In micropatrology, themed micronationalism is a concept where micronations base one or more of their aspects on a particular theme. This is predominantly cultural, but can also extend to areas such as economics and religion.

Many themed micronations fall into at least one of four categories:

  • Historic, where nations are themed around a particular historic era, or in some cases, draw their inspiration from "futuristic" elements. These are sometimes referred to as historical simulations.
  • Geographic, where nations are themed around a particular nation or locale.
  • Religious, where nations are themed around elements of various religions.
  • Political, where nations are themed around a particular political basis, usually socialism or communism.

Historic micronations

This advertisement for Sirocco's National Post and Telegraph merges the nation's 1950s culture with its 1990s tech subculture.

Geographically-themed micronations

  • Pavlov is heavily based on the Russian culture, most notably on the medieval one and that of Ivan Grozny's period, but also deriving some elements from the modern-day Russian Federation.
  • Zealandia draws heavily from Scandinavian culture, particularly that of Sweden, in order to create its own national identity. Zealandia has in the past been referred to as a "Sweden of the South Seas".

Religious micronations

  • Deseret is heavily influenced by Mormonism in most, if not all, areas of its culture and politics.
  • Egan is influenced by the teachings of Paracelsus, and the Stardew Valley cult of Yoba.
  • Pavlov introduced Eastern Orthodoxy as the official religion.
  • Sandum culture is based around Buddhism.
  • New Velothis grew from the Tribunal Temple Reconstruction community and is influenced heavily by it.

Political micronations

  • Many small communist nations absorb politics into their everyday culture, and often draw upon North Korea and the Soviet Union for inspiration - Cuba and China have also been cited.
  • Pavlov is known for reintroducing the Julian Calendar, banning atheism and all religions other than Eastern Orthodoxy, and Communism.
  • Sirocco is notably different in that it draws upon anti-Communism to form part of its culture. This can be attributed to its Atomic Age mindset.
