A plush toy micronation, also known as a plush nation, is a micronation that claims that one or several non-sentient plush toys has had a role in micronational society or culture, or that grants citizenship to plush toys.[1] Notable examples include Sabia and Verona and Juclandia, both influential nations in the micronational community with functioning governments. Many plush toy micronations have full histories that they claim plush toys or other types of toys have taken part in. While many micronations grant citizenship to plush toys, few have plush toy heads of state or government, and some have different classes of citizenship to separate plush toys from human citizens.

Plush toys are highly integrated into the cultures of many of the nations which grant citizenship to them. In Sabia and Verona, plush toys dominate the population, making up about 80% of Sabia and Verona's 130 citizens. Sabia and Verona is one of the plush toy micronations to have full rights for plush citizens, including the recognition of the "ability [of plush toys] to make conscious decisions on a personal and social level", and to have a plush toy head of government. Other influential plush toy micronations do not have plush toy heads of government, and many do not have plush toy heads of state, including Sabia and Verona.

The oldest known plush toy micronation is Juclandia, and has influenced many other existing plush toy micronations, some of which were former Juclandian territories. Many micronations have also granted citizenship to plush toys in the early months after their establishment and later revoked citizenship, such as the Democratic Republic of Benjastan.
