Ocean Country


Ocean Country

$1 MILLION (Prize amount to be confirmed. Announcement expected for next year)

A country is a distinct territorial body or political entity. It is often referred to as the land of an individual’s birth, residence or citizenship.

A country may be an independent sovereign state or part of a larger state, as a non-sovereign or formerly sovereign political division, a physical territory with a government, or a geographic region associated with sets of previously independent or differently associated people with distinct political characteristics. It is not inherently sovereign.

Can we create an independent country in international ocean waters , like in the ocean? This question can be made now since we have the technological capability to develop a floating city, even a country in international waters.

We could also create an island but we would need to obtain sovereignity which was never granted before in history.


The solution can include:

This is the call of this competition, create a country, with the right technology , systems and subsystems, (from health care, education, governance, economic system etc) but also with a right approach to obtain sovereignity for the political point of view. Including policies, strategies , possibility of growth, foreign relations, rules and regulations to protect the marine ecosystem and more.


The proposal will be I writing , max 40 pages and other 8 pages for images, charts and diagrams needed to visualize the basic concepts.
