On an swampy land along the Danube, somewhere between Croatia or Serbia, Czech libertarian Vít Jedlička is trying to start a new country. His project of creating a fiscal paradise in The Free Republic of Liberland might attract some, yet local authorities are reluctant about letting anyone reach the territory claimed by Jedlička in 2015.

Jedlička has some surprising ideas involving, among others, the eradication of all laws regarding taxes, education, marriage and healthcare.
