Pay Pal founder and early Facebook investor Peter Thiel has given $1.25
million to an initiative to create floating libertarian countries in

Thiel has been a big backer of the Seasteading Institute, which seeks
to build sovereign nations on oil rig-like platforms to occupy waters
beyond the reach of law-of-the-sea treaties.
