Solipsist Citizens

I find "Sovereign Citizens" to be hilarious, and I've met a few. In the linked story, one of them has the possibly appropriate last name of "Hicks".

If I had a variety show, I'd probably make fun of them by having a pair of "Solipsist Citizens" who go around being a nuisance and if anyone complains to them they express doubt that the complainant is a real person. Eventually people stop talking to them so they begin to desperately try to attract attention to themselves and be more of a pest because explaining their worldview is the only way they find meaning in life. And maybe eventually they stumble into a truly empty world in some weird scifi twist ending, and in being right they lose everything.

Or something like that. Would be a fun story idea to explore.
