I know some people who would dearly love to be involved in something like that. They've even got decent money, but I'm guessing the purchase price of that land is bigger than the GDP of several nations.
Considering that the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex is about 9000 square miles, and that land is about 1500, it's a far cry from having "your own country" (at least to a Texan). Hell, the King Ranch is that big all by itself.
I might be able to find some prime West Texas land for a far cry cheaper
overtake the uninhabited wasteland that lies between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, PA and proclaim ourselves the Apple fritter nation. Anything from Westmoreland county on the west side to Lancaster county on the east side. Let Tom run the whole thing from his area, and we're good! That being said, PA's cultural clash can be resolved with this area, as Western PA can become West Pennsylvania, and Eastern PA can be still be called Pennsylvania. Tom, I'll even help you overtake the western half of this area, provided that I can be the western territory's governor.
I keed about calling central PA uninhabited wasteland. I've only ever lived on one end of the state at any time. Bucks county during my childhood, and now Allegheny county after living in Florida for a few years.
i say tht we join forces with the 68kMLA and take over this land in PA!!!
It seems the only large lots of land left are either in deserts or jungles.
... that the Amazon basin regularly floods. This particular parcel of land may not be one of the flood-prone areas, but even so, with critters like the Piranha and the Candiru -- which has a really nasty propensity to do really nasty things to people -- I'd think twice about relocating to the Amazon basin, no matter how many Mac-ophiles there might be.
Our first industry will be Candiru-proof underwear.

ok. this is what we do:

Couldn't we just write a virus that deposits fractions of a cent from every transaction into our big bank account and install it on the bank computer? Like what they did in Superman III. That was a pretty good movie, come to think of it.
I still say we should take over the uninhabited central portion of Pennsylvania though. All we need for success there is to put together a zombie creating virus that only spreads through bites, hole up in the Monroeville Mall or the Winchester for a while, and then start taking out the newly created zombies one by one. It could be argued that this would be a good way to take over the world though. Killing off all those zombies would be a problem, as they would have to be neutralized by removing the head or destroying the brain.
Just my $.02
That was also attempted in the 1999 movie "Office Space"
Yep.. all 112 of them...
It really depends on which part of West Texas you get. You can have desert, mountains, or high plains forest, take yer pick.
I guess the only problem would be the lack of wild animals that can kill you. Even the scorpions are tame.
Yeah, nevermind... It was a bad idea...
You'd have to worry about coal fires if you go for central PA, though. Take over Greenland!
This is why I'm suggesting central PA. Nobody would expect it! That, and we can operate out of Centralia, and mobilize from there. Since it's a ghost town, nobody will even know that we are there!
so when do we move in???
There are still a few houses left (and good for them) in Centralia, and lots of tourists, too. But if you're looking for a ghost town that might need some cleaning up...
