Metapolis Freeland (The virtual state of Freeland) is the same state as any other existing one, whether recognized or not. The global difference is that it is organized on a newly-discovered territory: in the infosphere. There is no logical reason to deny that this territory exists. There is no reason to deny that social and economic relations between people can technically be built in it according to different rules than ever before.
REALITY OR BUSINESS?
Freeland is a game, a reality, and a business altogether. The unpredictable result and outcome of this experiment corresponds to the game aspect. For many centuries humanity could only dream about such an experiment, but it is us who are lucky enough to implement it. Modern technologies — able-to-get Internet, blockchain, crypto-currency — support the launch of an extra-territorial state with all the elements of a full-scale and efficient society.
Freeland is a reality. Since it has become obvious that the modus operandi of state jurisdiction and management tend to become less and less efficient, the external signs of national identity (territory, language, currency, emblem, anthem, legal system and other out-of-date indicators) have lost their relevance and the society is ready for new means of social interaction, such means need to be introduced. It is impossible to write them from scratch since no one can guess the vector of the social evolution – and no one ever had. The only way to form new social standards is carry out an experiment where the society shall play the role of the researcher and the underdog at the same time.
Freeland is a potential business for every MFC-owner. We are totally aware that the promotion of Freeland idea shall attract loads of attention from the world community. We do not offer any new philosophy, we just claim that it is the right moment to launch an Ideal Democracy and we are ready to create tools for its implementation. Isn’t just society something that each one of us needs? A big number of participants will in its turn lead to MFC value escalation.
MANIFESTO OF FREELAND
The modus operandi of most jurisdictions today is in a state of harsh crisis or even stagnation. Change is unlikely since all those systems are too rigid. However, the world around us is changing rapidly. Our idea is as simple: to create our own virtual jurisdiction with a totally new society and up-to-date means of management and control. In the long run, we could even get rid of this stagnant system throughout the whole planet and create a new one called Freeland.
The aforementioned idea has been occupying the minds of the best sophists for centuries but was technically chimerical. Any jurisdiction is run by the most ancient and inefficient tool ever – people. The only operating link between them is absolute subordination which entails corruption and crisis. Nowadays, the total failure of such a system has proven itself: most innovative technological solutions in all branches of activity are being generated outside of state control (EVs, drones, alternate network protocols, blockchain technology, crypto-currency, car-sharing, crowdfunding, social networks, just to mention a few).
Change is only possible if a new form of e-agreement is introduced for everyone, the so-called Public Agreement. The idea of such a treaty has been floating around for a while, however, it was technically impossible to implement it before. We are creating a virtual jurisdiction outside the bounds of existing jurisdictions but with the prospect of possible interaction with them. Therefore, in due course we will have to change the status of the virtual jurisdiction so it becomes a territorial one in the framework of the current international law.

FAQ about Freeland Passport
What is it? It is a document that verifies the identity of its owner, just like any other passport or ID does. If Freeland is a state in the virtul (informational) space, then why do its citizens need a material means of identification? Freeland passports identify their holders living in the material space except for John Lennon’s passport which was executed for demonstration purposes only. Freeland passport is meant to combine the data about the owner both in the informational space and our everyday life, as much as it is possible. Why do I need this passport if I have [...]

Headnotes of cultural policy up for discussion
It’s all more or less clear but we need to explain what “cultural policy” actually means in a virtual and free-wheeling game. Of course, it is a misprint: should have been “state”, not “game”, but let’s leave it as it is. If the idea of a state comes out of the idea of a game, that would be great, otherwise it can be a laugh-in. It is also important to outline that we are talking about political agenda, not about culture administration, order placement, allotment of government grants. It is about consideration for all participants of the cultural process in [...]
