Hi, let me answer your questions:
(Where) Do I pay taxes when I technically don't have a residence?
It is as silver surfer says. The most important aspect is to not longer be considered tax resident in your home country.
If you are no longer considered resident for tax reasons anywhere, you don't have to pay taxes anywhere.
I am also a non resident non tax payer. Read the following:

Is it allowed by European/German law to not have a residence?
The only country that taxes its citizens regardless of where they life are the US and Eritrea.
In the rest of the world youare taxed based on residence.
So once you are out of the picture there is no incentive of getting
As it was mentioned somewhere, a lot of tax authorities demand proof that you are no longer resident, even going as far as asking for a utilitybill of your new home. But... Not all. In my case it took about 10 minutes. In any case, this is something you REALLY have to get clear.
For example, the Finish tax authorities consider you tax resident for another three years, even if you have stopped being an actual resident.
Are there countries where you can get a residence w/o staying 6 month/year or large investments,
UAE / Dubai. You can get a residence permit and you only have to be there once every six months. You can get a visa based on employment.

- get someone to put you on the payroll
And there are many others.
that do not tax non-remitted foreign-sourced income?
There are a lot of countries. Look at the following list at the first two categories.
Can you recommend a good European/German tax advisor who could give a professional opinion?
Contact me if you have more questions. I have helped 100s of clients this matter in my last pre-nomad job.
Do I need to start a company to invoice an US company for consultancy work?
You can also invoice as an individual. But there are a number of other reasons why it is wise to set up a company.
I wrote about that here: https://theglobalcitizen.co/set-up-a-company/
Other points raised:
I personally would not value the paper promises of highly indepted Western governments that much.
My father did that and already lost about 10% of his entire pension plan the last couple of year because they are no longer indexing.
You yourself can have a health insurance and save for your pension.
You do not need a bureaucrat to tell you how to do it.
Have a good day, all.
