Salt Lake City: A New York man is building his own sovereign nation called Zaqistan on a remote piece of land in Utah.
KSL-TV reports that Zaq Landsberg is the president and has created a flag, official-looking passports and a border patrol gate for the realm.
Landsberg says he knows the four-acre piece of land won’t actually become its own recognized country, but building it is an interesting exercise in pushing the boundaries of concepts like land ownership and sovereignty.
In the decade since he bought the land, Landsberg has also added a supply bunker and a robot sentry to guard the plot in Box Elder County, about 160 miles north of Salt Lake City.
He’s even created a motto for the land of Zaqistan: “Something from nothing.”
