Continuing the theme, I would like to express an opinion on the question of interest almost all - about taxes.
It is rather difficult. Among the goals of Asgardia the declared equality of citizens. Actually, quite convincingly statistically proven (for example here: https://www.equalitytrust.org.uk/resources/the-spirit-level) that a society is the less suffers from various vices and even more safely than less inequality, and the closer it is to real communism. However, the problem of Asgardia is the source of considerable initial inequality of its citizens. What would be fair taxation, for example, a successful lawyer from Western Europe and the mother of many children from Central Africa? Especially if the latter gets a natural labor pay in the form of a sack of potatoes.
Obviously, the fixed amount is a mockery of the greater part of the citizens, because the bulk of the population generally has a much lower income level than the so-called "Golden billion". Flat tax scale would be less mockery, because at low levels of income is important even small amount. Progressive scale of taxation, particularly with a large multiplying factor, by contrast, is a mockery already over wealthy citizens – they do not have to sponsor all the others, especially because they are usually more qualified and are directly involved in the provision of space activities. Residence rights in more silt less economically prosperous environment – usually not his fault and not his credit, that's a given for this task.
Somewhere in the discussion at the forum was the proposal to introduce a tax only for residents of the localities of Asgardia. Consider this a bad idea – first of all, now no localities is actually there, and secondly, is discrimination based on place of residence – these people are also not obligated to sponsor all the others.
I see the following solution to the problem.
To the Constitution needs to be included about the following thesis: "The taxes of Asgardia charged solely only with incomes of Asgardian citizens, derived from their activities in the interests of Asgardia and using its infrastructure".
People that support Asgardia, obviously, in any case, plan to engage in activities related to the fulfillment of its tasks. Given the task of preventing space threats, one of the directions are aimed at detecting anomalies in large data (asteroids, space debris, instability of solar activity, fires, etc.) – those are bad to solve modern computers and even artificial neural networks, but easily solved by people, starting from preschool age. To participate in such projects Asgardia only need access to the Internet and computer technology. Such programs already operate on a voluntary basis. Another direction is the participation in distributed computing using systems like BOINC. Third – physically distributed temporary creative groups to address current scientific, engineering and other tasks. In this case, the scale of the tax may be flat, a percentage transferred to the budget of Asgardia remuneration from citizens for the performance of such tasks.
With regard to citizens working on future production or other enterprises, for example, for the production and maintenance of aerospace equipment, owned by Asgardia, as the main place of work – they have to pass the same tax rate, but their jobs, by definition, are high paid by virtue of required qualification.
These moments are determined of separate legal acts after the adoption of the Constitution.
I note the problem.
Such a model will be effective in a rapidly growing economy Asgardia and ineffective – at stagnating. From the outset, therefore requires the participation of Asgardia in large-scale, high budget projects for external customers – existing states or big companies of the Earth.
This is a question for the founders.
