Angelina United States, along the Border with Canada. More moose than people in North Dakota.
Also, yes, this would not happen in Germany or Canada - but we're Federal countries. Which means that really the capital is in charge.
The United States is better thought of as the European Union than an actual country. Every state can and does do what it wants, and that flows down to it's counties as well. The US also ELECTS it's judges and prosecutors, rather than the Government appointing trained and certified people according to some Federal standard.
So do I believe some side deal is possible in the State with 10 people every square mile? Yeah.
So @Angelina, it would be more accurate to ask if you see this happening, maybe, in Bulgaria, Romania or the Czech Republic.
