Looking for recommendations of existing companies offering VPS services in Iceland.   Virtualization platform unimportant.   Only requirement is that the ownership of the company making the offer cannot be United States or United Kingdom citizen or incorporated in either country.

Anyone have any recommendations?

You do realize they call the beast, the "five eyes" right?  You only mentioned two of them.

Where is the beast having five eyes quoted from?  Bible?

Check this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UKUSA_Agreement

"The alliance of intelligence operations is also known as Five Eyes (FVEY). It was first signed in March 1946 by the United Kingdom and the United States and later extended to encompass the three Commonwealth realms of Canada, Australia and New Zealand."

Those five eyes are:

1. United States

2. United Kingdom

3. Canada

4. Australia

5. New Zealand

Sounds like Great Brittania and their collection of still controlled experiments and prison properties.

Australia is graphically more free these days than the United States.  Heck, the other three are all freer.  United Kingdom, ahh no, it's a police control freak state.

"The beast" is slang for the UKUSA intelligence network, as you just mentioned.  It's been slang for the UKUSA intelligence network since the days of the cold war...

Never heard of this before @kaniini  thanks.

What a name to choose.   Nah, our governments aren't littered with Satanists.  No way.

UK are slaves of the US, they get all of our intelligence info but we don't get any of theirs. They fine our British companies but let Americans off with small fines (look to the Gulf of Mexico spill incident), and this is the 'special relationship' we have wth the US.

Meh, anyway politics aside I'm pretty sure this is just the company you are looking for - https://www.1984hosting.com/ - apart from the largeish price.

Yep, been looking at 1984hosting.  Might try their shared hosting just to see how they are before committing to the expense there of VPS.

"The beast" isn't a government term for describing it.  It's a conspiracy theorist term.

From another point, how can you guarantee that the other side of the endpoint isn't owned?

Your Cable/DSL company could be doing the intercept and you'll probably never know.  Do you trust Comcast or Windstream to do right by you any more than a US-based hosting company?

Beast is mentioned in Bible and likely other books of historic wisdom.

Daniel 7 in the Bible speaks of 4 beasts.  Unsure of which Bible this is taken from:

And four great beasts were coming up from the sea, different from one another. 4 The first was like a lion and had the wings of an eagle. I kept looking until its wings were plucked, and it was lifted up from the ground and made to stand on two feet like a man; a human [e]mind also was given to it. 5 And behold, another beast, a second one, resembling a bear. And it was raised up on one side, and three ribs were in its mouth between its teeth; and thus they said to it, ‘Arise, devour much meat!’ 6 After this I kept looking, and behold, another one, like a leopard, which had on its [f]back four wings of a bird; the beast also had four heads, and dominion was given to it. 7 After this I kept looking in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrifying and extremely strong; and it had large iron teeth. It devoured and crushed and trampled down the remainder with its feet; and it was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns. 8 While I was contemplating the horns, behold, another horn, a little one, came up among them, and three of the first horns were pulled out by the roots before it; and behold, [g]this horn possessed eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth uttering great boasts
Revelation 13 merges these beasts into one (perhaps the unified New World Order / NATO / etc.???):

The dragon[a] stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on its horns, and on each head a blasphemous name. 2 The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion. The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority. 3 One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast. 4 People worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?”

5 The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months. 6 It opened its mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. 7 It was given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. 8 All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world.

 


Also in Revelations:


 


 


And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.



- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
 



 


All those wings and eyes bring to mind:


 


1. Drones


2. Satellites


3. Warplanes


 


Interpretations are just guesses.

Today, you have to assume you direct upstream is spying.   Unless you have a small business for internet.  If it's a former Bell Co. or AT&T divided asset or any other company most folks know, you are indeed screwed.

The solution is and will remain to:

1. Not pass DNS plaintext.

2. SSH tunnel all traffic out to a remote point

3. VPN or tunnelize traffic elsewhere or into a semi random and secure network

All my upstreams are notorious government collaborators and traitors.   That's life under monopoly/duopoly market control.
