Writer Chris Kubica Announces: 'Arctica, A New Virtual Nation Centered Around the Geographic North Pole'

CARRBORO, N.C., June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- "We're declaring independence and announcing an International Competition to design the Arctican National Flag," said Kubica. "In light on recent human-created disasters like the oil spill in The Gulf of Mexico, I'm doing this to raise awareness of the need to protect The Arctic from becoming yet another victim of exploitation by the nations of this Earth. Maybe if we join together in solidarity under a united International flag we can protect and defend the beautiful and as yet unsullied natural ecosystem that is The Arctic."

Kubica went on to say that mostly everyone he has told about Arctica thinks he is kidding and that he will have a long, difficult, seemingly futile road ahead of him getting Arctica recognized as a country by even one other existing nation.

"That's OK," said Kubica, "Arctica prides itself in being a green, paperless country that can be run entirely online. The overhead is low, so even if it takes many years to get even a small amount of international attention, I can wait."
