The article focuses on the efforts of interim governor Brian Petersen in developing the State of Jefferson in the U.S. He considered the area as a great marketing tool and a means of reaching out the local residents. Petersen collaborated with another concerned citizen to revive the proposals of Gilbert Gable to secede the counties of Northern California and southern Oregon from their respective states. Furthermore, Petersen co-authored a book about the history of the place and organized a Jefferson State Fair which showcased property-rights leader Wayne Hage.
