    We announce the birth of a conceptual country, NUTOPIA.

    Citizenship of the country can be obtained by declaration of your awareness of NUTOPIA.

    NUTOPIA has no land, no boundaries, no passports, only people.

    NUTOPIA has no laws other than cosmic.

    All people of NUTOPIA are ambassadors of the country.

    As two ambassadors of NUTOPIA, we ask for diplomatic immunity and recognition in the United Nations of our country and its people.

    Nutopia is a country that exists in all of us.
    John and I created this imaginary world.
    We called a press conference and produced a white handkerchief from our pockets and said "This is a flag to Surrender to Peace."
    Not fight for Peace, but *Surrender* to Peace was the important bit.
    All of us represent Nutopia.
