The virtual state of Freeland - is the same state as any other existing one, whether recognized or not. The global difference is that it is organized on a newly-discovered territory: in the infosphere. There is no logical reason to deny that this territory exists. There is no reason to deny that social and economic relations between people can technically be built in it according to different rules than ever before.
The basis of the existence of Freeland
Our main idea is to create our own virtual jurisdiction with brand-new society and modern management tools, an extra-territorial state model called Freeland.
Change of the existing state systems is only possible if a new form of an e-agreement is introduced for everyone, the so-called Public Agreement which was technically impossible to implement before. Today we offer you a chance to join the launch of a virtual jurisdiction outside the bounds of existing jurisdictions but with the prospect of interaction with them on the basis of certain agreements.
In a contemporary world, a choice of a homeland is a conscious choice of a human being, not an adoption of an old-school feudal model, where a state is a major taxman and provides services based thereon, mostly of a very poor quality. Basically, government in the future will only play a role of a service company whose work should satisfy its citizens and, therefore, consumers. The whole notion of homeland will be pure loyalty to the brand.
Principles of Freeland state system
The following principles shall be adopted by the system:
- 1.Within the scope of traditional classification, Freeland is a democratic state, a parliamentary republic.
- 2.The electoral right is built on the blockchain technology and represents a direct agreement between the voter and the official. Elections are not a periodic act but a permanent process.
- 3.The financial system of Freeland is based on the circulation of the MFCoin crypto-currency (hereinafter referred to as MFC), which is a means of payment for the state of Freeland. The virtual state of Freeland allows and maintains circulation on its territory of any currency and means of payment, if their treatment does not harm the citizens of Freeland.
- 4.Freeland is the first state to recognize an individual's exclusive right on his intellect as private property not subject to any encumbrances.
Decision-making algorithm in a virtual state
All the decisions in Freeland are being taken by its citizens by means of qualified majority (not less than 2/3 of votes). At the same time, in any voting the question is put binary and has no more than two answers to avoid manipulation. Each vote counts as one regardless of the voter’s social status. If none of the two solutions gained 2/3 of votes, both options shall be considered potentially rational and shall be polished till the agreed decision is taken in favor of one of them.
Public Agreement (social contract) is a socio-economic theory of the advent of the civil society, state and law as a result of certain agreement between individuals. This theory undertakes that individuals shall in part deny their sovereign rights for the benefit of the state so that they can account for their interests via the state. Initially, any member of such state must abide by the rules and incur liability for their violation. However, currently existing states aiming at the implementation of Public Agreement are based on human factor and prejudicial treatment leading to corruption and manipulation.
Public Agreement of Freeland provides for public coverage of the conflicts or controversial issues that the state faces. The priority in solving these issues shall be given to the citizen of the state, not a separate official. If someone tries to violate civil rights of the other citizens by means of committing a crime or reneging on commitments, the rest of the society shall protect themselves from the actions of such individual.
Decentralization is the process of redistributing or dispersing functions, powers, people or things away from a central location or authority. Decentralized decision-making in Freeland shall feature a voting system inside the virtual state based on Freeland blockchain.
Color Teal: myth or prospect?
The concept of the so-called Teal organizations (or companies) has appeared only recently. In such entities, the team works without a direct hierarchy and solves all the assignments in squads by means of self-management. There is a central body which accepts ready-made assignments and gives out tasks but no intermediate management in the system. Usually, the assignments are being distributed from the outside environment (third-party client), however, in Freeland the process works vice versa: the tasks are being distributed from within by the society itself. Before making any decision, the team member must consult the others about its reasonability.
The same scheme is potentially possible within a community of individuals when certain challenges set by the jurisdiction on behalf of a number of citizens shall be solved by a unified civil society of Freeland (however, this concept needs to be checked experimentally)
Utopia, reality or business?
Freeland is a game, a reality, and a business altogether. The unpredictable result and outcome of this experiment corresponds to the game aspect. For many centuries humanity could only dream about such an experiment, but it is us who are lucky enough to implement it. Modern technologies – able-to-get Internet, blockchain, crypto-currency – support the launch of an extra-territorial state with all the elements of a full-scale and efficient society. Freeland is a reality. Since it has become obvious that the modus operandi of state jurisdiction and management tend to become less and less efficient, the external signs of national identity (territory, language, currency, emblem, anthem, legal system and other out-of-date indicators) have lost their relevance and the society is ready for new means of social interaction, such means need to be introduced. It is impossible to write them from scratch since no one can guess the vector of the social evolution – and no one ever had. The only way to form new social standards is carry out an experiment where the society shall play the role of the researcher and the underdog at the same time. Freeland is a potential business for every MFC-owner. We are totally aware that the promotion of Freeland idea shall attract loads of attention from the world community. We do not offer any new philosophy, we just claim that it is the right moment to launch an Ideal Democracy and we are ready to create tools for its implementation. Isn’t just society something that each one of us needs? A big number of participants will in its turn lead to MFC value escalation.
There are no international signs that Freeland is illegal or violates any rules of international law:
- Freeland does not claim territorial integrity of any of the states
- Freeland does not print surrogate money
- Freeland is not a joint-stock company obliged to publicly corporatize
- Freeland does not violate international human rights
- Freeland does not assume any obligations, except the formation of public interaction on the principles of the blockade of Freeland
Such an association is a form that in many respects exists outside the norms of modern law, and therefore does not violate it.
Role of Mr. Freeman
Animation character Mr. Freeman is an absolutely non-commercial product, in some way a digital messiah, bearing the main meaning - a person is free in itself, freedom does not need to be acquired, it must be simply realized. It was Freeman's ideas in 2010 that led to the realization of the need to create an extraterritorial (virtual) state for the formation of Ideal Democracy, a self-regulating society capable of forming effective self-government tools. Thanks to Freeman, the understanding of the word "freedom" was reported to millions of people in Eastern and Western Europe. Today Freeman comes out with his public stance into the world. It will be one of the most important symbols and horns of Freeland.
