Anaphoria’s biggest surprise is different, and truly a hidden gem, as the biggest surprises are simply the best, and it was just recently unearthed, but our ambassador’s trip to Mt. Meru was just not the only biggest surprise ever, even if her birthday might be the biggest surprise of all to some, no this is history making, and proves that anything can happen, and with three surprises already there was still even more when the surprise gestation period had ended, a new surprise onslaught happen to change the tide, more than just simple ebb or flow, thus defying all expectations, and the number one way to surprise anyone, in fact it is totally universal, more than ever, outshining the ambassadors surprise visit to her favorite supporter, who also recognized the surprise when no one was expecting it, despite all the rumors that something big was brewing, which was a blunder, and they tried to pass it off saying sometimes smaller surprises can make more impact, yet they didn’t believe it when the biggest surprise happen as the ambassador, well, you know it isn’t that it is something that can be bought either, even if it was the biggest surprise live action recorded, no an official surprise in its own right , courtesy of the ambassador herself, and her surprised family, as big and lovely as one could imagine, as it is, overall in comparison to the biggest surprise not having to do with the numbers, or even the quality of surprises known for their refreshing renewal of the unsurprised by the centuries of the biggest surprises known to both humans and animals, ever since the episode observed in the Lake Aloe festival, word for word here was an even bigger surprise you would think might have just been belted out at the moment, like the biggest surprise successes of rituals, which would be the big gest surprise to the ancestors, trying to catch up with the surprise after surprise, of never diminishing biggest surprises that remind us that the 114 signs that are not revealed is not so much a surprise as a reminder that a pause here will prove that


Our cultural (as opposed to political) mission is to establish a center to provide information about, as well as promote interest in, the cultural resources of Anaphoria Island. In 1993, a temporary field station was set up to facilitate the first in a series of concerts. This became the North American Embassy in 1994 following the Northridge Earthquake. It is the Anaphorian belief that traveling religious artifacts have been known to cause earthquakes as the result of evil forces fleeing their presence. The custom has been to house them in the location in order to prevent or detain their return. This embassy is thus our symbol of good will to the peoples of North America. Since its founding, it has been responsible for numerous concerts, lectures, shadow plays and publicly available recordings. In 2015, Anaphoria convened a meeting where it was decided that signs pointed to it being time to shift its focus to Austronesia and so this now acts as the central embassy.

[ 7/2021 -Primarily in the west and southeast, the names of many cities have reverted to their older traditional ones.]

Part of the oceanic mesocosm, Anaphoria, located 1,000 miles from the nearest major land mass, is 6,432 square miles with a population of 43,234 (1990 census). No place on earth can rival its human diversity-73 [+ 5 now recently discovered in 2012-13] different ethnic groups- and it is just this diversity that is responsible for so many misconceptions about Anaphoria in the west; often only a single group is presented as "representing" the entire island of city-states.
Known even to its inhabitants as the "Isle of Exiles" because it has so long been home and host to expatriates from all over the globe, Anaphoria's myths and history feature many outcasts who appear from distant lands and inadvertently help overcome local crises. Researchers are often baffled to discover even inhabitants who have never been off the island referring to themselves as "foreigners". Eugenio Barba summed it up on his recent visit: "Many of us have a desire to remain foreigners."
