There are corners His Heaviness doesn't fill?

prima question that form of social arrangement is unstable, unethical und inefficient, it is the trite old pseudo social darwinism. Even in its day on Old Earth, there was a rebuttal of the implications for social order written by Herr Kropotkin.

secunda It is a natural consequence that the biggest faction in the defense of its interest has a bigger scope and needs, so it would end picking the tab or gobbling the competing factions. A divided land, it is either annexed by an unified and aggressive neighbor or unified from inside by the biggest or more militant faction.

tertia UTC time plus goes into the East direction, minus into the West. As for Old Earth early XXI st century most of the European Union was on UTC+1 for easy coordination between commercial interests. Although having the same hour from Madrid to Warsaw made for some interesting issues on their own.

Firstly, instability is something that one must accept if they are to throw off the shackles of government, we would say that government is an unethical violation of our rights, and efficiency is not our priority.
Secondly, certain groups in our region find the outcome you described to be unprofitable, so things that begin to appear governmental have a tendency to stop very suddenly.

Thirdly, ah.

A number of things. According to Cianlandia's top theoretical physicists, known within the nation's academia as "Ugh, those people", Tubbius' immense mass being released in the gnawing hunger of the void would have a few possible effects. 1:The sudden introduction of a great quantity of mass would draw in nearby stellar debris, forming a small asteroid. The gravitational pull would increase exponentially, eventually culminating in the creation of a small planetoid. 2: The same things that happened in scenario 1 would occur, however due to Tubbius' strange christmas-time magics, a sudden influx of dark matter would be drawn to Tubbius. This would have unknown effects. 3: Everything that happened in scenarios 1 and 2 would occur in rapid succession. However, particles of dark matter would also be drawn to Tubbius at varying speeds. If the majority of the particles are cold or weak dark matter, a black hole will form. If they are strong, or hot, particles, which interact with each other frequently, a Big bang might occur.
Also, if not wearing the proper space-suit equipment, His Immensity's head would implode from the space's pressure.

I assumed his mass would cause an atmosphere to form around him?

Hello Lazarus.

Edit: Should be starting to work on my fact books today. It will take me a longgg time to complete them all though. Anyways, have a good day everyone!

The one corner the divine Roundness doesn't fill is the one corner that technically isn't from here at all.

*A female figure embedded in a purple combat suit appear on screen striding to the camera. - "Ah, good night", The Chancellor is still unable to attend, it has finished the CompSci assignments of Dr Bosen and mine of Strategy and it is currently with the Reyes triplets for protocol and er ...

First of all it is an understement to say the least that we are highly surprise to see a rising merchant nation blatant disregard efficiency, it seems a non sequitur, besides the talk about the oppressive nature of a government it is a non-sense. A region would always have a government, either a public one, the greatest private corporate interest, the nastiest warlord or the highest priest of a cult.
That cannot be changed. What can and must change is the quality of the governance. Besides the disregard for government function, taking even the extreme of Minarchist position, how will you deal with an invader sans an army? The ultimate government position that must be filled.
Even a coalition of mercenary companies are an army and the defense a function of a government, being this declared or implied.

Good Day Lazarus, I look forward to finding out what this region is all about!

We think you may have misunderstood our nation. The FMB is a haven for corporations who wish to avoid government. As such those who begin to take control and become government like often come down with unfortunate cases of death. Government be it democracy, autocracy, technocracy, or even corporatocracy comes with inherent rules and seeks to control, so it is rumored that certain parties who wish to avoid rules often make use of our perfectly legitimate mercenary agencies to help keep FMB a lawless haven for those who wish to remain ungoverned.
Due to infighting and gang wars we do have various mercenary outfits, but it is unlikely that we could successfully hold off an invasion. A defensive force by the Allied Markets is likely to consist of many small mercenary outfits hired by corporations within our borders and with little communication between them, they will be ineffective. We at the AMIRC have plans to profit off of this eventuality immensely and expect those profits to allow us to ride out the aftermath while we reestablish ourselves. We do not plan to make these plans public due to concerns of our shareholders about winding up dead.
Nevertheless, it is likely that we will need to relocate if we are invaded, so any resistance we do put up will just be stalling for our escape. I suppose that is the problem with having no standing army at a national level, but hopefully nothing large attacks us.
TL;DR
People who are too ambitious get assassinated by those who profit off of the status quo and incase of invasion we run away.

Street? Knitters?

we appear to have been transported to a new land. lab 234 of blue space science appears to have gone missing. likely the cause. we must search for our homeland once again

Best of luck my dudes

Yep they knit things and put them up on walls to make people happy it's like graffiti but happy

Sorry for the haste but I am in a bit of a hurry. No, I am not mistaking the nature of your nation, we do have known in our long history other examples of AnCap "zones" and their desire to go away from government and ending becoming a new government in everything except the name.
Despite the appeal to novelty despising several government systems, the state of nearly constant low level warfare to avoid one faction to get to far away, and the absolute private nature of the political and economic sphere it has long been known as Feudalism.

Besides small band of mercenaries although as pointed can stall an invasion a determined enemy could wipe out and block the escape route. Luckily there are no militarist nations at present in Lazarus poised to a expansion program right now. Even some of the more weaponized are embroiled in a Civil War in the frozen wastes of the north.

*the holographic display switched off. -Standing up carefully from the flffufy cushion on the white armchair from the greenhouse terrace while chewing some menthol sweets - Elvira what is the next things to do in the timetable for today? The AI housed in the Chancellery appeared as a woman in a dress business. - Captain Lorentz is waiting you in the gym for your morning training (and the triplets are there to say goodbye).

You really enjoyed the visit of the triplets, don't you? A tired smile showed in the face of the Chancellor - Since you have it recorded in HD the question is rhetorical. Do you want to join us next time? They are leaving for Aigania Prime for a few days.You could download in one of the spare gynoid bodies? .

With a nonplussed facial expression the AI answered - Organics ... Maybe next time. Talking about time Chancellor after gym your schedule for today is ... The Chancellor sighted "it was going to be a really long day" mused as he entered the training area.

The Tubby One is exhausted. He did not sleep well.

Tubbius just wants to stay in bed today. Room service will be very busy.
