But not everyone in a

But not everyone in a geographic area has to be part of a particular government for it to be a Republic.

Indian tribes had their own government. Anarcho-Capitalists want multiple protection services (similar to governments) to be running at once, and you can choose which one you want to belong to.

Why can't people form their own government to govern themselves? It's not any different than the right to association. Different associations would exist, and people would be a lot happier.

The beginning of the Constitution of Pennsylvania of 1776 has similar sentiments about forming your own governments voluntary.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
