The Republic offers duel citizenship to anyone that request it provided you comply to the Hampton Republic rules of conduct.As every citizen acts as both ambassador and embassy for the republic, it is important that you uphold the ideas of the republic.
The Five tenets of the Hampton Republic's code are:
The island is the 1st. ever inter-specie citizenry nation in the world, recognizing plant, animal, sea life and humans as citizens of the republic. We have no boarders and no police force or military.
The Hampton Republic lies 780 nautical miles off the south/southeast of the southern east coast of Central Florida. in an area known as the forbidden Mid Atlantic Cap, An area of the Mid Atlantic known for its translucent sands and sea foam green trees and canopy which makes the island republic almost invisible from the air and due to its placement far from the shipping lanes, seldom found by sea.
Travel to the Hampton Republic
Travel to the nation is by invitation only but one must realize that as a citizen, you carry the republic with you in its ideals and by honoring the tenets of the the Hampton Republic's code. Also travel by Mindship* (inter-visual on demand astral projection) or IVODAP, is welcome anytime.
(Note* mindship is the trademark mind travel service of the Hampton Republic and grants no right of uses to anyone other than citizens of the nation)
Faun and Flora
The republic is covered in a thick sea foam green conopy of many kinds. The Barabeara palm tree is the largest palm in the world with an avrage height of 67 feet and a base with of 22 feet. Its sea foam green palm fronds can reach 10 feet long.
The Marguru- Gee bush is a ground covering akin to the wondering Jew and is found in the highlands of the islands interior. its pointy needles have a unique opening at the very tip that in the wind causes the bush to make a high pitch winning sound (the natives call this bush the wining Jew or Lisa)
The weather is always good in the Hampton Republic. at the coast line it is fair and mild most of the year. the interior of the island get 11 months of storms and high winds, lightning, snow, golf ball size hail and the occasional locus plague or rain of frogs and blood.Average temperature is 71 degrees at the coastline and -12 degrees in the interior of the island.
The Hampton republic consists of one major island (Hamptonina major) and 2 sand bars (Hammy & Lil Emo)
The total land mass of the Hampton Republic varies with the seasons. In winter the island is 72miles wide by 6.2 miles long. In the summer months the islands is 3 feet wide by 16 inch long. The island sits at 62 feet above sea level in winter and 3 inches below sea level in summer. The coastlines are covered with soft, translucent sands from the interior's mud volcano ( Known as the Big ham) that erupts every 15 minutes- sending torrents of hot mud racing to the coast.
The island has 2 other smaller volcanoes that are dormant and have been converted into hollowed out volcano layers for the two warring factions on the island (see geopolitical issues). The sand bars are each 35 miles long and 9 yards wide and are home to 5 hotels, 6 bed & Breakfasts, one Saab dealership, a putt putt golf course and a water park called "Me So Wetty Wetty".
Government, Politics & Geopolitical Issues
The islands government is a demo-dictator-cracy. Governed by the Commodore and whom is advised by a group of senators, psychic mediums, talking trees and dogs and fish and a one legged, blind, harelipped oracle called GooGoo.
The main views of the republic are based on the 5 tenets; Beauty, freedom, truth, love and party. Every living thing is a citizen of the republic and has a vote (with the exception of dam dirty Apes)
The indigenous population consists of two tribe like peoples. The Hamps, whom claim to be the first people on the earth, are at constant war with the other tribe the Tons. The Tons claim to be the first people that ever claimed to be the first people and have sworn to defeat the Hamps.
6000 years of war
The war has raged for 6000 years and although swon enemies the tribes have reduced the fighting to just one day a year and only using palm fronds. One member of each tribe is selected by the witchdoctor of the tribe to fight. They battle for over 10 minutes and the one with the most visible frond lashes is the loser. So far the score is 3000 to 3000.
Economy and Resources
The mainstay of the republic's economy is the naturally occurring Geo-Nuclear energy from the republic's fusion mountain range. Discovered in 1899 by Swedish mariner Urig Mydickenson. The island republic sells Geo-Nuclear power to 109 countries at bargain prices. Sky tankers are filled daily and shipped around the globe. The Geo-Nuclear power is produced by a deep volcanic riff that under extreme pressure splits atoms and produces a natural nuclear reaction. The energy flows up from the Big Ham (volcano) where it is trapped in a electron based containment field until it is pumped into the takers.
Another source of income to the republic is it's Penguin Guano plantations. A staggering number of penguins live on the island and in one small area . they have developed a ravenous appetite for the berries from the Marguru- Gee bush. While the bush berries are very nourishing for them it causes a gastronomic reaction in which the penguins produce their weight in poo each day. The guano is dried in the plantation fields of the islands interior and sold as fuel and glue to 3rd world nations.
People from around the world come to the island by "mindship' and invitation of the Commodore. On average upwards to 6000 people are on the island by "mindship" or invitation in any given day. These tourists account for 15% of the republic's economy.
A hybrid of the cane sugar plant and the Coco plant. Coke-cane is harvested from the sides of the big Ham mountain range and ground into a fine white powder that is both sweet and provides a moderate buzz for a few hours. illegal on the island but sold to other nations that covert it by adding 1 % corn to it and then (due to lacks labeling rules) can sell it as corn syrup. While the moral dilemma in this industry dose keep the Commodore up at nights he is sleeping on a giant mattress of money sent daily by Monsanto Corp.
