Moosylvania

Moosylvania is a fictional island between the U.S. and Canada, in Veronica Lake, a fictional body of water in Rocky and Bullwinkle. Its governor is Bullwinkle J. Moose. The U.S. claims that it is part of Canada, and Canada claims that is part of the U.S. because neither country wants to own it. Bullwinkle vacations in Moosylvania because "after two weeks here, anyplace else feels like Heaven."

Fearless Leader once attempted to destroy Moosylvania and almost succeeded, but failed when Bullwinkle, who was going to go down with his sinking country, asked Rocky for a stick of gum and then Rocky got the idea to raise up Moosylvania with the bubble gum balloons. The plan worked and Moosylvania was saved.

In the fall of 1962, Jay Ward, producer of the Rocky and Bullwinkle show, decided to campaign for statehood for Moosylvania. Ward sent Skip Craig to Minnesota to buy an island in the Lake of the Woods. Craig wasn't able to find one for sale on the U.S. side of the lake, but managed to lease one for three years. Ward and publicist Howard Brandy conducted a west-to-east cross-country tour in a decorated van, gathering signatures on a petition for statehood for Moosylvania. While in Washington, D.C., they sought an audience with President John F. Kennedy. However, they arrived at the White House during the Cuban Missile Crisis and Ward was escorted off the grounds.
