ну, или к ним:

The Kingdom of Elleore is a micronation located on the island of Elleore in the Roskilde Fjord, north of Roskilde on the Danish island of Zealand.

The island was purchased by a group of Copenhagen schoolteachers in 1944 for use as a summer camp. They proclaimed the island’s tongue-in-cheek “independence” as a Kingdom as a gentle parody of the government structure and royal traditions of Denmark.

хоть там и многое под запретом:

<...> Elleore exacts harsh punishment on anyone who brings the kingdom into disrepute. One of the worst crimes is bringing canned sardines onto the island: apparently it’s disrespectful to cram so many ‘individuals’ into such a tiny space, probably because it’s in opposition to what Elleore does with its citizenry. Another nono is taking the book Robinson Crusoe onto Elleore, as the kingdom reckons it gives a ‘distorted and false impression of how life is on a small island’.

Elleore officials check all incoming baggage for these items, and if you’re found with them the penalty is severe: banishment to the ‘prison island’ of Kaj Snude, just northeast of Elleore, where you will be required to stand for 11 minutes and 17 seconds. If your crime is against sardines, you will also be required to set them loose in the water.
