Nuclear Submarine anyone? Keep the reactor gut out all that "destroying shit" nonsense like silos etc... Use the reactor to distillate water, use growth lights to grow food. Figure out some way to recycle the nuclear waste. Or baring that trade it to some country for more plutonium or uranium to fuel the reactor.

Go for it.  I would rather not live next to a nuclear reactor though. 


I don't think there would be enough space inside to grow anything worth growing, except maybe some herbs/spices, or probably some enterprising drug lord.  You could probably get enough light by cutting sections out of the hull and replacing it with thick plexiglass.  Life there would likely mean the development of a very Japanese type of diet.  A lot of fish and seaweed. 

Yeah I just threw that out there because it came to mind immediately. I don't know much about sailing. I SCUBA dive but I live in a desert and have lived here for much of my life. The idea seems like a good one though, definitely alleviates the problems of big brother.

You probably really can buy a lot of old Russian submarines, if you want to go that route.  There are of course other ways people have attempted underwater living.

I see something like this as extremely profitable. Who WOULDN'T want a country with complete freedom of capital and currency? I'm sure that most of the world's major banks and corporations would have their headquarters on the island; that way they can avoid various government breathing down their necks all the time. That alone would pay for the upfront cost, and depending on where its built I imagine a lot of workers would move there as well, as a complete lacking of a minimum wage would create plenty of job positions.

In short, I imagine the island becoming very prosperous very quickly.

Businesses that operate elsewhere follow the local laws.  They would still have various governments all over them regardless of the location of the HQ.

This idea could be used in conjunction with, or along the same premise, as the idea in the Thread "A New Land".

Lately I've been thinking that it need not be an either or type situation...

Why not make sail boats into seasteads and then start settling uninhabited islands? We could bring agriculture and what not to these lands to start off, while sailors go about trading and bringing stuff to settlers...

If it's going to happen it's going to have to be a team effort.

Uninhabited islands still are claimed by some country or another. 

It looks promising for now, however I don't want to fight a government to get it. I would rather just buy the island if possible. I don't think we could contest any governments claim to the island.

I find that it's time we start doing shit our way and ignoring other people.

I think people need to think more seriously about living in Antarctica. It's so much easier than trying to build an artificial structure at sea that may or may not last through its first hurricane season. All the fish and penguins you can eat. I'm not saying it would be a nice place to live (at least at first), but at least there is habitable land and some natural resources.

There is no need to travel to Antarctica. You should check out this thread, specifically the post titled: "~Beneath the Earth, Anywhere~"

That underwater hotel is truly incredible. Would love something like that. I am also very interested in Seasteading!

In addition to Seasteading, I'm also interested in space colonization. I hope to see that in my lifetime.
