The Kolniari Sector is a micronational sector in the northern area of Glasgow, Scotland. Kolniari comes from the Sprinske language, roughly translating into English as ‘regional similarities. It is home to the majority of micronations in Glasgow, defunct or active.

As a geographical sector, the nations are in close proximity to each other, but are also close in culture, history and other aspects. At one point, communism dominated the region, but since the Sprinske Civil War, it has practically vanished. The strongest of these nations is the Sprinske Empire, which is due to the fact that Emperor Aaron I is known for developing the navy and Air Force of every nation he ever had anything to do with.


The name ‘Kolniari’ comes from the Sprinske word Kol’njari, meaning ‘regional similarities, but spelling was changed to avoid confusion, (Both words are pronounced identically). Although not the basis for the name, Kólniari means Glasgow in Kaltarsian, but this does derive from the Sprinske word Kol’njari.

For the demonymic form ‘Kolniaric’, it was chosen by the Prime Minister of the Sprinske Communist Republic and was reportedly chosen due to the fact that the White Star Line used ‘ic’ at the end of their ships’ names, and due to the fact that the Prime Minister was very interested in ocean liners at the time.


There have been 19 Kolniaric Nations, eleven of which presently exist. The nations are categorised in three groups, first, second and third generation Kolniari nations.

Ancient Kolniari

Ancient Kolniari is widely recognised as the first era of Kolniaric history. It replaced the term 'First Generation' because that only described the micronations and their creation dates, whereas Ancient Kolniari is a term describing the entire era. This era roughly corresponds to the era of Kolniaric history before documenting events and their dates became standard practice. Ancient Kolniari is widely accepted to have began in mid July 2017, with the fall of the Windsor State, a short-lived micronation which existed from late June to mid July 2017. This micronation remains mostly a mystery, and it’s unknown how secessionist or simulationist it was, but the nation’s president brought the idea of micronationalism back home with him when he returned to Scotland after a sixteen day stay in Canada. He began experimenting with different micronations, eventually creating the Republic of Donkrea, the first known Ancient Kolniaric nation. Many other micronations are rumoured to have existed during this era, but very few of them have any sort of evidence of their existence. Ancient Kolniari was mainly confined to the Donkrean Subsector, with some spillover into South Kolniari, but North Kolniari, which is now considered to be the main part of the sector, wasn’t discovered by Kolniaric nations yet. Ancient Kolniari lasted from July 2017 until the Sprinske Revolution on 30 October 2020.

Kolniari’s artificially created culture is largely based on both Celtic and Eastern European culture, with some Napoleonic influences. Most of the citizens of the Kolniaric nations are of Scottish and Irish heritage, so the Celtic aspect of Kolniaric culture is very natural, but some traces of Eastern European culture are also found due to the sector’s long obsession with the Soviet Union. The Napoleonic aspect comes from the fact that many Kolniaric nations based their system of government on Napoleon Bonaparte. Until very recently, the sector was dominated by communism, but since the dissolution of the People’s Democratic Republic of Sprinske, there are no more communist nations in the area.
