Dime Micronationalist of the Month, commonly abbreviated DMM, MM or MotM, is a monthly award that features and honours a micronationalist (or a group, idea, fictional character, etc.) whom, the voters or the Dime committee (if a candidate is unopposed) deem the most influential of that month.[1] It is ran by Statistic-Dime.[2] It primarily represents the MicroWiki Sector. Since it was awarded in January 2019, it steadily grew into a highly anticipated and publicised event.[3][4] The latest winner was Sertor Valentinus for October 2020.[5]


The deciding committee—which is headed by Statistic-Dime CEO Daniel Hamilton—, with the help from community input, chooses who gets put on the final voting ballot, which goes on to get voted on by the public. The poll is usually open for between three days and a week. If the committee has only chosen one candidate, they win unopposed, with no poll taking place.

Historically, Zabëlle Skye, the creator of the award,[6] would solely decide on the candidates for the poll with community input. The poll for the winner would than be voted on by the general public.[3] For the months of August and September 2019, a monthly form which would be open all month was created so any micronationalist may nominate anyone and state their reason for doing so. One could also nominate oneself.

Non-human winners

There have been two non-human winners from various non-human nominees:


There have been three winners (including one honorary) who won as a memorial to them:

For September 2019, the first Honorary Winner was announced, who was Tian Abdurrahman. Abdurrahman passed away on 9 September 2019. He served as Governor of Barakstan from 2012 to 2014; as the fifth President of Indokistan from July 2013 until January 2014; and as Chief of Arkapore from its establishment in January 2014 until his death on 9 September 2019.[3]


Given the disproportion of male to female ratio within micronationalism as a whole, Micronationalist of the Month has been awarded to a considerably larger number of women.[citation needed]

Controversial selections

Both January 2019's Anthony Clark, the first micronationalist to receive the award, and November 2019's "You" (the micronationalist) received notable backlash.

Voting and polling method

Almost all polls have been conducted through Google Forms. The only exceptions were March, which was manually conducted through Discord, and May 2019, which was done with Strawpoll.me. The poll was, however, rigged with voting bots, reported giving one over candidate two-hundred votes. Google Forms has since been used for every poll. The poll is commonly advertised on several Discord servers, most commonly MicroWiki@Discord.



Since it was awarded in January 2019, it steadily grew into a highly anticipated and publicised event. The award has received several endorsements from both nominees and winners.[7] Zabëlle Skye has called it both his and Statistic-Dime's most successful projects ever.

News media

Micronationalist of the Month has been mentioned on a number of journalistic sources, including The Brookside Gazette, The Micronational Times, MicroWeekly, Plushunian News Service and the Ponderosan News Agency.


Emperor Adam I of Adammia, June 2019's winner, posted on Twitter that the award was "A nice way to finish my year-long term as Chair of the GUM."[7] Jayden Lycon, January 2020's winner, mentioned the feat in the Canadian Isabelle - Shrek Super Party manifesto for the Ponderosan Hills general election.[8]


Annually on December, there is a Micronationalist of the Year, where people choose the micronationalist who was the most influential of the year.[9]

  1. "The low amount of votes coincides with the decision to select three candidates through a nominations form, and then vote on them privately in the Statistic-Dime Council. Despite this, the Council voted to select Luxor unanimously."
  2. "You may think you have little value in the community, but everyone plays their part. Whether you fixed a small spelling mistake on the wiki, undid vandalism, helped clean up an article, or just gave someone feedback. Or just chatted on MicroWiki@Discord for 14 hours, was nice to somebody; welcomed them in the community, made someone's day, helped make someone a coat of arms or flag, partook in a survey, joined community discussions, helped keep the community safe, helped develop a micronation, or made micronational culture or media. Or if you just did nothing. Literally nothing. I am sure at least one person got something out of it. You are an important and valued member of the MicroWiki community. Never forget that."
