Take my country. No, really - take it.

Summary:

Quote:
A Latvian posted a petition pleading Roman Abramovich to buy the country - and over a thousand people signed.

Then again, it's not a first; earlier this year 2000 Latvians petitioned for Swedish occupation.

All of which fits right into a particular Baltic tradition of sorts, in which an "Estonian Royalist Party" once got 7% of the vote, back in 1992.

In case you're wondering, no, Estonia doesn't have a royal family. The party suggested that the Swedish Crown Prince, Carl Philip, or British Prince Edward, would do instead. They politely refused.

Interesting---
Carl Philip is not crown prince - his sister Victoria is crown princess.

@nimh,
That's kind of like someone stealing your lock and leaving the bike. Not complimentary.

Sounds like a great opportunity to obtain a country wholesale, rather than retail the way we do it in the U.S.
