The world has changed, but our systems are not keeping up. The internet and remote work has made the world into a global market, yet the infrastructure we live with is built along national borders, and national borders are still hard to cross. So much is decided based on where you were born, and not who you are.
Plumia is the moonshot mission to build an internet country for digital nomads. It's an umbrella brand for SafetyWing's efforts to increase the global mobility rights of people everywhere, whether it's through launching new products or co-designing policy with governments.
Work on the Plumia project is undertaken without any expectation of near-term profitability or other benefit. SafetyWing measures Plumia's performance based on the positive impact and social value it generates, as well as its progress towards the ultimate internet country goal.

✦ Our Values ✦
① Global Mobility
Everyone should have the right to move freely across the globe regardless of national borders, no matter where they were born or live.
② Equal Access
Everyone should have the right and access to the resources, services, information they need without personal, racial, or location-based discrimination.
③ Equal Opportunity
Talent is equally distributed, but opportunity is not. We believe that everyone should be able to earn a living while moving freely, or have the freedom to travel so they can pursue a better quality of life elsewhere.
④ Local to Global
Many problems facing humanity can only be solved at the global level. We believe that connecting local communities with global solutions is the best way to establish foundational infrastructures for modern life.
⑤ Authentic Community
We believe that honesty and transparency are key to establishing trust, avoiding corruption, and accelerating innovation in our community.
We believe that technology can encourage a diversity of voices and increase participation in internet-era institutions.
