  1. Libertarianism, like any philosophy, is a vague phenomenon and there are many opinions. New Zealand, Australia, and Switzerland are relatively confident in being libertarian (with minimal state participation in the economy and the ratio of government spending to GDP), although this is more about minarchism and economic freedom.

    Sane academics like Hayek and Friedman supported a negative tax as a substitute for the welfare system and recognized the role of the state as a defender of property and life rights.

  2. If we talk about recognized states, then of course not, since the state in this case should not have:

    • Mandatory taxes

    • Customs duties

    • Restrictions on migration and immigration (borders, in fact)

    • Universal military service

    • Prohibition of certain types of drugs

    • Media Restrictions

    • And a lot more points…

    The states that are as close to Libertarianism as possible, in my opinion, are the Netherlands, Norway and Sweden. These countries have as much free information space as possible, allow light drugs to be freely used, calmly accept migrants and help them adapt, and much more. But “as close as possible” does not mean that they are still a couple of steps away from libertarianism. This means exactly that they have more freedom than others. But they still have a long way to go before reaching an ideologically perfect postulate, if they continue to move in this direction at all.

    And if we talk about unrecognized formations, then you can read this news: bitnovosti.com

    Funny idea of a funny Czech to take and squeeze out part of Serbia, which, of course, ended in complete failure. You can also read more on the Wiki: wikipedia.org
