We, citizens (not all!), of Totnes, Devon, England, have declared ourselves as an independent city state.
We take an oath of allegiance to the EU.
We have issued the Totnes passport.

The Declaration of the Reformation of Brexit has been nailed (well, blue tack) to the 17th century Guiildhall door.
