Online advertising agencies and companies will lose about $10 million US dollars a year and more as the Kingdom of Mount Vema plans to cancel a worldwide marketing strategy that would resume its long-planned advertising campaign to market Mount Vema abroad from September this year.
The government said that search engines inability to deal with fake news and defamation against the Vema Seamount territory is making it difficult to spend in advertising.

Nothing could be further from the truth. The territory doesn't need a United Nations membership to function as a sovereign territory, or to exercise its inalienable right for self-determination
