Decentralize Borderless Voluntary Nations

Pineapple EMPIRE has been set up to enable its citizens to cooperate on a common goal in their life. Our citizens are vastly diverse but share one common goal. This framework allows our citizens to rally around it and accelerate progress together through action rather than voice alone. 

 

Pineapple EMPIRE’s vision is a global free market for governance services. A post-Nation State world of Voluntary Nations, City States, and Autonomous Communities which compete for Citizens by providing a range of opt-in governance services. In our world, sovereignty shifts decisively from the State to the Citizen, and humanity reclaims freedom of choice when accessing governance services.

A typical Voluntary Nation created in Pineapple EMPIRE, for example, citizens inspire one another across all social and cultural backgrounds and geographies with the only singularity being the overall goals of the Nation that each Citizen chooses to follow. These new forms of governance can have any legal framework, economic model, or decision-making mechanism promoted by their personal sovereignty at all times and voluntarily join and leave the Nations. Thus, anyone can opt-in or opt-out of a Voluntary Nation, and the Nations are required to compete with one another for Citizen patronage. 


However. These organizational models can only outcompete modern state sovereignty if they can provide credible alternatives to the Nation State’s raison d’etre: the provision of security and justice. Voluntary nations must provide better, more secure, faster, and more valuable peer-to-peer alternatives for these services.

 

“Who built Thebes of the 7 gates ?
In the books you will read the names of kings.
Did the kings haul up the lumps of rock ?

And Babylon, many times demolished,
Who raised it up so many times ?

In what houses of gold glittering Lima did its builders live ?
Where, the evening that the Great Wall of China was finished, did the masons go?

Great Rome is full of triumphal arches.
Who erected them ?

Over whom did the Caesars triumph ?
Had Byzantium, much praised in song, only palaces for its inhabitants ?

Even in fabled Atlantis, the night that the ocean engulfed it,
The drowning still cried out for their slaves.

The young Alexander conquered India.
Was he alone ?

Caesar defeated the Gauls.
Did he not even have a cook with him ?

Philip of Spain wept when his armada went down.
Was he the only one to weep ?

Frederick the 2nd won the 7 Years War.
Who else won it ?

Every page a victory.
Who cooked the feast for the victors ?

Every 10 years a great man.
Who paid the bill ?”

Governance has historically reflected evolutions in technology. The invention of survey methods and navigable maps in Europe during the 16th century created the technology for accurately fixing territorial borders.

The concept spread globally as nationalism during the 19th Century, with catastrophic outcomes for people during the first half of the 20th Century. After World War II, the nation state was ossified in International Law as the only permissible sovereign governance entity and by the of the century had completely supplanted colonial empires and unincorporated territories, creating a global oligopoly on governance and claiming nearly every square meter of habitable space.

However, not all nations are territorial and many people are arbitrarily excluded or forced to live on the fringes of this system.

When the sovereign spirit within us is true to nature, it stands poised and ready to adjust to every change in circumstances and to seize each new opportunity.”
