State of the Nation - June 2011 Report
My apologies for the delay in posting the June report. It's a holiday weekend here and I'm off schedule!
Byzantium Novum had a fairly average month in June. This is the start of the Summer season for many of us, a time when Internet participation is a little slower as folks spend more time outside.
Our Micronation now has a total of 188 officially registered Citizens, a gain of seven for the month. We now have 2,029 "friends" on Facebook, a gain of 61 people now receiving our public postings.
In June the Senate voted in a new Count in the state of Kentucky... we now have 20 Counts serving as contact points for people interested in building local Byzantine community, and two Mayors in territories where some active local efforts are being done. This is exciting as it is very important to get Byzantium Novum "out there" on the local level!
July seems to be shaping up to be a more active month with the first issue of our official newsletter "The Bascilica" coming out. No doubt there will be more to report in July!
