Special Economic Zones:
Special Jurisdictions with legal exemptions from select laws--typically, import restrictions and taxes--but sometimes with their own commercial codes. Examples include Shenzhen, Shanghai, and Dubai.
Mixed use urban developments administered by third party governments within a host country. Examples include Early American colonies, like Pennsylvania, and proposed contemporary ones.
Privately owned and operated mixed use urban developments. Examples include city-sized HOAs like Highland Park, Colorado, and the Gurgaon in northern India.
Communities in which the residents manage their jointly-owned property. Examples include Co-Op City in the Bronx area of New York, NY, and Marilenda, Spain.
Small states, often no larger than cities. Examples include Liechtenstein, a microstate with one of the highest GDP Per Capita in the world.
