One man nation

A One man nation (OMN), also referred to as an Egostan, is a phrase in micronational parlance used to refer to a state or other polity with a population consisting of a single person, or few people with a single person dominating all government functions. The term is a portmanteau of the Latin word ego ("I", singular first person nominative pronoun) and -stan, a common suffix for countries in Central Asia, which is Persian for "place of".

Definition

There is much dispute between the definition, while some in the community argue a One Man Nation is a nation that has one legal citizen others argue a One Man Nation may be a nation that only one person is active on.
