Mackinac Island Nation
Erik Deckers (Author)
DescriptionMackinac Island, Michigan is forced to secede from the U.S. and become an independent nation, thanks to a little-known clause in a 200-year-old peace treaty between the British and Americans. The clause is re-discovered two weeks before July 1, 2015, the day Separation will take effect. And because this treaty has dictated our relationship with England for the last 200 years, it must be honored: Mackinac Island must separate. Of course, Congress can't just repatriate the island because next year is an election year. There are hearings to hold, press conferences to prattle to, bureaucratic bullshit to beget, and candidates want to accuse their opponent of being "soft on Mackinac." Bottom line, it will be two years before Congress does anything about it. Enter reluctant president, Pete Bidwell who finds himself in the unwanted position of trying to keep everyone happy and get everything back to normal, torn between what he knows is right and what everyone else wants.America has cut off their cable and cell service; the Russians, Israelis, and French are spying on them; and Canada is secretly colluding - and canoodling - with Pete's wife Lucy to make them a protectorate. And North Korea wants to place nuclear weapons on the island. Two years can't end fast enough for Pete.
