Liberland is a sovereign state located between Croatia and Serbia on the west bank of the Danube River. Vit Jedlicka seized the opportunity and on 13 April 2015 formed a new state in this territory.


on a tiny silver –
uninhabited marshland
rejected both by
croatia & serbia

vit jedlicka planted a flag
along with his girlfriend
welcoming half a million
would-be online citizens

musing at the vast,
unbridled landscape
at the break of the dawn
framed by his blossoming dreams

of libertarian, his little utopia
no taxes, no gun control
& bitcoins as currency
& freedom & freedom everywhere

the sun above looked like
raw egg on his breakfast plate
the waters of danube river wavered,
black like fizzy drink

his dreams fizzed & sparkled
“all countries are fantasies
& they’re all in your head”
he mused & took a final sigh

terra nullius – said the law
& gave him a thrash
& banished him from his
7 sq km dream country

now exiled in the foreign lands
he yet dreams & chases fantasies
because he knows deep inside he’s
“doing the real stuff in a romantic way”
