The Kingdom of Kamberra is an invention of Luxembourg artist Franck Medina (King Franck I), as a focus for the creation of his artistamp and banknote designs. It is purportedly a small Pacific island nation, founded on 24 August, 1988. Home to a population of 23,800 who speak Spanish and Kamberri, it is described as a place of "peace, well-being, tolerance and sharing". Mr Medina's website states that the name "Kamberra" is derived from the Kamberri word "kamba'area", meaning "meeting place".The similarity with the name of Australia's capital city, Canberra (named for a Ngunawal Aboriginal word also meaning "meeting place") is probably deliberate

6. WBCC Super Quiz #14...by Jack Hepler, USA
Kings have been rulers of nations down through the ages. Sometimes Kings were benevolent, sometimes despots. Kings remain popular as heads of state even today. Some are only figureheads and some actually rule the nation. Name the Bi-metallic issuing countries that have a King. Queens, Princes, Princesses and others who are considered royalty are not to be included.

"See you" next week,
