Reddit Island

A piece of reality owned by the internet.

We are planning on buying a real island for redditors by redditors of the redditors.

And we need your help in this mission of ours. This is a community backed, crowdfunded project. And right now what matters most is your donations.

INFO: An official funding channel is now live.

What is this?

A simple reddit post that started as a joke, sparked the idea of actually buying an island for redditors. One thing led to another and we ended up with a subreddit, r/Reddit_Island.
Currently we have this website as our official news channel and plan to expand this idea further.

We have not yet planned on the details yet but a GoFundMe campaign has been setup and we are now officially taking donations. Note that we are not accepting donations via any other channels.
If you made a donation, you have booked your place on the island. Simply make the donation and send proof to mods. This way your name will be listed in the hall of donators and you will get a user flair. Once the island is setup, you simply have to show your reddit account to get access.

Note that all your payments are protected by GoFundMe as stated on their website. In case of any fraud or any mishap, your payment is completely protected and refundable. For further information, refer to gofundme.com/safety

This is officially now part of internet history.

Reddit Island / Memeland refers to a plan by Redditors to buy an island or series of islands and declare an independent nation known as "Memeland" for Redditors to move to. The planning began on April 30th, 2021, resulting in the subreddit /r/Reddit_Island and numerous memes about it appearing on the platform in early May.

Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

No. We will be purchasing an island that has a country of origin. We will be bound by that country’s laws.

Most likely not.

Has YTBD (yet to be determined). There is so much going on behind the scenes working and researching this project to see what is feasible.

*Official Answer: *you’re

First of all, u/yurmomsuxme, that’s not a question, secondly, no you suck! The gofundme was for $5555 to Incorporate and start market media and unfortunately was set up by minor and it was pulled. If you haven’t been dropped on your head a lot as a child, then you would know that donations made through gofundme and Kickstarter are refunded and protected 100%. Donors will be refunded by gofundme, all $251 dollars of it. Your money is better protected by them than it is when you go to Jimmie’s Next Day Sushi and Hot Wax Emporium on Fifth Avenue.

We are working on having this fixed to continue to obtain the funds to get this moving.

 Still not a question but let’s address it.

This will not work without a corporation structure. Why, you ask? Pretty simple…

Every country you go to try and buy an island from will do one of two things and in some cases both: Laugh at you all the way back to the Spirit Airlines terminal or plot about how easy it’s going to be to keep taking your money via “fee” after “fee.”

Also, do you have infinite amounts of money? Because that’s exactly how many dollars you will need to pull this off. You will be sued so many times that your Tommy Bahamas shirt will never see a drop of tropical sunshine.

Every purchase you make will have so many mark ups, taxes, tariffs, shipping fees, transport fees, custom fees, delivery fees, unloading fees, bribery fees and so on because you don’t have a corporation to protect you and have things done the right way. Nor will you be getting any of that back through tax credits because these are not the cost of business purchased items, you buying them, is just you buying them. A piece a lumber may cost you $47.69, where it would cost a Corp about two fiddy and accounting will figure out a way to write off $2.49 of it.

just an funny example, not real world

Yes, people will need to get paid and will get paid. That’s literally how it works. Would you trust the guy at I Fix Car to really fix your car if he had to do it for free?

 Depends. You will not be able to do like u/megacumblaster365 wants and “pitch a tent and boil my underwear on a open fire 🔥”

Realistically, there will be many factors that will decide on whether you personally will be able to come to the island. All countries have regulations on visitors and becoming a citizen. Your home country also has regulations on what countries you are even allowed to go to.

Becoming a citizen in some countries, in order to work, live and own property there, averages $500,000 out of your own pocket and can take several years. This is why you usually only hear about rich people retiring to the islands. This doesn’t even include requirements of savings and passing citizen tests and so on. And if you have a criminal history, like u/caughtredhandedin1984 , you can absolutely forget about nearly any country in the world allowing you to obtain citizenship.

It’s cool bro, take this Hugz Award and let me tell you….

This is why this is a mix use island endeavor. Not only will we have residential for full-time living but we will also have a resort for vacation visiting and work opportunities that will provide housing. Start saving up now.

Again, that depends. We currently have hundreds of awesome people who have sent in to help. I personally have well over 300 users that have reached out to me directly. It will depend on what skills you have as to when you may be needed. In the meantime, enjoy the sub and keep an eye out for updates.

Sorry, this is another depends. If you successfully fit the criteria that the country requires and you have the skills needed, then it’s a solid maybe, additional there will be some type of housing for on-site employees.

This also brings us back to why a corporation needs to be in charge. Do you want an unskilled person like, u/itzprobnotcrabs68 in charge of health and sanitation of your breakfast buffet? What about u/shiftyeyepete481 being in charge of Security?

Because if one component fails, we need to find another component that works. This is a ever evolving project that will not be completed for years. This isn’t Fortnight where you are airbus dropping in. This is careful thought and process.

We want this to succeed more than r/Superstonk wants GME to moon!

But it takes time and mistakes will be made and corrected along the way.

Be realistic, what did you think or expect? The world has laws, regulations and countries that control everything. There is no magic gnome that is going sprinkle magic butt dust on everything and make this suddenly appear. We will do the best we can with what we have but this isn’t going to change your own circumstances to how you can be involved. Sorry but that’s just the way it is. We don’t write the laws that control what can legally be done.
