Are there an isolated, self-governing English-speaking communities?

I'm looking to do my PhD research on a small community that speaks English and doesn't have a larger government controlling it/making decisions for it/policing it. I was thinking first about Tristan da Cunha, but it turns out that the British government has officials on there that are a bit controlling. I've also been thinking about Lasqueti Island, but I don't know much about it. Small tribes would also work - I'm pretty open. I want to study how people prevent other people from bossing them around or dominating them, while still making group-wide decisions.
