A proposal

Wherein I'll deal with the winter Olympics in two years

Fact: The United Nations is a corrupt and morally bankrupt international organization premised on the fairy tale of international cooperation.

Fact: The International Olympics Committee is a corrupt and morally bankrupt international organization premised on the fairy tale of international cooperation.

Fact: Both regularly debase their original underlying purposes and habitually reward committee processes over fair play.

Fact: 90% of the world's population could not find the Canary Islands on a map. I made up that number but I'm 75% confident that it's 80% correct.

Proposal: United Nations and the IOC join forces to create a new body. Then they buy out a couple of the Canary Islands to create the independent Republic of Friendly Cooperation (ideals in mirror are further away than they appear). The UN no longer has to pretend to ignore New York parking laws and can freely invite any bloodthirsty dictator who pays for the privilege. The IOC now stages a neutral site where they control 100% of all licensing fees and graft generated by sponsorships and building contracts.

Upside: Not In My Backyard.

possible downside #1: Fewer Law & Order shows about law-breaking diplomats claiming diplomatic immunity.

possible downside #2: Opens the New York real estate market with the possibility that Donald Trump may build another ugly tower.

Event Trump can't build a building uglier than the UN Buildinig. At worst your second potential downside is a break even.

Canary Islands are a good suggestion, but I'm thinking not remote enough.

Howabout South Georgia?

And given that the UN promotes Global Warming alarmism, no fair flying there, or even using diesel powered ships, sail power, or feces powered ships only (cause that's something they should have plenty of . . .)

Oh, that South Georgia. I thought you meant around Americus/Dublin/Valdosta. A real hellhole. Makes Appalachia look cosmopolitan by comparison.

Howabout a rotating UN home? Jan-Apr on South Georgia Island, May-Aug in the South of the state of Georgia (Valdosta would welcome that UN bunch, I'm sure . . .), and Sep-Dec in the south of the Republic of Georgia (Batumi, in Adjara is on the Black Sea near the Turk border, that should work for their home that part of the year)

Empires from Persia, to Russia, and even Japan to some extent, used a moving seat of government as a way to quell and control the nobles (and to bankrupt them).

Having to corrupt 3 separate local governments could get expensive and tiresome.
