Corporate tax havens where corporations have some sort of
weird quasi governance, i think like Delta City in Robocop,
people inside the zones more like clientele than citizens?
sounds like some dystopian nightmare

this sounds like "City of Industry, California, 90601"
which, i'm afraid, is not anywhere near as cool as delta
city.

it's just a bunch of factories in a tax haven and people
probably commute to work there for years without knowing it
has its own zip code. i discovered this place when i was
tasked with fixing a bug involving local tax rates

...but the good news is that this means it's not as much of
a nightmare as you'd think, it's essentially just zoning out
a pocket to bring in some companies that'd otherwise turn
their nose up at the area.

seems like one of those economic "tools" that can either,
like, actually help perk things up, or be used to give
someone's buddies a tax break. i'd just keep an eye on that
part and not stress the rest
