As noted before, the Republic of Molossia is a larger country than can be seen in our Home Territory located in Northern Nevada. Our nation also possesses two exclaves: Desert Homestead Province, located near Joshua Tree, California, and Farfalla Province, located outside the Northern California town of Alturas. Farfalla consists of 7,965 Square Royal Nortons (2 hectares / 4.9 acres) of uninhabited land surrounded by rolling forested hills. It is split by a small creek named Deer Run, which is partially fed by Lion Spring. Farfalla is covered in juniper and piņon trees, wild flowers and grasses. In the absence of humans, there is substantial wildlife in Farfalla, including deer, coyotes, cottontail rabbits and the occasional house cat.
It was to Farfalla that His Excellency, the President, the First Lady, the Chief Constable and her beau Tyler, journeyed on 11 June 2022 XLV. This was the first visit to our far-flung province since it was elevated from colony to province in January of this year. The First Family set up camp in Farfalla, the first time any Molossian has stayed overnight in the province. Just a few hours into the visit rain set in, continuing into the next day. Following an expedition further afield on the second day of the visit, rain and unseasonable cold drove the intrepid pioneers to a hotel in nearby Alturas. On the third day, the First Family installed a wildlife camera in the province, to spy on the frequent animal visitors to this unspoiled wilderness. In addition, the Chief Constable expertly piloted a drone above Farfalla, giving an aerial view of the territory for the first time. In spite of the inclement weather, the visit to Farfalla was a great success. As in previous visits, plans were made to establish a more permanent presence in Farfalla, perhaps someday with a small cabin, the weather making this goal even more appealing. In the meantime, we will continue to enjoy our distant Farfalla Province from afar.
