As spotted by President Yaroslav Mar, the Republic of Lostisland became subject of a fiction novel Māui and Pele who hold the world (Russian: Мауи и Пеле, держащие мир), authored by Alexander Rozov (Russian: Александр Розов). Part of the series Confederation of Meganesia (Russian: Конфедерация Меганезия), the novel is written as a trilogy. The novel’s action takes place in 2033, in a fictional S. Pacific country Confederation of Meganesia, which gave name to the series, and tells the story of a conflict between Meganesia and world’s superpowers. According to the plot, the Republic of Lostisland supposedly discovered deposits of uranium on Hunter Island, but facing pressure from France, which didn’t allow to mine it, was forced to sell herself to the United States; the USA, in turn, sold Lostisland to the Confederation of Meganesia. Seeing that efforts of the Lostislandic Parliament are ignored in Paris, Meganesia decided to occupy Hunter Island and build on it an uranium mine and a fortress. France, which originally planned to invade Hunter in response to it, was forced to cancel these plans after Meganesian government sprayed 15,000 liters of radacetyl over it, which resulted in radioactive contamination of the island, and the matter was forwarded to the UN Security Council. Extracts from the book are available below:
– Too easy – grumbled a West Point graduate .
– It’s not easy , – said the deputy, – for this, as you already know from Phlox , we bought the Republic of Lostisland.
Lieutenant Commander grunted skeptically .
– It’s just, I don’t see, why the hell do we need this Lostisland? There are plenty of micronations created for passport and visa fraud – Melchizedek, Westarctica, Minerva, Sealand… Every fool can create a micronation and play with it, but we paid money to those scammers who created Lostisland which is nothing better than the rest.
– No, it is better as it exists since 2008, and is featured in Globopedia as a micronation claiming Hunter Island. This island is considered to be the territory of France, part of the colony of New Caledonia. We purchased Lostisland to start a power struggle over the disputed island, as Paris ignores the diplomatic efforts of the Lostislandic Parliament. Now Lostisland joins the Confederation of Meganesia. Our special group «Creatori» led by Sam Hopkins, occupies Hunter Island and begins to build an uranium mine and a fortress on it.
– So. Clear. And for whom is this circus?
– For the world’s press , of course! Theme of the day: Meganesia occupied part of France!
– It’s not serious, Oz !
– No, it is serious, because a large French ship will immediately become a victim of a military conflict over Hunter Island and adjacent waters. And yet , count: New Caledonian nickel concern papers will begin to crumble.
– Why would they start to fall? – the Lieutenant Commander was surprised.
– Ah! – The Wizard of Oz smiled – The “bears” will attack on the wake of a black PR.
– the Americans – authoritatively said the Minister of Finances – want to grab Oceania before the communist China and N. Korea do it.
– Indeed – supported him the Minister of Labour – I heard that the Americans through Great Britain sold the rights to the Republic of Lostisland, which is on Hunter Island. Some Englishman from the Republic conducted an Internet briefing during which he explained that they had to sell Lostisland because the French were not allowing them to mine uranium on it.
Minister of Natural Resources looked at the Minister of Labour . – Which island? Maybe Hunter Rock, which lays 400 miles to the south-south-east of here? – Yes, but it is called the island, for the sake of impressiveness. Like, an island of 60 hectares . – Exactly 60 hectares. And that , is there really uranium on it? – No, – Minister of Labour and shook his head – I think it’s not uranium. Simple, the island is strategically convenient, serves as a springboard. From there you can jump to the west on Matthew island, from Matthew at Walpole, and Walpole it is not so far from Grand New Caledonia, while the Americans will land in Noumea, to protect the inhabitants from the Convent. Everyone knows the American custom of involving for the sake of “defending” someone and than grabbing everything. Minister of Natural Resources thought some more and said, – And what if France sends their corvettes and knocks out those people from the Hunter island? – He-he, – Minister of Labour chuckled – those chaps are not to be so easily knocked out. Sam Poppins… – Sam Hopkins – meticulously adjusted the Minister of Foreign Affairs. – … Well, Hopkins . In general, Sam the Terrorist. He already installed sea mines there. It is published in the Internet. And these mines are as powerful as those on which the Yankee commandos blew up a month ago, on the Cook Islands and on Tintunge in Lantos, where the capital Meganesia is located.

The issue this uranium mine is forwarded to the UN Security Council .
The Master Achor pulled away from viewing, and asked
– Fokker, but where from is radiation on this island?
– There ‘s something sprayed – said air-instructor of the People’s Navy, tossing the “English Breakfast ” in a deft movement from the frying pan onto a plate, and put a plate directly under the nose of master-reenactor .
– Maururoa, – he thanked – so what was sprayed over this Lostisland ?
– 15,000 liters of radacetyl – Fokker responded and explained – Two “Orangecarriers” with tanks for agrochemical operations. Oh, don’t you know what racacetyl is?This is a heavy fraction of acetate solution after processing Fijian uranium ore.
– Clearly, – said Achor, picking up a piece of sausage on a fork and dunking it round yolk eggs
– and who is ordered to make such a big yuck?
– The proconsul , of course. But this yuck is not very big. 5000 micro-roentgen per hour, it is conditionally safe level according to the norms of war. But in the First World in regards to civilian objects is considered that 50 micro-roentgen per hour is terrible.
*** CNN, news of the hour . Spotted elimination of General Teva Timber ***
Today, in a pointed missile strike from an unmanned aircraft «Grey Eagle» was destroyed the building of the General Staff of the armed forces of Fiji in Suva . The building has played the role of the office of the government after the seizure of power by the military junta on November 30 by General Teva Timber. According to preliminary data, the blow was struck at the time of the meeting, which was attended by the General himself and at least five of his entourage. Sources close to the Ministry of Defense have just learned that President Migger Codd authorized the strike and that was commissioned an anti-terrorist team in Nuku’alofa (Tonga) . Since 2003,among Pacific countries Tonga is the most consistent member of the American Convention against Terrorism. While there are no official reports of the death of General Timber, now we can assume the reason for his elimination. The General, deporting 350,000 ethnic Hindus and Muslims (40% of Fiji’s population), and assigning the property of many foreign companies , immediately after the coup began to prepare aggression against Tonga and against the French New Caledonia. There is a suspicion that General Timber was behind a fraud with the inclusion of the micronation Lostisland into Meganesia and capture of the volcanic Hunter Island , which is part of New Caledonia. According to unofficial estimates, on Hunter there are deposits of uranium , and the general’s partners were already there mining it in gross violation of the rules of the IAEA. It is likely that the Timber wanted to build nuclear weapons to carry out his terrorist aspirations.
– Wow! – Exclaimed the sailor Horn – I’m conducting the Pantzerbjorn! And what is that Lostisland-Hunter Island, where are we going? – It is an emergent summit of a volcano, an area of about 60 hectares, the most south-easterly surface objects in the archipelago of the New Hebrides – Vanuatu. Hunter previously belonged to France as the far eastern desert land colony of New Caledonia, although since 2010 the island is claimed by micronation Lostisland. And last year, Lostisland entered into the Confederation of Meganesia. Our expedition goes there by arrangement with by the convention to check environmental safety handicraft arranged uranium mine. – So, again we find ourselves in Meganesia … – muttered Lieutenant Skops. – Of course – Avis confirmed – but what else can you get in your situation? – It turns out that nothing else – he agreed – and this is something not very happy. – Do not make a problem of it, Russell. Meganesia, in general, is a pretty country. Okay, I promised Junius a quote from the Bible about biological weapons …
