Paganistan is the term given to the area surrounding the Twin Cities in Minnesota, as it has a very large, very diverse population of neo-pagans. The idea of Paganistan is largely attributed to Lady Sheba,[1] who prophesied that a pagan temple would be built in Minneapolis.[2] Many believe, however, that this was simply self-fullfilling, because as word grew of the prophecy, more neo-pagans flocked to the Twin Cities. Within only a few years, the Twin Cities became home to one of the largest and most diverse neo-pagan populations in the United States.

[edit] The legend of Paganistan

Paganistanis having a summer solstice whoop-te-doo at their temple.

Witch City, Pagan Nation,[3] an article by poet Steven Posch, explains how the term Paganistan was coined, and how Paganistan came to be.
