You've never heard of Ladonia? That's because it doesn't exist, at least as a country. Oh, it's a piece of land, all right – in southern Sweden. But it's less than a mile square. Mostly, though, it's an Internet site set up by a local abstract artist who calls himself Ladonia's "state secretary." Anyway, word of the site has spread, and more than 3,000 Pakistanis already have applied for citizenship.
