If you're an ultra rich person and you want to hide your wealth from the world's governments, it's hard to beat your own micronation. Project Utopia aims to be that type of place, as a floating globe hopping paradise for the people with money to burn.
Are you an ultra rich person who can't decide between a fancy new yacht, and getting your own little tropical paradise? Perhaps this concept that combines a bit of each in one massive structure could be the solution.
