The Republic of Howland is a small nation based in the United States, surrounded by the State of New Hampshire. It is a relatively small nation, with it's borders within the town of Winchester and Marlborough, New Hampshire. Howland has developed a trade agreement with Winchester, Marlborough and Keene (the largest city in the region), but has yet to secure one with the New Hampshire or United States states government.
The Republic of Howland began as a small plot of land belonging to Zachary S. Howland and his parents. After years of public dissent to his political views and beliefs, and the federal governments constant attack on him through taxes and foreclosure, Zachary decided that seccesion was the only possible solution to alleviate his impending fate. He began to build walls around his property, much to the dissaproval of the town of Winchester, and within those walls, he planted gardens and even brought in a stock of cows and pigs. He then set about installing a self sufficient generator, and eventually had his own plumbing installed, disconnecting himself from the infrastrucure of the surrounding town. By June 12, 2008, Zachary S. Howland was completely self sufficient. On July 3, 2008, Zachary set forth a declaration of independence, known as, "The Howland Plan," and immediately withdrew his property, his assets, and himself from Winchester, New Hampshire, The United States. His withdrawal mainly went unoticed, until Zachary began bringing in locals to his new nation.
On July 4, 2008, a day after "The Howland Plan" came into affect, the Republic of Howland officially annexed the Kulicks Territory, and land on the banks of the Ashuelot River. The annexation surpisingly went without much say from the town of Winchester, and the residents of the area were pleased to find that most governing rules were simplistic and ideal for their individualistic beliefs. The Republic of Howland's economic status increased dramatically due to the supermarket, hardware store, and tattoo shop inside the borders of the newly claimed territory, and The Republic of Howland took it's first large step into the future of recognition.
