It turns out that the Snoop Dogg was on to something: Last year, the rapper tried to rent out the entire country of Liechtenstein for a music video shoot. Now that idea is coming to the masses.

Geek.com reports that Airbnb, essentially eBay for the travel sector, has partnered with Rent a Village by Xnet (a company that does what Airbnb does on a local level) to provide a lucky traveler with the entire principality of Liechtenstein, which comes with a population of roughly 35,000.

So how does this work exactly?

Visitors can check in pretty much wherever their generous hearts desire: a wine estate owned by the prince, the heart of the Gutenberg Fortress or even the capital city of Vaduz.

As Airbnb says "renting a whole state definitely requires a certain ceremonial flair." Um, yes. True statement.

So what about the nitty-gritty details? The entire country starts at $70,000 a night, and can accommodate up to 900 guests in 500+ bedrooms (making $70K seem like a bargain). The minimum night stay--yes that is part of the deal--is 2 nights.
