Heres an off the wall one with a historical connectionThere is an old B&W comedy film called 'Passport to Pimlico". Pimlico is an area of London near to Victoria and in this film the reisdents discover an acient charter that says that they are actually not part of England but belong to the Duchy of Burgendy. Thus they become an area sealed off from the rest of London. Initially it seems to be all profitable as they dont pay taxes etc but when they realise they have no police etc all sorts of undesirable people move in to take advantage.I guess the basis of the plot would not have been lost on Kings and lords from earleir times as there was a continuous swapping of allegiances.
