Syndicate: A Virtual Yugoslavia


Could Such Things Be, Or Is This a Mere Rumor?
Perhaps It Was Invented by the Humor Magazine "The Onion"  *8-/

According to a July dispatch from the Agence France-Presse news
service, a group of Yugoslavs will announce on Sept. 9 the creation
of a cyber version of their undivided, pre-1991 country, with
citizenship papers, passports and, eventually, it hopes, United
Nations membership. Cyber Yugoslavia has already signed up thousands
but will not occupy physical space, except about 20 square meters
somewhere on Earth, to house its Internet server (now at
www.juga.com).
