It’s April 23rd, 1982, and you’re waking up in your hometown of Key West, FL and quickly learn that, apparently, you no longer are a citizen of the United States.

In protest of a federal roadblock set up near Florida City (which caused significantly gridlock and resulted in hundreds of cancelled visits to the islands) Mayor Dennis Wardlow declared that the islands were seceding from the union. They would now function as a sovereign nation called The Conch Republic for which he served as Prime Minister. The nation declared war on the United States before quickly surrendering and requesting $1 billion in federal aid.

The story of the CR is incredible and I hope you take a few minutes to take in the full history as described on their official website.
