Nowadays, almost all stuff can be rented. But for sure, you haven’t thought about that a whole COUNTRY can be rented as well, right? Well this just proves that almost anything we see and we wanted can be rented nowadays.
I first saw this information on Reddit so I decided to dig up a little more about it. According to a blog post at airbnb.com, you can rent the country of Liechtenstein for $70000 a day!
Liechtenstein is a doubly landlocked German-speaking microstate in Central Europe, A principality, it is a constitutional monarchy headed by the Prince of Liechtenstein.It has the highest gross domestic product per person in the world when adjusted by purchasing power parity. It is also the richest (by measure of GDP per capita) country in the world, and has one of the lowest unemployment rates. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LiechtensteinAirbnb, in partnership with a Liechtenstein-based event production and marketing company, brings the Principality of Liechtenstein, 6 Austrian villages, 3 German towns, and 1 Swiss ski-resort village to the rental community.
According to an article posted at Huffington Post, Snoop Dogg once tried renting the said country for a video shoot.
“Rapper Snoop Dogg hoped to bump up the production scale of his new music video to an even greater level -- by renting out the entire country of Liechtenstein.
According to reports, Snoop Dogg approached the government of the tiny European nation -- which has an estimated population of 35,000 -- to see if he could use the entire country as the set for an upcoming video.”
Renting the whole country of Liechtenstein will allow booking a large portion of the municipality’s available accommodations. Also, as what Airbnb stated, you can rename city streets and town squares (as long as you are there, renting the whole country) and even print your own temporary currencies as well.
When you land at the country you rented, the mayors and marching bands can welcome you with a festival and present you the key to the city, symbolizing that you are now the temporary KING or OWNER of their whole country.
