In our world of reality, not all places or countries offer people to stay for free and not pay a single penny. But, the Liberland does. Taxes and fines and high inflation rates have been dreading us and most of us have been suffering through it, and are wishing to escape into a new world.
So, here it is.
What is the Liberland?
Founded on the 13th of April in the year 2015, The Free Republic of Liberland has its own new flag, national anthem, and a provisional government. Located between Croatia and Serbia on the Danube River in the European continent, it is more like a no man’s land. The basic foundation of this land is that citizens are completely free from any kind of limits to their liberties. Each and every individual here is totally free with regards to his or her religion or philosophical ideas and opinions.
An old phrase comes to our mind: Half of the life is showing up. Liberaland has similar aims. It wishes to be the freest nation in the world, a place where government handouts would be non-existent. Libertarian philosophy believes that freedom comes with responsibility and citizens working here will have to work towards earning it.
The existence of this free country came into existence because of a border dispute between Croatia and Serbia. It’s around 7 square kilometers, which makes it the third smallest nation in the world, after Vatican City and Monaco.
The land is in effective control of Croatia, however, Croatia doesn’t claim to be a part of the country. However, Liberlanders cannot enter the country without Croatian permission. The Croatian border controls still decide who enters the borders of the Liberland.
President and founder of the Liberland, the 31-year old Czech politician, Vit Jedlicka who is also a regional party leader of one of Croatia’s political parties and has Libertarian views along with the self-proclaimed citizens of the Liberland still live in the Czech Republic.
