Redditors were going to buy their own island in order to organize a separate state on it with its own laws. This idea originated back in 2010 when user u / matude opened r / RedditIsland. Then the initiators of the project wanted to build a tropical resort with a monastery, bar and scuba diving, where Reddit users could temporarily live. They even found a developer and developed a plan, but the project was abandoned due to a large number of conflicting proposals.
In early May 2021, the project was revived in a new section r / Reddit_Island. In just five days, this subreddit has amassed 26,000 subscribers – four times more than its predecessor in more than ten years. Now this section mainly publishes memes that ridicule the idea of buying an island and creating a state. There, users began to select a real-life island among those that are for sale, and come up with specific laws and regulations.
It is proposed to name the new state Memeland, use LEGO pieces as a means of payment, set the time zone to GMT +4: 20, annually celebrate the release date of “Shrek” and Keanu Reeves’ birthday, open a meme museum, choose Rick Astley’s song Never Gonna as the national anthem Give You Up, ban firearms, but allow bats, swords and bows. TikTok and Fortnite will also be banned.
The most important problem is where to get the money to buy the island and how to distribute the costs. One of the proposed options is to involve Elon Musk in this project, who likes to fund various strange and dubious undertakings. He could well become the president of a new state, besides, he already has a lot of similar regalia.
The moderators of r / Reddit_Island clarified that buying the island by teaming up is quite feasible, however, it will not work to organize a separate state on it, so all residents and guests will have to obey the laws of the country in which this island is located. If this project is implemented (and the likelihood of this is high), everyone will be able to come to the island and relax or work there.
