If they wanted to, the MR could make a tidy sum by, in stead of using Greek currency, have its own and sell zillions of commemoratives to collectors all around the world. Collecting coins and stamps from tiny countries is probably even more popular *there* than *here* on account of there being more of them. Just a thought. Elemtilas 04:27, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Stamps are in; coins are out. I used to collect stamps and so, felt attracted to that. Plus one of the monasteries will have a printing press, so the MR can print its own stamps. Minting coins seems, somehow, more trouble than its worth. There is still a lot of the pre-industrial society about the MR. Caeruleancentaur 04:30, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Another thought: For its two-letter code, the country's less likely to use its English name, since English is not the international language *there*. How about AO or MD, based on its Greek name? Benkarnell

Great! One of the things I needed to know. I like "MD" and will use that. Caeruleancentaur 04:30, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
A thought on the ethnic entry, I understand that every monks becomes an athonian upon entering the monastery but it might be more useful to list the ethnicity (of birth) rather then the nationality.--Marc Pasquin 12:53, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
I thought of that as soon as I wrote it! I will be correcting that as soon as I come up with some population figures. BTW, the adjective or demonym is Athonite. Caeruleancentaur 04:30, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Probelms with Religion

Greece exiled all non-Orthodox Christians and Muslims when it saw they were losing GW-II, so there really is no Roman Catholic Exarcate of Athens, sorry. Misterxeight 17:23, 22 February 2009 (UTC)


What happened to the MR Constitution? I can't find it anymore. Benkarnell 21:54, 1 May 2009 (UTC)
