History of West Who - Over 50 Years of Fun


It all started in 1969, man landed on the Moon and West Who became a country.  West Who was named after nice but imaginary people called the Who's in a Dr. Suess childrens book. The history of West Who dates back to the turbulent time of 1969.  The nation was established by John Farr. He and Craig Carter, two students from California, decided to create their own countries, naming them West Who and Iswas.  Working to develop independent countries the students created their own currency, postage stamps, government, newspapers and other aspects of a nation.  The President of West Who and the Prime Minister of Iswas declared their nations independent of the United States where both students lived in 1970.  Their junior high friends joined in the fun and made their own countries too.  The various mirconations declared war on each other, made alliances and generally enjoyed themselves for a number of years.   Over time, West Who developed as an independent micronation.  Today it's citizens live across the globe in 22 different nations, and are happy people who are free and independent.  For many years elections were sporatic in West Who, but as the nation has grown general elections occur on a yearly basis.
