Read this recent article by fellow witizen Stephen Reid:
The views expressed in the following article are not necessarily those of the Times of Wirtland.
I (Stephen Reid) will show how Wirtland requires innovation to avoid becoming a footnote in digital history. I will then compare two competing visions for Wirtland’s future.
Vision 1: In 2010 Wirtland’s owners wrote here about acquiring land from a cash-strapped country as sovereign territory for our virtual state, transforming it into a physical state. The people of Wirtland would buy this land from a donor country at USD 1000/square meter. With territory of its own, Wirtland can gain international recognition as a country in accordance with the Montevideo Convention. This would generate much-needed publicity and attract citizens. Economic and political growth would follow.
I will examine the difficulties with implementing this plan and the challenge in proving Wirtland has permanent residents (a requirement for recognition). Economic and political growth reflect citizens’ trust in their country, and thus far this plan hasn’t improved on it.

Wirtland is 11 years old. We wish to congratulate all witizens and fans on this glorious day, and wish you prosperity and happiness.
As the first sovereign cybercountry in the history of mankind founded in 2008, Wirtland pioneered the world of virtual nations, which has been growing steadily since then.
Wirtland remains an evolving experiment in legitimacy and self-sustainability of a country without its own soil, and hopes to bring new energy and modern technologies into the project, by attracting a wholly new management team. We hope the new team will lead Wirtland to a higher level and make it even more attractive to people.
Founded in 2008, Wirtland today is one of the largest and most stable virtual countries with a truly global representation. After over 10 years of successful growth, the founders of Wirtland have decided to sell the project.
In case of interest in acquiring all the assets and rights, including Wirtland.com and Wirtland.net domain names and websites, please email your proposal at any of our official addresses, or via social channels.
We hope the new ruler of #Wirtland will continue our mission!

On the occasion of 10 years anniversary of Wirtland, Chancellor of Wirtland has made a short interview to The Times of Wirtland.
Ten years have passed since you founded Wirtland. How can you assess the achievements?
We had our ups and downs, but most importantly, the influx of new people has never stopped during this 10 years period. Wirtland has survived and kept its attractiveness as alternative nation – that’s our most important achievement. Also, we managed to preserve our neutrality, which was not easy in the times of fierce international turmoil.
Some witizens complain about lack of activity in Wirtland. Can you comment?
We see our main task to establish Wirtland as a platform, and to keep it up, running, and operational. That’s what we have been doing successfully during the last decade. If level of activity is low that means that people are passive. Activities are now up to the citizens themselves – we just create the right conditions for them.
So, what should witizens expect from the government?
Wirtland was not set up to tax our members – we have a zero taxation policy. Wirtland was neither set up to entertain our members, by a regular flow of new initiatives and projects. We simply cannot afford this, because of zero taxation. I hope this is understandable. What we guarantee to citizens is the following:
- Correct operation of Wirtland platform;
- Full media support to citizens’ initiatives;
- Protection of citizens’ personal data.
What should be done to further develop the Wirtland project?

Happy Anniversary to all witizens and friends of Wirtland!
Today Wirtland is turning 10 years old. Ten years is substantial period for everyone; for a virtual state it is a record-braking lifespan.
Wirtland has managed to carry its flag and to survive through a turbulent decade, marked both by tremendous geopolitical changes all over the world, and remarkable progress in IT technologies penetrating the daily lives of everyone.
We are pleased to observe that the ideology of Wirtland has remained attractive, as we have been happy to welcome new citizens every week, coming from literally every corner of the world.
Thanks to this constant influx of new people, Wirtland is now accumulating more innovative ideas than ever. Wirtland is a country which helps our citizens to make their ideas real.
Wirtland wishes you prosperity, freedom, and independence!
