It is governed under a federal semi-constitutional monarchy and a unicameral parliament. The Empire consists of five federal states. Each federal state is headed by its own monarch and may also include a head of government, with Alenshka being the seat of the Abeldane Monarchy and the King of Alenshka being the Monarch at the same time. Newton I is the current Monarch, with Stephen Freayth being the present Vorsitzender. The government is mostly based on the former German Empire, and the Empire maintains democratic values and basic micronational ideas to be integrated everywhere.

Democratic Duchy of Francisville

Flag of Francisville

Francisville (/ˈfrɑːnsɪs.vɪl/), officially the Democratic Duchy of Francisville (French: Duché démocratique de Francisville; Francillian: Groussherzuegdom vu Frankestädt, official translation Grand Duchy of Francisville), was an enclaved micronation situated in the Highlands of Scotland and landlocked around its borders by the United Kingdom. Grand Duke James I served as the only sovereign from the country's foundation until the dissolution of the monarchy by his own initiative in June 2011. Francisville rapidly became an influential MicroWiki nation primarily due to its role as a prominent member state of the Grand Unified Micronational during its early years. The country's role as an international negotiator during the Meissner-Antifan War and the Rhodesian War established Francisville as a major neutral power. The state was disestablished by referendum in 2011, leading to the June Convention and the establishment of the Federal Republic of Francisville. (more...)

Erephisia

Erephisian Flag

Erephisia is a semi-serious science-driven micronation based in the Greater Manchester, UK area. The project has been in existence since 2005 and has undergone many incarnations before being established as Erephisia on March 2, 2010. The area that now comprises Erephisia was once owned by the County of Greater Manchester, however President Neil saw Greater Manchester and indeed, the whole of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to be corrupt and politically inept and unfair. Tired of the prejudice and hatred he saw within the UK, President Neil founded Erephisia, hoping to set a standard of equal micronation. Erephisia began its existence as the Republic of Orbis on June 7, 2005 with the eleven-year-old Thomas Bainbridge as its President and his friend Billy Neil as its Prime Minister. However due to a lack of interest, Neil seceded two days later and Orbis collapsed soon after wards on the Fifteenth of June of the same year. (more...)

Essian Commonwealth

Essian Seal

Esse, officially the Essian Commonwealth (in Essian: Essiai Commensalocha), was a micronation founded in the aftermath of the dissolution of the Federated States of America, which gradually rose to become the foremost Houston sector micronation politically, diplomatically, and culturally.

Federated Republics of A1

Federated Republica of A1

The Federated Republics of A1 was founded on 4 November 2010, after the federation of all four protectorates of the former Most Glorious People's Republic of A1. It went on to become a prosperous and influential nation within the "MicroWiki Sphere". It was successor state to the Most Glorious People's Republic of A1, although both simply used A1 in general communications. A1 prided itself on not being a micronation based entirely virtually, but existing mainly in the physical world, through such activities as military exercises, government meetings and government projects. It officially "moved away" from the MicroWiki Sector in November 2011, following a dispute within the Organisation of Active Micronations between Gordon Freeman, founder of A1, and Sebastian Linden over the latter's use of the former's real name. However, for all intents and purposes this "move" was purely symbolic, with A1 maintaining close ties with the MicroWiki Sector until its dissolution, later also forging ties with the Micras Sector. Freeman left micronationalism on 13 May 2012 after another dispute regarding the use of his real name, this time with George Cruikshank. After a resultant lengthy period of inactivity, A1 collapsed in August 2012. (more...)

Flag Model of Theodian history

The Flag Model of Theodian history divides Theodian history into separate eras for each national flag. Between 2010 and now, Theodia has gone through eight different national flags, and it has changed to a new one at a pretty steady pace; about once a year. This makes Theodia's national flags a convenient proxy for the normal passage of time, and therefore a reasonable way to apportion the country's history. The Flag Model dates back to early 2011, when Theodia changed to its second flag. That first flag change was meant to symbolize a rebirth of the nation – a separation of the past from the present.

The Grand Unified Micronational, commonly abbrieviated as the GUM, is an intermicronational organisation with the aim of helping diplomatic relations between micronations, with a general focus on its own member states. Based around the MicroWiki Community and founded in January 2009, the GUM held an almost hegemonic sway over the community from the summer of 2009 until it declined in the summer of 2010 and became dormant. Brought back to activity in August 2011, the GUM's regular discussion of current micronational topics and the fortnightly meetings held every second Sunday in a Skype chatroom make it one of the most active intermicronational organisations currently in existence (more...).

MicroWiki Influence Survey

Logo of the OAM

The MicroWiki Influence Survey, formerly known as the Organisation of Active Micronations Influence Survey, is a survey used to rank MicroWiki nations by influence. Created by Tom Turner, the survey has been conducted five times and is the most prestigious ranking of micronations within the MicroWiki community. Originally intended as a list to determine which micronations were "micronational superpowers" with only OAM member nations voting, it soon grew to encompass the entire MicroWiki Sector with numerous micronationalists taking part. Known as the OAM Influence Survey during the first four surveys, it was renamed the MicroWiki Influence Survey prior to the start of the fifth survey. Four surveys have been conducted so far with two listings each while a fifth survey is being conducted during July 2011. While the first three surveys were conducted by Turner, the fourth survey was run by Joe Foxon and the fifth by both Turner and Barnaby Hands. (more...)

Throughout his micronational career and until his passing he was the main reporter and Director of the St.Charlian Observer, having succeeded Magnus de Armis in November 2009. A St.Charlian citizen since late August 2009, he gained intermicronational attention during the Observergate, when he earned the Presidential Citation Ribbon for an article regarding a diplomatic crisis between St.Charlie and the now-defunct Democratic People's Republic of Erusia. On 8 November 2009, he became the first Press Secretary of the Grand Unified Micronational, a position he voluntarily resigned from on 22 August 2010. His articles generally spoke of the main events taking place in the MicroWiki Community, that he described through "Eat at Nicks", the editorial and column of the Observer. Many of his publications were often followed by varied comments and opinions, which also made him one of the most acclaimed and controversial journalists of the MicroWiki Community. Although nominated for Finest Writing in the Schneider Awards, he later lost due to being considered "too controversial" against Gordon Freeman, but nevertheless received an "honourable mention" on 12 April 2011.

Observergate

Observergate front cover

"Observergate" was a journalism scandal that erupted in September 2009 and was centred on the St.Charlian Observer and the Democratic People's Republic of Erusia. Carl Pierson, an Erusian legislator, sparked the conflict after he sent the Observer a damning letter describing Erusia as dictatorial and undemocratic. Tensions between Erusia and St.Charlie escalated rapidly and following the publishing of Erusia's official response in the Observer, a two-month period of cold relations followed. Although at the time it appeared to be a genuine information leak, in light of the departure of Robert Lethler from the community Observergate has been shown be a complex machination of his, intended to investigate the effects of newspaper censorship on the liberal democracies of the community. Prior to the scandal, the Federal Republic of St.Charlie and the Democratic People's Republic of Erusia enjoyed positive foreign relations and bilateral ties, having previously signed a mutual non-aggression pact which prevented both countries from involving themselves in the affairs of the other.

Reylan Imperial Triumvirate

Imperial Flag

The Reylan Imperial Triumvirate (also commonly referred to as The Reylan Empire, The Imperium or The Empire) is a territorial European based micronation, with a government based in a landlocked enclave within the United Kingdom. De jure a decentralised imperial triumvirate, the Empire is de facto an absolute monarchy, ruled by the Emperor, HIM Taeglan I Nihilus, who is also its founder. Current Imperial policy precludes Imperial membership in intermicronational organisations, although the Empire is active in calling for an end to what the Emperor has described as 'frivolous' micronational activities, as well as an open and outspoken opposition to the so-called 'wars' perpetuated by some members of the micronational community. By the standards of many micronations, the Empire is stable, having not had a change of governmental form for over four years. This, combined with a lack of scandals and negative interactions with other micronations has lead to the Empire being considered 'dull' by some; however, the Empire in fact has a highly developed infrastructure, and entertains cordial relations with many micronations within and without the MicroWiki sphere.

UNC Logo

The Union of Nemkhav Communists (the UNC) (Nemkhav: Antas Communistja Nemkhavi) is a political party in the Nemkhav Federation, and is the current ruling party of Nemkhavia, holding four of the seven seats in the Nemkhav Legislature, the House of Territories. The Party's roots lie in the former Democratic Revolutionary Front, which had combined four left wing parties in Nemkhavia into a bloc but during March 2012 the Front, as it was known in Nemkhavia, moved to become a more defined political force and as a result unified the four former parties of the DRF into a single party with regional sub-sections, although the UNC was reduced to three members for a brief period of time due to the end of Eragia’s backing for the Party because of its shift to the newly reestablished Vanguard for Freedom. However, New Winterdown soon replaced it, restoring the UNC’s majority in the House of Territories. (more...)
