I think a state government is much more responsive to the desires of its citizens than a national government could ever be.  Ideally, a government should be no larger than a city-state, roughly the size of a modern U.S. county.

Yep. In extremely small numbers, even Communism works. In the 1970's and '80's, there were hundreds of communes all over the country.  A few still survive today, but because of the stigma associated with communism, they prefer to call themselves “egalitarian” or “intended” communities.

But they are communes.  And they work fairly well because of two important factors; 

1) It's voluntary. Anyone/everyone is free to leave if they don't like it. (and many do.  LoL)

2)  No corruption.  There's no need for it.

Yes, I guess you could say that any system works if it's voluntary.  Because if it isn't working, everyone would ignore it and it would not be "the" system anymore.

That's why I love my idea that all government services be paid for voluntary by those who directly benefit from them.  Consent of the governed is no issue at all in that case because people consent with their dollars.

Is there a normal for produce prices, though?

Produce should be produced by the people who can produce it and given to those who need it.

If you don't do it that way, before you know it competition will arise and someone will be selling produce at predatory prices and cornering the market on beets.
