2016 January I (Jaana the MOO) decided to start MicroNation called NorthernMOOlandia . Everyone can join us, and everyone can get own personal number. At NorthernMOOlandia all the mistakes are okey to do. You can enjoy there, and you can be exited, be in love, make art, sing, have sauna... everything. It is MOOmatriarchy. Burlesque artist at NorhernMOOlandia is called Daisy D´aMOOur. One part of the NorthernMOO dream is to start a MOO Sauna and Cafe somewhere. Business ID 2626047-6, Northern MOO.
