The Libertarian Republic of Certos (abbreviated LRC) is a micronation created by User:Ksd5. Currently, it has a population of zero (not including government staff). Currently, it is an Internet micronation, but there are plans to have a land-based counterpart.

Government

The LRC has a libertarian government. There are absolutely no restrictions on what people can do in the LRC, as long as they don't place restrictions on other citizens of the LRC. Currently, taxes for living in the LRC don't exist.

The government exists only to provide various services to those who are in the LRC. Some of these services include free education, housing, free electricity and water, and healthcare.

Government jobs

Every citizen of the LRC may work in the government if they wish to.

Citizenship

Anyone can register to become a citizen of the LRC, though you don't need to. Citizens get certain benefits and may join the military force, government jobs, etc.

Military

The LRC has a diverse military command. The military command is there to protect the residents of the LRC, and to shut down attempts to seize control of the LRC, such as from other countries. For example, the Republic of Minerva was seized and annexed by the Kingdom of Tonga. You must register as a citizen of the LRC to be part of the military force. Citizens belonging to the military force may be deployed to various missions. Weaponry and armor may or may not be provided. Knowledge of one or more martial arts is recommended.
