re: Can you have a sovereign nation with open borders? - Mephistopheles
All EU states are open borders to all other EU states. That's about 450m people. No work permit required to move, just a job offer, no rule saying home based workers have to be favored over foreign ones (that could be illegal) and no restrictions on travelling within the EU, except for the UK. ...
