Bon Jovi ban helps family live happily in 'independent state'
More than 6000 people have requested to become honorary citizens of Islonia.
A family living on an island in Loch Gairloch have set up what they are calling "their own independent state".
Islonia on Loch Gairloch is just four acres in size but so far more than 6000 people have requested to become honorary citizens and been issued with a special passport.
The "Royal" family holding court are the McWhinneys - King Ian, his wife Queen Jess, and daughters Iona and Isla.
With a constitution that includes a ban on Bon Jovi, the family say they are enjoying living in an independent state.
They are now looking forward to seeing what Scotland decides in September's referendum.
