Asgardia wants you! In case you haven’t heard of the kingdom, that’s because it is member only. There are 200-thousand members of the space kingdom so far and its leader Igor Ashurbeyli, a Russian engineer, was inaugurated Monday. That was the last piece of the government put in place. It already has a parliament and a constitution.
The goal of Asgardia is to have 150-million citizens in 10 years. The kingdom, around that time, wants to have space arks in place that will permanently house the people on the moon or near it. They are even planning their internet network.
During his speech Monday, Ashurbeyli said “We have thus established all branches of government. I can therefore declare with confidence that Asgardia – the first space nation of the united humankind – has been born.”
- The annual membership fee is 100 euros and there is a tax system being worked out on businesses and private income, but it will be low. If you want to sign up to head to space in a decade, look here.
