Planet Earth and Land Ownership; Freedom of Migration and Practical Restrictions; Local Autonomy; Territorial Reallocation

Section 1.    
Planet Earth belongs to all of its inhabitants equally. The only true and natural sense of land ownership beyond that is owning only the land that you are currently using, which is the space on which you are currently standing. Any act to displace a person from that land is essentially an act of war.
     However, for the sake of increasing productivity and raising our quality of life, certain factions, such as humans, can enter into limited and superficial agreements of land ownership, such as for farming or building dwellings. It is assumed that all those who share our value of a higher standard of living and are capable of understanding such agreements are bound by them. Those who do not share our value of a higher standard of living, they may forfeit the benefits of civilization to forage their portion of land.

Section 2.
Fundamentally, all humans should be able to migrate around the planet freely. However, societies do have the right to regulate immigration and emigration in order to maintain the stability of local markets, human capital investments, and the fairness of land distribution among societies. No country has the right to ever completely restrict immigration and emigration.

Section 3.
Regions must be given ample leeway in self-rule. Laws at the highest/federal level of a country shall be general, and subdivisions (states, provinces, counties, cities, etc.) shall create their own laws within their own boundaries. International law shall only contain the most grievous of crimes and the greatest violations of human quality of life.

Section 4.
In order to incentivize countries to strive towards providing their people with the highest quality of life, countries shall compete over people the way that businesses compete over market-share. Thus, countries shall enter into a global "territory reallocation treaty" such that if significant numbers of people are migrating from one country to another––especially if they are exchanging the citizenship of their former country for citizenship of the new country––the country from which the people are emigrating will lose a proportionate amount of land to the country where the people are relocating.
