Primary language has to be English as well. So any suggestions?
I think privacy is what you're looking for. If that's the case, Switzerland would the best for you. There isn't any other country that cherishes privacy as much as Switzerland. Besides, it's generally considered a tax haven.

However, don't be surprised if you decide to change the disposition of your living room furniture and some neighbour calls the police over suspicious noises.

It's really odd that some people equate libertarianism with lawlessness and inequality, when in fact the opposite is true.
Wanting the government to be small and leave it's citizens largely alone doesn't mean a free-for-all of murder and theft or no taxation while the infrastructure crumbles.
I mean, seriously? You people really believe that?
An inefficient and clueless government "helping" it's poor citizens by taxing everyone into oblivion to the point that nearly everyone ends up being on the government dole is somehow a good thing?
What difference should it make to anyone if somebody wants to home school their kid? Good grief.
In response to somebody's broadband statement, every broadband connection I've had has been through private companies, not the government. Also, the postal service is something of a joke in this day of e-mail, FedEx, UPS, etc., etc., etc..... the USPS is little more than a black hole for tax dollars.
