North Dumpling Island

Fishers Island Sound  2016

North Dumpling Island is a privately owned by the inventor of the Segway Human Transporter, Dean Kamen.  Mr Kamen, in a somewhat joking manner, decided to secede from the United States and established the Kingdom of North Dumpling.  He declared himself "Lord Dumpling", established a constitution, printed money, and maintains an army, navy and air force.  The secession is not legally recognized, and I'm pretty sure he's signed a nonaggression treaty with the US.  The island is totally self sustaining with power coming from a combination of solar and wind.  In addition to living quarters there, Mr Kamen has also built a replica of Stonehenge.  It must be nice to have that much money.

  1. Well, this is interesting information. I wonder if Stonehenge in England might be that too...some rich guy imitating something else. Hey! We have discovered the secret of Stonehenge!
