Can you imagine a government
that truly runs on peace?

Come along with young Alex as he tours the headquarters of Founderland, the“14th Colony” that never made it into history books. Share his surprise and wonder as he talks to various denim-clad department leaders who give him a glimpse of what a government would be like if it were founded on the principle that “peace is our natural inheritance.”

(And don’t miss the trumpet blasts before each of the Leader’s announcements!)

“With this entertaining book, Robert Skutch gives us a very creative and positive way to ponder some ‘what if?’ questions: What if a government was truly dedicated to peace? And what if ours was from the beginning? I loved this book and highly recommend it.”— GARY R. RENARD, best-selling author of the Disappearance of the Universe trilogy and The Lifetimes When Jesus and Buddha Knew Each Other

“Turn these pages to find a well of wisdom and inspiration: one man’s brilliant outline for a new way of governing. I can’t wait to read this book with my grandsons when they reach high school age, although it has lessons for everyone.”SUSAN WOOLDRIDGE, best-selling author of poemcrazy: freeing your life with words

“The co-founder of The Foundation for Inner Peace presents a blueprint for a much simpler, happier, and safer way of living in community when peace of mind, cooperation, and brotherhood become the priorities. Thought-provoking for all ages.”CAROL HOWE, author of Never Forget To Laugh: Personal Recollections of Bill Thetford
