“Honorable Mr. President,
You symbolize the hope for positive changes of the American people, and also of a major part of mankind. Please accept warmest congratulations and best wishes of success from the citizens of Wirtland, the world's first internet-based sovereign country,“ the Address read.
In the letter, signed by chancellor of Wirtland, it is also emphasized that among many features that make President Obama’s presidency unique, there is also an unprecedented use of modern internet technologies in his electoral campaign.
Chancellor of Wirtland expressed his belief in US President’s understanding of the concept and perspectives of the internet-based country, which transcends national borders without breaching or lessening the sovereignty of any countries.
True to the principles of consensus of the first web-based country, the official congratulation letter was written based on contributions from Witiziens, among which are people of Bulgarian nationality. Currently a significant portion of Wirtland’s population are of Bulgarian origin.
Wirtland is an experiment into legitimacy and self-sustainability of a country without its own soil. Founded just months ago, Wirtland currently represents about 300 people from all five continents.
