What a minarchy looks like

The best portrayal of a minarchy I've ever seen -- and I read a LOT -- has to be Beth Cody's Looking Backward: 2162-2012 A View from a Future Libertarian Republic It's a novel with a lot of political dialogue, very well written, despite the characters being more archetypical than realistic. Read it on Kindle for 99 cents.

Two other novels on nation-building that might interest you are Robert Lukens' The Place To Stand (an anarchist billionaire buys himself half of Madagascar) and Thomas Perry's Island (a con man builds his own country . . . and lots of interesting things happen; not extremely libertarian, but thought-provoking and a LOT of fun.)

And for some pertinent thoughts on what a moral, freedom-minded person would do in a position of power, NOBODY does it better than Larken Rose, in The Iron Web.
