Not ALL nations are capitalist

As a lurker of libcom (normally) I’ve understood you are against all nations. But this seems very dogmatic to me. Surely it’s about time that libcom reassess such a narrow attitude, because some nations are potentially not dominated by capitalist social relations. It seems to be quite a determinist point of view, in fact. Of course, all interaction between people everywhere expresses some elements of the contradictions of capitalism, but we should distinguish between the very obviously capitalist nations and those which tend to oppose capitalism.

I myself have gone to Insemi and Polli and then onto Impreg and Germi, and there was nothing particularly capitalist about the experience.
Of the very obviously capitalist nations - I would group the following: Abomi, Alie, Coro, Contami, Domi, Indoctri, Machi, Resig, Rui and Subordi.
But nations like Combi, Coordi, Dissemi, Expla, Illumi, Imagi, Indig, Peregri and Reexami are not intrinsically capitalist. On a personal level, in the constant war between Stag and Rejuve, I side with Rejuve every time.
And at this time of the year, I think Hiber is worth a visit.
And though Self-Determi has been co-opted by capitalists ever since Woodrow Wilson, outside of any capitalist perspective, it seems like somewhere everybody should aim for by going via Insubordi.

What do you think?

And the social revolution is already underway in the Culmi Nation, I presume.

It's a well known fact that Narnia is a Christian fundamentalist state. A recent photo showing Aslan and his government enjoying their supper has come to light, while on the wings, his people suffer at the paws of his brutal police. If there was any justice, that supper would be his last.

This one's easy: Dude's always chasing after gold, so he's obviously one of those Austrian school of economics nutters.
