r/micronations is a subreddit on Reddit for micronational discussion. The subreddit advertises itself as "an official hub for micronations across the world." Since its creation in June 2009, it has grown to over 4,000 members, making it the largest micronational subreddit.[1]

The subreddit has received numerous criticisms from the wider micronational community, where it is known by some as the Reddit Sector, targeted at its alleged "unprofessionalism", spread of misinformation, hostile posts like threats and recognition of micronational warfare, including the TOES-Almendria War, and posts surrounding controversial micronations, such as Arkovia/Promatia, Reddit Nation and Almendria.[2]

History

The subreddit was created on 10 June 2009 by the user u/nowell, who also created r/micronation on the same day (which as of October 2020 has 300 members).[3]

From its early period, the subreddit received relatively little attention, until 2015 when its member count began growing exponentially; it reached 1,000 members on 4 November 2017. The subreddit reached 2,000 members on 4 June 2019, 3,000 on 26 May 2020 and 4,000 members in January 2021.[4]
