A mysterious benefactor offers you the means to live anywhere you'd like in the world. The place is yours, and there are no visa issues.

Where would you choose, and why?
So far, the favorite place I have in mind is living in the Puna district on the Big Island in Hawaii. It's queerdo paradise out there and it's someplace I'd feel comfortable growing old.

I spent a month there for my honeymoon. I would eagerly make that my home. The only thing stopping me right now is just a bit of debt I'm working off. It also happens to be one of the cheapest places in the US to live. You can work in retail and afford to buy a home there.
That sounds lovely: great weather (except for storms), lotsa places to swim, gay friendly, affordable.
But I'd be sad at the postage/shipping cost to mail order electronics and technology stuff from the mainland.
And what of job opportunities and technical community?
I'd be rather lonely without a hacker space or engineering college.

Australia's no longer on my list due to homophobia.

As a Jew and a Zionist, I should never forget "making Aliyah" and emigrating to Israel. It's a technological innovator's mecca, but it's a tough life there.
