Post by: Behemot2 on April 16, 2015, 11:14:38 PM

If this is true then it will be stepping stone, slow and steady growth for BTC :)

Welcome to "Liberland"

A Czech man is claiming to be the president of a new country he founded in Europe.

Vit Jedlicka, a member of the conservative Party of Free Citizens in the Czech Republic, is the self-appointed president of Liberland, which he says sits on unclaimed terra nullius territory wedged between Serbia and Croatia. The 3 sq. mi. “country,” where taxes are optional and a military is nonexistent, does not “interfere with the territory” of the two states, according to Liberland’s website.

“The objective of the founders of the new state is to build a country where honest people can prosper without being oppressed by governments making their lives unpleasant through the burden of unnecessary restrictions and taxes,” reads a statement announcing the creation of the new country this week. The country’s motto is: “To live and let live.”

Jedlicka, speaking by phone from Prague, told TIME that the effort began as a political stunt to garner media attention. “It started a little bit like a protest,” Jedlicka, 31, said. “But now it’s really turning out to be a real project with real support.”

The project has already received roughly 20,000 applications for citizenship, according to Jedlicka, who estimated that the country will receive as many as 100,000 applications by the end of next week...

This is great, if it is allowed to survive.

Unless you are talking about a giant size economy, bitcoin role will be more towards like an experiment in a totally new environment. Nevertheless it still means something if it gets adopted as a legal tender in the state.

The website says it's in some kind of no mans land. But on maps its in Serbia. I think if you killed someone here you would find the Serb policija informing you that you are actually in Serbia.

No... Actually both Serbia and Croatia DON'T want that land :D .

Serbia wants a border on the middle of the river , and Croatia doesn't want that because of some other parts . So according to Serbia, Liberland is in Croatia, and according to Croatia Liberland is Serbia.

So its nobody's land and he claimed it which he has every right to do :D .

Only few houses? Why the are proclaimed themselves 'a new republic'? This is really no sense (If I can say my personal opinion). If there is not services like: hospitals, banks, schools etc... they cannot proclaim a new republic (or am I wrong?).

U are wrong . U can proclaim new republic on any peace of land or whatever that is not in any other country :D .

Check sealand its a country on a old oil platform .

And liberland is only few days old so ofc infrastructure doesn't exist.

But tbh im more and more feeling like this is scam. Now they are saying everybody who donates 200$ will get theirs flag shipped anywhere in the world. It could be that they are just trying to have fun and get some quick buck and then abandon project.

It's going to become a resort for rich families to store their wealth with low taxes as some pointed, thats what I personally see this project turning into. The country is in between of pretty conflicting areas to both. I wouldn't feel safe there. It would have been cooler if they did it on some island.

Serbia and Croatia wont touch it without permission from European union and NATO .

And also its conflicted aria coz neither Serbia or Croatia wants that piece of land . Serbia says its Croatian and Croatia says its Serbian :D

Serbia can't touch.. but Croatia can. That is because, as per the internationally recognized boundaries, Liberland is a part of Croatia. It is the Croatians, who are refusing to take ownership. But remember that they can change their stance at anytime, and it does not require prior permissions from the European Union.

Not even the rich that want to store their wealth without any regulations and under secretive banking policies will want to use Libertard to store their monies, when they have Caiman Islands, Switzerland etc. It just sounds too corny to begin with.

I think this is a great concept, but I'm not really sure if it will work... Since they have no military it's easy to attack them and reclaim the land.

And by the time they develop it and make it inhabitable, Croatia will just annex it, just like they annexed the Republic of Serbian Krajina in 1995.

Just read an article about Liberland in the news. The founder of Liberland has recently stated that there are currently no inhabitants. There is only one old unlivable building on the countries area that is more than 100 years old. And there are more than 300k of applications for a citizenships from where 2000-3000 people are choosen based on their education. Sorry, but this project seems really crazy  ;D

And nobody is concerned about the minefields there?

There are still 10-15k active mines between Croatia and Serbia , and a lot of them are in Osijek.

Both Serbia and Croatia claim this place as their own. The idea that nobody claims it part of its territory is totally unfounded.



But this man is claiming the territory though lol

1 man vs 2 countries

It is possible, dedication creates freedom  ;)

Because the ruler of this 'Liberland' place is natural born Czech man, thus he made this language one of official languages of his country. Simple.

Who cares about them anyway, they are a bunch of thieves, of course they wont recognize it. Is there honor amongs thieves?

The important thing is that we should support it, we are honest people here who want economic freedom. The EU doesnt want it (taxes ,regulations, permits).

And I think, supported by latest news, it is much more likely to succeed than many ppl think. It seems it actually has support both from Serbia and Croatia and possibly many more states. The fact is all the regimes are screwed and even the ruling class itself needs some place to store the money they all stole from tax payers. And having tax heaven as a neighbour - I also understand while ordinary Serbia and Croatia citizens support it too, taking into account how fucked their economies are 25 years after the fall of Soviet block. EUSR is only making thing worse for ordinary folks.

He got arrested fro trespassing on the land so it looks like this idea was a failure before it even got started. These things always run into trouble. You'd be better off buying your own island or creating one somewhere but that costs a lot of money and still can run into legal trouble.

Judging by the pictures, its funny how the design reminds me of Jaque's Fresco designs on a Resource Based Economy city, but the ideology of Liberland is the total opposite to an RBU.

That's called a pipe dream or a libertarian utopia fantasy  :D. The thing is with these things they always start off with good intentions and ideas but the people who run them will get power hungry or soon find out how difficult it is to run a anarchist utopia, especially when shit kicks off or some bad apples infiltrate the group.

this is potentially groundbreaking news, but what is actually on that land?  Are there roads going through/around it?  Is the "president" living there?  Sure it's a great idea, but he is going to basically need everyone to volunteer their time and efforts to form this legislative process he has shown on the site.  Plus the idea of no military is great (obviously that isn't even an option though).  What happens when an actual military/militia/other group threatens harm to the "citizens"?  At the very least a  national defense group sounds necessary.

Yea right, sorry about the pics, for some reason it was taken down i reuploaded it. (Probably some socialists got offended)

The european union is an irreversible abomination, it cannot be reversed directly, its a cleptocratic dictatorship, that steals people from all around europe and gives it to the oligarchs, while rabid and greedy socialists beg for even higher tax increases and more welfare.

Fantastic news! I hope to see every time a new (micro)nation starts to accept bitcoin as national currency.

This is just great. Im gonna visit (whats there) next week. If Croatian police allows . Since they didn't allow any body to go there last few days.
And from Serbian side u can only go there with a boat.


Remember to visit also their banks http://techforum.it/styles/default/xenforo/smilies/asd.gif, a bitcoin bank! Yuppi....

There is nothing like that atm. In that "country" there are only like few houses and thats all :D .

Only few houses? Why the are proclaimed themselves 'a new republic'? This is really no sense (If I can say my personal opinion). If there is not services like: hospitals, banks, schools etc... they cannot proclaim a new republic (or am I wrong?).

U are wrong . U can proclaim new republic on any peace of land or whatever that is not in any other country :D .

Check sealand its a country on a old oil platform .

And liberland is only few days old so ofc infrastructure doesn't exist.

But tbh im more and more feeling like this is scam. Now they are saying everybody who donates 200$ will get theirs flag shipped anywhere in the world. It could be that they are just trying to have fun and get some quick buck and then abandon project.
I don't think Sealand is actually recognized as a country, since a country needs to have actual land mass to be considered a country.

I don't think about the 'land mass' being a requirement but they do have mass, but they are not recognized as a country. They claim to be recognized by the United Kingdom and what not but they actually aren't, and what's the point of being a king if you are only supposed to rule 50 people, and 1/5th of them already being your family.

There is this new Free republic of Liberland which was just founded on internationally free land which no state has claimed. There is a word it will accept BTC as the currency. http://liberland.org/en/about/ http://liberland.org/en/news/

Good for the only resident of this country. Have no need to create the Central Bank, to invent the new currency and to produce it. There is engaged with the creation of the other institutions, the finding of the members of governments, of Prime Minister and all the other chairpersons of all the other institutions.
