Founded by multinational corporations led by sneaky Filipino business visionaries in 1997, Avarice, was named after extreme greed for material gain by the contesting People's Republic of China, who were blindsided by their focus on the Hongkong Handover.
In 1991, the Chinese economic awakening was already feared by her ASEAN neighbors, prompting the formation of an ASEAN business conglomerate in the hopes of subduing China's economic advance-The Giatay Holdings.
Initially planning the construction of the world's first Aerotropolis in Fuga Island in northern Philippines, TGH's ambitions were met with hostile opposition by dim-witted Filipino politicians and overwhelming red tape and corruption leading to severe financial losses incurred by the company, and ultimately lead to the Fuga Aerotropolis' demise five years later.
In 1997, the coinciding Hongkong Handover, Chinese land grab in the Spratly Islands, China-Taiwan tensions and the Asian Financial Crisis paved the way to the idea of forming the world's first corporate micronation, on a "land" still uncontested, unclaimed and unchartered, and fortunately overlooked by both China and the Philippines- The Benham Plateau.
With the combined financial resources of the Dutch-experts in large scale land reclamation, the British- experts in full-line, full-service intercontinental organization, the Japanese-experts in swift construction and most proximate military ally, the South Koreans- with their global corporate expansion and the Filipinos- visionary experts in idiocratic fantasy and global manpower, the Giatay Global Gateway was born. After widespread opposition from China calling the GGG Atoll Tanlan or greed, GGG humorously incorporated the name calling, thus renaming the atoll Avarice.
Seventeen years later, the Republic of Avarice has gained international recognition as a sovereign micro state with a bustling containerport and a 3300m runway capable of landing virtually any aircraft, finally attaining the dream of the world's first modern Aerotropolis.

I have increased our donation amount due to a price increase from the hosting company. It happened last year but I've been covering it so far..... Also PayPal is charging more so I still end up covering extra amounts due to the exchange rate fees.Dismiss Notice
