Leon Montan (born 9 July 2006, Berkeley, California) is a Ponderosan statesman and revolutionary, having ruled Ponderosa Hills since 2016. Due to his role within Ponderosa Hills, he is generally credited with most of the political and cultural development of the nation. Montan is also an influential figure within the MicroWiki community, and is typically known as a leader of the "new guard" of the community.

Montan's first micronation was called Epiclandia, founded by a seven year-old Montan on 1 June 2014. Eventually, on 26 July 2016, at age ten, Montan founded the People's Republic of Ponderosa Hills, and appointed himself as President, and his cat, Sixy Montan, as Prime Minister. This entity was quickly forgot about, however, and was replaced by a more democratic republic once the President remembered about the entity. He would found the Republic of Ponderosa Hills on November 2017, and drafted a constitution for it, defining the nation's claims. It later became the Kingdom of Ponderosa Hills on 27 April 2018, and Montan served as Prime Minister whilst Sixy was appointed King Sixy I. It was succeeded by the Empire of Ponderosa Hills on 14 May 2019, greatly increasing its popularity after he became active on MicroWiki@Discord. On 31 May 2020, the People's Republic of Ponderosa Hills replaced the Empire of Ponderosa Hills, which would eventually be replaced by the third socialist state, the Socialist Federal Union of Ponderosa Hills, on 21 December 2020.

Montan is both an influential and polarized figure in the MicroWiki community, particularly among the so-called "New Guard"; his views and skepticism of various topics in the community, such as the Grand Unified Micronational, hard secessionism and the MicroWiki administration have been both lauded and criticized. He played a large role in the MicroWiki@Discord Administrative Protests of 2020, later creating the Council of 18% in order to centralize the movement, and as a co-founder and owner of TOES inadvertently split the Reddit Sector during the TOES-Almendria War. He is also widely known as the subject of the Face of Leon Montan meme, and to a lesser extent for "cornposting". In December 2020, Statistic-Dime declared him the 13th Most Influential Micronationalist of 2020.

Early life

Montan was born in Berkeley, California on 9 July 2006.

Political career

Ponderosa Hills


Montan is a member of the Batu Party and is the Speaker of the Bok of Rai. On 29 August 2020, Montan founded the Islamic Resistance Movement, an organization that aims to become a political party. The organization has been rejected party status. Later, he joined the Parti de Brigade des Électeur Fem-garçon, a political organization in the process of becoming a political party created by Jayden Lycon, Zabëlle Skye, and himself. On 2 January 2021, Montan became Seneschal; he was, however, barred from holding public office in Rai on 13 January.[1]


Montan was formerly a citizen of Cycoldia. He has been an enemy of the state since 20 January 2020, and a level 1 persona non grata, the highest rank of persona non grata in the country, since 16 March 2021.[2]

Personal life

Montan lives in the Arsenal area of Arastraville with his mother, and cat, Sixy. On a more satirical level, Montan serves as a Prophet and the Pope of Bobism, where he has taken the papal name of Landon.[a] Montan is a native speaker of English, has a basic knowledge of Spanish, and has a very limited knowledge of Tigrinya.

Political views

Montan is a self-described revolutionary nationalist and socialist. Before its dissolution, he was the Chair of ¡Venceremos! - The Liberation Front, and a member of the Liberal Party of Ontario, despite not being a liberal or a resident of Ontario.
