(Each question worth 10 pts each; total of 20 points) Question #1 : Congratulations! You just won the $750 million lottery jackpot and your first major purchase is to buy your own private island and to create your own country. What are the required components if you want your new island to be considered a sovereign state and welcomed as the newest member of the United Nations? In your response, be sure to acknowledge areas where you might have difficulty in achieving sovereignty and why that may be the case. Requirements: 1) a territory/autonomy (your island), 2) a government/ideology (capacity to govern), 3) population with a unified national identity, 4) formal recognition from the international community, especially the most powerful nations (i.e. the P-5 Members) Most difficult step is clearly the fourth one (formal recognition)—you already have the territory, you can easily establish a government/ideology with you as the leader, if there is only you on the island, you have a population (but even if you didn’t, you could develop that identity among the native population). But at the end of the day, even if you did those three things to completion, the international community is very unlikely to welcome you as a sovereign state or as a member of the United Nations because they a) won’t keep the ‘club of states’ exclusive and b) it would set a bad precedent to let a wealthy individual create a new country from scratch in this manner.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
