Editor's Note: Due to the questions we receive on the Republic of Howland, Baker and Jarvis Island, we offer the following presentation:

From: the Republic of Howland Baker and Jarvis a highly developed web-based alternative reality project in the central Pacific Ocean. Howland, Baker and Jarvis Islands were exploited for commercial guano harvesting during the 18th century. All three islands were also occupied by American forces during World War II. The Compact of Free Association goes into effect, making an independent nation associated with the U.S. in 1991.

The explanation on the website state clearly that it is a fictional micronation based on the premise that after Amelia Earhart's flight, the island was bought by a rich US citizen and transformed into a Singapore-like place.

He also explains that he is not selling citizenship, postal stamps or any of the related self-declared micronation's usual mean of revenue.

This micronation had a "contest" for a "new flag" when the third island "joined." I remember seeing the various ideas on their site and thinking that I liked some more than the "winner," but all are now dead links (the contest page, with text, is still up at except for the current flag.
