As Mount Vema continues its mission to find reliable suppliers for the City of Mount Vema, Citrus fruit is next. The government is looking to South Africa, Brazil, China, the United States, Mexico, India, and Spain, the world's largest citrus-producing countries to find deals.
Orange and grapefruit juices are expected to be very popular breakfast beverages in Mount Vema, including lemonade which will be processed to produce beverages (juices) for domestic consumption and exports.
Citrus fruits have well-documented nutritional and health benefits. They can help prevent and cure some diseases and has been associated with a 10% reduction in odds of developing breast cancer.
Oranges were historically used for their high content of vitamin C, which prevents scurvy, which is caused by vitamin C deficiency, and can be prevented by having 10 milligrams of vitamin C a day. An early sign of scurvy is fatigue. If ignored, later symptoms are bleeding and bruising easily.
Citrus fruit intake is associated with a reduced risk of stomach cancer. Also, citrus fruit juices, such as orange, lime and lemon, may be useful for lowering the risk of specific types of kidney stones.
Grapefruit is another fruit juice that can be used to lower blood pressure because it interferes with the metabolism of calcium channel blockers, and Lemons have the highest concentration of citrate of any citrus fruit, a daily consumption of lemonade has been shown to decrease the rate of kidney stone formation.

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
