    I'm not sure how you'd go about forming your own town, though. There'd be problems with whatever local districts, townships, and counties; needless to say, rights over natural resources vis a vis surrounding communities and issues with any prior existing population and their land rights. You'd also have to find enough people to join, and provide them all jobs, for which you'd need a shitload of infrastructure. To name just a few.

    Israel is a pretty good example of what happens when people try to do this.

    You might want to focus on buying some property and forming a commune. Good luck!!

    A commune then. 75 people can really fuck up your bubble though.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Aren't there ghost towns you can buy? Wait. Here's a list.
    Edit:
    If you started out with a place that you can dig functional wells and use septic systems, that might be helpful. So maybe not someplace real far west. And then you'd need a way to bring in money from outside and an online business of some kind would probably be the best bet for that. You'd have to get internet access set up somehow. I don't know how hard it would be to get an electric plant set up. Maybe an old coal mining town or use solar or wind?

    The farthest I've ever got thinking about that kind of thing was a family compound, which I can't imagine ever getting over 50 people. At this rate, it looks like we'll be lucky to get to twenty. I thought of buying an old roadside hotel or trailer park or camp ground.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    What is it with social 7w6s and wanting to do a better job ruling a town or the world lol??

    Has anyone else come across this before?

    That being said, I think it's a great idea and I write & fantasize about such things very often. I won't elaborate much here but there will be some ideas in my novel when its published.

    The word design, to me, in this context, implies wanting to control and or caring. I lack both of these qualities when it comes to unknown others.

    That said I really love me a good RTS or turn based + RTS strategy game where I get to call the shots and work towards world domination, i.e. Dawn of War, Total War, Europa Universalis, Hearts of Iron etc.

    Real people... not so much.

    May I suggest a hobby in PC gaming to work out these urges?
    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... Some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age.

    I used to be very a very avid fan of PC games for that reason, though now I feel it is time to make it reality. Imagine a community based on happiness, rather than whatever most communities are based on. John Stuart Mill is a good read. I have libertarian-leanings, myself--so controlling other people too much would make me a bit of a hypocrite, don't you suppose?

    You write, too?
    I am trying to get my novelette published as we speak.

    I could start a crazy town in the middle of nowhere. I can round up all the crazy people- there's a lot of them in my world- and put them there and see how they fare. (And then I will get the FLOCK outa there!)

    To get a town?

    So I guess you'd have to find 75 people who'd like to settle in a new place and want to create a new town. Maybe you could get a group to take over some crap corporate headquarters or something and townify it.

    I agree with @cafe, though--you should utilize wind and solar as your electricity forms. It's the way of the future!! You could be in charge of the first sustainable city!
