The Grand Unified Micronational, commonly abbrieviated as the GUM, is an intermicronational organisation with the aim of helping diplomatic relations between micronations, with a general focus on its own member states. Based around the MicroWiki Community and founded in January 2009, the GUM held an almost hegemonic sway over the community (especially under Robert Lethler's terms as Chairman) from the summer of 2009 until it declined in the summer of 2010.

The GUM's regular discussion of current micronational topics and the weekly meetings held every Saturday or Sunday in a Skype chatroom make it one of the most active intermicronational organisations in existence. It remains the only active general-purpose intermicronational organisation in the MicroWiki community, outliving the UNMCN, Organisation of Active Micronations, and IMTO.
