  • A couple of years ago now, myself and a friend of mine from the internet had some online discussions and conducted some fairly detailed research regarding Sovereign Nations, Micronations and about what it is to be a good Citizen in our world today.

    Somewhat inspired by the UK documentary of 2005 “How to Start Your Own Country” … (available to watch on youtube)

    We set out to try and overcome some of the issues presented to existing Micronations with regards to them not being considered to be truly “Sovereign”.

    We tried to envisage an open source, decentralized, internet-based Macronation, with open governance by the people through social media and with local representation, perhaps something very similar to what Bitnation is offering to its future Citizens.

    According to the Montevideo Convention

    “The state as a person of international law should possess the following qualifications: (a) a permanent population; (b) a defined territory; (c) government; and (d) capacity to enter into relations with the other states.”

    The most difficult aspect is in finding an independent or unclaimed territory to become a fully fledged ‘Sovereign Nation’.

    “land belonging to no one, which is used in international law to describe territory which has never been subject to the sovereignty of any state, or over which any prior sovereign has expressly or implicitly relinquished sovereignty. Sovereignty over territory which is terra nullius may be acquired through occupation, though in some cases doing so would violate an international law or treaty.”

    Human Rights –

    Universal Declaration of Human Rights –

    Right to Privacy –

    Considering “The state as a person of international law…” with an Individual Right to Privacy provides a perfect paradox within the Montevideo Convention when combined with encryption and/or blockchain technologies…

    Polity –

    “A polity is a state … It is generally understood to mean a geographic area with a corresponding government … body politic was also understood to mean “the physical person of the sovereign:”

    Entity –

    “In law, a legal entity is an entity that is capable of bearing legal rights and obligations, such as a natural person or an artificial person (e.g. business entity or a corporate entity).”

    Natural and Legal Rights:

    “Natural rights are those not contingent upon the laws, customs, or beliefs of any particular culture or government, and therefore universal and inalienable (i.e., cannot be sold, transferred, or removed).”
