The Fun Gang (TFG) is a micronational social club hosted on Discord. Initially formed on 2 October 2020 by Daniel Hamilton and Zarel Smith, they later invited Casper von Naveria, Brayden 'Mr.Lee' Eaves, Max Baez, and David Easterling, the former two being credited as co-founders. Hamilton serves as the group owner, and is the de facto leader of the club. Since November, several micronationalists have become members, whilst others have either withdrew or been kicked for a variety of reasons.
As of March 2021, 88,545 messages have been sent in the group, with nearly a quarter of these messages being sent by Hamilton, with over 20,000 messages sent.
Due to Discord only allowing a maximum of ten users on a group DM at any time, this is also the limit for the number of people in TFG. Currently, eight out of ten positions are held, but in the past several vacancies have opened up over time.

A common practice within TFG is getting 'cancelled'. This involves being removed from the group by Daniel Hamilton and re-added within seconds, often due to something said by the cancelled individual being regarded as "cringe".
Every member of TFG has been cancelled, with it even having become a rite of passage for all new members of the group. Often during the short period of time the cancelled individual has been removed, a controversial micronationalist will be added in their place for less than a minute. This has led to several micronationalists having been members of TFG for mere seconds without realising, most notably Yaroslav Mar and Dionisiy Tezdzhan-Smahin.
