Where is The Republic of Slowjamastan located?
Slowjamastan is an enclave completely surrounded by American territory. Our nation is accessible from California Highway 78, between the American cities of Ocotillo Wells and Westmoreland, California. You can learn more about our location HERE.
Is The Republic of Slowjamastan really a country?
I don’t believe you.
A wise man once said, “It’s my prerogative.” That wise man was Bobby Brown. You don’t have to believe us – you do you and we’ll do us. But really, what constitutes what is and isn’t a country? I guess it depends on who you ask. Taiwan, Palestine, Vatican City, Kosovo and Western Sahara all say they are countries, but a large portion of the world does not agree. We have claimed independence, have land, borders, cultures and a kick-ass raccoon as a logo/national animal, soooooooo…we’re a country. Don’t fight it.
Can I visit Slowjamastan?
Why yes, yes you can. But you’ll need permission, a.k.a a visa. Get in touch with us for more information. Do not attempt to enter Slowjamastan without permission – we have land mines. And wild raccoons.
We do encourage selfies in front of our border signs. Just don’t go into Slowjamastan much further without a guide (the whole land mine thing, you know.)
The best time to come is actually during one of our handful of events each year. If you sign up for our free newsletter HERE, you will be the first to receive exclusive invites to our future get-togethers, soirées, and hoe-downs.

Can I Become a Citizen of Slowjamastan?
You sure can! Like any nation, there are requirements. There is a test (don’t worry, it’s easy), minimal paperwork and a small fee involved, but trust me – it’s totally worth it. CLICK HERE to get started.
I want to be involved – how can I be part of Slowjamastan…more than just a citizen?
I’m glad you asked. We will soon be building our political and gubernatorial offices and we need all the help we can get. If you’ve ever wanted to be a prince, a knight, a czar or an ambassador – we’ll be filling dozens of positions and you’re invited to apply. GO HERE for all the options!

Does Slowjamastan have a leader?
You damn right. The Sultan Randy “R Dub!” Williams is the founder and supreme leader of Slowjamastan. Don’t even think about trying to overthrow him or this republic. It’s not that our Sultan can fight – he just has a lot of debt, and you don’t want that!!!
What is The Sultan’s day job?
The Sultan goes by “R Dub!” on the radio, and hosts an internationally syndicated program called Sunday Night Slow Jams that airs on over 200 radio stations in 17 countries. (Really!) You can see more info on the show HERE. His Excellency has just finished travelling to every country in the world, all 193. Yes, even North Korea. Please enjoy his travel blog HERE.
The Sultan’s official bio can be admired HERE.
Wait a minute…what about TAXES??? If I become a citizen, will I have to pay taxes?
Slowjamastan is a tax-free nation. We don’t believe in over-taxing our citizens like some nations and states (ahem, California, I’m talking about you!) That being said, we’re not gonna lie: Our nation is teetering on the brink of a financial crisis! You can support your favorite new country buy purchasing something from our SlowjamaShop. Even a $4 sticker helps! Get started HERE. No seriously, please buy something, or our Sultan might have to resort to going back to being a Cutco knives salesman.
Why aren’t there more FAQs?
