How would you like to own Iraq?

Shades of Dr. No. A Dubai development firm is creating a chain of 300 artificial islands in the Persian Gulf that form, in rough outline shape, all the continents of the world. See, Welcome to The World Each island is designated by the name of a country or region. For example, you can purchase an 2.4 hectacre island named Iraq. (If you visit their site, you gotta check out the "Master Plan") You can buy Virginia, Texas, or Illinois, but there is no Maryland. (It must have sunk because the legislature didn't approve slot machines.)

I also love the registration form. One has to designate the continent and island one is interested in as well as the "intended purpose" for your island (No, Doro, world domination is not one of the choices).
