A micronation is a political entity whose members claim that they belong to an independent nation or sovereign nation state lacking legal recognition by world governments or major international organizations. Most are geographically very small, or just online but range in size from a single square foot to millions of square miles (Westartica).
Micronations contrast with microstates, which are small but recognized sovereign states such as Andorra, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco ,San Marino, and Vatican City. They are also distinct from imaginary countries and from other kinds of social groups (such as eco villages, campuses, tribes, clans, and sects.
Micronations generally have a number of common features, although these may vary widely. They may have a structure similar to established sovereign states, including territorial claims, government institutions, official symbols and citizens, albeit on a much smaller scale. Micronations are often quite small, in both their claimed territory and claimed populations—although there are some exceptions to this rule, with different micronations having different methods of citizenship. Micronations may also issue formal instruments such as postage stamps, coins, banknotes and passports, and bestow honours and titles of nobility.
The Montevideo Convention was one attempt to create a legal definition distinguishing between states and non-states. Some micronations meet this definition, while some do not, and others reject the convention. Some micronations like Sealand reject the term micronation and consider themselves as sovereign states; other micronations like Flandrensis or Molossia have no intention to be recognized as real states.
Montevideo Convention of 1933 defines the four requirements of statehood: you must have a defined territory, a government, a permanent population, and the ability to enter foreign relations.
The Empire also rejects the name micronation, though that is what many refer to us as. We are a sovereign Empire who meets all the requirements for statehood. We also allow duel citizenship as our Imperial family also enjoys United States Citizenship as well.
