MicroWiki (MW), alternatively the Micronations Wiki, Micronational Wiki, MicroWikia[1] or a number of other names, is a free online encyclopedia that seeks to catalogue and document every aspect of the micronational phenomenon. Originally established in 2005, the project aims to establish an English micronational equivalent to the well-known and extremely popular online encyclopedia Wikipedia, using the same familiar content creation and maintenance tools. Like Wikipedia, all of our content is completely free and is available to the general public for fair use. MicroWiki is an open encyclopedia that any user can edit, with or without an account. This website does not attempt to copy or replace WikiProject Micronations at Wikipedia, but rather to develop a wiki that is able to deal with specific micronational subject matters in greater detail than Wikipedia can under its current policy content.

Whilst Wikipedia typically affords micronations a single page at most and has strict content policies that make it difficult for most micronations to earn a place there, MicroWiki accepts any and all micronations provided they adhere to (considerably more lenient) content policies. Instead of having a simple master page that describes their micronation, editors at MicroWiki can create specific pages for persons, government departments, historical events, important documents, concepts - anything that one could find on Wikipedia about a macronation. We accept a wide range of content, provided it adheres to our content guidelines and policies.

As a wiki, MicroWiki is maintained by a team of Administrative staff, but the actual content of the website is created and edited by ordinary users. All of our articles have been contributed to the wiki by our users, who work together collaboratively. All of our content is provided under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported License. This means that you can change any of the content on this wiki unless otherwise specified, and take content off this wiki and use it for any purpose. Your right to do this however is conditional - you need to attribute the work to MicroWiki or to its specific creators, and you can only share it under the same license that we offer it to you.
