UPI News Service, 12/24/2012 

An online survivalist group is proposing a walled community in Northern Idaho centered around a firearms manufacturing company.

The Citadel survivalist group is proposing a complex housing 3,500 to 7,000 families on about 2,000 to 3,000 acres in Benewah County with a firearms manufacturing company at the center to employ residents and raise money for the community, The Idaho Statesman reported Monday.

The group's website said the site was chosen for its sparse population and "shared worldview" of independence, self-sufficiency and patriotism.

The website said more than 200 families have already applied to join the community, which the group said it hopes to break ground on shortly after summer 2013. The group has already purchased 20 acres of land in the county.

III Arms, the firearms manufacturing company proposed to form the center of the community, was incorporated in Idaho in August and lists its headquarters in Gaithersburg, Md.
