So with his billions of dollars all he can afford to buy for his new nation is a Cubesat and a measly half TB hard drive?

There's an article floating around where this whole shitshow is already doomed to fail. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-4835972/Asgardia-space-nation-founders-face-earthly-problems.html

Not sure what you're thoughts on the Dailymail are but the issues they talk about in the article will probably spell doom for this project.

Also in that thread iirc it was discussed how this looks like one of those games where a space station is overtaken by demons or a cult worshipping aliens or something. The portal to hell is at the very top.
