(TL;DR- YT Video Below)

Ancapistan is a cellular city, the first of its kind. The intention is to create an open-ended modular building framework standard, which can be replicated and expanded upon both horizontally AND vertically, long after the construction of previous sections have been fully completed. It features an internal 3-dimensional public transportation system (20 foot wide suspended pathways or "roads"), and complete utility infrastructure (on-site power generation, heating/cooling, water, and internet).

It is highly efficient in electricity consumption, heating/cooling, construction costs, and transportation costs, which the costs (and savings) of each have all been roughly calculated (+-10%) using mathematical models. Due to the cellular nature, construction can also begin with only ONE single cell, (est cost: $250k-300k, including a finished interior) instead of endlessly waiting for a grand master-plan and the massive funds/interest/uncertainty involved with such a master-plan.

The plan is also limited to the structural skeleton and meta-construction of the city, leaving the details/residential/business development/zoning and nearly all interior/artistic/aesthetic development up to the actual residents. The first cell will likely be a residential proof of concept, and will most likely be greatly expanded upon over time, as the design intended.

The design counts as "Exit" from normal society in many ways, because...
-it reduces the cost of living by an estimated $1000-3000/month/resident over traditional society
-is mostly self-sustaining and nearly off-grid (requires a small amount of diesel to run the entire city)
-close-knit community can support alternative work/life arrangements, social structures, and currencies among each other. After all, this is ancapistan!
-1-2 successful "export" industries can support the entire city due to the small amount of external cash-flow required to survive and thrive, due to massively reduced cost of living.
-A low cost of living allows for vast prosperity for both employees AND business operations within the city, all achieved by natural resource efficiency!

Structural blueprints are already completed, and the project now only requires land, financing, and some residents (who ideally would be involved in the project as well, either as laborers, entrepreneurs, or investors).

The chosen location only requires:
1) Road access
2) Freight rail access [optional but preferred]
3) A welcoming local government [due to building codes, which are enforced locally]
We can build this in a fully rural location, where land is cheap and plentiful, yet have a (future) theoretical population density 3x higher than that of Manhattan, and at 1/10th the cost of living!

Enjoy this 3D rendered video which highlights the potential lifestyle, and many future possibilities that this new city format (TOTAL FREEDOM) allows:
