I think its got a parliament and a president for life or some such. They
seem to be rather benign and low key. I haven't heard about anything
negative politically happening there in decades... The cool thing is
that once you spend a minimum time there, like 6 months, you're
resident, and can spend the majority of your time thereafter elsewhere.
This is about as close as you can get to legally recognised individual
sovreignty without getting your house burned down by the FBI.
