Tourism: Rent Liechtenstein

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liechtenstein

In June 2003 the state tourism agency decided to give a boost to the country's tourism by offering to rent out the country to businesses and other organizations for conference hosting, weddings, or other such events. The company will be given keys to the capital city and be offered team-building/touristy activities and attractions, such as wine-tasting, tobogganing, and full access to one of the country's royal castles. Liechenstein is a little smaller in area than the capital of the United States, Washington, D.C..[5]

Karl Schwarzler, along with the entire nation of Liechenstein, was awarded the Ig Nobel Prize in Economics in 2003 for this unique enterprise.
