The letter, posted by an unknown person on the petitonline.com website, reads, “As you may already know our homeland Latvia went bankrupt and is currently holding talks with the International Monetary Fund on the sale of our country for 7.5 billion euros ($10.7 billion)." The Latvian specified advantages of his country in the letter. "I would like you to consider the possibility of purchasing Latvia: the population is hard working and pleasant, environmentally clean area and plenty of space to dock your yacht," the letter said. Over 400 Latvian citizens signed the letter. Earlier in the year some 2,000 Latvian residents, the country has a population of around 2.3 million, posted a petition on the internet asking the government of Sweden "to occupy" their country. Latvia has experienced the worst economic decline in the European Union, with the country’s GDP declining for a third quarter this year by 4.6% against the same period last year. It is not the first fact of Internet-sale of the country. Recently a British citizen put Island on sale via eBay. The opening price of Island was 99 penny and grew to 10 million dollars at the end of sale.
