Have you heard about the newest country in Europe? It is a utopian tax-free micronation that is making big promises to people who want to do business without worrying about taxes and complex regulations. It is officially called The Free Republic of Liberland, commonly called just Liberland. This small piece of land between Serbia and Croatia has been trying to get international recognition by the other nations while its leaders control a territory that no other country seems to claim to itself.
Everything started on April 13th, 2015, when Vít Jedlička, a politician, publicist, and activist from The Czech Republic, founded Liberland to practice his libertarian ideology in a fairly new playground. He is the first president of this young micronation until this day. The legal basis for the formation of Liberland lies in the unresolved border disputes between the states that made up Yugoslavia, which left as a result only vast tracts of land that are technically not owned by anyone.
