I was reading about micronations (People that claim to be their own country but are not recognized by anyone) and I was thinking, why hasn’t Grunkle Stan tried to turn the Mystery Shack into a sovereign nation yet? It seems like the ultimate tourist trappy thing to do.
I love reading about micronations and the creative and eccentric people who make them. I feel that Stan is just eccentric enough to do something like this. Just look at the Republic of Molossia or the Principality of Hutt River.
Plus, who knows? It might get those government guys off his back!
