Interesting. A similar concept appeared in Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged". As a libertarian, Thiel must be familiar with this story.
I think that such a "state" would be tolerated by the powers that be only until it became problematic. Once they became a "thorn", they wouldn't last long. True power is having an idea that people are willing to stand behind or even die for without the promise of glory or monetary reward. I think these "super wealthy" will find themselves standing alone and only then will realize that their "importance" was always justified in measure.
