Still getting offers from Nigerian princes to split a fortune locked up in a bank?

Here's something equally profitable: invest in Wadiya.

Wadiya, in case you haven't heard, is an east African country run by dictator General Aladeen.

Not really.

It's a movie from Paramount coming out in May starring Sacha Baron Cohen of "Borat" fame. As part of the buildup to the film's release, there is now a Republic of Wadiya website which includes a pitch to invest there. "Under the brilliant stewardship of Supreme CEO Aladeen, our state-run economy last year gave a 9000 percent return to such venerated individuals and corporations as BP...and Donald Trump."

Possible Wadiyan investments include:

  • Refuge disposal--"You name it, we'll bury it."
  • Personnel training--"Testimonies available from satisfied clients such as The Taliban, IRA and Pottery Barn."
  • Retirement Homes for international leaders seeking refuse--"We can even source your favorite foods - German, Yugoslavian or Chilean, for example - and arrange for you to carry out small-scale atrocities to remind you of the good old days."
  • Other parts of the website give your a history of Wadiya, a 500-day weather forecast, and suggested links, including Cash4Gold ("best rates paid for gold teeth") and the UN Commission on Human Rights ("hilarious site").
