We don;t like illegal immigrants over here, no matter where you come from originally.
You may last a month, or a couple of years over here, but you WILL eventually be caught, because you have no identity, no paper trail, you do not exist in the system..
Just an outstanding arrest warrant as an illegal entrant into Australia.
That is generated automatically as they have a record of you coming, but no record of you leaving within the stipulated time..
Don't know about other countries, but forget about sneaking into Australia.

If I were too (hypothetically) leave the US with no cash with just a backpack, how would I survive?
Okay, let's say I were to leave the US with a one way plane ticket to another country, first things first, where would be the best place to go (as in the easiest place to survive & thrive)?
After I have that question answered, what would I need to do to survive? I'm a smart person, but I have no money. The only plus is I have no obligations, no responsibilities, nothing. I really don't care about returning to the states, other than having some family and a couple friends that I truly love and care about that live there. However they can always come visit me.
Oh, by the way, did I say this is hypothetical?

Well you already have one skill that's useful, you speak English. Why not volunteer to teach English as a second language somewhere overseas, they are screaming out for people all the time. A workmate of mine is looking into this at the moment, he's sick of the UK and I might just join him as I feel the same way.

I highly reccomend Neil Strauss' book "Emergency: This book will save your life!" It discusses how to obtain citizenship in other countries, how to survive on your own without electricity or water, and just how to get around with no cash-on-hand.
And, on top of all of that, it's a nice read. Pick it up on Amazon for just a few bucks if you're interested in a read-through.
What this book is not: 1. A manual that dwells on options. Example, the only solution Neil offers for economic safeguarding is wiring $500,000 to St. Kitts and buying property there, and later becoming a citizen. Not a scalable solution. 2. About currency, passports, swiss banking etc. - basically all the topics about becoming a "lawsuit-proof global citizen" or opening up your personal options internationally are glossed over. The law firm in charge of "lawsuit proofing" Neil is under investigation by the end of the book. 3. A practical guide to anything really that can save your life, unless you take it to be advice that you should take a half dozen survivalist courses and practice sleeping in your backyard.
