The NOMADS Republic is the largest nation on earth. It boasts several billions of citizens already, and depending on how one counts, its population may grow from 20 billion to about a trillion citizens at the end of this decade. The NOMADS Republic has no borders and its growth cannot be stopped. Anyone or anything who/ that has an ID, be it a passport or a telephone number, an IP address or a product number, when connected, may become a citizen of the NOMADS Republic such as the people, the infrastructure and embedded systems (sensors and actuators including electromechanical systems such as robots). The goal of NOMADS (networks of mobile adaptive dependable systems) infrastructure is to provide low cost, dependable and adaptive connectivity to support mobility, billing and other basic functionality and services desired by clients and service providers including services composability. The NOMADS infrastructure is ubiquitous but rarely pervasive, it is autonomic and proactive and supports humans without technological aggression, trying to hide or embed technical aspects. The implementation of composable service-oriented paradigm across all types of systems is one of the key challenges in order to achieve the software reuse and ease of use by creating an ambient computing environment. The paper includes a concept of the NOMADS Republic, its societal model and a description of the service oriented architecture of NOMADS infrastructure for cross section of computing environments.
