Seems Sweden will be the first nation to open an embassy in Second Life.
Website “The Local” reports that Swedish Institute director Olle Wästberg told news agency AFP that Sweden is “planning to establish a Swedish embassy in Second Life” to provide passport information and “act as a link to web-based information about the Scandinavian country.”
The embassy “would not provide passports or visas, but would instruct visitors how to obtain such documents in the real world.”
