The description of the "Coexistencialism"

The coexistencialism is characterized by the separation of the government structure in two levels. The first level of government is the central government or the regulator of  governments. This level assure the task that all government are expected to assure since the prehistoric age: security, justice, ecology and diplomacy.

Then, the population is divided into communities. Each community has a distinct  government. A government of the community conducts specific economic and social policies in the community. It collects taxes and imposes a monetary system. The fact to have a distinct monetary system per community, is not mandatory. The same monetary system can be shared between several communities. Communities have so a distinct set of rules.

The access of private company to the consumer market of a community can be restricted by the government of the community. The restriction of access can be done easily if the community has a specific currency or if all payments are done electronically. The company can employ the workforce of the community if the company "registers in the community" and has a part of its activities, which respects the specific accounting standard of the community. A company can be "inter-community" as well as "inter-national". It can have branches in more than one community. In this case, companies  keep separate accounting of their activity per communities and pay taxes accordingly.

The government of a community has the possibility to exercise a lobby on companies in controlling the market share of the community to the products of the company. This lobby is useful to force company to register, pay taxes and to employ the workforce of the community.

A new community is created by a schism from an established community. Social schisms are a natural and beneficial phenomenon in coexistencialism. It will be regulated by the "coexistencialism" constitution and controls by the central regulator. 

People can migrate from one community to another. But, the right to migration is  regulated to preserve the right of the existing member of a community. A community can implement an examination in order to be sure that new immigrants know the moral values of the community. A community can also ask to the immigrant to pay an entry tax in order to be fair with existing members who had financed the success of the community by paying taxes. The right of citizenship in a community of a member would have a value. Citizens who wants to leave a community for another might exchange their rights of citizenchip in an organized market against the right of citizenship of the community where they want to immigrate into. These mechanisms will have an effect to motivate the citizens of a community to take care of the image of their communities. Another advantage is if a community is created during a schism, the selling right of the citizenship to the former community will be an initial investment to finance the creation of the new community.

The central regulator would have the role to correct excess if a community became too elitism and has the policy to attract the most valuable professionals and reject other citizens. The central regulator will correct the transfer of prosperity in putting a tax on the elitist community.
