Welcome to MicroWiki
MicroWiki is the largest online encyclopædia about micronations, small and often rather eccentric nations that are unrecognised by the wider international community. The wiki is being continually improved and updated by 67,458 editors, with content being moderated by a small group of staff and funded by our generous Patrons. Since its creation on 27 May 2005, the site has grown to become the largest micronation-related website on the Internet, with a total of 203,799 pages and 38,277 articles, of which 118 have achieved good article status. Before you start editing, it is recommended that you take a look at our content disclaimer, basic rules of editing, and the nation page guide.
2020 in the MicroWiki community
2020 (MMXX) was a leap year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2020th year of the Common Era (CE) and anno Domini (AD) designations, and the first year of the 2020s decade. It marks the fifteenth year since MicroWiki's initial foundation. The year began in the Discord Era, through the High Discord to Late Discord periods, and oversaw a number of significant events. The Grand Unified Micronational (GUM) retained its position as the largest and most influential intermicronational organisation, growing to a record-breaking number of forty-eight member states. The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic caused huge disruption; bringing in a huge response from the intermicronational community, it led to a number of retired micronationalists returning to the hobby contributing to a massive surge in activity. The community was hit with an outpouring of grief after the death of Nicholas Randouler, founder and 4th Prince of Posaf, on 3 June, which came with declarations of days of national mourning, places named after him, memorial services, posthumous awards and memorial videos.

Onopolissia's large network of funicular railways spans the hillsides of Capital State. First introduced in December 2022, the funiculars have become a lifeline to roadless communities on the hills.
