A '''micronation''' is any self-declared nation that says it is an [[w:Sovereign State|independent country]] but other countries see it as inexistent. Broadly speaking, micronations are made and developed as a hobby, with their claims to sovereignty considered trivial enough to be ignored by the conventional sovereign states whose territory they claim; micronations whose ultimate goal is to receive international recognition as sovereign states are termed [[Secessionism|secessionist]], and micronations without this goal are termed [[simulationism|simulationist]].
A '''micronation''' is any self-declared nation that says it is an [[w:Sovereign State|independent country]] but other countries see it as inexistent. Simply speaking, micronations are made and developed as a [[wikt:Hobby|hobby]], with their claims to sovereignty considered trivial enough to be ignored by the conventional sovereign states whose territory they claim; micronations whose ultimate goal is to receive international recognition as sovereign states are called [[Secessionism|secessionist]], and micronations without this goal are called [[simulationism|simulationist]].


Micronations have existed since the 19th century, with the practice of micronationalism growing hugely in the early 21st century as the making of micronations became a relatively mainstream hobby and the Internet facilitated the emergence of an online [[MicroWiki community|micronational community]]. Some well-known micronations, including [[Sealand]] and [[Liberland]], exist out of this wiki; others, like [[Austenasia]], and [[Molossia]], regularly have events and have made a presence on the Internet. Many English-speaking micronations are in [[MicroWiki sector]], which has been here since 2005.

==Definition==
A lot of soruces say micronations are, "self-declared countries not recognised by other states or international organisations like the United Nations". Wikipedia and WorldAtlas.com both say a micronation as a "[[wiktionary:Entity|entity]] that claims to be an independent nation or state but is not recognized by world governments or major international organizations". On its [[main page]], MicroWiki defines micronations as "small and often rather [[wiktionary:Eccentric|eccentric]] nations that are unrecognised by the wider international community" and in its article ''Micronation'' defines a micronation as a "political entity that claims to be a sovereign state but is not recognised as such by the wider international community".
