Liberland: The Taxless Libertarian Utopian Country

Liberland: The Taxless Libertarian Utopian Country

A new tiny country popped up onto the world map in April of 2015. The micronation of Liberland, which sits between Croatia and Serbia, is a new sovereign state that only measures 7 km². This land is described as a taxless, unregulated, Libertarian utopia. The president of Liberland, Vít Jedlička, founded the new state April 13, 2015 on unclaimed territory. The motto of the new nation is "to live and let live," and the coat of arms displays a serene-looking bird soaring near an orange sun, all beneath a tree. According to its website, "Liberland prides itself on personal and economic freedom of its people, which is guaranteed by the Constitution, which significantly limits the power of politicians so they could not interfere too much in the freedoms of the Liberland nation."
