A micronation is a small group or entity that acts as if it were a nation or a state. There are many micronations in existence; Talossa has been considered to be the most prominent, although modern derivativists argue that Talossa is (or aims to be) a full nation-state.
List of micronations
There are many self-proclaimed micronations in existence. These include:
- "A micronation is an entity created and maintained as if it were a nation and/or a state, and generally carrying with it some, most or all of the attributes of nationhood, and likewise generally carrying with it some of the attributes of statehood. Though a micronation may well have begun as a mere drollery, it has the potential (given the evolution of a sufficiently vital national culture) to develop into a true nation, and possibly to achieve statehood." -Peter Ravn Rasmussen
