Today is the 11th birthday of the Kingdom of Mount Vema. Mount Vema celebrates 11 years since the territory was declared independent, on the First of August of Two Thousand and Six. The day Peter Goldishman declared Vema Seamount a Sovereign Territory.
The Mount Vema Independence Day is an annual celebration commemorating the anniversary of the nation's assumption of independent statehood, the day in history when His Mount Vema Majesty the King Peter Goldishman declared Vema Seamount and its adjacent territorial waters a sovereign territory.
Yesterday the Government announced that all services provided by Mount Vema institutions including online will be closed for business this weekend including this week Friday.
This is the time of the year when the administration reports the condition of the Vema Seamount and the community, which will pave the way for the future Prime Minister to outline the legislative proposals for the upcoming year, the overall agenda of His Mount Vema Majesty’s Government and priorities to the community and the world.
The Government announced today that all services provided by Mount Vema institutions including online will be closed for business this weekend including this week Friday as Mount Vema celebrates April 25th Thanksgiving Day.
For the Kingdom of Mount Vema April 25th is a holiday celebrated primarily as a day of giving thanks for the birth of the founding father of the Vema Seamount society and the Mount Vema Community.
The Vema Seamount Authority, King Peter of Mount Vema was born on April the 25th 1974. The Mount Vema community celebrates this annual tradition with a thanksgiving meal where fish is part of the menu. The government has used Royal Mount Vema Proclamation this year, a rule used to move the celebration.
Just like in any other society, the Kingdom of Mount Vema has its own Bank holidays, when government institutions, banks and many other businesses are closed for the day.
Although the long weekend will bring much needed rest for some, there is no automatic right to time off for others, who are part of the team of support and emergency workers with no right to time off work, however they are guaranteed to receive extra pay for working on this bank holiday weekend.

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
