Maldives Beats Sweden to Second Life

Published onsdag 23 maj 2007 kl 13.21
The embassy is patterned on the real Swedish Embassy in Washington

Sweden’s plans to be the world’s first country to open an embassy in the virtual reality of Second Life have been dashed, after the small island nation of the Maldives, said it had opened its own embassy in the computer-generated world.

Sweden was hoping to be the first country to have a presence in Second Life, when it opens its embassy there on May 30, moved up from the original starting date of June 1.

The internet-savy Swedes have however been pipped at the post by the tiny island nation. Officials for the Maldives say they did not know Sweden had planned to open an embassy in Second Life.
