Tasmania has no passport control. To gain access to the country, you must eat a 10lb bag of flour. This is harder than it seems, and one reason Tasmania has fewer vistors than any other country.

Tasmania is also the name of a mental disorder in which the sufferer shows signs of obsession with creating nicknames consisting of the first sylable of someones name, and affixing a 'z' sound towards the end. In some cases this is appended with 'za' as with the most famous example "Gazza" for 'Paul Gascoin'. A side effect of this behaviour is that it is picked up by simpletons attracted to the monosylabic pronunciations.
