Native population? Would the newcomers be able to integrate with the existing. What culture will the new country have.

These would all be specific considerations in choosing a country to liberate or a result of that decision.

Would the liberators form some sort of leadership of the revolution/liberation and then afterwards be the elite?

The problem is that after the liberation you'll be painted as a bunch of evil white colonists by the international community unless you install a social-democrat puppet state. Even then, if someone else wants the country (like the US) they'll denounce the new regime and install one of their own.

I think a better prospect is leasing some land from a cash strapped government Hong Kong style. I made a post about a group doing that in Burma over on /v/libertarian yesterday. There's also Honduran ZEDEs and TSI's project in French Polynesia.

I have no idea the legalities of such an adventure

Well, I can guarantee it's illegal, but that doesn't really matter. There's a lot of nation-state islands that don't have large governments.

Here's a population chart for every nation: http://www.worldometers.info/world-population/population-by-country/

If you click the population column you can choose to sort it by lowest population.

The biggest challenge: What needs to be done with any revolution is winning the people over.

America isn't free, but a lot of people here value individual freedom more than in many other countries, so it may be hard to convince people. On the other hand I'm sure the really really small countries have a lot of individual freedom, so the people may be more open to those ideas...or since its a small country they may have functional socialism that "works" because of their size. Those people would be hard to convince.

Surprisingly, it isn't as clearly as illegal as I would have thought:

As long as we are going after clear scoundrels that aren't at all aligned with US interests we'd probably be ok.

they may have functional socialism that "works" because of their size. Those people would be hard to convince.

Socialism is fully compatible with an ancap society so long as it is voluntary, I expect the only way this works would be some form of minarchism, especially if we want to remain recognized by foreign governments in any way.

What I meant by "works" was, for example, the country of 800 people, I could see that country currently being in one of two "extremes" either the people rely on their government for everything (with a country that size it won't have as many problems like a big country and won't have bureaucracy) or a minarchy where everyone has essentially the freedom to do whatever.

I know voluntary socialist communes could fit in fine with an ancap society. I was saying if the country is very heavily reliant on the current state it would be hard to convince them to be on your side.

Edit: I just looked at my link again and realized what country has the 800 population lol. That "country" is owned by the Catholic church.
