So it’s all fun and novel now, but what if these guys actually start to make it a reality??
The gist of it is that you, me, and your cat(?) can become citizens of the nation state of Asgardia.
Asgardia, officially known as the Space Nation of Asgardia is a proposal for nation announced on October 12, 2016 by Dr. Igor Ashurbeyli, the founder of the Aerospace International Research Centre and Chairman of UNESCO‘s Science of Space Committee. The proposed nation intends to promote peace and collaboration as mankind expands into outer space and ultimately aims to be recognised as a nation state. The draft constitution declares Asgardia to be a Constitutional Monarchy with Dr. Igor Ashurbeyli the Head of Nation. The draft constitution permits Asgardia to create laws that are legally binding on its citizens.
