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 been in the world since at least the 19th century, with the practise of micronationalism growing hugely in the beginning of the 21st century as the creation of micronations became a quite common hobby and the Internet helped the coming of an online [[MicroWiki community|micronational community]]. Some commonly known micronations, which include [[Sealand]] and [[Liberland]], exist outside 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.
