The micro state uses English as national language, but as a tribute to world peace and equality, Esperanto is accepted as national language too.

It took some diplomatic skills to contact the Ministry of Finance of Molossia, to obtain the current notes and coins.
His excellency, President Baugh, contacted me personally and sent me from the government house itself.
