While old countries and old alliances break down are new countries being formed? The pacifist nation Asgardia in space (the home of the gods?) or bitNation in cyberspace? Liberland in Europe or Sealand in the North Sea? Will we eventually see a patchwork of small countries or will the world be taken over by one or two large nations?
Can you see yourself as a citizen of a nation in space or cyberspace? Would you be willing to pay taxes to such a nation? Could a small nation where most citizens are non-residents enforce taxes? Would such tiny countries be allowed to continue? Will they continue to be pacifist or will they be drawn into wars?
Perhaps you disapprove of small nations? Perhaps you think it makes no sense to talk of belonging to a country you have never set foot in? Or perhaps you yourself feel you are a citizen of a country you have never visited?
However you feel, come and talk about the future of countries in GeekSpeak. IM Kathen Ohtobide if you need a teleport.
