In the US this week, we celebrate Thanksgiving, a holiday with its origins in the founding of this country. The Canadians celebrated their own version a month ago. In fact, almost every country has their own “We started a new country!” celebration.

But is that possible now?

If you are curious about how current events tie back to your country’s origins, or if you just want to find a way to avoid your relatives in a more official way, here is Joe Bereta with Epic How To to explain how to set up a country of your own!
