What is a micronation?
A micronation is a small area that considers itself an independent state but is not recognized by larger, recognized states. Micronations can be found all over the world and they vary in size, population and administration. Some micronations have few residents and are intended as experiments or as expressions of individualism or creativity. Others have larger populations and are earnestly seeking recognition as an independent state. Typically, however, micronations are not recognized as full-fledged nations by larger, recognized states, and thus have no official international recognition or sovereignty.
