National Models

The rules have changed!

Wondering why no new models are being posted here?

We live in a different world now, since a global crisis, called pandemic, began in 2020. Where has democracy gone? Where does autocracy start? There are no new models, since governments no longer want them.

Nevertheless, new seedlings are emerging. Look at what citizens are creating to fill a political gap. Please go to Emerging Models.

The pre-crisis models on this website might even just illustrate a transition towards something completely new.
