A New Year's Micronation is a micronation founded on New Year's Day. Unlike other public holidays, 1 January is arguably the date at which the largest number of micronations are founded, and as such the term became widely used.

A few well-known establishments on New Year's Day include the Kingdom of Lovely (2005), Colony of Iego (later succeeded by the Federated Republics of A1; 2010), the Empire of Loveland (2017), the State of Gradonia and the Jusin Republic (both 2018). And notably, at midnight EST on 1 January 2020, the Phoklandian Free State was formed as a merger between the Kingdom of Phokland and the Grand Duchy of Navārdia.

In contrast, a micronation founded on New Year's Eve is called a New Year's Eve Micronation.
