A libertarian utopia or libertarian paradise is any of the following:

  1. a hypothetical society in which marketist (i.e. US libertarian) ideas are taken to their logical conclusion
  2. any actual society or group which has substantially adopted (or was founded upon) such principles
  3. any populated area of the world that has been essentially free of government for a substantial length of time

The second definition tends to be sarcastic, since such societies invariably degenerate into corrupt hell-holes – despite frequent marketist claims that such principles will inevitably lead to a happier, more egalitarian and economically just society.
