As stated, your question doesn't make sense.

Can we simply make these easier and announce all citizens? I'll go first. Proud American.

You can't give up what you don't have...

While you could give up your American citizenship, you might want to find a place that will take you in first.

I have dual citizenship, Canada and UK.    I can renounce either but must keep one.  To get to zero citizenship, I would have to acquire US citizenship, then renounce the Canadian or UK (whatever I kept ) and then renounce US citizenship.  I would then be a non-citizen of everywhere.  The US is one of the only nations that allows renouncing citizenship without a succesor.   This came about by having a beer with my immigration lawyer, neighbour.

The Republic of Texas is your answer.

What was your question again?

There were lots of people saying they were going to do this back in 2016. We’re still waiting for them to live up to it.😁

In your case because your parents are not Americans then American Samoa would probably do as well.  They are the only nation to have a non citizenship class.  But you would have to be born there to be a non citizen.

Stuck in immigration at some far off airport in the Middle East surviving on coin donations from weary travelers and vending machine candy bars.

I see a movie.

...check with Sea Org. I bet those guys could set you up. They kept the old man stateless and hidden away for the final 20 years of his life.

Magical. Then you would never have to pay taxes... but basically live the existence of a gnat blowing in the wind.

Scientologists ain't hippies, pretty much the opposite of that, the way I think of it.

Get your checkbook out. The renounced country isn't going to let you go for free. Depending on the value of your assets, the cost can be significant.

Downside is renouncing US citizenship (or even a long term green card) can be expensive if you have to pay the exit tax.

I am sure.  I just found it interesting the US was the only country to allow it without an alternate citizenship.  Maybe because you have rights and the rest of us only have privilege.  Well, until they are taken away.. :)
