When you register yourself at various internet services, you often need to select your country from a drop-down list. So, I am talking about inclusion of Wirtland into such drop-down country list. This can be done very easily by a small change in the coding. Some websites have done that already for Wirtland. The latest example is Slovenian resource (see picture).
For Wirtland, this is important. And for the websites this is useful, too, because of marketing effect. "Our site recognizes virtual country" - is a slogan which helps to stand out, and may draw new clients. So, a small change in coding is well worth the effort.

This proves to be possible, despite natural limitations which we have as a virtual country. A good example is Wirtland Medical Centre (WIMEC), which has been growing since 2008. WIMEC was conceived to be a hub of online medical consultations, open 24 hours every day of the week, in a choice of languages. It serves two purposes:
- For users WIMEC is a unique service, where people can find the needed online medical consultant, who speaks their language. Consultation is done online through Skype call or video call. Users can rate the quality of consultations.
- For medical professionals WIMEC is an income-generating opportunity. Doctors give professional consultations, earning consultancy fees which they choose themselves, paid through Skype Prime. If you are a certified doctor, and you want to offer your services for WIMEC, you may add your listing here. You do not need to be necessarily a citizen of Wirtland.
WIMEC service is open to everybody (not just witizens). The users are encouraged to send their feedback with reviews of quality of consultations which they received. Doctors from all over the world are welcome to join WIMEC listing. Wirtland also opened WIMEC Group at for professionals.

Internet-based country of Wirtland announced partnership with AgilityHoster, which became the official web hosting provider or world’s largest cybercountry.
October 16, 2011 – Wirtland and AgilityHoster have entered into an alliance that is set to boost “Witizens of Wirtland” (WoW) – the fast-growing social network of Wirtland’s citizens – and to deliver top-level services to its global members.
“Partnership with a reliable, modern internet service company is a backbone of an innovative web project such as Wirtland. We hope cooperation with AgilityHoster will be long-lasting and mutually rewarding”, - said the head of state of Wirtland. “After 3 years of constant growth, our project has become ripe enough to have it own social platform, independent from commercial network providers, free for all members, and free from advertising”. The all-new WoW network can be found at usual unchanged address www.wirtland.net.
President & CEO of AgilityHoster said: “It was about time people to start associating the Internet as a virtual land and participating in virtual countries. We at Agilityhoster.com praise the freedom on the Internet and this is the reason we provide free web hosting services for all that want to upload web pages or website. Speaking for freedom and choice online we find so many similarities with Wirtland project. This is a new one unique and very exciting project of the modern and free minded people”.
To better protect personal data of citizens, the new WoW Network does not import automatically all nearly 2000 members from Wirtland’s old network. Instead, the existing members are encouraged to register new profiles.
Founded in 2008, Wirtland represents people from all five continents. Wirtland issues plastic ID cards, mints its own gold and silver coins. Wirtland's population is around 2,000. In 2010 Wirtland established The Wirtland Institute (www.wirtland.org) as a center for research and professional dialogue in the area of new forms of statehood.

There were many discussions about necessity of creation of an independent platform for WoW Network, which finally are leading to a concrete achievement. The first independent network is now open for membership and testing at http://witi.medianewsonline.com. It's yet in beta testing stage, but its functionality is extending every day. The good thing is that it's completely free from any non-Wirtland branding or advertising.
With time, all the content will migrate from old network to the new one. But this process is not automatic, and migration of 2000 member profiles by hand is a very complicated process. Therefore, we are encouraging every witizen to register himself/herself at the new network. We are also asking to consider voluntary donations to Wirtland (of $10 or above), to help us cover the costs of migration and new network setup. This is completely voluntary, non-obligatory support. Our Donations page is here.
The new network is based on customized version of BuddyPress software. The hosting provider is Wirtland's long-time partner Agilityhoster. Comments and suggestions from users will be appreciated. Feedback from programmers, designers, and other professionals interested in helping the project is also welcome. Wirtland's old and new citizens are welcome at new site!
