In reply to comment: well the law or legal order, (see in situ)

Actually the American Revolution was betrayed by foreign debt.

Then Lincoln smashed the fragile republic, replacing it with a Union that went bankrupt by 1871 or so.

India also threw off British rule, but didn't go in debt to do it.

Joan of Arc also threw out the English and restored the French monarchy.

Not sure that history is clear on this matter.

Being without a ruler does not necessary imply being without laws.

Free includes debt-free!
