During times of economic hardship, it's not usual for individuals to unload some of their assets, especially multi-million dollar properties in New York City. And that's exactly what the cash-strapped country of Portugal did this week!

The nation recently sold its four bedroom apartment at the Dakota for $11.5 million, according to the New York Post. Portugal purchased the eight-room apartment, featuring 19th-century details, three wood-burning fireplaces and 12-foot ceilings, 42 years ago for just $200,000.

The country is also selling off stakes in its national airline, oil, utility and electricity companies by the end of July to offset some of its debt.
