A Balkan Micronation in the Metaverse?

I continue to have my near-term doubts about all this.    But comes with 7000 residents!

 Inside Liberland, the Balkan Micronation Becoming First Country to Be Built in Metaverse

In EuroNews

The self-declared Free Republic of Liberland aims to become the first country to build and inhabit the metaverse, even before the strip of uninhabited land it has claimed between Serbia and Croatia is populated in real life. Liberland currently has 7,000 approved residents, and an additional 700,000 citizenship applications are being processed. The virtual city will allow its citizens to meet without officially entering the micronation, which is not yet a formally recognized country. Said Patrik Schumacher of Zaha Hadid Architects, which is designing a virtual city for the new nation, "In the coming age of VR [virtual reality] empowered cyberspace, it will be architects and no longer graphic designers who will design the coming 3D [three-dimensional] immersive internet: the metaverse."
