A micronation is a political entity that claims to be a sovereign state but is not recognised as such by the wider international community. Micronations are treated as distinct from conventional unrecognised states, although there is no widespread consensus within micropatriology over what exactly constitutes a micronation or distinguishes it from other unrecognised states. Broadly speaking, micronations are created and developed as a hobby, with their claims to sovereignty considered trivial enough to be ignored by the conventional sovereign states whose territory they claim; micronations whose ultimate goal is to receive international recognition as sovereign states are termed secessionist, and micronations without this goal are termed simulationist."

The areas of today's Kingdom of Damora were inhabited by nomadic tribes of the Baltic pagans called Yotvingians, whose inhabited areas were called Yotvingia, therefore, today's citizens of the Kingdom of Damora are speculated, to be descendants of the Yotvingians.
The Yotvingians separated from the Baltic Prussia at the earliest in the 10th century CE. Originally, they inhabited the area between the Great Masurian Lakes in the west, the Nemunas river in the east and north, and Biebrza or even Narew in the south. Under the influence of fights with Poles, Teutonic Knights and Ruthenians and their colonization action, the territory of Yotvingia was shrinking and in the 13th century it was limited to the so-called proper Yotvingia, i.e. the area of Suwałki, Sejny, Augustów, Olecko and Ełk. They also lived in Lacki Curds. Under the Melna Treaty of 1422, Yotvingia was divided between the Kingdom of Poland, the Teutonic Order and the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. Presumably the main center of Yotvingia was the stronghold in Szurpiły.
