Have any of you ever come across the term “micro-nation” ?
Well,Wikipedia offers an explanation and this is it :
Micronations—sometimes also referred to as model countries and new country projects—are entities that claim to be independent nations or states but which are not recognized by world governments or major international organizations.
And NO. This is not one of my lame jokes !
This is actualy TRUE !
Yeah ! There are lotta “micro-nations” out there .
While some are a couple of years old,there are some which have been around for sometime now. Like the Kingdom of Elleore which has been around since 1944.
Most of them are Ruled by a Ruler\Emperor\King.
Majority of them have their own FLAG !
Have their own Website.
And Some have even gone to the extent of having their own Currency !
The Best part is,you can apply for CITIZENSHIP in a few of these nations !
And guess what .
Am a MEMBER of one of them. =D
Wiki says,”These nations often exist only on paper, on the Internet, or in the minds of their creators.” So,automatically you’d assume,”These are very peaceful nations with peace-loving citizens”. That some seems to be the case with most Nations. But then,as always,as exceptions there are nations which have had WAR with other Nations !
Most MICRO-Nations,as the name suggests,are jus few square miles. But some are even smaller,like the….
This Nation is located somewhere off the coast of England.
And that is all there is to that Nation occupied by former British Major Paddy Roy Bates,his associates and family.
They have their own Flag,currency and to enter Sealand you need to have a VALID,AUTHENTIC Passport Issued by the Bates Family Thesmelves.
I guess It should looks something like This :
The “Battle For Sealand” is probably the most pointless war in the history of mankind ever.
In August 1978, while Bates and his wife were in England, Alexander Achenbach, who describes himself as the Prime Minister of Sealand, hired several German and Dutch mercenaries to spearhead an attack of Roughs Tower. They stormed the tower with speedboats and helicopters, and took Bates’ son hostage.
And no,whatever you are reading is 100% true !
GO TO the wiki page if you dont believe me !
And so the continuation :
Bates was able to retake the tower and capture Achenbach and the mercenaries. Achenbach, a German lawyer who held a Sealand passport, was charged with treason against Sealand and was held unless he paid DM 75,000 (more than US$ 35,000 or £23,000). The governments of the Netherlands, Austria and Germany petitioned the British government for his release, but the United Kingdom disavowed his imprisonment, citing the 1968 court decision. Germany then sent a diplomat from its London embassy to Roughs Tower to negotiate for Achenbach’s release. Roy Bates relented after several weeks of negotiations and subsequently claimed that the diplomat’s visit constituted de facto recognition of Sealand by Germany.
Following his repatriation, Achenbach and Gernot Putz established a “government in exile“, sometimes known as the Sealand Rebel Government, or Sealandic Rebel Government, in Germany, Aschenbach’s appointed successor, Johannes Seiger, continues to claim via his website that he is Sealand’s legitimate ruling authority.
So much for a piece of floating land !

If you do create one after reading this article make sure that you inform me i’ll help you out.
1.Come up with a pointless name :
Yes. This is necessary. The more pointless it is,the more easy it is for the people to remember. Like,the nation called,”WY”,or,”Hay-on-Wye”.
2.Decide what will be part of your kingdom :
This is the main part in establishing your own country. It gives an identity to your nation. Anything can be part of your kingdom.
Your own backyard,or your girlfriends car. Hell,even your Dog’s Kennel.
3.Declare Yourself as the Emperor :
Proclaim yourself as the king/emperor/ruler or if you like GOD of the nation. Remember,No one’s stopping you. And give yourself a cool nickname. No one wants your real name. Something like,Emperor SixFoot or King BigDong should be awesome.
4. SetUp Own Site and Advertise :
Yes,you NEED to have a website,to show the world that you have your own motherfucking country and its your rules from now on ! And yea,advertise like crazy. Invite people for membership. But dont accept all of them,have a strict filtering process. You dont want another AUSTRALIA do you ?
YES ! NOW YOU ARE AWESOME AND YOU NEED TO ANSWER ONLY TO YOURSELF AND TO EVERY ONE ELSE YOU CAN JUST
