Namiseom (南怡苫) is a half-shaped island that is located in Chuncheon, Gangwon Province. Which was formed in 1944, when the Japanese built Cheongpyeong Dam (청평댐), and the water level of the Bukhangang River (북한강) naturally turned it into an island.

It is named Namiseom due to the death of the General Nami from Joseon Dynasty, who was buried on the northern hill of the Island after being fasely accused of treason.

Min Byeong-do (민병도), the founder of Nami Island, built a memorial stone around the pile of stones where the General Nami was buried, in order for his spirit to rest. And also, donated around two thousand of trees in 1965.

In March 1, 2006, it was re-named to Naminara Republic after declaring its cultural independence.

By this, we mean that it now has its own passport, currency, stamps and even its own telephone card! Making it into an interesting experience for sure.
