Anarchy: How a Region of Somalia Just Solidified Its Independence
By Joe Jarvis - November 26, 2017

If you hate the government so much, why don’t you move to Somalia?

That might soon be a great option. The truth is Somalia is not without government. It actually has multiple governments.

In the south, you see corruption, crime, and gang-like government oppression. This is what the United Nations and most of the international community call the official government of Somalia.

And in the north there is a separatist state called Somaliland. Here crime is lower, and the economy is freer. More people have power and water. The standard of living is higher. The region bases its law on the historical Xeer system, similar to Common Law.

And until now, no international entity wanted to recognize Somaliland.

Did the people protest? Did the government petition the UN? Did they rebel against the southern “official” government?

No. Economic opportunity surfaced. Somaliland’s first international ally is not a government, but a business.
