Also bitcoin doesn't even

Also bitcoin doesn't even need the internet as much as you may realize. You can print out your very own paper wallet and never connect it to a computer:

If you do not trust that site you can download the javascript and run it on a non-internet connected PC and print your wallets that way. Various projects exists that do something similar by connecting a small non-internet connected box to a printer for added security.
All of my cryptocoin wallets are done this way. Research the pros and cons if you decide to do this.

The block-chain that makes up bitcoin doesn't necessarily need the internet to survive either. The internet makes it much more convenient but no matter how much shutting down the government does, the block chain will always exist somewhere. It will work its way around prohibited networks. Even if that means transmitting it by carrier pigeon.
