Multi-millionaire biohacker Bryan Johnson has become a cult-like hero in the longevity world — but now he might actually become a president.

The tech mogul, 46, has amassed millions of fans — and an equal amount of critics — for his bizarre and shameless attempts to de-age himself, including swapping blood with his son, 17, and tracking his erections.

But the entrepreneur-turned longevity guru says he now plans to found his own ‘don’t die’ nation-state for fellow anti-agers.

It would welcome people from all across the world fighting to live longer, he said, and ‘pool’ its citizens’ resources to help everyone secure access to the tests, therapies and supplements they need to help de-age their bodies. 

Eventually, it would also negotiate with other nation states for special access to treatments. 

But citizens may have to forgo foods such as donuts and pizza because eating junk food would be considered ‘an act of violence’. Even Alcohol could be off-limits.

Bryan revealed his plan at the Livelong Summit in West Palm Beach, Florida, the first-ever longevity summit to be held in the US attended by doctors and the public alike — and by DailyMail.com.

When Bryan first appeared on screen, the crowd clapped and cheered — thrilled to see him and get the opportunity to hear him speak.

But a stunned silence fell across the room when Bryan revealed his plans, telling the audience: ‘I’m wanting to build a “don’t die” nation-state.

‘The idea is that there are a lot of people in the world who are interested in health and wellness, they are parents, they are children, they are family friends – and they are people who believe that the world is structured in a way that is pretty corrosive to health.

‘I want to build a nation-state [for these people] because if you want to be healthy IRL [In real life] you need infrastructure to do that, you need testing and therapies and nutrition and devices and all sorts of things.

‘No government in the world currently is helping its citizens not to die… so I want to build the IRL infrastructure so that a government can help its citizens not die.’

He added: ‘I’ve been to several countries and even the most basic things like getting a blood draw is really challenging.’

Some members of the crowd nodded approvingly to his comments on today’s healthcare system. 

The presenter Brad Inman — the entrepreneur who organized the summit — then asked Bryan where the state would be based, if it would be on an island or a plot of land.

Bryan suggested that the mission of finding a location and building the infrastructure for the state was still years away.

But he revealed it would begin as an online global network, with members helping each other to secure the right supplements and therapies to help them live longer and de-age their bodies.

A huge cheer and round of applause then went up from the crowd at the end of his talk, with Bryan smiling as Mr Inman said: ‘I think you are a good guy’. 

The first stage in the plan would be to recruit citizens, with people likely needing to go through a vetting process to show they are committed to de-aging.

Previous nation-states founded in the US include ‘slowjamastan’ in northern California founded by radio DJ Randy ‘R Dub’ Williams.

The so-called ‘Republic’ currently has 500 registered citizens and covers 11-acres — but it has not been recognized as independent by other states.

The nation-state would initially be run as a global network, Bryan said, with a name for the nation yet to be suggested. 

Bryan added: ‘[This would be] a network state.

‘We will band together for all sorts of purposes; in group buying of certain therapies for tests.

‘And then we will be negotiating with other nation states for special privileges and rights of access – making a selection as another nation-state doing things.

‘We are going to try to [come together] so we can achieve our objective and it is not a situation where each one of us has to go out and fight for our health.’

In the new nation, citizens would be seeking care which aims to prevent diseases from emerging in the first place. 

This would include talking to doctors to develop a personalized strict diet and exercise regimen, which studies suggest can reduce the risk of a multitude of modern ailments from heart disease to Alzheimer’s and even some cancers.

Citizens would also help each other to secure blood tests to reveal nutrient deficiencies as well as therapies to boost de-aging in cells.

This type of care would differ from the main healthcare system, which Bryan claims is too focused on treating diseases once they arise.

Citizens would gain healthcare access via their ‘pooled resources’ — like health insurance — and via specialist contracts with providers.

Citizens would also likely need to follow a version of the grueling ‘Blueprint’ plan – with 5am wake ups, early morning hour-long work outs and a diet that never exceeds 2,250 calories.

Items such as pizza and donuts would also be made no-go products for residents.

Bryan added: ‘Anything I do that increases death I am label an act of violence.

‘So the act of eating pizza, donuts, Chick-fil-A and drinking is an act of violence in itself.’

Using the plan, Bryan — who is also the most measured human on Earth — says his body fat has dropped to just six percent.

For comparison, the average in America is 28 to 40 percent body fat. Doctors say a healthy level is around eight to 19 percent for men and 21 to 32 percent for women.

Bryan says the idea is in part a response to a ‘broken’ healthcare system, including in the US — where patients often have to pay thousands to access even basic treatments with many then saddled with crippling debt.

People from other nations including the UK may also look to join, with the country’s once much-acclaimed publicly-funded National Health Service (NHS) now struggling against a backlog of 6.3million people on the waiting list – with more than half of Britons having to wait longer than 18 weeks for vital surgeries such as hip replacements.

There are currently 350,000 people on the NHS waiting list who have been waiting for treatment for more than a year.

Slowjamastan, a ‘micro-nation’ in the US, has rules in place including the outlawing of crocs, eating string cheese by biting it instead of pulling it apart and playing ‘mumble rap’ music.

The micronation is not officially recognized, although founder Mr Williams says his passport for the nation has already been stamped by 16 countries.
