The Legal Basis of TTF-Bucksfan


You may think that there is something not so "Kosher" with the existence of a micronation. You may even think that TTF or Bucksfan is outright illegal. You couldn't be more wrong! The pretext for TTF or Bucksfan is well grounded in International Law and Convention. The following authoritative Declarations make this fairly apparent.
