We are probably accustomed in the era of Internet to hear sentences like: “ It doesn't matter where you are - with telecommunications you can be anywhere.” I.e. remote work probably works in many cases. But still we can't really forget our physical location. When the computer is switched off, what's left? A location affects not only our daily life, but most certainly also the way we experience the virtual world.

Economically Mega is in perfect location. Transportation is relatively good and there seems to be no hostile neighbors. The settlement has to be very mobile to move out of the way of farming work. Mega is indeed different than concept of many micronations, because it doesn't claim territory. It is also not temporary, because it is always in the minds of people who know about it and have visited it. Mega is a state of mind.
