|Liberland: Europe's tiny new country where taxes are optional |
A politician from the Czech Republic is claiming to be the President of a brand new “independent sovereign state” in the Balkans.
Vit Jedlicka, a member of the Conservative Party of Free Citizens, is the self-appointed president of “Liberland,” a 7sq km “country” (only the Vatican and Monaco are smaller) where taxes are optional and there is no military.
It is situated on the banks of the Danube between Serbia and Croatia in an unclaimed no-man's land, or terra nullious territory, meaning that neither country has ever held full sovereignty over the area.
Thus Jedlicka claims that his new country has been created entirely within the boundaries of international law.
Czech TN news website says: "It's not entirely clear to what extent the activists are being serious, but they have turned up at the location of their 'state,' where they have raised the flag."
