We use the term "Welfare state" to describe states that feel responsible to provide its citizens with minimal means allowing to live with dignity, like the education for children, healthcare, housing etc.

Is there a term for the opposite of the welfare state? Which means, a state, that not necessarily wants to make the lives of its citizens as miserable of possible, but simply doesn't care if people have no means to provide their children necessary education, or if they are left without money after retirement.
