Buy an Indonesian island! Besides counting islands, Indonesia has more on it's hands. Just recently it became known that the website www.privateislandsonline.com is selling several Indonesian islands. Some of you will directly say that foreigners can not own any land in Indonesia, which is correct, and is also stated on the website. There is no freehold, only leasehold. So in fact you are not buying an island, you are leasing it.
