There are a number of places in the world where the rich and poor world meet at some sharp borders. The US has a long one at it's south side; Norway and Finland have one to the east1, the Malacca straits is another one (Malaysia has become quite a rich country lateley).

The EU is about to gain one of these borders, as Poland keeps developing at 12% yearly growth. There is another one across the Gibraltar straits.

Even in such places I haven't seen many examples of outsourcing to the poorer place at rich world terms. The shops right across the border tend to be quite low-send sweat shops and production lines, with quite a bit of vice trades thrown in.

When I think of my "Cunning Plan" to actually build a country in a shallow ocean I think of making a well-regulated free port. There wouldn't be room for many people there. And it needs be be in a warm place.
