A piece of the island

When Nowhereisland left Bristol on Sunday 9th September, citizenship closed at midnight. The island will now be distributed amongst its citizens. All those who registered to become citizens were entitled to receive a small piece of the island and in this way, the territory of this nation will be shared amongst its global citizens.

Citizens were asked to request to receive their piece of island by either paying for postage online or by sending us a stamped, self-addressed envelope. The deadline for requesting a piece of island has now passed and you should expect to receive your piece of island by the beginning of November.

Please note that some self-addressed enevlopes were the wrong size or were supplied with insufficient postage. We've added additional postage where required and used new envelopes for those that were the incorrect size.

If you have any queries, please contact us on 0117 930 4282 or email
