"One of the smallest , independent kingdoms in the ciberuniverse. Nothing fancy. Population? Just me, myself and my jaguars, my movies and my books (and, at this very moment, YOU). Hided and secret like Skull Island or Opar, the ancients in Guelyland use to read the scrools of a minor god called Voor-Hes.
Most of the treasures of Guelyland are made of paper, plastic and vinyl.Guelyland dreams with expanding in deep more then in surface. The music of Nik Kershaw has been heard here. There are apes, lots of apes in Guelyland. Woody Allen and Bob Hope visit it quite often. Here we love books (the Kingdoms Library is both celebrated and secret) Here we are atheists but very tolerant and think of god a bit too often and much. Guelyland is, the stuff my dreams are made of..."

Reading Desmond Morris fascinating Men and Apes:
"Thomas Jefferson also believed that apes make a habit of raping Negresses. He consider it to be only natural that apesshould want to be breed with Negresses, just as Negroes should want to breed with whites, since this reflected a struggle upwards towards perfection. In a discussion of the differences between whites and Negroes contained in his Notes on Virginia ,writtten in 1781-1782, he expresses his firm conviction in white superiority, as demonstrated by the Negroes' "own judge in favor of the whites, declared by their preference of them, as uniformly as is the preferences of the Oran-utan for the black woman over those of his own species". Despite the extraordinary enlightment shown in his plan for the abolition of slavery in America, Jefferson none the less shared many of the prejudicies of his times."
