>After noting the terrible and, yes stupid, controversy about a cryogenic
physical plant, in either Russia or the US, it occurred to me that there is 
stable, libertarian government entrenched in the Dominican Republic.  The 
enjoyed increasing stability lately with a boon in tourism and ex-pats from
Europe and the US.  It is a "hands-off" government.  The country is easily
accessable from both Europe and the US and geologically stable.  This may be 
plausible location to consider.
