MZM's origins can be traced back to 2001 with the formation of the Intermicronational Media and News Network. In 2002, IMNN moved from the Commonwealth of the Central Islands (CCI) to Aerlig where it began publishing the Aerlig Post. After Z Media Group was formed in 2003 in Mediterranea, and in 2004 AfterZ and IMNN unite into the AfterZ/IMNN Company. The group changed its name and organisation after the sale of 40% of the company in 2004 to the Micronational (After)Z Media Group, before becoming simply MZM: Micronational Media Group in late 2004.


Ownership

MZM was fully owned by Lachlan Powers until 2004 when he sold 40% of the company to Inscriptvs Media Group (IMG) in Treesia in return for a 20% stake in IMG. Plans were discussed for the sale of the remaining stake of MZM to IMG, but never eventuated.
