San Serriffe
In 1977 the British newspaper The Guardian published a special seven-page
supplement devoted to San Serriffe, a small republic located in the Indian
Ocean consisting of several semi-colon-shaped islands. A series of articles
affectionately described the geography and culture of this obscure nation.
Its two main islands were named Upper Caisse and Lower Caisse. Its capital
was Bodoni, and its leader was General Pica. The Guardian's phones rang all
day as readers sought more information about the idyllic holiday spot. Few
noticed that everything about the island was named after printer's
terminology. The success of this hoax is widely credited with launching the
enthusiasm for April Foolery that gripped the British tabloids in subsequent
decades.
