, 60m band), defying the official government line of Zimbabean radio and TV.
The station also webcasts live (see website for schedule), and has archived programs on the site (Windows Media Player is required). The website also provides text news and a message board for expatriate Zimbabeans.

Another site of interest is the President Robert Mugabe parody site.
