Father of the Nation

The term Father of the Nation (also known as Father of the Country, Founding Father or rarely known by the original Latin title of Pater Patriae) is an honorific title used to describe an individual who directly contributed to the foundation of a Nation. Typically, the Father of the Nation is a political figure who helped establish the modern State of his country, although the term can also be applied to figures who sparked drastic cultural or social changes in a country. Where multiple individuals were involved in the creation of the State the term Founding Fathers is often applied instead of Father of the Nation. Although the title is traditionally male, female variations can also exist.

Micronationally, the Father of the Nation is usually the figure who first had the idea of establishing a micronation and/or set about the realisation of that idea. The Father of the Nation usually becomes the first, or only, political leader of that micronation (although there have been exceptions). In some instances, the Father of the Nation may be a revolutionary or later leader who contributed massively to the development of the nation in question. In Communist States, it is usually the leading revolutionary who establishes themselves as the Founding Father. Even if they do not lead the nation personally, it is common for micronational Founding Fathers to hold a great deal of political influence and power over micronational affairs.
