Google’s unofficial motto has long been the simple phrase “don’t be evil.”. It has been part of the company’s corporate code of conduct for along time. However, Google retained its original “don’t be evil” language until the past several months. After a corporate restructuring under the conglomerate Alphabet Inc. in October 2015, it took "Do the right thing" as its motto, also forming the opening of its corporate code of conduct, until slowly “Don’t be evil,” was almost entirely removed from the technology giant’s code of conduct.
According to independent reports the famous motto is now included only once in the 6,313-word document, right at the very end as a final aside: “And remember… don’t be evil, and if you see something that you think isn’t right – speak up!”. Well, Google, we are. You see, when Vema Seamount and its adjacent waters was declared sovereign, Mount Vema was informing the public through google sites. A platform to publish basic websites at the time.
Because it was a work in progress, new ways of publishing the official works of the realm were being introduced, which became what is today www.mount-vema.com. That is when the problem started. Don’t be evil, became evil. Google the tech giant started to abuse its dominance by manipulating search results against: Mount Vema, Kingdom of Mount Vema, and anything related to the City of Mount Vema project.
When Mount Vema was using google sites as the official sites, it ranked top on its search engines. When Mount Vema moved to other service providers it was punished by Google. Now it goes like this, Google places negative articles like the ones created by geek.com on top of their search engines, then Google contacts Mount Vema to advertise, so to enable Mount Vema or the Kingdom of Mount Vema to be placed back on top of Google search engines, it has been like this for years, until Mount Vema officials realised what was happening and stopped advertising with Google.
Mount Vema lost so much money, in investments and deals because of Google, until Mount Vema concluded that it was fighting pure evil. Who uses an article written by a racist organization who gets away with it in the name of free press, and that organization is www.geek.com.
Geek.com calls Mount Vema a: crazy, elaborate scam of the underwater Kingdom of Vema. It starts with: “If you haven’t heard of The Kingdom of Mount Vema, don’t worry: it is very tiny and, at the moment, none of it is above water.” That is correct. It is tiny, and none will be above the water unless the Vema Seamount Authority says so.
“The future floating Kingdom of Vema is actually a seamount, a mountain under the sea that does not break the surface of the ocean. Vema Seamount is in the Atlantic ocean off the coast of South Africa, and is notable because Googling it to find out more will send you down a very crazy internet, potentially money laundering rabbit hole.” Well, well informed people would describe it different. Vema Seamount, its adjacent waters and its manageable natural resource (fish) which can be exported as food and related seafood products, is a manageable territory. So, we don’t see any crazy internet or potential laundering rabbit hole, here. Maybe in the crazy internet world of geek.com
“According to a network of websites, Vema Seamount declared itself a sovereign territory in 2006, and the Sovereign of Mount Vema — His Majesty King Peter Goldishman of Mount Vema — declared himself the leader of “The Kingdom of Mount Vema,” a mountain he would pile sand on top of to make an island by 2014. He would then hold his coronation and preside over many happy tourists and scientists who would immigrate there.” There are, no network of websites, simply sites published to provide the services needed to maintain the territory. “Peter Goldishman declared the territory sovereign”, so what, anyone could have done it. Vema Seamount didn’t belong to anyone. We see no piles of sand anywhere. That is very unlikely to happen for an economy which depends mostly on fish. Monarchy is the chosen system of Government, nothing more. We see no one preparing for coronation.
“For how much information is available about the Kingdom at mountvema.com, you’d think there would be more about the plans to build an entire functioning kingdom on top of the seamount, but the subjects of King Peter seem to think this diagram of the kingdom’s territories (fiefdoms?) answers all the basic questions anyone could have about building a floating country:” Perhaps www.geek.com never heard of ‘work in progress’.
“Considering there is, at this moment, nothing above water in the Kingdom of Mount Vema, it might surprise you that the country has a market claiming it can ship things to you, a group that plans dance-based networking events, and a Miss Mount Vema Pageant. Mount Vema also has currency, which is graced with the face of His Majesty King Peter Goldishman:” Although you www.geek.com have just contradicted yourself. We are happy to break it down for you: Yes, it has a market, and shipping is possible to support any vessel scheduled to stay at sea in Mount Vema for longer periods of time. The shipping company advertises its price as a guide to enable others to better plan, in term of cost. Events are part of the plans, it helps business people and individuals plan ahead, unless www.geek.com operates on day-to-day bases. No budget, no schedule, nothing. Currency, sorry www.geek.com, we much rather manage our own finances, and have on our currency the face of anyone we wish to.
“Whereas the details about ballroom dancing lessons and an “active” TV station are entertaining, the amount of attention paid to building a phony economy are telling. The Kingdom of Mount Vema doesn’t seem to be a whimsical fantasy, like when you and your childhood friends declared your backyard was seceding from the United States — it seems to be a front for some sort of scam.” Sorry www.geek.com unfortunately some of us and I am certain that Peter too, didn’t have the luxury that you and your childhood friends had of declaring your backyard as seceding from the United States. We, just like the founders of the United States, are trying to build a new world. No scam here, we have reasons to aim to build something new for ourselves. I am sure you don’t need to think that way, because if you did, you would have interpreted our vision differently.
“At the very base level, this is likely a Nigerian Prince scam. In the age of the more savvy internet user that can easily Google and realize that Nigeria declared themselves a Republic in 1963, it helps to have royalty that actually appears legitimate when you are trying to fleece people out of money.” Peter Goldishman is not from Nigeria, and just the fact that you are associating him with Nigeria it shows just how racist you are and how racist your article is. Peter is a black man, you could associate him with any other black or white person from any other country, but it must be Nigeria. Is it that all Nigerians are the same? We don’t think so.
There is so much about your crazy and backwards thinking news article, that it would take us the entire week to respond. The only sad thing is that it is the same malicious news article that people use to judge us, including Google. Google uses it against Mount Vema when it comes to rankings on its search engines. As if Mount Vema and geek.com were some sort of competitors, and then Google says don’t be evil, well who is being evil? Not us!
In 2010, the EU began its investigation, after British price comparison site Foundem, French legal search engine eJustice.fr, and Microsoft-owned Ciao from Bing complained that Google's practices put competitors at a disadvantage. But the regulators didn't formally accuse the Google of an antitrust violation until 2015. The commission analyzed the results of 1.7 billion real Google search queries—around 5.2 terabytes of data—and concluded that, on average, the company placed results from competing online shopping services only on the fourth page of its results.
Google has largely escaped similar scrutiny in the US. Federal Trade Commission staffers recommended a lawsuit against Google over unfair business practices back in 2012, according to documents acquired by The Wall Street Journal in 2015. But, ultimately, FTC commissioners decided not to pursue a lawsuit after Google made a few changes, such as allowing companies like TripAdvisor and Yelp opt out of having their content used in Google's own services.
This year, Sir Tim Berners-Lee has launched a "Magna Carta for the web", warning that tech giants must change their ways to save the online world from the dangerous forces they have unleashed.
Sir Tim, who invented the World Wide Web in 1989, called for a "revolution" in how the internet is regulated and monetised in order to stem abuse, political polarisation and fake news. Speaking at the Web Summit in Lisbon to launch a new "contract for the web" he asks internet companies to uphold a set of principles such as protecting privacy and being transparent about their algorithms. Facebook and Google have backed the contract, which will be agreed in detail next year, despite both companies being mentioned by its creator as examples of how "the web we know and love" is under threat. “…we have people being profiled in a way that they can be manipulated by clever ads…” He said. Will they do something about it? Will see.
The internet traffic data for November 2018 shows how for the first time since the creation of the Kingdom of Mount Vema, China has joined the list of nations with growing interest in the City of Mount Vema development project, only second to the United States this month.
Internet traffic from the United States continues to lead for the sixth consecutive month when it comes to interest in the City of Mount Vema developments. But the speed of the growing interest from China indicates that the order of interest in likely to shift very soon.
Since the official language of Mount Vema is English, and the official website of the Vema Seamount Territory is all written in English only, it is a unique event. China at one time during the month of November was the country that most expressed interest in Mount Vema.
The report which is compiled on monthly bases, and published from time to time, shows that the popularity of the City of Mount Vema Project among people and the business community is becoming stronger in China than in the United States of America which is the country that visited Mount Vema official websites more than any other country.
There is a big difference between the United States and China in terms of the source of their interests. In the United States, internet traffic comes mainly because of advertised job vacancies related to Mount Vema, and companies providing services to Mount Vema who generally keep an eye on the project.
But, in China there was never an advert. Mount Vema never advertised in China, mainly due to the language barrier. The only business contact with China was through the process of chartering and buying ships, and even that the volume of activity was limited. So, the growing internet traffic from China was expected but limited at this stage of developments.
That is why many, especially people at the Gollexi (The Mount Vema Stock Exchange), believe that China could be the biggest surprise, as well as the long-term beneficiary of the City of Mount Vema project. The reason many believe that, is simply because the world tends to ‘wait and see’ what happens, joining when everything is done. The problem with that behaviour is that when you finally join, there is no room left in terms of opportunity, you must pay more to get in, and the benefits are not as great when compared to those who got in first.
What China is doing is what the United States used to do. The ‘visionary’ attitude, which is the reason why Mount Vema spent so much money in advertising in the USA, seeking to revive what America used to have, that visionary attitude either from individuals, corporations or at the government level.
Visionaries try to understand the idea, the concept, they then join when the trees are being planted or when the seed is being prepared. They help you plant it, and they help you look after the tree, so they can share the rewards. That is how visionaries think.
Unless there is a major shift in the geopolitical sphere of influences, with bold thinking in terms of international development, we are more likely to see China generating revenues in billions of dollars from Mount Vema in the next five to ten years, more than any other country simply because of the ‘wait and see’ attitude versus the ‘visionary’ attitude.
A new data released by the Mount Vema Department of Statistics and Risk Assessment says that consumer spending in Mount Vema will exceed 500 million golles, more than $1 billion US dollars a year.
The new figures come after the government started to include visitors due to an increasing number of people making travel plans to Mount Vema. Previously the Statistics Department released its estimates based on the number of accommodations allocated for each district that will total 250,000+ residents which was the amount of homes needed to keep the economy going.
This is the first time the figures are published, with the estimated number of annual visitors expected to attend annual events and tourism which as an industry, was never included in the estimates before.
For the economy to function as it is designed, Mount Vema will need more than 250,000 temporary workers within the next 10 years, with each district providing accommodation to just over 25,000 people to meet that target.
When the government published estimates, which are changed every quarter in line with economic developments, the market always anticipated that tourism estimates were coming. The new estimates today just confirmed what brokers and economists at Gollexi – The Mount Vema Stock Exchange have been commenting for years.
As developments entered a new stage, the Mount Vema Center for Statistics and Risk Assessment decided that it has enough data to include tourism. So, businesses serving 250,000+ customers including more than 1.5million estimated visitors per month, each spending just about 500 golles, they are likely to generate just over 50 million+ golles (more than $100 million+ US dollars) every month.
After fees and expenses there will be still about 40 million golles a month to be shared between traders serving the residents. The data explains why there is so much interest in business licenses and the increasing number of foreign companies and foreign governments investing in Mount Vema companies and government bonds either at the Gollexi or privately through lucrative deals with the Vema Seamount Authority. The key is to be always one step ahead of the market and identify the opportunities before the market catches up.
It is official. The construction of the City of Mount Vema starts on Monday the 19 of November 2018. The government confirmed today. Most of the work will start outside Mount Vema with the construction of precast concrete structures.
The structures will then be transported to Mount Vema throughout December 2018 and January 2019 to be used as the provisional port and as base for on site activities. In the meantime, security patrols will begin to maintain security and prepare for the arrival of the concrete structures.
The Vema Seamount Authority has issued a statement this morning to thank all participants. The Monarch has said that “Mount Vema is a place for innovative thinkers, and men and women of good character, with the will and the heart to get there either to expand their businesses, or to start fresh, and to prosper as far their talents permit, regardless of the colour of their skin”.
“As a new state, we will remain neutral but open to any proposal, and partnerships of mutual benefit. May God Bless us all on this journey”. Said Peter J. Goldishman – The Vema Seamount Authority, to mark the start of construction activities.
Construction of the tidal power plant proposed by vonMelyn – the utility company of Mount Vema will start in December this year and will be completed just before 2020. The project is designed to become a reliable source of electricity for the entire City of Mount Vema.
According to the company's plans, the output of the City of Mount Vema Power Plant network which will operate 24 hours a day will exceed 3200 MW with a power capacity the equivalent of just over 1 million homes. More than the capacity Mount Vema will needed to keep the lights on 24/7, as any excess energy would be stored for later.
Tidal power or tidal energy is a form of hydropower that converts the energy obtained from tides into useful forms of power, mainly electricity. Although not yet widely used, tidal energy has potential for future electricity generation. Tides are more predictable than the wind and the sun.
A tidal generator converts the energy of tidal flows into electricity. Greater tidal variation and higher tidal current velocities can dramatically increase the potential of a site for tidal electricity generation. Because the Earth's tides are ultimately due to gravitational interaction with the Moon and Sun and the Earth's rotation, tidal power is practically inexhaustible and classified as a renewable energy resource.
The City of Mount Vema tidal project is another boost for the Mount Vema economy in terms of engineering, construction and manufacturing. The technology concept is simple but innovative, supported by a network of floating structures with specially designed turbines. The structures are also especially designed to prevent any harm to the marine environment.
Because the Mount Vema economy will depend heavily on fisheries, the marine life was a huge factor when the concept was proposed. Precautions were made to ensure that the marine animals will not be affected. Also, the issue of acoustic output has been solved, where frequency and amplitude of sound generated by the tidal energy devices, can have varying effects on marine mammals (particularly those who echolocate to communicate and navigate in the marine environment, such as dolphins and whales).
Almost like a lagoon tidal power, the plant will have walls embedded with turbines that can capture the potential energy of tides. The network of reservoirs will be similar to those of tidal barrages, except that it will float.
The power plant will rely on variation of tides over a day to take its power from the Earth's oceanic tides. Tidal forces are periodic variations in gravitational attraction exerted by celestial bodies. These forces create corresponding motions or currents in the world's oceans. Due to the strong attraction to the oceans, a bulge in the water level is created, causing a temporary increase in sea level. As the Earth rotates, this bulge of ocean water meets the shallow water adjacent to the shoreline and creates a tide.
The tidal occurrence takes place in an unfailing manner, due to the consistent pattern of the moon's orbit around the earth. The magnitude and character of this motion reflects the changing positions of the Moon and Sun relative to the Earth, the effects of Earth's rotation, and local geography of the sea floor and coastlines.
Tidal power is the only technology that draws on energy inherent in the orbital characteristics of the Earth–Moon system, and to a lesser extent in the Earth–Sun system. Other natural energies exploited by human technology originate directly or indirectly with the Sun, including fossil fuel, conventional hydroelectric, wind, biofuel, wave and solar energy. Nuclear energy makes use of Earth's mineral deposits of fissionable elements, while geothermal power taps the Earth's internal heat, which comes from a combination of residual heat from planetary accretion (about 20%) and heat produced through radioactive decay (80%).
His Mount Vema Majesty’s Government has confirmed today that the Kingdom of Mount Vema will not allow imports of any vehicle other than electric. The territory will start importing cars as soon as next year first to move around the building sites and then for residents’ daily use.
Electric cars have several benefits over conventional internal combustion engine automobiles, including a significant reduction of local air pollution, as they do not directly emit pollutants such as particulates (soot), volatile organic compounds, hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, ozone, lead, and various oxides of nitrogen.
There are different types of electric vehicles, because an electric car's power source is not explicitly an on-board battery. Electric car with motor powered by other energy sources are typically referred to by a different name. For example, an electric car carrying solar panels to power it is a solar car, and an electric car powered by a gasoline generator is a form of hybrid car. Thus, an electric car that derives its power from an on-board battery pack is a form of battery electric vehicle (BEV). Most often, the term "electric car" is used to refer to battery electric vehicles but, may also refer to plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV).
Electric cars are less expensive to run than comparable internal combustion engine vehicles due to the lower cost of repairs and energy. However, on average they cost significantly more to initially buy, and they depreciate more quickly than conventional cars so, ARCKrove, the leading manufacturing company of Mount Vema is currently seeking deals and partnerships to make parts and assemble electric vehicles and components in Mount Vema to make it affordable for residents.
Companies registered with the Vema Seamount Territory (Mount Vema Registered Companies) must have a City of Mount Vema off-plan address, according to a new policy. The registered address is required for Mount Vema incorporated organizations to continuously display their City of Mount Vema off-plan address on their emails, brochures and websites.
The off-plan address of any legal entity of the Vema Seamount Territory, forming part of the public record, should be accepted as the required address where the registered organization or legal entity is incorporated.
The policy which was first introduced to increase the value of the City of Mount Vema off-plan properties seems to be working as more companies are reserving the limited number of available real estate plans before it is sold out. For example, this weekend alone a third of all development units for the financial district (Maryland MD08 Zone) where the head offices of the RBMV Bank, and GolleCard will be, have been reserved.
Also, a third of the development units for the technology district (San Miguel SM07 Zone) where the head office of MVScloud will be, have been reserved this weekend. Bavarolle, the real estate company of Mount Vema doesn’t list all properties for sale, but it told VSBCnews that demand is so high, it is increasing daily especially when the required deposit to secure a development unit is only 1000 golles (about $2000 US dollars). A deposit in some areas like Pashant (PT01 Zone) where the office of MONTfisheries will be, reservation prices are already at 3,000 golles per development unit from 1,000 golles last month.
Because a registered office address does not have to be where the organization conducts its actual business or trade, the Mount Vema off-plan address in now accepted to be used on headed papers and other documents for legal and filling purposes, to indicate that it is a legal entity registered with the Vema Seamount Territory.
Law firms such as VANDER Legal, and accountants are due to start providing registered off-plan office address services to any business seeking a Mount Vema off-plan address. A company providing such service must either own or rent a Mount Vema property off-plan, and such off-plan property must be licensed to conduct such business activity.
As of today, documents and official e-mail correspondences for an incorporated organization (e.g. formal notices, service of process, tax and government communications) must show the registered off-plan office address as recorded on the register. Such address may also be used by company directors instead of their private home address for contact on the register. The company director’s personal records will be kept with the register and will not be available to the public except for legal inspection.
If a Mount Vema company is involved in any legal proceedings, the case will be presided over by a Court of the governing jurisdiction (in this case by the laws of Mount Vema). Directors can change their registered office but cannot move it to another country after company formation. So, it would be a good idea to set up a business address in Mount Vema just to expand the geographical reach or the trading activities of your business if you don’t wish to register with the Vema Seamount Territory.
Handy Deed announced today that it will begin works with several concrete specialist companies outside Mount Vema to produce the moulds to build the first set of precast concrete to be delivered to Mount Vema which will be used as provisional port and as base for construction activities.
The precast concrete structures will reduce construction time by up to 50%, as the project becomes close to reality thanks to the increasing number of private, corporate and foreign governments investing in Mount Vema securities at Gollexi – The Mount Vema Stock Exchange.
The increasing number of exporters listing products for sale to Mount Vema corporations and government agencies via GolleMARKET, is also helping the project significantly as it is becoming easier for Mount Vema companies and government agencies to find businesses and governments listing and willing to sell goods and services to the Vema Seamount Territory.
The precast concrete moulds will include tetrapod moulds and other precast shapes with better inherent anti-corrosion characteristics and more sustainable material than steel for this type of construction such as the Port of Mount Vema, the floating city docks and the breakwaters.
His Mount Vema Majesty’s Ship ‘HMVMS Mount Vema’ will be ready by the end of the month and will be the first vessel to arrive to start works over Vema Seamount. The ‘HMVMS Mount Vema, is the sovereign’s ship equipped with everything needed to build the island.
The vessel is more like a "Green Yacht" with a minimal environmental footprint. An Explorer and Support Vessel designed for support operations, with reinforced hull, stabilizers, excellent seaworthiness and comfort at sea + a cruising speed exceeding 20 kts.
The vessel which is fully owned by the Vema Seamount Authority, is very reliable and comes with a fitness/spa area, entertainment area, swimming pool, and accommodation for up to 36 guests, and 100 crew members.
The ‘HMVMS Mount Vema’ has an extensive main deck area and large spaces for storage of tenders, exploration equipment, offshore construction support equipment, survey, research, large freezers which can be used when deep sea fishing, landing and storing of helicopter facility with heli-garage, including submarine storage, and dive center.
It comes with a yacht-quality accommodation, a hospital, and desalination capability, making it capable to assist and supply any vessels with extensive storage for provisions which enables it to stay at sea for up to 2 years without the need to refuel. The vessel can also process and recycle its own waste, generate electric power and can maintain contact with land-based operations anywhere with its state-of-the-art communications system.
Peter Goldishman – The Vema Seamount Authority today authorised the Mount Vema fishing industry to initiate commercial fishing activities from November at the same time as the scientific and construction sector, as part of a new plan to make sure the project pays for itself.
Just the fishing industry alone can generate more than 400 million golles in foreign exchange annually, but because the annual target will be less than the figures planned for 2025 onwards, the government expects to generate a comfortable USD $500,000,000 figure per year before 2025.
The fisheries plan was first introduced in 2014, but it was cautioned by the Vema Seamount Authority who was at the time reluctant to engage in commercial fishing activity over Vema Seamount, as he was more interested in good management of fisheries as essential to meet international obligations in terms of food supply. Now with all the resources available Peter Goldishman feels the time is right to start.
The 2018-2024 fishing revenues will be used to fund the City of Mount Vema project starting with the breakwaters, and the Port of Mount Vema. However, from 2025 His Mount Vema Majesty plans to join the list of top fish exporting countries as part of a long-term initiative to help combat hunger with fish and fishery products. The territory plans to reach and maintain annual targets of 200,000+ tons by 2025, to generate more than 400 million golles of fish stocks from both capture and aquaculture.
Back in 2014, the Vema Seamount Authority concerns were justified due to a report that fish trade was not only helping poor countries shore up their food security situation but was also increasing international demand that was at times resulting in excessive fishing pressure, leading to the over-fishing and wasteful use of stocks.
The Vema Seamount Authority aim since the creation of the Kingdom of Mount Vema, was to ensure that demand is always balanced with sustainable management. Today’s announcement is an indication that the territory is ready and that the Royal Mount Vema Coast Guard, supported by private armed security firms will finally be deployed to ensure that no more unregulated fishing activities take place within the Vema Seamount Territorial waters and the City of Mount Vema can be completed on schedule.

Mount Vema introduces policy that will make the territory a plastic free state. Unless the plastic item can be reused again, again and again by the consumer or the manufacturer, it will have no place in Mount Vema society. The Government announced today.
People travelling to visit or work, should ask first if not sure, which items are allowed in Mount Vema. The list will be available at www.mount-vema.com, and will be updated from time to time.
If you are thinking about bringing any plastic to Mount Vema, make sure it is reusable, otherwise you should try to bring a paper option, to avoid a fine, plus your item been confiscated and held for you to take it back when you return to your home country.
Always consider reusable water bottle for example. Eggs in a paper carton instead of plastic packaging, toilet paper wrapped in paper rather than plastic, anything in a box instead of a plastic bag or plastic container.
Mount Vema has introduced a new policy that establishes some economic barriers to entry. The barrier is a cost that must be incurred by a new entrant into the Mount Vema Market when incumbents do not have or have not had to incur.
The policy was introduced to protect those who come first, such as distributors or retailers, trademarks, servicemarks, patents owners and the supply chains. The policy is part of a plan to support those companies who are joining the project at this crucial stages of development.
Companies will need distributor agreements, an exclusive agreement which must be made with licensed distributors or licensed retailers. Potential entrants will require access to equally efficient production technology as the one already in use in order to freely enter the market. Trademarks, Servicemarks and Patents owners have the legal right to stop other firms producing a product for a given period of time, and so restrict entry into the market. Also exclusive agreements with key links in the supply chain will be required.
Mount Vema will be a small market, but the key is to be one step ahead and identify the opportunities before the market catches up. In this type of environment, the early investors always enjoy the rewards.
Considering that for the economy to work just in terms of management of its natural resource (fish), a single district will provide accommodation to 25,000 people, which is roughly the number of accommodations allocated for each district that will total 250,000+ residents.
These are the residents that will manage seafood production, distribution, sales and marketing to the world, revenues, investments, maintenance of the fisheries infrastructures, including ships. They will all need to do their daily shopping, banking, take children to school, socialize and be entertained from time to time.
If you are a business serving 250,000+ customers including visitors, spending just about 500 golles a month each, that can generate more than 12.5 million golles (about $25 million dollars) every month, with some fees and expenses maybe just about 10 million golles a month that will be shared between government and traders.
Small income for some, but steady and reliable income for others. These figures do not include the real estate market, or any other sector. So if you are a good businessman or businesswoman, you could aim to secure at least a share of this income. A business generating at least 500,000 golles a month ($1 million dollars or $12 million US dollars a year) can go a long way.
Prince William, The Duke of Cambridge was invited to visit the Vema Seamount territory in November 2020. The invitation was issued on October the 16th and was posted on Thursday 18th, which is likely to be the last official invitation to be issued this year.
Anyone who knows the evolutionary history of Mount Vema, would expect the Monarchy of The Netherlands and The British Monarchy to be among the first to be invited, and especially the British Monarch - Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, one of the most respected and admired heads of state, but because of security issues no invitation was sent until now.
The Vema Seamount Authority was exploring other means of issuing the official invitation because the British Monarchy can only be officially invited by post. The problem was that Mount Vema stopped sending or accepting postal correspondences more than two years ago.
Most official correspondences from Mount Vema are either electronic using forms available on its official website which are generally encrypted and free from virus, or face-to-face. But because of deadlines, an exception was made and a postal invitation was finally sent.
The reason the Vema Seamount Authority avoids postal correspondences is not only to make Mount Vema environmental-friendly, but more for security reasons, as letters require screening for suspicious items or substances that could be a threat to general security, and therefore can be read by anyone who may not be authorized to read its content and who may not understand the importance of its content.
Employees and job applicants having their travel arrangements paid for by the employer to work in Mount Vema , including holiday travel arrangements for 2018, until December 31st, 2019 should complete their job application by midnight on Friday - October 19, 2018.
Any application completed after Friday will not be included as part of the free travel program. If your job will require regular visits to Mount Vema, we advise to apply for your entry visa by or before Friday, and inform the employer or contractor that the completion of your job application is subject to a successful temporary work visa application, in order to qualify for free travel.
The financial assistance policy, introduced to help employees with travel expenses expires - October 19, 2018. Those who don’t have their entry visa ready when called for work, will pay for their own ticket and will make their own arrangements if they wish to travel to Mount Vema for work.
Anyone planning to visit the territory independently, including job applicants, contractors, and sub-contractors, should book their ticket at www.w-southern.com.
Handy Deed, the leading building company of Mount Vema is officially bidding to build the aquaculture installations project in Mount Vema, after expressing interest in the project announced by MONTfisheries in August this year when the fisheries company instructed W-Contractors to search for companies to design and build its aquaculture installations project with minimal or no damage to the Vema Seamount marine environment.
The deal made in August, just hours after W-Contractors launched an international campaign to hire sales representatives to invite businesses and organisations to bid for City of Mount Vema projects, both for corporate and government contracts, was part of a plan to expand recruitment that started in New York City – United States, to find potential contractors and sub-contractors with the aim to attract businesses willing to bid for contracts. The sales representatives would strive to secure repeat deals wherever possible and maintain good relationships with those contractors or sub-contractors who would become existing bidders.
With so few companies applying to build the installations, today after a number of consultations and an international recruitment campaign that led to the hiring of Project Architects and Engineers, Handy Deed, the leading building company of Mount Vema said it is ready to bid for the MONTfisheries contract, in line with government policy, which states that competition must be open to everyone and contracts must be awarded to the best proposals.
MONTfisheries aquaculture project will not only be beneficial to the economy, but it will also provide for crucial ecological functions and could potentially increase abundance and maintain biodiversity. The shelter will raise stocks of prey fish and small crustaceans by increasing recruitment opportunities in turn providing more prey for higher trophic levels
With two runways in the south of the island where issues and problems of land-based airports could be minimized by its location several kilometers off the residential area, The Ministry of National Development and Land Maintenance confirmed that the construction of the City of Mount Vema international airport should be completed by 2020.
Takeoffs and landings would be over water, not over populated areas, thereby eliminating noise pollution and reducing risks of aircraft crashes to the population. Since little of the ocean's surface is currently being used for human activity, growth and alterations in configuration would be relatively easy to achieve with minimal impact to the environment.
Water taxis and other high speed surface vessels will be a part of the offshore mass transit system that will connect the airport to the community with minimal traffic issues. Most of the airport will be made of floating structures which will have less impact on the environment than the 100% land-based alternatives.
The airport would not require much, if any, dredging or moving of mountains or clearing of green space and the floating structure will provide a reef-like environment conducive to marine life, and extra benefits to the community as wave energy could be harnessed, using the structure to convert waves into energy to help sustain the energy needs of the airport.
The City of Mount Vema plan has been redesigned to extend the Port of Mount Vema in the north of the territory and to add a second runway to the Mount Vema international airport project, which has been moved to the south according to the new master plan to increase capacity.
The Mount Vema Airport, will be a major international airport in the region. Now it lies south of the City of Mount Vema on the planning boards, with two parallel east–west runways along with an operational terminal on the site, to be the primary hub for W-Southern.
The terminal will lie within 5 kilometers by ferry to the airport from the Pashant Terminal, or 14 to 30 minutes driving (a 14 kilometers distance if driving at 60 km/h) depending on the traffic via the Mount Vema highway which will connect the airport with the city through the Port of Mount Vema.
The Port of Mount Vema will be a deep water port, designed to handle every kind of traffic.
MVScloud the IT company of the Kingdom of Mount Vema announced today that there will be WiFi - internet connection in Mount Vema from the day the first ships arrive. The announcement confirms what the company said back in May this year that it expects to have all systems ready, and to be operating by the end of the year.
People travelling to Mount Vema for work, will find internet-based communications in the island available to contact family, friends or co-workers. Everyone will be able to send an instant message to a friend, e-mail co-workers, make phone calls, and conduct video conferences.
Residents who will be living aboard will be able to save money on phone calls by sending someone an instant message or by using VoIP instead of standard local telephone services. According to MVScloud.
The news, which was welcomed by all project participants when it was first announced by W-Contractors, the main procurement company of Mount Vema who announced that it has been able to identify systems in the open market that will meet the needs of MVScloud back in April this year, indicates that a deal could be reached very soon between MVScloud and the internet system suppliers.

The Right to Self-Determination
Many believe because our community is not a member of the United Nations and is only just over a decade old, doing business with the Kingdom of Mount Vema is not possible for foreign nationals and foreign companies seeking to take advantage of the business opportunities the floating city project is creating. 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
